The basic premise is pretty good. People all over struggle with fixing up their current home or moving. That's where it ends. While some of the before and after are good work, the journey is unnecessarily painful. I have been watching home shows for over 30 years from when they were simple "how-to" on PBS to the current menu. I am a fan of This Old House and HomeTime where the camera moves smoother and actually gives me a chance to see what is going on and they explained what was happening. Love it or List it is a culmination of all the fears people have to move or remodel. Testy people to deal with, sarcasm, and Hillary who demonstrates the stereotypical behavior that people expect from a contractor. Over promise and under-deliver then surprising the homeowner with tough financial and functional choices. I have built many things and fired many contractors who perform just like Hillary and I never get held hostage. This is exactly what scares people away from remodeling.

While I have grown a tough exterior for dealing with these things, many people have not and fear getting ripped off. The encouraging truth is that if you do your homework there are actually honorable contractors who will take your money and deliver a quality product as promised. Nothing is ever completely perfect, but the surprises should not be as drastic as the failures on this show. Good contractors just do not do what Hillary does and get half-way through a project before doing their homework and examining the entire house first and then presenting choices to the homeowners. The other encouraging news is that there are better, "can-do" shows. While I miss Norm and, yes, Bob Vila who encouraged you into making things happen and taught you how to do it, the Property Brothers and Fixer Upper, plus so many more take their place pretty well. I only wish they would have better or smoother camera work. That aside, while I like some shows better than others, only one is truly annoying to the point of changing the channel and living up to every stereotypical contractor fear...it is "Love it or List it". With so many other great, positive, shows, I would say do not Love it or List it, just lose it.
