A very strange show to be sure, as there were a couple of pieces that if you were a loyal fan made it interesting. Otherwise, it was pretty boring.
I would have won 1/2 Off. I don't know what the facination is with Box #4, but the money has been there more than any other box (18 compared to 14 for #14).
Flip Flop was a toss-up, as was That's Too Much. At least it wasn't the second spot?
I don't know what Heli was doing or thinking throughout Now... Or Then. Seemed like she jumped around randomly, and that spaghetti stuck out as a "then" from the beginning.
Russell couldn't properly move the slides in Line 'Em Up. He was pulling on parts that don't move, and he too looked lost.
Beth played Bonkers really well, but I'm surprised that nobody is really that upset about her winning the game. Her move was clearly after the buzzer and shouldn't have counted. The rules as I understood them stated that if you make changes and then the buzzer sounds, you have a chance to push the plunger and see if those changes were correct. Clearly the staff was under this impression as well, as there was a noticable delay after she pushed it the last time. It puts Drew in a rough position, since he would have had to said immediately after the buzzer "that change doesn't count". Since he didn't, the only possible outcome was to give her the win, but when the clock hit "0" the paddles were not in the correct position.
Recently when do they trips in the showcases using the screens, they have that same ballpit thing in front filled with what looks like tennis balls. It confuses me every time when the trip has nothing to do with tennis. Anybody know what they are going for with that design?
Heli looked at home on those motorcycles.
I too was surprised at the 25 year gap in Now or Then, anyone know what the longest back Then date was previous to this?
Longest I could find was 17 years.
And finally... CBS... Japan wasn't even mentioned in that cruise. Come on dudes, I don't think anyone would have complained to you if this aired on 4/11...
Better safe than sorry?
On that I thought it was kinda neat how the 4 corners were left at the end. Little different from the norm.
There have been designs and patterns set up for the last two years or so. I prefer the "randomly eliminated" look over some pattern, but to each his own.
I thought Fiji (which if the recap is correct was the prize played for in Notty) was in Japan.
Fiji is an island in the South Pacific, located roughly 4,500 miles from Japan.
I really like the photo booth - both the prize and Manuela's presentation of it in the Showcase.
Me too. I thought it was a prize that she had alot of fun with, but the pictures that she pulled out clearly were not taken at that time.
I'm not sure about X-14, but Creamette still exists.Both are
available new from Amazon, but people in the comments are complaining about being unable to find X-14 in stores anymore.
