STARTS WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 1 on A&E
Okay, I'm not usually into these things, although the Hollywood Treasures show is a cool idea (the guy is a total dick, though) and I like the family in Vegas with the Pawn Shop on that other show, but it's so staged it's not really very comfortable. Ya'all know how I adored abandoned sites and sometimes, well, finding leftover treasures. This show actually intrigues me and perhaps that's the part of me that adored that scene in "Silence of the Lambs" when Agent Starling went into the storage unit and found that car and and other scary items....
Well, I'll give it a try. The only thing I hate about these reality shows is that the pick people with the most abrasive personalities that you would hate in real life if you had to deal with them. I don't know why they do that. Do they think it's just loud and aggressive enough to get our short-attention span focused? Here's A&E's write up about it.
A&E presents the new original real-life series “Storage Wars,” which follows four professional buyers and their teams as they scour repossessed storage units in search of hidden treasure. Part gamblers, part detectives, these seasoned veterans have found everything from coffins to the world’s most valuable comic book collection, paying as little as ten dollars for items valued in the millions.
