Pretty entertaining show today I thought. I really enjoyed how Drew both presented and played Bonus Game. Great job there, and nice win. (Classic turntable shot! Yay!  :-)  And for some reason, today I thought to myself, "That Bonus Game board is pretty tall.")

I also liked Henry's t-shirt. I'm old school myself, and he and Drew's interaction before Squeeze Play was fun to watch.

It's been a while since someone has gotten the first product placement wrong in Bag.

I'll say it (I think he earned it): Good job today Drew. He even got a joke in about the tooth at the show's end.

Well, that was an interesting show.

Bonus Game's expresso maker was there for scares. I believe contestants have pegged the cookie cutters at $40 before, so I won't call it a forced win, but it was definitely easy.

I thought for sure she was going to lose calling the 9 at the end in Any Number, thinking the cameras were $598. Glad to be wrong, of course, especially considering the rough season this game had before this.

Everything involving Henry and his errant tooth was great and helped make that Squeeze Play segment much more entertaining.

Boy, did Daisy have quite a day! First, she thinks luggage is $8,000, but then makes up for that gaff by being only $5 on the next IUFB. Then she wipes out on Bag (not entirely her fault, as that was harder than usual for a first item, though she still really stumbled her way through that game), but then her single-revolution spins net her $11,000 (good thing for her that that requires no pricing ability)... and then to cap it all off, she WSD's her showcase at the end. Insanity.

I don't know what to make of today's show, perhaps because I watched it as it aired and not as I taped it and grow less interested at looking at the tv for each commercial I see for Everest College (I hope I'm not the only Ontarian who feels that way) but there were surely some interesting tidbits more particularily towards the end-ish

Daisy bidding $8,000 on luggage reminded me of Gisela in season 37 who bid about $5,000+ on surfboards and ended up becoming the only winner of the show that day and won both showcases but Daisy wiped out in bag and did sort of the reverse of winning both showcases so I guess the only thing in common was their outrageous bidding. I'd love to know what she was thinking. On a completely different note I have to say as unorthodox as it may be and may have seemed I liked how Drew took her over to the grocery products and have a better look at them and poll the audience that way. Didn't help her anyway but I kinda liked it, made the show seem less rushed and hurried in my opinion.

Brandi had genuine excitement and it was even better to see her win the car on Any Number

I felt like Henry was gonna be a great contestant seeing his shirt as he came on down, who knew he would actually give us one of the silliest, greatest and most genuine moments on the show and perhaps this season in general.

This season seems to be ending off on a good note. We had four cars one in one pricing game in the beginning, this seasons biggest winner in about the middle, lets see if we can finish it off with a bang

Has anybody before Henry ever lost a tooth on the show?

One lady's false tooth fell out....though it wasn't aired. You can find it on Youtube.

Henry was awesome!  He was an incredibly good sport about something that would have ruined the day for most people.  He even elicited one of the few truly genuine reactions I've seen from Drew, who was starting to get a little exasperated with him at the Big Wheel when he kept trying to stick his tooth back in!

Has anyone ever misplaced every single item in It's in the Bag?

They have.  I distinctly remember one extremely bad playing early in Season 29 with an old woman who wasn't even close to having anything right.

Not during the pricing portions of the show itself, but during the credits.

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.
