White Mediocrity on Netflix

Have you ever watched something on Netflix and been like “What is this?”?

This was me when I watched Dream Home Makeover.

I mean, we have seen the formula many times, a couple doing home makeovers and to be honest, there are many that are absolutely great and entertaining, Chip and Joanna Gaines for example.

However, I have never seen such a bland couple devoid of personality before on a home make over show.

I am truly surprised it was picked up for a second season because

  1. It is cringe worthy in the sense that instead of even talking about the design elements they are actually blabbering. We never get to see why certain decisions were made and whatnot as if they are scared people will steal their ideas.
  2. The couple has no personality outside of an Instagram and pinterest aesthetic.
  3. Their designs lack personality. The end product often looks like a staged house as opposed to a house that people will live in.

Let me not even get started on another show “Virgin River” which is basically Dr Quinn Medicine Woman interspersed with Gilmore Girls redux.

There is too many stories out there for Netflix to be doing this surely.
