Family Tree

Thanks to a free HBO Freeview this weekend, I was able to watch Family Tree, the HBO television series by Christopher Guest and Jim Piddock. Finally. For months I’ve followed chatter about the show on Twitter. And now I know what all the fuss is about. The show is fantastic! Love the writing — although I use that word very loosely! Love the characters — everyone will find some resemblance to one’s own circle of family, friends, and acquaintances. Who doesn’t have a family member with some odd quirks? Who doesn’t have a friendship spanning a long time? Who hasn’t met someone who knows a little about a lot? Genealogists will immediately relate to the twists and turns of family history research — things are not always as they appear. Even with a magnifying glass. So cheers to the “Chadwick” family! I can identify!
