TV's new low
10 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

This show is pop culture's bottomless pit. For a time, it looked like "reality" could go no lower than fattest homeless people, worst hoarders, and most stupid coupon abusers. Then they surged ahead with jughead repo tow truck operators and, at the bottom of the barrel, cajun swamp scavengers.

Then they looked under the barrel and found the city below all other cities, Detroit, and discovered "Hardcore Pawn" and the family at the very end of civilization, the Gold family.

Mankind cannot know the depths of humanity until watching the crushingly insensitive, egocentric Les Gold (in his mind there's no L in his last name) and his retards, Seth and Ashley, who work doggedly to deserve their mutual abhorrence.

Ashley, the worst bitch of all time? has young children in the real world that she is allowed to raise to be like her. Don't think about that, or this farce becomes sad. Just marvel at the people who patronize this ghetto racket, mostly amateurs trying to cheat and being cheated by pros.
