I personally think more of Hardcore Pawn in set up for the cameras (staged). How much interest would anyone have it watching a regular pawn shop? In most cases, "reality" tv shoes have to pay the people to put them on camera. They probably just pay them to do stupid shit.

honestly, if i was their dad, i'd smack them both at this point. i'd be embarrassed that my grown ass kids act like that!

i figure as much but there has to be some truth in there. and even acted, the idea of people acting the fool like that is amusing.

I think there is probably very little truth to the show at all.

I wonder if a lot of the incidents there are staged to keep the viewers watching?

I tend to agree. I find it funny a lot of the shows on "Tru TV" aren't true at all.

I would probably just say that I don't want/need another laptop. I don't care how people spend their money but I don't need to know about some guy's coke addiction.



That show makes me never EVER want to go to Detroit lol.

If he could prove it was really his then I would, he is going to get his drugs either way.

It is set up. My aunts brother works there and my SO has been in there. I mean there are some crazy people in Detroit and people really do act that way in real life but it's all staged.

People act that way all over the place, not just in Detroit.

I want to smack the shit out of the sister. Seriously. And her dad enables her behavior.



I watched the same episode last nite and thought good for them. I doubt I'd buy their stuff from them either in all honesty. Not if they admitted it was for something illicit, like drugs or whatever.

yeah i don't think the dad should enable either one of them like he does.
