NFT: Old DIY/HGTV series: any way to watch them online?

FranknWeezer : 3/7/2018 10:56 am
I know this is really random, but I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on how/where to access out-of-production home improvement series that aired on DIY/HGTV. Stuff like Holmes on Homes, Ground Breakers, etc. seemed to have interesting/useful information on the types of projects I like to do on my own around the house. Can't find them anymore, though. Maybe someone has a place I could look on Reddit, onne of those streaming sites, etc. Just not having much luck with google, and youtube options are quite limited. Thanks for any intel.
something I'd like to know as well

there was a show with a guy called Paul James I believe and he was referred to as the Gardner Guy. They cancelled it a while ago and I thought it was interesting and different. I mean how many shows can you have about shiplap and chandeliers? I hate to yuck on other peoples yum but all their shows seem to be the same now a days.

Well, I have a paper route, and my wife here teaches preschool. Our budget is $650k, but I' like to stay under $600k if possible.

Thanks, Ryan. No dice there, unfortunately. I suspect those networks monitor and shut down any attempt to re-broadcast their stuff on that site.

Maybe there are dvd sets of these things for DIY geeks like me...

There used to be one called "Help Around the House" with a guy named Henry Harrison. He was awesome. Knew every trick in the book. Nothing was ever a really expensive fix, either. That's another one I'd love to find.



Found a couple short videos of him, as well as your guy, Paul James. See link. Clips from HGTV's website.

Wonder if they archive this stuff...
