HISTORY s ratings record-breaker is back for another installment!
In small towns, and along America's back roads, treasures are waiting to be uncovered valuable relics from our history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages. It takes experts to find them and turn rust to riches. American Pickers follows two of the most skilled pickers Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology, and his business partner, Frank Fritz as they hunt down objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history. AMERICAN PICKERS: VOLUME 4 proves there s no place Mike and Frank won t go in search of hidden treasure as they pick through the hills of Malibu, California, go to a backcountry Alabama auction, and go on assignment for William Shatner.

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!
Now here's a leap backwards for "American Pickers,Volume 4."
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!Read more ›
it is NOT season 4.
sure it says "volume" but if you're not familiar (which i wasn't) with that brand of marketing it's easy to not realize you're being tricked. If they wanted to be honest. they'd say "Volume 4 of Season 2" so clearly this is a bit of dis-honesty hoping to trick you into not being careful. Well done amazon. I became complacent and forgot, you don't trust anywone, not even someone you've bought from for years.
However, as much as I used to love this show, I do think it has a somewhat canned feel to it. I doubt that Danielle is really more than a prop for the show, and Frank appears to be pretty weary of the show at this point. He is almost humorless in many of these episodes. Also, the ad placement for Subway is annoying. I hope it paid off for them, because I am completely turned off now. I used to really adore these guys. Just too scripted...it has lost its luster for me.
They find an object, and can give us it's history,
You won't be disappointed, if you watch this, show, and all the characters, they run into.
