    I would like to see a spin-off with Rick Dale and his son doing all their restoration stuff.

    I was in Vegas last week and was walking down the road when I came across their store.
    I assume they must've been filming inside, based on the crowd that was lined up to go in.

    A friend of mine went a few months ago and got in. They only let so many at a time in. The only cast member he saw was the old man.

    Have any of you checked out "American Pickers" on History Channel? You might like that one too. :)

    I'd believe that Rick is pretty smart - but I also believe that Corey is about as smart as a brick. He's got to be fed lines for everything that comes in.

    I agree too. If Rick died from some tragic accident, the business would be in big trouble. The Old Man could manage to keep it going for a while, but ultimately Corey would run it into the ground.

    He seems to have a very narrow scope on things, although one of the commercial blurbs said he buys more items for the shop than anyone else.

    I think Chum-Lee is definitely smarter than he is portrayed. I don't think Corey is at the level of Rick or Old Man, but I think he knows how to buy more every-day stuff, and isn't as an expert on the stuff on the show. I am sure he and Chum work way more hours than Rick and Old Man do as well, because he is young and supposed to be learning, and why wouldn't they work less!

    There are some behind-the-scenes videos on youtube in which Chumlee talks to the camera quite a bit more intelligently than he does on the show. I really think most of the moronic things he says and does on the show are just an act.

    Yes, I saw those, and that's actually what brought me to that conclusion. The tour of the shop is an interesting one. Especially how the show cuts out the giant corner of merchandise they sell of the show, and how it even has its own seperate cash register.

    He also mentioned how the shop was looking to expand, no doubt due to their increased business from the show.

    Chumlee has been especially funny the last couple of episodes. I know some people don't like him, but I think he is funny.

    I loved the one with the moon flag where he says,
    "Or we'll give you $25 for it right now."

    or when he said to the lady with the Disney figurines:

    Do you have Bugs Bunny?

    I also liked the guy that had all the Mickey Mouse memorabilia, and Chumlee asked in a surprised voice:

    and you have a girlfriend?

    New episodes were on the other day, and ABC's Nightline did a very complimentary piece on the shop tonight.

    Yeah the other episode the lady came in with Fabrege Spider Broach and Rick was amazed by it... And she said she wanted 2k, and you could see Rick's devil horn's pop up and he said he had a conscious and offered her 15k, to which she immediately asked for 17k lol.

    To me this all seemed staged to put him in a good light. Maybe not but the spider was inside a box that said faberge. You can't tell me that she would not have popped that into google.

    she looked to be a "what is a google" kind of person. I wonder why 3/4 of these people don't sell their stuff on ebay/craigslist/internet but figure they just don't have access or knowledge of those worlds.
