I watched the new History Channel show Pawn Stars.
Wow, this show could have been interesting and fun, but it failed. At first glance the show starts to succeed and you wonder why the history channel picked it up. You still wont be able to figure it out after watching it.
The show offers you the three-generations of pawn shop owners Richard, Rick, Cory Harrison. Richard is too fucking old and blind to appraise shit. Rick is fun to watch and he is the main star. They follow him around as he jumps from different locations in the area to appraise some historical items, but ends up looking at shit. Cory, “Big Hoss”, is a fucktard. His butt buddy Chumlee. Chumlee follows Cory around like a gay puppy dog. Oh yeah, Chumlee and Cory are big fat fuckers. They are also assholes.
The first show features a Hotchkiss Cannon from the Cuban-American war, very cool. But they break for commercials too often and by the time they roll around to shooting the cannon it’s the end of the show. You start to realise this show has no business on the History Channel when you see the other garbage they have in the store. What does a fake Chuck Berry autographed guitar have to do the history channel????
For some reason you have to wait through too many commercials. Rick deserves more airtime. Richard again is too old. Every time he comes on the screen you want to rip your hair out as he takes forever to talk about whatever is in front of him. Chumlee and Cory are perfect for one another. So if you like wasting time on watching garbage on TV, this is your show.
The History Channel is slipping. Its starting to get Mtv Syndrome. Mtv used to play music now they play reality show after reality show with no music ever. Sigh.
I could see this crappy show on Spike TV, but it wont be on longer than a season.
Here is a crappy preview:
