...Damn. wish I had more to say about today's ep then...

WHOO HOO!!! Double Prices!....

see? Nothing.

Okay. Somebody tell me why both Range Game and Double Prices were played today with Now or Then and no multiprize game. Not even a two prize game.

I just don't know WTF's going on with these games anymore.

Did anyone else notice that Claire was the person that Debbie knocked down on Tuesday's show?  I'm sorta' surprised that Drew didn't mention it.  Maybe he would have said something if she'd gotten up on stage?

I'm not sure, since three products didn't get revealed, but I may have easily lost Now or Then today.  Aside from the bleach, I wasn't sure where the other three nows and two thens were.

Seriously, it feels like they're not even trying to make the lineups fun.  Or even "kinda' boring, but decent."  Guess Plinko in the second half counts for something?  Really makes you appreciate Roger's knowledge of making good (or at least decent) lineups.

The worst lineup EVER!!  The multi-prizer is truly dead.  And someone please get Richards to realize that Money Game is A HORRIBLE way to open the show.  HORRIBLE.  AND VERY BORING.

Should Freeze Frame and Pushover both show up tomorrow, then every single true 1P (non-SP/GP) game in the lineup will have shown this week.  That's BADDDDDDD.

While I completely agree...isn't Money Game the easiest way to win a car?  And (sadly) we all know that a Happy Drew, which we get when a car is won, is better than Depressed Drew when it's start the show with a game that can be won for a car.

I didn't see the show...but the lineup would have knocked me out, anyway.  Plinko in the six hole would have at least added some pizazz to the group, though.
They can be close at the top, too.

Yet another SUCK lineup!!! Someone needs to get a C-L-U-E. Today was about as boring as boring gets. Where are the 4 prize games? What is with playing the car game 4th all the time?!?!? It's to the point now I NEVER wanna see a car game 4th again--the specialness of it has completely been wiped away.This sucks. I could put together a better lineup than this, in fact I know I have...
... consider my play along show lineup:
Master Key
Take Two
Side by Side
Magic #
Grocery Game
Money Game

Not the best lineup in the world but more imaginative and a 1000 times better than the garbage we've been getting lately. This sucks, we can't even get a sp or gp game last anymore and we sure can't get a true mp game anymore. They're killing the show with these sucky, awful lineups. BLAH.

They just need to step right back and let of us show 'em how its done!

I didn't see today's show yet, but did they change the font on the "Then" date for Now...or Then?  It's certainly something that we are finally in the 2000's for "THEN" prices.

Was it just me, or did Double Prices get a new paint job? It seemed a brighter shade of blue today.

The showcases were pretty good. Except, the money in the second showcase should have been shown before the trip was shown or during, not after. It just didn't look right. Also, Rachel basically had to tap Debra to show her what she was bidding on. Weird.

The lineup was pretty crummy today.

I could have done a better job with the lineup today than Adam:

Danger Price (instead of Range Game; only :30 more)
Money Game
Double Prices
Cover Up
Now...or Then

There. Plus, everything adds up to 27:30 (according to goldroadfanatic's timing list).

No. Same font, as far as I can tell, comparing with the image in our very own Golden Gallery.

I watch the show in spite of Drew and now the sucky line-up of games is bringing the show down.

Let's have better line-ups and more variety of games (I also ask, where are the 4-prize games?)

Did anybody else notice the "Marky Mark Day" reference in Now or Then?

I guess Drew has a good memory for his own writing.
Yeah...let's make this current shall we?

It seems to me that the games that are getting played every week are the ones that have the simplist explanations.   My theory is they have put the games that Drew likes the most into high rotation because they are easier for him to explain.  Games like Pick-A-Number, Money Game, One Right Price, or Lucky Seven are almost self explanatory.  Maybe when Drew stops fumbling through explanations for them they will reintroduce Credit Card, Triple Play, Stack The Deck, & Make Your Mark into the rotation. :-? just an idea...

I agree with you greg! Sometimes after seeing these games constantly, it reminds me of Drew's first month of tapings. Roger used between 30-40 at first and then gradually threw some in. And truthfully if Drew wants them to play the ones he knows better more often just because he can explain them easier, then how is he going to get them down if they aren't being played? The lineups weren't really all that bad once we were done with Roger's lineups but its like the person who does it suddenly forgot how to do it.  Adam my brother, you really, really, REALLY need to work on the lineups!

-SD1: Another .15 in spinoff! 5/5
-Cover: Really random there. 8/10
-Pl!nko: Finally, a win! 9/10
-DP: A bit random again. 9/10
-SD2: 4/5
-SC1: Pretty good! 4.5/5
-SC2: Cash should have gone somewhere else, otherwise fine. 4.5/5
-SC Results: NWA China probably got her. That mega-spa is over 20k, and he manages to get it. Nice. 9/10
-Drew: 8/10

PGs: 50/60
SDs: 9/10
SCs: 18/20
