This episode was really a saved show. In fact, when I was reading the recap and noticed the five losses in a row, I immediately thought to myself an automatic win was going to happen, because then the game show gods would have been angry and called it a rigged skunking had Pick-A-Pair been a loss.

Are we noticing a trend here? Every time we expect a skunk, we instead get a saved show. It does not matter where the win occurs, the result of a 1-for-6 show is what I am not happy with. I'm not saying that we should have more skunked episodes or possibly another El Skunko. What I'm saying is, please do not make every single episode be a saved show, regardless of the Showcase results. I am much more comfortable with an episode having a 2-for-6.

The weird thing was that this episode was supposed to air 2 weeks ago by show number. Not like the episode that was for this day was any  better. :roll:

Building upon what ClassicG said: Seems like, more often than any other pricing game, Pick-A-Pair saves a given show from being skunked. Is it coincidence that a game with such a high winning percentage is often played last? It's almost as if Mike forces losses in pricing games 1-5, then makes the last game easy to win. If nothing else, it certainly makes for a more dramatic effect than losses in games 1-4, followed by a win, then another loss.  ;D
