After only one episode, this show has grabbed me by the heart, head, and throat and shows no sign of loosening it's grip. i've always had a fascination with "true stories", and when you add history, genealogy, and celebs to that mix, i am hooked.
As the subjects meet with family, librarians, genealogists and historians, it's intriguing to see the results of what's uncovered. Will their worst fears be confirmed, will their ancestry increase the pride they already have for their families, or will it be a blend of both. And of course some of what is uncovered cannot help but bring a tear to the eye, be it of joy or sorrow.
Who Do You Think You Are? airs on NBC, Fridays at 8:00pm Please check your local listings.
