This was a very fun show, even though 2 games were won (or 3 if you count Superball).

The games and prizes were great.
GREAT win in One Away.
The showcases were pretty nice.
There was a $6,000 winner on the wheel.
Contestant Tracy actually had a pretty good bid on the Corvette showcase, unlike other recaps where I see contestants MAJORLY underbidding Corvette or other luxury/sports car showcases.
From what I read in the archives, contestant Emma was a riot!

Unless he has the shows on tape, he can't - he didn't write these recaps.
