ManateeGag: did watching Darrel Sheets get shafted on the magic cards he found.


Oh that was funny. I was watching with my wife and calling out names of the cards and prices when he found them. Dude got shafted BIG TIME, he would have gotten 3-4X as much if he had taken them to a convention or something.

To be fair, on THAT show, there is a disclaimer that 80-90% of the stuff they buy is trash, and the show chronicles their most interesting and rare finds.

I was buying and selling storage units when this show came on the air, and I hate it. It ruined a perfectly entertaining way to make a few extra bucks.

You would bid and buy against the same group of a dozen or so people in the caravan, eBay the shiat out of some stuff, and either donate or dump most of it, and it was a good time.

Then this show came on the air, and all of a sudden there are a hundred goddamn people in the storage caravan, none of whom know WTF they're doing, driving the prices of everything through the roof. You really want to pay $200 for that stack of wet cardboard boxes? OK lady, I guess you saw it on TV.

Same thing happened with extreme couponing. My mother used to get triple coupon days + rewards etc and end up feeding my family for pennies on the dollar growing up. Now that show came along and stores slashed their policies so that it's not nearly as cost effective as it once was. It still saves her money but these schmucks buy 2 metric tons of toothpaste for 3$ and ruin it for everyone.

ManateeGag: yeah, I love what they are doing with Pawn Stars and trying to create a Paul Sr/Paul Jr. scenario.


That is such horseshiat. Nobody in their right mind would hire that dumbass to scrub a toilet. He's even terrible at negotiating prices and has no idea what a lot of stuff is worth. I know every ounce of "drama" on that show is manufactured, so if I'm watching it on DVR I skip from item appraisal to item appraisal.

I like Comic Book Men because I used to work in a comic book store and while I never really was much of a collector, I have some favorites.

2012-12-04 02:19:08 PM  
Well, I mean, come on. Of course it's fake.

The four official teams are always surrounded by a hundred or so other "bidders." By now, the show has been on long enough that everyone there knows who they are and what they're doing. How could they ever win another auction? Someone crowd would take it away from them every single time, just for shiats and giggles and bragging rights. One of the characters would bid $10 and the random extras would have bid it up to $1000 before another character could say "$20."

The other dead giveaway is resale professionals acting as though there's any point whatsoever in bidding the other guy up and making him pay more, unless you're in cahoots with the auctioneer. It's not even close to a zero-sum game. I don't know about the storage locker game, but in certain other kinds of auctions, the auction company would throw your ass out for even joking about doing something like that.

LeafyGreens: Dad told me this over thanksgiving holiday, since he & mom live in the town where Cajun Pawn Stars is filmed. Jimmy Deramus, the guy that owns the pawn store, offered to buy a rail car from a guy that works for a museum. Dad's on the board of the museum, and they filmed that entire show at the same museum.

Jimmy offers the guy $5k for the car, the guy agrees. Afterwards, no money or titles changed hands, nobody bought or sold anything. The only thing happening is the crew is filming a story to get people to watch. The amounts could be 100x as much for all the meaning they have.

The people involved have to sign an NDA, but small Southern town gossip > any NDA in the world.


I got family down there myself. A now-deceased familial relation of mine was a prominent citizen in that town for decades, and I was the inheritor of his 1911 he took through the pacific campaign. We were contacted by the show to bring it in, similar to the traincar, for an expose. We declined however, but I do give them credit for espousing local history.

We had two different 'reality' shows taped at our Level 1 trauma center in New Orleans. The trauma was always real enough; but almost everything else was complete fabrication. Asshole MD's and RN's who often had little more than contempt for their indigent, 'urban' population could not wait to glam up and hog camera time to deliver unfelt soliloquies on the state of inner-city crime, drunk driving, and street violence. Fark all 'reality' TV in the arse. It is the worst. That, and the 'talent shows' are making America stupider by the minute.

miss jinxed: as someone who used to work on reality TV and has transcribed hours and hours and hours of footage of reality TV shows, I can tell you that close to 90% of what happens on reality TV is fake. It is a mix prodding by the producer or director to have cast members say or do certain things, having things "placed" on set, and/or creative editing.

the reason all that footage is transcribed is so editors can go through the transcriptions to find a certain word or phrase, then insert it in when needed, that is also why there are confessionals that cut away to action, so that you can't tell that the person speaking isn't saying entirely what they are saying.

reality TV is super cheap to make, particularly because the people on the show aren't union actors (like they would be in scripted drama) and most of the crew doesn't have to be union. i'm not saying this is a bad thing necessarily, but working in "legit" TV now has really taught me how crappy reality productions are on so many levels.


