I liked the show as much, if not more than the original for the first couple of seasons. Jenny and Mary were great additions for season two, which I think is the strongest season.
But then you could see the wheels coming off in season three. We still had Mary, which was a huge plus, but Moe was gone most of the season. I didn't realize how much Victor was part of the enjoyment of the show until he was out of the opening credits and gone for most of the season as well. Other buyers came and went and you didn't know week to week who would be there. That not only left things unstable, but none of the part time "characters" were very likable. In particular Matt Blevins who is the only person less likable than Dave Hester on the original series.
As for the show in general, I find some of the criticism funny. It IS a TV show, so there are certain things that are done for TV. There have been more than a few times they have come across something I'm quite sure they are aware of the value, but for the benefit of the show they "have it checked out". That doesn't mean the show is fake, and that doesn't mean the people on it are (here comes that word) morons.
If you like the original Storage Wars, it's worth checking out, though you might get ready to abandon ship with season three.
