Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The unscripted, formulaic series highlights an age-old tradition of buying, selling, and swapping that began long before folks began using Craigslist. It highlights the role the radio show has played in the Appalachian community, and how collectors, antique dealers, and car restorers look to the radio series as one way of finding new inventory. But a big part of Swap Shop is showing the process by which purchasing decisions are made, and deals are negotiated. Granted, there are some staged moments, and those who aren't interested in antique dealing and vintage shopping won't find it very exciting. But it's worth the watch if you like to spot a deal.
