Kim and Aggie have gone to America to clean up some of the filthiest homes!

This DVD contains all 35 episodes from seasons 1 & 2 and whilst the American version is very commercialised it is still great viewing. This programme was sponsered by cleaning brands which feature alot which gets on your nerves abit as we are not used to that blatant advertising in the UK, but you do kind of get used to it. The total playing time is almost 12 and a half hours and is spread onto 4 discs.

Each episode contains an advert break and the episode lasts for about 20 minutes on average. The second season brings in an actor that features the cleaning products which leave Kim & Aggie to show their alternative approach to cleaning such their lemon juice and bicarb!!!

One difference from the UK version is that this is VERY staged and looks rehearsed which is ok but it loses the personal touch which the UK episodes sometimes have.

This is a very good DVD and I thought it was excellent value and the delivery times from the American sellers averages about 2 weeks to the UK which isnt too bad.

One final thing to note is that this is a region 1 DVD and you will need a DVD player capable of playing American DVD's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and motivating show, best described as "porn for clean freaks" 26 May 2009
By Penumbra - Published on
Verified Purchase
Two British ladies, Kim Woodburn and Aggie MacKenzie, take on some of the messiest homes in the country. The results are sometimes hilarious and sometimes quite touching, but always entertaining and motivating.

The shows follow a formula wherein our heroines are called in to what have to be the filthiest homes in the country to perform a cleaning intervention. The home owners are invariably hoarders who couldn't find their floors even if they wanted to vacuum or dust. Often the situation is made much worse by multiple pets. At the beginning of each episode Kim and Aggie take us on a tour of the home's sad squalor. This is followed by a confrontation with the home owner about how they ever arrived at such a state. Kim affects an air of righteous, but comic, indignation as she takes them to task with colorful expressions like, "You filthy beggar, you!" or "Mucky pup!" Some people laugh it off while others seem genuinely contrite, but all appear to be at a total loss as to where to begin to remedy the situation. Then the cleaning begins!

The ladies show the "filth offender" a few interesting cleaning tips. For instance, did you know that hot sauce can be used to clean brass? Or that shaving cream is great to clean and shine a stainless steel sink? Once they get the home owners on the right track, they are sent away and Kim and Aggie bring in their cleaning crew. (Yes, sometimes it takes a village to clean a house!) At the end of each show, the owners are brought back in and taken on a tour of their now spotless and sparkling rooms. Some laugh with delight, others burst into tears of relief. All promise to do better in future and keep it clean. There is a follow up two weeks later to see if the owners are keeping their promise.

Kim and Aggie are engaging people who manage to make housecleaning entertaining and fun. They wear outrageously trimmed rubber work gloves as they go about their tasks. Kim is never less than perfectly coifed and bejeweled as she cleans toilets, tubs, and sinks. Her commentary is often laugh out loud funny. Aggie, the more serious of the two, takes swabs and samples which are sent off to a lab. She then has the chore of explaining to the owners just what is growing in their foul bathrooms, kitchens, or bedrooms.

The shows presented here are from the Lifetime series wherein the ladies tackle homes in the US (notably California and New York). Although they use some generic cleaning items (baking soda, vinegar, lemons, salt, bleach, etc.) the US series contains a lot of brand name product placement. By contrast, the episodes produced for the BBC rely exclusively on generic items.

It's really hard to sit through an entire episode of the show. You keep wanting to get up and try one of their cleaning tips, or you may discover an irresistible urge to see what the top of your own ceiling fans look like. Even already good housekeepers can learn something from these gals! If you're someone who needs a little nudge to get started on your cleaning, watching these shows should provide it!

The DVD set contains two seasons (thirty nine episodes) on four disks. There are no special features. The disks are packaged in a slim case, two on each side. The top disks are a bit of a challenge to get tightly on their spindles; two came loose during shipping but arrived undamaged.

3.0 out of 5 stars Until the BBC version comes out... 2 Jan. 2011
By E. L. Fough - Published on

...then this will have to do.

I was so excited to see this available. I didn't read the reviews until after the fact and had no idea this started in the U.S. on Lifetime. The BBC America version is FAR, FAR, FAR better. In the BBC version the houses are dirtier, the voiceover guy is better and they use home cleaning solutions (like vinegar and lemon juice) rather than any name brands. I don't think the product placement is as obnoxious as other reviewers and they did use beeswax on the wood so it isn't all about the product placement.

If you like the show and want a fix but do not have BBC America on cable this will suffice until the BBC releases DVD version of the REAL show that we have all come to know and love. This version is merely adequate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kim & Aggie Cross the Pond 7 April 2008
By Sharon12345678 - Published on

The DVD's for sale are produced by Lifetime TV, not BBC, and are episodes made here in the United States, not the ones made in Great Britain. These are just as good as the British episodes. It was great to have epsiodes to watch I had never seen before, and fun to see my hometown in one. Although I was expecting the BBC version, the American ones are worth the price as well. You get thirty-five shows on four discs. Kim & Aggie's charm translates just as well over here. Grime & clutter know no boundaries. I was tickled pink to see these DVD's available & will glady purchase more seasons, BBC or Lifetime.

4.0 out of 5 stars filth has never been so funny 8 July 2008
By Nina Dharmasaroja - Published on

I watched maybe 2 episodes of HCIYH? on lifetime a few years ago and never forgot how funny and disgusting this show was. I never seemed to catch any other episodes after that and then it went off the air on Lifetime. Recently I discovered season 1 and 2 dvd available and immediately bought it. I had a Kim and Aggie marathon this weekend. These shows are hilarious! The endorsements for the cleaning products are a bit cheesy but the hosts and the homes that are shown are unbelieveable! These homes are not only dirty but the clutter is unreal! No wonder the houses are so dirty-you can't even get past the clutter to clean. What cracks me up the most is that some of the people really didn't seem to know how to clean and were amazed what a simple paper towel could clean up. My fave episodes were the sludge sisters and the episode with the divorced man who lived in a garage. I really think they changed their lives! I learned a lot of great cleaning tips from these shows too. So it is entertaining and educational! The best part of the shows are how kim and aggie really get down and dirty and are actually smelling the nasty carpets and sheets and they touch the toilets with their bare hands. Incredible! Those are two brave women. The show will inspire you to have pride in your home and start cleaning up. Once the BBC episodes go to dvd, I will be buying it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone needs to watch this! 27 Sept. 2011

This is the most outrageous, horrifying, hilarious and inspiring series I have ever watched. At times I had to cover my eyes as I do during scary movies. I sent this to my sister and all my grown children after watching only the first few episodes. Their reaction was much the same as mine. Ignoring a bit of product plugging, particularly in the first episodes, we were all transfixed by the entertaining and inspiring approach to TOTAL clean presented by Kim and Aggie. I could not finish the first disc without wanting to jump up and start cleaning my house thoroughly! My super-clean daughter, who finished all four discs before I did, confessed that she was cleaning her kitchen above and beyond the usual. Her kindergarten-age son has been "hunting bacteria" everywhere in an attempt to eradicate it! (Hmmm...a budding microbiologist, perhaps...) I feel a need to watch it again and write down the homemade cleaning formulas, as I cannot remember them all or their proper uses. In all, a most entertaining, funny and useful series.
