Pawn X-Change

With apologies to Breaking Bad and Mad Men , the most revolutionary television series to come out in the past five years is The History Channel's Pawn Stars . The show has singlehandedly taken what was perceived as the seediest of retail subgenres known to man and transformed its image into that of a family-friendly archaeological playground. Yet even though Pawn Stars is a reality show, it doesn't reflect the everyday business of pawning. But lest that burst your bubble, White Center's Pawn X-Change is orderly and professional enough to be mistaken for a mini-Sears, and your ability to talk a price down will make you feel as though you've just pulled one over on the Old Man, even if no one really ever gets the better of the Harrison patriarch.
