TLC is running another "Lottery changed my life marathon" this Sun. Aug 19. at 2 p.m. if anyone cares to watch, I think Ive seen them all....BTW what are some of your favorites if you ever seen the show? Her's a couple of mine....

 

                                          1. Streetsweeper millionaires--The streesweepers who won and their coworkers who didnt play tried to sue for a portion of the win.

                                                                                      They lost and are miserable cause the one guy still works there and they have to look at his face

                                                                                      everyday....LOL

                                          2. Most eligible bachleor millionaire---The old guy who won a million dollars and his stupid grown son spending his money and

                                                                                                 talking like he's educated. Then he bought a nw camaro ss and almost wrexked b4 he got  off

                                                                                                the lot. LOL

 

Anyways those are a couple that I like....What are some of yours???

      Did it say if there were new shows ?

      I have most if not all on my DVR.

      Its been set to record all episodes, but it recognizes any already recorded,

      then does not record it again.

      Don't have a favorite, wanna see em all,

      I don't think they makin any new ones, hard enough for someone to win,

      then from the small group of winners, they have to convince the winners to come on the show,

      I just don't want that kind of attention.

          There's a documentary out there called "millions a lottery story" that tells the life of a few lottery winners years after they won. It takes a difefrent approach

          than the show LCMY, it's more of a focus on them as people,  than what they bough with there moneyt.

          The people featured in the documentary are a few of the group of lunch room ladies from Minnesota, and some old time lottery winners Curtis Sharp and Loius Eisenberg.  It's somewhat slow, but enjoyable.

           

          BTW, if this is common knowledge on this board, forgive me.

                  My favorite one is the guy who was a crack head before his windfall, but fortune didn't fare him well. He resorted back to that low life activity after his riches became reality, and at the end he bombed. His obvious and inevitable demise shortly followed. What a waste of money. What was the name of the episode? i believe he sold a lot of his art or something to get out of debt.

                      are you talking about David Lee Edwards, the ponytail guy ?

                            I save them as a type of lottery 101 class, LOL

                             did't know that they can deteriorate by being saved long term.

                            maybe I should XFR to DVD ?

                              Thanx for the info, I too, think I have seen them all and will watch every repeat they play.  Love to dream what it would be like to win and that can begin with tonights PB. 

                              The Morrisons from New York was one of my favorites.  If I recall correctly they used to run a shelter, after the win the state said they owed all kinds of money, which turned out to be untrue.  People thought since they won the money from the win, just pay it and they refused.   I agree, not guilty, they dont owe the money and fight to clear their name.

                              My other favorite is Brad Duke from Idaho who donates to charities and is investing to try to increase his holdings!

                              I would want to claim the win anonymously and if not possible, collect and get out of the state or country for a while.  And although I love to watch the shows I would never be on one!  Maybe that is why there are no new shows coming out?

                              Good Luck to all entered into Powerball !
