Pawn Stars

Recommended Posts

Parkinson's is a dreadful disease. Dr. Toothbrush's grandfather died of it over a decade ago, and we are both seeing signs of it in his mom, who turned 70 last week. She said her doctor has told her she does not have it, and I hope that is true.

We watched the tribute to the old man last night. Very nice; he was obviously well-loved & well-respected, not only by family of course, but Gold + Silver employees, experts, and production company & network employees. Poor Rick looked gutted. One of his sons' faces was blurred in family pictures; wonder what that's about.

Maybe the one that was cut from the will?

That's what I figured when that story came out. I know it's absolutely none of my nosey-ass business, but I would love to know the reasons behind it.

There were reports that the son in question was written out of the Old Man's will, although they don't specify why.

Given the way that section of the will was worded, it sounds like he may have some sort of drug or alcohol problem.  And the Old Man didn't want to give him any money to spend on it:

“I would like to express my love and affection for Christopher Keith Harrison,” the will reads, “however, for purposes of this Will, I have intentionally and with full knowledge failed to provide for him and his issue.”

Anyone else hear reports that Pawn Stars is cancelled?  I think there may be one more season already filmed.

I can see them not wanting to do it anymore.   The show was about the family, father son, grandson.   With the Old Man gone, part of it is missing.   

Plus Rick has so many other irons in the fire now.   He developed that whole area into Pawn Plaza.   There's a bar, Chumlee has a candy store, other stuff.   They don't need the show anymore.

Not just that, but half the people on the show just want a free appraisal on their stuff.

The old man was nicknamed "The Appraiser" because he knew the value of items right off the top of his head.  

If you look at his life, he is the exact definition of the American Dream:

-- Driving a school bus at age 14 to help support the family

-- Joining the Navy and then re-enlisting for the medical benefits for his daughter, who died at age 6 from Down's Syndrome

-- Retiring from the Navy with full benefits

-- Opening his own business

-- Finishing his career as a successful business owner and TV reality star

Pretty cool, really.

There hasn't been one new episode since June and that was the old man tribute. Before that the last actual episode was late May so we are coming up on 6 months without a new episode which is a long time for a show like this.

I worry that @merylinkid was correct in stating that the cast members have so many other things going on that they don't need to do the show anymore.  

The early seasons are the most fun to watch.  When we could imagine that the guys were really coming in to work every day, and there just happened to be a camera crew on hand to record the more interesting transactions.

Yea, but you would think a show like this would get some kind of send off I noticed even the reruns seem to be on a break for it. Looks like they are coming back next week but they haven't been airing them either.
