Nick is going to have a field day on this: Drew messed up big time on Bonus Game. He pushed the CORRECT choices back into the game during play! See what happens when you don't play a pricing game for five months?! Heck he pushed ALL the choices back! Still, great that it finally got played!  This was the first day of my vacation week, and it was such a shock to see Bonus, I didn't even see if it came around the turntable! :biggrin:

That's Too Much = That's Too Evil!!!!

Pretty good line-up overall.

Solid lineup.

Bonus Game...wow.  He totally spaced it.  But I'll say this:  if sometime in the future we get word that Bonus Game was whacked (which I will be VERY disappointed if it does), look to today for why.  And we got Bonus coming around on the turntable!

Second place for the winning price on TTM?  Wow.

And the first showcase...a time saver?
They can be close at the top, too.

Opening: Drew came through the Big Doors without his glasses! For a moment, I thought he'd had surgery to correct his vision. Guess I was wrong, though.

Money Game: I would've picked 54 as the last two numbers as well.

Eazy az 1-2-3: As soon as I saw the computer's price, I knew she didn't have a chance.

Bonus Game: It's back! But what's up with Drew pushing the right choices back into the board instead of pulling them all the way to the left? That's confusing as hell!

SCSD1: Woo-hoo, Dig We Must is back as the outro music!

Pick-a-Number: I thought 8, and also lost.

Grand Game: The easiest $10,000 made right here!

That's Too Much!: When was the last time the second choice was the right one? I was thinking more like $20,000, not less than that.

SCSD2: That Bonus Spin was so heartbreakingly close...

Showcases: Britney, I hope you check out the Sounders on your trip to Seattle!

Not a bad show, but there were some things that I could certainly do without.

The glasses bit derailed the opening of the show a bit. Sort of sapped the energy and momentum of the opening. The audience was taken aback by it, it seemed; still doing the opening cheering and already confronted by this. How to react? They just sort of kept cheering, which I guess worked. Kinda.

Great to hear a long playing of the Eazy As 123 cue!

Neat shot as Bonus came round the 'Table. From the Joe Plinkos Do Notice file: after Drew completely botched Bonus Game, my mom came in and said "he messed it up, didn't he?" "Yeah, how'd you know?" "I realized at the end I had no idea which ones he won and which he lost."

That's Too Much should be retitled "I Was Told To Stop". :P  Totally a forced loss there. :evil:

The Cannes showcase ended abruptly. Cash shouldn't really serve as a third prize... I smelled $$$ on the second showcase. That Assorted Coffee Junk couldn't have been cheap. But in CSS...Uuugh, over by $170 on SC2.  :wsd:

Not really the best show today, but at least we didn't get wagnered today.

In the "Drew Lost His Glasses" routine, I thought for a moment Drew was loosely mirroring Barker where he had a small chat before OB#1.  Something that Bob used to do before he stopped it in 1992(?).

My comments now.
Opening: I laughed out loud when I saw Drew come out with no glasses on.
Money Game: Great playing by Catherine. Getting the first two numbers with her first choice helped her a lot.
Eazy as 123: I personally thought that Britney played this game very well. If only the audience hadn't talked her into switching the places of the second and third blocks. If the audience hadn't done that, Britney would have won. That audience owes her all three of the prizes from this game, whivh were the skateboard, the computer and the range.
Bonus Game: Nice job by Brian.
SCSD #1: At least Britney made up for her PG loss by advancing to the showcase with her 90 cent total.
Pick A Number: When 6, 7 and 8 are your choices in this game, then it becomes a complete toss up. Lillian did try her best, but she came up a wee bit short, unfortunately.
Grand Game: Nice playing by Mariah. But about her "You're only on Price is Right once" comment, that's not exactly true. She can be a contestant again in ten years, assuming the show's still on the air then.
That's Too Much: More like That's Too Evil. I was not expecting the second price on the scale to be the correct one. They most certainly did not want this game won today. Janet tried her best, though.
SCSD #2: Nice job by Lillian getting a dollar on the nose on the wheel. Unfortunately, I didn't get to see Janet's second spin or Mariah's first spin because somebody at the control panel on Omni2, the station that airs the show up here in Toronto, jumped the gun and went to a commercial in the middle of the segment. Fortunately, the station got the show back on before the segment had finished.
Showcases: Nice bidding by Britney and a close finish to boot.
Show grade: 7/10
Dr. Pepper: Not recommended for Skype chats

