Part sleuths, part antiques experts, and part cultural historians, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, business partners of Antique Archaeology in Iowa, are professional “pickers,” trolling America’s small towns to salvage rare collectibles and good garbage from regular folks. Their job? To dig through junk piles, abandoned barns, and neglected garages for a chance at unearthing relics of historical, collectible, and pop culture value. Although buying and selling is their livelihood, the thrill is in the chase. Each treasure hunt leads them to fascinating, quirky characters — everyday people with stories about themselves and their artifacts that provide a fascinating look into American life. The new HISTORY series American Pickers traces the highs and lows of the “picking” trade, following Mike and Frank as they get their hands dirty in search of weird and wonderful Americana, from a vintage Harley to a one-of-a-kind Ferris wheel. The pressure mounts as they attempt to turn around each item fast, find just the right buyer, and strike the ultimate deal.

  • "American Pickers" is AWESOME!

    By Amethyst643
    Each episode is unique, and it is always interesting to see what they find. They travel all over America and find a variety of things - autos, bikes, rares, antiques, smalls, signs, and well... a little of everything. I love seeing and learning about all of the things they find - plus discovering their actual value. Great concept - awesome show.

  • Glad I watched the free episode before buying this!!!!

    These guys are disgusting!! They go around preying on old people with little money who are cut off from the big towns and buy their valuable old "junk" for next to nothing and then go and sell it for thousands of dollars. They play dumb about the things they are buying to the sellers and then turn around and tell the camera exactly what the item is and what year it was made. They force themselves on people and buddy up to them to get their stuff and freely admit to hounding people who don't want to sell until they give in. Absolute vultures who pick the bones of senior Americans!!
  • I don't even like antiques and I LOVE this show!

    By LStratts
    Amazing show. I'm totally hooked. Mike and Frank are great, but the best part of the show is the random strangers they meet along the way! Best show on TV, end of story!

  • Why are the last two shows broken into four episodes?

    By elprez1
    Good show, but why are the first eight shows about 44 minutes long, and the last four are about 22 minutes long? Why should we have to pay $1.99 for a 22-minute show?
