I’m not disagreeing, but on the other hand presumably Goodwill does sell unstained furniture and some T-shirts that don’t have holes in them. Part of the premise (and the same was true in the first show) is that changes to the outside do help with changes to the inside — and it does seem to bear out. This is not a “take what you have and make it work better” show when it comes to living spaces, but it is kind of that with everything else. When all is said and done, it’s still more uplifting and encouraging than almost anything else on TV and I’ll take what I can get of that!
