    TV people really are stupid......I don't mind product placement but at least attempt to make it work in the storyline! I could think of a dozen different ways to get Subway in there without making me want to throw up watching it!

    How can I help you?

    I have a $5 foot long meatball sub from Subway.

    Are you looking to pawn it or sell it?

    I think I want to sell it.

    How much do you want for it?

    Seeing as I paid $5 for it, I'd like $5.

    That's not gonna happen.

    Why not?

    I gotta heat it up, then maybe I can sell it for $5. I'll give you $1 for it.

    I can't take any less than $3.

    I'll go $1.25, but that's as high as I can go.

    OK, I'll take $1.25. [they shake hands]

    OK, let's go do some paperwork.

    [Outside] I'm happy. I think I got a good price. I'm going to put this money towards a down payment on an Oscar Mayer baloney sandwich.

    I'm not sure the premise of this show, as I'm about to watch my first episode tonight. But, I just got an email that my friend's son (Tim) is on the show tonight and has to pretend he knows nothing about gliders. In fact, he is a professional glider instructor in Vegas. Makes me think everything you think you know about this show is wrong.

    Not everything is based on a novel by Sapphire.

    yes, totally fake. And you can tell he is faking. He pretends to have no knowledge about how much gliders are worth. He is an instructor at the school that fixed it up for the shop owner.

    Makes me question all the reality in my reality shows.:D

    One of these statements is correct, and one is very wrong :)

    I think we all were under the impression that the show was very staged/fake.

    Which is the opposite of "Makes me think everything you think you know about this show is wrong."

    Unlike the auto reposession show (this channel or perhaps tru tv, I'm not sure) this one really is not staged. That stupid repo show is staged.

    Yeah, first time I remember seeing him. He sure was ready to bounce that nasty little guy with the fake statue thingy. Too bad Rick told him to back off. That would have been entertaining!:D Actually I was surprised that the old man was so nice and explained in a reasonable tone to the guy that the statue wasn't for them.

    Ugh. You aren't kidding. I made it through one episode of that stupid show. SO, so staged.

    I'm sure this one's staged to an extent, too. But not to the ludicrous level that one is.

    Let's face it... All reality TV is staged. Who would want to watch "real" reality TV? How boring would that be?

    I like this show and American Pickers for what they are. Shows with cool old stuff on them.

    Don't they say it's re-created at the beginning of the show?

    That said the big guy in the overalls sure gets beat up by the smallest people.
