“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about, websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time. Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.” This is subject to change, however. In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while. For rants promote change, and change can be good—right? Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).
My wife has a new obsession. Okay, I may have caught a couple of episodes out of the corner of my eye, but I didn’t inhale.
This new obsession is called Storage Wars. It comes in two varieties, with the main one being set mostly in [California], and the other in [Texas].
Both are highly addictive (I am told). For the shows follow a group of buyers, who bid on the contents of abandoned storage lockers.
No, there is nothing addictive about the buyers. Although, I think my wife may have a thing for [Barry], who is pictured over there, while the couple of times I have caught the show out of the corner of my eye were when [Brandi] and [Nabila’s] assets were on prominent display.
Oh, and if you are inclined to think that I am plumb stupid, please take notice of the fact that I refrained from including pictures of them. Although, if you follow the links, you might get an idea of what I am talking about.
Getting back to the shows, the addicting part is discovering the hidden treasures that are often found, which leads back to the 800 pound gorilla in the room. For these lockers are being auctioned off after being legally declared abandoned, and with there being genuine treasures in many of them, some sort of tragedy has to be behind their abandonment—albeit merely forgetfulness.
Another aspect to the shows that
we my wife doesn’t
care for is buyers bidding up their competitors just for the sake of meanness. For it would be different when two or more
really want a unit, but it is not entertaining to us her when one is
just bidding to make another pay more.
No, there is not a doubt in my mind that buyers are encouraged to bid one another up for the sake of ratings. Well, so much for A'n'E being a higher-classed network.
