Reviews starting for PBS Lincoln Highway show

Reviews are starting for Rick Sebak’s A Ride Along the Lincoln Highway, airing next week. I’ll tell you more about what’s in it in the coming days, but here’s a review from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette‘s Rob Owen that went out on the Scripps wire. An excerpt: “Fans of Sebak’s love letters to Americana won’t be disappointed as he visits both ends of the highway – at Times Square in New York City and next to a bus stop in San Francisco – and many locations in between…. Unlike past Sebak productions, ‘Lincoln Highway’ offers more of a historical focus with less emphasis on oddball Americans (or maybe Lincoln Highway enthusiasts just aren’t prone to saying wacky things).”

    I’ve been a huge fan of Rick Sebak’s work going all the way back to “Pennsylvania Diners and Other Roadside Restaurants.” I never remember “oddball Americans… saying wacky things” in ANY Sebak program. Rick has always treated his subjects with respect and affection.

    I’ve found it’s more likely people from outside the enthusiast culture, who don’t really understand it, that will consider roadside enthusiasts “oddball,” “wacky” sorts.
