I am fascinated by the interaction and the dynamics of the Gold family. On one hand, I think a lot of the battles are "highlighted" by the production crew. On the other hand, I can see it pretty close to reality.
Sure they all fight. What friends and family don't? In the end though, they have each other's backs. In the end, it is all about the business.
Maybe that is the answer. It is about the business. Now, the business includes the television show. A show with no action is not much of a show.
So what is my end statement? I really don't know. I do know that I find the show fascinating and I keep watching it.
I have now met Papa Les and both of his children. I have also met Bobby J(aniec), another employee/cast member. They have all been very nice. They were very popular at the Motor City Comic Con last year and again this year.
My only real complaint is that I would love to have the whole family there at once. Then I would probably say I wished Rich was there! Or Dennis. Maybe I know a bit too much about Hardcore Pawn.
