It’s rare for TV shows to reach a 10th season, but “American Pickers” has done so and gone beyond it. The show’s landmark season ended on Christmas Eve 2013 with an episode titled “Off the Road”. As the title implies, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz didn’t spend time running their trucks, nor checking out any new picking locations. Instead, they and Danielle Colby look back at some of their best finds to date and share some never-before-seen footage from their hunts — a premise that viewers didn’t love.
At the time of this writing, “Off the Road” scores 5.5 out of 10 IMDb, making it the most underrated entry in “American Pickers” to date. After all, it’s just a clip episode, so if you’ve been following the show for a while, there’s not much to enjoy. “Best of the 70’s” from Season 14 adopts the same format, and it’s runner-up to the underrated “Pickers” section. As far as episodes with brand new content go, “8th Grade Humor” from Season 4 is at the bottom of the table with just 6.2 out of 10.
With so many seasons and episodes as the name implies, it’s hard for “American Pickers” to avoid encountering an odd flop here and there. Thankfully, there’s a lot more out there to enjoy from the series than just ignore.
