A show that all of us can relate to it brings back hoarding and storing collecting memories!
8 November 2012 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This new Syfy original series "Collection Intervention" brings back memories and special moments for all of us. As most like me have collected and saved our favorite things over the years that have dealt with pop culture and entertainment memorabilia. I for one as a kid was the biggest lover and collector of action figures especially Kenner's "Star Wars" and "Super Powers" action figures and I even had some "Mego" gems, In fact I still own these valuables even today. As I got older my collecting taste grew into thousands of DVD movies, books, and magazines mostly men's one's like "Playboy", "Esquire", "Maxim" and some graphic "Batman" novels along with political and biography books. My one outdated save is cases of VHS blank recored tapes that feature thousands of my favorite movies and shows some real screen saving moments.

We all take collections to the extreme and with this show it features people who have to downsize their collections because it's taken over their life they simply have no room or storage spaces. I remember the guy with over 30,000 comic books and the young man with rooms full of action figure collections and the Mom with 20,000 Barbie dolls Wow! It's tough for these people to give it away because of their special attachment memories from childhood still much of this is valuable where they can sell and make money while downsizing their collections! Now enter the attractive and elegant former head of special collections of Christie's Elyse Luray as this smart educated lady helps each over-sized collector come to terms with getting rid of his or her gems. It's tough to do but it's an enjoyable and rewarding journey for each viewer to watch as they see a person become relieved when breaking away from an attached memory of culture while earning a piece of mind and economic gain!
