my observations on the shore thing episode 3

I have never gone to jersey for an auction so I cant say for sure BUT I have never been to any auction where 90-95% of the crowd was white

ham radio looks like a plant  so does the rolex

Plants sound right to me. The presence of a quality radio like that in a blue tote (covered by a bad mattress) along with a stuffed animal and some other toy just BEGS to tell us it was planted. They showed no imagination on that one.

For the two guys to find the Rolex (without a band) in a dresser drawer with other loose miscellaneous was more believable, but STILL begs the question of being for real. Now if it turned out to be a knock-off it would have been easier to swallow.

I guess the producers of these shows are like the big banks...TOO BIG TO FAIL.

So let me get this straight. Candy & Courtney's entire storage/warehouse & store is the back of that Chevy Astro Van? They can't buy anything that won't fit in their van. They just cruise up to some side street in New York and open up the doors of their van and start hanging clothes on other peoples fences & privacy walls and thats their store??

They are suppose to be serious storage unit auction buyers? These are the best buyers the producers could find in the entire New York Metro area??   :-[

The producers needed some pizazz; which is exactly why they put the two gay guys and the dog on the show. :-X

Did I here right in the last episode that the girls were bringing the most money they have had to the auction that day, and it was $1500? ($750 a piece) and they were gonna really compete with the big boys??!!!   :-[ :-[

Can they just please fly in that Mark character from LA who carries the purse with wads of cash, his character would be much more fitting for Storage Wars New York.

They should have cast Courtney and Candy for Storage Wars Des Moines, Iowa!!  :P  :D :D :D

By the way, that little one-eyed dog does nothing to add flavor or character or a story line to the two guys from Jersey. Just leave that little rat home! He's neither cute, nor charasmatic, nor interesting. It's Storage Wars New York, they should be carrying a 15 foot python around their neck or Pit Bulls on chains or something!

 Just watched two episodes.

I like the cast better and filmed/edited just a touch different, maybe due to indoor lockers, that I like better.

Entertaining enough but don't think I'll watch anymore.......

Storage Wars New York…Tuesday, 1/15/2013….Long Island City

Not going to do reviews that reveal as much as I have in the past but rather pick maybe 2 to 3 things that stand out.

Joe P. makes a sneaky bid and wins a lkr for $1K. Some of his furniture estimates seem WAY HIGH ! (his total estimate of the lkr’s worth is…..$21,600 plus !

The girls get some drive-in movie speakers….maybe $50 for a set.

Mike gets some sinks and a Jacuzzi tub. His locker was good for the price…$150.

Storage Wars New York…Tuesday, 1/15/2013…. Brooklyn (Bay Ridge)

Joe P. arrives by subway…cool !

Mike’s helper Brandon is long on muscle and short on grey matter.

Girls get a lkr with a little briefcase sized safe. Paid $800 of their $1K cash.
The sexual innuendo lines are frequent in the New York series.

Later when they take a ping pong robot to an expert, the clock on the wall says 11:50 and then 12:00 but when they ask the big question (How much is it worth?) the clock says 11:35. Now 99% of folks won’t even notice the clock, but continuity is continuity to people who edit…or at least it should be.

Chris and Tad go up to $3,850 and Joe P. gets it for $4K.
A cardboard box reveals….Jordan sneakers…boxes and boxes of….COUNTERFEITS !

The old taxi meter he gets is valued at …..  $400…his loss was about $3K. The “legend” flunked out.

Mike gets…baseball cards. I can’t give them away. Also gets walking stilts (I guess the 2013 version of stilts).

Late review of last week’s Connecticut episode.

Girls are showing some skin…a la Brandi.
Mike likes the CT countryside.
The Knot boys like the furniture.
Joe P. likes every lkr.


Chris and Tad get #1 for $1k.
Lkr #2 goes to Joe P. for $2,500.
Lkr #3 goes to Mike for $300

Mike’s lkr has an old gas engine powered cart of some kind.
Two small sailboats….maybe some bucks.

The boys take the stuff to the Frayed Knot…antiques they like.
Silver plate…dime a dozen. Copper lined booze cabinet. Slinky…$50…you’re kidding right?

Joe P. likes to pay big bucks…will he get some profit?
Alabaster clock, purple vase, more over-valued items. One chest looks pretty good.
Room not yet singing. Values an accordion at $1500.  A suitcase has a coronet valued at $2,250.

Looks like the producers wanted to turn on the whore factor and asked Candi to come up with some sexual innuendo one liners.

Good thing this program airs on A & E and not the National Geographic channel, cause based on several of the camera angles from the episodes so far, we would have had many a wild beaver sightings!  :-\

Love how those ladies dig through those garbage bags without wearing gloves, real pros!  :-[
