Fans of reality TV often walk a strange tightrope, accepting in the back of their minds that the events being presented are somewhat staged, or even edited to appear more dramatic than they really are. That line isn't often called into question, but 'Storage Wars' star Dave Hester is fighting back against A&E for his recent dismissal, the cause of which was apparently complaints to the show's producers of “fraud on the public." Does his $3.75 million dollar lawsuit have a case?
If you've never seen A&E's hit show, 'Storage Wars,' you might have a difficult time understanding why so many would find it compelling. Take a look, however, and you'll find a show that hits a surprising amount of pure entertainment buttons and does so in half-hour chunks that fly by the edge of your brain like a dream you can barely remember but know you enjoyed. Let's face it: It's a well conceived show.
