Quotes

C.J. Cregg: It's called poetry, me bucko. Maybe, just maybe. just maybe, those 42 people are teaching us something about ourselves. That freedom is the glory of God, that democracy is its birthright, and that our vote matters.

A tremendous, timely production
15 October 2020 | by jwrasseSee all my reviews

Even with a pandemic, the cast and crew of The West Wing united for a beautiful retelling of a classic episode. Interspersed with touching calls to action and shot superbly with coronavirus mitigation measures in place, this special beckons us to expect the best-from our entertainment, from our country, and from ourselves.
