It's been slightly more than a month when this was aired on the local television here. I know this is being part of the National Geographic's Is It Real? series, but then somehow I had always missed it when it was on the cable here.

So imagine the surprise I get when it was on the free-to-air as part of The Da Vinci Code specials. Taking viewers to some of the places mentioned in the book, it tries to debunk the myths raised in the bestseller. Even with also the help of the academics as well. I had almost forgotten whether those who wrote about the bloodline and everything in between were invited, because it almost became a blur to me as the documentary progresses.

I almost could not catch up with the pace of it then. Maybe at that time when it aired here, it was days before I went to watch the movie adaptation and I had not really did much of my own personal research as yet at that time.

Anyhow, this one is pretty average. At least to me.
