When I was sent a copy of Who Do You Think You Are? Season 1 for review, I must admit I had never seen the series before. The only thing I knew about the show was they followed as celebrities traced their family genealogy.
As I began watching the DVD, I started hoping I wouln’t lose an hour of my life that I could never get back. The first episode starred Sarah Jessica Parker as she traced her family back to the Salem witch trials. As I watched, I started finding this episode more and more intriguing, I even shed a few tears! Next up was Emmitt Smith, he traced his family roots back to slavery and learned some interesting things about his family and their slave master. Next up was Lisa Kudrow who traced her roots back to the Holocaust, I once again found myself in tears! Watching each episode I found myself fascinated by each celebrity’s story! Some of the stories made me laugh, some made me cry! As I sat back it got me to thinking about my family and my own history; I found myself wanting to know more about where I came from. If you truly enjoy history like I do or simply nosey like I am this is definitely a must see show!
Who Do You Think You Are? Season 1 was released on DVD 3/15/2011 and I definitely recommend you check it out it may even get you to wondering Who Do You Think You Are?
