Watch Pawn Stars
Pawn Stars is a reality TV show that showcases the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop based in Las Vegas Nevada. The show airs each Monday night on the History Channel. The show revolves around four main characters. Rick Harrison is the co-owner who oversees operations at the shop. His father, nicknamed "Old Man", is the owner of the company. There will be times when they show him sleeping in his chair during the day.
Corey, also known as Big Hoss, manages the sales floor during the day. He is Rick's son and is most likely going to inherit the shop one day. His main job is to watch over ChumLee. He is dimwitted and often says and does dumb things for comic relief.
Customers will bring items into the pawn shop to be either pawned or sold. If an item is pawned, the customer is granted a loan that must be repaid within 120 days. If an item is sold, the item becomes property of the shop.
There are many experts and researchers that make regular appearances on the show when Rick, Corey or the Old Man doesn't know the value of an item. Gun experts, museum curators, handwriting experts and others are brought in to authenticate items to get a sense of their true value.
Another fascinating aspect of the show is the negotiation process that takes place before an item is pawned or sold. Many people believe that there autographed picture or concert poster is worth thousands when it may only be worth $50. The banter between the customer and the employees of the pawn shop provide many humorous moments for the show.
