The idea is an old one (see: The Block -which is great BTW) and hardly lives up to the original. I felt like I was watching a politically correct beeyotchfest (usual suspects in that area).. meh. moving right along. Full Review »

The judges except for Eddie were "sophisticate" who wanted their personal style issues and typical reality show crap was great. They did not reflect a style that is functional or something working class people would agree with. Keeping Elaine on for the reality b"""ch factor was stupid. Anyone who wants a dream builder that only considers their own opinion is out of their mind. Jay won. Lowe's and NBC can forget my family watching this if it renews Full Review »

Nate is extremely disappointing as a judge. His only internet appears to be experiencing something shocking & different. He never took into consideration, any home owners opinion to how they liked any of the renovations done. Lukas has only a "museum" style of design skills. His designs are only good to look at, but have no comfort or functionality. Jay's design took into consideration, modernizing the existing look, yet appealing to the homeowners tastes. That to me, is the skill of a true American Dream Builder. Thus show missed the mark in such an incredible way. I won't be watching it if it is renewed for another season. Full Review »
