How do you f uck up a show as simple as "Pawn Stars"

Post by gHost Spartan on 2014-06-06, 22:21

scratch 

The concept is incredibly simple: a family a dorks and an imbecile have a pawn shop in Las Vegas. People come in and want to sell their shit. Pawn stars call expert, expert appraises, then negotiating.

Last night I watched and it's fucking unwatchable. Stupid scripted story lines are now the focus of the show. In one episode, Rick ended up buying his step-daughter an almost brand new Mercedes. The story line itself was just so poorly scripted and acted - it was a fucking joke.

And yeah, I know the previous episodes were loosely scripted but now it's just straight up acting. I can't watch anymore.

Have they gotten around to adding any hot women? Whenever I watched it, the entire show was overweight men.

gHost, you should go in there and make a scene and try to get on TV.

None of those episodes are loosely scripted. They are all scripted and type cast.

For fun, research the fake fucks from duck dynasty.

My buddy sold a motor home to them in an episode. It was 99% scripted then, and that was the second season.

He said they negotiated a number with completely different people and then they walked they how the story would go.

All fake. Duh.

Maybe they're putting all their energy into the spinoff game show where contestants have a chance to "put their hands on Rick's junk" (that's how they're promoting it).

And Chumlee looks like he's had gastric bypass surgery.

It is sad that people think reality TV is real. But not surprising. Nor are the demo matches.

If it's on TV, gHost, it's scripted (and always has been).

I had a friend go on there a few years back and it was the last episode I watched. He told me that the area where the show is taped is actually behind the actual show room and is just a replica of the store. The people in the background are 'actors' in that they're told to not pay attention to the camera.

Apparently there's a door in the replica room that opens to a brick wall and Harrison frequently tells guests to exit through it. Kinda of a running gag. My friend had nothing but good things to say about his experience, even if it's all staged. Said Rick Harrison was a genuinely good guy behind the scenes.

I was channel surfing tonight and was surprised it's still on the air. History Channel used to be good.
