We will forgive this series for jumping on the soon-to-be-tiresome trend of Game of Thrones-derived show titles, mainly because it offers a fresh twist to the home renovation competition genre. Four teams of skilled amateur renovators get to save a house from the brink of collapse and attempt to restore it to glory for a chance at winning the home itself. Guest celebrity judges from the home reno TV space offer up their brickbats and bouquets, and the viewing audience also gets to cast its vote.
