This is a surprisingly good "creative reality" show. You know the drill - a bunch of folks are tasked with creating something in a very short time. And then stuff happens.
In this case, they create furniture. Tables, chairs, desks, functional art pieces. Some of the creations are downright impressive, and I want to create them myself. The hardware store is calling -- that's what I'd call an inspirational show!
Oh yeah, Ellen is there too. She shows up from time to time, but isn't really an integral part of the show. That's fine, the judges and the contestants make it work.
Not sure if this show is sticking around or not, but I hope it does. There are lots of areas of design, but this one is a competition of those creating actual furniture. It’s interesting to watch how their pieces develop. My only issue is most tend to lean towards modern. I would love to see more detailing come back, rather than always “clean, sleek lines”.
