I want a Dodge Challenger! Awesome styling! I think the contestant wanted one too.  :-)

I thought it was a good episode.  2 for the Price of 1 was set up for an easy win in the last game of the season.  I was way off in my guess for the Hawaii/Tahiti showcase--I would have been nearly $10,000 over.

More or Less must have thought it was still Season 35 or something...it was back in "How easy can we get and still have the contestant lose?" mode.

The first showcase could easily have been done as "Hot Spots."

Speaking of the Showcase, did it seem odd to anyone else that after showing a Porsche in #1 and having a huge buildup in #2, the final prize ended up being a freakin' Prius?

If you drive up to the Emmy's in your new Prius, they think you are the caterer, or Ed Begley....

No no no.... you'd need a Smart Car to be mistaken for Ed Begley. :mrgreen:

Another thing about today's show that strikes me.  I am really looking forward to LCD's in contestant's row, because the old displays, frankly, look pretty crappy and old in HD.

It would have made more sense if they had held this show until now for a Guiding Light showcase (72 years is amazingly impressive when you think about it)... but an Emmys showcase? Is something that happens every year really significant enough to hold a show for three months just to have a prize for it? I'm thinking no.

BEST CONTESTANT OF THE DAY: Ginger

Five Pricetags:  Nice win! :-)  I liked how the audience was chanting "21!  21!"
More Or Less:  To me, those rims were screaming less.

Good show today, IMHO.  Lookin' forward to Season 38.  Hope it's a good one.

If we have to lose gameplay time so that Drew can mumble./stunble every friggin prize in both showcases, then how about we NOT do that.  Time lost due to budgetary reasons (need for more advertising revenue) is one thing, but time lost for that seems ridiculous and stupid.

At least there wasn't a spectacle made of the set change to come, which is what I predicted would happen.

Right now, I want to weep a little. Is it because of joy that Price will be back? I don't know....

Five Price Tags: My first guess was $18,773. It's been a while, but the strong audience suggestion of $21,790 got me.

One Wrong Price: I wouldn't pay over $3000 for a video game package of new systems. Older systems might be another story.

Pick-a-Pair: Ah, this whole segment with Ginger made feel at hearth with Price. Can't wait to spend every week with this show again.

Showcase Showdown 1: I feel this episode just keeps getting better. Maybe it's because I haven't seen a fresh episode in weeks...

Squeeze Play: Kinda wanted to take out the 7 as well. I was right: I was a little rusty; I should've gotten the middle number [1] out instead.

More or Less: [Dang]. The many times I wanted to go to Price but couldn't because of school and Allison does this? Well!
Anyways, paying $3500 or more on tires with chrome wheels seems pimpin' to me. (I said less.)

One Bid 6: Shoot! Ever since April Came on Down, I really wanted her to make her way up and not get sent You-Know-Where. Well, she's there.

2 For the Price of 1: Unfortunately, I was making videos for YT; but I still had my ears open to see if the contestant who was not April win her prizes. I heard bells.

Showcases: Well, the Showcase were really great. I would not say this unless it really happened. With all of the things in Ginger's Showcase, I quickly blurted out 35000. Didn't think I'd win both.

For a moment, I thought Drew was about to make a hole in the wall, maybe he did, but I hunched why.

Isn't it funny the yellow podium, one that is hardest to see with the old podiums will be the easiest to see with the LCD screens?

Aren't we losing a lot of gameplay time due to what seems to be such long showcasess.  Weren't the showcases shorter before?  I beleive the second showcase today lasted three minutes.

Personally, I would much rather have more game time than these showcases that seem to go on forever with so much dialogue.  The emmy showcase was way too long!

Before this show aired, Mark (the final winner) from Sheboygan revealed nearly everything about his winnings to a local newspaper.  Isn't that a big no-no?

I don't think it is a no-no because I know vicki who broke the daytime winnings record I can't remember when it was, was from right here in machesney park in illinois and it was spoiled in our papers before it aired.
