Quick Take

Good Start to Big Money week.
Nice $100k win in 1/2 Off.
Interesting to note: Switch? played the Switcheroo Music during the Price Switching.

Pretty good show!!! Thought it was strange that the Switcheroo music was played during 'Switch?' I thought it was cool that Dice Game was played for not only a car but also up to $40,000!!!!! The $5,000 for a perfect bid is a nice touch!! What about the 'Big Wheel' for a chance for $45,000 during the bonus spin?

I like that the new bonus opportunities for Big Money Week allow more than one contestant to win big money. They are too gimmicky, but at least it gives more contestants a chance even if just one gets to play for $100,000 or more.

I can't remember the last time the SPs were that easy in 1/2 Off. They definitely wanted the contestant to have at least a 50/50 chance. Loved the reaction after the win!

Definitely wasn't expecting either Showcase to be as expensive as it was.

Stacey is written instead of Bullseye in the Quick Take.  FIXED.  -Steve

I didn't know Jaydlewis had a thing for generic white garage bands that obsess about mothers with teenage daughters.

Seems like someone on the show might have been listening to the commentary, since there were a few thoughts that it would be better if the extra money was not just concentrated in one game, and they did spread it out a bit with the other bonuses (Dice, perfect bid and the 45 on the wheel)?

That seems like a really reasonable explanation.

It seems to me that they wanted to give away as much stuff as possible today.  Every game was set up for a win, or at least set up as much as it could be, with the possible exception of Any Number.  I particularly can't believe that Side by Side was lost.

I'm not crazy about the...well...switching of the music in Switch?.  I hope that was just an experiment, or even someone loading the wrong cue.

Eh, -94 looks a bit more attractive in Side, IMO. I could see how that was lost. Also I'd say that Any was pretty favorable with both 3 & 2 likely to be guessed for the 2nd digit early on.

Absolutely hate a normal black space being more valuable in the bonus spin. Hate hate hate. Just make a double dollar worth 45k. Trying too hard and making everything dumb as a result.

There's a 48% chance of getting no right numbers in Dice ((5/6)^4). Dumb, dumb idea and it completely backfired on-air, but I am glad for the budget we saved a bit there.

It must have been a wrong cue in Switch, right? Switch?, Switcheroo. Someone pressed a wrong button.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

I think $5,000 for a wad in Contestants' Row ranks as a little egregious.
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
