Very disappointing Golden Road playing, the TV should've been won at the very least. The overhead shot of Drew and the contestant walking was pretty cool.

Push Over should've been won also, the $9,000+ choice was the only one that was high enough. Very nice Time is Money win though, I thought she had it with her initial guess but she didn't need much more than that!

It really reads like they're afraid to play 3X again because it can be won by sheer luck despite how ugly the car price is. So let's do Golden Road with a tightened first prize that may trip someone up like today, and on top of it make the 2nd prize 50xx.

The show has settled into a decent enough groove for a couple years now, but the negligence of the Big 3 has been really deplorable.
S46... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

I think I'm going to add Time Is Money to my list of favorite games (which includes 10 Chances and Pass The Buck). One of the reasons I particularly like it is because the contestant can win an unusual amount of money, as occurred in this episode. $18,479! :)  As Ben Gleib might say, "Nicely done!"
