I really don't have too many complaints about today's show. The only real negative things I have to say about today are both very minor, and they deal with the green screens during the second Showcase (I thought we were done with those), and the fact that we went 1/6 today.

But, otherwise, the lineup today was pretty good! game sixth! Secret X is always nice to see, and so was Stack the Deck...really, it was all good.

Something in SC2 was cheap...but, yay, :dsw: again!

OVERALL: 4.5/5.

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

Nothing too much to complain about.. Drew is doing a good job keeping the energy up despite the multiple losses in games. I thought it was funny when he gave shout outs at the wheel instead of karen, but i could see why people would not like it.

Really really good lineup today. These lineups the last several shows have shown quite a lot of improvement over what we have been getting the last several weeks. Keep 'em coming, Adam.

The Most Expensive loss today was ridiculous. The sofa might have been the most expensive if it had been from highbrow, but Broyhill? Forget about it.

One Away last?!? Yesssssssssssss. It's about time we saw a car game last--it seems like it has been months since we've seen one last. What better way to bring back the car game last (other than Lucky 7) than by playing One Away. Let's see this more often.

No, we're done with the green trip screens. They're still using the green screen columns for prize backdrops though... I don't really see the problem with that, as long as they don't put an image on there that makes you want to vomit.

Push Over:  Ester had it and she pushed one more number over - how heartbreaking! :cry:
Stack The Deck:  Another heartbreaking loss! :cry:
Most Expensive:  Karen did the reverse - oops!
Range Game:  Missed by only $12 - rats! :-(
Secret X:  Fate sure smiled upon Gisela! :-)
One Away:  Curses! :-(
Showcases:  Wow, another :dsw: - awesome! :-D  It sure is rare to have 2 dsw's in one week and to have 3 dsw's in 7 shows!

Pretty good show overall, IMHO.

Push Over: Before it appeared, even I had a feeling an actual Harley might be the big prize. In my opinion, Ester took too long to get the first numbers in place, relied too heavily on the audience, and blamed them for loss. I thought there was only two possibilities: 12157 and my guess of 15749.
I just love it when a contestant relies too heavily on the audience and blames them for their loss instead of relying on their gut instincts. [sarc]

One Bid 2: Destinee McKenzie?

Stack the Deck: I think if Benjamin got the second product right, he probably would've picked the third number. I think you just have to select the last three numbers and the rest would be a cinch.

One Bid 3: "It's 980." No, it's 1450.

Most Expensive: Missed it because of a phone call. I need to see what this range looks like...

Range Game: Oh, so close.

Secret "X": That clock looks nifty. I hardly see anybody winning with only one possibility.

One Away: Why was I expecting Lucky Seven here? Anyways, I had one of those weird feelings that 16749 would not be right. 18949 was not better.

Showcases: So the outcome was the same as Tuesday's: Overbid then a DSW. Unbelievable.

-Lineup: Car Game 6th = fantastic!! Stacky too! +2
-OB1: They made it a little too obvious what was coming.
-Pushy: It was really too bad she pushed just a little too much while she was looking at the crowd. They definitely had it right. Another slow player too? 7/10
-Stacky: Wow. All 3 GPs needed to be gotten to have a win w/o a crapshoot. I felt really bad for him. 8/10
-ME: Karen really made this segment great, even though it was a forced loss. But she should have at least picked the trainer. 7/10 +1
-SD1: Wow, she did get some cash! 5/5
-Rangey: A so-so setup right inbetween 1/2 and 2/3 up the scale. 8/10
-X: Set up to be won, thankfully. 9/10
-OA: Wow, that Cobalt was actually loaded. It's too bad she repeated otherwise she would have had a nice win. 8/10
-SD2: 4/5
-SC1: I love the Roadster. Things flowed pretty well here. 5/5
-SC2: Green screen pillars? You mean we didn't get rid of these yet? :( 4/5
-Results: Holy crap, what a bid!!! (Yeah, Italy isn't that much, or the sailboat for that matter. At least she got $1000) 11/10
-Drew: I think he took his assisted dollar a bit too far, otherwise on the ball again on the DSW - 8/10

PGs: 47/60
SDs: 9/10
SCs: 20/20
Drew: 8/10

84 + 3 = 87 --> B+

Tough setups (which mean 8 for a loss instead of 7, or 6 for bad gameplay), good contestants, a much better lineup, and the DSW made this a nice day to remember, so a 1/6 and B+... sure, why not? :)
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

