Tuesday, November 15, 2011: <I>Storage Wars</I>

Never thought I'd be addicted to a show about people buying other people's trash, but yet I'm genuinely excited for a new season of Storage Wars. Particularly since it airs on Tuesdays now, which is far more convenient for my DVR.

If you haven't watched this A&E series, it's about a bunch of guys (and one plucky gal) who go around to storage facilities where lockers that haven't been paid for get auctioned off. Then the buyers look through the trash and hope that there is some treasure in there. What I've learned from this series? People put some strange shit in storage lockers: broken crap, old college furniture, random dirty clothing. Why bother? Why not just trash it instead of paying for a locker for any length of time? And if you actually have decent stuff in there (I have seen several filled with materials from defunct businesses), why don't you pay your bills, or find a new home for that stuff?

Its addictive reality television for some reason, maybe because of the not-so-serious rivalries that occur between Dave and... everyone else. But mostly, I just love Barry. He's so eccentric and bizarre and clearly has some magical disposable income that allows him to bid for the thrill of the chase... instead of because he's trying to turn a major profit. Can't wait to see what ridiculous gimmick he comes up with this time around to try and outwit his fellow hunters.
