Storyline

Brit Eaton and Scott Glaves explore the last frontier of American archaeology, the old ghost towns, abandoned mining camps, and industrial graveyards of the Wild West, in search of collectible artifacts from a bygone era. Whether it's convincing a sixth generation rancher to part with a stockpile of pre-19th century antiques, or unearthing a 150-year old mine shaft that holds a horde of Gold Rush mining gear, there's an endless supply of eccentric people, places, and artifacts to find and explore. From the Four Corners to the Alaskan wilderness to the Deep South, the American landscape is littered with deserted mine workings, abandoned ranches, and antiquated farmhouses and outbuildings still well preserved and primed for picking.

Not super original, but still entertaining
23 February 2019 | by bryantc-34579See all my reviews

Obviously the same premise as American Pickers, but with a focus on western history. These 2 guys are not as smooth on camera as the hosts of AP, but hey, it's their first season. I shudder to imagine how awkward I would be on TV.

By episode 2 it became obvious to me that there was friction between the hosts, maybe that's why there is only one season. Whereas AP hosts are in business together and share the profits, these two guys are in direct competition for items, and basically fighting over the profits. By the last episode they are intentionally sabotaging each other's deals, maybe that's what made it entertaining.

I love American Pickers, but I get tired of seeing them go gaga over toys and ugly cars. It is nice to see a show with a focus on old western memorabilia, since I live in the west and I love old western stuff. I have been to half of the towns they go to in season one, so it resonates with me. I enjoyed the first season, and I wish there was more.

I found it entertaining, which is why I watch TV.
