What do you think of "Hoarders"?

Is it people just being lazy or something else?

  • I think it's DEEP mental problems that cause people to hoard. That TV show about them? I just want to see the people be tied up while others come in and throw all that crap away on them, or pile it in the yard and burn it on them. Have you seen some of those crazy hoarders?? Man O man!!

  • I've always been fascinated with human psychology, and Hoarders is simply fascinating in a disgusting sort of way. It's amazing how a person's grief manifests itself. But I'll never comprehend how some of the hoarders STILL can't get their act together even at the prospect of losing their minor children! I mean, really, what WILL it take for the people to realize they have a serious problem that needs to be addressed STAT!!

  • I don't think it's laziness rather than something else that is going on with these individuals.

  • They aren't lazy, hoarding is a disease called disposophobia.

  • They have a mental issue going on. It's shocking to me to see that show but I am the exact opposite.

  • On some of those shows i think it's laziness but on Hoarders, no. I think it's horribly sad and i feel terrible for those people.

  • Definitely something else. It's an illness, like depression or bipolar disorder. And it's really sad.

  • Hoarding is part of an OCD disorder. These people cannot let go of "things" because it makes them anxious so they save everything and can't get rid of anything.
