User Reviews

Great show that is very informative, educational, and most of all entertaining.
21 June 2001 | by Brian-272See all my reviews

When I find that I want to know about the life or career of a famous person then, I always know the show to turn to that is "Biography" on A&E. For many years from Monday till Friday at 8PM this A&E show has kept many of us updated and taught us history lessons about the life and times both showing the good and bad of our favorite movie stars and politicians. "Biography" is very informative, educational, and makes great entertainment also.
