The Terrible Shows My Mother Hooked Me On.

I made the mistake of getting my mom an iPad Mini for Christmas. And now, our time together consists of me laying at the foot of her bed watching shows she put on while she ignores everything and plays Ruzzle or Angry Birds. Thanks Mom.

I yell at the television over how ridiculous these shows are, but I keep watching.

1) Amish Mafia.
Now, at first, I thought it was really stupid and it didn't make sense to me - Amish people are not supposed to be involved in technology and they're certainly not allowed to be on camera. And then after watching a few more episodes, I've justified it.

The people involved in the show are not technically Amish because they were not baptized. So, there's that.

Amish people are known to be very hands off. So, it kind of makes sense that they would want people to take care of things for them - like the woman hanging her undergarments up outside.

And, that's about all the justifications I can make. And those don't make the show better.

2) Storage Wars
"YEPPPPP" drives me crazy.

I'm really interested in some of the stuff that these guys find in these storage units though. Who would keep some of that stuff in there and then just not pay the bill? Our storage unit would be a huge disappointment to these guys - all Christmas ornaments and some Barbies.

Usually though, if this is on, I'll watch it. I don't know why.

3) Hardcore Pawn
I think what attracted me at first to this show was how similar it sounds to "Hardcore Porn."

This show seems incredibly fake. The way these people act - seriously? It's incredibly over the top and I am amazed at what these people think they deserve for their items. I think it's a way better Pawn Shop show than Pawn Stars, but that's not saying much.

4) Pawn Stars
Chumley.

Enough said.
