I watch this show soley to see how old the items are (seeing something from the 1700s and older is just amazing to me) and to guess their worth. This show is good for learning about history and to learn how much certain artifacts cost. I find the show can be dry because the facts can get tedious and you just want to yell: HOW MUCH IS IT WORTH? The experts tend to talk slowly and draw things out (much to my disliking), but I guess the show needs that element of suspense. Anyhow, if your child can sit through the appraisal then they may end up liking this show.
