  1. I certainly understand how she feels I had heart surgery five days ago and I was determined to cook for my brown children and by the grace of God I did praying that it’s not the last one I will be seventy for January the tenth God bless your momma

  2. Love the show! Mike is from my home town, Joliet, IL. I’ll continue to watch no matter who is on with him, where they go or what they pick!!

  3. I loved American Pickers; Mike and Frank were good together. I think Mike got too big on himself causing his marriage to go south and his relationship with Frank to go south also. He tried to keep the show going with Danielle and Robbie replacing Frank. Thru it all I’ve come to decide Mike Wolfe probably isn’t the nice guy we thought he was. I lost interest in the show after watching it every week for years.

  4. I started watching when Frank and Mike had it all together; the show just isn’t the same since Frank left. I still watch every now and then, but for me it’s not as good as it used to be. Even Mike isn’t the same character as before. There’s just something amiss that’s made it different

  5. Well we all can say what we feel but being the boss is not always easy and sometimes we make mistakes! So Mike did not always make the best decision and others were hurt but life is like that so don’t be mad but be forgiving and realize we all are just human natured! Just my opinion!

  6. Watched since the beginning . 1) Mike has solid character and is nice person . You can’t watch 283 shows and not see that . 2) same with Frank . Hope his health is improving. It is not really our business what the details of their business relationship is or was at the beginning of show or now . The show is about the antiques . It’s about what Dani brings to it and how she has evolved and grown . Peace .
