I believe Kevin would be happy with this...
16 March 2011 | by aarone2884See all my reviews

I am always wary of TV show Franchise's, Just look at Top gear UK turned into Top Gear Down under, or Kath and Kim Turned in to Kath and Kim USA.

When they decided on a Grand Designs Australia i was a bit worried... Do we build enough interesting homes to fill enough episodes? Who should host?

Essentially these are the only 2 questions one needs to ask.

The first question is fairly easy. Yes. Building seems like a national past time here, New house's, improving and renovating is a cornerstone of our culture i believe, We love our homes, and Surprising there has not been a similar show sooner. So finding the right homes for the show has not been a problem.

Secondly, The Host was chosen Wisely, Peter Maddison lets the pictures and owners tell the story with little interference only guiding it along and putting in his 2 cents only when it matters.

Overall a great show which i think Kevin Mc'cloud would be happy to have his Grand designs UK show associated with it. 10/10
