[quote:Anon9999:MV85Njg4MzVfMjc5MTczMTFfQ0M2NTg3MzM=] [quote:Eponymous Coward:MV85Njg4MzVfMjY5OTE1MDNfOEM5MUI0NDU=] I hate the disastrous train wreck that THC has become. What do truckers, pawn shops, junk dealers and swamp people have to do with history? What does corporate propaganda about how things are made have to do with history? Nothing... If they wanna put a channel on and call it the Boring White People Channel, that would be fine. Let us just call it what it is. [/quote] In two years, Wolfe has gone from describing American Pickers like this: "Each item we pick has a history all its own and the people we meet are a breed all their own. We make a living telling the history of America...one piece at a time." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Pickers To this: "With the American Pickers cult flourishing, Wolfe's passions are going mainstream. Collectors are clamoring for the Americana curiosities and oddities that make up the bulk of what he and Fritz pick each week, and their mud-caked, sunbaked aesthetic is shaping interior design trends as well. "I've always bought what I liked, and I've made a living off of my eye and my gut and what I think is cool," Wolfe says. [color=red][b]"On Monday nights, I have an hour-long commercial on what I think is hot. Imagine being in business and having that opportunity.[/b][/color] Whatever we're finding, people are like, ‘Wow, that's cool. I love it. I want to buy one of those.'"" http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/220176 - - - - - An hour-long commercial to showcase his business and wares to interior designers. The History Channel can drop the pretense that American Pickers, Pawn Stars, American Restoration or any of this type of programming is about history. [/quote]
I can NOT believe that the HISTORY channel would show such a disgrace to our older generation. TO think for one minute this would somehow be cleared to air is appalling. To brag or somehow boast about an unsolicited visit to Leland's farm and the price paid versus the actual value should be illegal. If this would have been my granddad I would have felt robbed of my family heirloom and treasures. The History Channel should immediately cancel this show!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were so looking forward to a new show that was really about hidden treasures in American not thievery we couldn't even finish the show.
These guys are scum bags !!!!! Nice job History Channel way to promote thieves . I would love to meet these guys face to face , and work a deal out with them. If you know what I mean ! And my parents always told me crime doesn't pay, unless you make a show for the History Channel .Way to teach kids its ok to steal from the older generation. History Channel you should make things right pay these people fair price for their stuff, and fire these dirt bags
