Have the storage auction tv shows lost their glow ?
« on: July 02, 2013, 08:43:04 AM »
That's a matter of opinion of course (and ratings) but this story from early May, 2013 seems to think so.

Here's a quote from the story and the link to the full story as well.  The quote talks about Darrel's $300,000 to $1,000,00 art find...they're selling for $700 each on his website.

"Storage Wars" has turned a once sleepy $22 billion industry into a field of dreams where people think immediate riches await them. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, most storage units contain mundane household items, and the odds of landing a big score such as the $300,000 worth of Frank Gutierrez artwork that "Storage Wars" cast member Darrell Sheets found last year are fairly slim. (Fans can buy the paintings on his website at $700 each.)

It seems to me that, like most TV shows, the shine has faded some.

For me, personally, I always thought it would be a much cooler concept to see the process of one buyer from bid to sale of goods.  I'd rather see Brandi & Jarrod bid, load, appraise and attempt to sell a unit rather than to see 3 winners decide what their stuff is "worth" while having loaded it onto a truck or get appraisals that may or may not be what a buyer could SELL them for.

And I STILL don't care for the one with Alan and Ton.  Jesus, that one makes Barry seem realistic.
