"Strange" doesn't seem to adequately describe some of the addictive behaviors profiled on this series. "Dangerous," even "life-threatening," come much closer. Each half-hour episode features two adults who resort to extreme compulsions in an effort to soothe their emotional demons. Some of the addictions explored include sleeping with a turned-on blow dryer, eating bathroom cleanser, eating half a roll of toilet paper a day, extreme bodybuilding and thumb sucking.

The title of this documentary series doesn't beat around the bush, but if confusion still exists for some, the re-enactments contained within should seal the deal. The hourlong episodes tell stories of sexual escapades gone wrong, resulting in a medical mishap that leaves one participant needing emergency care. On the surface that's not a laughing matter, although some of the tales can be described as hilarious. Others, to be sure, are horrifying, but all of them are told by the actual couples who, in the heat of the moment, got themselves into a fix and needed a doctor to get them out.

Standing at least 6 feet 6 inches tall, the women profiled in this series face challenges not experienced by people of average size. Seemingly mundane tasks like loading a dishwasher or getting into a car can prove exceedingly difficult, not to mention having dating problems or being stared at while in public. Former pro volleyball player Colleen, 36, is ready to meet Mr. Right and settle down; Haleigh is young and talented -- she plays pro volleyball and has a master's degree, but what she really wants is for her boyfriend of two years to propose; L.A. resident and former wrestler Lindsay is on a quest to reunite with her father, whom she hasn't seen since he left when she was 11; and high-school student Nancy just wants to fit in and be "normal," a tall order for someone who is 6 feet 9.

"Hoarders" is an often painful look inside a disease that can bury its sufferer -- literally at times -- in its symptoms. Each hourlong episode profiles two people on the verge of a personal crisis, all caused by the fact that they are unable to part with even the tiniest possessions, and the cumulative effect becomes a mountain of junk and garbage overtaking their home or apartment. If they don't respond to professional help, the consequences sometimes involve eviction, kids being taken away, or even jail time.

"Extreme Cheapskates" profiles people who stop at nothing to spend nothing. From making reusable toilet paper and reusing dental floss to diving in garbage bins for gifts, these penny pinchers devise outrageous ways to cuts costs by any means necessary. In the half-hour episodes, viewers meet nifty-thrifty folks including Kay, who washes her clothes while she showers; Greg, who flushes his toilet just once a week; Ben, who makes his own toothpaste; Abdul, the "ultimate haggler"; and Vickie, a mother of five who refuses to spend money for a telephone, a television or even new clothes for her kids.

When it comes to dating on the island of Kodiak, Alaska, residents there often say, "The odds are good, but the goods can be a little odd." So six native Alaskan women -- fed up with scruffy men who are preoccupied with hunting and fishing -- cast their love line about 5,000 miles away in the sun-splashed and romance-filled city of Miami. This six-episode series documents how the women trade their rugged boots for high heels and fancy dates with firefighters, football players, personal trainers and cops. The cast includes Tina, who knows what she wants and how to get it; Jenny, who looks forward to ditching long socks and long johns for dresses and makeup; single mom Heather; Sabina, a free spirit who wants to be swept off her feet; quintessential Alaskan tomboy Lacy; and 22-year-old Haley, the youngest on the trip.
Rituals and customs accepted in one culture may be thought of as downright bizarre in another. "Taboo" delves into that dichotomy, taking viewers across cultural borders to explore traditional beliefs and deliberate lifestyle choices, ranging from body modification and gender decisions to nudity and spiritual quests that test the limits of the human body.
