I forced myself to watch this show as I'd seen a trailer that featured a) slots and b) my home town. What a load of crap. Are all the programmes of this genre that bad?
So a fella who is supposedly an expert says his 100% complete, original and fully working Space Invaders machine is better than the top ones he's seen sell for £3,800 and then knocks it out to this clown for £1,400.
Cut to Elephant House and the yank buys just a cabinet for the same machine for £550 and sells it on to same guy for £650, believe the TV hype and the boy genius has £100 profit. No mention of commission.
Strangely, I did recognise the family antique mall back in the States, again more hype. You are given to believe this international jet-setting weird looking superstar is heir apparent to this mighty LOS ANGELES empire when in reality it is a pretty run down strip mall affair around 50 miles north of LA in Saugus, but that's nowhere near as exotic is it?
