Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the reality series Insane Pools: Off The Deep End is all about the building of high-end pools and outdoor spaces. It stars Lucas Congdon of Lucas Lagoons and his team of experts and features lots of local furniture stores and other businesses that help them reach their goal of creating the perfect pool. There's some tough vocab ("ass," "bitch," "hell"; bleeped curses), and occasional minor accidents (no one gets hurt), but overall, this is a fun reality diversion, especially if you dream of someday relaxing next to your very own luxury pool.
Is It Any Good?
This reality series offers a chance to see the kind of imagination, skill, and labor required to create beautiful and sustainable outdoor living spaces. It also shows some of the inevitable mishaps that can occur during the building process; that's where most of the show's conflict comes from. But this doesn't take away from the fun that comes from watching the reveal of the spaces Congdon creates. If you're a fan of building shows, this may be a fun departure, as the team's positive energy and sense of humor (a refreshing change from many spiteful, quarrelsome reality stars) make it a pleasant show to watch.
