Editorial Reviews

Follow four professional buyers and their teams as they scour repossessed storage units in search of hidden treasure in Season 1 of the new A&E original real life series, STORAGE WARS. Part gamblers and part detectives, these seasoned veterans negotiate the fascinating and obscure world of storage auction and consignment, finding everything from dead bodies to the world s most valuable comic book collection and paying as little as ten dollars for items valued in the millions. Each episode of STORAGE WARS follows a group of bidders as they get a quick peek inside the units, aided only by a flashlight. They then must assess on the spot if the unit is worth a bid and how high they re willing to go. The high-stakes fun begins as they see if the resulting buy is full of mostly trash...or true treasure. Driven by Dan Dotson, one of the most successful and outrageous auctioneers in the country, STORAGE WARS cast of buyers is as colorful and varied as the treasures they uncover.

I manage a storage facility in Southern California. I hate to tell you this, but there are a lot of reasons people "default" on their stuff. Sometimes it is a death, jobless, but honestly, most of the time, it is just that that person (or company) realized that they have paid on the stuff for so long, that it is just not worth it anymore. My current price on a 10 X 20 unit is $309 per month, plus $9 for insurance. People pay it every day, an a lot of them are happy to pay it. But it doesn't take long to tell yourself that you are upside down on the items. If you have a sofa that has been in storage for three months, it is easy to say "time to let that one go, and just buy a new one".

We make every attempt to get the people in here to pay, even offering them the ability to move out for next to nothing. Sometimes, even move out for free. By the time it happens, it is too late to feel sorry for them.

As for the coin collections and such, a lot of times, the kids put grandmas stuff in storage after she died, and they didn't know what was in the boxes. Or more likely (especially lately) it is stuff that "The Talent"had in his store, that he brought with him to make it look a lot more interesting for the show.

I have had the show filmed here, and I know what I am speaking of. One time, I saw the same stuff that the one buyer had purchased at an auction here, that he "discovered" in a unit. It was right on top of the stuff he bought here, and the bidding got pretty fierce because of it.
While these guys are the real deal, (Barry is a true crack up) they are simply acting for the show. In fact, when they filmed here, they ALL got into Darryls truck and went to lunch together...it's an act folks...

I bought this for a buck at a yard-sale. Did I get my money's worth? Yes...but if I paid more, I'd have been disappointed.

So, I watched all 19 episodes over both days this weekend. I admit that I was a bit hooked at times, but it had nothing to do with any of the actors. The excitement came from just seeing a cool find, but was diminished when I knew a jerk bought it.

Various thoughts...

- the woman Brandi was pretty-annoying at times; "Really? You're falling for Dave's tricks again and spending our entire day's budget on one locker?" she mentioned in one episode; I found myself saying to the TV "You're ridiculous. Say something right to the guy you're in business with and not the viewing audience."; she's 'done' inaction like this before

- Barry is the most likable, with some funny ideas (the small-person on stilts to see in the back with night-vision: awesome; psychics: silly) and even offering stuff from his bins to others

- only in the final episodes do you see others actually bidding and not just the main players; others are never named by the auction-guy; of course, he knows the names of the "pros"; it annoys me to see people just standing around and not even looking in the storage units; there is no episode where anybody outside of the actors lost a locker to someone who wasn't a part of the show

- Darrell was alright overall (I hear that he's more of a jerk later, so...

Storage Wars is a 20-minute fast-paced show with 2 acts.

Act 1: Bidding Wars
Our main characters, along with others who happen to be there, compete in auctions for storage garages (when people don't pay their rent on their unit, they go up for sale).

The main attraction here is the competing nature of the characters. Throwing nasty wods and occasional assistance, mixed with money and profit, makes for some good drama.

Act 2: The Appraisal
The characters appraise anything worth value. The appraisers often give history and meaning behind the value. It's like a competitive version of the Antiques Roadshow or Pawn Stars.

You'll learn interesting facts about both interesting and mundane pieces. A seemingly dull punch bowl might net thousands while an interesting antique Coke product might turn out to be an artificially aged fake. It's especially fun when the poeple you don't like end up with the fakes.

The Characters:

Each character has their own purposes.

Dave has a giant shop to keep stocked, so he's after high-end profits. He has tons of money to bring to the table and a large team to help move.

Jarrod and Brandi have a quaint little shop with very little money to spend. So they're after the marketable stock.

Darrell is a sniper of a bidder. He'll be quiet until something very nice shows up. He's looking for high profit goods to sell.

Barry is a retired guy looking for unique collector's items. He could care less about making a profit. He only bids when he thinks the unit has something he wants to put in his living room.

This is a great show to watch for the character interactions and the appraisals. However, it's not terribly great for rewatch value.
