T&A for JUNK

I think that all this show is is a T&A Junk show. Show is a great idea but, please no T&A.

I love it!

As far as the junk people being taken advantage of, they are happy that someone wants to buy it....There is not alot of people knocking down there doors to buy their junk.... It's cash in their hands and I bet they are tickled pink... If they want to make something out of it and sell it, then they would have done it already. The girls are funny! I think it's great t.v. Better than sex, violence and bad language.... Good clean show....

Is It Any Good?

The series promises a lot of fun for adult women, though its appeal for kids is less sure. However, craft- or carpentry-oriented kids will appreciate the creations that emerge from the "trash" finds. Designers Hutson and McQueen are very likable leads, although their enthusiasm and personas sometimes feel forced. They toggle between cheerily annoyed and jumping-up-and-down excited. Along the same lines, their contractor Alan Luxmore, who's responsible for realizing the women's visions, displays a showy, exaggerated frustration for the camera.

Overall, the show is a lot of fun and genuinely engaging. However, as the designers enter rural communities behind the wheel of an Mercedes SUV, there's a disparity between sister pickers and the small-town pickees that is very hard to ignore. This is why it's nice to see a few of the small town dealers surprise the women with their high price points and in-depth knowledge of the value of their "junk." They may be from the big city, but the sister pickers aren't the only ones with some sophistication.
