Picked Off offers viewers a chance to see some of the ways that people wheel-and-deal for interesting collectibles, as well as a chance to learn a little bit about what gives antiques and collectors' items their financial value. It also shows some of the issues that arise when people pay too much attention to the historic and/or nostalgic nature of a piece rather than the details that give it its commercial value.

The show attempts to create some suspense and drama during appraisals, but the real fun comes from watching the teams pick through flea markets and outbuildings full of interesting items. Some of the stories the dealers share are interesting, too. Picked Off won't to appeal to everyone, but folks who like swap meets, flea markets, and collecting will find it both informative and entertaining.
