Did You Know?


Three of Rick's recurring experts have been spun off to their own shows; Rick Dale with American Restoration, Danny Coker with Counting Cars (2012), and Sean Rich with Lords of War (2012). See more »


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 »

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 »

Painfully fake
27 June 2014 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I was interested at first, but as I learned that the show is fake and uses actors and items that are from museums, I was set back. Also REAL customers have widely reported that the main characters are usually not there and show up only when the show's been shot.

For me, I am interested to see old items and learn their history, but this show is an anticlimax fest where almost non of the items are real or valuable or even rare. And using items from museums and private collections, it's just pathetic.

I don't like their attitudes and the show is overall sort of vaguely interesting, but its fakeness makes it difficult to watch.
