The New Life

I have to admit something. I frequently get hooked into watching “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” It airs on ABC on Sunday nights.

Reasons to watch the show: seeing a complete transformation of a home, watching the strange group of designers/builders, and enjoying the family’s reaction toward its new living environment. (Usually, the family has gone through a sad situation (death or illness.))

However, I do have one complaint regarding the television series. Upon receiving their new home, the family usually talks about having a “new life” or “being happy again.” You have to watch an episode to understand what I am talking about. Materialism reigns on the show. But I guess this proves that “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” is a true reality show.
