path: Home Differences in The West Wing World
For recent differences between the "West Wing" world and our own, see the particular episode it turned up on: at the top of most pages of second and third season shows there are "Query" listings under the writer, and the date of broadcast. Those Queries will direct you to different aspects of the show.
Creating a "living" (fictional) character is a monumental task. Creating a group of believable characters is, of course, even greater. And creating a whole world should be approached with fear and trepidation and a good research assistant.
We have developed questions about how this world works. At first we tried to divide up our Queries into what we saw as Continuity Problems (internal consistency) and World Differences. But the lines began to blur after awhile and some things didn't fall neatly into one group or the other. So we are will now divide our Queries into some broad fields.
Some of Our Queries are Things We are Confused About, Some Are Questions From Other Viewers To Which We Actually Have Answers. There is no order to the following list --- numbers are just to keep things straight (Another list with different Queries (within some of the same categories) is under Continuity Queries):
Additional material added constantly.
