    This was just another reality show setup.......... George S was sent there to do a segment for GMA which aired a couple weeks ago, he didn't just walk into the pawn shop as a customer as they pretended.

    along those lines... ever notice on "Hardcore Pawn" that the customers that cause problems and get thrown out are wearing microphone packs?

    Well, to be fair, EVERYTHING on truTV is fake, which is pretty ridiculous, since their whole premise is that it's real!

    I put this segment in the same category as their other "end of the show" segments, where it clearly is not real, and is just meant to add some humor.

    I'll take that over a 5 minute discussion on the deliciousness of a Subway breakfast.

    Has anyone noticed that Chumlee's hair is different lengths in the segment when he goes "off-site" to look at something? When he's at the place with the "rocky horse" ride, his hair looks cut like a pageboy (although he's wearing a hat, so it's a little hard to tell). At another offsite (when they were shooting the cane/rifle, his hair is cut quite short. Looks good on him! Then, whenever they have shots back at the store, it's the greasy, straggly hair we're used to. These different hair lengths messmess with continuity.

    Does anyone believe that Chumlee really bought that mandolin for $1,500?

    Not anymore than Cory traded one of those posters for free framing, or that the guy wanted the poster so bad he'd frame the others for free.

    These fake scenarios are really starting to make me dislike these shows.
    I LOVED them when they started, but now. Ugh.

    These guys aren't good enough at acting to pull off the fake bits and it's painfully obvious.

    American Restoration is the worst. I can't even watch it. The Pickers guys are better, but they're little vingnettes tend to be less corny.

    Disagree. Rick's son deserves an EMMY.

    An EMMY, I tell you!

    or that the Old Man sold the other poster -- <cynicism>I had no idea there was that much demand for old pawn shop themed movie posters that no one's heard of </cynicism>

    Its getting almost as bad as that repo show on truTV.

    I would bet he bought it off camera and they decided to recreate it.

    Only if you think someone that works for a Pawn shop would blindly pay for an item he knows nothing about. And suddenly everyone else in the shop disappeared.

    I really want to buy that rainbow colored print of George Washigton from the dollar bill that they show in the opening credits. I wonder if they still have it?

    I just discovered this show a few weeks back. I've gone to the websites to catch up on older shows.

    It's definitely better than Hardcore Pawn, which I also discovered, but the scripted stuff is getting old.

    wow, now American Pickers is doing product placement. Happened to catch it during channel flipping and they just happen to stop by a KFC for a quick bite, of course KFC was one of the commercials during the break.

    Also ran across this story earlier today about Chumlee's B-day bash.
