American Pickers: Volume Two DVD Review



Synopsis: In small towns, and along America's back roads, treasures are waiting to be uncovered- valuable relics from our history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages. It takes experts to find them - and turn rust to riches. American Pickers follows two of the most skilled "pickers"- Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology, and his business partner, Frank Fritz- as they hunt down objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value that have been long forgotten by their owners. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history. In this collection, Mike and Frank try to strike a deal with NASCAR Champion Ryan Newman, explore the appropriately named Pickens, South Carolina and try to buy a 300-pound boot.

Review:  American Pickers is a complicated show for us.  We really enjoy collecting and picking..we're pickers ourselves, but the two hosts are so utterly annoying.  They're just douchey to the nth degree.  That being said, the show is still great.  They find a lot of amazing items that they can resell...although it seems like gas station signs and old bicycles are the extent of their personal knowlege, lol.  The second season of American Pickers includes 22 episodes.  This volume 2 DVD includes only the first 8 of those.
