Michael Durr has been reviewing movies for the better part of fifteen years now. He primarily enjoys thrillers, sci-fi, animation and even a little courtroom drama. His favorite films include Escape from New York, the Goonies and anything with Alyssa Milano. When he’s not praising Kurt Russell as the greatest actor of our time or scratching his head over a David Lynch flick, he’s spending time at home in Texas with his lovely wife, Lori and his amazing son. How they put up with him is a mystery, but even Basil Rathbone doesn’t have the time to solve that one.

    Barry is my hero! I would love to hang out with him for a day just to pick his brain.

    I do have to agree that some sort of extras would have been pretty awesome. And I also agree that Hester the Yap leaving would not prevent me from watching the show, but might encourage me to catch it more often.

    Great review, Michael.

    One thing I find highly suspect about this show is what the 4 teams claim they can make back on the merchandise, especially in the case of Dave and Darrell, who seem far more defensive of their egos when on camera. Whereas Jarrod, Brandi, and Barry are shopping to genuinely stock up for the expansion of their store or for their own collection, respectively, Darrell and Dave are fighting to meet bottom lines on units where they spend far more than anyone else. The numbers they yell out as being able to make on construction equipment and other items always seem high, as if they’re desperate not to have it look like they just overpaid. Even if the numbers are accurate, this turnaround isn’t right away, and it’s far more likely they’re eating their investments for at least 6 months before anyone buys what they’ve found.

    Great points William (and Sarah as well :)). I find the values also suspect at times. I trust when I hear Jarrod, Brandi, Barry more often than not. Darrell, a little less, but as you read about him, he’s been doing this for 30 something years. Apparently, he’s doing something right. Dave? He talks on both sides of his mouth so often, it hurts. He also recently moved on to the auction business, so I have a feeling he got tired of the rat race (since that is what Storage auctions really have become). Still love the show thogh 🙂
