This is perhaps one of the only reality-type shows that has come about in the wake of Pawn Stars' success that I really honestly and truly like. It doesn't play to the same horrendously false pretenses of drama that shows like Pawn Stars does (the whole "Oh, in between shifts we have to plan the company party and sound like it was our idea and fail miserably at it"). They might do something goofy like hold a margarita face-off or play a prank, but it ALWAYS has something to do with the items in for auction, and it never feels like they are being forced to say and do those things. They all have great, genuine chemistry between one another - just as you'd hope to have at any job. I actually admire these people like they're neighbors in my own community - not perfect, but kind, awesome people who work hard at what they do and have passion for what they do. It's really refreshing. The only tick mark against this show to bring the show to a 9 out of 10 for me is the pickers from up north Discovery decided to bring to the side. Their presence feels very forced in an otherwise well-executed show, and where the rest of the crew really feel at harmony with one another, these guys just feel like a sour chord, like they really don't want to be there but Discovery is making them. That's really the only flaw. Keep the picking to American Pickers, and just stick to Gallery 63.
