The White line is the life line to a nation.
26 March 2015 | by feakesSee all my reviews

I saw Movin on as a kid. and I loved it and I am now becoming a fan again watching the show over the internet. Any one who says its a trucking show is wrong Movin On is about a Trucker named Sonny Pruitt and his partner Will Chandler and the adventures they get into with the people they meet .

The pilot episode IN TANDEM was a perfect example of story telling and how quickly it takes to gt to the heart of a story . It works its not flawless but it works.

The real stars of the show were the Green Kenworth and Claude Akins who simply is the star of the show. Its Claude's show and without him it would lose something. As a show its a great time capsule of the mid 70's . Would A remake of Movin On make it today ? I doubt it. because it at its heart Movin On is a human interest story. and that sadly just does not play well in today's market. Why because No one has the time for it. But if you are a fan of this type of show and you got the time to hunt for it. you'll be well rewarded .
