Enjoyable reality show, but not as good as another history channel show "Pawn Stars"., 20 December 2010
Author: Aaron1375

This one usually follows the show "Pawn Stars" on the history channel and it, like that show, is entertaining. It is not quite up to that show though as it is at times a bit difficult to watch. The two lead guys are okay, but just not as likable and entertaining as the leads of "Pawn Stars". However, they are not bad. Part of the problem with the show is that it gets very awkward, especially if they basically come to a house unannounced. Still, on some shows the two really hit some interesting places that have a bunch of really cool things. One of my favorite episodes is one where they go to this old amusement park this dude is trying to restore and they go through the fun house. That place looked so cool, I would love to be able to go into something like that. Then they usually go through a list of things they bought and how much they expect to get for it or how much they sold it for. Very cool what some people will pay top dollar for. Though in the end most of the stuff looks to be junk to me. I just do not understand why anyone would want some of the stuff they buy, but that is why they are collectors and resellers and I am not.
