Editorial Reviews

Take a fascinating look inside the lives of people whose inability to part with their belongings is so out of control that they are on the verge of a personal crisis.

Whether they're facing eviction, the loss of their children, jail time, or divorce, these hoarders are desperately in need of help. In each 60-minute episode of Hoarders, A&E follows two people struggling to overcome their compulsive behavior while experts work to put them on the road to recovery. For some, throwing away even the tiniest possession a sponge, a button, an empty box is so painful that they won t be able to complete the cleaning process...no matter the consequences. For others, professional help and an organizer's guidance give them the strength to recover. At the end of each episode find out who has been able to keep their hoarding behavior at bay and who, despite help, is still lost inside this painful disease.

Customer Reviews

I like the show because you can learn a lot from it, how hoarders have an illness.
Beverly Morten
One man believes collecting scrap metal in his yard is a valid way to save for his grandchildren's college funds some day.

I can hardly believe that there are actually people who live like that and my heart goes out to them.

Hoarders: The Complete Season One
7 Episodes on 2 Discs (2010)

"Hoarders" on A&E is probably the most compelling show you haven't seen. It is an absolutely fascinating in-depth look at people whose entire lives have been utterly consumed by clutter and possessions, most of which are absolute junk. The inability to part with any of these items as small as a soda can to as large as a broken-down School Bus means many of them are facing threats of eviction, divorce, having their children removed from them, or even going to jail for criminal littering. There are over three million people suffering from obsessive compulsive hoarding in the United States and each episode tells two of their stories.

Hoarding is a psychological, painful disease where people are lost inside their own world with their stuff. Their stuff most of the time is more valuable to them than human relationships. In this show it can affect anyone as young as a seven year-old to as old as a woman in her seventies. These people are being asked to change by their landlords at threat of eviction, by their spouse or significant other on threat of leaving them, and for their own health and well-being as well as their families.

These stories are amazing! A woman whose children had already been taken away from her was trying to clean up so they could be returned and she put her foot down at throwing out an old 7/11 Mountain Dew slurpee cup. One young man is suicidal and suffering panic attacks and is under the impression that if he removes the dog hair all over his apartment, that somehow that will make his dog die faster. The saddest story that brought tears to my eyes was that of a woman in her seventies who was blind in one eye who could not stop taking in stray cats.

to clean out your freezer, wash your windows, straighten up the shelves in the garage or empty out the extra closet - this is it. Watch one of these and you'll have a lot more energy to do whatever you need to!!!

I know that this series is suppose to be disturbing; however after watching an episode I am compelled to clean the entire house. I do not think that this series is for everyone.

I loved Hoarders when it aired on Foxtel in Australia. I found it addictive to watch, so just had to buy the DVD's.

Most episodes I really enjoyed, although there are a couple of really depressing stories.... The young guy whose father is an alcoholic, and also the lady with all the cat corpses in her garage.

Certainly an eye-opener, and makes me feel so much better about our piles of clutter. Also helps me think about why I really need to keep stuff. I only wish there had been more "behind the scenes" footage on the DVD's.

Thoroughly recommended, and I'm looking forward to Season 2 when it comes out.

Nothing gets me motivated to declutter, clean, and organize my house faster than this show. It is interesting, fascinating, inspiring, depressing, and disgusting all at the same time! I feel sorry for most of the hoarders and merely disgusted with some. I think this show is helping a lot of people improve their lives and will probably cause much prevention of hoarding in the next generation. Who needs a book on clearing clutter and getting organized? This show is sure to get you started and keep you going.

Though I'm not a hoarder this show always motivates me to throw stuff out! I'd be intrested to see a 1 year later follow up. Are they cured?

The show is definitely a 'shock' for the average person to watch. It's very hard to imagine the conditions that these people live in. I enjoy the shows where they actually make progress. 1 or 2 of the 'professional counselors', in my opinion, are almost enablers. They spend so much time allowing the person to go through every single item...that no real progress is made. On the other hand, some of the organizers are there to really make a difference...to actually change the living situations. It seems that the houses where the organizers push a little harder are actually the houses that they are able to keep their houses clean after the crews leave. I think many of the people are just overwhelmed and don't know where to start. Once they actually see how good their houses can look, most of them seem much happier, less stressed, and have more motivation to keep it clean.

This is a very interesting show to watch as at times I could see bits of my own actions in some of what people were doing. This show does tend to be a bit dark and the people who they help are in no way cured by the end of the show. Sometimes it was hard to watch as one could imagine smelling the dust and dirt. I actually felt a little physically ill after one or two of the shows... I will say it motivated me to get rid of some stuff (just to prove these people weren't me). I would have liked the show a bit more if they found a way to recycle some of the stuff.
