    Anyone watched this?

    The CD collector is off the scale. We are nothing by comparison.

    Spending £150 a day buying CDs when they are vinyl records out there. Madness. He also had six flats to store them in and a team of four employed to look after them. Which is even madder.

          It is now - see Agnes' post above.

          I haven't seen this episode - but have seen the first one with the royal collector lady -

            The teddy bear guy was remarkably calm as he parted with his beloved bears at the auction.

            My favourite were the couple obsessed with 50's and 60's design. The house, the collections, the attention to detail. Loved it.

              Jim, the computer collector and professor. I found it rather inspiring...

                  Had to have a look. Watched the Teddy bears, CD man, mad drum collector episode. The guy with the cds seemed to be helplessly drowning in a sea of......nothingness really. As noted previously, he doesn't play them, he listens to the radio. Kind of felt sorry for him as he had somehow reinvented himself as this eccentric collector of cds, and that was who he was now, and it seemed as though that was what was keeping him going. His staff seemed happy to take his money while sneering sideways at him. I'm sure he's happy on some level, but I found myself feeling a bit sad by the end of it.

                    Just caught the first episode with this couple in it. Fantastic collection, and WHAT a house to display it in! I wonder how many architects can say they matched the design and colour scheme of their house to a juke box?

                    On to episode two....

                      I felt a little sorry for the CD guy as well. it seems as though it wasn't the cds he wanted, he just liked to shop online. he wanted something to search for and CDs were the thing he settled on. being so many the collection will never be finished.

                        Wow just seen the cd collector. Quite amazing although I would want to listen to them. I'm just wondering how much more reasonable it would seem if he has records
