Let's see how our season finale went.

Spelling Bee: I t was very interesting to see Phillip pick # that correspond with his event.  It was also interesting to see Phillip go Bonkers when he won.

Pushover: I had a feeling that Sitesa pushed way too far. :-?

Switch: I would have swapped.

Checkout: Well played by Cyrus.  BTW, from our Golden Gallery, it was sometime back in 1990 where a lady nailed all five grogery products PERFECTLY.  

One Away: I knew Sean lost once he left the sencond 2 alone. :-?

Range Finder: I Would have stopped between $2700-$2800 and won barely.

Showcases: I would have went with $35,000 on the Ram, and suffered a painful overbid by $224.  $24,000 wasn't close.

Overall: Another fun show to wrap it up this wild season.

I'll be back next year!  Thanks, Joe!

Today's playing of Spelling Bee was the best I've seen in a long time.  Phillip was such a good contestant, and I liked how he came up with reasons as to why he chose the numbers he did.  It makes the random guessing of this game more fun.

I'm not entiretly convinced that Sitesa knew what she was doing in Push Over.  It seemed like she just went and pushed the blocks until she went as far as she could go.

Cyrus was pretty good in Check-Out.  He ended up with such a small difference by having priced the grocery products closely  and not just from off-guessing.

Speaking of Check-Out, this is the second day in a row that two Gold Bond products appeared in the same episode.  I still don't get how this happened.

Still speaking of Check-Out, Bob's reaction to Roger's disagreement over the smallest-difference win was priceless. :-)

And for the record, has there been a playing where the contestant won with a one cent difference?

Bart, I like how you've deciced to show the Range Game board before the prize reveal again, but please don't fade to the board.  I can't describe just how bad it looks.

Well, now that the season's over, I'm kicking into high gear with tape trading (so don't hold back on clicking the link below).  At least around here there'll be Pricing Game Reviews all summer. :-D
Roger Dobkowitz's Seven Commandments of The Price Is Right:
1. Tape and edit the show as if it were live.
2. Never tell the contestant what to do.
3. Size matters. (The bigger the prize, the better the prize and the bigger the reaction.)
4. All prizes are good.
5. Never do anything on the show that would embarrass a parent with a kid watching.
6. Never put on a prize that would make the show look cheap.
7. Itís the game, stupid! (Itís about the game.)

Big thanks to Joe_Capitano! Thanks for bringing the recap for those of us who cannot watch the show on a regular basis (I don't have cable, and I don't have good CH reception at home).

Kudos to you, and Kudos again.

Very good show to end the season.

Philip was a very good contestant. I liked the reasons he gave for picking each of the numbers. Congrats on winning the car!

Check-Out was played very well.

Once again, this has been a great season with lots of fun events, and more wacky lineups. Let's hope Season 35 is just as good. Also, thank you Joe for the recaps.

Spelling Bee: Philip was a GREAT contestant! He was responsible for one of the most fun playings of this game ever! I think we've got another Contestant of the Year nominee here, folks.

Pushover: Another contestant realizes that the price of the prize can be at the end of the line, and it backfires.

Switch?: Another game for two trips? Fairly easy.

Check-Out: Fantastic win! That guy was lying when he said he didn't shop! And I'm glad for once Roger kinda knew something about history that Bob didn't, but they still didn't know about the two perfect playings in the past.

One Away: Nobody would have thought there were two zeroes in a car's price.

Range Game: Tougher than usual. I didn't think the TV was that cheap.

Showcase: Cyrus knew his groceries, but not on everything else here.

Overall: Decent season finale. I wonder what Season 35 will have in store for us fans. See ya!

This was a good way to end the season.

Spelling Bee was very good today. His reason for picking the numbers he chose were amusing. I'm happy he won.

$8625 was my first choice for the sailer, but Sitesa didn't look sure about what to do.

Switch? was easy. Nice to see it played for two trips on the finale.

Cyrus did a great job with Check-Out today! And a difference of only 16Ę! Good for him!

I must say that One Away was tricky, but it could have been won. I don't blame Sean for thinking it was $22,000 because Ford Mustangs look more expensive than they actually are.

I said $3099 for Range Game today. Nice to see it revealed the right way today.

