Wow, really getting lazy with the storylines. the "25 year old' Fonzie photo that The Old Man supposedly gave Rick was inscribed to the guys at G&S Pawn and dated 2008.

I'm now fast-forwarding through everything that doesn't involve a customer at the counter. Makes it much better.

I haven't been able to watch for a while. I'm sure sooner or later they will be following Corey to doctor to see about his E.D.

We're also still enjoying it. I do agree with what others have said; the scripted segments in the back room are definitely growing tiresome.

That Davey Deals guy is showing up way too often lately as well.

I'm thinking the show is gasping it's last breath, at least for me, if not the network.

I agree. Too much cross promotion with the other shows. Getting bored with the car guy too.

I don't think he has his own show, but he's shown up on Pawn Stars way to many times, Counting Cars at least a couple times, and American Restoration I think as well.

Wondering if they are setting up a show for him, and trying to get his face/name out there to the viewing public?

Me too. The forced interactions they have between pawn items are painful to watch.

I really enjoy when rare book consultant Rebecca Romney shows up. She is very easy on the eyes. They could do a whole show with her and I'd be happy.

I enjoy her, too. She's very knowledgeable and professional. I loved how she put the man in his place (he brought in the re-bound book that contained the constitution) when he said to her "Well, that's just your opinion". She was nice but firm, basically saying 'yes, that IS my opinion--which was asked for, and I'm sticking to it'.

Rebecca did (well as I type this she is still answering questions) an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit. Lots of questions on Pawn Stars, rare books and how she handles being an attractive woman on TV.

I made a point of looking closely since I watched the episode after seeing this thread. That was pretty blatant. They made no attempt to obscure the date. Not only was the date 2008 it was also inscribed to Richard Sr. Sloppy

As long as they keep bringing on Rebecca occasionally I will keep watching.

No Rick explained that he was a Fonzie fan as a kid and his dad gave him that autographed picture 25 years ago. The old man said he had forged the autograph to make Rick happy.

25 years ago Rick would have been 23 or 24 a little old for Fonzie fan.

At least a little old to get excited about an autographed picture of him. The whole story line didn't make sense. They have to try real hard to shoe horn Davey Deals into almost every episode.

There was the time when they had a woman come in to check out a signed baseball

Chumlee: What's the light for?
Woman: So I can see the writing on the ball.

If that's not scripted I don't know what is.

And of course everyone knows that it was Ron Dale who brought in the coke machine, probably from the Rick's Restoration bone yard. Then they took it to his brother Rick to be restored.

No, that's just the way Chumlee is. Rather bright when you don't expect it, and rather dim when you hit some of the smaller stuff.

Chumlee got lucky finding Bob Dylan that time, but had a total brain fart when he asked Bob to make the inscription out to him.

I highly doubt the light comment was scripted. The woman's incredulous response was much too good for a non actor, it had to be real.

Chumlee's teeth whitening is way over the top. And it seems during the segments he is trying to smile while showing both his upper and lower teeth. It is weird.

I don't really watch Pawn Stars anymore, but just caught part of an episode where a guy was trying to sell a trumpet signed by Herb Alpert. Rick was spouting off a bunch of facts about Herb, but kept calling him Herb Albert. Whoever fed Rick all of the facts to make him seem so knowledgeable about the subject should have told him how to pronounce Herb's last name.

Not a fan of Herb and I always thought his last name was Albert.

I know in Canada we're really behind, but how far came by so recently - American Restoration had an episode where they restored an iron lung. Now, History Canada is so far back in Pawn Stars they run 4 new (to Canada) episodes a week. So about an hour later, the very same iron lunch machine (unrestored) was shown on Pawn Stars.

Same guy, too. Hilarious. I think the air dates was Pawn Stars from July 2013 (yes, we're far behind) and American Restoration from August...

American Restoration is/was a spin-off of Pawn Stars. In early episodes of Pawn Stars he would bring Rick (the Restoration guy) items to restore. Then eventually he got his own show.

I really hope they are not gearing up for a Davey Deals spinoff. That guy needs to go.

I could watch Rebecca talk about books for a half hour though

Yea I don't have a clue what Davey Deals does or what they could spin off but he needs to go away.

I don't see what the love for Rebecca is?
