|Home for Life||There's something lacking about this curious series - maybe it's the wishy-washy format or the fact that corporate brand designers Jamie and Phil never get their hands dirty. They just pop into suburban houses, mildly insult the decor, get the owners to think about colours or whatever, then leave them to it. The pair are on a crusade against magnolia! There is a definite lack of passion coming from the presenters and we're really at a loss to know why this programme is needed at all. ||1/5||E|
