On the whole this is a fun show to watch - the idea that old homes are capable of a 2nd life elsewhere beside the junk pile is very applicable in today's throw away society.
Some of the "teams" are a bit forced (the Snow Sisters always feel a bit over the top in a fake way), and one team in particular (the young "hip-hop" team) are just freaking annoying and are thankfully dropped a few seasons later. I get that "drama" is important to shows like these, but annoying drama just makes me want to turn off the show. Also glad to see that some minor characters (the female GC who starts out helping the Snow Sisters) are being promoted to actual "hosts" in their own right.
I'll keep buying the series (I think there's five seasons) cause I think what the show represents is important and ultimately entertaining.
one of my wife's favorite shows, she and i enjoy watching the good natured competition, and seeing how these people take something that a lot of folks would set fire to, and turn it into a very nice structure. Some very outside the box thinking and planning goes on here. The teams are diverse in their approach to each situation. Some see junk while others see an entirely different outcome for it. Some of the houses they get are very bad and require extensive renovation, while others are in fair to good shape and are almost ready to sell again with very little work. Sometimes they take things, like storage containers, and convert them into dwelling places.
