HISTORY's ratings record-breaker is back for a third installment!
In small towns, and along America's back roads, treasures are waiting to be uncovered - valuable relics from our history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages. It takes experts to find them - and turn rust to riches. AMERICAN PICKERS follows two of the most skilled "pickers" - Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology, and his business partner, Frank Fritz - as they hunt down objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value that have been long forgotten by their owners. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history. In AMERICAN PICKERS: VOLUME 3 Mike and Frank explore a century-old amusement park, pick their way through a geodesic dome and after years of begging, finally allow Danielle to get in on the action.
DISC 1: Hobo Jack / Laurel and Hardy / Frank Flips / Mike's Breakdown

Now, about the show... it quickly became one of my favorites. The duo travel around the country finding "mantiques". Whats not to like when they pick old motorcycles, antique bicycles, rusty signs.
Def a guy show.
This is not a complete season, but follows the same pattern as the previous two DVD's. Frank and Mike tool around, either going on calls that have been set up for them or "free styling," where they just drive around looking for places with old junk, old cars, old motorcyles, etc that might be a good place to stop. This series includes a visit to an old amusement park, one that had wind and flood damage put it out of business and where they bought some old sideshow paintings...and had them appraised in NYC of all places. They also go to a home that is completely painted with strange pictures, where the two guys who own it are artists and ride around on a tandem bike with Dr Seuss style hats. They also visit a home with an old motorcyle for a weathervane and their asst who usually mans the phones back at their homebase in Iowa finally gets to go on her first "pick" with Mike, while Frank tries to do her job.
The people they meet sometimes are just as weird and interesting as the places they visit, or they're people who had a father, uncle, etc die who used to collect things for the past 20-50 years and now they have no idea what to do with barns and yards full of "junk."
Yes, you get the feeling that some of this has been set up for our benefit and that we don't get to see the whole picture. Which makes it just as real as most reality TV.Read more ›
There are currently 10 seasons and all but season 8 and 10 are complete and available through Amazon. Season's 8 and 10 are each missing one episode, so it is no bargain to buy the individual episodes. Even then, the show is a lot of fun and you get to see a lot of the country.

I would buy all 7 or 8 series if they were available. People in the country don't have high speed internet to buy your on demand videos. Your missing a lot of potential business. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Bruce L VandyBogurt
