WDYTYA Episode 204: Kim Cattrall

I have been trav­el­ing, and only today got a chance to see the Kim Cat­trall episode of Who Do You Think You Are?, or at least the last 45 min­utes of it.

In this episode, Ms. Cat­trall, with the help of geneal­o­gists in the United King­dom, runs down her miss­ing grand­fa­ther. He had aban­doned her grand­mother, mother, and two aunts some 70 years ago.

If any­thing the shows are get­ting more and more engag­ing. This episode was less about the doc­u­ments and more about what must have been going on in the star’s bigamist grandfather’s head.

You can see why the show has been renewed for another sea­son. This is engag­ing tele­vi­sion. While, as a geneal­o­gist, I could quib­ble that most sto­ries are not this heart-wrenching, nor do they involve this much decep­tion, I sim­ply can­not deny that this is popcorn-munching enter­tain­ment, designed to keep peo­ple com­ing back for more.