I'm not saying it was... but I sure don't recall Bob pushing ALL of them back in the same playing. Also, Bob corrected himself when he did on the few times he did.

Here's a bigger question...this particular way of playing made it extremely confusing for the viewer to watch.  And the crew had to know that.  Why didn't Kathy or Adam or Scott or Syd or Mike or Rich signal to Drew to fix it?

He nearly had all four SPs described together, too.  Just a really ugly play.

And I forgot from my original post about the open.  I really liked it...it did harken back to the days of Barker monologues.
They can be close at the top, too.

Hello everyone!  Long-time lurker, first-time poster.  I have a few thoughts about today's show . . .

Opening: How much time does Drew have to actually get ready for the show?  It seems like he's not really even paying attention to the show until like five seconds before the doors open.  However, I am glad he's still wearing glasses, and the banter with the audience before the first One Bid was a nice throwback.

I enjoyed today's line up for the most part.  I can live with Money Game first if we get to see Bonus Game, et. al. more often.  Speaking of Bonus Game, yikes.  I think today shoots down the theory that  they were holding off on some games so that Drew could learn to host them better.  At least we got to see it coming around on the turntable, and it doesn't look that bad in HD.  

That first showcase just flew by.  I wish there had been another prize at the end.  It just seems so skimpy when the showcase has only two "real" prizes and the trip is purchased through a travel agency, so the description is short already.  

I enjoyed the rest of the show for the most part.

I thought todays show was alright except during the play of Bonus Game. I am with the consensus here and I will say he totally botched it up.  I was like what the heck  8-O.

Also, if you ask me, I believe Rich was sucking up to Drew when he said, after Drew said he forgot his glasses, "you want me to run back and get them?"   Rich should know he would have to stay at the podium to describe the FIUFB.   

Besides the senseless loss of TTM and the screw up with BG, I'd say todays show was pretty good.  Still happy to see Rich calling a contestant before the 6th IUFB.

Maybe drew got a talking to after his bonus game performance or realized he messed it up..
when he knocked into the giant price tag later on and said "its been one of those days..." you could tell he was feeling like nothing was going right, but he kept a pretty good attitude about it.
You people make me sick.  Every last one of you.

-Lineup: Relatively strong with only one quickie. Maybe switch TTM/Money for shock value.
-Money: There you go. 10/10
-Eazy: Darn Peanut Gallery! It was just a little thing. 7/10
-Bonus: Wow, that contestant entrance led to a full turntable. Interesting that >35 was the bonus over >150. (See my grading on Drew for more.) 10/10
-SD1: 4/5
-Pa#: Another crapshoot. 8/10
-Grandy: Wow, that could have easily been lost on those batteries! 10/10
-TTHARD: I was hoping they learned they can NOT set it up that way. 3rd is the minimum and 8th is the maximum (or perhaps 9th), leave the rest alone. 8/10
-SD2: 5/5
-SC1: ...Rushed and that's it? 3.5/5
-SC2: Made good sense, contestant matched hyper, but recap. 4.5/5
-Results: Wow, Cannes was really high, which led to the car win! 9/10
-Drew: I am not going to take Bonus too seriously today. It's the first time it's been played in months. I am sure by next time it will be done correctly, otherwise it may become another problem. 8/10

PGs: 53/60
SDs: 9/10
SCs: 17/20
Drew: 8/10

87 --> B+

Maybe, just maybe, Rich was perhaps joking?
