With the new season premiering last night, I wanted to do a poll to see which episode you thought was the best so far, but I can't seem to find the link for Polls.

Anyway in my opinion nobody has played the role of "whacked-out addict" better than "Cristy" the stripper addicted to crystal meth, from season 2. Im hoping they do a follow up on her in the future.

Last nights episode was pretty good i thought. Amazing that someone can eat a few handfuls of celery and half an apple/day and still do a million jumping jacks when they first wake up.

(sorry, shoulda put this in misc lounge)

I watched the one last night too. I didnt know you could be that skinny and still be alive. you could tell she could hardly function though. She would talk sooo slooow.

I think I know the one you mean. The girl who thought she was Jesus or something? She was pretty crazy.

I liked the alocholic mom who drank mouth wash... and also the alocholic mom who drank mini vodka bottles. I guess I like the alcoholics.

Ya Cristy did think she was jesus. She also threw a bowl of food across the room and then tried to fight her sister who brought her the food.

Ya Id have to agree with you about the alcoholics...after Cristy the alcoholics are the most entertaining.

Yes PF. You must see Emily. What enhances the severity of the episode is that Emily is an identical twin...so you can see what she's supposed to look like healthy.

Oh and she cant stand the site of her twin, which leads me to think thats a big part of the reason she is anorexic...to separate herself, and steal some attention away from her twin.

3.5 star episode IMO

The lady who drank the mini vodka bottles was a highlight. Did she think she didn't have a problem because she drank little bottles? I kept thinking to myself, "lady, go buy a big ass bottle and swig it why don't you".

Good question. Kinda like " why are you writing in a thread where the topic is people you would go out of your way to not have to talk to in real life when there are 500 other threads? "

Because I get to vocally hate them without having to see or hear any of them. Or you.

Just out of curiosity...have there ever been any Intervention episodes that deal with Marijuana ruining somebody's life or family?

Ive seen a lot of episodes featuring alcohol, but havent seen one yet on Weed. Have I missed this episode, or does it even exist?

12-19-2007, 09:11 AM
I've never seen weed being the problem. I've seen it being used in conjuction to other things (like they're addicted to everything and they'll do whatever they can get their hands on) but weed's never been the sole issue.

the only episode i've seen was the one where a local party scene guy was on, "dr. doom". all the girls avoid him. the first thing he ever said to me was "you smell nice, do you have a myspace?"

it was sad watching him on tv. of course parts were funny, i mean he's not my friend at all, but it was still sad seeing that even weird creepy guy at the rave has issues he can't get past.

the funniest part though is when his neighbor asks him for like 10 minutes to turn down the volume and he argues with her about it. then at the end of the conversation he says something like "let me know if the volume becomes a problem" and the girl just sighs and says "THAT'S WHAT WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO SAY"!!!

also, when they tried to get him to rehab, he said he couldn't go because it conflicted with coachella :rofl

exactly, he had just lost all touch with reality. he NEVER gets booked out here, EVER. and yet he kept talking about his mad dj skills. the only time he ever played was when he forced himself on the decks at a show and the dj hit him.

and doing too much of anything, even ecstacy/shrooms/lsd, will fuck with your head. he had also done meth at some point which had an affect i'm sure.

I love this show. My boyfriend and I also like to watch it while taking massive bong swats. Dr.Doom was a fave, I loved how he was in his 30s and these teenagers were at his house smoking weed and eating his mushrooms. It was pretty sad. The favorite though, has to be the guy who cut trees. Remember the one who insisted he could make millions off a certain tree bark. He'd get methed out and go cut down trees for hours on end. There were tons of cut up trees in his house and his family was just like, fuuuuuck, more fucking trees, stupid meth head! The show has made me cry a few times, alcoholics are the saddest ones with their rape and abuse issues. Meth heads are much more amusing, they win.

Hey Nicole, where'd your boyfriend disappear to? He popped into the Picture thread real quick to try to assert himself as the expert chemist you played him up to be, but made a fucking mess of it and then never showed up to try to undo the damage of his embarassing entrance.

I was really disappointed. I wanted the pharmacy tech to teach me a thing or two with his Chem Minor. Get him back into the drug thread so he can get properly reamed some more.

Smooches. =)

you could tell that that guy was one of the few who could beat his addiction pretty early on in the show, there was just something about him that made me think that. the fact that it was crack as opposed to heroin or speed also helped. his arrogance was obnoxious, though. i loved when he walked out of the intervention and the counselor was talking to him and said "you're full of shit" as he laughed in regards to him liking his life the way it was.
