the original home improvement show
24 October 2007 | by (davis, california) – See all my reviews

my favorite of all the home improvement shows, and the only one that you know will show you the latest and greatest techniques/products in the home improvement industry. bob Vila made the show popular, Steve Thomas made it for the everyman, and Kevin o'Connor has yet to make his legacy. regulars like norm Abram, tom Silva, Richard Trethewey, and roger cook are the best in their individual fields, many of them have had their trades in their family for many years. it wasn't until later in the series that they ventured away from Massachusetts, but eventually they went out of the country to London, as well as having a couple shows in CA, one in HI, TX, LA, FL, and many other locations. with these guys you know you can count on a craftsmanship that just isn't approached in more recent shows which breeze over complex projects. a truly classic and indispensable show. now if they released archived episodes on DVD or made them available for download then they're really be on to something...
