I have a been a big fan of Storage Wars for about as long as has it been on. I watched when it Dave, Barry, Darrell, Brandi and Jarrod.
Dave claimed he was fired by the show in 2012 after suing A&E (he accused production of staging units production with items). This apparently became a big hot mess with A&E suing back. You can Google it and read more for yourself, but I already have a headache this morning. The point is he comes back on August 12, 2104 on Storage Wars. No idea what happened with that lawsuit, but maybe payday is more important than his principal?
So what does that all have to do with Brandi and Jarrod? Well with Dave coming back to Storage Wars (for an episode or the season I don’t know) they are airing a lot of commercials. Since their will be a lot of viewers, immediately following the new episodes of Storage Wars is the new series premiere of Brandi and Jarrod: Married to the Job. This isn’t the first we have seen them. There was a special in April of Brandi and Jarrod: Married to the Job. I figured it was a test to see how a spin-off would do.
Barry went on to his own spin-off, Barry’d Treasure, on A&E. I really really wanted to like it, but I just don’t. His personality when playing off the rest of the group on Storage Wars is great, but on it’s own not so much. Plus he wasn’t buying storage units anymore. He went around to people to buy stuff. I don’t know. I made it through maybe one episode. I thought the show was cancelled until I was on the site and it said premiere was May 2014.
How did Brandi and Jarrod do? They did really well! Brandi and Jarrod can carry a show, because (for one) there are two people. They bounce off each other with their daily banter. They work together, have two kids, and are practically married (not legally). Favorite line from Storage Wars by Brandi, “We’re dating? Great I’ll tell the kids!”
I am setting my DVR to record this on A&E August 12, 2014 10 PM ET following Storage Wars 9PM and 9:30PM ET.
