I don't understand how come the heck this season's most recent showcases scarcely have a car.

But at least A car is won today.

And about Drew's French accent, not very practical, but big 10 points for style.

So what's the reasoning behind that?
I think someone mentioned the possibility of a "Goodbye Guiding Light" showcase.  Which, ya know, I'm all for.
They can be close at the top, too.

Drew did a good job with Easy as 123. Bonus Game was decent too once he remembered which game he was playing.

Yeah...once again, Drew did a good job.  I don't expect it to continue -- I've learned better than that over the course of this season -- but there's certainly no reason not to enjoy it while it lasts.  The various changes going on -- even the long list of games that are probably going to wind up retired -- would be a lot easier to tolerate if he could just host like this all the time.

I agree about Drew's hosting. But, we don't know that any of these games are going to be officially retired, except probably Bargain Bar. That said, while they may not officially retire them, it's smart to assume that at least some of these games will still just be ignored.

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.

The games at this point are most likely going to go away as I don't really see them pulling them out again. Some games got played once. They aren't retired, but I don't see them bring them out for Season 38. If they do, I will be happy.

With the exception of Bargain Bar, I thought that the other games we haven't seen are just on hiatus?  Which ones are we in real danger of losing?

I believe Three Strikes is one game that we're in real danger of losing. Triple Play might be getting canned too.

Um, we're in real danger of losing all of them.  Doesn't necessarily mean we will lose all of them, or even any of them, but the danger is definitely real.

Losing all of them?  Only way that could happen is if the show goes off the air.  Please tell me you're not suggesting THAT.

Grand: Count me in as another who went with the Aussie Hair Conditioner. Darn it!!  :-(

One Away: I went with $22864!!! The audience stuck their ugly suggestions out again.

Freeze: Too bad.

Easy: Very nice.

Squeeze: I had a hunch the 0 was the one that needed to go, too. Fred and I had it altogether. Great win.  :-)

Bonus: DiPirro strikes gold again!!!! The full reveal shot!!! LET'S HEAR IT!!!! (Crowd goes wild) :biggrin: :-) :-D :D  Kathy sure was on the nice side with that sweet setup. Great win.

Showcases: Even with stays in mansions, This FRAT showcase was still boring. Once again, our minds were bowled over when a little-a** waverunner was in place where there should've been a HUGE Motorboat in showcase #2. Way to go, Airheads!!  :-(

A 3-star show.

Well, The 18th of September will give us the TRUE season finale. I'm in no rush to wait!! Happy Summer, Y'all!!!

Nice to see Bonus Game again after awhile.

Too bad no more new TPIR for awhile. What shall I do with my 10 o'clock hour? ....The View (Oh no)

Grand Game:  I was thinking the mascara for the last one that was under $4.75 myself.
5-digit Squeeze Play:  All right, gave away a car today - nice! :-)
Bonus Game:  Nice to see this one again.  I thought Drew did a good job hosting this one.
Showcases:  How the heck are you supposed to haul those inflatables with a wave runner!?

Pretty good show today overall, IMHO.
