Episode Summary

This two-hour-long introductory special, which acted a s a pilot for the series, asked the question : "Do we know why our states look the way they do?" Congenial host Brian Unger than proceeds to take us on a fascinating road trip all across the country while captivating us with homespun tales concerning the formation of our country - and the camerawork, both putting us in the car with Brian and showing us around the country, is first-rate HD fare. This special, and the series which followed 13 months later (using much of this content), examines, as the History Channel puts it, "how every state is a puzzle piece ultimately revealing the unique geography, political and social history of America."
