Pawn Stars back to reviews
Decent enough...
A decent series, and you certainly learn some interesting facts about history. But too much of the comedy is based around Corey and especially Chumlee doing stupid things, and Chumlee kicks it Up To Eleven, doing things that are so over-the-top ridiculous that you wonder why Rick hasn't fired him yet. And that serves to kill the suspension of disbelief. Granted, all so-called "reality" shows are scripted to some extent, but many aren't this transparent.
Chum is Corey's childhood friend, and the guys all have a soft spot for him. To them that's probably worth more than money, especially considering the store makes plenty as it stands.
