  • I saw the whole first season. It just made me sad for those people and then motivated me to clean my entire house and get rid of as much as possible. There are a couple different things that can cause it but one is that it can be an OCD tendency.

  • I think it's nasty but I can't stop watching it, it's like a train wreck. I can't imagine wanting to keep trash and old diapers, or even hoarding animals. definately gross!

  • Isolation, that is what causes such behavior.

  • They have episodes on Netflix and I was watching the first season. The lady who saved food and just left it wherever in her house and didn't remember it was there, and then saved tons of outdated food was ridiculous. Sheesh! Yuck!

  • Yes, and it is sort of my motivation for cleaning because I don't want my house getting even a bit like that. And it is a mental condition.

  • This week was my second week watching it. It's absolutely shocking to me. Doesn't it make you wonder about your own neighbor though?! LOL!!

  • It is an obsession. It is a mental condition.
