Not too bad of a show today. Some definite "highs and lows" though.

Let 'Em Roll: I also would have been wrong about the peanut butter cups, and I would have stopped in her situation as well.

Do The Math: A win! (For both he and I).

Bonkers: Very good job explaining the game, Drew. And a win on the second try.

Any Number: So close. Such a disappointing loss.

Double Prices: Nice win.

1/2 Off: Down to a coin flip. Another disappointing loss (the contestant did so well with the pricing!).


And now, for better or worse, bring on Season 43! :)

Today's show was actually rather decent. I've been suffering from rerun blues so it was very refreshing to see a new episode today. While it was somewhat average, Do the Math had a nice big payout and it was nice to see that Bonkers was played properly and won rather quickly.

At least we had more wins with this special.

THE BAD NEWS:

A#: At least Wyatt has enough money to buy 2 McDoubles and a drink (Not enough for fries).

1/2 Off: Surprised that all the winning prizes were at the left. Shame that Deanna lost on that..........At least, she won her SC.

THE NOT-SO-BAD NEWS:

Let 'Em Roll: Never thought that a seldom-seen bailout would happen, not even on the first try. And normally, Reese's tend to be a tad steep. Mike must had a change of heart, I guess.

THE GOOD NEWS:

Do The Math: Easy setup and win, especially with those Elmira appliances.

Bonkers: Good job by Kayla!

Double Prices: Damitra had a nice win........Wasn't aware that the moped would be expensive.

THE BOTTOM LINE:

All-in-all, today was average, but at least it wasn't like past Back To School specials.........So that was good to know. Although, I was flabbergasted when Jacob bid $180 on a smartphone.

On well, on to Season 43 now. Start the countdown!

Road geek you need to correct the showcase differences. You have it showing that there was a tie.

Also has anyone else noticed that it seems like Do The Math is played every other episode?

Let em Roll: While it's ashamed that the Toyota Corolla wasn't won I think today's contestant did the smart thing in bailing at $3500. There's a very good chance rolling again would have led to less. I too was caught off guard by the cheap Reese's. I would have  2 rolls.

Do the Math: Clearly setup to be won. Some nice kitchen stuff won.

Bonkers: Well played by today's contestant and a nice Costa Rica trip won. That's how to play Bonkers people.

Any Number: Unfortunate that the Honda wasn't won. But at least the game gave some good suspense with it coming down to the last number.

Double Prices: I think this could have gone either way. Nice to see a win.

1/2 Off: This is why I don't like 1/2 Off. Today's contestant exhibited perfect pricing and didn't win. This is why 1/2 would be better with 4 sets of SPs. What a bummer of a way to end the 1 1st run show we get for awhile.
 
Showcases: Both showcases were good so as long as no overbid occurred we were fine. :)

Lineup: Average: Any Number and Do the Math are 2 of the best games on the show and Bonkers is pretty good. I don't care for luck based games and luck based games make terrible closers. Because 1/2 Off has such high letdown potential it is not a good closer. In today's lineup I'd have flip flopped the slotting and p played 1/2 Off 3rd and Bonkers 6th.

Overall: An average lineup and 3 wins but no car game wins make this show average.

The 42nd season flame is officially extinguished. Look forward to seeing season 43.
