It's still easy enough to skip those short segments and just focus on the items for me. I never really cared what happened to the guys.

They just need to keep bringing Rebecca in on a regular basis.

I did that for a while, and then I realized the show was only 4 minutes long.

I was pleasantly surpised they brought her in this week to check out FDR's signature. Normally Drew, Dana, or Mark would do that.

I don't trust that sports memorabilia guy at all for signatures.

They used to have that actual forensic signature examiner come in to review signatures, but the last few I saw had that sports guy giving his input instead. Something tells me he's not in a position to accurately make those calls.

Looks like it is called Lords of War.

It's on the National Geographic channel, which I'm not sure I get. I doubt this show would hold my interest anyway.

The second episode last night hit a new low for me with the scripted crap they've been doing. Chumley "secretly" tries to use his phone to record the Old Man being mean to him. Are they trying to pretend that a film crew isn't there recording them doing these stupid things now? What a steaming pile of excrement.

yeah...the first episode was pretty bad too where Rick finds his chair and then comes out 2 seconds later and the entire place is decorated.

I really don't understand what these produces think....but they always seem to mess with what made these shows popular.

I tuned out of this show probably two seasons ago (at least this past season) because this stuff was getting so bad to the point that I lost interest in whatever nuggets could be interesting.

Don't miss it a bit, either.

The Rock And Roll Fantasy Camp seemed so lame.

Looking online, the cheapest package is $299 and the most expensive is $4999.

I think Rick got the $499 special, which lets you jam with two musicians.

What happened with the stolen coin? I fell asleep.

Agreed the Chum thing was sooooo bad. I kinda liked seeing what the R&R camp was like, even if it was staged.

I make liberal use of the FF button, moving to the spots where someone's there with an item and skipping when I see a bunch of the guys yacking.

The JFK tape story was interesting last night. Felt bad for the guy that he didn't have a one-of-a-kind recording.

Boy did we fast forward through a lot of last nights London episodes. Interaction between the guys is way too scripted to be funny at all.

When Rick landed in London and his friend sent the "Chum Lee" of Royal Pawn to be his tour guide I decided I was done watching anything that's not a customer at the counter.

Jeez they're killing this show.

Agreed Satchel. Most of my favorite reality shows are being ruined by over scripting and by making all the talent related shows two hours. They are killing the Golden Goose...

I fear a "Pawn Stars UK" coming out soon.

That was ridiculous. Their Chum Lee didn't even have a car, or know anything about London. Why would he be sent to meet Rick other than for scripted tv.

I miss the early days of the series when I didn't know it was so scripted, even though it was.

Well, it's because audiences are demanding more variety and they like to see "conflict" and "drama" in their reality shows, so the produces have to comply in order to bring up those ad rates.

Only so much of the same they can do before it gets repetitive and you end up with only the hard core viewers.

I've never met anyone who wants more conflict and drama in their reality shows.

Especially not manufactured drama. I personally don't like all that BS and I prefer to just see the "reality" of their lives. That's why I watch. To get a glimpse into someone else's World.

They must be running out of cool stuff to show.

They are relying too much on the behind the scenes joke pulling, the "friend" coming in an wanting to buy something (the dude that wanted to buy the scooter), and the British Chumlee.

Just show me the cool stuff people find in their grandmas attic and think it's worth a lot more than it really is, or the other way around.

Never watch network reality shows, have you? If the actors on there aren't screaming at each other the whole show, it's a flop.

Of course, some of that has spilled over because the cable channels need to attract more viewers - the people who watch it now will continue to watch it, but the new subscribers are what they need to attract. Especially since subscribers might decide they need to cut down the channel plans to save some money. Or worse, go OTA.

It's happening quicker on shows now - one of my favorites lasted just the first season before they introduced conflict and drama in the second through present seasons.

I found a new pawn stars spinoff in my usenet downloads folder this afternoon, and with Rick's recent trip over there its not a big surprise, Pawn.Stars.UK.S01E01.HDTV.x264-FTP

Haven't had the chance to watch it yet but will likely take a look later tonight.

Great find.

It was interesting to see more of Rick's trip overseas.

So, is this new girl doing an internship in bad acting? If so, she's come to the right place.

Wonder why they didn't use Rick's Restorations for the pump car?

I'm going to speculate for similar reasons they no longer use Sean for the gun appraisals.

Although Rick already has an exclusivity contract with History Channel and Sean refused to sign one.

That was one of the main reasons I bought a Roamio.
