Ok, so I'm an L.A. native, which makes me an anomaly in a city known for its nomadic tendencies. But it does qualify me as an observer of what comes and goes in this town that thinks of itself as a trendsetter.
I can no longer stand to watch a program that -- while brilliantly produced and written with respect to entertainment value -- perpetuates a horrible stereotype about women: that they are hysterical, unhinged and conniving.
Am I watching Hoarders the same way certain people watch NASCAR? Just as they wait for a fiery crash, am I hoping for the discovery of a mummified animal? Simply put, does watching a Hoarders marathon make me a bad person?
