What are you watching?
A&E has won the bidding with Storage Wars!
I will confess that I had no interest at all in this show when it first was being advertised. But. I was really wrong - this show is fun, interesting and has the just right "weird".factor to keep it entertaining.
Storage Wars follows four professional buyers as they scour storage units that have been repossessed for non-payment.. According to the A&E website, "Part gamblers, part detectives, these seasoned veterans have found everything from coffins to the world’s most valuable comic book collection, paying as little as ten dollars for items valued in the millions."
The cast of characters range from professional storage unit buyers to the new young couple who own a thrift store and attempt to outbid the seasoned veterans in order to add merchandise for their second hand store.
It is amazing and shocking to see what people have left in storage units. I would assume they would come and remove what they could before the repossession, but I know how life has twists and turns and we've all had our share of life taking a weird turn here and there.
It is a half hour show that moves along at a rapid pace. Check it out - I think you will all be as amazed as I am at the world of purchasing storage lockers. I had no idea this world existed, but I am finding it fascinating following these four buyers to see how high they can outbid and outwit each other.
It airs on A&E on Wedbesdays at 9:30 p.m.
