Re: Storage Wars

I wonder if Darrell Sheets' constant denigration of his son is part of the show? If it isn't, then he is a giant douchebag, the way he treats him.

Re: Storage Wars

I suspect it is. Though, on the flip side, I'm sure Jarrod really does keep his balls in Brandi's purse.

Re: Storage Wars

It has less to do with emasculation, and more to do with the idea that Jarrod gets himself into trouble only to blame Brandi for it. She's not perfect, but she does seem to be a lot smarter and more on her game than Jarrod.

Also, Barry is awesome. I know that's not what we're talking about, but it's worth repeating.

Re: Storage Wars

Darrell's treatment of Brandon is rather douchey...but they also seem to be relatively on good terms. It was rather lame that the show attempted to create an "arc" of sorts with the conflict between them last season. It just was so obviously contrived and didn't go anywhere after two episodes basically.

Barry is the best character on the show, and the reason why I started watching in the first place.

Re: Storage Wars

Barry really is awesome, I'd love to hang out with him doing this shit. He'd make it fun and interesting.

Re: Storage Wars

It'd be a hoot to be his sidekick and then go for a beer or a burger afterwards. He seems like that type of guy.

Re: Storage Wars

Barry's my favorite too, although while he is dubbed with the nickname "The Collector", I've noticed that he really doesn't treat potentially collectible items with the kind of care that one would expect from a collector. He has a tendency to roughly unwrap things and throw them around back in the box he found them in without rewrapping them, and I've lost count of the number of times he's randomly pulled huge stacks of boxes and storage containers crashing down without much regard to what could potentially be inside. There's a bit of a disparity there.

Although I must say, I always look forward to seeing what kind of bizarre vehicle he shows up to these auctions in. I honestly wonder where he finds some of those contraptions. That art-deco boat-car was quite something!

Re: Storage Wars

I love Barry, but am always a bit alarmed when he walks away from a bunch of stuff that Jarrod and Brandy could have made money on. Especially in the beginning when they weren't doing that well.

Re: Storage Wars

For all we know he could have offered it to them. I've seen him make deals with Jarrod and Brandi before. Then again, Jarrod strikes me as the proud type.

Re: Storage Wars

I don't think he's a collector in that he's looking for collectibles and valuables he's just looking for things he finds interesting and worth hanging on to.

Re: Storage Wars

^ Yep. I actually agree with Trekker here. He's not in this to make money as the others are, I believe he has the most money out of all them, he's there to find unique and interesting items, thus the reason why he has held on to so many things over the last three seasons instead of selling them.

There's plenty of times he's found things that are mostly utterly worthless but has kept them simply because it was interesting looking or had an interesting use/history.

Yeah, those poor, poor souls. I bet they make so little from being on the show, even during the first season. The cash they get from the auctions is clearly their main source of revenue so when they take a hit one week, you know they're seriously suffering!

Re: Storage Wars

Did anyone ever explain why that one guy who worked for Jarrod and Brandi all of a sudden blew a gasket and walked off? He was seen occasionally on big loads and always seemed pretty laid back. Then all at once he started getting pissed off about being stepped on, etc., and I don't recall either of them treating him with anything other than respect. Granted, we don't get to see what is off camera, but it still seemed a little odd and I don't think he's been back since.
