    Because he only authenticates and never gives values?

    Something tells me following Mark around a museum all day would not be very exciting.

    I watched the first episode tonight an enjoyed it. It did not stray too far from the Pawn Stars, American Restoration formula. It definitely had less (and by less I mean none) of the staged Drama/Confilct between the employees of the shop and that is a good thing.

    It really has more in common with American Restoration in that they had two projects and the 20 minute running time of the show means you see little if any of the actual work. Last night they did a great custom paint job on a bike and restored the car Rick had just purchased on Pawn Stars.

    Personally I wasn't a fan of the first episode. That whole initial bit with them driving around car hunting bothered me for some reason.

    The tatoo bike paint job was impressive, but it went from zero to painted without any real screen time. Same deal with the mustang. Love what they did with it, but beyond a minute of finding out how bad the interior was, we didn't see anything.

    (But that's been my issue with American Restoration for a while now. They've been downplaying or hiding the actual work; which is what I'd prefer to see)

    I'll probably give this another episode, but I'm thinking it's probably not the show for me.

    Oops. Forgot to setup the SP. I have one now and I'll let you guys know what I think. Certainly sounds like something I'd like. ;)

    Agreed, just like AR I'd like to see more of the actual work.

    Ohhh, yeah! Let's have more shots of sanding, painting, stringing wiring harnesses, pounding out minor dents, replacing upholstery.............!

    That would be some great TV

    I love it. It's right up my alley. :)

    I'm hoping this show is still introducing characters and will ramp up some more of the work as we go along. I'm surprised to say this, but this show could almost be an hour and still be pretty interesting.

    I just started watching this weekend. I'm shocked, but I'm really liking this show. It's great seeing some of these old muscle cars restored.

    I used to like Overhaulin' because they showed a lot of the actual restoration. But even they showed too much drama and not enough restoration.

    Yea, I probably should have said 'restored muscle cars' rather than 'muscle cars restored'.
