A brief history of The West Wing
Story-lines Alongside many serial dramas of a similar nature, The West Wing had story arcs that stretched not only over many episodes but even over entire seasons. This was coupled with the fact that each individual episode had its own storyline and the viewer did not need to follow an entire series from beginning to end to get enjoyment from each episode. That said, newcomers to the series might certainly benefit from watching a few of the episodes from the beginning to get a feel for the characters. Awards won During its first series The West Wing won a record nine Emmys - this was the most awards won at the time for a programme that was in its first series. The West Wing comes in at fourth of all time (as of 12.07.11) in the number of awards won by a series; the total number of awards won is 27.
