On Tuesday, 11 AM was 4643 and 12 PM was 4644, which means two episodes were skipped between 4602 and 4643.

Actually it was just one (4625).  You might be factoring in 4633, which was skipped outright within the regular cycle. 


As of 1 AM Eastern on 01/27/2021, they're airing 4673.  Currently, with the announcement of new episodes starting at 10 AM Eastern on 02/02/2021, I'm not sure what to expect from 3 AM to 10 AM next Tuesday.  I was able to figure out that if they continued skipping the episodes from Saturday's Marathon within the current cycle, they'll loop back to the beginning on Thursday at 11 PM.  From there if they aired their first 100-episode cycle without any skips that would result in 4791 airing at 2 AM on 02/02.

By 2 AM on 01/27 there are still 7 episodes left from Saturday's Marathon that might get skipped.  However, if they decide not to skip those, it will result in the first 100-episode cycle ending within the 9 AM hour on February 2nd, just in time for the next 30 to start at 10 AM EST.  Furthermore, if they end up airing episodes 4701, 4722, 4743, 4751, 4753, 4755, and 4781, then at 6 AM EST on Friday, we should loop back to 4581 one last time.

I don't know or think they air those seven, and if they don't, I guess there will be 7 hours to figure out before they get to the Drunken Models Episode

And about time they will finally release a batch of new episodes (even though it will be 30), that should take it barring no skips to 4851D (as well as fill in the gray shading of some of the episodes).
I'm curious as to how accurate the non-gray shaded line-ups matched up to the actual episode airings on Pluto TV. Were there any errors or were all line-ups we had correct with what was posted on the calendar?

It looks like Pluto aired a couple of gray shaded line-ups, and I think one of them were a match, while the other one had 5 out of 6 out of place.  As for the non-gray shaded line-ups, whatever was listed on Scorpz page was correct

There seems to be this idea that the gray-shaded lineups have a reasonable chance of being right.  There's no reason at all to think that -- I literally just took the games for those episodes and listed them in a plausible order.

As I recall, we got two lineups corrected, and both of them were way off. One was pretty early on in the rotation, and I forget when the other one came in.
I thought of a way to improve 2 for the Price of 1, but then I realized that I reinvented Line 'Em Up.

2/1 at 11 AM was 4742 and 12 PM was 4743. Since there are two skipped episodes between then and 4791, it's lined up perfectly for new episodes to start right after the next airing of 4791.

Did pool tables serve a different function in the 1980s? It seems like every time one is a prize, the plan for modeling it consists entirely of Dian sitting on the table.

Just saw a car win on Switcheroo on one of the "new" episodes. Did they always use the clangs in this game? I don't believe I've seen any other wins in this game on Pluto.

The way Bob is handling the malfunctioning Temptation scoreboard on this episode like nothing at all is wrong just reminds me of how Bob was so great at what he did...

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.

I haven't seen very many of the new batch of episodes yet, but Bob has been a bit cringeworthy a couple of times.  Once, in conversation with the audience, referring to "this overweight woman over here" and he was quite obviously angry with a player who didn't understand Blank Check.  (It did take a long time to play).

That being said, I still love watching these old episodes.  I continue to be impressed with the number of jukeboxes, player pianos, and organs that show up as prizes.  And dry sink stereos (a thing I had never heard of).

There have been a lot of controversial moments.  Speaking of Blank Check, the comment made about "showing the women how to play the game" upon the first guy to play it probably doesn't get said today.

Love the old episodes overall & have no plans to stop while their on.  Most of the stuff isn't too bad as the times as I don't think it Bob meant to be negative.  Doesn't make it right, but different times.

As for the jukeboxes and other prizes, those are underrated.  IMO; I have a car.  Several people do.  Not everyone has a jukebox; others might need a new refrigerator or ceiling fan light

Oh wow. Never seen the New Card Game premiere until now. What a trip. From Holly kicking Bob's mic out of his hands to the contestant using the ace under the new rules to end up overbidding by $9....its quite something VERY memorable.

I have to wonder if the large number of pianos and other impractical prizes was being done as a budget saving effort, knowing that the majority of contestants would decline these prizes, so you save the budget without negatively impacting the show by having to setup games to lose.

I always wonder how many people are going to use those personal airplane prizes.

If I'm not mistaken all the marathon-related skips took place between Wednesday, January 20th, 2 PM ET and Wednesday, January 27th, 2 AM ET. So it looks like they skipped any marathon episodes that fell within 72 hours before the marathon started and 72 hours after it ended. There are episodes that could have been skipped on both those Wednesdays but weren't, so the 72-hour range seems correct because that means the "skip range" started at 6 AM on the first Wednesday and ended at 6 AM on the second Wednesday.
