I love fans. So when I heard that TLC was starting a new series called “My Crazy Obsession” as an extension of their hit special “My Collection Obsession” I knew I had to watch. I was given a screener for the premier episode that airs tonight (Wednesday, March 7 at 10 PM ET/PT).
This eight-part series will take viewers on a journey behind the scenes of some people’s homes that are dedicated to their owners’ obsession with objects, people or lifestyles.
The first episode starts with a couple that boasts a collection of over 5,000 Cabbage Patch Kids. With their favorite doll Kevin by their side, the couple plans play dates and parties to celebrate their always-expanding collection with other Cabbage Patch fans. This story is followed by a woman who is completely obsessed with the color pink. From a pink television to a pink dog, the show will reveal the time, money and effort required to fulfill and maintain these uncommon passions.
I really enjoyed the first episode. The stories are told in documentary style and, despite the oddness of the featured obsessions, they’re told with love. It is a show that celebrates the quirky people and I loved watching that.
