Storage Wars Season 4 Review “Orange You Glad Dan Sold It Again?” & “Barry’s Angels”

With most shows concluding their seasons for the summer, Storage Wars just keeps trucking along with two more brand new episodes as our night of locker auction goodness gets started with "Orange You Glad Dan Sold It Again?" I was a little surprised, judging by the title of the episode, that the auction didn’t take place in Orange, California. Nope, instead we go to the Extra Storage location in the city where I work: Burbank! Not only are we introduced to the real entertainment capital for the first time, but we were also introduced to a brand new buyer in Rene Nezhoda. He also brought along his too-old-for-tiny-shorts wife Casey, and Dan and Laura were quick to introduce him as a big time player. I didn’t mind him too much, so I’d be totally fine with him becoming a more frequent recurring buyer. Anything is better than the Harris twins! READ MORE...

Storage Wars Season 4 Review “Old Tricks, New Treats” & “The Shrining”

Storage Wars returned tonight with another double whammy of season four episodes, and we start out in the infamous Southern California town of Inglewood in "Old Tricks, New Treats". We have most of the regular buyers returning, plus Ivy, but we had no Darrell and Brandon in this episode! Nope, instead we’ve got the other Tank Top Twins, Herb and Mike. These guys have been on the show before, and I suppose the nicest thing to say about them is that they’re infinitely more watchable than the infuriating Harris twins. At least Herb has the good sense to be humiliated by Mike’s terrible jokes, but it’s clear that their bickering and comebacks are being given to them by the producers. Anyway, Herb and Mike won the first locker for $350 and ended up making a pretty tidy profit. READ MORE...

Storage Wars Season 4 Review “Oysters on the Half Plate” & “The Monster Hash”

After taking a week off from reviewing Storage Wars last week, I’m back with a vengeance tonight with "Oysters on the Half Plate", as our buyers make their way to US Storage in Long Beach. We had everybody in the main cast making an appearance in this episode, even though Jarrod didn’t appear at the auction. The annoying twin brothers Matt and Mark Harris returned tonight, although they definitely weren’t as grating as they were in their last few appearances. Their bickering and bantering all still feels a little staged, especially their whole bit about "Darren" and "Brian" being funny guys. They thankfully didn’t win any lockers, so we don’t have to put up with them bickering their way through any appraisals. READ MORE...

Storage Wars Season 4 Review “All’s Well that Urns Well”

Storage Wars returned tonight with another double dose of season four goodness, but we started out with the somewhat underwhelming "All’s Well That Urns Well". With no special buyers joining the fray, no big wins, and nobody spending more than $250 for any locker, it felt like a somewhat low rent installment. Our buyers all make their way to the City of Orange, and after an awkward sexual exchange between Dan and Laura, and an even more awkward comment by Brandon about Darrell’s right hand, we get right to the bidding. Making a masturbation joke is one thing, Brandon, but making them with your dad is just weird. READ MORE...

Storage Wars Season 4 Review “Storage for Dummies” & “Breathalyze This”

Storage Wars continued its fourth season tonight with "Storage for Dummies", as our buyers (Plus Nabila and Mark Bilelo) make their way to Stanton, California! I was pretty sure that the last episode we saw Mark in would be the last one ever, as he took his own life not long after filming these, but it appears that he still had a couple more episodes in the can before his suicide. My guess is that there will be at least one or two more episodes featuring him, since you would think the producers would include some sort of "In Memoriam" message at the end of one of these episodes to let us know that it’s his last episode.

Storage Wars Season 3 Review “Nobody’s Vault but Mine” & “Still Nobody’s Vault but Mine”

Storage Wars returned tonight with a rare two-parter event as our buyers make their way to Chatsworth with "Nobody’s Vault but Mine" and "Still Nobody’s Vault but Mine". Not only were we introduced to a couple new buyers tonight, but we saw our new buyer Ivy once again, and we also saw what’s possibly the last episode for Mark Balelo. Mark sadly took his own life last month, so it was a bit bittersweet to see him return. I never really liked him too much on the show, but it’s always upsetting to hear about somebody taking their own life in that way. READ MORE...

Storage Wars Season 3 Review “The Big Boy vs. The Heavy Weight” & “The Kook, the Chief, His Son, and the Brothers”

Storage Wars is back everybody! It feels like the longest hiatus ever, as we’ve had to wait exactly three months since last seeing our last episode. With A&E finding another huge success with Duck Dynasty, and now launching a great new series with Bates Motel, A&E has suddenly become a destination channel for millions of people! It used to be that Storage Wars was the biggest success they’ve ever had, but now it’s been switched to Mondays. Thankfully it’s the same ol’ Storage Wars we’ve all come to love! READ MORE...

Storage Wars Season 3 Review “Tustin, Bee Have a Problem” & “Portrait of the Gambler”

Storage Wars  returned tonight with another chunk of two episodes amid a lot of off-air drama involving Dave Hester’s lawsuit against A&E. It’s tough not to feel a little bitter  towards Hester over all of these frustrating legal issues, but maybe episodes like the ones tonight will help ease his transition off our TV. If he’s always going to be this cocky and irritating, maybe we’re better off without him. Sure, he’s always been a bit obnoxious, but tonight I feel like he was especially bad. Is A&E painting him in a bad light because of all of this legal drama? Or am I just reading too much into it? Speaking of Mr. Hester, Dave got the first unit dropped on him for a sizable $3,400. He then, surprisingly, bought unit #2 for $1,700 for a total investment of $5,100. We rarely see our bidders win two lockers in the same day, so this was a bit odd. What’s even more strange is that Dave has  very questionable technique for valuing his stuff. He always says things like "a couple hundred bucks for that" and "those boxes there probably are $100 each". His total value always jumps up exponentially, and you just  know  he’s not going to sell all that for the amount he says he will. I’d love for the show to catch up with him and find out if he’s actually sold that stuff for those amounts. Then he brags about how much money he "made" to our fan favorite Barry, and it just makes it even more frustrating. He ends up making a "profit" of $6,280, but in reality I’d be surprised if he even makes back enough money on those units to cover his original investment.

Storage Wars Season 3 Review “Jurassic Bark” & “A Tale of Two Jackets”

Tonight’s  Storage Wars  double header  starts out with the entertaining "Jurassic Bark", as everybody makes their way to the small residential community of Mission Hills . Well, everybody except for the Sheetz boys and one of Hester’s tires, that is. Barry bought the first locker of the day that included a futon and a book about pasta. He ended up finding a few wrought iron dogs, and ended up selling the locker for a rare profit at $1,440. I realized last week that they’ve started adding smaller items to Barry’s values, and they’ve continued doing that tonight. They tell us that the value of the futon was $40, but why are we hearing this? Barry’s not going to go sell this couch, is he? He doesn’t have a store like the rest of the cast. He’s only ever added items to his locker value if they were items that he was planning on keeping, but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.
