I really like it. Jessie and Tina are a little dull but I like learning about the different periods of architecture. The vintage work they do sets it apart from all the other flipping shows IMO. What do you think?

If you like vintage flipping shows, the DIY channel beats the socks off any of the HGTV couples. There's this super intense guy from Sacramento CA that has a show that does vintage flips. He rules.

Oh I'd love to see that. Do you know the name of the show or the guy?

Actors? Are you saying it's not real?

There are so many house flipping shows on now it's flipping ridiculous. Every flipping town has it's own flipping flippers.

I haven't seen this one yet. There are only a couple I still like as most of them are repetitious and kind of boring.

None of them are 'real.' But this one is particularly bad bc you can tell the scripted parts by the way the couple talks.

I guess when I say "real" I wonder if Jessie really is a contractor/realtor or is he just an actor pretending to be one? (Tina doesn't have an official occupation in the industry as far as I'm aware.) I also wonder do he and Tina really know all of this stuff about architecture and design, or does HGTV have knowledgeable people feeding them the info. If these parts are all real, then it wouldn't be that bad.
You may have just meant not real in the sense that they're being told what to say and how to react. That wouldn't really surprise me or disappoint me that much if the acting were better. I watched another episode today and it did seem like bad acting.

Just found it - Restored with Brett Waterman. A contractor guy runs around in a cowboy hat and shorts and restores all these old homes. He's a trip.

Nashville Flip is also a guy who flips/restores older homes, but it's more conventional than Restored.

I like it too.

I do like the work they do. Part renovation, part restoration with more emphasis on restoration.

As someone said, it does seem scripted at times but it's still a fairly young show. They may find a more natural flow in time.

I love the beginning where the dad gives the older a son a kiss on the cheek and the son immediately kisses mom. So natural that you know those kids are loved.

I've seen only one episode of Vintage Flip, and seen it twice. It might be on opposite something else I'm recording, so I only get it once in a while.

I like Home Town on HGTV, but it seems to have wandered off after just a few episodes.

I heartily dislike several of the other Flip couples.

I don't get DIY network.
