The West Wing was one of the biggest series around when it aired between 1999-2006, putting a whole new spin on The White House. Incredibly, after all these years, many of us still haven’t seen it, but that is all set to change with each and every episode now available to watch On Demand here in Australia.
The West Wing Series Preview
The West Wing is a part of the White House where all of the President’s senior staff come together to make big decisions. Sheen plays fictional US president Jed Barlet, a Democrat from New Hampshire who goes head to head with his controversial Republican counterparts.
The series can easily be considered as a precursor for more recent hit series such as House Of Cards and Scandal, which also shine a light on the goings-on behind the walls of American politics.
Starring Martin Sheen (The Departed), Rob Lowe (Wayne’s World) and Allison Janney (Juno) every episode of The West Wing is now available on demand in Australia – and using the information in this guide you can find exactly how and where to watch it.
