Re: Storage Wars

To be fair, on a couple of occasions Darrell (the heavier-set guy in the wife-beaters) often falsely bids-up the lockers too in order to cash-out the competition. He just does it in a bit less obnoxious manner.

But that one guy is so whipped it's not even funny.

But I really like the old guy, Barry, and his antics (the midgets, the "psychics") make me laugh. He seems more into the "collecting" part and not as interesting in cashing in as the other guys seem to be.

Re: Storage Wars

These guys have to have pretty good amounts of cash on them.

I dislike Dave, too, for bidding up just to bean ass. I understand that if a person bids more on THIS locker, they can't outbid him on another, but his pleasure in costing others goes beyond business. He does have a good system of sorting the stuff though, what with his "higher end" store and his thrift store next to it. At least that's what think he was doing.

Brandon? The whipped guy? Yeah, he's whipped, but he's kinda a fool too. He says he's going with his gut, but his instincts aren't all that great.

I kind of feel the same way. Brandi may say things in a rather bitchy tone but she is almost always right, while her husband is too impulsive and airheaded. I guess they both need each other to balance out the other.

I do like Brandi though, she usually says exactly what I'm thinking!

I can understand. Typing on a smart phone, especially one without a tactile interface, isn't easy.

Just found this thread! We watch this show too. And like the rest of you, i HATE Dave with a passion. He is such an asshole, it isn't funny. That "yeeeeeeup" that he does. I can't believe no one has hired a crew just to beat the shit out of him. I can't stand his smug attitude and how he bids up a locker when he isn't even interested in it for himself, just to make other people have to pay more for it. I hope karma takes a big bite out of his ass someday.

See, that's why I don't understand why he would agree to go on a reality show such as this. In nearly every episode, they blatantly advertise the name and location of his store (as well as the couple's store). With as many nutjobs as there are out there, it wouldn't take much for one lone crazy to see him, think "He needs to take a dirt nap" and show up at the guy's store. Sure, they may not use last names in the show, but they do on their website and in promotional materials.

If we can have insane astronauts who will wear diapers and travel across the country to confront their lover's rival with a gun, we're at the stage where people need to protect themselves. Instead, Dave is basically saying "I'm an ass. Bring it on." I just hope no one answers his challenge.

I like the show, but who leaves old comic books, silver coins sets, sports trading cards, cash, and old framed picasso drawings in a storage unit?
You'd be surprised. I used to run a storage place back in the '80s. Not so much framed artwork, but other collectibles? Oh yeah.

Of course, we'd also get assholes who would store dishes that still had food on them.

I hear ya. I don't think any normal person would be that way on television. I'm sure he has some big goons with him at all times (he certainly has enough employees at his place), and he is so smug he probably thinks he is untouchable. He really is such an ass.

He is also probably getting a LOT more foot traffic in his store what with all the free advertising the show does for him.

I think he's such an arrogant asshole that he think's he's untouchable. I don't want to see anyone make him take a dirt nap obviously, but I can't say I'd feel all that bad if I saw a news headline someday that somebody gave him a good ass kicking. Of course he's such an arrogant asshole that one ass beating probably wouldn't faze him. And they do show his full name on the show.

I like this concept of this show, but I'm not sure how much longer I can continue to watch because I literally can't stand that guy that much. This is not one of these "guys you love to hate" things that make you tune in each week. His presence on the show makes it damn near unwatchable iMHO.

Re: Storage Wars

The most recent episode was okay and the "Yeeeuppppp" guy wasn't in it as much, sort of. I do really like the old "collector" guy and suspect in the most recent episode all of the records he found would fetch him a better price on eBay or Craig's List instead of selling them to a record store that has to buy the disks from him and then turn around and sell them for a profit.

Those records would probably get him a really get price from collectors on eBay.

Re: Storage Wars

I like this show though I do wonder how "real" it is but that's true of almost all these reality shows.

I'm drawing a blank but there's another program on with 2 guys who buy storage lockers too but I can't remember what it's called only that one of them looks like the Big Show only a little shorter.

Re: Storage Wars

After watching this week's episode, more and more I'm feeling this totally contrived/staged. So you have these auctions in Las Vegas, and these 4 same guys go from LA to Vegas for these auctions, with the same auction company conducting auction. Just seems staged to me. Maybe not so much the actual bidding, but it seems they (the producers) are setting it up to make sure these 4 guys are going up against each other.
