I never really got into the show but the TV was on and Tim was in the
bathroom. I got a chuckle out of this scene
We are going to replace the existing galvanized plumbing. Before we do
that, we are going to have to remove this section of sheet rock. The
tool I have selected for the job is a 20 lb sledge hammer.
Reminds me of all these fix it up shows and remodeling shows. It seems they
always are trying to see how small of pieces they can make the sheetrock
into. When removing a wall, they make it into microchips instead of just
sawsall'ing it into two pieces and carrying it out.

Looks like some of them don't know how to use a sledge hammer and could get
seriously hurt. Reminds me of armature fighters coming out swinging with
haymakers but couldn't hit a thing. It really doesn't take that much longer
to remove it gently in one piece so the cabinets could be reused in the
garage, shed or even donated.
Come on folks! People don't watch a hockey game for the player's skating or
athletic ability but the fights. They don't watch an auto race for the
racer's driving skills but the crashes. They don't watch these home
improvement shows for the carpentry skills, but the destruction!
Yes, I always laugh at when they hand a 98 pound woman a 10 pound sledge to
knock a small section of drywall down.
There is a Canadian reno show where the host/contractor has a simple way of
pulling drywall down without any hammer. He punches a hole in the sheet with
his fist, then grabs it at the hole and pulls the whole sheet down. So
simple to the other extreme.
Then you haven't seen Miriam Johnson in action! Watch Hometime recently?
Speaking of which, does anyone recall a home repair show with a guy
named Craig Lowe (I could have that a little wrong...) with a really
simple opening -- I think "The Handyman Show" in cartoon.
This guy was 100% common sense, and I'd never miss an episode. If I
were going to be elsewhere, I'd tape the show. He'd handle appliances,
paint, concrete, furnaces and so forth with straightforward demonstrations.
Naturally our cable service took him off the air for some realty show.
