Do you know the schedule for reruns of your episode? So, what did you think? Was it what you expected? I'm sure it was a smashing. Can't wait to catch it as a rerun (or is it online?).
hahaha, it's no big deal. I don't know the schedule for reruns yet, but whenever I find out it's going to air again, I'll post it.
They told us it would be available online eventually, but I've noticed HGTV hasn't updated their online shows in a long time, so it could be awhile. They're supposed to be sending me a DVD, so I guess if you're ever in Arkansas, stop in and I'll let you watch it!
I'm pleased with the show overall. None of the bison comments made it on, so that's a relief. But a lot of the funnier stuff we said didn't make the final cut either, which was surprising. Maybe they thought I was too crude. Like, I remember saying in one of the interviews that I wanted a house where I could pee in my backyard without bothering the neighbors. Instead of that, on the show they just used a comment where I said I wanted elbow room. And another time, when we were looking at a plantation style house and my wife was complaining about it being in the middle of nowhere, I remember I turned to her and said, "Frankly dear, I don't give a damn." Both times I had everyone rolling with laughter so I thought for sure those would be on the show. I guess the editors aren't Rhett Butler fans.
OH, and even with all the nitpicking we did to every house that didn't make it on, for some crazy reason they made sure to include us complaining about the wall colors. I don't get it! It's like they want to drive viewers nuts.
Using some of the tools you gave me, I've noticed that there's been some negative reaction sent my way on the episode because I'm a writer and my wife is has a "real job." I was sort of expecting that, so I can't really complain. But it is annoying that those people don't sit there and think for a moment that if it's my wife's job moving us, I'm not going to have a "real job" yet in our new location. Oh well. Thick skin.
The one that had me rolling was someone said that I was wearing lipstick. I just keep thinking they must have needed to adjust the temperature on their TV or something.
At least everyone who knows us really, really liked the episode. And at least none of the bad comments were directed toward my wife. That I might not have been able to put up with.
