Pawn Stars a must-see

April 22, 2010 - Bennet Goldstein

Not many television shows are must-see TV for me, aside from major sporting events. That is why it’s rare for me to get swept up in a show like I have for Pawn Stars on History.  The show follows the day-to-day business of a pawn shop in Las Vegas. 

The featured employee is the wheeling and dealing co-owner Rick. He never backs down when fast talking for a good deal. His father is the crotchety guy they call Old Man. He’ll chime in with his “in my day” rants which are mildly comical, but he is at his best when yelling at his co-workers after he thinks they made a bad deal. Rick’s son is Corey who is still learning the ropes and makes a mistake here or there offering a ton of cash for junk. Then there is Corey’s friend — and in many eyes the star of the show — Chumlee. He cherishes the role of lovable loser and his off-the-wall comments make for some knee-slapping laughs.