I just want to thank Joe for his great recaps of the shows all year long. We had a great year, and hopefully season 35 is better than that.

Gotta' disagree here.  I think it looks a lot better with the fade.  Maybe it's because I'm used to the fade for every other pricing game that's revealed before the prize, but regardless, I definitely think it's better with the fade to Range Game, then slowly zooming back, rather than the simple cut.

*sigh* The last episode of Season 34... I sure hope there are a bunch of G-R.net Live Shows between now and Season 35 to fill the void.

PG #1 - Bee first?!  When was the last time Bee was played first?  When they revealed the cheapo Cobalt, I thought Roger would play Shell Game!  Philip had the most interesting card-picking strategy ever in this game's history... and it worked perfectly.

PG #3 - Very easy.  No way in Hell a trip to Alaska is gonna be cheaper than Mexico.

PG #4 - WOW!  Somebody finally schooled the Dob in this game!  16 cents!  :-D  And I love that the Dob finally told Bob "no" when asked if 16 cents was the closest anybody had ever come in this game.  A one-penny difference might've happened before, but I doubt that it happened in 1977 or 1978.  The game didn't even premiere until 1982!

PG #5 - Once again, a contestant overprices a Mustang.  The lack of options made it obvious that this car would not be $22,000.

PG #6 - That fade-in shot of Range Game has to go.  And second of all, how was anybody supposed to win this game today?  The top of the range finder started at $2,750 and the price of that TV was only $49 above that!

My showcase bids - Truck:  $35,600.  Random room/snowmobile:  $16,700.
Well, this week was supposed to be a return to normalcy, but that's clearly not allowed.  Since you feel there is no need for this week's FPG to continue, I feel there is no need to continue as an FPG host or a G-R.net member.  Since most people are so desperate to push me out of here, why delay it?  I would have preferred that everybody publicly admitted it rather than string me along for the last two days, but it is what it is.  I am hereby resigning as FPG host and moderator, effective immediately.  whammy007 is the new permanent host.  No R-rated rant or airing of grievances from me.  Just a polite "goodbye for good".

Spelling Bee was last played first on January 4.  Looking at stats, it's been first surprisingly seldom this season, but then again, it's not been played much lately period.  Spelling Bee first isn't really that unusual, though.  Personally, I'm more curious why it's virtually never played in the second half of the show, yet Master Key and Switcheroo usually are.  I mean, those games are more worthy of first class... err, first half treatment .

Well, with Credit Card for instance, a fade to a close-up shot of the logo and then zooming out is acceptable, but fading to some random shot of the top of the Range Game board and then zooming out does not work with a fade.  The way the Range Game board should be revealed before the prize is a cut to when Bob and the contestant approach the board with it completly in the shot, as it was before Bart messed with it.

I just would like to say today's season finale was a whole lot of fun.

 8-)

Great Show. Great Season. Thank You Bob, Rich, "Dob", The beauties, the whole staff, Marc, and the G-R crew.

Happy Summer and God Bless!!

I've got to tell you... This was one of the best episodes.  A great lineup, fun and exciting contestants, and Bob was really great today.

Philip, I was rooting for you all the way.  Your excitement at just being at the show was obviously genuine. It was very exciting to see you win.  I was really hoping you'd make it into the showcase.

Cheeck Out:  It's really quite obvious that Bob really is impressed with anyone who wins this game, but he really made a big deal over Cyrus' 16Ę difference.  His reaction after asking Roger if that was the closest ever and being told no was priceless, and then to continue talking about it after the break...

Phil, you were a great contestant!  Very glad to see you win your game.

Check-Out was amazing.  I don't get to say this too often, but Cyrus played it very well.

I got a huge kick out of Roger actually disagreeing with Bob.

"Olivia Overkill."

Because of the cancelled tapings, something very interesting happened today -- something that I would venture to say has not held true since August of 1972:  for a brief period this afternoon, every episode of The Price Is Right in existence had been broadcast.

Actually, there are at least two shows where the contestant's totalled equalled the real total.

Showcases: Olivia Overkill? What's next--Jun Kazama?

Final Remarks: An OK episode--though I really think that TPiR naming a showcase character after Jun Kazama is WAY out of the question. Mind my great sense of humor--didn't mean to offend anyone.
