Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This lighthearted series stands out from other design shows thanks to its use of football metaphors -- like "scouting" a space -- to define each step of the design process. Meanwhile, Johnson's occasional lack of finesse when it comes to sharing his opinions with his clients leads to some funny -- albeit awkward -- moments.

As with many designers on TV, there are times when Johnson tries to put his clients' preferences to the side, especially when they differ with his own aesthetic. But he's clear about the importance of being polite and professional and ultimately satisfying his clients. And because he seems happy and confident in his new career, it's hard not to be happy for him.
