Unlike Trading Spaces and many of the other shows available, TLC’s In A Fix isn’t a plain old decorating show, and it isn’t just ANY home reno show, either. Every single crew member is extremely knowledgeable, with many exceptional skills, not to mention exceedingly good looks, and an unbelievable chemistry with each other going on, as well as wonderful senses of humor. They are the ONLY show of their genre that teaches the homeowner they are helping AND the viewers how to do it right, while still having fun at the same time. All of which make the show stand WAY out from the glut of HI shows that we are constantly bombarded with day in and day out. Because of all those factors, it is the only home improvement show that I will watch. None of the other shows actually explain exactly how they are doing everything, and why it shouldn’t be done a certain way. The crew members talk directly to the camera as if the viewers are really there, and aren’t afraid to admit when they have made a mistake. They explain how to fix the problem, as well as how to avoid the same catastrophe in the future, in case the viewer wants to try out their newfound knowledge at home. They also make the viewers feel like family. How do I know that the show needs to be saved? Well, crew member Don Wood voiced his suspicions that the show would be cancelled in an interview done on one of the IAF fan sites not too long ago. Then Danny Paul alerted the fans on the TLC In A Fix message board that TLC isn’t going to renew their contract, and that their current one will run out in the next couple of months. After that, there won’t be anymore new shows, but TLC plans on airing re-runs of the show for the next two years. We had a lot of people on the boards that were skeptical about the true identity of the poster claiming to be Danny, and contacted him directly through his own personal website. He did in fact reply back confirming the information. Not too long after Danny let us know, Don also posted the same info on his own website. Then, one of the TLC MB fans received a phone call from crew member James Lunday, who was calling while filming an episode to thank them for the fan mail he was sent, and later called them back off camera only to let them know all of it is true. Since TLC is going to keep playing re-runs, they can (and have been) deny(ing) the fact that the show is cancelled. Technically, they have just ceased production of the show. Discovery/TLC has put out press releases saying that they plan on getting back to their roots and truly become ‘The Learning Channel’ by steering clear of all the home improvement shows. Yet they have just signed contracts with Genevieve Gorder to star in her own show called ‘Town Haul’, and Doug Wilson for his own show titled ‘Moving Up’. Neither one really teaches us anything useful—Genevieve is basically just redecorating a whole town, and Doug is interviewing people who sold their home, showing the new owners remodeling it, and then asking the old owners what they think of the renovations that have been done. Doug’s show may actually teach us something, but in my opinion, it’s not a good lesson. Watching his show will just make us all paranoid of change, and not want to sell the home we grew up in and/or have very fond memories of, by showing us that if we sell it, the new owners may destroy what we once held dear. In A Fix is an innovative show that truly is ‘Life Unscripted’, and appears to be the only one TLC had that really taught the viewers that they COULD do it themselves. If you take a jog on over to the TLC IAF MB, you might have to do some searching, but you will find the testimonials of many fans telling how In A Fix has touched their lives; many of them being women who are no longer scared to use powertools thanks to the show’s Jennie Lyn Berntson, and numerous others whom have found out that a lot of home repairs really aren’t that hard to do as long as you have the know-how, correct tools, and proper technique. In A Fix is made up of an astounding cast that no one will ever be able to duplicate again, and it will be a darn shame to see a ‘family’ such as this disband and go back to their home states and countries all because TLC is creating new shows that are just cheap clones of Trading Spaces (while using the Trading Spaces cast in them) in an attempt to revive the following TS once had. TLC is also talking about incorporating health, travel, and science shows into their new line-up, when there are already channels (some of them owned by Discovery/TLC) that more than adequately cover all of these subjects. Sounds like overkill-- all over again, to me… If you have never seen the show before, I urge you to take a peek and see how great it is. You won’t regret it. You might even be able to help get their contract renewed either by TLC, or another interested network. One fan started a petition to save In A Fix. If you are interested in signing, it is called 'Save In A Fix From Falling in the Cracks' on thepetitionsite with a .com at the end. I can't post the actual url here since I am a new member. There are also many unofficial fansites for the various crew members out there. Thank you very much for letting me post on your boards. It is greatly appreciated by the crew and the fans! Long Live In A Fix! Heather P. (I don't know if my whole name will show up here, but if it does, I must have forgotten to add the r onto the end of my last name) P.S. TLC--If you read any of the viewer's input here, then I must warn you that you will be losing most of the IAF fans as viewers once the last of the new shows air, including me. Don't you think enough of your viewers have changed the channel with the exit of Paige Davis?
