I wish that such shows featured shopping for other things. A used car show offers the potential for all sorts of cost/benefit equations, along with space for a lovable mechanic character to vet the vehicles. A computer hardware show allows the gamer spouse argue with the multi-media spouse over CPU, GPU and budget. A thrift store clothing show offers the chance to show how much one accomplishes with 20 dollars and good will at Good Will.
I also like that English show in which folks are given a fixed budget to buy at estate sales, and then see how much they fetch at antique auctions. But the concept twist of forcing sellers to pick a treasured possession and then see how much/little it goes for sounds ghastly and yet vaguely appealing.
Today proved to be all clouds and no rain. Tomorrow night the local fireworks display occurs. I plan to walk our dog tomorrow morning.
