Correct me if I'm wrong, but for just the second time in the show's 48-year history, the season premiere ends with a :dsw: (with the first being the one from Season 35). Vickyann, who accomplished the feat 13 years ago, has some company now...  :-D

Gotta love DSWs. By the way, I did predict that there would be a DSW in the first week …

Also, love the fancy new “Double Showcase Winner” and “total” graphics.

Only because of episode shuffling. This was Thursday's episode.

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

So as prototypical, I am a moron who wrote 2018 and deleted the trip to Australia accidentally.

On the one hand, it was impressive editing to make it seem like this was all along the episode they planned to be the season opener--for example, having Drew say "our first showcase showdown of season 48 is coming up" after Bullseye meant that they probably had Drew read segments like that on every show that will air this week so they could rearrange this week's shows as they desired. On the other hand, I don't like that they did that. Will viewership go up because they had a DSW at the end of the first show of the season instead of the fourth? I doubt it. And it gave them a VERY lame way to start the season (seriously, Double Prices as the first game of the new season??) Now, as for the games...

Double Prices: Easy peasy. And winning a Tesla for knowing that Australia wouldn't cost only $8,000 seems too simple.  Still, I'm very happy for Serlo! What a haul.

Lucky 7: As soon as the second digit was revealed to be 1, it was obvious this was in hard mode. Cathy had no chance with her multiple picks of 5.

Bullseye: Another easy setup.

1/2 off: Ouch. Charmaine did a good job through the first two SPs, but the last one to choose was pretty obviously the tape measure. Of course, we don't know if that would've changed the result.

Gridlock!: Major ouch.

Swap Meet: Very nice win of over $10,000 worth of prizes. Rarely is the most expensive prize the right one to swap with.

Showcases: DSW!! Good thing Cathy changed her bid from $25,000 to $24,866. Hopefully we'll see more of those!

I guess for me, and this is a relatively minor gripe, but I wish they'd have given the ARP of the bonus prize (today, the Telsa automobile).

I agree it's not particularly important to most viewers, but to some TPiR geeks who pay attention, it's the little things that matter.

That said, in and of itself it was a decent way to start Season 48. Everyone seemed to play their games well and -- even though someone pointed out this episode aired out of order -- we got a Double Showcase Win, so a lot to be happy about.

I just hope that some day this week, we get Golden Road.

  • Double Prices is the BEST game.

The pros:

-Winning a Tesla in Double Prices (albeit an easy task)
-Great wins in Bullseye and Swap Meet
-Our first DSW of the season

The cons:

-Double Prices as a season opener (Go figure.)
-Painful losses in Lucky Seven and 1/2 Off
-That Gridlock wipeout

So, yeah, although the show started off on the wrong foot, it turned around well with the DSW at the end. I only wish we had something better than 3/6 for the day.

Not a fan of Double Prices as the lead off hitter to start a season (Personal bias here. I believe Any Number should be the first game played on the first show of every season) but when it was won I found myself excitedly anticipating what it would be. To have a Tesla won on a season premiere was a real treat and having such a thing revealed as a bonus prize after the win was cool and fun.

I would have lost 1/2 Off by picking box 1. I guessed when 1/2 Off showed up I guessed that they had put the money in box 1 in honor of the 1st show of the season.

I thought it was interesting how the DSW occurred because Cathy shaved her bid. For those who didn't see this show, Cathy had originally bid $25000 but shaved it $24866 at the last nanosecond thus changing her fate from a painful overbid to a DSW.

Having 1st show have both a Telsa and a DSW was totally awesome baby!

Welcome back, Price. :)
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

There's not a whole lot that bothers me about TPIR... but I really hate the whole "huge bonus prize for first pricing game win" thing and in particular the way the Tesla was given away today and how it was followed up by a miserable Lucky Seven set up and playing.   

It would have been so much more enjoyable to see that car being played for in its own pricing game - even with a generous set up to give it a good chance of being win - not tacked on as a bonus to what was the easiest set up of the dullest game that we'll see all season.

I get why the show is doing this - it allows them to boast on their promos that they are giving away these big prizes without the risk that the big prizes won't be won - but part of the thrill of game shows is seeing contestants face some sort of challenge and win, whether through skill or luck.   As it was, the Tesla did absolutely nothing for me.

I actually like it, because it's a throwback to what the Cullen era used to do. Have they done this before? I haven't watched a lot in recent years, so am kinda curious though I doubt they did. But I do like it as a throwback concept.

This show was awful. I get that the gimmicks drive ratings. But we do not need to give away random $42,000 Teslas willy-nilly while still making the regular car games hard (201xx? come on now) on the season premiere. We could just make the actual car games easier and focus on the contestants. Why is that not enough now?

When we're out of money again in May, I'm pointing to this episode. Although the DSW was a very nice bid-shave!
