If you missed some of the episodes of last season's Who Do You Think You Are? (U.S. version), you can now purchase the entire series on DVD. Each episode features a different celebrity; season one's lineup consists of Sarah Jessica Parker, Emmitt Smith (NFL star), Lisa Kudrow (also one of the program's executive producers), Matthew Broderick (also Parker's husband), Brooke Shields, Susan Sarandon, and Spike Lee.
The series on DVD does not include advertisements. Therefore, what is listed as a 60-minute program actually runs in about 41 minutes. Also, one of the many complaints of the first season involve the pause before every commercial break when the story also stops dead in its tracks to run clips of what's coming up, followed by more clips of what you've just seen. Thankfully, that was corrected in Season 2. Another "problem" with Season 1 is that every shows begins with a long teaser for the entire season, followed by another teaser for the show you're about to watch. The result is about 20 minutes of original material in each episode.
