Do Not Knock It Until You Try It

I really enjoy watching what Garry calls "trash" shows. And when we're talking about trash we are not talking about soap operas. We're talking about real trash -- Hoarders, Buried Alive, Animal Hoarders, I will watch them all.
But recently I have stumbled upon the History Channel's "Pawn Stars". I really enjoy this show -- watching what people are trying to negotiate and the price and the history of the items that come in, and I LOVE it when someone brings in a fake and they get called on it. Though sometimes it's by accident. Yesterday we saw a show where a man brought in a gun he bought for $800 and the gun expert said that it was a reproduction worth $75. Oh, and this kid tried to sell a playbill from Ford's Theater from the night that Lincoln was shot, and it was a fake. He thought that he was going to make $10,000.
Anyway, I digress. Garry was convinced that this was another 'trash show' but wouldn't you know that I came downstairs today and he was watching it? Don't knock it until you try it!

Sylvia beat me to the punch. Storage Wars in a fun one to watch! McKay wants me to go bid on a unit . . . . . NOT!

I'm totally addicted, too! I love that show. I thought it was a trash show but then I got hooked. It's funny watching what desperate people in Vegas will take for an item...or what they spent for it originally!
