Review: American Pickers

American Pickers is yet another History Channel production, first aired back in 2010, which delivers great entertainment. I consider American Pickers is worth watching especially if you enjoy Pawn Stars, Storage Wars or similar reality TV shows.

The three main characters American Pickers revolves around are Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, two antique dealers based in Iowa, and Danielle, who plays the role of a dispatcher directing them to collectors willing to sell something. Mike and Frank are always on the look for items they can resell for a nice profit.

The main premise of American Pickers is that a man's ‘garbage’ might be easily turned into gold if you know where to sell it. Mike and Frank visit old warehouses or barns and sometimes even flea markets. They are looking for folks that have recently inherited what to them looks like junk but is, in fact, collector material, or for folks that want to get rid of old stuff they just found in various barns and so forth. These two American Pickers are especially interested in old commercial signs, ranging from old Coca-Cola signs to pretty much any obscure brand of beer, petroleum products and what not. The pickers then flip these items purchased at an affordable price, for getting a nice profit. From time to time,  the pickers need to get expert advice in order to assess the value of certain items and this adds to the entertainment of the show.

Verdict:

American Pickers looks like it’s here to stay, and this is not a surprise considering the show is entertaining and has lots of fans all around the world. This is solid entertainment.
