Customer Reviews

Very interesting show about people who truly have mental health issues.
Judy Bain
Even the ones who appear angry or indifferent....you can see the pain in their eyes and on their faces.

My guilty secret is I feel better about my house cleaning after watching Hoarders.

I have two babies. When I start telling myself "I haven't slept in 2.5 years I don't need to clean today... tomorrow would be fine.." I fix a cup of tea and watch hoarders while the babes destroy stuff. Solid gold man. This show has me scrubbing washing the dishes and listing things on freecycle before the credits roll. Thank you to the "cast" who let us into their hoard. It helps. P.s. Dr. Z... or Dr. Blonde really doesn't seem to help like the others do.

I am not sure why I have this show on while I clip coupons and/or go about my day. I am not a hoarder, nor is my boyfriend, but there have been hoarders in my family. Like many of the people who appear on the show, it is heartbreaking to watch someone with an obvious mental illness scrape and fight to keep urine-encrusted curtains or other worthless/disgusting items. Their living conditions are repugnant; the series has roughly a 50/50 split on who is able to accept the assistance of the Hoarders crew and work to change their lives or who denies the issue and continues to collect... stuff... to fill a psychological need.

While a lot of reality programming glorifies the lifestyles of different people, whether it be the opulent actions of the ridiculously rich or the questionable moral choices of young adults from New Jersey, Hoarders goes a long way to explain why the homes that they struggle to clear of clutter/debris/trash and the perils of going about the cleaning process in the wrong manner. Every episode airs with the same warning, that hoarding is characterized as a need to collect items, including those that are unsanitary, to the major detriment of their lives. Hoarders often hide their problems; the show definitely proves the old adage about what goes on behind closed doors. It is in this truth that the viewer comes to sympathize with those people who bare their horrible secret on national television. Yes, the show displays the depths of the illness. Yes there are many, MANY disgusting things that a "normal" person would never allow to happen, such as leaving dirty diapers all over a room or allowing cats to take over a house, creating a 900 square-foot litter box.

But therein lies the point of the show: hoarding IS an illness.

I don't know what makes this show so addictive, but I can't get enough of it. I will be watching for quite a while.

This is one of the best reality series I have ever watched. I truly feel sorry for most of the clean up crews and the extreme filth and hazardous conditions they have to deal with. They are always so professional and respectful of the hoarders. I enjoy seeing the end results of everyone's work.

I'm red-faced about not remembering much on Vicki. However, I recall that she reaped what she sowed. Since she couldn't change, she garnered unsurprising results. Like many people on this show, she truly needs a TON of help.

This may have been a lop-sided episode. I check a message board and almost every person commented on Randy alone. Randy "hoards" pinball machines and stuff like that. He wants to start his own store full of the games you'd find at an amusement park. He has 100s of mannequins designed to look like himself: it's a little bit Liberace and a whole lot of narcissism. This episode stood out because Randy moved a huge object that "Hoarders" entire crew could not do. One "Hoarders" staff member chewed him out for showing off/acting out like that. Randy seems more like a collector than a hoarder to me; his situation is so interesting that I think the show wanted to cram his square peg into its round whole.

I am soooo curious about the future of his business. Maybe it's so campy and retro that it will be a success. However, maybe the youth are so into Xbox and texting that they have no love or appreciation for skeeball and clowns and stuff like that. Randy seemed like Gene Wilder in "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory" in many ways. Randy says he never married and doesn't say much more. Because he reminded me sooo much of John Waters with his Cockamamy's store on the "Simpsons" episode "Homer's Phobia," I can't help but wonder if he is a rainbow-flag gentleman.

Because Randy is a "bachelor," you don't see the crazy family dysfunctional dynamics that you see in many an episode of this series. This is very much worth a peek even as much as it doesn't qualify for the show's typical formula.

I love watching hoarders, because it makes me feel relatively normal :)
The format is always the same, but sometimes the problems aren't resolved, so it can keep you guessing.
It's an eerie look inside people's minds and their frightening homes. You'll feel like maybe you can sit down & not clean your own house this weekend, because it's spotless in comparison!

I don't know why this show has so captured my attention. I think it's the psychology of the hoarders. Some of them are nice people who suffered tragic events that put them over the edge, but lots of them are just nasty, angry people. One of them at least is a psychopath, who had to work hard to bring up some crocodile tears, which was the only work she ever did. Dr. Pfeffer was a total pro, but it seemed to me that he wasn't fooled: that lady was just a lazy, greedy manipulator with a mile-wide mean streak. I felt sorry for the friend who'd kindly taken her in, and so sorry for her daughter; I was very impressed with that young lady, who was so helpful and sweet to that vile woman, despite the pain her mother obviously enjoyed inflicting. Another lady with a viper tongue just pierced her adult children over and over with her utterly despicable comments. Her house was beyond repair, but her relatives hung in there for her, for some reason. If she was my mom, she would have seen the back of me long ago. Another lady just yelled and intimidated her husband and boys, and repeatedly stomped away muttering that she'd do it herself, except the whole time, SHE was THE obstacle to getting anything done. It wasn't just ladies, of course. Some of the men just seemed to check out, until something tipped them over and they went off, poking the cleaners with a cane or snarling and threatening people.

Every one of the hoarders got angry or teary at some point. It seems to me that the angry and immature ones were most likely to stay stuck in the disease. Those who maybe got angry but had genuine moments of humility and understanding of the consequences that their behavior has on others seem most likely to make a real change.
