even with his weight loss and new teeth chumley still acts and looks like a slob. he's a stooge, a fake disgusting looking slob. can't stand his constant appearance on every other frame of film. he gets paid fifteen thousand a episode and he annoys most viewers. if people do like this character they would also believe wrestling is real. give the viewer some credit.
I used to love the show when It first came on air. I watched it strictly because I'm somewhat of a geek and like learning about unusual things. I know all reality television is scripted to some degree so that doesn't even bother me. I don't feel the least bit sorry for people who come into a pawn shop. They are adults and by the time you understand how a pawn shop operates, you should know that they have to at least double their money to stay in business. I am sick of having the show gravitating towards the employees instead of the real star, the merchandise. A lot of things irritate me. I get irritated reading posts where people have no grasp of the English language. They use all capital letters and no punctuation. We make enough errors when we try and post properly. Rick has gotten to the point where he is almost too much to take. He laughs at his own jokes, all of them. The false emotion he shows when supposedly exasperated by Chum is nauseating. The long breath, gritting of teeth, etc. Corey recently went on a biker ride and almost got thrown in jail in Jefferson City, Missouri for taking a whiz on a bar. Chumlee gives a bad name to every hard working person that struggles to put food on the table. In the real world, he would've been fired long ago, for any number of reasons. I can't even name them all. I am not a fan of body art, but i could deal with that if he and Corey would just wash their hair. I went on Celebrity Net Worth and saw where Chumlee is worth $8,000,000 dollars. I am college educated and worked hard my entire life and will not see that kind of money except at a bank. Seriously, I think the show has jumped the shark. It is too broken to fix. I look at Chumlee and know that there are a large number of people that think he is special. Attitudes like he portrays have helped ruin our country. He shows the arrogance of someone who thinks the world owes him a living. I am through watching it, because it wouldn't be fair to trash it and then watch. Pawnography is worse. It shows the arrogance of all three, along with Christopher Titus. The production values are so bad that you can tell it is basically done on a webcam. If you look closely and have a good tv, you can tell that the video is computer generated. I would love to see a show similar to this. Maybe someone can produce a show that is a cross between Antiques Roadshow and Pawn Stars.
I like to see the items that come into the shop but I hate how greedy they can get and how they take advantage of people. But it is a pawn shop and they make their money off of desperate people. What relation is Chumley What a load. He wouldn't last a week in any other job.
Loved this show at the outset. For some time now, however, the relationship between Rick and Chumlee is downright irritating. NO one would put up with this guy, so why write his lines like they are? 'Ol Chum has long lost his appeal and reason to exist on this show. I am watching it less and ALWAYS fast-forwarding when Chumlee appears. If, from other reviews I have read, Chumlee continues as he is portrayed, good-bye to this show.
His uniqueness, his value to the show has worn extremely thin. I'm already fast forwarding thru any parts where he is in the show. He needs to be fired, he can try to find another job where his lazy, disrespectful attitude works, good luck with that.
Rick needs to put chums smart mouth and disrespectful ass in his place. If any of my son's friends would talk to me like that they'd pick their ass up off the floor. I think I may just stop watching this show cause if Rick never stands up to this kid it has to be all fake.
I'm just glad I record this on my DVR so i can jump past all the parts that involve Chumplee. He's not even worth watching when he is dealing with a customer. I can almost see in my minds eye the cue cards he is reading from behind the camera.
The show is getting unwatchable with Corey turning into as much as an unkempt wiseass as Chumplee. Every show recently has Chumplee being more and more disgusting and disrespectful. Does the History channel really think people are to believe he would not have been fired long ago. I just watched the last episode I will not waste my time watching as long as the idiot is on the show!!
This scripted pretend show has to change back !! I want the old show back. Chum selling shoes in the shop. Rick pretends to get mad. I used to feel sorry for Chum but he is just hurting the show. The show is so scripted. The show has slid so far it's hard to understand why they don't realize it themselves. If the want to keep Chum just bring him in for a couple of minutes.
