Theoretically, the most I could see won is somewhere around $60,000 at this point, provided they won $25K on Plinko, won GR with around $25-$27K in prizes, another $1,000 for a nice IUFB, $11K on the Wheel, and a DSW with both showcases worth around $25K.

Some other notes/observations:

-In addition to being Tom Kennedy's appearance to plug Body Language, 5355D also featured the first pet adoption segment, with the dog appearing in the Lucky Seven car. Another episode on the last batch had a dog appearing several times throughout the episode.
-The episode before that one, 5354D was first episode where the orange/red lights replaced two-thirds of the white lights in the light border. Several episodes afterwards would have the opening titles in various colors, from green, orange, and pink in addition to the standard blue. That episode had some staff revisions on the credits, including the "for Goodson-Todman" being dropped from the Creative Consultant credit.
-5362D was the last playing of Penny Ante with the game's logo in its red-tinted scheme. Although listed as confirmed on Steve's site, 5415D did have the new white sign, and is infamously known as a playing where the price YES/NO indicators wouldn't work.
-The set change for Most Expensive had not yet occurred as of 5354D.
-5351D's playing of 3 Strikes did not have the + sign on the gameboard, however Bob did specifically mention the game as "3 Strikes Plus", indicating that the sign will be added very soon when played again for five digits.

I did note that when he said the new name, he glanced up at the gameboard as if he expected the "+" to be there...maybe someone forgot to put it up...

So how many episodes are we up to in the rotation now? Are we still going all the way back to microphone elbow or have they dropped some shows?

We should be up to 400 when the last batch from this wave drops probably on October 4th/5th. We're still doing all the way back to episode six of Season 11 when each batch runs out at this point.

I think today is the day that we enter March 1984 in this latest cycle.  I'd like to know if March 5, 1984, which was aired during the Big Bucks Bonanza marathon and got skipped in the last cycle, is scheduled for today?

Yes, 5231D indeed aired earlier today. The next new-to-Pluto episodes begin this Monday with 5372 (June 12, 1984) at 9 AM Eastern, and will continue until 10 AM Tuesday with 5422D (October 2, 1984). 6 PM Eastern on Monday should be the 13th Season Premiere.

That pegs 3 A.M. Monday for 5361D, the show with the horrible audio problems.  Hopefully, somebody remembers to check in and see whether they air it again.

It looks like 5322D (the episode with the all time winnings record broken) is airing at 8 AM ET on October 3. Does that seem correct? If so, that is exciting for those of us who missed some or all of it the first time around...

According to my spreadsheet data, the 8:00 a.m. ET time for the all-time winnings record is very much correct.

Yes, the episode is airing right now on Pluto!  Is it true this record only lasted a month or two?

I saw the May 9, 1984 episode this morning.  One of the prizes up for bids in Contestants' Row was a flokati rug.  The first contestant to bid on that, Rosa, bid $350.  Sounds like Rosa had been watching other game shows (possibly Press Your Luck and others) and remembered the price from those other game shows she had watched over a period of months before her appearance on Price.  No surprise that she got a perfect bid!

It *might* be 5AM.  I have a slightly different setup to get Pluto TV and as of 6PM the guide is updated to 4AM and scheduled 5354K at 3 and 5355K at 4.
They can be close at the top, too.

Pluto messed up on labelling a few episodes. They call 5354D "354D", 5361D is labelled as 5354D, 5362D is labelled as 5355D (but with a different Pluto episode number from the proper 5355D), and 5371D is labelled as 5361D.

TL;DR: 5361D, with its horrible audio, is due to air at 3AM tomorrow.

5344D is the first show with the new updated full credit roll after Barbara left the show to become a CBS executive, with it some new faces are added to the mix (including Lorri Lampell), Goodson-Todman no longer referenced in the credits (though still used for the audience nametags for now), and other staff members were reassigned to new job titles. This moves the change up by a week from 5354D.

And 9am is indeed when we're going to see the new batch, including what should be the first of many by Ted Slauson in the audience memorizing the prices of the prizes out and getting them exactly right. After that I don't think we'll get a new batch until maybe very late this year (if they choose to add Christmas 1984 to the mix with a Christmas type of marathon) or sometime early next year.
