Did You Know?

Trivia

Although Rick expressed great interest in having the renovated barber chair for his personal collection, it is actually on display in the shop (albeit with a "do not sit in or touch" sign attached). See more »

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

[new opening narration, beginning 30 May 2013]
Himself - 'The Spotter': At my shop, family comes first, and money comes second, depending on who ya ask. But the best part: You never know what's gonna come through that door. This is "Pawn Stars."

Crazy Credits

Seasons from 2009-2013 feature the "original" intro sequence, which shows members of the Harrison family around the shop, showing off and handling a number of items the shop carries (including Confederate money.) This intro is noteworthy in that it does not at all feature Chumlee (as it is unlikely the crew knew how popular he would become at the time.) Starting mid 2013, a new intro sequence began airing, with an instrumental by Lynyrd Skynyrd serving as the theme music. It features the 4 main cast members (including Chumlee) walking down a Vegas street together, and ends with them standing on the Pawn Shop roof. See more »

Very interesting and entertaining show
1 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have just recently gotten into Pawn Stars and I find it to be a great mix of entertainment and history lessons. The main draw for me is the simple give and take that goes on between the Pawn Store operators and the people who bring items in looking to make quick money. Clearly the biggest draw for this show is Rick, the pawn store owner. Although his dad (the old man) and his son (big hoss) are big parts of the show, it is Rick who makes this show interesting and worthwhile. I don't think that Hollywood could have scripted someone who could make a pawn store owner a truly likable and complex individual. Rick manages to show interest and respect to every person who brings in something for sale while managing to explain his position in understandable terms. The bottom line is that a pawn shop is a place for people in need of quick cash to sell just about anything, just at bargain basement prices. If someone wants to get maximum money for their goods they would have to do market research, team up with a reputable auction house, or go on ebay and roll the dice that someone may make a high enough bid. Otherwise, you can go for the easy money of a pawn shop (albeit much less money.)

A couple of final notes about the characters on the show, as I stated earlier Rick is far and away the star of the show and he is really what makes it watchable. His father doesn't contribute a whole lot other than some standard old man talk. His son (Big Hoss) is pretty much a waste of space and contributes nothing to the show unless you like to watch a very (very) large person walking around in Ed Hardy jeans acting like some kind of tough guy. He is a very simple person, clearly having missed many of the complexities of human nature possessed by his father. Finally, Chumlee is one of the most enjoyable characters ever to grace television, the large man-child with a good heart and a simple mind. All in all I would definitely recommend watching this show to anyone.
