Did you watch?

Last night the Frisch Family of Toledo's episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition aired. Seeing Toledo highlighted on national television (in a positive way) was really nice. I couldn't believe how fast the hour of the show actually went knowing how much planning, time, effort, volunteering, and coordinating went into one week of the show's taping and the building of the new home. Did you watch?

i watched...and was a bit disappointed. i would have liked it to be a 2 hour episode -- they barely showed anything w/ the build (that whole fast forward thing was annoying). and there was nothing about how the dad saved his partner during the riots or how the fire station was made over. it so easily could have been a 2 hour episode. but it was nice to see toledo in such a positive light. that is a rare thing. :)

I did. They had me crying in the first 3 minutes. And I didn't stop.

They seem like a GREAT family. Very deserving.

I thought it was great that they showed so much of the city. I haven't watched in a while so I don't know if that's normal or not, but it was great to see the Zoo and fire department and stuff.

I wonder what it's like to be the only woman among 12 boys??

I cried the whole time. What a great family and even the kids seemed so thankful.
