BAD KNOCKOFF of original Storage Wars
24 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you've seen the original Storage Wars show and like that one, you probably won't like this one, or won't like it as much. This version really has some issues.

They are:

All of main characters are morons. I mean, they seriously lack a certain amount of intelligence. So whereas the original version of Storage Wars clearly has smart people in this line of business -- all of them, the exact reverse is true for this Texas version.

Here's one small example: In the episode that aired 12/20/11, the 2 fat bubbas that work together win one locker, and they find this novelty piece that's shaped like a blimp. So they're looking at it, and we the audience can see it's silver colored, but if you know sterling silver, you can tell that's what it is from your couch in the living room. But one bubba says to the other after a minute, this is sliver, and the other bubba says "Really?" -- cause he can't tell what sterling silver looks like 4 inches from his face. Yet he's in the business of buying & selling merchandise. Good God, man. How these 2 make a living is beyond me.

The woman is as much a redneck as the bubbas (i.e., appears to be poorly educated), and, even the New York transplant guy is a complete moron. His arrogance is annoying, not endearing, because he's as moronic as the others. I don't even know a thing about scooters, but seeing the one in the 12/20/11 show? Even you would guess that thing wasn't worth that much, but this New Yorker thinks it's worth a fortune, and lets the bubbas run it up on him.

Who the hell did the casting for this show??? Seriously? Why didn't the producers cast more interesting characters? And ones with *some* intelligence? How can I enjoy a show with characters this dumb? How can anyone in America really enjoy watching this?

Only one of this cast shows any smarts, the Collector guy (forget what his nickname really is), but this character is a complete clone of Barry the Collector from the original show, right down to funky clothing and collectible cars. No originality in casting here...!

Lame show overall. After 3 or 4 episodes, I'm done, I'll just stick to watching the original version. Heck, even the auctioneer is inferior to the one from the original show. The auctioneer on this show is bland & boring, and his ability to get the price up is not great. He could be up to $800 on an auction, and instead of going up by $100 increments, or even $50, he'll be pushing it up by increments of $25. What?? What professional auctioneer would do this when the price goes over a couple hundred bucks? So even the auctioning isn't interesting. Lame, lame show. Too bad.
