I wrote to this person to ask for some details... mainly about the light the collector will be portrayed in. I also talked a little about the reasons many of us collect, and how (while some folk collect due to mental illness or addictive personality traits) that many of us do so because of the warm memories we have of our childhood collections. I'm not interested in appearing on the show, and am in Canada (so don't think they'd be interested in me anyway) which is why I figure I might be a good one to ask the questions. I'll definitely report back with whatever I hear.
But I suspect the collectors aren't shown in a positive light.
