I haven't seen it but I've heard horror stories about the show from online. If I catch it on TV I'll try to take a peek.

It's an amazing show.

Total catastrophe are these peoples' lives. However, I think that 20-something gay kid wasn't so much a hoarder as he was a lazy drama queen.

I season passed it last week and have been hooked. I am so the opposite of a hoarder so it really drives me nuts to watch those people. I also like "Lock and Load" with R. Lee Ermey, and I would LOVE to see him on Hoarders so he can deal with them. That would be the greatest reality show of all time.

That show is tough to watch. There's some sort of mental retardation going on with all these people. Anyone see the episode where they found like 50 cat corpses in that house?

There is a hoarder in my family, and this show fascinates me to no end.

I don't know how those people avoided any criminal charges...that was unbelievable. They need to be thrown in an asylum at the very least.

It's not a matter of criminal law.... all municipality zoning issues/civil and rarely involves police. I know what you mean, though.

My ex house sat for a hoarder once. It was a big house in the nicest neighborhood in town. She was hired to swap out video tapes and program several VCRs. The house was covered in piles of things, loosely categorized and stacked up, with little paths left between them to walk around. There was a bed half covered with empty Dr. Pepper cans. There was a bathtub full of slivers of Zest soap bars. There were bags and bags of things that had been bought, dropped in stacks and never touched again. There was a Rolls Royce sitting in the garage with the tires rotted off.

It reminded me of C.S. Lewis's description of Hell in "The Great Divorce", where everyone gets everything they want and are eventually isolated by it.
