It's not being shown on our local PBS stations. However, you can watch Helvetica for free on Netflix. And I also highly recommend it.

#A: Didn't say Helvetica was a "font"; I made a call to Font Freaks. Besides, this one is neither. It's a movie. pppbbbttt... (Also, "It's not a TUMAHH!" )

#B: Alliteration trumps exactitude anyway. Feter Fiper ficked a feck of fickled font freaks.

It was on KQED last night at 11 pm. I might watched if I had been reminded yesterday.

Recorded it with my eyeTV last night. Have not had time to watch it yet. On the list of things to do for the upcoming weekend.

Try to record from an HD channel. I recorded off a SD channel and they just cropped the sides instead of scaling the picture down.
