The guy in this show disgusts me - just his comment about following the ambulance was enough for me not to watch. It wasnt funny and honestly is so inappropriate it shouldn’t even of been aired. Shame on the producer as well. Hopefully it wasn’t your mother or father that ambulance was going to help.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Flipping Out is an extended profile of quirky, anxious Jeff, a self-proclaimed obsessive-compulsive, who makes onerous demands of his staff and can explode over a tiny missed detail. But despite his challenging personality, he's an appealing character and seems to have real affection for his colleagues. Watching Jeff and his staff work together (and clash frequently) is only part of the show's appeal. The Los Angeles backdrop, with its luxury mansions and ubiquitous palm trees, serves as delicious eye candy. Jeff's reliance on psychics and spiritual guides adds an additional idiosyncratic element to the workplace, and watching Jeff and his staff enjoy and/or endure the New Age input is entertaining.

Most young folks will be bored by the show's real estate focus, as well as Jeff's personal and professional problems. If they do find something appealing here, know that they'll also see frequent power struggles and heated arguments and hear mild profanity.
