    I noticed in this weeks episode and last week's that Doug is being a lot nicer to the people involved in the show. mmmmmm.... Doug is taking a happy pill??

    Last week's episode. The 3 brothers who had the Newport beach house, really were way out of line when they went back to their old house and made comments like the kitchen was over the top. It was a nice kitchen. The lady spent less then they did (they spent $60,000 dollars to redo the kitchen) They brothers left the old house looking a mess, the decorations were cheap and tacky and anything the new owner did was a vast improvement.

    To the current owner, I wish the producers were more specific how she became a millionaire I would love to know. Sounds as if she refurbishes houses. As far a her boyfriend. DUMP HIM. YOU ARE WASTING THE BEST YEARS OF YOUR LIFE ON THE BUM. JUST BECAUSE YOU LOVE HIM DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO MARRY HIM.

    This weeks episode 5/7/05 was in Philadelphia. Angela the young lawyer, liked what she did to the place. She made it hers. Her friends need to learn to use painter's tape to paint a stripe.

    The couple who moved out of Angela's rowhouse to the twin set did a nice job renovating. Hopefully, they will have an occupany clause in their next contract.

    To the 3 slobs that had lived in the twin set house. CALLING YOU PIGS IS INSULTING TO THE ENTIRE PORCINE SPECIES. Leaving your dishes and food out on the counter next to mouse droppings is funny?? You are all wacked and need serious psychiatric help. Not cleaning a bathroom in over a year. I am surprised that the tub did not distintergrate, and than to come back and complain that the new owners should have left the years worth of garbage that you lived in??? And one of you teaches!!! You are all sick, sick, sick, sick.

That and at his age to still be using cheap shelves etc... Lets not even go into the the junky bathroom full of product and his idea of entertainment is leaving porn mags on the breakfast counter.

    I only watched part of this, but Addys was funny. I loved how his apartment looked when the new guy was done with it but Addys' reaction was priceless. I guess painted walls and picture frames were a bit much for him to handle.

    I have to say that I was both amused and discusted by this weeks episode. The three guys who lived in absolute squalor, and seemed to be proud of it, just disgusted me. The worst of the trio said he was a teacher! I hope that when the lawyer girl see what the other family had to deal with that she feels bad about not allowing them to stay a little later.

    Somehow I don't think Angela would have cared, she shows all the signs of being a true bottom dwelling creature. Oh, pardon me, I meant lawyer.

    I caught this show by accident this weekend while lounging on the couch - and the episode that I saw the girl found al of the dead squirrels in her ceilings. What's worse is that they had been there so long it created a maggot problem. I hhad never been so grossed out by any home improvement show!!

That and the disclosure laws that were ignored in this episode by the Hobbit couple. That house was a fire trap. These people were filthy, what was it with all the mouse droppings???
    I too just saw this episode yesterday...my sis turned me on to this show. I totally agree about the inspection. When I bought my home, it was the first one (and thus far only one) I'd ever purchased. I was 26 at the time, and pretty green in real estate transactions. I did research and peppered my real estate agent with questions. I did have the sense to have an agent who wasn't the one selling the house. But you are right--the mortgage company (actually all of them--I talked to several to get the best rate) insisted on a home inspection, and any repairs that were mandatory by the inspector had to be completed before closing. I had an electrician out here at 8 p.m. the weekend before Christmas switching out two sockets that didn't have ground protection fault things in them. So I really don't get the lack of inspection. You'd think that Rebekka would have had some recourse against the realtor for bad professional advice AND the hobbit people for not disclosing the rat problem. And, at least here in the south, you need a termite certificate no older than 30 days before the inspection, to close. So that was a total shock too.

    I like this show though. Could have done without that Hobbit woman's grating laugh, however.

    Did anybody else think "Hildi" when they did the reveal on Maya's new bedroom? I didn't care for the style...too over-the-top for me. But I've gotta give her props taking her chosen theme and carrying it through to the finish!
