    Do you watch any kind of TV shows based on the building/construction/woodworking trades?
    And what are they?

    There is no minimum post requirement,

    And of course the builder, crazy doc, farmer, hawaiian crazy bird feeder maker and the wacko floridian bee keeper...

    I used too, but most of the shows have gone away and I dont have cable TV anymore and rarely watch it. I liked the woodrights shop, of course Norm, David Mark's, the wordsmiths shop, rough cut when it first came out. But now it's mostly YouTube.

    There’s just not that much on tv. Only ones I can see with any regularity are on PBS—Saturday mornings— right when I want to be in the shop.
    Rough cut, woodsmith—etc.— if they’re not running some kind music or health thing.
    I haven’t visited youtube much— costs time to filter through what I don’t want to see.
    Other than that, I guess the next things I watch are the videos on sites like Craft Supply that are actually quite good.

    I'd forgot about The Yankee Workshop. Great show and a great host.

    I watch Roy Underhill sometimes, Wordsmith Shop sometimes. Nick Offerman did a show called Making It on network TV that was a Maker Reality show that was pretty good. Like others, I look on YouTube for different things, and of course @Kenbo's YouTube shows. Tony

    whathesaid Not much worth watching on TV lately. Luckily humorous videos like @Kenbo and Tim Yoder's can be found on YouTube.

    Nothing really on TV anymore :blush: so it’s mostly YouTube and Vimeo. We should compile a list of good videos/shows in a thread.

    I used to watch TOH. Then it went to commercial based TV.
    A once 30 min. show is only 16 mins. now because of commercials.
    I don't watch much TV now, only the weather when it's getting bad so I know
    when to dig out my shovels & now my snowblower.

    We like the shows about people living off the grid, like "Life Below Zero" and such. There's always somebody doing some kind of woodworking with whole trees or salvage and that's fun and imaginative. Otherwise, most TV is POOR and the shows, as Herb pointed out, are now mostly commercials--about medicines that most people can't afford anyway. It's horrible how they push that stuff on people. I bet doctors HATE hose commercials. I sure do.
