A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series highlights the different strategies dealers, pickers, and pawn brokers use to negotiate deals for collectibles. It also offers some historic background on some of items.
Positive Role Models
Some sellers are interested in making a fair profit for their items, others seem a little greedy. All the dealers are interested in making a purchase that will allow them to make a profit following the item's resale. There's not much racial or gender diversity.
Products & Purchases
Sale items include a 1958 Lincoln Continental, autographed Wilson footballs, and other brand-named collectibles. The Don Presley Auction house is featured.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series, which features people trying to sell their collectibles, focuses on how much money one can make through direct sale or auction. Old brand logos are sometimes visible and/or discussed. It's pretty mild, but kids probably won't be too interested.
Is It Any Good?
The series highlights the negotiation process between a person who wants pay as little as possible for the item and a person who wants to get as much money as possible for the same thing. But the real fun comes from the suspense created both by the wheeling and dealing, as well as the auction bidding process.
Some may find the cash negotiation process a little uncomfortable to watch, especially when folks seem more driven by greed than by the actual retail or nostalgic value the item. But viewers who like antiques and collecting will probably like (and possibly learn something from) what they see here.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
