One of the best programmes on the telly, featuring history, craftmanship, artistry and sentiment. Unmissable.

Not quite the same
It is less understated and loud with more unnecessary talking. It has lost its subtle and sentimental nature. What was once a gentle afternoon viewing is now in danger of overegging the pudding.

He is amazing how he can bring items back to their former glory. It takes hours often with numerous intricate bits and pieces. They all are so good at what they do. Does it really need a presenter as the repairers can meet and greet and rightfully get all the praise.

Be fair on JB!
He is good at sweeping the floor and making the tea.

Great Show
Lovely programme. He is interesting to see the experts in their field doing the restorations to cherished pieces. I think JB is surplus to requirements as all he does is wonder around and ask stupid questions and take the glory for the restoration.Always first in to introduce himself and shake hands. I am sure the experts are capable of speaking to the client.

He liked the red painted chair leg. That is about all he is capable of so he would!

JB not required thanks!
Superbly talented restorers, all with lovely bubbly personalities. They can do everything required on this programme, so there is absolutely NO NEED for the glory hogging pointless presence of someone whose idea of restoration is painting one chair leg a different colour to the other three!

Great Programme
Love this programme, its a treat to see experts at work and despite the flak he gets on some reviews I do like Jay - someone has to connect all the bits together and I think he makes a good job of it

Love this show - I think people should stop making nasty comments about certain people - they all work together as a team. I am sure jay does a lot of work behind the scenes. Keep going, you are all brilliant .

There are a number of genuinely talented people who could present this amazing show, and give a smile.it is a travesty that this talentless amateur person should take credit for it's success.

Jay Blades
Now this is an excellent show, it's a pity it isn't on more. Jay Blades leave the chap alone, I know he doesn't do much on the program but both me and the wife like his smiling face, and he is facing his own personal demons. I like the two ladies that repair toys and the Upholsterer. Can't fault the program

to the censor
I wrote a reply to 'candice', but it didn't make it to the list. It was honest, non insulting and precise. Was this the problem?

I would like to see more about the actual work done on the item's instead of glimpses of little bits here and there. Jay Blades is not necessary as the craft person could deal directly with the client especially when they pick up their item. JB doesn't deserve thanks or a hug!

slippy pole
Losing ground now to other fixit shows. Too much time spent on the intros, too much hugging going on,too many fake tears on the showings, formula going stale. Jay Blades is a joke.

stretching it
Yesterday's show featured a young man who brought in, what he claimed was, his grandfather's helmet which he wore throughout World War 1. He said his grandfather served on the Somme(1916), Gallipoli(1915) & Ypres(1916-1917). I would think this was highly dubious,you would not be transferred from the western front to the invasion of Turkey & then back again, all the campaigns were very bloody you would be very lucky to survive them all.The helmet itself was in pristine condition, with its black original issue colour, this would have been repainted for front line service.

Jay blades
Jay blades is completely surplus to requirements. The time spent on him posing around could be more usefully spent concentrating on showing the actual craftspeople at work

When will the BBC have some more NEW repair shops on, and not repeats that have no repeat listed.

Is Jay Blades really necessary? The rest of the staff are superb and produce some fabulous work. He has not produced a single item while he seems to take credit for all of their work.

The Repair Shop for ever
I loved the first series and could not wait for the second one to start, and I am now looking forward to the third series. Please may we have more episodes? I have been fortunate to visit the location and see inside the barn used this was a magical experience. Heart warming, feel good and so enjoyable to see much loved objects returned to their former glory and have them working again. Thank you to all the team for this programme.

Put this on instead of bargain hunt. The story of the violin from the concentration camp was very moving.

Love The Reair Shop
Great interesting program focussed on repairing loved family heirlooms regardless of value and filmed in the most spectacularly beautiful surroundings. I love the old barn features which goes so well with the theme. Excellent job.

Great programme, much much better than that stupid programme, Money For Nothing. At least these items are are of real value to their owners and there is never any mention of their value.
