Do you want to know a secret? I am a sucker for makeover programs on TV! And there are a lot of them. Usually they’re broadcasted in the daytime, which is a time of day I never watch TV, and I also don’t own a TV so everything I watch is on streaming providers, and then I usually watch series such as Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Criminal Minds, Blindspot, Grey’s Anatomy… you know, shows and series with actors, not reality anything.
That’s when I’m in the city. When I go home, I spend a lot of time with my mom in the living room and we watch daytime TV. Even if she’s not around, I tend to spend time in the living room with the TV on if I’m working on my laptop or just relaxing. We watch a lot of shows, often British, some Norwegian, where people are selling or looking for new houses, or renovating theirs, or where people have tried and failed to renovate and then seek professional help… As well as garden/garden making show. Right now we’re watching a show where a bunch of professionals fix up a house that a family inherited that was well suited for the grandmother who lived there before but not for this family of four, and now the host has sent the family away and they’ve started changing the house, and the host keeps sending the family small video clips of them tearing down walls and such!
I think what I enjoy so much about shows like this is seeing all the transformation that’s possible to do, to know that even something so permanent as a wall in a house isn’t necessarily permanent. And I would just love the opportunity to wear carpenter’s pants and attack a wall with a sledgehammer sometime!
Anyone else secretly or not-so-secretly love makeover shows?
