I saw it for the first time today, was flicking through the channels and it caught my attention. They open up storage rental units that people have abandoned and let the bidders just look from the doorway but not enter or touch anything, then ferocious bidding ensues. It was quite compelling grin

Love that show. If you like that kinda thing try storage wars on history too... Strangely addictive smile

I was hooked after the gothic unit, those dolls were awful but so pricey shock

Have you seen baggage battles on quest? That's brilliant too it's suitcases that have been lost / uncollected.

DH records it. I'm happy to watch it although its not something I'd go out of my way to watch. Its definately exciting waiting to see what they've got - if anything.

DH is obsessed with it. Yes there's one where they buy suitcases from Lost property too. hmm

He also likes the Australian Border control customs thing. sad

Yeah DH has our tivo set up to record it.

It's insane...the rows they have with each other are hysterical

I think that may be why I like itblush. There was one where a couple had a flat tyre and blamed some others, actual fisticuffs ensued and the couple ended up with some sort of amphibious vehicle, it's so random grin

Sparklingbrook Thu 07-Feb-13 12:01:35

Is the woman in one of the couples called Brandy or something? And there's anolder guy who always wears skeleton gloves. grin

I think that might be the one I haven't seen that I have set up to record on a series link this one had a small dark-haired woman and her husband, a couple of rednecks and a guy that looked a bit like the one from Man vs Food.

Sparkling what's that one with the suitcases?

I like Pawn Stars too. Can you tell I watch too much telly?

I'm obsessed with Storage Wars. Barry Weiss is a legend.

It's not real you know. It's one of those ridiculous, fake American things that are scripted.

The programme has been going for quite some time.
Unfortunately, I am with HDee. I think some of it has to be scripted. There is a format to it.
