Yep. Depending on the project and the celebrity I sometimes just ffwd to the end.

I've never seen Darren in anything but I knew he'd been in Glee. He is a real cutie. I too wondered where the stuff from the garage went. Thought they could put a small shed in the back but hot tub is a better idea. I don't understand the pavers with grass between them. Doesn't that make it easier to trip on the pavers?

He also played Gianni Versace's killer in that season of American Crime Story.  I agree he is very cute.

Obviously it's more fun when they do an actual house, rather than a garage.

They did so much with the garage, inside and all around outside as if they did not wish to waste a single square centimeter, that it felt like quite an extensive reno; in the end it was like a very well appointed small house.

I see I am not the only one who wondered what happened to all of the stuff that was stored in the garage initially, like the bikes, toys and all those storage bins. Granted, it's probable that the family ultimately decided to chuck a good portion of it, but where were the drums – which magicaly reappeared in the end – kept in the remodeled garage? Perhaps in those closets we had a quick glimpse of but could not really gauge their capacity (only 4 narrow doors).

That's the role he got an Emmy, a Golden Globe and a few other awards for.

I find this show incredibly stupid and annoying.

But Josh Groban is the celeb on July 26. So I'm in!

Yes, and most of the demo since I hate to see perfectly useable things and glass smashed to smithereens.

Doesn't that happen on many of those reality shows, especially the renovation/construction ones? It's as if they want to make sure each viewer is constantly reminded of where things stand, what is the premise of the show, etc.. They may also feel the need to constantly brief the casual viewers (like me for this show) or the new ones, or perhaps they are afraid that some of the viewers dozed off and missed a few bits.

That being said they have about 3/4 of an hour of TV to fill and 20 minutes of people hammering nails would not make for very compelling viewing, so talking heads (even repetitive ones) could seem to be a good replacement option.

It's made even worse by the fact that their "designs" are all so alike. Out of 100 HGTV programmes you're lucky to see 1 with a unique design.

They have to use mostly products made by their sponsors, which limits the diversity of looks and the number of possible concepts.

Not to mention the time factor: they have to come up with designs real fast and execute them on a tight schedule, so no wonder they often choose to resort to proven templates they are familiar with.

I've had a quick look at their sponsor's options and a real designer could make 100 places that look different. Easily.

I think this becomes an issue for most designers that are on tv, not that I would call either of them designers, they want to create a sort of streamlined look to solidify a brand and it usually ends up just being boring and repetitive.

Boring and repetitive should be the brothers middle names.

Another garage and backyard make-over and also changing the exterior color. I think they could have scheduled differently so as not to have had two such similar episodes in a row.  At least this renovation also included a storage shed for all that garage stuff that can no longer be stored.  Josh Groban seemed very genuine.

Josh is so cute. I'd be fine with him being the third Property Brother. I wish we could have heard him sing some more. Outdoor renovations was probably the best bet for filming during a pandemic. I'll take it because It's better than nothing. It's a nice change from white kitchens.

To be fair the showed the new storage unit because they took out an older one and there wasn’t anything other than his music stuff being stored in the garage. 

My main worry for the garage studio, is did they put in a lot of security, the amount of equipment put in could easily be targeted. 

Like no one can move an outdoor kitchen or in ground hot tub but the computer, keyboard and monitors are easy lifts in a garage space.

Watched this show for the first time with Gwenyth. I would've cried if it were my main floor powder room they removed.

No kidding - me too.  

Regarding the Josh Groban show, I kept hoping they would put in one of those in-wall air conditioners.  Having spent a few days in June helping clean out my in-laws LA garage, I can personally attest that it's hot in there - and we had the door open. 

Also, I wasn't amused by the way they made fun of the screen door.  Maybe it helped with air flow through the house so they could cut down on air conditioning.
