I don’t know what came over me, but I watched Trading Spaces: Town & Country. The original Trading Spaces show never appealed to me, but there was something about the prospect of seeing how city and country folks react to the drastic changes in environment. The social experiment aspect of the show is far more appealing than the silliness about what color walls and fabric to use.
In this first show I noticed something interesting… the city woman was not at all happy about being in the country while the guy loved it. The country woman was delighted at the city, and the guy seemed to think it sucked. I wonder if this is a trend? Could it be that the country life is a “guy thing” and that city life is a “girl thing?”
I think I am going to TiVo the show to see if the trend continues – I can always fast foward through the decorating crap.
