From the bold to the bizarre, from the freaky to the fun – every society has an obsession. Some are modern while others have existed for centuries. Join happy-go-lucky host Jason Godfrey in this documentary series as he uncovers the obsessive behaviours that make the Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Koreans and Filipinos who they are and learns how one society’s obsession can become the new normal. From exploring Korea’s extreme plastic surgery reality shows to China’s internet addiction boot camps, this series reveals just how crazy people can be and how society fuels these obsessions.
