Storage Wars & Storage Wars Texas

I watch Storage Wars... I like it.

It's about a bunch of business owners who go to abandoned self storage units and bid on* them.

Something like this shouldn't make good TV, but it does.

And now they have this new show; Storage Wars Texas; same thing, different people, different state... I've also been getting into that too, lately.

Anybody else watch this?

Surprisingly good show.

Mainly because of the people who are on it, I don't think it would be the same without Barry or Jarrod & Brandi always bickering.

I've watched the show a few times, and I don't particularly like it. I don't really care for the people, and the whole concept seems a bit....skeezy. From what I understand these aren't necessarily abandonded storage units, they are storage units that haven't paid their rent.

But what I dislike most of all, is their "competition" for who won that episode is complete BS. They never actually get money for what the find in the lockers, they just sift through the stuff and are like "ok brand new table saw, I'll get 1,200 for that. Antique armoire, I'll get 800 for this. Ohhh a sweet crossbow, I'll get at least 500 for this one." But they rarely ever show them actually selling any of the crap. Sometimes they'll take 1 or 2 of their items to to an "expert" who tells them what it might be worth.

The sole allure of the show is the "what if" factor. I've seen maybe 5 episodes and I've yet to see the storage unit that is filled with guitars like they show in the beginning.


EDIT: I like Pawn Stars much better. They have really cool items coming through the door all the time, and usually I get a history lesson in the process.

The show is like a good joke, funny the first time, annoying thereafter...

I got addicted to it for a few weeks this summer. It's alright, but the people get really annoying after a while. I hate how they completely guess on the prices. Plus they're always like, "Oh I squeezed out a few hundred dollars profit" but I wish they said what their operating costs for the day were and how much money they hemorrhaged spending $1000 too much for the unit.

Auction Hunters is more interesting, but I'm pretty sure those lockers are set up because they find way too much sweet shit.

They only show the lockers that have cool stuff, with a few 'busts' every now and then. I have an acquaintance who buys storage lockers, and about 95% of them are junk, but showing that wouldn't get ratings...

Guys, Brandi is not that hot. She's just surrounded by really ugly people like her husband for example. If she was, you think she'd be married to him? I kinda get a trashy vibe from the both of them.

It's crap, just like all the reality programs that supposedly show how businesses are run behind the scenes. Far to much acting for the camera and the people are ****ing idiots.

Believe it or not, Canadian Pickers so much better than American Pickers. It's the only Canadian ripoff of an American show that I can say that for.

I watch Canadian Pickers too, but in the UK, it's not called that; It's called Cash Cowboys.

Pawn Stars/American Restoration and even that Hardcore Pawn show. I watch them all.
Phases of one or the other sometimes.
