    Pretty entertaining show. The old man cracks me up. He and Chum Lee are great supporting characters.

    I couldn't believe they didn't fire that girl for showing up late again. I think Chumley is a idiot, they keep him around to be a ginnypig is all. The hotrod was a great deal though.
    I been watching the show from the begining. There have been some good deals and some stupid deals IMHO. Its a good summer show.

    Just caught a couple of episodes of this and it is interesting. Their pawn shop is nothing like any I've been in. Once you get past the BS they do for TV, the things brought in and the restoration they seem to do on a number of items is interesting.

    I love the people who try to cash in stuff and when the money isn't enough, suddenly they tell the cameras it's a treasured fairly heirloom that will be passed on. Like the woman with the worthless piece of the Berlin Wall. What was she thinking? I remember those being sold in K-Mart and on TV.

    I've recorded ten so far. I'm not sure how many I am missing though, because I didn't start watching until it was already on for a little while.

    The latest episode was hilarious with Corey using Chumley as resource for his pawn shop knowledge test given by his father. Chumley idiot savant! :)

    I think ElJay is correct with 10. I did a quick search on Mininova and it shows 10 eps available with Rick's Big Bet just being released today.

    Love that the new season started! I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was inside that chest!

    You would think if anything was in there they would hear it rattle.

    The only episode I liked Chum Lee in was when he flew the kite.

    The mechanism on the chest was pretty interesting.

    I just knew that kite was going to end up on the pole, but I couldn't stop watching.:)

    The Old Man just cracks me up. Did he really not get the Shelby over 20mph?

    I think it's a pretty entertaining show. Glad it's back for a second season.

    Chum Lee was hilarious when he was going on about the Imperial that they'd "sold" for $1000. "The guy that bought it is going to put some hydraulics on it."

    That car is a sweet ride. Not a super fan of all the 'classics' but I'd ride with that top down in that thing anywhere. I don't think Old Man really ever believed the car was sold. I'm sure if he did he would call the purchaser buy it back.

    I caught a marathon of this the other night and found it very interesting. It was like antique roadshow with a capitalistic bent to it.

    Some of the stuff people bring in is very interesting.

    I set up a SP for it.

    And Rick looks like Michael Chiklis to me.

    I've always wondered how a pawn shop operates. Like, if I'm looking for a Rolex, are pawn shops a viable option in order to save some cash on one? Or, will a pawn shop mark it up significantly?

    And, what happens to the people who pawn something. Do they know if an item has sold? Or, do they just go back to reclaim it, only to find it gone?

    Also, how does one get into the pawning business? Like, how do you build your inventory? Start with an empty store and a mound of cash?

    You can either Pawn something (get a loan with an item as collateral). If you do this you get a set amount of time to pay the money back, you also pay interest. If you default they keep the item and have the right to sell it. Or you can just sell them your item to them and they can immediately sell it.
