Reality TV Hits the Road July 14, 2009

Update on “There Goes the Neighborhood”, a CBS reality TV show being filmed on our street:

The walls are tumbling down. Some guy named Joshua started marching around them and someone blew a trumpet and *poof!* down came the walls.  Well, no, it was actually a construction crew (destruction crew?) which was followed by a restoration crew. They’re redoing carpets and floors inside the houses, and resodding the yards in front of the houses. That part is more of a traffic problem than anything has been to date. Massive dumpsters have reduced our street to one lane in two spots, and the bobcats are making a huge mess.

The good news is the neighbors have returned. The passel of kids seems to be really enjoying their freedom and are spending plenty of time outdoors. Of course, they’re bound to secrecy about the results of the show, so we haven’t been asking. Amy thinks they moved the air date up (to early August) because it will be so difficult for the younger contestants to keep the secrets.

We’ve been told all the work will be completed by Wednesday, and we’ve even been invited to a wrap party. We were kinda hoping for a more lasting gesture of goodwill, but we’ll take what we can get. After that, all that’s left to do is wait for the show, and hope it’s reasonably clean and positive.

Technically it’s “deconstruction”.

Or demolition, depending on how you interpret their purpose.