Chum has outlived his usefulness. It was great when they used him as a shoe consultant, but now he's just a scum bag. His lying at the Super Bowl was the beginning of the end. You use to feel sorry for Chum, now he's just a scum bag & replaceable. I think with so many college educated unemployed people seeking work; Chum has become a slap in the face of those trying to make a living. The only reality left in this show is that stupidity gets old. It's hard to get my wife to watch the show and as soon as "Homicide Hunters "comes out with new episodes; Pawn Stars will lose this house hold.
I wanted to make another review, and couldn't start a new one, so I'll just add to this one. After a few more shows I finally concluded that this show is not a reality show at all....... This idiotic lazy character they named chumlee is not possible to be real !! In real life they would not hesitate for a instance to fire him with no chance of getting the job back and have police escort him from the property if necessary !
The writers really need to think how unnatural they are making Corey(mouthy smart azz) and Chum(completely stupid) come off ! Turn them into normal characters !!
I want the old show back. This scripted pretend show has to change back !! If they must have chumwhatever on, quit with all the idiotic comments !! If the show was real and they felt they were obligated someway, they should pay him to stay away from the shop and someone should point out the purpose of shampoo to him !!!... On the other hand, if he ever lost his job, he should be able to hire in at a circus easily !.. I am sorry about being such a grouch, but guys, if it needs to be scripted, maybe some new writers might help !!.. I want my old favorite Pawn Stars back.
These are all annoying such as rick's laugh and corey beening the biggest douchbag out of all of them Well their all douchbags plus like to rip ppl off and items twice as much then what its worth this show and pawnography is horrible. One more Douchbags!! Anyone agree here?
How many times have you heard that??? Really?? is there anything this Rick guy DOES know??? Actually, ill answer that one myself, it seems pretty apparent that the only thing he knows is how to take advantage of people when the chips are his buddy comes over and tells him what the item is to begin with,and how much it may be worth, he then begins to rip people off, so i guess there is something he advantage of should be proud of yourself!
It`s really good but the problem is that he might call in a friend even though he hates the item. But I really love when they do put the history in the show. I don`t care about the characters I could care less. I watch it for the history and becuase the idea of it being a real pawn shop is really cool.
The reality show Pawn Stars is far from being real.
The History Channel contacts collectors from around the US and asks them to take one of their rare or collectable items to the show for filming. Travel expenses and lodging are paid for by the History Channel.
The items being brought in are all known about before it arrives at the store. So when you see Rick, or Cory, talking like they are an expert on that specific item, that's because they know ahead of time what's going to be filmed for the show and have studied up on that item. So unlike what Rick says at the start of the show, that you never know what will come thru the door, believe me, they do know.
Some items that are on the show are brought in with no intentions of ever being sold or pawned. There brought in just to fill in for more filming time for an episode.
About the only thing that is real about the show is the negotiating on prices. The History Channel does not predetermine before hand what the seller will get for their item.
BTW, if they ever make a cartoon based off of Pawn Stars, will Homer Simpson play Rick Harrison?
Episode: GO FOR CHUM . I ask you to reconsider if giving that man $6,000 for that autogragh collection was an honorable deal. Marlon Brando autograghs ALONE I have seen go for as much as $1700 on simple pictures. Every one of the autograghs you showed, of the (hundreds?) he had, were MAJOR stars. ex. Jimmy Stewart, Dean Martin, Paul Newman, John Wayne, you know the rest. I love your show guys, you should make it right with that poor guy. Do you want a bad reputation for yourselves and your fun and entertaining show. Do you really want others to think that's how they will be treated. All of those vintage and dated autograghs, authenticated by your own expert, and you only gave him $6000!!! for ALL of them. We all know you need to make a profit but come on guys.... PLZ restore our faith that you will give people a fair shake regardless of their ignorance of what they are selling. I'm sure you'll agree that taking advantage of good yet uniformed people is not something to feel good about
I've been a devoted viewer since the beginning. I love learning about all the unusual items. (Its a shame that Rick's amazing knowledge on so many subjects doesn't get appreciated by his family). Now, because the show seems to feature Chumlee more often, the whole tone of the show has changed. He used to be entertaining in his original persona as the "Village Idiot" ... bumbling and mildly charming. With the success of the show, he's become grating, entitled, and aggressively insubordinate. In any other business, he would have been fired many times by now. So, sadly, whenever I see that Chum is going to be featured, I reach for the remote. . - You'd think that with all the money he has, he'd have money leftover after his creepy teeth whitening to buy shampoo and a haircut! The last straw for me was watching him floss his teeth while working the front counter!! Yuck!!
