Mad skills with the saws AND upholstery work. Everything you could ask for in a DIY show. Funny hosts with good energy and chemistry, too! Needs further on screen explanation of some of the tools and techniques used. Not necessarily a voice-over but a silent and on screen pop up???? superimposed over the action, so that the natural affinity these guys have for their craft and each other isn't interfered with at all. A host would buzz-kill the whole vibe here.
ie: tonight they showed them fitting a piano hinge, but gave no explanation for why they flipped the piece over and closed it up before doing that. I couldn't see what happened or why they lined it up like they did or what was important to know when doing the measuring or placing the screws where they did. I think I know after thinking about it some (I am not a woodworker, just a sewer and general crafter, but fitting a zipper is probably similar).
I would love to see a cameo (after the fact so it's natural and not rehearsed) say a day or two later, by the people they de-junked. The junk brothers go and fess up that they were the de-junkers and get the reaction of the people upon whose junk they worked their magic on. They're at such a distance in the truck when they film the drop-offs and I'd love to get a chance to hear what the people say and feel about the reworked pieces.
I really liked this show and the hosts. They seem like younger, more clean cut and WAY cuter versions of my 8th grade shop teacher (Remember shop teachers? I will be 40 in October). They give you the idea YOU could do this too, if you only tried.
