No I just saw a couple seconds of only the wheel (that's it) spinning.

The TALK Is Right / Re: What is a good lineup.

.. now that all of the prizes and props are brought in and out through doors at stage right, could the show do an all-turntable episode just for the sake of amusing themselves (and annoying the stagehands whose job it is to load and unload the turntable)?

Make Your Move (4:00)
Spelling Bee (5:30)
Push Over (3:30)
Clock Game (5:00)
Bullseye or Grocery Game (5:00)
Cover Up (5:00)

(28 minutes)

Most people on this board AREN'T normal viewers. Nothing wrong with that, unless they start thinking that the show is life or death.

I will also add that the heyday of the FPG (Seasons 33-35) was about the most fun you could have watching at home as a Loyal Friend and True of The Price Is Right and member of this message board.  Part of the genius was that Joe Plinkos were not going to see a crazy lineup on a Friday as anything notable (much less even be aware of how a lineup is put together and the intricacies it involves) but to those of us in the know, it was fun (and sometimes frustrating in a humorous way) to see what Roger would do to mess with us.  Roger knew how to cater to the most dedicated fans in a way that didn't come across as leaving most of the audience on the outside of something only a few people would "get".

Back to the topic at hand, what would be a good lineup?  The one that should have been for Barker's final show:

Five Price Tags
Clock Game
Grocery Game
Double Prices
Bonus Game
Any Number

Yes, I know it breaks the rules with two SP games, but you couldn't have done better than the six oldest active games in reverse order.  As I recall, it timed out perfectly under the official timings too.

It's a tough call for sure, as each of those we consider legends brought a special something to their shows, but for me, it would probably be Bob, Cullen, Wink, and Alex as the very best.

To me there is no equal to these four…two of them basically developed game show MC’ing for television, and all were so adept at multiple formats there is no comparison:

1) Bob Barker
2) Dennis James
3) Bill Cullen
4) Alex Trebek

I assume the clip is from an actual episode. Which episode? Are any of the contestant’s names visible?

The TALK Is Right / TPIR Showcase Showdown scene in a movie
« Last post by Disneyfreak on Yesterday at 06:03:31 PM »
Hi!!  Last week, we went to see a movie a true story called Ordinary Angels and in the movie shows on TV for a few seconds the big wheel spinning in the showcase showdown TPIR.  (Wikipedia page)

Great movie, some drinking in it.

EDITED by Steve to fix link.  (Actually not sure why it needed fixed -- it seems silly that the software likes the left parenthesis but not the right one.)

I apologize if the following is an issue, but I admired the work here from Mallory as it relates to lineups.  It's been a minute, but I thought this was pretty neat!
Thank you! :)

Anyway, onto the topic at hand, let's try this:

1: Make Your Move
2: Pathfinder
3: Race Game
4: Range Game
5: It's in the Bag
6: Lucky $even

Just games some of my favorites and games I like a fair bit and games that seem to fit. I think that works.
