If you prefer to watch the same episodes now or later at your leisure, you can also watch them online at http://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/who-do-you-think-you-are/episodes-season-4/296860. However, the online versions do cost $1.99 each. I also had to disable the pop-up blocker in my web browser in order to view the Who Do You Think You Are? online videos.