-Opening: Benjamin... that's not a podium. Nor should you be aiming for the red one.  :lol:
-Whoa! A prize that directly relates to the OB? That's really cool how the prizes are starting to naturally click with one another outside of the showcases. One Right Price's playing a couple of days ago is another example of this, in a different aspect.
-Pushover had two legit prizes, but $21K wasn't one of 'em.
-Two plaid shirts in the row today. What a coinkydink. Somehow, I think the OB price-stalling is a bit overdone at times. Once the price became $1---, there was only an $18 spread for Benjamin to lose, in this case.
-Ahh! Thought 8 was the third number as well. I question his choice to take the last number somewhat... but I still feel bad for Ben. Too bad. Had he done the fourth and third numbers, I think the 6 would be a pretty good fit for the last number... but hey. Stack the Deck's tough like that.
-LOL KAREN!!!    :lol:
-Looked like a spiky pie in the oven for Most Expensive. The pricetags kinda make you feel stupid once you see the massive price spreads. It's that same situation as Stack the Deck, while I would've done one thing differently (the sofa?!), I still feel really bad, considering how Karen's one of the best contestants around. (and besides, I picked the home gym. D'oh!)
-SD 1: A bust on a dime? It *really* wasn't Benjamin's day. And why would you, Drew, EVER stand in front of a celebrating contestant? You're "aiding" the contestant, not "taking full credit" for it. My gosh.
My bet: That ticket plug's gonna vanish before we're through with this season. ^^
-OB 4: Another swing and a miss on a surfboard. Not as bad as the $9,000 incident several years back... but.
Now I've kinda changed my mind on the stall reveal... I don't think it really serves much purpose at all.
-Range: No green light? This is where I started smelling a skunk. Hard loss.
-OB 5: That's a REALLY bad place to use the stall reveal.
-Secret X: That's a cool alarm clock! (Probably even cooler by the demo it got) And I think that's totally a snipe shot... that $83 tempted me as well, but yet that one X was enough. And my skunk fears immediately retreat. :)
-OB 6: Another Chargers fan. Heh. And I think Cathy's friends were *really* excited to see her finally escape.  :lol:
-One Away: Nice pick for the 6th slot! I knew that there's no way the car could only be $16K, and the P/FP combo would kill the last digit- and I said that before I saw the fourth number. Oops, I think I need a seat in the sin bin for that.  8-)

Showcase Bids: (and my figuring)
SC1: 1500 + 5500 + 24670 = 31670  ($-4004)
SC2: 799 + 6500 + 9495 = 16794 ($-497)
Weird green screens... especially the camera zoom-in.


Good show. But I hope they stay off the drama reveals for the One-Bids, personally. :)

I usually don't remember the contestants unless I just hate them, but Karen was great!
I liked the games today, too...even though almost all were lost, the atmosphere was positive & fun.

Hey BigJon, looks like you got yourself about the cleanest soundbite for a $1.00 spin you're ever gonna get for your game today!

Solid show today -  Another DSW, and a car game sixth! And One Away at that! Awesome!

Minor correction here, Joe: Stack The Deck has actually appeared one other time since Boxing Day, on the 2/6/2009 episode. Still, it's not getting that much play so it was nice to see it show today.

Pushy:  Thanks a lot, audience.  <grumble>...

Stacky:  Benjamin had the right idea in taking the last two numbers for free, but he really needed that third free digit to win.  That second set of GPs was hard, so the game pretty much hinged on that.

ME:  Karen is a real delight.  Put her down as a nominee for Contestant of the Year.  It just sucks that she got caught with an evil setup in this game.  That was one sexed-up range.

SCSD #1:  The Wheel has been on fire all month!  I can't recall this many bonus spins and bonus wins occurring in a single month before.

One-Bid #4:  The $5,250 bid was not nearly as dumb as the two $9,000 bids we've seen in the past, but it's good to know that surfboards continue to produce some of the dumbest bids. :-D

Away:  Yay!  A car game sixth! :P

SC #2:  Shoot the green screen columns!  The cameraman obviously broke rule #1 of green screens:  Don't zoom in or zoom out!

My showcase bids:

Result:  Wow, a third stage DSW in the past two weeks!  I must say that if we're not in budget mode now, we're about to go into it.
Well, this week was supposed to be a return to normalcy, but that's clearly not allowed.  Since you feel there is no need for this week's FPG to continue, I feel there is no need to continue as an FPG host or a member.  Since most people are so desperate to push me out of here, why delay it?  I would have preferred that everybody publicly admitted it rather than string me along for the last two days, but it is what it is.  I am hereby resigning as FPG host and moderator, effective immediately.  whammy007 is the new permanent host.  No R-rated rant or airing of grievances from me.  Just a polite "goodbye for good".

I counted. If I counted correctly, we've hit $58,000 on the Big Wheel in February, including four $11,000 wins.

That's a hot wheel all right!

What were the stats like last season, it seemed like a record number of $1,000 wins(ever since the 70s)
