Product Description

The top rated series from HISTORY returns to DVD!

There is no better example of today's pawnbrokers than the Harrison family's Gold and Silver Pawn shop on the outskirts of Las Vegas - the modern day Mecca for people in need of quick cash. Three generations of Harrison men clash with friendly camaraderie over items from classic cars to samurai swords. Here, everything has a history, and everything has a price. And you never know what's going to walk through the door. PAWN STARS: VOLUME 4 features 16 episodes never-before released on DVD including a wide variety of eclectic items for the Harrisons to haggle over like Colonel Sanders' suit, a competition dragster racecar and an Abraham Lincoln campaign ribbon.

PAWN STARS: VOLUME 4 includes 16 fan-favorite episodes on two discs:

DISC 1: Cornering the Colonel / Ready, Set, Pawn / The Eagle Has Landed / Like a Rolling Chum / Hello Nurse / Chumdog Millionaire / Gone With The Schwinn / Bare Bones

DISC 2: Never Surrender / Honest Abe / Monkey Business / Packing Heat / Luck of the Draw / Houdini's Handcuffs / Pedal to the Metal / Case Closed

Amazon.com

These installments of the History Channel's proto-series about average joes selling their stuff to a crew of pedigreed pawnbrokers are taken from seasons three and four, in keeping with the release strategy of other episodes. Though it seems an insignificant detail, it should be made clear to the many Pawn Stars fanatics out there that these discs don't represent seasons four and five, but rather are a selection of 16 "fan favorites." To quote a review of other DVD volumes, Pawn Stars is sort of like Antiques Roadshow in Vegas, or Antiques Roadshow on crack. People come in to the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop with treasure or trash from their closets or garages and hope to walk away with wads of cash. How much they get is usually a lot less than what they expect. That's because the shop is run with tight iron fists by the Harrison clan, three generations of wheeler-dealers who drive hard bargains. The boss is Rick Harrison, a burly, take-no-prisoners type who is the Pawn Stars equivalent of Paul Teutul Sr. on the long-running Discovery Channel reality show American Chopper. Rick's father Richard Benjamin Harrison--a.k.a. "the Old Man"--cofounded the shop with his son and conveys the aura of godfather to the operation in many ways. Rick's son Corey goes by the moniker "Big Hoss" and plays an important role in business operations that was like Paul Jr.'s on American Chopper. The fourth key staff member and the one who takes on dramatic duties similar to one of Shakespeare's fools is the knuckleheaded yet lovable lardo Austin "Chumlee" Russell, who was Corey's childhood friend. The tension in the show is often built to overheated levels when the haggling sets in, and it relies heavily on the opportunistic placement of commercial breaks as cliffhangers. The device makes DVD viewing feel somewhat repetitive, but the show is as creatively paced as any reality series that focuses on a family dynamic or a similar concept. Storage Wars certainly comes to mind, as does the quasi Pawn Stars spinoffs Auction Hunters, Counting Cars, Auction Kings, and Cajun Pawn Stars. Each episode is fairly predictable, but that doesn't mean there's no cause for addictive or binge viewing. Some of the items that are brought in for the Harrisons' review on these two two-disc volumes are life-sized Darth Maul and Jar Jar Binks figures, a possible Stradivarius violin, a check signed by mob boss Carlo Gambino, a pair of mint-condition 1990 Air Jordan V sneakers, a blackjack table from the defunct Stardust Casino, a 1936 Rolex watch once owned by Bernie Madoff, and a hat supposedly worn by John Wayne. That barely scratches the surface of the variety of objects brought in for appraisal. The Harrisons know a lot about pretty much everything, but when they don't, they bring in a revolving cast of experts to provide details about provenance and worth. But an item is only valuable to the Pawn Stars if someone else wants to buy it. Observing the calculating eye and the haggling skills on display is all part of the fun. The other part of the fun is the interplay between the shop's staff, which is played almost entirely for laughs and rarely feels extemporaneous. But even though some moments may be scripted, the Harrisons have been at it long enough to make it work--for the cameras and their wallets. --Ted Fry

