I am not sure if I seen any episodes or not. I know I have heard the name of the show and I think I have watched it before but I hardly ever watch tv.

I watched Pawn Stars for a while, but it's gotten too much like American Chopper.

American Pickers is cool, but they are doing themselves (and collectors everywhere) a disservice by showing how much they are making. Once again facilitating the notion that everything is worth a million dollars.

I've only seen a couple of episodes of "Pickers" but in one they walked right by 2 nice looking Bolens tractors and in the other they met with an old guy sitting on a big-wheel Case. At least they don't have their priorities straight for the rest of us.

I agree with MH81 on this one, I think by showing an appraised value, people get the idea that all their junk is valuable. Most of the time, the high price items are appraised in a certain market, a market that the normal person does not operate in.

I like Ax Men. Looks like they are really increasing the showboating this year. I didn't think they could do any more but they musta raised the bar! I wonder if the dump truck tipping was staged? I never rolled a dump but one time I was overloaded by about 8 tons and was so careful taking off and not breaking an axle or tearing up anything. I made it to the dump site safely and was so releived - I hit the PTO and up the bed went but I forgot to unlatch the tailgate and when all that weight got behind the rear axle, I stood the truck right up on its tailgate!! Man it looked like a long way down from the cab! A co-worker was right there with a large wheel loader and I had him climb up the bed to release the tailgate and dig his bucket under the tailgate and lift . It sat down rather easy. I got lucky as there was no damage whatsoever and no wrecker bill. I haven't done that again ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ yet.

With a dad like that, the boy came out better than I'd expect.

I saw a guy do giant wheelies several times spreading gravel with the tailgate chained. He'd be stretched right out the window holding the rope and when he couldn't stretch any more, he'd pop the clutch and yank the rope. He could have put his front axle in the box of another truck. Never saw him make a hard landing, always gentle as the gravel leaked out. Impressive!
