I just think it's a fun show and you learn a little something while watching it, same with American Pickers and American Restoration. All three are must-watch for me. At least it's better than the garbage on the Totally Ludicrous Channel (TLC).
I'm a 'hooker' and a knitter. I guess that makes me bi-stitchual :). To view links or images in signatures your post count must be 0 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
I think Chumlee's speech change is a result of his new teeffies. He has a totally new and less charmingly bumpkin appearance now. To me, he used to be the star of the show, people-wise. Of course, the real star is the stuff people bring in.
One of the oddities is the continuing inclusion of the son in the show, as he is one of the most consistently biggest A-holes on television.
