This is one of those series that people will not generally seek out to
watch without prior knowledge. But once it is seen, you will end up
watching the whole episode, entertained and wanting more.
Storage Wars has hit all the winning ingredients to provide an all rounded, entertaining reality show that can be watched by almost anyone. The uniqueness comes from the twist of people benefiting directly from the losses of others, those who are having their storage space sold at auction!
The viewer is given insight into a unique new world of buying and selling coupled with a colourful bunch of characters, ranging from genuine treasure hunters to those trying to fill their bric a brac shops just to make a profit.
The characters are well portrayed and likable, while the interviewing, relationships, researching and auctions are well balanced, providing for a good watch. I have taken a real liking to this series and found myself wanting to go to one of these auctions!

I know for a fact that SW is full of crap, I went to a few auctions and over heard Barry talking to a camera person last month, Barry is not a collector at all he doesn't even buy the storage units the producers pay it for him, he is just a friend of the producer tom beers, I was so upset to hear this, I stayed after the auction and they staged the 'so called item' that Hester found, they send the actor off and make him come back after they plant it...WTF!!!!....and to top this off all the actors get PAID for each episode, apparently thousands....stay behind after the auction and you can see how they fake it after the auction finishes....SOOOOO mad at the show for lying...I am never watching this again!!!!!
I love this show! I would love it even more if Dave were not a part of it! Dave has the worst attitude of any person I have ever seen. For someone to deliberately want to affect someones livelihood is just pure devilish! Barry on the other hand is hilarious!! He makes us laugh on about every episode we watch! He would be SO much fun to hang out with. ;) We also like Brandy and Jarrod, they are in it for their business and to make a living, and it seems they enjoy the auction too. Darrell and his son make a good team, it's nice to know a father and son can work and enjoy their time together. I do have one question though, who comes up with how much they have made? For example when Dave said something was a certain price does it is even sell for that?? Thanks!

I'll be honest with you. I really, really enjoyed this show. I thought,
like Pawn Stars or other similar shows, this show was real. That is,
the items found in the lockers were real. The on-camera interviews that
the cast give? I think any astute person can tell a lot of that is
scripted, and the "conflicts" between the various characters are
scripted, as many reality shows do. But I thought the *finds* in the
lockers were real.
Given we now learn this hasn't been the case, through Dave Hester's lawsuit against the show and A&E, I feel severely cheated. If the producers wanted (or needed) to plant crap in lockers to be sure each episode had exciting things in it, then don't pretend these are real finds. Make up a different show. "Oddities in Beverly Hills" perhaps, where we travel to someone's home and pick through crap they put in their garage 30 years ago. Or whatever.
This is REALLY sleazy of the "Storage Wars" producers, and this is REALLY sleazy of A&E. I think maybe there should be more lawsuits against this show, besides Hester's...
Two years ago, A&E's Storage Wars came out of nowhere and quickly became one of the highest rated shows on cable. The show is extremely addictive and I watch it religiously, but why? Most people think it has something to with the mystery about what's behind the door or the hunt for buried treasure, as usual; I have a different take on things. The reason this show is as popular as is it, is the buyers themselves. Reality TV is about watching real people in real situations. We like to see people who are just like us, struggling to survive, fighting with people at work, etc. The cast of Storage Wars are people that we can relate to and more than that, they are interesting as hell. Every week I can't wait to see what Barry does, who Dave's gonna make mad, and what inappropriate thing Jarrod is going to say to his wife. I believe the show's popularity has little to do with what's behind the door. It's the unique and interesting cast that keeps us coming back for more. The truth is that doesn't matter if it's storage auction buyers, meter maids, or hand fisherman, what we want is people we like and can easily relate to in different situation both inside and out of the office, and Storage Wars provides that and then some.
After watching Auction Hunters i looked for more similar type shows.
This show is about a couple of terrible auction hunters that spend more time overbidding each other than making any real money. I'd love to see what they really made on the sales rather than over estimated values.
This show is about what you could expect on world series of poker. Only entertainment is watching this guy Dave be a jackass. I would have love to have seen them stick it too him by letting the units go to him after he bids it up instead of overpaying for junk units. i gave up after 6 episodes.
I would advise anyone to watch Auction Hunters. Those guys were very particular about how much a unit might be worth by how much they could actually see. It is dumb to by a unit and pay 1700 with hope factor and "had a feeling".
Guys, calm down. It's a reality show, of course it's fake. Even though it's fake, it's extremely entertaining. You always want to see what they find, even though the producers planted it. How fun would it be if they didn't find anything in the lockers? It would be a bad show, like every other reality program that isn't fake. If you can even name one. Overall it's an enjoyable show, nothing too special, but i'd say it's worth your time. The producers did a great job of finding characters to appear in the show, for example: Barry, Jarod and Dave. It's always fun watching them bid, or even cheering a bit yourself in your living room. It's a good show that will keep you hooked at least a season.
LOL. I wouldn't be able to survive in this business. I'll overpay, and
I won't be able to sell the junk I buy. I don't know how these people
do it. They buy lockers and then claim they can sell "this chair for
$200 and that table for $500." To who? Who is buying this and how do
you make a profit when you have so much overhead. Anyway like I say, I
Storage Wars is a reality TV show that is about auctions that take place for storage lockers that can contain very valuable items. The buyers have a few minutes to take a look at the contents of the said locker and then the auction begins. In one episode a corpse was found of a woman whose husband had murdered her.
Storage Wars is an interesting series, once you start watching it becomes more addictive as you get to know the characters and pretty soon you are just itching to see what they have discovered and if their buys are good ones. I like watching Storage Wars to pique my interest as well as be entertained and often think of what items of value are out there just waiting to be discovered. Just please don't try buying your own storage locker.

This show is a guilty pleasure. Of course you have to suspend belief to enjoy it. Who really thinks anyone would leave 300K worth of art in a storage locker but couldn't afford the small monthly fees? The locks are all brand spanking new and obviously just put on the lockers. The reason to watch, is the interaction between the "stars" on the show. Barry is always quick witted and hilarious. I love to see just what vehicle he'll drive to the next auction. Brandi is the eye candy. Hester is the heel everyone loves to hate. Darryl' is the not too bright anti-Hester. Not a fan of some of the newest additions but I still find myself watching this if I pass by it on the dial.
Awesome freaking show! The show is great and intriguing before you get to know the characters. Once you know the characters the show gets even better! They get to know each other and they start hating each other. Awesome. I could watch this show all day. I actually have. I personally like everyone except Mr. Hester. Although he definitely is the smartest of the bunch. It's awesome to see something that you would think doesn't costs a penny turn out to be something super expensive. Overall I'd say its a darn good show. Go into it with a positive attitude and I think you will thoroughly it's a show for all ages. 9/10 almost perfect but I think they might have to change up the lineup soon and get a new cast.
