Pawn Stars was a unique idea, take a Pawn Shop in Las Vegas and chronicle all the crazy stuff that comes in. It could have been fun, could have been interesting. But when it’s so obviously set up, it looses the charm. That’s what’s happened to the show (very quickly). Manufactured drama, stupid “storylines” and recruited people & things have made it a blah show to watch.
That’s not the case with this old video of the shop. It’s interesting to see Rick and how much he’s changed and then how much more sane he was. Oh well, it was good back then, now it’s less background noise, and more avoid noise.
