Goofs

When the seller with the life-size red Power Ranger was in the shop, Corey and Chum were quizzing each other about the show, and claim that the original Red Ranger's name was Jason. While what they said was accurate, this figure does NOT depict the original Red Ranger, but one from a later series. 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 »

Maybe not 'reality', strictly speaking, but entertaining
15 February 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I really enjoy this show. Oh, it's not perfect... sometimes I really have to clamp my teeth together hard when I hear them pronounce the word "beaucoup" yet again as "boo-coo"... and some of the staged stuff is pretty silly and goes on too long. But it's interesting to watch what comes into the shop and how they respond to it.

I strongly disagree with those who claim the shop is a rip-off and unfair to the sellers... on several occasions Rick has refused to give a seller what he originally asked for, insisting rather on getting an expert to come in and look at it and prove that it's worth far more than the seller thinks, resulting in a much bigger pay-off to the seller. How is that a 'rip-off'? If Rick kept his mouth shut and bought the item for peanuts, then resold it at an astronomical profit, THAT would be ripping people off.

Once in a while I learn something... for instance, that it's actually more profitable in many cases to buy one very expensive item for re-sale than to buy a collection of smaller, less expensive items and have to go through all the hassle of cataloging them, researching them, deciding whether to sell them as a collection or piecemeal to complete other peoples' collections, etc. That's the kind of thing a businessman has to consider when he's buying items, and Rick seems to know what he's doing.

A fun show and a good way to fill up an evening now and then.
