  1. Gave Dream Home a go last night and not surprised it’s numbers dropped significantly from the curiosity of the night before. It was dreadful. Same old reality rubbish of too much talking from competing couples we don’t care about and not enough of showing us how the renovations are done which would be far more interesting and compelling. At least you’d go away having learnt something.
    With the exception of Dr Chris’s appearance on screen at the end of the show for a very quick (some producer who actually had been on set during filming had obviously told him what to say and what facial expressions to pull for his cutaways for the half hour he would have actually been there on set) boring chat to the contestants His participation in the show is all voice over which would have been done in post production for about half an hour of his time per episode. Congratulations to him though for scoring such a high paying gig for absolutely no creative input and such little time required.

    1. Absolutely 100% what you’ve already said. How were these contestants selected? Hardly anyone in need. Perhaps families needing renovations for suddenly disabled, flood/fire damaged uninsured properties – you know, like the Sunday night show a few decades ago.

      1. Domestic Blitz? It’s a competition show tho, not a feelgood reward show. I don’t think the issue is as much about how people were selected as the overall execution, and lack of difference from HR.
