Review of "Making
airs Tuesdays 10/9c on NBC
I was interested in watching this show because it seemed
different. It's a competition show for people who like
to do crafts. I am not a crafter, but I do like to watch
people who are talented in that area. The show is executive
produced by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, and one of the
problems with the show, in my opinon, is that they also host
the show. The show tries not to take itself seriously, and
that is good, but it fails to strike a balance between the
comedy of the hosts and the purpose of the show (which is to
spotlight the talenta of the contestants). The jokes are
funny sometimes, but most of the time they are very corny. I
wish they would concentrate on the contestants' stories, and
what inspired them to begin crafting, instead of doing so
many corny jokes. They also don't show enough of the
contestants making the crafts, for the two challenges they
have to complete each show.
One contestant goes home
every show, and the last crafter left at the finale of the
show takes home ten thousand dollars and the title "Master
Maker." I think the show tends to go slowly and be boring in
spots, but if it can pick up the pace a bit, it will be
fine. There are a lot of people who are crafters and will
enjoy the show, but I don't think it will appeal to people
who are not crafters. I hope the show will make improvements
and get better, so I will keep watching. I give it a 3 out
of 5 stars.
From executive producers and hosts Amy Poehler and Nick
Offerman comes a uniquely lighthearted competition series
reuniting two of pop culture’s biggest BFFs and celebrating
the creativity and craftiness in all of us.
six-episode competition, eight of the most talented makers
from across the country will take on a variety of handmade
projects with the hopes of impressing Poehler, Offerman and
our expert judges, Simon Doonan and Dayna Isom Johnson.
Poehler and Offerman both share a love and passion of
craftsmanship, albeit from different perspectives. Poehler
is a self-proclaimed crafting novice who has long harbored a
secret appreciation for those who can imagine and execute
incredible things by hand. Offerman is a New York Times
best-selling author in the woodworking space and is well
known for his love for making a variety of objects himself.
Every show will revolve around a central theme that
draws inspiration from hugely popular, nationwide trends in
crafting and DIY, which the whole family can enjoy.
Each episode of the competition will consist of two
projects that allow the makers to demonstrate their
specialized talent, while sharing skilled insights and
touching personal stories. First, the "faster-craft" round
will be a timed challenge that will test their ability to
not only work quickly but imaginatively as well. Next, the
makers will move to the "master craft collection," a
one-of-a-kind themed challenge in which the competitors will
need to use their expertise and get inventive in order to
assemble a winning craft that fits the theme of that week.
Blending the atmosphere of a serene outdoor setting and
innovative cinematography designed to showcase the beautiful
craftsmanship at work, this friendly competition will focus
on the character and camaraderie of the crafting community
and through it all, Amy and Nick will provide heartfelt
encouragement, guidance and plenty of laughs.
