Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
Those are good points Critical. Especially about CPS. And of course hoarders must be masters at all types of procrastination!
There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats. A. Schweitzer
In case you hadn't heard:
The show is back .... sort of.
They've changed the name by adding "Family Secrets" to the title and the will be going "live" for parts of the show.
New season (an abbreviated one as I understand it) starts on May 28th at 9PM on Lifetime.

Loved the new guy, Dr. Toln. Finally, we have someone who doesn't congratulate a hoarder for throwing out a dirty diaper...these hoarders are mentally ill. So sad most didn't get help until much later in life. So sad, so very sad.

It was fascinating to see the regulars come back. They've all aged and gained a little weight, which makes me like them more. I get the sense they're being coached more by producers than in the original show, however. That's a shame because the show's strength -- besides all the poop -- was that it was more like a documentary than a reality show.
"Totalitarianism demands, in fact, the continuous alteration of the past, and in the long run probably demands a disbelief in the very existence of objective truth." — George Orwell
I liked seeing them again, too. I watched bits of the new shows recently - the woman who was feeding the horde of mice living in her house? Ugh. Come on, now. They're not pets.
It was me. I let the dogs out.
I hate to like this show, but it is so unbelievably odd that it is mesmerizing. I certainly feel compassion for these damaged folks, but to see the success of most of them with the interventions is so rewarding! Bring it on!
