OT: Commercial for a TV Show Posted by Ainaechoiriel January 02, 2005 - 19:00:27 Topic ID# 3254
If you ever watch just one episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, the
one to watch is on right now on ABC. I have only seen one part of one
episode and it was the conclusion of the one that is on right now. And I
needed a box of Kleenex's.

For a home makeover show? Yeah. These guys are doing a great thing. A
14-year-old kid applied to have his home made over for his family. His
parents are deaf. His younger brother is blind and autistic. What they do
with this house to help with safety and communication and a learning/play
environment for the younger boy is incredible and heart-warming. For those
not in the US, I'll spoil below just in case you're interested.

Now, it's been awhile since I've seen the end and there's another hour
before I see the end now but what I remember is incredible rooms for each of
the members of the family. The mom has her craft area with video to see
what Lance (younger brother) is doing. Stephen, older brother, gets an
Outback-themed room where he can have a place to just be himself. (He's
incredible,s o helpfuul for his family). Dad gets a workshop full of tools.
And Lance, he gets a huge playroom with places to crawl, swing, learn, play,
all his Braille books and stuff. And a brand new swing set outside (Lance
loves to swing). And Stephen gets a scholarship. Oh, and Marlee Matlin
drops by.

Okay, commercial over.
