Anyone who has ever had their home renovated knows how expensive and risky the process of home renovation is.
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition was on the air from 2003-2012. Hosted by Ty Pennington, the premise of the show was the desperately needed home renovation of a family who was going through a crisis of some sort. The family is sent away on vacation for a week while their home is renovated. When they return home, they are presented with a new or rebuilt home to fit their needs.
The show was kind of corny, however it was appealing in a way that unlike other reality shows, it was not a complete brain drain for the audience.
Do I recommend it? Maybe.
