Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

These installments of the History Channel's proto-series about average joes selling their stuff to a crew of pedigreed pawnbrokers are taken from seasons three and four, in keeping with the release strategy of other episodes. Though it seems an insignificant detail, it should be made clear to the many Pawn Stars fanatics out there that these discs don't represent seasons four and five, but rather are a selection of 16 "fan favorites." To quote a review of other DVD volumes, Pawn Stars is sort of like Antiques Roadshow in Vegas, or Antiques Roadshow on crack. People come in to the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop with treasure or trash from their closets or garages and hope to walk away with wads of cash. How much they get is usually a lot less than what they expect. That's because the shop is run with tight iron fists by the Harrison clan, three generations of wheeler-dealers who drive hard bargains. The boss is Rick Harrison, a burly, take-no-prisoners type who is the Pawn Stars equivalent of Paul Teutul Sr. on the long-running Discovery Channel reality show American Chopper. Rick's father Richard Benjamin Harrison--a.k.a. "the Old Man"--cofounded the shop with his son and conveys the aura of godfather to the operation in many ways. Rick's son Corey goes by the moniker "Big Hoss" and plays an important role in business operations that was like Paul Jr.'s on American Chopper. The fourth key staff member and the one who takes on dramatic duties similar to one of Shakespeare's fools is the knuckleheaded yet lovable lardo Austin "Chumlee" Russell, who was Corey's childhood friend. The tension in the show is often built to overheated levels when the haggling sets in, and it relies heavily on the opportunistic placement of commercial breaks as cliffhangers. The device makes DVD viewing feel somewhat repetitive, but the show is as creatively paced as any reality series that focuses on a family dynamic or a similar concept. Storage Wars certainly comes to mind, as does the quasi Pawn Stars spinoffs Auction Hunters, Counting Cars, Auction Kings, and Cajun Pawn Stars. Each episode is fairly predictable, but that doesn't mean there's no cause for addictive or binge viewing. Some of the items that are brought in for the Harrisons' review on these two two-disc volumes are life-sized Darth Maul and Jar Jar Binks figures, a possible Stradivarius violin, a check signed by mob boss Carlo Gambino, a pair of mint-condition 1990 Air Jordan V sneakers, a blackjack table from the defunct Stardust Casino, a 1936 Rolex watch once owned by Bernie Madoff, and a hat supposedly worn by John Wayne. That barely scratches the surface of the variety of objects brought in for appraisal. The Harrisons know a lot about pretty much everything, but when they don't, they bring in a revolving cast of experts to provide details about provenance and worth. But an item is only valuable to the Pawn Stars if someone else wants to buy it. Observing the calculating eye and the haggling skills on display is all part of the fun. The other part of the fun is the interplay between the shop's staff, which is played almost entirely for laughs and rarely feels extemporaneous. But even though some moments may be scripted, the Harrisons have been at it long enough to make it work--for the cameras and their wallets. --Ted Fry

Product Description

Product Description

The top rated series from HISTORY returns to DVD!

There is no better example of today's pawnbrokers than the Harrison family's Gold and Silver Pawn shop on the outskirts of Las Vegas - the modern day Mecca for people in need of quick cash. Three generations of Harrison men clash with friendly camaraderie over items from classic cars to samurai swords. Here, everything has a history, and everything has a price. And you never know what's going to walk through the door. PAWN STARS: VOLUME 4 features 16 episodes never-before released on DVD including a wide variety of eclectic items for the Harrisons to haggle over like Colonel Sanders' suit, a competition dragster racecar and an Abraham Lincoln campaign ribbon.

PAWN STARS: VOLUME 4 includes 16 fan-favorite episodes on two discs:

DISC 1: Cornering the Colonel / Ready, Set, Pawn / The Eagle Has Landed / Like a Rolling Chum / Hello Nurse / Chumdog Millionaire / Gone With The Schwinn / Bare Bones

DISC 2: Never Surrender / Honest Abe / Monkey Business / Packing Heat / Luck of the Draw / Houdini's Handcuffs / Pedal to the Metal / Case Closed

1.0 out of 5 stars History Channel's Poor Business Plan Remains Intact March 4, 2012
Format:DVD
After launching the incomplete Pawn Stars Season 3 (deviously named "Volume 3") with only 16 episodes, the marketing blunder continues with the impending release of 16 Pawn Stars Season 4 episodes on 2 DVD's.

I purchased the first two full season Pawn Stars sets and fell in love with the show. Subsequent to my own purchase, I ordered three additional sets from Amazon for delivery to friends and relatives, generating four sales of the same two full season DVD sets. Negative reviews from others prompted me to delay buying Volume 3 until the producers elected to release the full 3rd season in one DVD set, as they had done for the first two seasons. This has not happened, nor does it seem likely since season / volume 4 is now following the same poor business plan as Pawn Stars season 3 did.

In an effort to entice the producers to release full-season versions of Pawn Stars DVD sets, I contacted History Channel via their web site. After two weeks had passed, their generic reply stated that "...my inquiry was important to them and has been sent to the relevant sales department for a response". An update never came so clearly my bu$ine$$ and customer satisfaction wasn't important nor relevant to History Channel. After all, they have a top show with Pawn Stars and clearly they could care less whether the fans can complete a collection of the full DVD seasons or not.

At this juncture I must point out that I reside overseas, in a geographic location that prevents me from buying the Pawn Stars episodes that are offered as downloads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Watching October 27, 2013
By Gloria
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I gave this a four star rating because the content of show is always fresh and interesting to watch. The content gives you history and the fun side of valuation of items brought into the shop. My only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the language can get rough at times, and I don't see why they have to use it. The show stands for itself without the profanity.

Format:DVD
Quick Take: Essentially, this is half a season for half the price. A non-sale, non-discounted price of 19.95 fits in line with almost six hours worth of DVD content. A full season, had it been released that way, would simply have doubled the asking price.

Last year, History and A&E Television made the dubious decision to start releasing Volumes of their most popular shows as opposed to Seasons. I was one of the most vocal opponents of this move and some of my scathing tirades can be found on those initial releases. In truth, though, I have nothing against the idea of volume releases (especially for shows that aren't held together by continuing plot threads) as long as three things are clear:

1) They need to be priced according to content and no more expensive individually than a season set would be.
2) Don't start releasing Full Seasons and then switch tactics mid-stream to confuse unsuspecting buyers.
3) If it isn't a season, all content needs to be disclosed on the DVD packaging so the consumer knows what they are getting!

Last year, many of these early Volume releases broke my second and third rule. I mean really! How can you release a DVD when it's not a full season and NOT tell buyers how many and which episodes are included? Absolutely unforgivable. I need that information to decide whether or not I want to purchase the set. As we have progressed, though, and the notion that we're to continue with Volume releasing has stayed with us, the point becomes rather more muddy. Now, we're past the second issue and the third issue has been corrected. All of these Volume releases now contain information about the content. So, there is no deception and no confusion. You get "x" number of episodes for "x" price. It's now up to you whether or not it's worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Show Is Great For Quick Lunchtime Breaks April 15, 2014
By Indo
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a nice blend between "reality TV" and PBS's Antiques Roadshow. The seller items chosen are always interesting, and it seems they never end. I'm beginning to wonder if those items are "plants", because it seems that the pawn shop gets a never-ending stream of interesting historical objects. Real item sellers or not, the show continues to remain interesting, and the shop characters more interesting than the Antique Roadshow's experts.
