One thing I really love about Twitter is the way it can turn television watching into a communal experience, especially for those of us who tend to be watching alone. I can’t do it if I’m really invested in a drama, but if I’m only mildly interested, Twitter sharing can boost my interest, and if it’s a reality show like A&E’s “Hoarders,” it can become almost a transcendent experience.
Now I differ from most of my Twitter brethren insofar as my first response to the hoarders on Hoarders is pure heartbreak. I feel so bad for these people, even when they are at their most revolting and obnoxious. I can’t help myself. I’ve had too many years of dealing with crazy people, and I’m more or less inured to it.
Here’s a clip for your enjoyment. It involves poo. You’re welcome.
Nah, you know what? Here’s Rush Limbaugh on an episode of Hearts Afire from 1994 instead. Find your own poo videos!
