Jun 26, 2013It's difficult to explain my love for Pawn Stars. From the outside, it may just look like any old dumb reality/educational show. However, after watching a few episodes, you finally realize what it's all about.
Day after day, you find yourself watching more and more episodes to the point where you recite the entire theme-song/intro without thinking twice. Eventually, you realize that you've lost all your real friends. Instead, you have only one new friend: Chumlee.
Pawn Stars becomes your new identity as it slowly draws you in. One day, you'll realize that you cannot live without it. You pray by it, worship the old man, and constantly answer the trivia questions before commercial breaks. It takes over.
The only issue with this show is the effect it has had. Now, there are so many pawn-related shows that it's ridiculous. Hardcore Pawn, Hardcore Pawn: Chicago, Cajun Pawn Stars... ugh. The list goes on.
Also, Big Hoss is kind of a douche.
This show is pretty awesome. I'd recommend it to most people.… Full Review »
Nov 16, 2011This show is awful, and is a perfect example of what's wrong with TV.
A reality show is only interesting if the premise is out of the ordinary, like those guys that fought illegal whaling on the high seas... not something you see every day. But watching regular schmucks working at a pawn shop? Are you kidding me? Could you possibly come up with a more lame idea? What's next, people that work at a supermarket? No one in their right mind could enjoy watching average people doing average things. YAAAAAAWWWWN.
What makes it worse is that it is on the History Channel, taking up a time slot from what should be a documentary on actual history.… Full Review »
