This is the biggest FAKE I have EVER seen! The History Channel tries to make you think that this is season 3. Don't be fooled! If you have Netflix, then you can watch this "Volume 3" right now and not have to wait until June 5, 2012. On Netflix it states that the episodes featured here are Season 2 Episode: 9-16. The REAL season 2 has 28 episodes not 8. It's honestly pathetic!!! Think about it, if you pay $14.99 for this DVD, you are paying almost $2 an episode. That's absolutely CRAZY when you can pay $7.99 for Netflix and get every epidisode of Season 1 and 2 PLUS everything else you can watch. Please show the History Channel that WE are not going to take this crap. Go to their website and write to them that you want EVERY episode in the season and you don't appreciate them getting OUR money by LYING and TRICKING us into believe we are getting the real deal!

This show for the most part is G rated; there are a few comments that are more PG 13, but it is so hard to find family friendly shows and this is better than most. I also like the fact that it is a fun way for kids to learn some history while being entertained. All in all we enjoy this show and have watched every episode!

I had to counter the 1 star review... if you dont like the price, then buy somewhere else. (yes it's high) But for those who dont worship at the altar of apple, the price isn't too bad if you consider the total lack of a cable bill. I just buy seasons of the shows I like and avoid the overpriced cable bill.

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.

I've kind of gotten hooked on this show. It's not a brain-burner by any means, but I enjoy watching these two guys travel around the country in their white van, stopping in out-of-the-way places and exploring through dirty, dusty, spidery old barns, basements, sheds, and even storage units. You couldn't get me to go into some of the places they go, not even to find the rusty treasures they find.

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.

This is a fun series. Mike and Frank travel around the country (and world in season 7) to find "rusty gold" that they can resell for a profit to collectors who often re-purpose the finds. The first two seasons are available on DVD sets, but starting with season three, they are available from Amazon. We've visited the store in LeClare and spoke with one of the people who have appeared on the show. The pickers have to scramble to stock the three stores involved. Mike owns the one in LeClare and the one in Nashville. Frank owns his own store in Savanna, Illinois, about an hour or so north of the quad cities area. So each picker is acquiring stuff for his own store.

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.

This show is primarily a following of the two men pictured as they go on "treasure hunts" for antiques and uniques to purchase and then turn around and sell for a profit in their shop. My husband and I both enjoy sitting down and watching this show together after we get our kids in bed and it is saying something to find something we both like. The only negatives are that the two men are often hokey and a little corny, but it works for the show for the most part. Our biggest irritant is the start up for the show which always depicts the same scene for the very first episode and ends up with a goofy pretend punching with Mike and Frank. That aside, if you just fast forward through the music/silliness at the beginning and get on to the show, it is quite enjoyable.
