Each 60-minute episode of Hoarders is a fascinating look inside the lives of people whose inability to part with their belongings is so out of control that they are on the verge of a personal crisis. Whether they’re facing eviction, the loss of their children, jail time, or divorce, these compulsive hoarders are desperately in need of help. In fly-on-the-wall style, A&E is there to document the drama as experts work to put each on the road to recovery. But cleaning is just the first step, and healing is not guaranteed. For some, throwing away even the tiniest possession — a sponge, a button, an empty box — is so painful that they won’t be able to complete the cleaning process . . . no matter the consequences. For others, professional help and an organizer’s guidance give them the strength to recover. At the end of each episode, find out who has been able to keep their hoarding behavior at bay and who, despite help, is still lost inside this painful disease.
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoAugustine||14 years ago Jason was removed from his mother Augustine's home by Child Protective Services because of her hoarding. She was never able to clean up enough to have him return. Now, as an adult living on the other side of the country, he is filled with shame and resentment, but unable to turn his back on her. Her hoarding has become so severe that she has lived without water, gas, heat or appliances for the last four years--bathing only once a week at her sister's house. Complaints from neighbors have instigated a court ordered clean-up and she is now facing fines and the threat of jail time. We follow Jason as he tries one last time to rescue his mother from the filth he escaped from years ago.||44:30||$1.99||View in iTunes|

GREAT SHOW; False Advertising
I love this show; it's really been an amazing and therapeutic influence in my life, but I must protest the promotion of "Each 60 minute episode of Hoarders..." as it is obvious to even those laypersons outside of entertainment that the show has a maximum duration of 45 minutes. Where are my missing fifteen minutes, A&E?
Hoarders: power towers
I love the series. It amazes me how their mind works - doh - does not work. I find it fascinating to see how loss and depression can lead to hoarding, and the program often brings tears to my eyes. It has brought a change in my life. I am not a hoarder but this show made me see how it can all go to hoarding so I am now attacking the "stuff" in my house. What also hits me hard is the fact that the hoarder has so much power over everything in his or her environment. Truly a sad, sad disorder. I hope that all the shows will become available in itunes.
Hoarders: Season 2
Love this show! Alot better than the first season, which was equally as addicting. The show is only 45 minutes long because the commercials are REMOVED. Yes, when we watch TV on the television and were watching an hour long show, we get 15 minutes worth of commercials. Common sense people
