It's a home design show where you trade a room in your house/apartment with a friend and you redesign them with help from professionals.

It's very addicting...

Yeah, end up having to watch it all the time, my wife's addicted. It's really not a bad show, but those designers need to be stoutly beaten once in awhile.

I find it disturbingly intriguing, and watch it if I happen to see it on. It's usually on around the same time as A Dating/Wedding/Baby Story, which can also be disturbingly intriguing. But I'll pretty much watch anything on TLC. :D

Trading Spaces is a cool show. Since I do shiftwork and I'm usually home during the week I occasionally catch Makeover Story at lunchtime...it's pretty awesome how they can make some REALLY normal people look pretty darn good.

Yes! There's one male designer that I can't think of his name at the moment.....that usually comes up with some weird stuff.

I watch it too! I pretty much wall all the design shows, though. The best is when it's time to reveal the finished room, sometimes the looks on their faces is like, 'KILL ME!'

My wife is seriously addicted to the show. I like to watch to catch glimpses of Genevieve's tight t-shirts - HEHE. Amy Wynn is hot too. I hate it when a show changes a host like mid stream. I liked the old host but am getting used to the new one.

Did you guys see the episode where when the lady was shown her new room she cried and had to leave the room. The new host tried making small talk with her husband and in the background you could still hear her crying. Oh so sad.

Did you guys ever see Genevieve's moss wall? OMG. I would like her to walk around my house barefooted(ever notice how she never has shoes on) but not decorated it.

My g/f and I usually end up watching the shower when she's able to be home.
Usually end up watching Trading Spaces and A Wedding Story.

Good shows :)

Doug Wilson made a woman in Seattle cry with his redo of her living room. And they were not tears of joy. :D I like Vern Yip's and Laurie (I forget her last name)'s rooms. Doug is a little too industrial/modern for me and Genevieve is a little too hippy/flowerchild or as she says, "organic."

I liked Alex better than Paige. :(

The wife loves Trading Spaces. I just hope she doesn't get any ideas. We've already made enough cosmetic to major changes to the house.

Iron Chef is a hoot, especially the bad voice overs. The guy who always "interrupts" to add a meaningless bit of advice about how the chef has now done something routine ("The Iron Chef has now put one more shrimp on the barbie! He's also turned the stove up one degree!") is entertaining.

I haven't seen the William Shatner Americanized version, but I've heard I haven't missed anything...

My wife loves to watch that show. I think I would freak out too much to let my neighbor jack up my house.
