    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.

    Pawn Stars is still pretty good entertainment.

    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.
