    (January 1, 1997- )
    Airs on PBS

    You'd be lucky to see anyone under 70 on the show.
    Antique is just a fancy word for junk.
    Some of the junk, for whatever reason, is appraised at thousands of dollars.
    Because nobody wants to see an old table they sold to someone at a garage sale for $5 appraised for over $100,000.
    Antiques compete with newly manufactured goods which are usually better, without any benefit for the worker that made them.
    After eight years, it had already gone through three hosts.
    It is very predictable. The incredulous host will ask, 'Do you have any idea how much this is worth?!' Then the granny/laymen will reply, 'I have no idea!'
    They had two appraisers Russ Pritchard III and his partner George Juno, who appeared on the show to increase their reputations and bilk sellers out of money.
    Its a great show for people interested in different cultures.
    Its hilarious when people find out their priceless family heirloom is a fake.
    It appeals to a broad audience of people.
    It proves that people will buy ANYTHING.
    The show will take steps to protect those who unwittingly bring in really valuable things with armed guards.
    The most valuable item on the show was a rare Navajo blanket worth $500,000.
    It goes to different towns in search of people with diamonds in the rough.
    It originated in Great Britain and then spun-off into Canada after its success in the US.
