Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that while the four main subjects in this auction-oriented reality show are verbally abusive, boastful, and interested in only one thing: money. Strong language is fully bleeped out, but kids will still know that cursing is happening at a steady rate. Aside from the colorful characters, the show holds little appeal for kids.

Sexual Content

Pornography is often found in the storage units, though no explicit images are shown onscreen.


There is no physical violence, but the four main characters are verbally aggressive and use language that could provoke violence.


Fully bleeped out language includes many instances of "f--k," "a--hole," and "s--t."

Social Behavior

Money is priveleged above all else in this show. There is little mention or analysis of why the storage unit owners could not pay for their units. Instead, the show focuses on the competition between the bidders and makes the auctions into a game, when the reality is likely much more sad.


Some brand names mentioned.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Main characters refer to their jobs as "addiction" and refer to "chasing that high."
