Yeah, I haven't promoted a movie/show/video game in a long time, but I feel this show needs SGW attention. :)

Seriously, I was worried about History Channel due to it's horrible new shows and all TEOTWAWKI shows, but Pawn Stars made that channel watchable again. Not only is the show funny and entertaining, but full of historical information that even knuckleheads like me can learn from. Not to mention old guns show up quite a bit there. The characters are cool too. Rick is cool. Corey is cool. The Old Man is a little creepy, but funny and cool. And Chumlee.........well............he's pure entertainment.

Catch new episodes Monday at 10pm and check your listings for reruns.

There sure is some cool stuff coming in there. I kind of like old stuff and I've seen stuff I did'nt even know existed on that show.

One of the few shows my wife and I both like watching. Usually, she's watching FoodTV, I don't watch much TV, but when I do it's usually documentaries or outdoors show. We both love Pawn Stars.

I have to agree, I like the show too. They have some pretty cool items come in. I watched last night and they had a guy bring in a lottery ticket signed by George Washington!!! Yeah, Chumlee ROCKS!!!!....lol

Yeah the wife and I both like it. I find it pretty funny when folks bring things in ecpecting to get market value and then look all heartbroken when they're offered 50-66% of what it's worth. Maybe they're just trying to game Rick, but sometimes it seems like they don't have a clue how pawn shops work. :lol:

My wife and I both like this show, too, and make a point to watch it. What has surprised me, though, is how often they're shown buying something and then putting more money in it for repairs. And, sometimes a LOT of money. I just didn't think that happened. I suppose that's because the small shops around here don't operate on the same scale.

Kind of hard to tell when The Old Man is pissed because of his expressionless face, but yeah I saw the helicopter episode. Rick on the other hand has a very emotional face. You could tell he was pissed over the hot air balloon and Chris Craft boat purchases. I was suprised Rick actually tried to get his money back from the balloon. As for The Old Man, I think he was most pissed when he thought Corey and Rick sold his '66 Imperial.

Although, Corey and Chumlee really make that show. Those two are the frick and frack together. The things that they've done together, makes me laugh every time!

I really enjoy the show because you learn about the history of the items people bring in. Then there is the entertainment of the generation gap between the characters. How they muddle through is very enlightening! Years from now, when Corey and Chumlee are in charge, THAT will be the most fun to watch... if they can stay in business! HHD

Pawn Stars definitely is a quality show. The stuff that comes through that shop is really cool. I like the negotiation process as well.

Negotiation?

seller:I want $1000
Rick: :lol: I'll give you $500
seller: How about $750
Rick: How about $500
seller: OK $500

I love the show! Chumlee is my favorite.

I also like that show "American Pickers" on the History Channel too.

:lol: :lol:

He's so blunt about it. I love it when the seller proposes some extravagant price and he basically just laughs.

Is it just me or was Rick sporting some major dark circles under his eyes in this week's new episodes? He needs sleep!

Funny how each of them kept letting the arrow fall off.

Chumlee beat them both! ^_^
