Calling this show a cheap rip-off may not be fair
21 September 2004 | by (Cambria Heights, NY) – See all my reviews

As a fan of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, I really did not want to like this show. After watching the third episode of this series, I realize that calling this show a cheap rip-off of EM:HE may not be fair.

On the positive side, IMO the home designers and idea people on RMF seem to have better ideas than the EM people. I find myself marveling more over the RMF homes a tiny bit more than the EM homes.

On the negative side, this show lacks the charm of EM:HE. I don't really care about the designers and builders on RMF the way I care about the people on EM:HE. Is it me but does it seem like they put hot triplets on the show because they are hot triplets? I think because EM:HE only concentrates on the house and because they show all the emotion that went into it, we begin to care about the designers as well as the families. At the end of each EM:HE, I find myself getting emotional during the reveal. That did not happen for me with RMF.

I'm not slamming RMF. The show definitely has its merits, and I'll likely watch again, but I don't think that they'll match EM:HE for charm and emotion.
