How many times are they going to cut to a closeup of a PC screen that shows the Ancestry . com logo at the top left while the data itself could just as easily have been presented without the need to show the PC at all?
Haha, yes I have noticed that. At times the show seems like a one hour ad.
And you're right, she must have known most of what she was told. But that, to me, wasn't as annoying as the first part when she finally understood why her grandmother was tough on her mother. I cringed when I watched that. Another thing that annoys me about the show is how they try to fit in those "amazing" coincidences. Brooke Shields studied French in college and then discovers she has French ancestry. And then Matthew Broderick finds a Civil War Colonel ancestor names Robert, and he played a Colonel named Robert in Glory.
Anyway, in my opinion, Brooke Shields' was the worst episode yet.
