    I worked at a pawn shop for a few years in high school and college, about 12 years ago. The interest rate was 21%. Generally we would loan half of what the item was worth. I saw a lot of crazy **** there. People will pawn anything. The weirdest thing I remember was a glass eye. Saw a ton of cool guns and guitars. We had a customer that would pawn his 15 year old boombox, worth about $5, regularly. I bet each time he pawned it he paid $100 back. Sad.

    I have logged most of my life and can say that those bunch of yahoos are nothing but drama queens and stage everything possible. it is amazing they even get anything done.

    on a real site you will show up before dawn and bust your a$$ to cut your board feet and be done by noon for the yarders and cats to reset for the next day.

    those guys just screw around all day

    The worst part is that one of my favorite shows, "Operation Repo" is a show I always just happen to flip to when it's 1/2 way through the show.

    I finally taped an episode, and there's some stupid disclaimer about "These videos are manufactured after instances that actually occurred in real life" or some crap like that.

    How does a channel called "TruTV" get away with manufacturing "reality television"???

    I watched the whole season and I have to say that may be one of my favorite reality based tv show of all-time.

    I can't believe they buried that show at 11, after 4 episodes of Axe Man. The ratings must not have been that good.

    The people in that show were amazing. You can't get actors better than that. Chris Flemming going off after the last race and fighting that guy was priceless.

    Nice find!

    I think the cool thing about the show was the fact that you got to watch a race season.

    American Restoration. New show that's an offshoot of Pawn Stars. Good stuff. Quite impressive work those guys do.

    Is it the Coke machine dude? Some of the work he's done on pinball and juke boxes blew me away. I would love to restore old crap like that.

    Pawn Stars, Storm Chasers, Tosh.0, Lie To Me, have to be my favorite basica cable shows. Swamp people was rather awesome for the couple of episodes I watched.

    I watched a few parts of that show and was blown away. I used to watch Jerry Springer when I had a bad day, but Swamp People make Jerry's old guests look civilized.

    for real, watching a bunch of red necks running around killing alligators just isn't entertaining to me.

    i saw the commericals for this show and i like rick when he's in pawn stars. i'm really impressed by his restoration work but i don't think a 30 min show on restoration would keep the audience entertained for more than a couple of episodes . then again IAB was entertained by american restoration so what the hell do i know .swamp people ftw ! i think i saw my uncle from arkansas in a episode of swamp people .

    You mean the coke machine he "restored" yet it was completely different from the one the gave him to restore? Ever since seeing that I became very skeptical of his work.

    Seriously, Swamp People is horrible. I don't want to see rednecks wrasslin alligators. I want them fighting each other.

    Bring back Madhouse.
