The West Wing on DVD in Region 1

Finally, the wait is over. The West Wing was on DVD overseas, and then it moved into syndication on Bravo, and now finally it's coming out in DVD in North America in mid-November.
Catch what at the time was the best show on television at it's peak. Really good stuff. Reminisce about the days when Sorkin was at the peak of his creative powers, before he began clashing with NBC, before Sam Seaborn (Rob Lowe) left, all of that.
Supposedly Sorkin's working on a new show based on the book Live from New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live. Really entertaining book which I read last holiday season, containing the recollections of almost everyone who worked on the show over the years. Sure, there's some juicy gossip (lots of sex and drugs), but it also gives you insight in to the insane creative process and environment which fostered it. It's not surprising that Sorkin, who wrote a behind-the-scenes look at a daily sports news show like Sportscenter (Sports Night, also quite good), would be attracted to this rich source material.
