Well, we can all blame Ellen for ruining a Perfect Show but despite that, this was a fun episode, fun games and certainly a lot of Cars featured on this show (3 of them were won) and the showcases were pretty nice too ! It was a little weird in the train depot at the beginning as the engine was coming across the stage, the wheels weren't even turning and Brandi literally looked frozen sitting in the seat of the train, she didn't even look at the camera and Claudia wasn't in costume.
Most segments from this episode can be found on the 2005 "TPiR" DVD game (w/ Todd Newton as the voice over Host) and it looked a little weird to me at first when I watched this episode because the segments from this show that are featured in the game, are all screen grabs.
This episode marks the first of several shows that Burton Richardson and his famous "9 uh-oh, 36" returns to fill Rod's shoes as announcer.
Fantastic Show, a LOT of fun to watch !
