Did You Know?


Rick said in his autobiography that the reason viewers at home see more sales than pawns on the show is because most of the people who pawn things at their shop don't want to be seen on TV. See more »


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.

[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 »

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.
