Pawn Stars Starts On A&E Friday 8 June At 7.30pm – More Highbrow Than The Name Suggests
If you are expecting Pawn Stars to be about skanky strung out people going into a pawn shop flogging their third ipad of the week think again.
It is a tad different from the clientele and products like the ones local ones in my area, which just has a steady stock of mobile phones, jewellery and CD’s. Yes you get it portable stuff….
Pawn Stars which starts its seventh series tonight on A&E is a tad more highbrow then that.
This pawn shop in Las Vegas might get a few busted out gamblers and no under dressed showgirls, is a bit like a modern antiques roadshow with the pawnbrokers getting interesting historical and collectors items. This can include American memorabillia like a canon which they pay a good five figures for to an early Wurlitzer jukebox.
Not bad viewing and they do give little nuggets of information about the items. So if you are a fan of interesting memorabilia like Antiques Roadshow but want a bit more spice/drama with it this could be the show for your.
Pawn Stars starts tonight June 8 on A&E and will screen every weeknight at 7.30pm.
