First things first... if anyone was confused about Drew's "rugged" comment in L7...

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=566C0Y7b8hU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=566C0Y7b8hU</a>

...yes, they had to edit this out because of the other crap going on in the first half. Now this show did turn out pretty damn good - car sweep, pretty fair setups, didn't mind stuff surrounding Gwen at all and Kenny did SC1 nicely... but you had to get by Bag, which was a real trainwreck. Bad gameplay aside... seriously, a Mr. Eyecandy, really? Not even a mention of who he is at all. This is why guests infiltrating PGs really needs to die out, just have Florence present SC2 (properly introduced, that was weird how she just started right away) and get rid of Mr. Eyecandy, who didn't even know the Ford Escape on neutral does need to be braked. They are lucky Bag had its shortest playing or I bet major complaints would have come out of the editing on this one - even with the crash edited out, L7 timed out to about the average 10C playing.

Only other thing was X... I am glad it isn't predictably middle anymore. But boy, it's just one of those hold-em-up bars, there shouldn't have been any confusion there.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

A decent special show today with 4/6, 2 $1,000 wins on the wheel and a great L7 win. We could have done without Johannes, I think, the games and contestants are the real "eye candy" of TPIR in my opinion. Didn't mind Florence Henderson though.

IITB: NOT played well at all.

CoG: A toss-up, but at least the NYC trip was won.

L7: By far, the easiest playing of the season to date! Too bad Johannes' car wreck's relegated to YouTube...

SX: I don't quite understand how the first SP was missed instead of the second one.

OWP: I would've lost w/ the jewelry; I personally thought it was cheaper.

MG: A fair setup, but it was won backwards anyway!

SCSDs: HOW ABOUT THIS- BOTH OF TODAY'S CAR-WINNING TEAMS WON $1K!!!

Showcases: When The Grosses made their bid on the Michael Kors shoes for a year/Lexus convertible Showcase, I KNEW THEY WERE GOING TO BE THE SECOND-BIGGEST WINNERS THIS WEEK!!!!! IMHO, this was the best week of "Price" this season, but this definitely wasn't my week for predicting where a previously won PG car would appear during the credits, as I got all three of my predictions wrong:

Monday: Sonata behind Door #3 w/ The Big Wheel in the background (Actual location: Door #2 w/ the BMW 128i; no TBW reappearance whatsoever)
Yesterday: Tacoma behind Door #2 w/ the Bayliner Bowrider (Actual location: Door #1)
Today: Escape behind Door #2 to replace the trip monitors (Actual location: Door #1)

I have NO confidence about next week's episodes, but as we've seen recently, anything can happen.

This show was actually a really good one, but probably not for the reasons they thought it was. It was nice to have the spirit of Mother's Day in the air, and who could think of a more perfect guest for this day than Flo, but they were overused, especially the dumb inclusion of "Mr. Eyecandy". And having a guest drive the L7 car probably isn't the greatest idea, as you saw. :) Still, this show was great because the mothers got their day and the setups were actually very fair. I wish they could be like this on every special show. Bag was still pretty hard, but it was really the only hard game of the day so that's fine. L7's easiness in particular came out of nowhere - was nice to see even that easy setup turn dramatic with a gutsy "8" on the 4th number.

You know, if you're going to bother to bring Bargain Game back, you should maybe not start off by giving it a 2 week break....

Mike really got burned in the SCs today by that willy on the trips. If the budget appears demolished in the future, we can definitely blame the three 22k+ cars all won on this show! Still, cool to see a couple get two cars the hard way!

I do like getting the models' families involved in the show when appropriate, like today. It leads to the feeling of TPIR being a big family that was lost in the later Barker days. And Kenny isn't all that bad at showcase announcing, either! I thought the showcases were both presented well today (although that 2nd SC really needed a third prize).

Timings:
It's In The Bag (6.5) - 5:57
Coming Or Going (3.5) - 3:22
Lucky $even (4.5) - 5:48
Secret X (4.5) - 4:11
One Wrong Price (3.5) - 3:23
Money Game (4.5) - 3:48
Total (27): 25:29

And now Drew's constant talking about how "rugged" the SUV is makes total sense.
Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

Nice dramatic win in Lucky $even today, and I always like it when someone, inadvertently or otherwise, gets the last two digits in Money Game correct first.  :-)

Today's show had alot of wins today. I hope it don't affect the budget mode for next week. And we coulda had a 5 for 6 show had Sharice and Ryan got both GP's right.
pepe! It took us all summer to clean out all the skunk stink from seasons 36, 37, 38, 39, and 40!!!

