That's a good idea, but someone needs to talk to The Dob about playing Joker for a car. He just might love the idea!

(Oh, and I'm still adding Angela to my "Favorite Contestants" list behind the other three from Seasons 29, 31, and 32, in case you're wondering. Who would've thought that the second Showcase was cheap?!)

Or then again, he might not.

Check: Finally, A HISTORICAL TPIR MOMENT(is it really?), somebody who knew how to play check game and their claim to do such WAS TRUE! Too damn bad she shot into the jet stream with that 6886 total. What is the highest total in Check?

Pocket Change: Awful low envelopes picked today. I've asked about the envelope distribution(since we can't see it at home!) and nobody ever seems to answer this one. We know there are 50 cent, 75, 2 bucks, etc., but what are the other amounts in this game? She played really well, but got that damn zero which was probably the end right there.


BBB: I would have thought that Bar was more and lost. Nice win


Bullseye: WHOA, GOTTA GO WITH THE CROWD. Has this game ever been played for a car? And if so, how long ago? That 25k car and Bullseye would be something I'd expect on a MDS, or season premiere, or maybe even an Xmas week show, but not on a run of the mill show. And to put the cookies in this one, almost reminded me of the Pappy setup on Season 34 premiere. Wow, does the Dob have too many cars double parked on Fairfax or what? :D. Almost lost, and would have been a real laught if it was.

Roo: Didn't we just play for a car 5 minutes ago? Wow, even though she didn't get an exacta 5 on the first try, the second try with a 5 works just as well! Very nicely done!

Most expensive: Easy enough. I guess we are trying to get rid of all this loot before the close of the season?

Showcases: Ouch! I knew something was up when the crowd got quiet with Diane's bid reveal. I was going with the notion that we had our(9th?) latest DSW of Season 34. It is a real shot in the heart when they lose by so little, but over is OVER. Rules are the rules. Oh well.

8.5 show today, if it wouldn't have been for such losses in PC and Check.

The distribution is in the Pocket Change entry in the FAQ.

Actually, if she did pick the zero, it would have just made for a much more painful loss.  Actually, that would've made for a more interesting loss, though .

I had thought she did. My bad if not, all these playing during s. 34 are starting to jumble my mind. Hey, only 3 more shows to go and I can catch the ones I missed this season(quite a few from the schedule I've seen)

EDIT: Hey, at least the Dob did what you people asked. Remember, when we had 2 exacta wins back in 2005 with this game? Everyone griped it was too easy, well, it has been made tougher.

Post removed my MG.  

Dexter -- discussion about today's show belongs in the 6/22 recap thread, not in the 6/21 recap thread.  Please keep this in mind when making future posts.

Is this because of the "El Cheapo" Showcase (Diane M. overbidding by nearly $200)? Just curious...

Wasn't GoldenBulldog the one who loved seeing tricky setups that made the contestants lose? Or did I screw up the joke?

My wife and I are playing catch-up with our TPIR viewing this week, and we just watched this episode. We both had the same reactions to these two happenings:

1. Diane in Bullseye. We both felt she didn't deserve to win, and won with blind luck.

2. Switcheroo deserved to be won because she thought about what she was doing, she was deliberate, and she had the good sense to know that ugly pitcher couldn't be anything but $22.

The only things I remember about Bulldog are that he rigged his Play Along show and that he created a daily award for...well, this.  (The link goes to Frank's post, 'cause Bulldog edited the original.)