No shiat sherlock. I didn't need you to tell me any of that. It's obvious. Tell us something we don't know about "reality TV." The bottom line is that many people find reality TV to be entertaining and they buy into the reality myth because they enjoy it.

These guys have ruined a particular business model that involves a lot of sweat and work and risk by making it look easy and profitable.

It used to be you could pick up a packed storage locker for $100-$150 bucks, and it would be you and five other guys looking for inventory for your flea market stall, antique mall space, or consignment stores. Now it's you and five hundred guys looking for jackpot lockers, thousand dollar bids on stalls with a household worth of goods you'd be spending a week moving out and a month unloading.

Of course it's fake. The companies do it because it makes money, that's the reason it's on TV.

Everyone knows it's fake, and everyone knows that making money is all that matters. Everyone accepts that everything on TV is fiction or staged. It's done to make a profit, it's not a secret.

And yet, some still insist that sports are "real".

Bolded for emphasis.

It blows me away how many people in this thread think that anything, ANYTHING at all on the reality shows they watch isn't completely set up and constructed to run in just the way that the producers want.

If there were any real element of danger, the show's insurance would make it impossible.

If there were real conflict between cast members, you wouldn't be able to guarantee production of a whole season.

I'm not saying they can't be enjoyed, but please understand that it's all faked for your entertainment. If it weren't it wouldn't be entertaining.

Agreed - they filmed MTVs "The Real World" here in town this year. The cast actually worked at the bar across from my place so I got to know them fairly well. I watched the "action" happen first hand and even hung out with a few of the guys with the cameras around going out on the town. I'm very interested in how the story will change from the fairly benign drinking and chilling into hi-drama. Even talking to the local producers they were planning on making some of the cast the 'hero' and others the 'villain' based on editing. They would prompt the cast to do things they didn't really want to do to enhance the drama. I wasn't really impressed but one of the girls was super hot. Of course she used to work at Hooter's in AZ.

Right after this show came on the air, I watched three or four lockers full of household goods go for upwards of $500. I'm like "Lady, you know that most of the shiat in this locker is shiat, right? It's someone's sheets and Tupperware, right? Most of it is going to Goodwill, right? If it wasn't crap, it wouldn't be in a storage locker. You know that? WTF ARE YOU DOING?!!"

One of the characters would bid $10 and the random extras would have bid it up to $1000 before another character could say "$20."


It does happen; they just don't show it. Brandi addressed it in a print interview and said that this was an issue starting in Season 2. People would show up at the auctions and bid up to ridiculous levels because they apparently had never heard of editing and thought that winning a locker would get them on television.

On a related note, they always film one extra segment on Undercover Boss that they don't use in the final production. If you watch the final portion of the show (with the assembled employees) you'll always see someone standing in with the group of selected employees. It seems that it's usually a minority (*insert shocked face here*) that gets cut from the show.
 
2012-12-04 02:56:07 PM  
The thing that always bothered me about the show is their estimations of value. You're looking at a used five year old Sony receiver and they're saying it's 200 bucks. Mid line receiver, no HDMI, no remote, etc, you'd be lucky to get 100 bucks. For things I could price out they're high. I'm guessing other stuff they over estimate also.

2012-12-04 02:58:47 PM  
The one on Spike TV, with Alan and Ton (i don't remember the show's name offhand and don't feel like looking it up) had a special at the end of the first season. They specifically said that maybe 1 in every 10 lockers they bought had anything of value. And maybe 1 in every 10 of those had something good enough to put on TV. So basically for every "Oh my god, look at what we found!!" locker you'd see on TV, there were 99 lockers that you didn't see. But their show wasn't about the loser lockers, it was about the 1% that had something great.

