Upper Class Work Out of Reach for Average People
12 December 2020 | by sarahferguson-46410See all my reviews

I like quality and I know the work they show is good quality....but I will never be able to afford any of it. This is an interesting show with very well spoken guys doing the work, but for most of us it is just entertainment. Most handymen or contractors that are available are not so well spoken or respectful or even offer such high quality work. This Old House is generally showing work on houses owned by the very wealthy and the privileged few, in neighborhoods that are the same. if you really follow it, PBS programing is organized by the wealthy to a great extent for the wealthy or intellectual elite. I admit to watching it but I do not think it changes my life substantially but may be even giving me a false sense of what is possible in my life or give me ideas that will never find any place for expression in my experience in the world or among the people I am acquainted with, some even local professionals.
