This is the only show I watch regularly because I learn about collectible items, about the pawn business, and negotiating. It is set in Las Vegas and is truly watchable and unique. The show is corny and unintentionally funny but the episodes are well constructed and edited which keeps your interest and the characters are genuine.

Rick Harrison is the main character of the show. He is a competent and likable guy who laughs at his own jokes. He has the most screen time each show. Often people have items that he does not know the value of, and they have to call an expert in to appraise it. Rick has a bunch of experts who probably wish they never met him because he constantly calls them, but that is what makes the show interesting. The funniest thing is that the expert then appraises the item right in front of the seller. Rick's negotiation style is to listen to what the customer wants and then counter with 40% of whatever they want. So if they want $100 he offers $40 and then talks about how the item is deficient, how he has to make a profit, blah blah blah. Then whether he buys the item or not they have a cut away interview with him and he'll say, "This time the price wasn't right so we couldn't make a deal."

Old Man is the patriarch of the family and by far the best negotiator. It does not matter what price the seller wants for an item, Old Man acts like he is offended, surprised, and automatically says "no way." He is such a tough bargainer that I don't think I have ever seen him actually buy anything. If it wasn't for Corey and Rick they would have an empty store. Also, he keeps a big calendar by his desk so we know exactly the month of the show, so the Christmas show was going on and his calendar said "October".

Have really enjoyed watching this show. Then BAM! Amazon pulled it from their free with Prime titles. Way to go Amazon, ensure that I will NOT renew prime.

I'm not a big fan of reality TV, in fact, this is the only reality television that I watch, and I love it. Recently, the whole fam was seated in the living room watching this show and my daughter said, "You know who Rick looks like?" And I paused and couldn't come up with anything. Finally she said, "He's Homer Simpson come to life. Look at him - he looks just like Homer!"

I love Rick even more now. :)

The show is such an interesting sociological study for so many different reasons. There's an awesome and interesting family dynamic between hardworking Rick and "The Old Man" and the always-had-everything-handed-to-him third generation son "Corey." I've read that many successful family businesses die off at the third generation. Seems the first generation (Hard-working Dad) and the second generation (Hard-working son Rick) remember those lean years and tough times and appreciate the value of a dollar and the joy and satisfaction of success. And then when the third generation comes along, all they've ever known is abundance and having everything they ever wanted dropped in their avoirdupois lap.

Enter stage left Corey.

It's fun to watch the show, but I cringe when he comes on screen. It pains me to hear how he talks to "The Old Man." Maybe he's a swell, upstanding, hardworking kid and the bratty kid spiel is part of the "show." I hope so. Gosh, I hope so.

Aside from that, it's a fascinating insight into the hidden treasures stashed inside American attics and garages. It also proves that you should be careful about tossing out "old junk." Several times, visitors to the shop explain that they found their treasure in a trash pile somewhere.

Excellent show, and presents a piece of American history in a most intriguing way! And personally, the first season is the best. There's a naturalness in that first season that I especially love.

This is a great show because it is one of very few shows that our WHOLE family loves to watch and we always watch together. My kids are 11 and 13.
Pawn Shop is funny to watch because the family who run the shop are so amusing. Best though is (for us as parents) one learns a lot while watching. All kinds of things come into the pawn shop everyday. These guys know a lot about history and so we, the viewers, learn about antique coins, WW1 uniforms, ancient weapons....just to name a fraction of all the stuff that comes into the pawn shop. If no one knows about an item a prospective seller brings in, the pawn shop guys will call in experts and we all learn something together in a really fun way. LOVE THIS SHOW.

I just love this series about a Pawn Shop in Las Vegas! It is the American version of those stuffy BBC Antique road shows but is a whole lot funnier and just as educational. The "Old Man" is just outroariously funny as one Crusty Old Dude, his son is a font of information and Hoss is a barrel of frustration dealing with those two handfuls. I won't even go on about Chumlee as comic relief. As they would say The History Channel hit one out of the ball park with this one! I just hope that this series continues for a good long time! (I gotta get out to Las Vegas soon to see these guys asap)

Pawn stars is great, but come on amazon I watched this on prime 2 weeks ago and now it's gone. Keep lowering value while upping price and expect no one to notice?
