I'm afraid to say it, but rob79 ended up being right - we ended up with a whimper of a month here overall.

-Lineup: Meh.
-Grandy: I knew that Gold Bond was low. Apparently a tough setup since everyone else in chat said conditioner. 8/10
-OA: This should have come down to only two choices, but the Peanut Gallery led her away from 22k. 7/10
-Freezy: Too many possibilities here to narrow it down, especially when he didn't know how much Spain was. 7/10
-SD1: This was...odd. 4/5
-Eazy: I didn't think that little stepper was so much. 9/10
-Squeezy: Easy. 9/10
-Bonus: Why did they put it behind the easiest SP? It was a big prize package and there were clearly some evil SPs. 9/10
-SD2: 4/5
-SC1: ...I'm not exactly thrilled by mansions, sorry. Maybe that's just me. 3/5
-SC2: Kinda liked the variety. Doughboy is a throwback to one point this season... 4.5/5
-Results: Blah-ish. Nice try on 2. 8.5/10
-Drew: French absolute fail! 5/10

PGs: 49/60
SDs: 8/10
SCs: 16/20
Drew: 5/10

78 --> C+

See everyone on 9/18.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

While it was nice to see Bonus Game, and there were some noticeably easier set-ups today, this didn't really feel like a season finale.

No showcase car, none of the "Big 3," nothing that really made it feel like a special show.

Aside from the stupidity of the "French accent" thing, Drew was pretty good.

Here's hoping for a much better season 38!

I find it ironic how the show tries to mix up the prizes and offer "cool" things like over-stuffed trips and impossible to price items to make the show less "predictable." Yet, the same things happen every single time a show airs.

Alright, Drew doing the funny accent before the 2nd IUFB price reveal was funny.  Tomato me if you want, but I laughed, especially at the last "EES!"

The show had its ups and downs.
- One Away: Drew accidentally pronounced the French word for 4 as "kwah-truh." And made some racist ugly jokes about berets and baguettes. Ewwwwww!
- Freeze: Yeah, I agree, too many possibilities. $5000 or $8000? How should we know?
- Eazy: I agree with the name of the game -- it was (waz?) very eazy. Bravo.
- Squeezy: Glad to see this played for a car again. I generally find games played for a hot tub / bedroom / whatever a little boring.
- Bonus: I liked Craig, who is the first contestant I've ever seen from outside of North America.
- SC1: Mansions... wouldn't it get a little bland after a while?
- SC2: This is the season finale, and still no car. Ouch. But Robert was a cool contestant and all, so I can't degrade this show too much.

Pattern: LLLWWW
Items Won: Eazy Az 1 2 3 prizes (stepper, etc.), 1 car, hot tub, barbecue, 3 mansion stays

We had some disappointing losses to start, but finishing up with some wins was very good to see. Those wins include the splendid wins in Squeeze Play and Bonus Game. Here's to an exciting Season 38 in the fall.

Historically, the season finale has rarely contained a playing of one of the "Big Three" games.  However, it was certainly unfortunate to not end the season with a showcase car...

Hey, I thought it was funny, too.

They should have thrown this out in place of the 6/10 taping.

Bonus Game was screaming to be won.  No way you're going to get a rice cooker for less than $12.  This, I feel, was one of Drew's better hostings of the game.  They finally got the turntable reveal right--now if only Drew would describe the game before they reveal the bonus prize just like in the old days...    :cool:

I just want to say one thing and I think I'm in the minority here. I loved the French part during IUFB 2. It certainly made me laugh and made that part of the show enjoyable. I don't like the game selection however. The same old pricing games we've seen for a long time. Eazy, Freeze, and Squeeze don't make the show that great. Showcases also don't have a car. Not the best show to have. See you at the end of the summer.

Hey, only positive things ahead for Season 38. I know that Season 37 was, well, mixed ... but at least Drew goes out on the up-and-up as far as his second full season as host is concerned.

I also liked the French accent today. What made it funnier was the fact that the winning contestant just came back from France.

Just so everyone knows, and I am sure many heard it in chat, that the june 10th taping, which is the actual season finale, won't air until september 18th.
