I am addicted to the show Intervention. I watch it religiously every Sunday. It is perhaps the only religious thing I do on a Sunday (with the exception of the odd Church Signs Are Fun or Catholic Sunday post of course)! I guess part of the reason why I like it so much is because it makes me feel better about anything I’ve ever done in my lifetime. That sounds horrible, I know…But these people are seriously fucked up!! I also use the show as inspiration for scenes in my novel. It has helped me write a few crazy scenes!
Something that makes me a wee bit skeptical though, is the fact that the producers of the show have injected it with some type of addictive chemical, which is obviously releasing dopamine into my brain causing me to become addicted to the show. The whole point of Intervention is to help people with addiction… addiction of any kind; drugs, alcohol, gambling, eating whatever! So doesn’t it go against everything the show stands for to have such an addictive program that causes people (like me) to become addicted to it?! The good thing is that it’s only on once a week, otherwise I think Intervention would be airing shows about people who are addicted to Intervention!!
Here’s a link to the website, you should be able to check out a preview of this week’s episode (the one I just watched). Be careful though It’s addictive!
