Did anyone here watch Mobile Home Disaster w/ Bill Engvall on CMT?
I like the idea of a mobile home makeover show. I don't think I've ever seen a mobile home on House Hunters...or any show on HGTV for that matter.
When I saw the home that Mobile Home Disaster was going to repair, I was wondering how they were going to fix a home that needed more costly repairs than it was probably worth in value.
I was disappointed to see them replace the entire unit, because most viewers in the same situation can't follow suit. On the other hand, I was delighted to see that family receive a new, nicer, larger home.
My main complaint regarding this show was that it seemed rather insulting to the recipient family. If the family makes self-depreciating remarks about their "*******" lifestyle, thats one thing. But since we know that Bill Engvall isn't involved in "linear living", it really didn't work when he made seemingly insulting comments regarding their lifestyle. I guess if he made the comments in the first person, they might be funny or at least appreciated...but not when referring to others.
BTW, three of my best friends currently live in mobile homes, and I lived in two mobile homes during my college days. I was quite comfortable in it. The main issues were during storms/tornado warnings and when my roommate's cat breathed her last breaths in the home's insulation under the mobile home...in a southern summer. Other than that, it was fine.
What were your thoughts regarding this series?
