Who Do You Think You Are? – Minnie Driver Love

I really love the show Who Do You Think You Are?

I love the full circle, Hollywood style, tell us the story in a condensed format, emotion packed journeys.

I especially enjoyed Minnie Driver’s episode from this past Wednesday.  I was transfixed by her story.  There is a haunting beauty to her journey.  She has the kind of story that breaks researcher’s hearts.  Secrets, hidden truths, tragedies, stories lost when a loved one dies.  Her journey uncovers many of those secrets and hidden truths.   She is able to find amazing connections with her past.  It’s simply lovely.

If you haven’t been watching Who Do You Think You Are? you can watch full episodes at TLC.  You can also find UK episodes on youtube.  Past seasons of the America show are probably somewhere, I just don’t know where.  🙂

  1. That was a good episode. Hers and Christina Applegate’s are my favorites. You can tell they’ve got a juice story when they don’t use the “Coming up” and “What You’ve Missed” filler to bookend every commercial break.

    1. No kidding! Too much good stuff to waste time with recaps and spoilers. I also really loved Christina Applegate’s episode. Rita Wilson’s was another favorite of mine.

  2. I posted a link to an interesting interview with Dan Bucatinsky, the co-producer of WDYTYA, but I think wordpress put it in your spam folder. Look up the Family Tree magazine blog. If you’re interested.

  3. I loved this show and used to watch it on Hulu. Then we dropped cable TV. But we picked up Hulu+. Now it seems they only show short clips. I can’t seem to get anything current on Amazon, Hulu+ or Netflix. 🙁

  4. I really want to watch the latest US series, but can never seem to find the full episodes. I went onto the TLC site a while ago and was able to watch the clips but whenever I went to watch a full episode – nothing. But we had Minnie Driver’s episode as one of the previous series here in the UK, it was great. We have a series running at the moment over here, I never miss an episode!

      1. Everything is good back at work thanks! Had a couple of days off sick this week due to tonsillitis – something I get quite a lot. But it’s been good to be back working with all my friends again!

        1. I’m glad you are enjoying work! Sorry to hear you’ve been sick. I can relate, I have trouble with my sinuses. I’ve just been sick also. It’s no fun, even when you are used to it.

          1. It’s like you start to feel it coming on and you just think “oh no, not again!” Thankfully starting to feel a bit better – just got to avoid talking for a while (which is kind of hard for me!)
