Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that while some mild language ("hell," mostly) is the strongest that this show's content gets, the dusty subject matter isn't likely to entice too many kids. Mike and Frank are crafty businessmen who use seemingly devious sales techniques to get the antiques at the lowest price so they can resell them for the maximum profit. While their tactics sometimes make them seem like they're taking advantage of people's naivete, the process does show how the economic market works as a whole and is a good intro to the exchange process.
