Goofs

A lady brings in an allegedly medieval axe, claiming it might be from Asia. Rick refutes her by telling "No, no, it's more likely from India or Middle East". Both India and the Middle East ARE in Asia. 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 »

India IS in Asia, you bald-headed dope!
4 October 2011 | by (Not Preston, thankfully) – See all my reviews

This show has been annoying me for some time. Yes, I know I'm supposed to change the channel if I don't like something, but everybody's got his pet hate and this is a show I like to hate.

Basically a bunch of overweight thugs running an antique shop trying to rip off their clients. The clients by all means deserve being ripped off, majority of them being so obviously dim. This is not what annoys me, this is what actually sometimes makes it interesting to watch.

What does annoy the hell out of me is the fact that this show is aired on History Channel. History Channel not so long ago used to be about history. Nowadays it's littered with fake-reality shows such as "Ice Road Truckers" and "Ax Men" or sensationalistic crap like "Conspiracy?" and "UFO Hunters". And they still have the audacity to market these shows as "history being made every day". Oh, hilarity! None of these shows has anything to do with history! If the problem is lack of audience for true history documentaries, then I'd rather they close the channel down than to continue with this nonsense. Besides, majority of these reality shows are so bad (uninformative, boring or misleading) that the likes of NGC and Discovery wouldn't even touch them.

Anyway, back to "Pawn Stars". I was trying to find the angle from which to crap on this piece of entertainment. I was going to say it's boring. It isn't. I was going to say it's more style than substance. It is, indeed, but so are plenty of other shows. I was going to say it doesn't belong to History Channel. Nothing new.

Luckily, the middle Harrison, the bald headed guy, helped me here by referring to a piece of antiquity that was brought into the store: "it's not from Asia, it's more likely from India". I do hope he reads this article, or at least its title. That amount of ignorance indeed prompts this viewer to change the proverbial channel.
