Pawn Stars is the hit American reality television series about the daily activities at World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, a 24-hour pawning business in Las Vegas, Nevada. It follows the lives of the shop’s operators – the Harrison family – and their staff, as they bargain over prices, learn the unique history behind new items and (of course) feud amongst each other.
Weeknights at 8pm and 8.30pm
If you can’t get enough Pawn Stars, American Restoration is the spin-off featuring Rick Dale – an antiques expert from the show. He runs Las Vegas’ Rick’s Restorations, a family business that identifies and restores beautiful and historically significant objects. Rick’s on hand throughout the series to delve into the unique stories behind the items during the restoration process.
Weeknights at 10pm
Mountain Men follows the unbelievable real escapades of men who live in astounding daily conditions in the wild. Firstly there’s Eustace Conway, who lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. He teaches visitors survival skills and earns his keep using ancient techniques to harvest firewood. In Alaska, there’s Marty Meierotto, who traps animals in the snow to collect furs. In Montana, there’s lion hunter Rich Lewis… need I say more?
Weeknights at 7pm and 7.30pm
Does Storage Wars need any introduction? Storage Wars follows the lives of a group of professional buyers who bid on the content of disused storage containers. They hope to sell the items inside for a profit, but there’s one little catch: they cannot properly examine the containers’ content before bidding. Prepare for explosive auction wars, bidder feuds and brilliant drama all round.
Sundays from October 9 at 10pm and 11pm
Danger is the name of the game in Ax Men, which explores the lives of logging families around the United States. These fearless individuals risk their lives day and night in the most isolated of environments, all to retrieve the timber that pays for their keep. Loggers handle dangerous equipment on a daily basis and frequently put themselves in situations that would drive health and safety officers mad, but it makes for great television.
