I enjoy Brian Bauemler and Jim Caruk. Both depict a much more realistic picture of our industry. Brian's humour makes his shows worth watching.

I like Brian. I feel like he actually know what he's doing. And his sarcasm with the homeowners males for a good show.

You have "Steven & Chris" - you are not permitted heroes.

Wait a moment - you also have Red Green - well hey, OK - you ARE permitted heroes - but they gotta use duck tape.

Carry on...

Look for threads on worm drive vs. side winder circular saw, titanium vs steel hammers, or mesh tape vs paper tape if you really want to start a something

The ONLY show ever worth watching on those channels is "Million Dollar Contractor"- Stephen Fanuka.

Re: Mike Holmes Rules


Ohh my god! You have a spot of mild the size of a quarter on your sheathing. We had better burn down your house and your neighbours house. Blame the guy who did your bathroom on a $8k budget and then build you new homes with 12' ceilings in the basement and gourmet kitchen and a state of the art theatre in The basement. That's Mike Holmes for you. On other DIY shows they may go as far as dry ice blasting or something but at least it's in the realm on possibility

Long live Norm Abrams!
