Drew was once again surprisingly good.  I loved the way he handled 1 Wrong Price, and he was appropriately excited during Punch a Bunch.

Lucky $even was a rollercoaster of emotions...seeing the contestant almost bomb out on the fourth number after getting the second and third exactly right was painful.

The Showcase was actually pretty decent for once.

You know what bugs me most about the Showcase this season?  It's not the's that they've had trips in them every single day for four months.  Part of the beauty of the Showcase is supposed to be that you never know what might show up in it...but that can't be said anymore, and it kills a lot of the anticipation and even makes the trips less exciting.

Good to see one last Punchboard playing. And a nice haul to boot. Now Plinko is almost definitely tomorrow.

Tomorrow isn't the season finale...and besides, Plinko was played on Monday.

Models on Surfboards! In bikinis! In my book, nothing wrong with some innocent eye candy...

No, but then there's the REAL problem with today's presentation...

I personally found the surfboards modeling, as ridiculous as it may seem, was absolutely hilarious. I can't tell whether it was serious or joking in the fashion they used the green screens but I just laughed the entire time.

Toss aside what the ladies were doing in presenting the boards - that to me was pretty good improv. But the greenscreen treatment was absolutely pathetic. Because the greenscreen caused part of her surfboard to disappear in the main shot, Amber appeared to be riding air instead. We know she's a talented person - but defiance of gravity?

Greenscreen seems like a good idea on paper, but today's presentation once again brought out its shortcomings, and that's not good. Things shouldn't appear transparent when they're not supposed to be.

Anyone know what happened in Double Prices to warrant an edit between the prize copy and the podium reveal?

Cover:  Clarice made a fatal mistake on her second attempt.  She picked 3 for the fourth number, with 3 already lit up as the correct third number--a big no-no.  Doubling up on numbers doesn't occur unless they're the first two digits (such as $22,xxx).  Had she not taken that 3, she would've won.

1WP:  Easy.

One-Bid #3:  Shoot the green screen!  Yes, models on anything do make good TV, but the green screen just ruins the mood for me.

Grocery:  Five products with apples in them... very nice.  But not for trying to get between $20-$21.  The prices of those five items could've been about anything.

Punchy:  Yay for a normal picture on the $25,000 bill!  Good to see Joshua punch $5,000 right off the bat, but where the hell is that $25,000?!

L7:  Argh!  I thought Charles had that car in the bag after he nailed the first two numbers.  I had a feeling that Kathy would stick a 1 in one of those final two spots.

My showcase bids:
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".

Grocery Game:  Shoulda went with 3 shampoos instead of only one.
Punch A Bunch:  Not bad.  I think they should change the distribution of slips to the following:

4-Second Chance

Lucky Seven:  Those last 2 numbers were evil!

An okay show overall, IMHO.

Lucky 7 last is awesome, but these Lucky 7 setups we've seen most the year are just awful a-w-f-u-l and pretty much border on the unfair.

A 9-1-8 to end things? No, that was unwinnable. I'm surprised Charles nailed that 9 but it disgusted me to see that 1 pop up in the 4th hole.

**Yawn** Another trip offered in the Showcases. **Yawn** Wake me when it's over.

Cover: I actually went along with Clarice thinking 1 was the next-to-last digit and we both were duped.  :-(

OWP: So obvious.

IUFB #3: Those green screens need to get the hell out of here!!!!

Grocery: I know what the theme here is.....LEMONMELBERLIME!!!!! Am I smart or what?   :oldlol: :D :-D Arianne's quantities are sure limited. Too bad.

Double: Nice.

Punch: Nice $5K win to cap off the year!!!

Lucky 7: I had fears galore when Charles got to the fourth digit and guessed 6. When will the madness end?  :evil:

Showcases: I wonder why Showcase #2 beats the hell out of the "Ultimate Garage" showcase anytime of the week?  :-D

A 2.75-star show.
