It took me several hours to work through this. I really tried to distance myself and critique this film as dispassionately as possible.
Well, it wasn’t possible, so it this seems like I was gushing, apologies. But I was entranced and locked in. Just a masterful job. Run to your recording devices or set your calendars to watch it.March 29, 2018 at 10:42 am #56724
It’s really a shame that such a limited audience will have access
to this film. Was the intention to present it only to a regional
market?March 29, 2018 at 3:05 pm #56770
The documentary will get a larger audience in the future. Besides dozens of airings on cable stations in Pittsburgh, Utah and out west, it will also be available on West Virginia Public TV. At some point in the future it will be available for streaming, though the details of that online access are still being worked out.March 29, 2018 at 4:55 pm #56779
Any news on what Pgh stations will carry it and when? I suppose it will be ATT (ROOT). They are good for carrying a lot of WVU stuff.March 29, 2018 at 5:08 pm #56781
“Hot Rod” will air on various TV channels. It will initially be available on April 3 at 7 p.m. on AT&T Sportsnet-Pittsburgh, April 8 at 7 p.m. on AT&T Sportsnet-Rocky Mountain and on April 16 at 8 p.m. on WVU Public Broadcasting stations. Each of the channels will rebroadcast the documentary multiple times over the next year. Eventually the plan is to stream the documentary online as well, but those details have not been completed yet.April 3, 2018 at 8:54 pm #57023
” I want to go ………. Home”
That’s what Hot Rod said to his daughter in his last days. Home. Meaning to WV. That was home to him.April 3, 2018 at 9:03 pm #57026
Really well done and glad I got to watch it on Root where I live.
Really enjoyed the Genes scenes.April 4, 2018 at 7:06 am #57057
The things from Gene’s were great. Lived two blocks from there one year of my WVU student career.April 4, 2018 at 8:28 am #57060
Ahhhhh, Gene’s. One stop shop for a beer, hot dog and a hair cut. They had the best crappy hot dogs in town.April 4, 2018 at 10:14 am #57063
AT&T Sports Pittsburgh (ROOT) will air Hot Rod’s film next Tues 4/10 at 7:00 pm and 12:00 midnight.
Root usually airs the PIrates, but they have a day off between the Cubs home opener and 2nd game. Even if the opener is postponed I would think the Pirates game would be played as an afternoon game at Wrigley.April 4, 2018 at 11:40 am #57068
