Speaking of Hole in One, did anyone notice that the $500 flag wasn't there until after the grocery plugs?

Yes. The flag also blocked the motion of the windmill, so they probably re-taped the introduction to make the windmill look better.

I absolutely despised the Windmill.  Poor Mr. Goodson must be rolling in his grave.  This is not Beat the Clock.  Hey why not just blindfold the contestant and offer $1,000,000 in Hole in One?  Ridiculous.  Imagine if he got up to the line nearest to the hole, choked and missed due to the windmill?  How does that make the show look?  I know they have to make winning the big dough more difficult but when they come across as overtly trying to disadvantage the contestant, they are walking away from why 'Price' has been such a beloved show for 45 seasons.  #epicfail
First off, stop with the rolling in the grave stuff. It was old eight years ago when Mike took over. At least it made a little sense then.

Second, Hole in One is miniature golf. This fit perfectly with the theme of the game.

Third, was Mark Goodson rolling in his bed when he added all the games and rules to The Price is Right back in the early 70s? People seem to forget that Mark Goodson changed his hit product for a new age and that he changed it drastically. I also don't think Mark was rolling on the floor when he added that gaudy rainbow wheel with the experimental hour longs.

It's funny how easy we can throw around hyperbole when you're wearing horse-blinders to history.

No, it wasn't.  Get the hell over yourself.

I don't agree with everything JT said, either, but if you're going to argue with him -- a person who I can assure you knows more about The Price Is Right than you do -- have a little tact about it.

Oh, it wasn't? Well it is now.

I don't have to know anymore about the Price is Right than him to know that Mark Goodson was a businessman who constantly tinkered around with his own formats, adding and discarding elements as he saw fit. He was pretty damn good at it too. He's not going to roll around in his grave, let alone his bed, because they added a thematically proper element to one game out of 70-something for one playing.

Maybe I'd use a little tact if we'd avoid the kind of language that allows the negative stereotype of this website to persist. I have no problem with criticism. I have been an ardent supporter of people's right to criticize, but I think we could agree there's a limit. I hate the use of that phrase. It has almost no practical use, definitely not there.

Sorry if I came off as harsh in that post and the other in Friday's recap.

And I reiterate:  Based on what I know of him, I feel pretty safe saying that JT is in a much better position than you are to guess at what Mark Goodson would have thought of something.  The fact that you disagree doesn't give you free reign to be a jerk about it.

I agree that some people here need to calm the hell down about the way the show is being run now (and honestly, it's being run much better than it was five years ago), but there are also people whose assessments, for various reasons, I'm more likely to consider as logical even if I don't entirely agree with them.  JT definitely falls into the latter category.

I know I'm coming off as harsh here, but damn if you didn't hit a nerve.