Mugato: I only watched two reality shows in my life, Face/Off because I'm in movies and it's about movie make up artists but then it started getting all dramatic like you see in the American Idol commercials. So I quit that. Then Comic Book Men but I'm starting to realize they're all a collection of douchebags.

But yeah, all reality shows are bullshiat.


Comic Book Men pisses me off to no end. And it's RIDICULOUSLY staged. I live nearby and used to frequent that shop for years--at least once a month, if not more--for over a decade. Mike is there 90% of the time. I have seen Walt a handful of times and Ming maybe twice. (Oddly, I've seen Bryan there a bunch of times but just assumed he was homeless and Mike was being a nice guy). The store is usually dead. Even on Wednesdays (new comic book day), there are MAYBE 2 or 3 people in the store at any one time. Nobody has ever come in to have anything appraised. It's not a bad shop and I've never had a problem there.

But goddammit, the way they treat customers on that show and talk about them behind their backs! Fine, you guys want to be douchebags, especially to the girls, fark you. I'll go to the shop in Toms River.

/The zombie episode was the last straw. "Don't give the flyer to her! She's wearing Uggs & has a Coach bag--she's not our demographic!"
//Fark you, assholes. We goddamn well ARE your demographic! Who else do you think can afford a $50/week comic habit like "Ugg-wearing, Coach-carrying" chicks?

I never lost money on a locker and I've ended up with everything from motorcycles to meth labs. I wasn't trying to make a living at it, though, so I had the benefit of time to liquidate. There's some queues you can take to decide if you're going to bid or not.

1. Is there anything obvious?
2. Understand that 90% of what you buy is going to be disposed of, so have a disposal plan.
3. How is shiat packed? Is it crumbled cardboard boxes? That's garbage. Is it nicely packed and stacked plastic tubs? Whoever put it there wanted to protect whatever is inside.
4. Is the unit itself neatly stacked? Poor trash that got their trailer repoed will throw shiat in last second. People looking to keep grandma and grandpa's stuff around will put it away nicely.
5. Are you surrounded by morons or professionals? Morons will drive the price of crap up, making it not worth the risk. Pros will drive the price of good stuff up, so bid accordingly. Learn who is who.

No Line For Beer: People would show up at the auctions and bid up to ridiculous levels because they apparently had never heard of editing and thought that winning a locker would get them on television.


Even so, the bid sequences are mostly two or three of the official characters going up in regular intervals. I just don't see a hundred other people sitting quietly on their hands when the "celebrity" bidders are going head-to-head. So either the auctions are fair and the "bidding" is staged after the fact to conform to the script ("Oooh, Darryl got outfoxed by Dave again!" but really it was just Dave bidding against a hundred mooks), or they have special show-only auctions that the other attendees are allowed to watch but not participate in.

I'm not really complaining; it's as good a way to waste half an hour as any. But I'm not sure why they're trying to pretend it's real.

If there were real conflict between cast members, you wouldn't be able to guarantee production of a whole season.

I'm not saying they can't be enjoyed, but please understand that it's all faked for your entertainment. If it weren't it wouldn't be entertaining.


CSS: A friend of mine was on Four Weddings (hers was the Halloween Wedding where the guests all went to a haunted house after the reception). During every interview aired for the show, she said the producers kept asking the same questions, trying to get a very specific answer from her. Since she was the oldest of the 4 brides (mid-30s where the others were 20-somethings), they decided she'd be the "bitter, catty one". And she absolutely refused to play ball. The producers then did a quick huddle and came back again with slightly re-worded questions, now intent on making her the "stuck-up biatch". At that point, after being trapped in the interview for over 2 hours, she did whatever they told her, just to get away from them. She likened it to a police interrogation.

Another friend is an extra--she's shown up in a laundry list of shows & commercials (and is on the set of Elementary right now). She's also been a dinner guest on Hell's Kitchen, sat for a tattoo in NY Ink, ordered a cake on Cake Boss, and a couple of stints on The Apprentice (usually part of the crowd buying whatever the contestants are hawking), She recently did Restaurant Stakeout but isn't allowed to tell which restaurant until it airs.
