 Herself (43 episodes, 2003-2006)


A team of skilled, and sometimes unskilled, labourers, designers and contractors go up against the clock to give a house a themed remodelling. Other than picking the theme, the owners have no say in the design process. Hilarity ensues when builders clash, problems arise and the five day time limit looms. Awesome designs create out of the ordinary houses that inspire and leave nothing to the imagination. Written by jackdc14

Rock on Steve!
24 August 2003 | by (cardiff, wales) – See all my reviews

I'm not a big Discovery Channel watcher, but since catching this show, I've been truly addicted. It makes a mix of Monster Garage and random design shows from channels like HGTV. I'm not a car person so I enjoy Monster House much more than the garage version. Don't watch it for the design ideas, which are good in themselves, watch it for the catfights between the carpenters. What makes the show great is the human dynamic between Steve and his crew. Watch the tile layer being a total w***er, sitting around drinking cokes and smoking or watch the cabinet maker going home cause things don't go his way. Or, for you girls out there, watch the token female pitch a fit at not be allowed to touch a power tool. In the end, the show is not so much about what they are making, as it is about the people are are wielding the welders. And while it bears the title of a 'design show' it's not really your typical 'suprise by design'. It's totally addictive and funny, and in my opinion, the best 'design' show out there.
