If the people in that show, customers and owners of that pawn shop are any indication of what Detroit is actually like, then I am really glad I have never been there.
Difficult for me to watch that show. Get flashbacks from growing up in the Detroit area. Detroit is a state of mind. Was not easy growing up around there. Moved to Los Angeles and at least the weather was better. LA will look like Detroit after the next big earthquake. They wont have the funds to rebuild LA.
