    I just really don't like this show. I always have to watch it because it seems to be on but I just don't like it I find the anecdotes annoying to say the least.
    What are everyone else's thoughts?

    It's like a lot of the shows on TV these days. I think for the most part, they're just re-enactments of events from the experiences of the business owners.

    I quite like Pawn Stars. Some of the stuff that comes into their store is pretty cool for its history (and that's coming from an Aussie point of view). Not like Hardcore Pawn, which is more about the drama/conflicts that take place between the family who own the store. Hardcore Pawn feels a lot more scripted and is very badly acted out...

    It's okay, I hate the one with the pawnshop in Detroit. It's so totally fake. They pay those people to look like fools.

    Its an okay show for what it is. In general I'm not a fan of "reality" shows as I find them to be pretty predictable and boring. I think they're just as staged as dramas are, for the most part. Nonetheless I find it a pretty entertaining show when I watch it, which is not that often.

    I think shows in general have gone a little too far with the gag comedy and no reality what so ever.