Show used to focus on the "stuff" ... with a side of guys bugging each other. I just hope Rick didn't tip the unprofessional nail tech. The owner should fire her. He'll never get another manicure & who cares if she didn't say it in front of him, "if he would shut up and let me do my job". She needs to get another job.
corey its not just a dog im so pissed at you. i want you to stay outside all day in jeans and longsleeve shirt socks n would you feel? dogs get hot they have feelings and emotions. they wanna be part of a family not tied up in the back yard or left outside all the time waiting that his new family will come and show him love and affection and do training. if you get a dog and leave it outside all the time please dont get one. they are pack animals the crave being in a ashamed of your i agree with the review by jwycliffe, its getting ridiculous the crude treatment of each other.
I always was (and still am), a big fan. Watch every show. BUT Chumlee's new teeth are freaking me out!!! Some 'improvements' can be overdone. Unnaturally distracting! Plus, a side note for the intellectual, avid reader Rick. CALvary is a place outside Jerusalem. CAValry, is a unit of mounted soldiers. It's been repeated on several shows now. Just thought I'd respectfully help the 'smart' one on the show.
Used to be a huge fan, but I stopped watching. Pawn Stars was interesting when the show focused on the store, costumers, the merchandise and the merchandise experts. Lately the show is less about these and seem to be more about the main cast, their personal lives, their bad habits, their mindless sarcasms toward each other, etc. Too much focus on Chumlee (I personally believe he is a very smart guy but they present him as being "dumb"); Corey, smart guy too, but is portrayed as a spoiled brat. Rick knows his history and the Old Man gets the best quotes award. To sum up, they all seem to be complaining about too much work, not enough work being done, and asking for pay raises and promotions when we all know they are making a lot of money. Magic question: Is "Pawn Stars" a reality show or a sitcom? Lately it seems to be the latter.
Used to be an interesting show when it was all about the history of the objects being brought in. Now it's getting to be more and more scripted garbage. Chumlee is the laziest, most disrespectful employee I've ever seen, and he obviously stays employed because they think he's necessary for ratings. He wouldn't last 5 minutes in a real job. And Corey is a spoiled ass, riding Daddy's coattails. Rick's the only one there with a brain and a work ethic, and they treat him like garbage - take the Cinco de Mayo party episode for example. I rarely watch the show anymore, mainly because I can't stand Chumlee. It's a formerly good show that's been ruined.
I was watching last Thursday's show. Rick wanted to have a Cinco de Mayo party, so Chum said he would get all the stuff. Then, Chum, Corey, and The Old Man decided they didn't want Rick to come to the party, so they gave him the wrong place to go. I know this was all probably planned out, but the bullying and meanness to Rick has gone just too far. If this kind of thing continues, I will stop watching the show.
Cory needs a wake up sarcastic, punk attitude towards the customers is a rides the coattails of his father and him work at Taco Bell, where most kids work at his age, and clean he will appreciate his position and customers them, you wouldn't be around, for Chumlee, who couldn't love is real, kind and he doesn't have a 4.0. But, I would rather see him get a raise, than Cory continue to ride on the coattails of success his family has created. GROW UP YOU WILL HAVE THE BUSINESS AND NO ONE WILL SUPPORT YOU.
chumlee ,is he really that stupid and disrespectful my friend s and family agree if he doesnt shape up we are not going to support your show, i know we are only a few but this is how it starts, chum needs to stop being a ass and start repecting you and your father ,you both are his employers
