This show just reeks, although it starts with a great premise. My wife watches it, so by default I do as well at times. A recent marathon cemented my opinions.
The hosts are pathetic. Designers and Realtors are in a service business, and Hillary presents nothing but an obnoxious, condescending libertine, intent on spending someone else's money how she wishes. The fact is if she works like this in real life, which each week is a commitment to an extensive remodel on a tiny budget on usually ancient, code busting, monstrosities only to be derailed by an obvious structural issue, would put her out of business from lawsuits and possible fraud charges. She is as repulsive a personality as exists on TV.
David, the realtor, is equally dense about his clients, and each week provides the same "same house, wrong house, worse house, perfect house". He'd be fired after the second wrong house.
Next are the clients. It appears the show is filmed in a just a couple of neighborhoods in Toronto. Usually the couple is insistent on remaining in their urban, regentryfying, stultifyingly hip neighborhood to the point they squawk about even considering a move just several blocks away.
