If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/9/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice #1

My first pick tonight is the season finale of Home Free. This show on FOX has been a lot of fun. It combines a design-competition show with a feel-good, heartwarming one. Nine couples started the show, thinking they were competing to be the last couple standing to earn their dream home. Each week, all the couples worked together – on teams and down to individual couples last week for the top three – on renovating an old or worn-down or just plain out-of-date home, and Mike Holmes decided which couple to send home. What the contestants didn’t learn until after the other teams had left the site was that the lucky family to get the home they’d just finished renovating was them. So all nine couples will win a house, not just the final, “winning” couple.

This was really fantastic to me, for a lot of reasons. One, each of the couples really needed a new home. Whether they’d hit on hard times, outgrown their old home, or (in the case of the sisters who “lost” last week and wanted a house for their parents so they could be closer to them now that their father has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s) for whatever reason, the new home was needed. But my favorite thing about the show was that they aren’t just giving homes to lucky couples. The couples WORKED for them. They put their blood, sweat, and tears into each of the houses, even down to the final two teams on tonight’s episode. I love it.

On tonight’s season finale, “Dream Holmes,” week after week, each couple followed Mike’s lead and pushed themselves to make the best home possible for a deserving family. Weeks of tools, dry wall, and construction all come down to this moment when the winner is revealed!

See who takes the win and check out the final two houses tonight on FOX at 9/8c.
