Storyline

A family that has faced hardship has their dilapidated house completely rebuilt while they are away on vacation for a week. While early episodes renovated houses, the usual approach is to tear down the house on the first day and build a brand new, usually much larger, one, fully furnished. The houses are customized to the families, with rooms reflecting the interests of, especially, the children, and special technology for any unusual medical conditions. Host Ty Pennington usually has a "secret" project which is only revealed when the family sees it. The construction is accomplished with the help of a large army of blue-shirted volunteers and a wide array of sponsor-donated products and services. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Extreme Makeover - Home Edition
5 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've been addicted to Extreme Makeover since it first aired here in the UK on one of our satellite channels. I confess to having shed a few tears on more than one occasion, the most recent episode being where a son had managed to trace his father who was living rough and bring him home. There wasn't a dry eye in the house that night. Its truly heartwarming stuff in a world where we increasingly don't really care about people who may be less fortunate than ourselves. I suppose thats the not very "secret" secret about this show, it does something positive to help people who are at their lowest ebb. The team of builders, designers etc really seem to care about what they do and of course when they get overly emotional when the job is finished that sets me off too! Its great entertainment whilst doing something extraordinarily worthwhile. I have to say you guys in the US really know how to build houses.
