I’ve been looking for things not to like in this series. Haven’t found many.
Give it five stars so far. If they keep this up — if they can maintain the quality — they will have produced a classic.
Mr. Sorkin, however, doesn’t mind bucking the tide. ‘I think the reason it’s been reviewed as far-fetched is that it’s far-fetched,’ he wrote in an e-mail. ‘Every bit as far-fetched as a Democratic administration that gets stuff done,’ he added, referring to the accomplished — and entirely fictional — Bartlet administration in ‘The West Wing,’ which he also wrote.
