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 5 features 16 episodes never-before-released on DVD including the usual assortment of oddities for the Harrisons to consider like a 31-ton car-crushing Robosaurus, a mandolin that could be worth over $100,000 and an authentic Batmobile.

DISC 1: Darth Pawn / Put Up Your Dukes / Pawn Illustrated / Striking a Chord / Harrison For President / Wise Guys / Robosaurus / Ah, Shoot!

DISC 2: Going Postal / Chummobile / Evel Genius / Pablo Pawncasso / Sub for Sale / Missile Attack / Not on My Watch

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

Customer Reviews

This show is one that I can watch one episode after another.
Diana Davis
The guys in the pawn shop are entertaining...you never know what people are going to come into the store with...often very interesting items are brought to sell!
James
I like to see what kind of things people try to get money for and how much they think their junk is worth.

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.

I rated content 5 stars - however be careful , Volume 5 - ( IS NOT SEASON 5 ) it contains 16 episodes of season 2 which comes to 63 cents per episode being a good bargain.

When I read the title, I thought how exciting could a show about a pawn shop be? I gave it a try and from the first episode I watched, I was hooked. The one feature that keeps me coming back is that you can never guess what item someone is going to bring to the store to sell. I am constantly amazed at what I see. Everything from a Civil War cannon to a modern day Lamborghini. Unlike other shows, whose storylines can get dull and predictable; Pawn Stars keeps you interested by providing a sense of anticipation about what that next "treasure" coming through the door will be.

I have the HDX 8.9" and really love this show. Being a Prime member, I especially enjoy getting certain seasons for free. Anyway, content wise the show is wonderful. It's always entertaining because you never know what someone is bringing in. Picturewise, the picture is excellent in HD. This is just a great investment in your entertainment.

I love pawn stars. It has really grown on me :) very interesting show- you learn a lot by seeing all the things that come into the shop because they tell you about the history or cultural relevance.

Fantastic Series.... Human Nature on Getting Something for Nothing and Trying to Pull One over on the Pawn Stars.... sometimes it works, but rarely. Pawn Stars are honest compared to the average Pawn Shops I've had experience with who purchase and pawn at a 15:1 Ratio.... YET some of their customers are always expecting way too much value when they are the sellers, almost laughable when they don't WANT the pawn Stars to make a Profit considering overhead and everything else, on something they picked up for FREE or at a Garage Sale.....Can't make Money Off of me....yet some of the Sellers to the Pawn Stars have Common Sense and are reasonable. The episodes of the Tough Guys from New York was hysterical, must have been decendents of the Lords of Flatbush.
