Yep.

A friend of mine runs one. They have auctions from time to time, and he invited us out to one. Two things really stood out to me:

1) AWESOME people watching experience. <---actually, this is an understatement
2) There is no good shite in those units

I found out the reason behind #2 later on. When the units are abandoned for a while, the management (and their friends) generally gets first dibs on the stuff. So anything left in the units for auction is what other people didn't want in the first place.

personally, i watch some of these shows, but i think TV in general would improve exponentially to the better if this fad would fricking go away ..


I disagree with the latter, but my argument isn't meant for the OT.

But they will NEVER go away because they are exponentially cheaper for the networks to produce than "scripted" shows.

Lots of reasons to leave stuff in storage lockers: death, divorce/separation, incarceration, overseas deployment, having to move abruptly, losing source of income to pay rent on unit, etc. I seriously doubt most auctioned lockers are simply because the owners forgot they had them.

Exactly. And this is the kind of crap they now show on channels like TLC, A&E, Discover, and History Channel.

It's a fricking joke.

One of the interventionist is a friend of a friend and I'm very familiar with one of the rehabs the show sends people.

I've figured the show was fake for sometime, but I still enjoy watching it.

I used to watch hardcore pawn, but that shite is absolute garbage now. Pawn stars is still a great show, but I think it's meant to be more of an educational show (that's why they always call in experts) because a normal pawn shop never does that.

re: Dave Hester alleges that Storage Wars is staged...sues the show


My friend was on Pawn Stars. He was on the episode where he sold an old civil war pistol or something like that.

He said first he went to the shop to sell it, and they gave him a date to come back on so he could be on the show.

Then he went back that day, where a bunch of other people were there to be on the show too. He said the History Channel producers did the negotiating for his pistol in the parking lot, and he sold it for the price. Then he went inside to film his negotiation scene with Rick and the Old Man, and had a script to follow. He said the first half was when he first goes in, and say they need an expert. But the expert was just outside waiting for his cue to come in. Then the second part was the expert coming in, they already know what it is and whether or not it is real. Then the haggling is all scripted, they already know what to sell/buy it for.

He said all the experts that were needed were there on set for the day of filming and researched ahead of time what was going to be filmed.

Plus, I used to live in Las Vegas and the shop itself you can't even point a camera in the direction of the place where they "write your ticket" and the cast is never there.
