Did You Know?

Trivia

Count's Kustoms, one of the auto repair facilities on the show, once featured a banner on the wall promoting an establishment called "Feelgood's." Feelgood's was a bar owned by Vince Neil, lead singer for classic metal band Motley Crue. The name referenced their classic song/album, Dr. Feelgood. However, Danny "The Count" Koker, the owner of Count's Kustoms, has since become the full owner of that establishment and changed the name to "Count's Vamp'd." See more »

Goofs

When a man was selling some antique Red Comet Fire Grenades, Rick mistook the clear liquid enclosed in the glass bulbs as water but it's really carbon tetrachloride which is very toxic but far more effective for putting out fires. See more »

Quotes

[Opening narration]
Himself - 'The Spotter': I'm Rick Harrison, and this is my pawn shop. I work here with my old man and my son, "Big Hoss." Everything in here has a story and a price. One thing I've learned after 21 years - you never know what is gonna come through that door.

Crazy Credits

Early episodes "play it straight" in the "this time on Pawn Stars" segments at the beginning of the show, showing what will be sold/traded/etc. on the show. However, in more recent seasons, this has become more of a "joke" segment, and features outtakes or funny scenes that aren't in the actual respective segments (cars not starting, comical dialogue, things going wrong, etc.) See more »

It's history and educational!
24 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Love it! Basically, it's entertaining, but my family always learns something. Regarding the comments about motive, everyone and anyone on the show is in it for a buck, including those selling items. As for what's on the show and it being hand-picked. Of course it is. No, we don't want to see the everyday stuff. It's the History Channel for goodness sake. We want to learn, to see unique items -- items we might not otherwise know about or experience. Loved the stamp as currency. Who knew!! That's what it's all about. The audience wants to soak up history! Just enjoy the show for what it is. Love all the characters, too, esp. Chum and Rick. If I ever make it to Vegas, the pawn shop is on my list of must-sees! A
