1 I agree with the majority, but wanted to add that the when This Old House was new (in its infancy), no one gave a f*** about old homes (those built before 1950 or so) at the time. Teardowns and abandoned, antique structures were commonplace nationwide. All of sudden, we now regret doing that, and we care about historic preservation. Yes, Bob Villa was an a**hole for being rude and interrupting workers. -- Submitted By: (ProfessorBone) on November 3, 2013, 8:44 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I watched this so I could see the contractors and trade people get annoyed with Bob Villa's constant interruptions as they were trying to get their work done. -- Submitted By: (Bryan527) on July 28, 2012, 11:41 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I can only echo what the other posters have said, this was a very good idea in the beginning but now its a show for people with million dollar budgets. -- Submitted By: () on June 13, 2011, 2:52 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Show boned for me when a home owner insisted on installing a computer controlled shower. The host (I think it was Vila) thought it was a great idea. Gimme a break ... it's a bathroom shower. Never watched with any regularity after that. The show got ridiculous with its million dollar renovations. -- Submitted By: (JustLooking) on October 22, 2010, 4:16 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 True and True. Though you both have very valid points, I didn't exactly hate the change of the show from instruction to more of a wish-list dream-home travel whatever show. There were so many other pure how-to programs going on (some of them local or regional), I'm glad they stepped outside their original mission. I didn't need to see Norm do any more biscuit jointing after the first two times. Bob Vila's departure was timely - he was becoming too arrogant and wanting to shoulder in on the demonstrations which just made them longer not better. The second guy was fine but even the third host is good enough. It's the material that matters anyway, not the host. If they had to move up-market to find novel material, then I'm glad they made that call. This Old House Classics used to be shown somewhere IIRC. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 20, 2010, 8:40 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 To piggyback on what Pelirojo said, this is no longer a show for the everyday home repair guy. They are incorporating too many high priced specialty tools into the mix, so after you finish watching the show you'll still be better off trying to find an honest contractor. Hard to do in these troubled times. The show is no longer worth watching for the do it yourselfer. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 10, 2010, 2:52 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Believe it or not, I can recall when it started out as a how-to show re renovating old houses with everyday tools and materials found in lumber yards,etc. for folks who found themselves wanting to renovate their old houses they'd barely been able to afford as efficiently as possible without having to blow endless bucks on specialty tools and materials! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on December 20, 2009, 4:55 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
