Many GeneaBloggers have been posting their evaluations after each show of the new television program Who Do You Think You Are? Because so many seem to be doing this I have chosen not make it a ritual to do so. Justify this to mean, I love the show, I will watch every episode, and I am super pleased a program of this nature is airing on public TV during prime time.
Last nights program centered on Lisa Kudrow. For me it doesn't matter who the program focuses on, I just know I have to watch it. Last weeks program on Emmit Smith was suppose to be the most compelling of all seven shows to be aired. I have to agree that the show was very compelling. After seeing that particular episode I think I lowered my standards on what to expect with the future programs.
Lisa Kudrow's segment surprised me completely. It was compelling too, but in a different way. Emotions flooded and tears were in my eyes for happiness, sadness and then fulfillment. So very moved was I by the show...again. Every one of these programs have totally grabbed me in one way or another. Just when I thought the programs couldn't get any better I was proven wrong.
I hope you are watching WDYTYA. Prime time television hasn't aired a program in many, many years that has caught my attention like this one has. When I say I would go to the movies and watch a particular movie again (which is extremely rare for me) that really says something. These three episodes of WDYTYA have left me feeling exactly that way. I do not want the programs to end AND I want to watch them again. Kudos to WDYTYA!
I wasn't home the majority of the day yesterday and never imagined I would have been out until 8pm when WDYTYA airs. I barely made it home in time, but I made it by a few minutes. Upon sitting down to watch the show, I received the perfect blend to go with the show. My companion book to WDYTYA by Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak had arrived in the mail, much quicker than I expected. I can not wait to delve into her book! Have you bought the book? Have you read it? I plan to start reading it tonight!
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
(Update - Thank you John Newman for correcting my error naming Sarah Jessica Parker as who this segment was about. It was actually focused on Lisa Kudrow! My deepest apologies, corrections made 3/22/2010)
