I see "Pawn Stars" few times, not like it much, Hi8story Channel; waste much time, e.g. "Ancient Aliens" is childish hoax.
I'm with you... ( surprise )... This is the 3rd or 4th spinoff from the original show ...They all suck ! More and more "reality" shows on History and Discovery... They're cheap to make and boring as hell.... It reflects ( sorry to say ) the mentality of the targeted viewing audience. It's really getting hard to find a decent Documentary style program and if you find one it's the 12th re-run this month !!!
I know, it's more about money than history and I do remember when the history channel had some good shows, looked forward to watching them. If you want to watch the better shows you need to subscribe to premium channels because there's another History Channel that offers them. It is all about the money.
I knew a lady in a smaller town in Oklahoma who's husband had a pawn shop, they were buying and keeping hand tools that didn't require electricity in case the $h!t hits the fan and their extended family needs to live off-grid for awhile. Maybe it's different in small towns where you have a reputation to uphold, I don't know. She didn't seem sleezy at all.
taking advantage of a widow, shame on them
Patti... I have them all and it's the same crap.... If it's southern and redneck hillbilly there's gonna be about 8 -10 shows , all phony as hell !
I think redneck and southern (and Amish) themes make good fodder for reality shows, and a poor image of the United States for the rest of the world.
