A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show's goal is to help people who are having financial troubles by helping them sell their keepsakes, collections, and heirlooms. Brief information about authenticating and valuing antiques and collectibles is offered.
Positive Role Models
Pennington uses auctions as a way to help people get a financial boost from stuff they own. Some people exhibit greedy behavior.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality show has a few emotional moments when people in financial trouble are forced to sell valuable items. Their occasional frustrated reactions might bother sensitive viewers. Some people seem a little greedy, too. Consumer logos on items like vintage Louis Vuitton luggage and GT cars are visible. Younger viewers probably won't be too interested in watching.
Is It Any Good?
The series offers a lively look at the unique items that people have in their homes. Some of the stories behind them are very interesting, too. But many of these people are also parting with beloved items for economic reasons, and watching them struggle through the process can be a little difficult to watch.
The likability of the people featured here makes it easy to root for them as the bids get started -- or feel bad for them when they're told that their prized possessions are forgeries, fakes, or have little cash value. You might also be inclined to look at the stuff around your own home and wonder if it's worth a lot of green.
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.
