I did...and was shocked. 29 was the same "back two" choice - AND in the same position.

I'd say that's creepy, but...

...creepy?

N/T:  No sign was weird.  Just out of curiosity, do they still make Cheracol D?  I haven't seen that product in years.

One-Bid #3:  Yay!  The train is back in the one-bids! :P

Money:  What an unusual assortment of numbers on the board today--17, four numbers in the 20s, and my beloved 99.  I knew I had a reason to be suspicious about 29 being on the board with 23, 24, and 25.  That was mean by Kathy.

Bonky:  That was also weird.  The TV showed a game of Bonkers... and they're playing Bonkers for the TV.  Also weird was the fact that both the Bonkers playing on TV and this Bonkers playing had the same correct solution--LHHH.

Punchy:  The LED belt buckle should've said Punch-a-Bunch instead of Plinko.

L7:  Yay!  Lucky $even last! :P

My showcase bids:
Buggies/trip--$18,007 (near :wsd: )
Room/outdoors--$24,007 ( :wsd: )
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 G-R.net 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".

Interesting observation: The LED belt buckle from Punchboard had "Plinko" scrolling across it repeatedly!

Well, there was still a stop down between Acts 1 and 2 prior to merging the two acts - it's not like anything has been added to cause the crew to rush.

What I'm getting at is there is no difference, practically speaking, between the the new merged Acts 1 & 2, and the old separated acts. It's still the same amount of studio time - it's just edited together differently.

I don't know the mechanics of it all, but we've been told by KenCrane that there was an air of "confusion" about the whole thing, so evidently, there's problems with this setup behind the scenes that, outside of this incident, we aren't seeing on the air.

It began in Season 35 and I believe it ended two or three playings ago.

I could have sworn I heard Dwight utter a very vulgar four letter word after losing Lucky $even.  He even put his hand up to his mouth afterward like he knew something slipped out that shouldn't have.  Anyone else catch this?

YES!!!!!  I absolutely heard this as well...I thought I might have been the only one.  I replayed on the DVR and that's definitely what he said.  "Fleeting Expletives" anyone?

Wow, really? I thought it was around much longer then that... I'm going to be 29 next month and I've been watching for as long as I can remember and I thought it was around since the 80's..huh. Well, bummer lol.

You do realize we're talking about the set up of the numbers, not the actual pricing game itself, right?

Six were won this week, including the $10K in Pl!nko!.

Too darn few, regardless.

So in other words, five games were won.

Five plus One Declared. Six. (I don't want this turning into hell over the Pl!nko! Caveat).

And, come to think of it, no games "one."

Who the hell cares if it was "five" or "six" games won this week. It's terrible that that few of games were won at all in one week. It's pathetic.

Absolutely.

In fact, if things go as badly as they did last week the season average may fall below 40% - and that's unheard of this late in the season.
