Re: Television (no longer temporary)

The West Wing special (HBO Max) was pretty good. The beat of that show, the dialog, etc..just picked up where it left off. Done more like a play than TV. The actors fit their roles just like before (even the substitute for Leo was a nice fit). Good stuff.

Unless they have some discount "Masters April 9th-12th 2020" gear.
You joke but the email from the masters when they went fanless this November encourage folks to keep their tickets for 2020 as a commemorative item.
