In danger of becoming just another reality show
HGTV enticed me into watching this show with teasers while I watched the Rose Parade. It certainly seemed like an original idea, and a timely one. HGTV is polluted with a plethora of home makeover shows, and I'd rather see the latest in solar panel technology as opposed to how to glue hay to a wall for a "new look".
I quickly became disappointed while watching, however, as much of the show was devoted to the conflict (real or contrived) between Ed and his wife Rachelle. O.K. already, I GET IT, Rachelle doesn't like to conserve energy, and Ed does.
There's a lot of angles they can work to make this show not only informative, but also entertaining.
You've got one more episode to turn it around, Ed, then I'm bailing.
