So this leaves 24 pricing games from last season yet to be featured.

Rachel sneaking by in the background on the scooter while Drew was revealing the ARP of the last IUFB was pretty funny, as were the random potatoes on Arzie's showcase podium. Unfortunately, they were the only redeeming things about this show. Just a lot of badly played games today (including a rare Bullseye loss), and the lineup was garbage as well. (couldn't they at least have played a longer car game instead of TTM, or Check Game instead of Flip Flop? And Punch-a-Bunch shouldn't be showing up on 1 week, either.)

I laughed out loud at Rachel scooting behind Drew. It was just so random and hilarious, and the fact that he was seemingly oblivious made it that much funnier.

So now #TwoPotatoes is a thing. (I could do without the hashtag bait during the show, honestly. It seems so desperate.) The chant during the SCSD was hilarious. I did find it strange that the audience thought those potatoes were apparently $5 a piece.

And yes, talk about a lackluster lineup. Its one redeeming quality was Punch with all four punches won.

Today's show was a reminder of how enjoyable the show can be, even with poor game play, when it just remains true to itself with a live feel (Rachel's maneuver) and focus on the contestants (two potatoes!).

I wonder about the lineup.  Could they have intended to play Hot Seat again, but for some reason subbed Punch?

Yeah, Punch did seem to come back around awfully early. No idea if it was just the vagaries of scheduling or a last minute substitution, though I'm curious now.

Okay show otherwise, wasn't bad but felt like a routine, middle of the season show. Nothing really wrong with that.

So now #THotel Atlanteotatoes is a thing. (I could do without the hashtag bait during the show, honestly. It seems so desperate.)

They did it before with #TinyTown(?) and pretty much any other show has some sort of hashtag thing going on. Seems innocemt enough to me.

Also, why does the site think w-o-P = Hotel Atlante? (Eg. I promise you I wrote pow, backwards and got ... Hotel Atlante)

It's a derogatory term for an Italian.

(also, it was #TimeTown, not #TinyTown)

Several of us completely retooled the Golden Road censors, and I felt it best to leave in most of the racial epithets because you never know what hate speech trolls will sling. Sometimes we get humorous results.
CSS Champion - Season IX (Part II); G-R Recapper - Season 44 (Part I)

And if you win that trip, you travel to the end of the Golden Road, where we have the most expensive prize ever offered on Golden Road.net!!!! IT IS MORE THAN $481,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Wild cheering and applause) LOOK WHAT WE HAVE AT THE END OF THE GOLDEN ROAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YOUR OWN PRIVATE ISLAND OFF THE COAST OF TAHITI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You and your whole family will fly round trip coach from Los Angeles to Tahiti where you'll sign a deed to a 2-mile across, 2-mile wide island 25 miles off the coast of Tahiti. This island includes a beachouse and more! And if you win this island, you'll recieve A NEW CADILLAC XLR CONVERTIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Torgo has left the building. John and I never really cared for the way he presented himself.

Two potatoes sitting on the SC podium was a hilarious touch as well.
