Big Brother is Watching You Watch A&E

I watched the season premiere of Hoarders last night. Like Winston Smith in 1984, Hoarders is my "Two Minutes Hate": an ecstasy of vindictiveness, easily transferred from one subject to another.

Do you ever watch a show to enjoy the experience of hating the subjects of the show?

Not really.

I'm not comfortable "hating" someone when I know so little about them, especially knowing that what I am seeing of them from a TV show has been manipulated to display that person's least sympathetic side.

HAHA Yes. Hating your family is acceptable.
