Essay idea I don’t have time to write: my latest comfort TV discovery is HGTV flipper shows. I find them reassuring and soothing because you’ll see them take on, like, a former meth den with dog feces on the carpet and turn the place into a gleaming mid-century inspired space for what feels to me like a shockingly small amount of money.
My favorite is Desert Flippers, both because I love Palm Springs and because they do great work. I’ve also been enjoying Vintage Flippers, which is all in the LA area, at least partly because every single episode there is a moment when the lady makes some awful color choice and the guy is like “Ehhhhh I don’t knowwwww,” and he is always 100% correct.
Here is an essay on the subject by the lady behind McMansion Hell. https://www.curbed.com/2018/5/30/17390302/hgtv-fixer-upper-renovation-shows-house-hunters
@buzz Flip or Flop!
@jeffmc I’ve seen a bit of the Vegas one but just started watching.
@buzz I am a fan of the original, and the Atlanta one
