Who Do You Think You Are?

NBC's been running a promo for a new reality show by that name, which appears to riff on celebrity genealogies.

Voiceover: Sarah Jessica Parker has two Emmys, a Golden Globe, and a great-great-grandmother who was a witch in Salem.

Me: Did she run amuck?

Amuck, amuck, amuck... OOOF!

Oh, look, another BBC show NBC ripped off instead of coming up with something new.

>.<

Wow, is THAT the wrong link. Thanks, Wikipedia Disambiguation!

Here's the tv show, not the Spice Girls album.

So I'm not the only person who thought that then? *snickers*

Not by a long shot, I suspect.

*sigh* they really are doing it then. I was hoping it would all make a noise like a hoop and go away. I love the British version so much. So many classic moments:

1) Jeremy Irons wandering goofily around in a cemetery, unable to keep track of his dogs or find the gravestone he is seeking, suddenly getting a call on cell phone - and stopping the whole thing to have a quick chat.

2) Robert Lindsey's VERY elderly aunts suddenly revealing to Robert (and all the world) that they'd had two other sisters AND a bastard half brother - then falling into a debate whether aforementioned brother Bert was tall or medium.

3) Boris finding out he is related to George III

4) Everything about the Stephen Fry episode

on and on and on . . .

Oh please NBC. Don't mess it up too much.
