Re: Storage Wars

Yeah, seems like Dave's more in the "back row" this time, maybe his behavior on the show hasn't been good for his business(es)?

Re: Storage Wars

Actually, funny you mentioned Dave, because there was a small segment with him explaining to us that he sold his thrift shop and was looking for a different place, but he was too late (it was supposed to be a "dream location") to get it, someone beat him to the punch. He mentioned taking some losses as well and hasn't really been much on the show this season I don't think.

I get his mentality...the whole serious business gimmick, and I respect his drive and passion for what he does, but really if he wasn't such a dick all the time...but I guess every show needs a villain

Re: Storage Wars

Yeah, I saw the episode with him looking to buy a new place, or whatever. But considering some of the money we saw him making on the show, including the 30K in party lights/gear he sold, you'd think his financial situation would be better or something. I'm guessing man-purse dude is more the "villain" now as everyone were even rallying with Dave to take Manpurse down.

Re: Storage Wars

Ugh Mark...he's a doofus. The Nintendo episode with him was absolutely hilarious!! Where he thought he had found an original model NES...but turned out to be just a normal regular one, I was laughing with Darryl on that one! I can see why no one likes him on the show. I think they revealed on one of the post season retrospective shows that Barry or Darryl had actually made the most money out of the cast in two seasons. Wikipedia has a list of their earnings to date I believe.

Re: Storage Wars

Barry is awesome. He is pretty much how I'd like to be at his age.

Re: Storage Wars

Barry is basically why I started watching the show in the first place...well him...and Brandi Seriously though, Barry is the best thing about "Storage Wars". He oozes coolness!

Re: Storage Wars

It just makes me feel sorry for the people who have died or lack the money to pay and have their possessions bought by these creeps.

Re: Storage Wars

Why are they creeps? I have thought about that as well...apparently storage units are abandoned if rent is not paid for three months. That could mean any of number of things. To me that is part of the risk of putting stuff in a storage locker in the first place, I'm pretty sure the original people are well aware of the risks and policies.

Re: Storage Wars

I love this show. Barry is awesome.

Dave was making some noise last season about not resigning for this season if he didn't get what he thought he deserved. Maybe they took him up on that.

Re: Storage Wars

I hadn't heard that about Dave, but it sure does sound like something he would do.

Or in jail... And, yeah, I don't have a lot of sympathy. Put it in your will! Plus, the vast majority of the stuff is junk anyway.

On a different note: does anyone actually believe Darryl and Brandon are not getting along? That felt like the most contrived "storyline" on the show ever as I was watching.

Re: Storage Wars

I agree it feels contrived. I did laugh I think with last week's episode when Daryl asked him to go with him to the auction only like an episode after supposedly cutting him loose, the expression on Brandon's face was like WTF? Really? LOL.

They're not creeps, many have broad personalities, sure, but creeps?

As much of as an asshole as he is Dave seems to be a businessman who makes a living off of selling second-hand merchandise. Same with Darryl. Brandi and Jerrod are also in business together and actually they seem to have a much larger business than is led on in the show, they have a decent sized consignment shop as well as the Outlaw line of clothing. Then there's Barry who's just an old man out for rare, odd, items and antiques. Someone who seemingly has a good cache of cash.

Besides, if someone put stuff in a storage locker and circumstances led to it going into default for a few months what else is supposed to happen? The locker place has to get the space back in order to use it again and they'd probably prefer to get some of the money they're owed back in the process. Are they supposed to just nicely hand over the stuff to their former client? What would then be the incentive to even pay the rent if you can keep your stuff in there for months, not pay, and get it back?

I recall hearing on this show, too, that someone had seen their family member's stuff on the show as it was a locker they didn't know their deceased family member had, they contacted the show and the locker winner worked with the family to recover some of the more valuable/desired items.

if you abandon an apartment full of stuff after an certain amount of time the landlord is allowed to sell it in order to cover his losses as well.

Dave must be selling an awfull lot of stuff to be able to maintain that huge building and all that staff. I watched an end of the season interview type of episode and they were saying that auction prices had gone through the roof since the show began. Tons of people showing up at auctions after watching the show thinking they were going to hit gold at every auction.
