    We've caught a handful of these. Do they ever show them selling the stuff the buy? I think that would be very interesting. He always talks about being able to make a profit on things, I would love to see if he does.

    I've never seen them sell an item they bought, but there was a show recently that revealed the profit made on some of the items they've bought.

    If anyone watched the Christmas special on the 21st, was it all new material or a clip show?

    Also, is it just me, or have there been a LOT of new episodes lately (at least according to my guide data)? There was the Christmas ep on the 21st followed by two more new eps, then two MORE new ones on the 27th.

    One of the later episodes around Christmas would show an item they bought during the season and how much they sold it for.

    I like this show but I'm a bit disappointed at what appears to be "staged" events. Luke Chumley breaking the cabinet with the ball and chain. The camera just happened to be on him at that moment?

    I think a lot of the stuff in the show is staged - like at the end of the episode when the potty-chair fell out of the truck. Pretty much anything that doesn't involve a customer I assume is a set up.

    They may be keeping those camera on more than we think. It doesn't have any film costs, anything they don't like, they just erase.

    It was definitely staged, that was window glass that broke, tempered glass is used on the tops of showcases. I would say 80-90% of the show is staged.

    I just had to remove a bunch of episodes on 1/11 that were scheduled. I have my Season Pass set up for First Run Only but these had generic descriptions so they ended up on my To Do List.

    I'll have to check their web page and see if I can find out when the next new episodes will broadcast.

    I like the show, but I easily tire of the staged things and what seems like memorized lines.

    I don't think Chumly is actually Hoss's childhood friend. I bet he's just an actor hired for the show.

    Scratch that. Not just an actor, but a Master Thespian!

    Man, he's terrible, isn't he? Almost to the unbelievable point.

    That's what I think, too. He can't be THAT stupid. I don't know if he's an actor but he's definitely playing up the stupid factor for entertainment value. I'm ok with that. I think he's hilarious.

    I loved when he made the wine and added wine for color.

    I'd love to see some behind the scene stuff on how they sell this stuff. They can't just be waiting for a 1 in a million collector to come in and buy. I think it would be neat to see them tracking down buyers.

    I read on another forum that Chumlee is actually fairly intelligent, and it's all an act.

    I absolutely love the old man. He reminds me so much of my dad. The prank they pulled on him about the Continental as great. I loved when Chum Lee gave the old man a coin off of his desk wrapped as a Christmas present.
