Is this the first time in the history of the show that Now or Then was played without its sign on the turntable?

Range Game: Another loss for stopping the rangefinder a little too soon.

Now...or Then: It doesn't get any better than this!

Money Game: Another tricky setup...and I wouldn't have gotten the back, either.

Bonkers: Wow, the first digit was marked Lower every time. How could you get all those chance and still lose???

Punch-a-Bunch: Another sucky payout, only $250.

Lucky $even: Evil setup again...

Showcases: Well, everything must come to an end, as we saw the first overbid in May this season. Nice that they showed the winner propose to his girlfriend and her acceptance before the fade to black. Hopefully, we'll see this on YouTube in the near future.

I bet Frank's a happy man today.  :-P

Finally, finally they played Lucky 7 last again!!  8-) First time we've seen L7 last since Roger's lineups.

Wow, yet another 1 win day--it feels like a neverending streak we're on with these 1 win days.

Whoa!!!! I wonder were the sign was for Now or Then today? NoT looked weird without its sign.

Now or Then looked a little odd without its sign.

That was an odd setup for Money Game, since Impalas can be very expensive.

Lucky Seven last was a nice treat.

The wedding proposal made a nice end to the week. :biggrin:

Ooh yes!  I don't think this group of six games could have been slotted any better than they were :)!  I mean, I guess you could reasonably argue that Punch a Bunch could've been second, and Now or Then fifth, but Punch a Bunch fifth and especially Now or Then second is just plain more interesting.

Oh, and Lucky $even sixth is always awesome, of course :)!

He's not the only one. :-D

I also wonder what happened to Now or Then's sign...I wonder if they're making modifications to the sign so that it "fits" better (as opposed to appearing as if its a half mile away from the actual game on the new Turntable walls), or if they just simply forgot to put the sign up.  Either way, it was kinda weird to not see it.

I guess having the season number in the top middle spot on the Money Game board is done away with...oh well.

Isn't it kinda ironic that the TV that was offered as a prize in Bonkers was showing a past playing of Bonkers? It was more than likely intentional, but it was still kinda funny nonetheless.

Yay! Lucky $even sixth!

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.

Normally, when a pricing game's sign is missing, I post that I "wonder" why it wasn't there...but today, I'm gonna make a guess instead.  The staff is probably going so crazy trying to deal with this new format for Acts 1 and 2 that the Now....or Then sign probably got lost in the shuffle.

Seeing Lucky $even sixth was cool.

The big prize in the second showcase was an outdoor movie projection screen?!

Incidentally, there hasn't been a single car in the Showcase all week.  (...well, I guess there was if you count the SmartCar from yesterday, but that thing's barely a car.)  That's pathetic.

Not only that, but did anyone notice that at the end of the clip, it showed that the winning combo for THAT playing was the SAME EXACT correct combo for TODAY's playing!?  I saw that.  It made me sick seeing that from wondering if the show knew what they were doing in playing that particular clip.  I mean, the clip showed Bonkers with the same correct combo as today's playing, after all the other possible combos? :oldlol: :police:  If I was the contestant, I noticed that right away.  That would be the first combo I try(LHHH)  There was an edit in Bonkers today, btw.

-Lineup: Not too bad.
-Rangey: She had the right idea...not quite high enough. 8/10
-NoT: Nice. 9/10
-Money: That was weird, 25/29. 7/10
-SD1: 4/5
-Bonkers: Good effort. 8/10
-Punchy: Just about how it usually goes. 8/10
-L7: If you don't have an idea on the thousands digit, you can just call it a loss. 7/10
-SD2: 4/5
-SC1: Cool dune buggies! 5/5
-SC2: Almost all furniture....hmm. 4/5
-Results: Wow, I knew he was over, but not that over. Cheapo buggies 7/10
-Drew: Too much on that 50 in Punchy. 8/10

Exact same denominations as yesterday for each section -

79 --> C+ - damn, this has been the worst week of the season.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

Am I the only one hoping Now or Then's sign is being redone? The beloved original one is tacky as hell (to me) nowadays with the new set.

I liked the line-up today also.

I think Drew should reveal where the $25,000 is hiding on the Punch Board at the end of the game. I would have punched Hole #4 on the bottom row. I just had a feeling there was big money there.  :mrgreen:

MY FAVORITE GAME OF THE DAY:
Punch-a-Bunch

MY FAVORITE CONTESTANT:
Casey, Bonkers!

PRICELESS MOMENT:

The staff has forgotten to put the sign up on the turntable before on pricing games; I'm thinking it was simply a human error.
