Fathers and sons bond all sorts of different ways. Some fish. Some play basketball. Others let piles of trash pile up all over their homes. Aw, isn’t that sweet? In this week’s episode of “Hoarding: Buried Alive (Wed. Feb. 12 at 9:00 p.m. ET on TLC), Jason and Joe prove that the family that hoards together faces jail together. Really, why haven’t we seen these guys in a heartwarming Lifetime movie?
Their home-which has no functional bedroom or usable kitchen, by the way-is packed to the ceiling with items the pair has relentlessly accumulated over the past decade. Guess what? The outside of the home isn”t much better. Now, John faces jail time for his compulsions, while Joe could lose his newborn son to child protective services if they don”t clean up their mess. In this clip, it seems they really don’t care all that much. Jail, shmail, baby, smaby. They’ve got stacks of perfectly good VCRs, people!
Do you watch “Hoarding: Buried Alive”? And if you do, does it make you feel better about your home or worse?
