You’re probably wondering if this is going to be another heart warming write up. If that was your initial thought… well your right. I can’t seem to pull myself away from the feel good shows. Is that really a crime? Seriously, there are far worse things in the world than wanting to see a happy ending.
So the tale of this week brings us to Extreme Makeover Home Edition. I think it’s safe to say that this is probably one of the best moves ABC made when they picked up this program. It’s good clean family entertainment, we all know that can be hard to find these days. And along with that smart decision they also managed to get the perfect host, Ty Pennington. He was well suited for carpentry when I first saw him on Trading Spaces, but even better matched as not only a personality for the show but also someone that can empathize with his guest families and really bring their stories to life – the good and the bad. Just goes to show that a great host really makes the show a hit.
In all the years I’ve been watching this show, the team has always had the ability to make the viewer look past someone’s disability and get you to focus on all the abilities; and they usually are pretty grand. Koodos to this program week after week for highlighting the challenges of the not so every day person that has had to adjust to a not so accommodating world.