"Pawn Stars" is quite a remarkable program. Although it's of the "reality show" genre, I find it continually engaging. It's the only thing left of the History Channel that actually involves some discussion of history. The remainder of the the History Channel consists of "red necks" shooting alligators. The show manages to capture a range of topics including the trials and tribulations of running a family business and the pawn business itself. Each curiosity brought into the shop is a kind of adventure and that's where the show gets its appeal. In addition, the Pawn Stars themselves, the customers, and the expert advisers are a great collection of eccentrics that can only be found in a place like Las Vegas. It's one of my favorite TV shows.

I just needed to watch some so that I could go to sleep. The show as everything that is "reality" these days is contrived and scripted. The producers have to judge what will be interesting, check out the seller to see that something will not come back as embarrassing. The seller is always willing to wait for the "expert" to determine the value, then the dickering goes on. Finally each side comes up or down or little and the deal is done. The only way that the History Channel can call this history is the little knowledge that is imparted during the appraisal-Big Deal.

Good show...actually the BEST of the Pawn shows available. But since Amazon doesn't see fit to allow me to watch it via my Prime account, I cannot justify spending what they want just to watch an episode. Guess, I'll just have to do without....there are plenty of other equally good shows which I can watch via Prime streaming.

I love this show for several reasons.

First, I'm amazed at the variety of things people want to pawn or sell, and the little lessons that go along with establishing their worth. You never know what's going to come through the door.

Second, the characters are amazing, real or not, scripted or not. In one sense it's like watching wrestling, because the cameras take some "candid" shots that surely are staged. That doesn't matter to me, because it strengthens the story line of the four principal characters. Sometimes it's like watching a dysfunctional family, but occasionally there are glimmers of affection that show through.

Third, the process of negotiating a price for each item is interesting. It reminds me of the general rule of haggling: given you know something's value, and recognizing that the shop exists to make money, decide on the least amount you are willing to accept, and start higher. They'll have an idea of the top range they're willing to pay. The idea is not to leave money on the table. And do your homework.

Fourth, I like Rick's attitude about sellers: "I don't trust anybody." It isn't personal. He can't know until he knows.

Fifth, it makes me want to see the place in person. The next time I'm in Vegas I'll definitely stop by. And what a wonderful hook for an impulse buyer like me.

I recommend the show.

Pawn stars always rocks! Rick, Corey, Chumlee &: Old Man. I think Rick is the most savvy, but I most identify w/ Old Man ('cause I'm an old grouch, too); Chumlee looks and acts like a dullard, but is actually quite intelligent. Not only "you never know WHAT gonna come through that door", but you also never know WHO is gonna come through that door. Vegas attracts all types.

After launching the incomplete Pawn Stars Season 3 (deviously named "Volume 3") with only 16 episodes, the marketing blunder continues with the impending release of 16 Pawn Stars Season 4 episodes on 2 DVD's.

I purchased the first two full season Pawn Stars sets and fell in love with the show. Subsequent to my own purchase, I ordered three additional sets from Amazon for delivery to friends and relatives, generating four sales of the same two full season DVD sets. Negative reviews from others prompted me to delay buying Volume 3 until the producers elected to release the full 3rd season in one DVD set, as they had done for the first two seasons. This has not happened, nor does it seem likely since season / volume 4 is now following the same poor business plan as Pawn Stars season 3 did.

In an effort to entice the producers to release full-season versions of Pawn Stars DVD sets, I contacted History Channel via their web site. After two weeks had passed, their generic reply stated that "...my inquiry was important to them and has been sent to the relevant sales department for a response". An update never came so clearly my bu$ine$$ and customer satisfaction wasn't important nor relevant to History Channel. After all, they have a top show with Pawn Stars and clearly they could care less whether the fans can complete a collection of the full DVD seasons or not.

At this juncture I must point out that I reside overseas, in a geographic location that prevents me from buying the Pawn Stars episodes that are offered as downloads.
