Cajun Pawn Stars Could Be New Hit

Now, there is a point at which something original does not need a sequal or spin-off. Case in point, the hit reality show, Pawn Stars, is indeed a hit. The amount of attention Corey, Chumlee, and the crew receive has grown substantially since its debut. Being in its fourth season, there appears to be more of the same and less of Corey; he lost 115 pounds. At any rate, the whole notion that another pawn reality TV show is necessary or will be popular is a stretch at best. Move the concept to a part of the country where community spirit about being Cajun is strong and proud, then kick it a few times in the teeth and you get the Cajun Pawn Stars.

I say “…kick it in the teeth…” because the folks have apparently not entirely welcomed this show to their neighborhood, and yet, they are going to get this nation-wide coverage anyway, like it or not. Some comments on the Internet are not even close to being favorable. It makes you wonder what the producers, creators, and so on, were thinking and who they did not bother to speak with to get a feel for the cultural response to their idea. Of course, all of this is opinion that opposes the new series.

On a lighter side, the show is promoting a little twist to shake up the usual pawning aspect of the show. For example, instead of seeing a lot of people sell gold, jewelry, or their fancy watches, you are likely to see a bovine beast traipse across the floor or a donkey grace the television set. Yes, this will be entertaining to some. Let’s agree to give this series a chance and see just how much it makes you laugh and smile. Who knows? It could be a huge hit and become a pleasant surprise.
