Agreed.
I doubt VERY much those guys are bright enough to be talented quipsters in real life.

Sure, a lot of situations are setups (yeah, there are camera crews in the shop ALL the time).

Nonetheless, it is one of my favorite shows.

A "reality" TV show isn't entirely real? OMG, what a shock.

I've got news for you guys. 100% of "reality" TV shows are staged and edited to some degree. Even news programs are cut to present an editorialized view.

Does anybody still watch this show? I still enjoy it, I actually watch it in bed tongue.gif

Some of the major collections people bring in are impressive. Collecting can become obsessive and costly. New episodes tonight, I'll be watching.

I find myself watching it less, but if nothing else is on I watch it. I rarely record it.

Sure....I watch it (and record it).

I know the drama is staged, but I like seeing the historical stuff that is brought into the shop.

I was in Vegas in Jan, so on Saturday, we drove by the store. There was a decent size line outside to get in.

That's what I've always heard, it's more like a tourist attraction these days. I also hear the owners (people featured on the show) are hardly there during regular Monday-Friday 9-5 hours.

I've heard the same.

Not too surprising...I imagine they spend most of their time counting their $$$ the show has brought in.wink.gif

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).

Good job on his part, I'm happy for him.

I think he had one of those surgeries where they put in a band-thingy to reduce the size of the stomach itself.

Noticed how his voice suddenly changed?
I think that might be a result.

Good thinking! Yeah, I noticed a slight difference in his voice.

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.

I think you could make the same statement about the entire family.
It's easy to tell, when the cameras are off, they are not sweethearts.wink.gif
