I've been watching it. I like it better since he is a contractor and seems to do more work. I tried Vegas, but I couldn't take her voice so I had to stop.

I'm pretty much over Christina and Tarek so I won't watch them any more.

I like it - the couple seems well grounded and less "cutesy". I tried to watch the Vegas Flip or Flop but couldn't stand their taste - lots of teal.

I finally just watched this On Demand over the last few days. WAY better than Vegas!! Anita's design style seems to run between Christina and Joanna Gaines. More like a flipper version of Joanna. Which I am OK with. I enjoyed the season. (Where watching Vegas is like a train wreck- I only watch because I can't imagine what awful design Aubrey will do next.)

Yes and they're a very likable couple.

I also just started watching Flip Flop FT. Worth. Not sure yet about that one. She is a little annoying.

I live in Atlanta, and I always find it funny that they'll go to a neighborhood like, say, Kennesaw, which is a far out suburb, and then they show a montage of images from East Atlanta Village, a neighborhood right in the city. They've used this same montage on several episodes.

Another example: They flipped a house in Tucker, a close-in suburb with a quaint Main Street and several parks/nature areas, and the images they used in the montage were a ratty wooden fence, the parking lot of a Sam's Club, and an old, empty church.

Generally I like the show, and I think the couple is much more likable than Tarek/Cristina or the Vegas couple. But I wish they'd use images of the actual areas where they're working, or images that play up the nicer aspects of an area.

This show needs some better production.

I know I mentioned this on another Flip or Flop thread, but I honestly think they had a vendetta against Tucker on that episode. Between what you mentioned and the bitching about the stop work order, the holdup on permitting, Tucker being a 'new' city (read: dysfunctional govt), well...

Flip or Flop Atlanta

It looked that way. Tucker isn't all sunshine and roses, and it certainly has some derelict buildings, but they really would have been hard pressed to make Tucker look worse than they did. They may have been pissed about the stop work order and edited in the shabbiness as a form of revenge.

Yeah, I watched the Fort Worth episodes this morning. (We are on overtime and I work from home a couple of days a week. I finally cleared everything off my DVR and have had time to catch up on all of these.) I'm on the fence, too. Both about their personalities (he seems OK so far) and the design. Most of the design is very neutral and kind of blah, and then there is some that is a bit out there. Like her obsession with blue houses? And she went on and on about that one bathroom and how great it was, and how great that tile was, and I thought the tile was awful!!
I will keep watching for now, but I'm definitely not hooked. Nor am I in a train-wreck trance like Vegas provides.

I just hate how she has to sing her words when she talks...

"Wait to you see the tile I bought, it is amaaaaazing!"
