GEORGE! Or perhaps more accurately, NOT STEVE! It was so
good to hear somebody who's got a clue how to announce, even if it wasn't either of the best ones.
Drew was much better than usual today. Even most of the things he did that bugged me bugged me because they were different,
not because they were bad.
Most Expen$ive wasn't supposed to be won, but I don't think it was supposed to be lost the way
it was lost.
I know these Thursday shows were aired out of order and probably planned accordingly, but it still bothers me when they play Double Prices two episodes in a row.
Speaking of Double Prices, it was quite a surprise to see it played for a trip at Door #2.
I'm almost at a loss for words over the trips that weren't actually trips in the second showcase. Not only is that hard to bid on, it's freaking cheap.
That's how trips were set up in Season 1 because the show didn't have any money to book airfare with!
I'm also baffled about why they would pretty much guarantee that a $50,000 showcase would be given away a week after a 3 Strikes win. There is no way they could afford those.
Baggy was its usual impossible self. I didn't think that anybody in his right mind would've thought toothpaste would be only $1.89...
I did...but then, I work in a drugstore.
A trip to Wisconsin... speaking of which, is it me or does new Wisconsin governor Scott Walker always look like he just... on second thought, I better not make obscene political jokes on this forum.
Odd Price connection: If I remember correctly, Scott Walker is also the name of the guy who wrote the lyrics to Splendido!.
