Storage Wars Remix -- A Little Video I Found That I Hope You'll Enjoy

Well, I've been trying to find the commercial for Storage Wars' upcoming season three, that E.P. will allow me to embed, without success.  It's on-line, but not in dailymotion or youtube.  I think it's great, so, hopefully, after the season begins airing, I'll be able to find it and add it here.  'Course, I suspect that most people who read this will already be converted.

I'm adding this bit on June 29, 2012.  I finally found the trailer on Youtube.  Here it is:

I watch the episodes over and over, (almost) every chance I get.  I'm sure it doesn't represent the way real storage locker auctions go.  Although it's probably how he actually conducts his auctions, I reckon Dan Dodson's ego is stroked just a bit from being filmed, enticing (perhaps?) a little extra panache?  And there's no soundtrack to real auctions either, is there?  The bids get way too high; I've heard the cast say as much. 

At first, before I watched the show, I couldn't understand the appeal of bidding on the contents of abandoned storage lockers.  Most of the fun of watching this, I've discovered, is following the cast members, the relationships they forge and hostilities they apparently have, as much as seeing what they find.  Everyone does seem to get bogged down in their images / character traits / personalities, though, which make them all a bit static.  It isn't a program that revolved around character development, though.  I like sharing the enjoyment when these people find cool stuff, and their disappointments when a locker bombs.

Anyway, I started this by talking about the Season Three trailer.  Apparently, it's going to be playing in movie theatres too.  Way cool!  That's what you get for being a network's #1 show!  If anyone does find a embed code for the trailer, please let me know.  I'd love to share it here.

In the meantime, here's a video of the cast that's kind of cool and I hope fellow Storage Wars fans will enjoy.  YUUP!!

The trailer was cool but im not sure if you get the reality behind storage wars. You make it sound like a sitcom when its reality tv. Yes this is how storage wars go. The only difference is they chose 5 people to be the center of the show instead of just showing you the entire auction cause that would be long, boring and really hard to edit. All of what they show you are pretty much edited versions of what really happened. There are 1000 other times where none of them make anything but that would be boring to watch. <br />
<br />
What really happens is these 5 people go to the same auctions and 1 out of every 10th time they will find maybe one item of value, and when i say value i mean like 100 bucks. The issue with shows like these is they make you think you can go to a storage auction and make a **** ton of money almost every time if not every other time which is completely 100% false.

I appreciate your feedback. I'm not under any illusions -- this is work, like anything else, and you have to be passionate about it to stick with it. I'm not at all fooled into thinking someone can go to a storage auction and make it big. I know these people hit way more auctions than we ever see. And, yes, the show goes through a lot of snip-snips before it goes to air.

At the same time, there's no point watching the show if I can't enjoy it. This trailer shows the Storage Wars cast taking things to the nth degree. Essentially (I think), they're poking fun at themselves. These aren't five soldiers of fortune, they're real people doing their best to make a living. And the storage auctions they attend is only a part of who they really are, but it's the (highly edited) part we see on T.V. It's also entertainment. We wouldn't watch it if it wasn't, would we?

Anyway, this could become a long, drawn-out discussion, but I'd rather it not. I enjoy the show, like the five stars, and appreciate the effort they make going the extra miles to draw an audience and keep us coming back.
