Did You Know?

Trivia

According to Corey, Chumlee was not supposed to be a featured character on the series, but they decided to drop him into a couple of scenes, and the producers loved it. See more »

Goofs

Episodes/segments of episodes/etc. are clearly filmed out of order. A good example of this is the seller with the Las Vegas Club poker chip getting the Rat Pack statues - yet these statues can be seen on display in the background in later episodes. Likewise, on a more recent episode, the green Jim Morrison painting by Denny Dent is alternately present/not present between segments, with a different painting being there when it is gone.

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

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 »

The first few seasons were entertaining but the show has gone downhill since.
8 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first few seasons of this show weren't bad. The majority of the show revolved around the items brought into the shop. Sure, there were some annoying side-scripts involving the different cast members (e.g. Chumlee acting foolish or the old man falling asleep) but it wasn't the focus and thus didn't detract from the show too much.

Fast forward to the last year or two. The show has devolved into something borderline unwatchable. The "annoying side-scrips" are now the focus of the show. The acting is so incredibly obvious that it makes you feel foolish for even watching.

I'm not sure why the folks at the History channel feel the need to throw in all this scripted garbage. The original formula (the one that made the show so popular in the first place) allowed the show to practically write itself.

Anyway, if you're just getting into the show, my recommendation would be to check out all the older episodes. There are a lot of really cool items and facts with only a limited amount of nonsense.
