Fixer-Upper Downer

Fio's tried out Fixer-Upper on HGTV and doesn't like it.

She thought she would--it's set in Waco, where Fiorella grew up, and she even recognizes some of the locations.  And the premise is interesting--Chip, a contractor type, and his wife, Joanna, a decorator type, give prospective homeowners their choice of three down-and-out houses, then renovate the winner.

The only problem--aside from Fio being tired of the "choice of three" format--is that the renovated houses all end up looking the same.  And, well, also that Chip and Joanna's relationship is downright irritating.  There's something about her humorless intensity and his country-boy goofiness that doesn't add up.