Well, this is a first: A holiday-themed show that's actually...........................good .

It's In The Bag: Did Laura and Nikki really think that a bag of Starbucks coffee was gonna cost $16.00? :roll: Best they got bumped by a dime on the big wheel from Emily and Virgil for that boneheaded move. Speaking of Emily and Virgil.................

Coming or Going: That was well-played!

Lucky Seven: Michelle and Emily finally picked 5 as the last number...........Hallelujah!!  :-D And not only that, they also won $1000 on the big wheel and a Lexus on their showcase!

Secret X: Seems a little mean to put the secret X on top, but that's just me. If Sharice and Ryan got that balance bar right, then they might had a chance.

OWP: I thought it was cute for Gwen to let her son model on the washer and dryer. Good thing Debbie and Bryan picked that for the win!

Money Game: Well, here's something that I thought was new: Patricia and Abby picked the back numbers (30) first and getting right............Then getting the front numbers (22) right, too! Unfortunately, they didn't win their SC, but they did got $1000 on the wheel.

When it comes to holiday shows, they tend to be nothing more than Mike's way to screw contestants over and makes it totally lame and boring at the same time.............Not today.

Despite 2 losses, today was pretty enjoyable and it was good that Florence Henderson (Carol Brady) was the guest today! However, ANOTHER male model??? Seriously, Mike? I'm willing to let the heavy rotation of Daniel Goddard slide, but Mike...............come on. Still, a great way to end the week!

There really something wrong with the show when the funniest moment of the day, and a potential all-timer, needs to be edited out. 

Love Gwen's son asking "how do they win?".  Sometimes we ask the same thing, kid.

Was anyone else totally disturbed by Florence modeling groceries during It's in the Bag?

It's In The Bag:  Not very well played.  I can't remember the last time someone got the second bag wrong.
Coming Or Going, One Wrong Price:  Nice wins! :-)
Lucky Seven:  What a great win! :biggrin:  I thought for sure Michelle & Emily were gonna lose when they said 5 for the last number because car prices don't end with a 5 too often anymore.
Secret X:  Evil IMO.
Money Game:  An unusual win, but a nice one! :-)

Good end to the week, IMHO.

Congrats to Gwendolyn, Kenny and Malloy on their soon-to-be addition to their family  :-D

In Money Game, was anybody else rooting for Patricia and Abby to pick 95 (for the extra money) before picking the 22?

I forgot that Sunday is Mother's Day.  No wonder my mother called me earlier this week, hinting about wanting a Baskin-Robbins ice cream cake.  But if she wants an ice cream cake from me, she'll have to wait until after my birthday.  I'm off to Ohio tomorrow morning and I'm not coming back to Kentucky until Thursday.

I know Starbucks is overpriced, but I knew it wasn't gonna be that overpriced.  I think Nikki and Lora may be the first contestants in a long time not to think that allergy relief was the most expensive product on the counter.

Were there enough cameos in this episode?  Florence, Kenny, Kenny and Gwennie's son, and this Johannes guy I've never heard of.  It's not as bad as Daniel Goddard or Jack Wagner, but too many cooks do spoil the broth.

I cannot believe that Lucky $even was actually winnable today.

I cannot believe that Double Prices has been absent for two consecutive weeks.

It doesn't happen very often, but that's certainly one way to win Money Game.

My showcase bids:
Tripcase--$22,107
Lexus--$40,107
Well, this week was supposed to be a return to normalcy, but that's clearly not allowed.  Since you feel there is no need for this week's FPG to continue, I feel there is no need to continue as an FPG host or a G-R.net member.  Since most people are so desperate to push me out of here, why delay it?  I would have preferred that everybody publicly admitted it rather than string me along for the last two days, but it is what it is.  I am hereby resigning as FPG host and moderator, effective immediately.  whammy007 is the new permanent host.  No R-rated rant or airing of grievances from me.  Just a polite "goodbye for good".
