Ready to get m' clean on....

New season of Hoarders starts tomorrow on A&E, and as a warm-up, there's a marathon. Tonight, it's TLC's Hoarders: Buried Alive. I'll be watching (as I work on finishing an afghan).

What's with my fascination with the hoarding shows?

Like watching Intervention, it's the how and why that makes these shows so interesting for me. How and why does somebody get into that situation?

There's another reason I watch - inspiration. Nothing like seeing horrendous squalor to make me want to clean my house. And judging by the posts on the boards at Television Without Pity, I'm certainly not alone.

I can relate. Every time I catch How Clean Is Your House on BBC America, I have this overwhelming urge to run and clean the toilet, even if it's already been cleaned.
