Explanation For Lower Rating:

I'm not sure what the History Channel is doing with their DVD releases this year, but it is certainly a step in the wrong direction. When they released "Pawn Stars: Volume Three," many people assumed that the show would be Season Three as the other two seasons of the program had been released in their entirety. It was, in fact, only sixteen episodes. When they released "American Pickers: Volume Two," it was the same thing. Season One had been released with all episodes, but this Volume Two was only eight episodes of Season Two. I know some people that preordered sight unseen, or just weren't paying attention, felt a little shortchanged by these smaller portions as opposed to what they had assumed were full season DVD releases. Personally, I didn't agree with the decision--but, at least, the DVD packaging was very clear about what was included. Anyone who read the box knew what to expect--how many episodes and which ones, so it wasn't a blind investment!

Not so for "American Restoration, Volume One!" I am sitting here with the DVD in hand and nowhere does it say how many episodes are inside. Never mind that it doesn't list them (which in my opinion it should if it is not a Complete Season package)--it doesn't even tell you how many episodes you are getting. I suppose I'm supposed to look at the running time and do some estimated mathematics? I know this may seem trivial to some or that I'm overreacting, but I think the company owes potential buyers this information. My lower rating, therefore, reflects the History Channel's (or A&E Networks distributing) apparent disregard for its own fan base. I don't like to make purchases without knowing exactly what I'm paying for!

I, however, will tell you what is inside.

I don't know what happened, but along about the end of Season 1 the series switched from highlighting Rick's employees and their wonderful talents to becoming The Rick Dale Family show.

The series stopped featuring the steps taken to bring back an item back to life and instead showed a before and after view. That was the first noticeable difference. Then I saw no more shots/interviews with Kowboy, Kyle, and Ted.

I made it 1/4 way through Season 2 and couldn't take it anymore.

It's all speculation on my part, but I have seen it several times---a small business becomes successful and when it reaches a certain level of success, all the people that helped build the business are suddenly "OUT" and in comes the Wife, the Kids, Kid's friends, etc., and remarkably, THEY become the ones who built the business.

Nothing shows this more than the series pulling the old switcheroo with the opening theme.

Major Bummer for me.

Great show but I just wish it was like it was in the beginning.

I like the show but it would be better if they showed more detail on how they do the work.

The show is about making deal and showing off after project finished. There is very little or in some cases, no footage showing what process involved in getting the project done. You will see the customers bring in a rustic item, then the price, then boom, customer returned to see a fully restored item. Where is the process? I am not sure why the high rating, maybe I am the only looking the actual process so I can learn a thing or two.

I love this show. It shows people building something and bringing pieces of history back to life instead of someone killing someone or screwing someone over in some way. Instead of made up senseless idiocy, it shows real people doing real things and loving what they do. How can you not like that.

It's very interesting to see all the talent and knowledge that goes into restoring each item. The show is great because it generally positive and doesn't focus on arguments for drama or content. It is all about restoring the item and benefitting the customer.

This is the perfect show for those who appreciate life's diamonds in the rough. It great to watch the picker find this stuff, but even better to watch them being brought back to life again.
