Product Description

Product Description

The history of money-lending dates back thousands of years. Long before the HISTORY hit series PAWN STARS, pawnbrokers helped people make ends meet by providing loans in exchange for personal items of value. 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. In this collection, the boys haggle over a penny made by Paul Revere, battle plans for Iwo Jima, a 1939 Allied Forces World War II plane and a human shrunken head.

PAWN STARS VOLUME 3 includes sixteen fan-favorite episodes on two discs.

DISC 1: Trail Breaker / Top Secret / Whale of a Time / Gold Diggers / Aw Shucks! / Deals From Hell / Chumlee's Dummies / Strike, Spare, BOOM

DISC 2: Message in a Bottle / Rough Riders / Phoning It In / Moon Walking / Peeping Pawn / Ace in the Hole / Double Trouble / Getting A Head

Amazon.com

Apparently some loyal followers of the three-generation Harrison clan, owners of the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas and stars of the History Channel's certified hit Pawn Stars, thought there was a little false advertising with this third DVD collection. Unlike the season one and season two releases, Pawn Stars: Volume Three is not a compilation collection, rather it's a selection of 16 "fan favorites" culled from the 26 episodes of season three. Yes, completists may feel a little disgruntled, but in this case a little less may be better, especially since the show runs on what is now a pretty formulaic engine. But not to worry, there are still plenty of beloved moments with boss Rick Harrison, his dad "Old Man" Harrison, his son "Big Hoss," the knuckleheaded yet lovable lardo "Chumlee," and all those potential suckers who haggle, bargain, and plead, walking away with cash in their pockets and dollar signs still dancing in their eyes. Antiques Roadshow in Vegas or Antiques Roadshow on crack remain appropriate shorthands to describe the show's premise. Watching truly is something that becomes habit-forming regardless of one's interest in historic artifacts, novelty and pop culture relics, or unusual ephemera that has some value to somebody (maybe). Even though the formula doesn't really change, as a reality TV concept Pawn Stars is an easy sell. A customer looking to discard the unusual stuff that's been lingering in the attic or garage approaches the counter at the G&S Pawn superstore and talks about it with one or more members of the Harrison family. Nobody's looking for a loan or hocking their wedding ring so they can get back to the slot machines; this is all about the cash. Rick is pretty much the star and he seems to have a wealth of knowledge about whatever the for-sale item is. In Volume Three the objects are pretty much the same mix of war memorabilia, motorized vehicles of whatever sort, coins, autographs, documents, and shrunken heads. The customer is interviewed before and after about their dealmaking experience, while in between Rick or Old Man or Hoss gives a mini-history lesson about whatever's on the counter, complete with graphics that fill us in on history, facts, and trivia. This certainly doesn't qualify Pawn Stars as educational, mind you, but it does cast a sleek line to viewers who are easily reeled in by the debates over what is often some very cool junk. There is a level of drama as tensions rise with the eye-to-eye negotiations. Rick's attempts to lowball the customer while the customer sweats and stalls in anguish are nice little climaxes. In spite of their near-encyclopedic knowledge, Rick or one of the others will frequently call in one of their expert friends to confirm provenance or give him some sense of value. The show's pace is always lively, even in the hokey, scripted bits of comic business that go on between the boys--usually at the expense of resident fool Chumlee. Everyone is comfortable with the camera and eager to amplify their personality with war stories about the business and boastful anecdotes about their acumen or psychological prowess in bargaining with the marks who come into the store. It's a gimmick that has made checking in with the cast of Pawn Stars a genuine pleasure, and may send you to digging out that old sword or unframing that dusty picture as you imagine the bundles of greenbacks waiting for you in Las Vegas. --Ted Fry

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on October 8, 2011
Format: DVD
First things first. The third season of the popular History Channel program "Pawn Stars" is being listed here on Amazon as The Complete Season Three (as of 10/8/11). To clarify the contents of this 2 disc set, it is NOT the full season. It is being marketed as Volume Three not Season Three--just look at the DVD cover if you have any doubts. It is a bit misleading as both of the first two seasons were packaged and sold in their entirety, so if you bought one or both of them--you might be fooled into thinking this was similar. "Pawn Stars: Volume Three" consists of the first sixteen episodes of the year dubiously labeled as Fan Favorites (there were 28 episodes in the complete season). As a completist, this sales ploy is disheartening. If you want to release Season Three on DVD then release all of Season Three on DVD! Here are the titles included:

(1) Trail Breaker, (2) Top Secret, (3) Whale of a Time, (4) Gold Diggers, (5) Aw Shucks!, (6) Deals From Hell, (7) Chumlee's Dummies, (8) Strike, Spare, Boom, (9) Message in a Bottle, (10) Rough Riders, (11) Phoning It In, (12) Moon Walking, (13) Peeping Pawn, (14) Ace in the Hole, (15) Double Trouble, and (16) Getting A Head.

Now a little about the show in case there are any newbies. As the History Channel has evolved to include reality programs with only a tenuous link to actual history, its slate is filled with a number of reality shows (American Pickers, Top Shot, Larry the Cable Guy). "Pawn Stars" is the highest rated show in the network's history. Many of the items traded may or may not have historical significance (that is its link to the history format), and often times we'll be treated to some type of informative discourse.

After buying the first 2 FULL seasons on DVD I figured I could trust that this item was actually a full season. I would not have bought this half season had I known this was what was advertised.

I love the show it self, and couldn't wait to have my own copy of Season 3, but this is the "best" of season 3. This was advertised incorrectly.

yep, like they did with American Pickers Season 2 History Channel decided to release Pawn Stars as a "Volume" for Season 3 instead of an entire Season 3. WHY?? I've tried getting an answer out of them in regards to Pickers so I doubt they'd be any more forthcoming in regards to this show. I was looking forward to buying the Complete new Seasons of Pickers & Pawn Stars this month but I'll be saving my money instead.. seriously, who makes these decisions and why??

Buyer Beware !

The cover art says "Volume Three" - the text says "The Complete Season Three"

Episode count doesn't = entire season worth of episodes !

Great show, Just beware that this is not the whole season 3 like the first 2 they came out with this is just a few of the shows. So save your money and look for the whole season else where.

We are Pawnaholics & always watch the show. But it does get annoying when there are only 2 Disc sets & these are a continuation of 2010's beginning with Trail Breaker & ending with Getting a Head (with that sweet Buick Skylark!) Writing A&E & History are a waste of time as they never respond. Be that as it may as we say: if you enjoy the show, you'll Luv these classics!

I enjoy watching Pawn Stars, I collect antiques and find the variety of stuff that comes through their doors is interesting. Of course it's television so I'm aware that it's a entertainment production and have no great illusions otherwise.

Last year I met the Lady who was selling the Car in a particular episode. She's from Chapin and a lot of class. She told me about the trip to Vegas and the story behind the sale. I decided to watch that episode and found it amusing.
