American Pickers: Volume 3 [DVD]
Manufacturer: A&E HOME VIDEO Model: 25176751
Product DescriptionHISTORY's ratings record-breaker is back for a third installment!In small towns, and along America's back roads, treasures are waiting to be uncovered - valuable relics from our history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages. It takes experts to find them - and turn rust to riches. AMERICAN PICKERS follows two of the most skilled "pickers" - Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology, and his business partner, Frank Fritz - as they hunt down objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value that have been long forgotten by their owners. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history. In AMERICAN PICKERS: VOLUME 3 Mike and Frank explore a century-old amusement park, pick their way through a geodesic dome and after years of begging, finally allow Danielle to get in on the action.DISC 1: Hobo Jack / Laurel and Hardy / Frank Flips / Mike's BreakdownDISC 2: Pint-Sized Picker / A Banner Pick / Danielle Goes Picking / What's In The Box? Fans of the History Channel's compulsively watchable American Pickers won't want to miss these eight episodes of Mike and Frank on the road to find gold dust among America's trash. To be clear, this set contains eight hour-long episodes from the second season of American Pickers; it's not season three. But it's still great entertainment value for the buck. These episodes find Mike and Frank wandering the back roads of the middle of the country in search of buried (in some cases, truly buried) treasure to resell. The stars are collegial and always friendly and respectful of the folks with whom they deal, which is part of the appeal of American Pickers. Like its slightly more upscale cousin, Antiques Roadshow, it ends up being heavy on the interesting arcana of history, and of what Americans just love collecting. Some of the more memorable pieces in these episodes include a skeletal military "training gun" from 1919--an amazing contraption twice the size of a regular rifle so that a sergeant could easily demonstrate its loading and firing to new soldiers. Other treasures include a working slot machine, and the always-popular metal oil-company signs Mike and Frank live for. (Don't mention the vintage Honda that got sold just before they arrived to check it out… it's still a sore subject with Frank.) As always, this set of episodes of American Pickers gets the viewer wondering just what his or her own junque might be worth--and also ends up teaching a lot about American history, through its old memorabilia. OK, time to hit the road! --A.T. Hurley

Brad Meltzer's Decoded: Season 2 [DVD]
Manufacturer: A&E HOME VIDEO Model: 25195331
Product DescriptionBest-selling author and history buff Brad Meltzer has studied and written about some of the most revered institutions and documents in human history including the Supreme Court, the presidency, the Secret Service, Wall Street, and the bible. Along the way he's uncovered countless clues, stories and theories he hasn't been able to fully scrutinize until now. In BRAD MELTZER'S DECODED SEASON TWO, he explores the hidden codes and symbols that surround us. Drawing from Brad's fascination with history, this captivating HISTORY series serves as a foundation to inform the past and reveal valuable stories about the future.BRAD MELTZER'S DECODED SEASON TWO includes all 13 episodes.Special Features:Additional FootageDISC 1: Ft. Knox / Declaration of Independence / Mount Rushmore / PattonDISC 2: Spear of Destiny / Billy The Kid / UFODISC 3: Da Vinci / 2012: The Beginning / Mafia: Alive?DISC 4: Vatican / Houdini: Murdered? / Devil s Graveyard, Alaska / Bonus Author Brad Meltzer and his crew take on another batch of mysteries, myths, alleged conspiracies, and long-hidden secrets in this second season (13 episodes, plus bonus material, on four discs) of the History Channel's Decoded. In the first season, Meltzer addressed a broad variety of subjects, from the prophesies of Nostradamus to the fates of John Wilkes Booth and airline hijacker D.B. Cooper, and this season's topics are equally wide-ranging. Did such historical figures as outlaw Billy the Kid, Gen. George Patton, Pope John Paul I (who was in office for just 33 days), and magician Harry Houdini all meet their deaths as the history books tell us, or were there other, perhaps more sinister causes? Is it possible that Fort Knox, the world's most famous bullion depository, actually contains no gold at all, or that Mt. Rushmore, that glorious symbol of American patriotism, is in fact a monument to white supremacy? And will Doomsday really be upon us on December 21, 2012, as has been foretold? These are interesting, provocative questions, and Meltzer dispatches his field team (professor Buddy Levy, engineer Christine McKinley, and lawyer Scott Rolle) to track down the answers. The problem is, they rarely do; much of what's presented here amounts to little more than overheated hunches, guesswork, and speculation, backed up by precious little in the way of evidence or facts. "What if [America's] superpower status is based on an empty room?" Meltzer asks in the Fort Knox segment, predicting that world economic chaos would be the result--but no one from the team actually gets inside to find out if it's empty or not. As for Mt. Rushmore, they do uncover indications that sculptor Gutzon Borglum was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, but there is no proof that he intended his work to signify anything racist or separatist; meanwhile, suggesting that Adolf Hitler possessed the "spear of destiny" (the lance used by a Roman soldier to pierce the side of Jesus Christ as he died on the cross) and had it ...
