I made a discord for us to discuss the episodes in real time if anyone wants to join

S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

It's interesting how the 91-92 shows, the most recent at the time, got more play than the others, airing twice. And if I recall viewing the Win TV shows often in those latter days after school, didn't they take on the pattern that was the case in the pre Win TV era?

Yes, I think Win TV used the 76-77 Monday, 79-80 Tuesday, 82-83 Wednesday, 86-87 Thursday, 91-92 Friday, 91-92 Saturday scheduling pattern, but it was wasted because of the Win TV thing. Also, anyone old enough who was watching GSN 20+ years ago will remember that the six months between October 1997 and April 1998 was known as "The Dark Period" because that's when GSN lost the rights to most of the Mark Goodson library. The only exceptions were TPIR (which still used the variety schedule) and the 1994-1995 syndicated, one hour episodes of Family Feud with Richard Dawson. When GSN got the rights to the other Goodson shows back in April 1998, I was very disappointed because (along with Feud 94-95 disappearing and TPIR being restricted to 1981-1983 episodes - with the exception of Win TV) they only aired certain editions of shows. They aired Family Feud with Richard Dawson (1976-1985), but not Ray Combs (1988-1994). They aired Card Sharks with Jim Perry (1978-1981), but not Bob Eubanks (1986-1989) or Bill Rafferty (1986-1987). The 1990-1991 ABC episodes of Match Game with Ross Shafer were also MIA. If memory serves me correctly, Combs Feud and Eubanks Card Sharks didn't return to GSN until 2001, with Rafferty Card Sharks and Shafer Match Game returning even later.

Also, in regards to GSN's TPIR variety schedule, I remember the reason they didn't show episodes on Sundays is because on Sunday afternoons they had a two or two and a half hour block of black and white shows they called "Sentimental Sunday". One of those shows was Bill Cullen's TPIR (1956-1965). They aired half hour CBS episodes (1972-1975) with Bob Barker on Monday-Friday during the early mornings.

The CBS Daytime Feud bowed on October 2, 1999 with that counterpart's premiere episode but only reran on Saturday nights. The original Blockbusters with the Solo Player vs. Family Pair format returned to the schedule when the Goodson game shows returned in April 1998 but Rafferty Blockbusters never saw the light of day again until April 2005(don't think it was ever featured as GOTW). The WinTV era also began a new chapter for GSN by becoming a new expansion basic cable channel for basic cable providers such as then-called MediaOne, the 2 things MediaOne basic cable viewers never got to see are the Color IGAS and Password Plus until the latter moved to weekdays following ABC Daytime Feud in the mornings and Inquizition in the afternoons.

You'd think that documentation from that cherry-picking would still exist somewhere, thus making the job easier to do now than it was then (like, a "master list" of fur/non-fur shows).
GSN has not given Buzzr anything from their library. All these transfers are recent. If something like this was made it would probably still be in the hands of GSN.

Hey, if anyone at any time wants to fill in some game lineups while they're watching this thing, be my guest.  Write up any notes you think should go in the FAQ, too -- set changes, non-car games for cars, pretty much anything.  God knows I love the show, but I obviously can't be watching this stream 24/7, and I'd still love to collect as much data as possible.

Now airing is #4591D (September 20, 1982), skipping #4585D. Perhaps Pluto is going in taping order?

The above is my opinion and mine alone.

Wow, they left in a Bob Barker Fun & Games promo I just noticed.....that's something GSN never did I don't believe. Pretty cool. Also left a plug before SCSD #1 here.

With regards to #4584D (September 16, 1982), on the 3 Strikes game I noticed that the painting of a flying baseball with the word "Price" on it has now been added to the base of the board, moving the change up from November 9.

Something I noticed when Secret "X" was played that I never noticed before: The "X" in the logo was black compared to everything else being red.

#4595D (September 24, 1982) is airing now, and I now feel confused at the order this channel is going in.

Notation for the FAQ: on #4595D, Super Ball!! is played for an (astonishingly boxy-looking) electric car.

Yep, agreed, so we have a Discord community Google Sheets tab for lineup purposes. We’ll get it out to you. :)

Damn....they had a product in the Hi-Lo game on the current 9-24-82 episode , that ran for $7.50! The next highest was just over a $1.00 by comparison. Can anyone think of any playings with that high a price relative to everything else in this era? That shocked me for that time period.

It was also shocking that in 1 Right Price, each of the prizes they offered in this playing were worth less than $1,000 in 1982, which was quite low by this time. You'd think they'd reserve that for Clock Game.

Or used them elsewhere, even one bids (of which I noticed a $1 bid in one earlier, wonder how common it was at this time, not sure it woulda been too much yet).

They're bouncing around back and forth  it seems, they're just now airing the 1st show of week 2 or (9-13-82) that I referenced them posting a clip of pre-launch. Interesting.
