Unlike good reality TV it starts out very interesting and goes downhill.
2 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first episode I saw I found endearing in a black and white kind of way. I never felt the addicts were in any real danger, probably because it was being stated in such an over the top way that I couldn't relate. The statements like all addicted people will end up dead unless they get treatment. Well yes, we will all die, and there is no treatment for it, sadly. But what does that statement mean? No one has a directory of all addicts. The only ones we notice are the ones that are in desperate need of help, likely. I agree that an addict can die, depending on circumstances and should receive treatment. Most people already do; So no need to treat us all like we are in the middle school gym being lectured on the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Surely a human being in psychological peril is more intricate then a few pat phrases.

I would be very interested if they showed cases of different nature, not just ones where the poor addict is tearfully begging everyones forgiveness when they are told that they don't shine anymore, and are mysteriously ruining the entire economy of the nation by purchasing a relatively cheap substance.

I don't think this show's concept is bad at all. But I want something that is more realistic and less predictable. At least in the fellow reality show "Dog the bounty hunter" where you can tell who the bounty is because they wear black leather and gloves with no fingers even if they are just convicted of traffic violation, you have a charismatic host. No such luck here.
