    Not really.. I'm sure the dealership didn't loose any money on the deal.. either they gave him a good discount off of MSRP, or they figured the publicity was worth a few thousand dollars off the price. It's not like someone came into the store with a Maserati and Chum bargained them down to steal the thing. This is just bad headline writing. So he goes into a dealership to buy a new Maserati and gets a good deal? BFD.

    Ummm. The "news site" is TMZ. It's what you get when you cross the Onion with the National Enquirer.

    My point was Chumlee bought a maserati, not that he got some kind of deal. ;)

    More lame Subway advertising this week. I think I'm ready to give up on the show. The premise isn't interesting anymore and the bad acting is getting on my nerves.

    I'm starting to agree. I'd rather they used the trivia question part of the show before/after commercials to put the Subway ads there. Something like "Subway...try our new breakfast sandwiches" on the side or bottom of the screen.

    I get a kick of of people who seem to have no idea how a Pawn Shop operates. An expert will say something is worth $1,000, Rick will ask what they want for it and they'll say "well he just said it's worth $1,000 so $1,000". Maybe some know that's just the starting point in haggling but some think they'll really get it.

    Although it's mostly scripted I still prefer this over Hardcore, I can't take the constant screaming customers on that show. I think they use the same people on Hardcore as they do on Parking Wars since both are filmed in Detroit (PW is also in Philly).

    re Hardcore: Not sure which is worse -- the "customers" or the brother/sister bickering.

    Yep. So far all these product placements are 30 seconds long. One press of the button and it's gone. I wonder how long before advertisers figure this out. :p

    Agreed. I realize they are trying to be different than Pawn Stars but the sibling rivalry is played out and you can only have so many loud, obnoxious "customers" screaming.

    I watched Hardcore once, and never looked at it again for the same reason. I hate screaming (it goes all through me :)).

    At the risk of sounding racist, it's the same reason I don't watch most black sitcoms. It seems like in most of them every scene results in screaming. I'd feel the same about any sitcom that has a lot of screaming, but black sitcoms seem to do it a lot for some reason.

    The thing I can't stand is the "over-talking". That's where they SCREAM over the top of each other and neither person ever gets to make a point. They do it on Maury Povich and Springer and shows like that all the time. That form of arguing just gives me a headache. Obviously there are people who like to watch it, otherwise there wouldn't be so much of it, but I fail to see the appeal myself. Why would you want to hear people screaming at each other? :thumbsdown:
