TabooSeason 9 Episode 5 - Extreme Collectors
Throughout history, people have expressed their passions and their personalities through their collections. But some collectors' passions cross the line into obsession. In London, Viktor Wynd fills his home with eccentric arrays of objects ranging from tiny human baby skeletons to shrunken heads. Calling them his children, Viktor is known to kiss them affectionately and converse with them. In the Philippines, Herbert Chavez is the self-proclaimed Filipino Superman, a longtime collector of Superman paraphernalia who, in the last 15 years, has undergone a series of cosmetic surgeries to resemble his superhero. Utah resident Jim Dix has turned his home into a Noah's Ark with 550 animals living in his house and yard. For Jim, his venomous snakes, deadly spiders, coyotes, toads and alligators are his children, but the Utah Department of Transportation is putting a freeway through his neighborhood, forcing him to move. Will Jim find a new home for his very large family?
