I mean, would a show about baseball's all-time hit king and a former Playboy model be all that interesting?
Turns out...yes. Yes, it is.
And here's why.
After just a couple of minutes, you learn that Rose is exactly the dirty old man you figured he would be. And, Kim, well...she's every bit the plastic future-trophy wife you'd expect. But, beneath all that, they both seem to genuinely care about each other and, honestly, that's what you want from a show that, among other things, is showcasing the differences between a 71-year-old and his much younger wife-to-be.
I just wish someone would cut the cord between Kim's daughter Cassie and her cell phone. Oooooh, kids these days!
Hit King...I know you're reading this. Perhaps fodder for a future episode? Hint. Hint.
So, in case you missed it, enjoy "Pete Rose: Hits and Mrs." online while you still can. And, yeah, my favorite part...the monogrammed "Hit King" collared shirts.
Super classy. I want.
