A combination of This Old House and Ask This Old House.
On PBS for decades this might be considered reality but it better listed as home improvement. Last week they finished a Los Angelos project and now they are repeating a Renovation of a 1940s House.
I was always drawn to this show because it simple there are no gimmicks and you get to see something from beginning to the end. Shows like Extreme Home Makeover, Trading Spaces, or Flip This House are a joke compared to this original. Teaching history and home improvemnet from the basics to complex is what the show is about but seeing a beautiful finished home is also great.
Airing every Saturday in NYC channel 13 it became a ritual in my home. Granted I would still take a brownstone or penthouse any day but country living looks good on TV.
I have no doubt this show would be one of many that will soon disappear especially since some fools are attacking PBS. For now it is still must see TV.
