Oh, and, yeh, Dane (Interior design guy).
Cute (in a bland way) , but boring. (Btw one reason I feel the USA version is a hit, is the sweet nature of the Five. Ted's actually a bit more of a wild card**, IMO; but the others... they really love their jobs cos it helps people, I get the feeling. They're not just actors looking for a place to do some schtick.)
I hope the UK guys find their niche; right now it doesn't seem too cohesive, just bits where they mimic the USA show, and bits where they do random schtick. I really do feel, though, that one thing that's contagious about the USA version, is you can see how they really do feel about each MB. I just kinda felt like this bunch was acting.
Maybe I liked Peyton despite his potato-shaped-head, because he kinda reminds me of Kevyn Aucoin for some reason. sigh
**ETA: by "Ted = wild card" I mean that of all the Fab Five he seems toughest. Not that the others haven't been through some 'stuff' too but Ted's the one I'd bet on to throw the meanest punch - and to be the least sentimental. OF COURSE goes w/out saying this is purely subjective on my part.
I just don't notice him tearing up when a guy learns to MB - like some of the others do. We'd all like a group of fairy godfathers (pun ? not sure) to sweep into our lives and "Make It Better". Ted would be the slightly acerbic one (Carson's quips don't fool me - he'd be a shoulder to cry on any day) who might be hiding behind the drapes to remedy any evil curse laid down by the bad fairy...... You know. He's been there, done that, sees it coming.
Carson's just one huge sweetie-pie and gets verklempt easily... And it's genuine. So he may be my favorite ;o) Kyan's vulnerable too... Ya gotta love 'em all.
I don't know that they can Xerox this show. It's the Five in it, who count.
