offacue: If this reality show is real it could be worth a fortune but I have some issues with it. Let me call in a buddy of mine who knows all there is to know about these things and we'll see what he says and them maybe I can make you an offer on it.


Even that show is super fake. If you read RIck Harrison's own book he talks about how when he buys an item he has to hold it for 30 days before he can sell it (incase it comes up stolen). But there have been a ton of times on Pawn Stars, where they buy an item and then sell it pretty much right away, usually to one of their experts.

domo_kun_sai: abhorrent1: All reality shows are fake.

Just to make this clear "reality" shows are ALL fake and scripted. All of them. Deal with it.


When the wife and I did divorce court, all we had to do was submit talking points, which would show up on the little teleprompter in our podiums. So, partially scripted.

Nice! Yeah, a pawn shop in Vegas takes in enough historical items to make a TV show about it. Watch closely, and you'll see the same items on Pawn Stars, Rick's Restoration (whatever it's called), and American Pickers. I'm guessing History Channel has a warehouse full of stuff to pass around on those shows.

Rickenbacker: Pawn Stars, Rick's Restoration


you realize that Rick from American Restoration and Rick from Pawn Stars are like, friends? and have shops in the same town? They did spinoffs. This is not a new concept. the Kount has his own show too now, and yes, the History channel probably gets to choose which items they follow from one shop to the other (like the pedal car) but that's not the same as a warehouse full of stuff. These people got shows because they are good at their jobs, give them some freaking credit and shut up and be entertained.

TommyymmoT: simplicimus: TommyymmoT: jaylectricity: simplicimus: TommyymmoT: On the last episode I saw, one of them had taken a job as a cab driver.

Now let me get this straight, you've hardly ever driven a car in your entire life, so you figure driving a cab in Manhattan is a good place to start?

Ever been in a cab in Manhattan? The drivers ability is one of the least of your concerns.

I have to agree, because driving in Manhattan is as simple as bumper cars. You're going 5MPH and it doesn't matter if you hit another car just a little bit.

You still have to know your way around though, or else you can't take the longest route possible to run up the meter.

That's only if you leave Manhattan. The streets are numerically sequenced, the avenues are easy enough to memorize (excepting Broadway, which rambles, and the Wall Street area).

Quick, where is east end avenue?


Don't have my subway map handy, so I don't remember. Never owned a car when I lived in NYC.

Season 3 coming soon!


That was the only reality show that I've enjoyed.
/WHAT IS GOING ON?!?

I called this as soon as the ads came out. Anyone who has lived near the Amish knows they interact with the modern world, just on their own terms.

Also an Amish that's 30 and unmarried??? Bullshiat!

You stated they were all numbered streets.
I thought of streets like Canal, Rivington, Houston (BTW, how is that word pronounced in NYC>) , not to mention the fact that many fares just say their destination, like Chelsea Piers, The Homestead, etc.

Yeah, and NASA used to put men on the moon. Now it drags the shuttle through LA while gangbangers throw malt liquor bottles at it.

Pronounced How-ston. And yeah, all bets are off on numbered streets once you get past 1st street. Once you get really downtown, it gets confusing.

Wow. Settle down, Beavis. It's not a crossover episode, you will see the same items "discovered" on the other shows. I will give them (and History, and TLC) credit for pandering. The people on these shows are there because they have the personality to be characters without really "acting". There is nothing "real" on any of them. Granted, the portions of American restoration that actually show the work being done is fascinating. But following the American Chopper format, they tend to stress the "tension" between the employees. Now, let other people have opinions that are different than yours without resorting to "shut up".

I had to stop watching american restoration because of that. I mean the items that were brought in and the processes they used to restore them were really cool. But I didn't give a crap about the character the fake conflicts and characters they were trying to set up.

i don't know what you are talking about anymore, and i don't think you do either.

And that's why I like Face Off. The drama is minimal (hell, the drama king this season left in the first episode) and you get to see some really cool make up and special effects.

Amish don't pay Social Security and will not abide by Obamacare, do they got that going for them.

Not trying to claim its not staged or fake but just because it's outlawed in their community doesn't mean they don't do it. The amish and Mennonites around me were always sneaking off to get liquored, getting a public intox arrest doesn't mean he isn't amish
