Apologies, but it's time to vent...

Yard Crashers? Trading Spaces? Flip This House? All these supposed "surprise some poor sap in a hardware store and 'help' them improve their property" shows? How pathetic. How unbelievably Hollywood typical! Do you want to make interesting TV and REALLY help people? Pass by these upper middle to high income families.. Let them fix their OWN damn lawns.

Crash a house or apartment in FAIR HAVEN or some poor neighborhood in the bad part of BRIDGEPORT. Help people who REALLY would be appreciative. Choose an elderly couple on a fixed income, who MAYBE earn $1200 a month on Social Security and have to spend the bulk of that on rent, food, and medicine. Help some single Mother who can't make ends meet, but wants to provide a decent, healthy, simple life for their child but can't afford to.

You want riveting television? Helping that pathetic blue hair wealthy woman and filming her whine about how "she's VERY upset if she DOESN'T get her Cedar walk-in closet in the finished basement" is NOT RIVETING television.

Flip the house or apartment of someone destitute, who will be able to show REAL gratitude, who'll treasure your televised gift for LONGER than the three months it takes your normal greedy, selfish client to resell your work...

THAT program, I would watch each and every week....
