Or to converse, since, y'know, that's actually a word. :P

Ya know, I have a tendency to make up words if they sound right. ;)

Recap is up now for the record.

There appears to be some sort of large formatting problem with the first two games.

Also, might I suggest making the squares black instead of the numbers in the second Double Cross grid, and maybe blacking out the ones that aren't selected instead of the ones that are?  The way it's done now, it's not immediately obvious that anything's different from the first grid.

Or take them from BigJon's blogTV show... ;)

Overall a meh show. Nothing to see here, move on. (Except for Double Cross, which was pretty sweet!)

I'm working on Double Cross. (Edit: Done)

The issues with the formatting should be fixed, and it seemed to be only an IE problem cause it looked just fine in Chrome, which is my primary browser.

For the record, this template won't be used after September 4, so unless Double Cross reappears, I seriously doubt we'll need to worry. ;)

I guess I'm just tired of TTM. Especially being used twice on the same taping day, it isn't so bad.

As for Dimich... he has no say on editing? Really?
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

Glad now that I decided to not watch this show.

Although glad to "see" Double Cross got won.

Oh, and Go Cougs! (Washington State)
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.

Here's my thoughts:

Pay the Rent (Tuition) Epic FAIL on Malcom's part of placing the grocery products
Coming or Going: There's No way the trip to Greece be over 9 thousand bucks!
Dice Game: Richards mess up again!
Double Cross: Excellent first win in it's second play!
Cliff Hangers: Just 5 bucks over of winning the prize package as I thought Spenser was in good range with 10 dollars to spare as I went with 45 on the coffee maker hoping that was the price.
That's Too Much!: Do I need to ask.... RETIRE THIS GAME!

Greece can be over $9K: location, location, location. Pardoning the fact that it had other options attached, it also was San Torini, which is not cheap.

All I have to say is thank goodness Double Cross was won.

Horrible show overall, IMHO.

Pay The Rent:  I like this game.  It SHOULD be tough for a $100k payoff.  He should have quit while he was ahead. No way in dodge would a water enhancer/additive cost more than $8.09.  Even in a corner store in the hood...lol

Coming or Going: Wow, it could have been worse.  She could have been an education major....lol.  I say that all in love and fun. :P
But seriously, if a trip to Greece is less than $9k, almost anyone can go. :lol:

Dice Game:  I know we have issues with Richards..however, he can not control what #'s a contestant rolls on the dice.  The show cant just "give this stuff away".   Contestants have to be able to think on their feet.  And once you add in the element of "luck and for some believers..karma", most games are a true crap shot...no pun intended in reference to Dice Game.  Not too mention that the contestant who played this game annoyed me from jump street with his arrogance.  I didn't feel sorry for him.

Double Cross: A nice win...I still dont quite understand this new game. 8-O

Cliff Hangers:  20-30-40 who do we appreciate?  And basic coffee makers on TPIR haven't been $55 since like 1984.... ;)

TTM:  I have no feeling either way about this loss.  Karma wasn't on her side.

Showcases: Spencer redeemed himself nicely with his Showcase Bid.

Well, at least Pay the Rent was close; he actually got the mailbox right for once, though it was probably purely out of some kind of reverse-deception with the pens being much more expensive than one would normally think. Just got two of the middle items mixed up...

And that's why this game is so hard to win; even if you can figure out the mailbox items, the middle is likely going to rely on sheer luck unless you pretty much know each price to the penny.

Anyways, it's nice to see what a Double Cross win looks like. Also, think music!
