Flashback Friday: Good Bones (2016-Present)

Watching HGTV, the impression one gets is that home building and renovation industry is a gendered one. The man handle the construction and the women are in charge of the decor.

Good Bones premiered on the channel in 2016 and has been a regular part of the schedule ever since. The redheaded mother-daughter duo Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak Hawk, co-owners of Two Chicks and a Hammer, renovate and restore houses in their home town of Indianapolis. As is expected, there are issues along the way. But the hope is that once the home is done, it will be sold for a nice profit.

What I like about this show is the unique mother/daughter relationship. Mina is the levelheaded one while Karen is more creative. I also love that it disputes the myth that women are only able to and/or not interested in the construction aspect of home building and renovation.

Do I recommend it? Yes.

  1. I love this show! My crush on Mina knows no bounds (LOL dont tell my other crush Allison Victoria from Windy City Rehab) I’ll tell you what, with all the crap going on over the past year, HGTV has been a great way to just relax and lose the stress. I’ll tell you what, I am not a gender equal guy. I believe everyone is equal, but I don’t need any of the PC crap that we get every day because it is so forced. That equality crap just seems natural on all of the HGTV shows! I am so impressed with all of these women who flip houses. They are all rock stars in my book!
