Expand episodes of reality TV shows are sometimes welcome: more of good thing. But frequently, expanded episodes can feel padded and unnecessarily long. Competition results shows are the biggest offenders, but documentary-style shows can also struggle to find enough story to fill longer episodes. That was not the case with season 10 of Hoarders, which expanded to two-hour episodes and became an even better, more informative, more emotionally affecting show as a result. Each of the two-hour episodes focuses on a single storyausually, one person and their hoard. Most of its previous episodes had just one hour to cover attempts to help clean up two different hoards. In other words, hoarders usually have around 20 minutes to cover three or four days with one hoard. Now, it has 85 minutes to do same. That allows it to dive into the complexity of both stories and events of cleanup, but also into various aspects of hoarding as mental disorder, from denial to codependency, trauma to fear. Last week's episode, Patricia, explored the process of building trust that therapists and cleaners useabecause Patricia's daughters keep violating it. The adult daughters frustration was completely understandable, but yelling at their mother wasnt helping, and they were frustrated Cory Chalmers and Dr. Robin Zasio, who couldnt make progress with Patricia. The season finale, Three Amigos, focuses on two brothers and their close friend, all three of whom were Hoarders. The men, Raymond, Peter, and Donald, had hilarious and warm rapport. The love they had for each other led them to defend each other, but they were also fascinatingly in denial about their own situations while being able to identify problems. More time also means more well-develop stories and characters, and with really strong narrative arcs that do feel like scenes glued together by necessity. Were still watching people who are suffering, physically and mentally, but also who have agreed to get televised help, which in turn has demonstratively helped others. And the sense that this show can be exploitative fades when there is more complexity instead of brief flashes of persons life, which can almost reduce them to one-dimensional caricatures. Even with the seriousness of subject matter, show found moments of appropriate levity and wit. In the season finale, Matt Paxton arrives in slow-motion. Partys over, he say. The show also repeatedly makes it clear that its emergency intervention was only the start of a long process. So many of the updates were generally positive, with people agreeing to take advantage of therapy and support that the show offered after cleanup crews leave. And the intervention hoarders offer is never framed as anything more than emergency help to get them through crisis, and then on to the next step. So many stories end on high notesaand on-screen update text give more good news. Not all, of course; people struggle and decline help. But so many accepted therapy and continue to make progress after the show leave.
