    I quit watching Pond Stars. Found helpful ideas a number of times. Could not "connect" with the cast. No denying all the ponds were beautiful. Would have preferred more of a "how to" show.........Just sayin'

    One of the reasons the experts on koiphen consider the show nonsense.

    Yeah I would agree with that assessment of the production value of the show - the made up drama adds nothing as far as I'm concerned. But that's TV. I would enjoy seeing a lot more of the how-to information that kind of gets glossed over, but obviously the producers feel that won't be of interest to the general public. It's too bad - I think they're wrong about that.

    The fun for me is seeing the before and after - for example, the backyard they created for the AS employee last week was AMAZING. From a plain old flat suburban midwestern backyard to a pond oasis. I think that could inspire lots of people to take a look a their own backyard and think "hmmm...". We've seen dozens of AS ponds, but being able to see the yard before the pond is built is a fun aspect of the show.
