With Storage Wars already a huge hit in the United States, it was only a matter of time before the addictive must-watch “reality” show spawned a Canadian counterpart. And the fine folks at OLN have finally made it happen.

Storage Wars Canada will premiere sometime this summer and if you’ve never seen the show, consider yourself lucky and I mean that in the best possible way. The series, about people who buy abandoned storage containers, hoping to make a profit off of what they find inside, has sucked away more hours of my life than perhaps any other show on television. Any time it’s on A&E, I immediately get end up wasting days or weeks, compelled and curious by drama and suspense of the trial and tribulations of the people who buy these mysterious containers. The advantage of seeing how some people live and what they choose to store is an added bonus. I mean, who doesn’t love a little voyeurism, right.

I do have some beef with the overly-produced show, which features cast members obviously being fed lines and witty responses. There’s also been reports in the USA of producers tampering with containers to up the drama, but really, who cres. It’s mindless and fun television, that’s devilishly addictive!

The first season of the Canadian edition will feature 36 half-hour episodes, which is a huge order. I’m guessing and hoping that means that the network must have a lot of faith in the brand and hopefully, the cast!

Speaking of the cast, why don’t we meet them, shall we?[one_half]

  1. Hey! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Cheers

  2. I think the reason Rick and Cindy don’t drive because they both look like recovering alcoholics, I think their daughter drives them to the auctions

  3. Hi this is the only contact info I could find I had to stop watching the show the reason, the way the locks are cut off I have been a health and safety rep for 20 years and now working on my occupational health and safety I don’t know why a wrench is not used to hold the lock while it’s being cut I don’t know how someone has not cut their fingers or hand off while cutting the lock in such an unsafe manner please could you change the way this is done

    1. It’s the lamest excuse for a show period . Couldn’t make Canadians look more like hicks. Trailer park boys is ten times better. That is quite the reason for not watching though lol because they don’t cut the locks right that’s hilarious. And pretty sure you mean channel locks or pliers. A wrench lol do they make one for that ? Oh a full face mask heat proof gloves fire proof coveralls safety vest , maybe barricades keep back 20 feet. Safety rep welcome to the real world lolol
