Mr. Rogers doc feels right for our less-than-neighborly times

"Won't You Be My Neighbor?" is a warm, nostalgic look back at the life and career of Fred Rogers, and his signature children's program, "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood." But the new documentary also contemplates the beloved TV host's battle on behalf of kindness and civility, one whose outcome appears very much in doubt.

'Mister Rogers' special offers a lot to like

The timing seems right to celebrate "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," not only because it's the show's 50th anniversary, but thanks to its symbolic place as one of those programs PBS -- a service perpetually under siege, but certainly more so now -- has uniquely championed. Enter "Mister Rogers: It's You I Like," an incredibly warm, at times unexpectedly moving trip down memory lane.
