Sounds simple, but what results is a 12-week drama 100 meters from Sydney's beautiful Bondi beach. Contestants: Season 1 ----------------- Adam & Fiona Paul & Kylie Warren & Gavin (Waz & Gav) Phil & Amity Dry Season 2 ----------------- Dani & Monique Andrew & Jamie Jason & Kirsten Matt & Jane Steven & Richard

  • It is called Cheating people!!

    2.0
    I am really surprised that the Block producers allowed those two couples to cheat the electricity challenge. I saw that insipid ignorant Jenna say it is just a game. No its not Jenna, cheating is defined as "Act disohonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage". That exactly sums up what Josh, Jenna, Dan and Danni have done and to try and hide behind the pretence that "it is just a game" is to treat the viewers as imbeciles. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and talks like a Jenna its a duck. Why dont you two couples try and beat Phil and Amity with skill in design and product, and not by cheating in a challenge, but I think all have seen that you just cannot keep up.

    I feel so bad for Phil and Amity who are being targeted just because they are so good at what they do. To Phil and Amity, as parents of two beautiful children, you have done so well to maintain such a quality product each and every week. And the boys, now with the new adition are showing that you can maintain your own personality and still be winners.moreless
  • Why is Dani so abusive?

    4.5
    Enjoyable show except for that drop kick Dani. She treats Dan like crap . He should dump her as she is a moron . How she treats Dan could actually be classified as abusive. She puts him down at every opportunity. It is actually putting me off watching the show.



  • Renovation along with a bit of drama... I love it!

    Four couples renovating four apartments...

    The Australian version works fabulously well, where the prize is something to fight for and where you get more involved in the personalities. You get your favourite couple and someone to count as least popular.

    Naturally, not everything is shown on TV, and the crew definitely decides who to make to the beauty and who to have as the beast.



    In Sweden, where I live, a production company decided to make a similar show, but apparently, there must be sunny weather to appreciate it, at least for me. The Swedish copy was not as fun because of how little time, and money, the couples would have to spend renovating the apartments. Also, they did not get the chance to hire builders, but had to do almost everything on their own.



    In the Australian version, there are more intrigues and more pranks, but also more friendship between most of the couples.

    I find it very amusing to watch someone renovate while competing, in comparison to every show where repair people are working, with something an unprofessional like me never could do as good in real life. The Block presents renovation on a level I can relate to, and it makes the renovation amusing, even though not everything is made the very best in the eyes of a professional!
