Ok, I’m seeing double right now.

My favorite shows on the idiot box are mostly composed of cooking shows (Good Eats, Ace of Cakes, Iron Chef America, and an outside contender that skirts the line between food and travel show… No Reservations), Discovery Channel fun/danger shows (MythBusters, Dirty Jobs, Deadliest Catch), BBC America imports (Top Gear, The Graham Norton Show… and hoping like hell that QI makes its way across eventually), and a number of one-offs that aren’t defined by a genre.

I just picked up a new one, basically a “contractors fucked up my home, I’d like you to make it right” type show.  The host comes in and soberly, with minimal sensationalism, tears out as much of the original poor construction as necessary — pointing out where the original contractor screwed the pooch with relation to safety and code — and redoes it properly, explaining what and why he’s doing.  The show is Holmes on Homes, and the host, Mike Holmes is a sturdily built dude, with a no nonsense attitude, and a Boy Scout complex a mile wide.  He looks, sounds and behaves almost exactly like my brother, Animal, if he would have gone into construction.  It amuses me to no end.



  1. If you like Bruce Campbell, your really should check him out in "Burn Notice" on USA.  Holy shit is that an awesome show.  They are fixing to wrap up the second season (they are like 12 episode seasons).  I HIGHLY recommend that show to EVERYONE!  That has got to be the best show EVER.  It is funny, action filled, and just damn good.

  2. You found me out. I took the TV job thinking if I have enough makeup on no one would notice. I hope they didn’t show by motorcycle in the background. And NO, to answer all your next questions; I will not get you on the show so you can get a free home make-over. Watch my show and read my book.
