For Americans who didn't have access to what happened at the Beijing Paralympics this summer (and that would be all of us who don't have easy cable access to foreign TV where coverage did exist), there's a 90-minute special on NBC this afternoon that has gotten some good reviews.
If you want more of the same four years from now, the network needs to know:
It will be aired the (NBC) National Broadcasting Company on Sunday at 2:30 P.M. Eastern Standard time.
And also the Universal Sports Television Network on beginning Monday, Nov. 10th though the 16, at 7:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.
It is important that you tune in to these games because it is perceived as a test by these networks. It will be a test to see if Americans will watch disabled athletes compete in the same events as non disabled athletes.
Those reviews above are positive and supportive of better Paralympic coverage. They also try to be self-aware about the "inspirational" stereotype of disability, with varying success.
If you catch the show, post your thoughts on it in comments. Or, if you had access to coverage back in August and recall your favorite moment or athlete, post that and we can compare notes.
