This was actually one of the more interesting Famicom-related show I have seen because it was specifically about the collectability of Famicom Carts.
They had an expert from one of the big retro game shops in Tokyo (I missed the first minute or two of the show so I didn`t catch which one he was from) and he explained a little bit about the Famicom collector`s market and what it was that made some games valuable. He divided them into a few simple categories to explain their value. The first were games from popular series like Rockman, Final Fantasy and Puyo Puyo:
And then there were games that were released late in the Famicom`s lifespan, meaning that there were only a few released like Gimmick and Recca:
And games that had appeal because they were unusual, like Spelunker or Takeshi no Chosenjo:
And games that were really limited edition ones, like the green Kinnikuman and Silver Hot Scramble Z:
They explained some of these in detail, like the fact that the Spelunker cart came in two versions, one with a red LED and one without. The one without the LED is worth more (there were a few of those Irem games released like that, I have seen Sqoon without the LED too):

It was really fun to watch the show anyway. When you are part of a hobby that is somewhat limited in size it is always really exciting when you see it mentioned in the mainstream media. Unfortunately this was just a one-off program and not a regular thing, at least as far as Famicom games are concerned. At the end they said in next week`s episode they would be doing the same thing only with baseball cards.
