I grew up watching this and I STILL watch it. One of the best things about This Old House is that it has changed very little since it first aired in 1979 (other than the occasional new host). When Bob Vila left, I was pretty disappointed because he WAS This Old House, but after I warmed up to Steve, I could see that it didn't really matter, that Steve was just as good as Bob and they were still doing all kinds of cool renovation jobs on historic old houses, and that's the most important thing.

I was surprised to see in this season's premiere that Steve has now left and there is another new host (I missed the last few episodes of last season). He seems a little stiff and unsure of himself now, but I'm sure he'll relax and turn out just fine as Steve did.

It's great to see some of the older shows from the early 80s and compare the styles of then with the styles of today. It would be really interesting to see the guys go and redo a house that they did back around 1981 and bring it into the current style!

People can make sarcastic jokes and laugh all they like, but this show ROCKS!
