I just finished watching "American Pickers" on the History Channel. I missed the premiere last week. Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, a duo of antiques dealers and treasure hunters, are on a labor of love mission to recycle America's past. They dig through junk piles, abandoned barns and basements for hidden memorabilia. Kind of like the antiques roadshow, but a much funkier travel version.
I'm not quite sure if I like the show or not. Perhaps I need to see some more episodes. Has anyone seen it yet? What do you think?
I appreciate the History Channel's new “National Treasures” programming genre in which relics belonging to everyday people tell a history of America.
American Pickers airs Monday evenings on the History Channel. Check your local station (if in the US) for times, and let me know what you think!
