programming, also usually known as special interest releases, ask the viewer to
open up in ways that can be good and can also be problematic. As a sort of confessional without
restrictions, this can be helpful, but you have to really question such
programming to be on the safe side.
The Beautiful Truth (w/Dying To Have Known & Gerson
Miracle) expands the message about cancer treatment we covered on the DVD
of Gerson Miracle at this link:
more explanation about it, but I am still not totally convinced, though the
diet suggested could not hurt. I still
do not take it as a substitute for more serious help.
said, the semi-documentary (with a touch of “reality TV) series Who Do You Think You Are? – Season One
(2010) has seven popular people (producer Lisa Kudrow, Sarah Jessica Parker,
Brooke Shields, Emmitt Smith, Matthew Broderick, Spike Lee and Susan Sarandon)
going back into their family tree pasts and finding out things they never knew.
you are a fan of a given participant or not, I was impressed that they had the
guts to be so open and personal on TV about such private affairs and commend
them for having the guts to participate.
Those who you like will impress you and those you did not like or did
not know will show you a rare side you might not expect. This is an interesting set worth your time.
1.78 X 1 digital High Definition images on the three programs on Blu-ray are not
great and much of the footage in each is not exactly the epitome of HD, plus
there is very little film footage if any.
The only good thing I can say is that Gerson Miracle is not as soft or noisy as its DVD equivalent, but
not dramatically so. The anamorphically
enhanced 1.78 X 1 image on Think is
a full professional HD shoot with only occasional old footage and is sadly the
equal of the Blu-ray. Both have Dolby
Digital sound with 5.1 on the Blu-ray and 2.0 Stereo on the DVD set, all again
extras on the Blu-ray are the two bonus programs, if you want to count them and
we do, while Think has no extras.
