Les Gold Stars in Hardcore Pawn

Image from Wikipedia
 In April or May I was introduced to a show called Hardcore Pawn by a friend of mine. It’s about Les Gold and his family who own a pawn shop in Detroit.  The first time I watched it, I was hooked.  I know there are shows like Pawn Stars but I like Hardcore Pawn because they focus on the family dynamics versus what is actually being pawned and what it is worth. Of course people go and pawn things and they show that, but most of the show is about Seth and Ashley who are Les Gold’s children and how they are kind of in a turf war over American Jewelry and Loan. They also show a lot of the people that come in to pawn stuff, most of them are eccentric and outrageous. I sometimes wonder if they are for real. I have never been to Detroit, I have heard some scary stuff about it, but I am convinced that not everyone from there is crazy.  With all shows they always show the craziest stuff because it is good for ratings, and frankly it would be boring. It wouldn’t be Hardcore Pawn, it would be BORING.  There is also this really hot guy named Bobby J and I could just stare at him for hours. They just finished up the third season, and I hope there is a season 4.  There was only a month break between season 2 and 3, hopefully they won’t make me wait too long.  You can see it on TruTv at 9pm, you can see older episodes before and after. 
Do you watch Hardcore Pawn? What do you think of it?
