When Rick Harrison got his first look at the Hotchkiss .37 millimeter revolving cannon on 'Pawn Stars' (Mondays, 10PM on History), he said it looked "like hellfire and damnation." Anyone facing down the weapon when it was used in the 1870s might have felt the same way. Harrison was looking at the cannon as a potential investment, and got to try it out with live ammunition. Harrison turned the crank and fired the weapon at a bunch of water-filler barrels, hitting the targets with a force that impressed him. But it was the last barrel, rigged with explosives, that was the clincher. When Harrison hit it, the barrel exploded into a high cloud. Rick was giggling like a school kid the whole time. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/08/09/rick-tests-out-a-revolving-cannon-from-the-1870s-on-pawn-stars-video/
Hardcore 'Star Trek' fans had to be salivating at the collection that walked into the shop on 'Pawn Stars' (Mon., 10PM ET on History). The owner had a massive collection of figures of varying sizes, and many of them were signed by the stars of the various shows and movies. Corey brought in an expert to appraise it after hearing the $14,000 opening offer from the seller. After the appraisal came in at $8-9,000, the negotiations began. The owner tried playing on Corey's sympathy by telling him he has a wedding to pay for, but Corey wasn't playing that game. "It's not my issue, man," he said. "You can get married for 99 cents in the Prius right down the street." http://www.aoltv.com/2011/08/02/massive-stark-trek-collection-for-sale-pawn-stars-video/

When “Antiques Road Show” premiered in America thirteen years ago, it astoundingly became something of a phenomenon. The idea of attaching a monetary figure to all that old junk people collected made for some interesting, if not particularly compelling, television. The problem was, of course, no one ever got to sell their antiques as the show only appraised, and never purchased items or put them up for auction. Also, there were only so many antique vases a fellah could see before wondering what else was on. Enter "Pawn Stars". Following the proprietors of the family owned “Gold & Silver” pawn shop in downtown Las Vegas. “Pawn Stars” takes the appraisal element of “Antiques Road show” and mixes it with a rock n roll vibe, some curse words, a cast of characters only Las Vegas could provide, and most importantly, shows us the money.
