節目介紹 Introduction

在小鎮和美國的鄉間道路上,有珍寶正等待著被發掘;有價值的歷史文物就隱藏在垃圾堆裡、埋在穀倉裡和堆在車庫裡。鑑定專家要找到這些遺失的文物,期盼它們能從廢物變成寶物。美國尋寶雙星是由經驗老道的「尋寶者」兼「古董考古學」老闆麥克沃爾夫,以及他的合夥人法蘭克弗里茨,一起搜尋被擁有者長久遺忘的物品;這些物品都具備歷史性、收藏性和流行文化價值。他們在一路上遇到一群有故事的人,讓大眾能看見美國的歷史與文化。
 
In small towns, and along America's back roads, treasures are waiting to be uncovered--valuable relics from history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages. It takes special experts to find these lost artifacts and hopefully turn rust to riches. AMERICAN PICKERS follows two of the most skilled "pickers" Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology, and his business partner, Frank Fritz, as they hunt down objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value that have been long forgotten by their owners. Along the way, they meet people whose own stories open a window into American lives and history.
