Product Description

HISTORY's ratings record-breaker is back for a third 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 that have been long forgotten by their owners. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history. In AMERICAN PICKERS: VOLUME 3 Mike and Frank explore a century-old amusement park, pick their way through a geodesic dome and after years of begging, finally allow Danielle to get in on the action.

DISC 1: Hobo Jack / Laurel and Hardy / Frank Flips / Mike's Breakdown

DISC 2: Pint-Sized Picker / A Banner Pick / Danielle Goes Picking / What's In The Box?

Amazon.com

Fans of the History Channel's compulsively watchable American Pickers won't want to miss these eight episodes of Mike and Frank on the road to find gold dust among America's trash. To be clear, this set contains eight hour-long episodes from the second season of American Pickers; it's not season three. But it's still great entertainment value for the buck. These episodes find Mike and Frank wandering the back roads of the middle of the country in search of buried (in some cases, truly buried) treasure to resell. The stars are collegial and always friendly and respectful of the folks with whom they deal, which is part of the appeal of American Pickers. Like its slightly more upscale cousin, Antiques Roadshow, it ends up being heavy on the interesting arcana of history, and of what Americans just love collecting. Some of the more memorable pieces in these episodes include a skeletal military "training gun" from 1919--an amazing contraption twice the size of a regular rifle so that a sergeant could easily demonstrate its loading and firing to new soldiers. Other treasures include a working slot machine, and the always-popular metal oil-company signs Mike and Frank live for. (Don't mention the vintage Honda that got sold just before they arrived to check it out… it's still a sore subject with Frank.) As always, this set of episodes of American Pickers gets the viewer wondering just what his or her own junque might be worth--and also ends up teaching a lot about American history, through its old memorabilia. OK, time to hit the road! --A.T. Hurley

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 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!

Whatever History A&E is doing, they're really messing up the order of the shows. Only 2 Discs:From 2010: Disc 1: Hobo Jack/Laurel & Hardy/Frank Flips & Mike's Breakdown. Disc 2: Pint Sized Picker/A Nanner Pick/Danielle Goes Picking & What's in the Box?/Have'nt ordered Volume 4 yet because once again V.4 has only 2 Discs & stuck on 2011's just like Pawn Stars. I've tried to email & write them but get no replies. Stay tuned...

This very entertaining season is the result of Mike, Frank, and Danielle's relationships firing on all cylinders while they do the stuff we love to watch: exhuming junk and haggling to buy it! I greatly enjoy this show. You might have to be in to old stuff and Americana to enjoy this style of show... but, if you give it 5 minutes, the relationships and banter will suck you in and you'll get a junk education simultaneously.

Love to watch the older shows, even though they are on a repeat loop on History. Frank and Mike always find such interesting garbage. Sometimes I just can't imagine anyone wanting to buy the trash they find when they are rummaging through the old barns, etc. You just keep watching to see what that big pick is going to be!!

I love American Pickers. It is one of my favorite shows. Mike and Frank are fun to watch because they are great friends and they love picking. The people they meet and the items they find are very interesting. If you have never watched American Pickers give it a try. You will like it.

These guys make this show a lot of fun to watch. They are not over the top or anything, not trying to be the next big thing, just a couple of regular guys, with a few odd quirks (as we all have) traveling the countryside trying to buy stuff that they can resell for a profit. This is the realest of the auction, buy/sell reality shows and pretty entertaining. It makes you want to try your own hand at buying "junk" and reselling it.
