    Oh then they really were idiots. It will be interesting to see what they do with her back and what format adjustments they make.

    Right off the bat, I assume she will be the on-air host again, introducing the viewers to the city, neighborhood, etc. where the homeowners live, introducing us to the homeowners, and introducing us to the designers and carpenters. I also would bet she would resume being the "money watcher", talking about how much the designers have spent so far, to keep them under budget. In other words, I hope she does what she did before Banyan Productions let her go! :)

    And since they're bringing back Paige, I hope they bring back the original theme songs and day/night/day transition graphics!

    My wife and I were losing interest in the show before Paige left. The designers were going too far doing stupid stuff like the aforementioned hay on the wall. And then there were the black/white rooms. There is no reason this show couldn't have a reasonable budget ($5000 per house) to do nice things to a room. These designers wouldn't live in some of the rooms they "designed."

    And bring back Vern. He and Frank are the only designers I would let step foot in my house.

    Genevieve was really good too - shd didn't go all Hildi on people. (There was the male-Hildi, too, with the gray hair, but I can't remember his name ...)

    You aren't talking about Frank are you?

    Edward did some goofy things as did Doug.

    It was Doug! In my opinion, he and Hildi were more interested in pushing the envelope and being outrageous than they were in listening to the friends of the homeowners and trying to give the homeowners something they might like.

    Thanks for posting the links - I alwasys forget that the "great internet" knows all! :p

    Like most of you, I lost interest when they lost Paige. Show just didn't have any life and wasn't fun to watch. Given Vern has his own show, I suspect he won't be back, but I agree that he and Frank did the best work.

    The alert's up in the Recording Alerts forum: "Trading Spaces" - Paige Returns! - TLC - 01/26/2008 (Saturday)

    I read that the new execs at TLC absolutely want to return to basics, and they will be extremely strict with budgets and time, so it looks like there could be some "tension" in the final day.

    I can't wait to see what they do overall to the show, but I hope they bring back the old theme music!

    Do you ever wonder what happens after the show, after they leave, when someone doesn't like their room? I'd like to see them come back after a certain amount of time and see if they made any changes.

    There have been shows aqbout that. Some of the owners totally hated what was done and changed everything.

    For the last couple of seasons, the end the show by going to back to each house 2 weeks later to see what the owners changed. Some have completely undone everything done on the show, other's haven't changed a thing.

    Same here Earl, We couldn't see how the show would be any good, and from the ratings, it wasn't.
    Already set a series link on BOTH tv's! :D :D Always liked Gen's work, Edward was a cool guy too, Hildi's hay on the walls was WAY out there, and Doug - well he's just Doug ( you know what you are getting with him! )LOL! " That's the way we are doing it and I'm right and that's all there is to that" LOL!!
    Made for an enjoyable evening in on Saturday though...

    Well, we're set up to record. Let's see what Mrs. Shadow's review is. She was quite a fan of this show but has since moved on to more hard-core decorating shows.

    Didn't like Hildi's rings on the wall though.

    Neither did we in my household, sorry Hildi finding crap to stick to the wall got old real fast a few years back, it hasn't gotten any "fresher" just because she took some time off. It was good to see Paige again though. Also one thing that I did like from the "Paigeless" version of Trading Spaces was them going back two weeks later and checking on what people had changed, i'd like to see them bring that back with Paige, heck have Paige be the one who goes back in two weeks!
