My Strange Addiction

I never get excited about the premiere of a television show. Ever. Well, unless they come up with some type of reality show about a guy who travels the world eating various pork and bacon products. Now that would be must see tv. Other than that, I don't get excited. I am excited about My Strange Addiction though. It starts tomorrow on TLC, and I have a feeling that I am going to be disappointed after my initial bout of excitement. The previews have sucked me in and I can't wait to watch someone eat toilet paper for an hour, but I also thought I would never get enough of Hoarders and after about episode 5 I was just depressed and it never changed.

Oh, and how do you sleep with a running blow dryer in your bed?

WTF?!?!?

I must admit I got this red fuzzy wuzzy blanket that I have to sleep with at night now. I feel like a 4 year old.

I never watch TLC so I hadn't heard about this show. Kate doesn't have a show anymore, right? I'd hate to see any commercial previews with her.

As I tell the youngsters I know: as you go through life, if you keep your eyes open, there's no end to the weird things you keep seeing. Like this!

Enty, please don't start posting about these freaks. Pretty please with a cherry on top.

I'm with MCH.

I watched Hoarders and while it prompted me to tidy my house and dump the crap that I was holding onto post haste, it is a depressing subject matter when people have compulsions or mental illness. I feel that reality TV is exploiting people for fame/money in exchange for public voyeurism. Saying that, I am not a fan of any of the other reality crap either (like Dancing With or Doing Anything with the "Stars"), so maybe I'm just not the target audience?

Hi, my name is Merlin and I'm addicted to reality cooking shows like Hell's Kitchen, Iron Chef, and anything Top Chef. Ok, I'm also hot for ANYTHING Gordon does.
I can't explain the addiction, and I don't want to. I just know I enjoy it.
I already don't do cable, just online...is there hope for me?
Can I get a reality show about how I'm addicted to cooking reality shows?
Is there a producer listening?

Well if eating the toilet paper doesn't kill her, that fried, cheesy stuff she was eating will.

Ummmm, fried cheesy stuff...

I still can't get enough of the train wreck that is hoarders, I still watch every week. Maybe because my aunt is a hoarder and in August my cousin and I cleaned out 800 pds of stuff from her tiny apartment. I guess I watch looking for answers. The thing about my aunt is, she has no problems with her hoarding,only we do. She doesn't get why we think it is a danger to her.

I watched all the cooking shows too Merlin and I hardly cook. You can have Gordon, I'll take Tom Colecchio.

It sounds more like these people; like hoarders; are obsessive compulsive and need medication and therapy not a TV show.

Ms Luey said...

Like ardleigh said, many of these people clearly have underlying issues. Eating strange substances is called pica - sometimes it's a sign of nutrient deficiency, sometimes it has other root causes.

And there's one promo about a woman who describes herself as being addicted to exercise. That's not a "strange" addiction, that's a REAL addiction that is pretty common. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if the bodybuilding woman takes steroids. Not because of her physique, but because of her voice. Going to the gym a lot doesn't change the timbre of your voice, but steroids sure does.

None of these compulsions can compare to the one that makes you want to cut off your own body parts. Those are some of the most miserable people on earth.

You could NOT pay me to watch that show.

Patty said...

That commercial makes me want to vomit. So gross.

It's called No Reservations on the Travel Channel Enty. Anthony Bourdain is da man.

I had a suite mate in college who could not sleep unless she had a hair dryer on and under the covers with her! It freaked us out so much because we kept thinking that she was going to start a fire. We complained and complained, and she would not stop. Eventually she moved out and into an apartment where her and the hair dryer could be alone....
