Some clever person seems to have put all the transcripts of THE WEST WING
up on the Web. Transcripts, not scripts, but still, that is some fine writing there.
Labels: downloadable scripts
I see zero value in transcripts since all you're getting of the original is a transcript of the dialog. Anything the transcriber writes for action is going to be a world away from what was actually written.
If anyone wants the real thing (I did), you might want one of these:
The West Wing Script Book
The West Wing Seasons 3 & 4: The Shooting Scripts: Eight Teleplays by Aaron Sorkin
Some things are just worth the money.
Where those two books are concerned, no argument!
The script books may have a whole host of fantastic stuff in them, but they don't have the full 7 seasons. Unfortunately, the transcript site seems to have gone offline, probably due to domain fees. It was a very valuable resource and far better for searching than the books.
