I watch Storage Wars, Pawn Stars, American Pickers, American Restoration, et al which are, generally, on Bio and the History channel. checking the EPG, I glossed over Dave - a channel I do not watch - and saw 'Storage Hunters'. I sky + this and am looking forward to watching it, as I was hoping sky would show it but, as one would not expect a channel such as Dave to air it, I don't know how much of the series I may have missed. Does anyone know when it was first shown on Dave?

Interesting show this. Brandon and Lori are really beginning to annoy me on this show just recently. They seem to really begrudge anybody else getting anything. Lori in particular seems a nasty peice of work.

I know this is an old thread, but I had to come out of lurking to say this.

I normally like all these auction shows, especially Auction Hunters. I like Storage Hunters too, but Brandon and Lori are fast turning me off the show. They are such bullies and they're always trying to pick a fight and play dirty. Whenever they win one I always hope they make a (big) loss!

T money is my favourite. Cant stand brandonand lori so i like it when jesse beats them.

I also like the way the auctioneer gives people nicknames, although it took me about 7 eps before i realised why the bolt cutter man is called green mile!

It's obvious Brandon isn't a newcomer to the entertainment business; during the interviews with the buyers, he really plays for the cameras. And has anyone noticed the way in which - when Brandon is talking to us - Lori googles at him, and nods her head? I do prefer this show to Storage Wars, but neither is as informative or educational, as Pawn Stars or American Pickers.

They bought a bad unit on the show i saw from yesterday, but then redeemed themselves at the end!

So frustrating because i root for them to lose because they are so annoying!

entertaining due to bad acting in what is clearly a set-up and well rehearsed show.

One of my guilty pleasures, this show.

It may be staged and all set up (though I hope at least some of the bins are real) but it's really entertaining and the big bins and the big wins are great.

My favourite episode was still the shipping cargo with the Tesla.

It gets absolutely panned in the USA by all accounts because of how badly phoney it is, but I am addicted to it

PS: T-money my favourite, as is Dan!

T-Money is the greatest. Liked the episode that was on recently where they had a bin with loads of bikes.

No one else was really interested and he won it by bidding about two grand. Everyone thought he'd way overspent but he ended up making a very nice profit.

He's a great character. Very entertaining.

Sean says all the auctioneers in his company were comedians, Also Papa Bear, aka Ron Kirkpatrick, is a professional actor. It does seem somewhat coincidental that all of these evacuees from the entertainment industry, have chosen to enter the auction business! I still watch these shows, just be aware that storage wars/hunters are not fact based.

Even if its fake its still entertaining!

I find it amusing that theres always a crowd but its only ever one of the big names that wins the bin! The extras bid but never win.

Who gets the money from the auctions? Surely if it was real, the guys with staff shirts would go through the bins first and take anything valuable and sell them for ten grand rather than sell to a bidder for two grand who then sells them for ten?
