Rosie O’Donnell’s episode last night was great. The fact that her family arrived in the United States from Canada and not straight from Ireland highlighted an emigration pattern found in many families.
Next week’s episode features Kim Cattrall. The preview note says that “Kim unlocks the 70-year-old mystery behind her grandfather’s abandonment of his young family.” Kim Cattrall appeared on the original UK series and this seems to be the same episode.
The story itself is extremely interesting and takes quite a few twist and turns. I can understand why it is going to be repeated on American television. I wonder if they filmed some of the scenes again. The sad part is how much they will have to cut for the extra commercial time.
Now the question is will they be repeating the UK show for Jerry Springer as well?
