Advertisements Given the incredible amount of work they're doing on the place I'd hardly call it a normal job. That and it's a pretty big house. Not like some of the post-and-beam monstrosities of recent years, but still FAR from a normal kind of home. It seemed like the older shows managed to 'get more in' rather than stretching it out across multiple episodes. Now, jobs do require a lot of time and it's better not to fake it into the '3 day' schedules some shows seem to hype. But given there's only about 20 minutes of actual show in the average episode these days it's pretty annoying to come away feeling like very little was covered. At least with ATOH you're getting some pretty thorough coverage of multiple projects in the same timeframe. That and it really did seem hard to get a decent season pass configured for the show. Between randomly bad PBS guide data (wrong shows entirely) or repeats being record even with 'First Run', I stopped trying to record it. But lately it seems to be handling first run recordings properly. Even in the face of competition from DIY and HGTV, TOH still comes across as a show worth watching.
