Gotta say that Toyota Supra looked pretty sweet. I would have needed a whole lotta good luck to win it though; I didn’t even have an idea on the first number in the price.

Pass The Buck! One of my favorite games. And I see what was done to the product display podium after all of these years. Indeed I do remember the days when 3 pairs of products were used.

I know this isn't true, but it feels like every 3X playing on its new set has gone like this. Instantly down 0-2, can't get lucky at all on even getting on the board. The game is hard and is supposed to be hard, but the luck has been horrific in the game.

That said, 3X shouldn't have even shown up, it was quite soon after TP. So if they moved it up realizing corona might end the season early, I appreciate that much. It still should show up monthly....
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

Thouroughly enjoyable episode today, even if the pricing game results weren't exceptional. Nice job in Buck to bookend the pricing games with wins.

Not much you could do there in 3X. So tough to win, especially when the first digit isn't obvious.

LOL at Drew trying to turn the 9 upside down for the Peru trip.

Yay for $1,000 on the wheel by Gina/Drew!

Tough loss in 3X, although good on Wilma for playing it smart given such a tricky price

Has 3 Strikes ever been won when all five digit chips/balls are consecutive?

The last time someone won 3X with all consecutive digits was 11/12/2007 ( $52,134 )

Seeing 3X played today so soon after TP makes me wonder if the producers were told the season was wrapping up after these tapings and they’re gonna burn through the remaining budget. Maybe we’ll see some really good stuff in this last batch of new shows?

Why would CBS let the show spend the entire season's prize budget when the show was unable to give the network the number of episodes contracted for? (Force majeure, naturally, but it seems like the solution that's fair to both sides would be to set the final budget figure proportionally to how many episodes the show was able to produce before the shutdown.)

If they were itching to give that Three Strikes car away, they would have found a price that wasn't so dependent on blind luck.

Loved seeing 3 Strikes of course but given that the first # is no longer somewhat obvious, I think they should just give them the first #, as in Lucky Seven and Temptation, and then have only 4 numbers and 3 strikes in the bag.  Game would go a little faster and probably would not result in that many more winners but gives contestants a fighting chance!  Also, what happened to handsome Devin in Pick a Number?  He didn't really know where to stand and didn't know what to do with the '9'.  Is that his first time in that game?
