Did You Know?

Trivia

Originally, they had shot a pilot for HBO. Rick stated in his autobiography that he didn't like it because they "focused on the night window, and treated customers like they were animals in a zoo." He said that this approach was very misleading about their business. See more »

Goofs

When the man was selling the Cleveland Indians pennant, Rick said: "You know there was no major league baseball during World War 2." Every game was played, every world series was played during World War 2. 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

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 »

"Rip-offs"?
21 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No, these men are not trying to "rip off" anybody. Having a pro come in and give a value is not a "rip off". They have to (I would think) pay the people that come in to evaluate an item. No one is forcing these sellers to go through with any deal. The Pawn Stars are there to make a profit/living. They are not going to pay $100 for an item valued at $100. Get it? Next time you watch the show, pay attention. They state over and over that they can't make a profit by paying what the item is valued at. They have to store it, clean it, move it, tag it etc. all involving labor. Labor is not free. I am a mechanic and I don't give MY labor away. You Pawn Star haters, get a life. 8/11: Update: The show is staged, also. Not quite real. Of course it is better than that Hard Core Pawn junk. THAT show is 100% fake. Every customer is a screaming, raving maniac? Not likely. I tried watching that one a few times, but, the staged bickering between family members got old quick. Pawn Stars is a pleasure to watch. Hard Core is an insult to my inellagance...intellerjents...intel...SMARTS!
