I've been watching this show on HGTV, partly in fascination but mostly in horror. This is the result of all those renovation shows that imply that it's so easy to reno a house and flip it for profit. Because these newbie flippers are just so cocky and ready for anything on Day 1 and just seems so beaten down on Day whatever, weeks beyond their initial deadline.

Seriously, I think of the 6 episodes I've watched, I think more than half have ended with them not being able to sell the house, and I think I've seen one to two marriages in need of couples counseling.

I just binged watched it and the long hiatus was worth it. It's better in so many ways than the first season. I was one of those people who was not really enamored with the show, and joked that I only stay for the clusterfucks (sorrynotsorry) but I'm glad I gave it another chance.

I think that the Wachowski excel at world-building -- I mean, look at The Matrix and Jupiter Ascending -- so it's fascinating what they cooked up for us in the 2nd season. Read more... )
