The TALK Is Right / Next Refurbished Game
« Last post by Chris88 on Today at 07:58:02 AM »
Which is the next game you believe that they will refurbish or you think that needs a makeover?

Big thanks to Mark Tran on YouTube (courtesy of James Shea) for uploading the second, third, fourth, and sixth Specials from 1986 in glorious HQ with original commercials too. The third episode (8/28) is missing the first IUFB, the first game (Clock Game), and the first set of commercials, but everything else is complete. I sure wish someone would upload the first (8/14) and fifth (9/11) Specials in HQ.





One thing that surprises me about the games chosen for these six Specials is that they never played Golden Road or Three Strikes. It seems like those two games would have been a good choice for some luxury cars. It was on these Specials that two games (Any Number and Lucky Seven) received cosmetic facelifts to their set pieces/props that were very welcomed. "Hole in One" became "Hole in One or Two" which carried over to the daytime show (October 10, 1986) although the set piece/prop wasn't updated until later - the sign in October 1987, the set piece that held the six products by September 14, 1988. The bonus for getting all six products in order from least expensive to most expensive (and putting from the line closest to the hole) was $1,000, but it remained $500 on the daytime show. Clock Game offered a cash bonus if both prizes were won. Four envelopes were presented consisting of either $1000, $2000, $3000, or $5000. The contestant received the amount contained within the envelope they chose. Also, I loved the set decoration for these six Specials, most especially the multi colored spotlights around the door frames. Those looked so awesome.

Here's the rundown of the games played on all six of these Specials. The number in parentheses is the number of times the game was played on these six Specials.

I'll say that the legal method we've been doing is waiting for the episode to come out on CBS.com, and then inspecting the image filename to get the production number.

We've recently discovered that TPIR puts all their episodes into YouTube's Content ID system, so if we upload a snipet of the episode, as long as it isn't too generic (like the intro), the warning YouTube gives has the production number.

Why was 9685K aired instead of 9681K ? I thought 9681K was the episode that aired today. I hope CBS can update the Airdates for the upcoming episodes.

Where are you getting airdates? Of the two schedules I have, one is from Season 49, and the other stops at 12/31/2021.

As for why 9681K didn't air, I can think of three possibilities:
1. Today would have been Betty White's 100th birthday, and there could have been some sort of mention of this that implied that she was still alive, which she was when it was recorded
2. The Grammys were supposed to air on Monday 1/31 (moved from Sunday 1/30 when the NFL announced its schedule expansion; 1/30 was originally the "week off" before the Super Bowl, but then it became conference championship games day), but were postponed two weeks ago; assuming the episode planned for 1/31 has a Grammys showcase, they decided to move the 1/17 episode for some reason to 1/31
3. It had a trip to Tonga

That nonsense at the end of the game was not the best move, and quite a blunder as mentioned.  Know the rules, and be aware of the clock at the end of the game.  People can ignore the criticism of clock management all they want, but unless they address it in private, these things will continue to occur.

IMO, and as mentioned, had they had enough time for the play, there was no guarantee Dallas was going to win the game.  That nonsense would have been better suited to set up a FG attempt.

Say what you will about Tony Romo, but IIRC, he made mention of the Cowboys maybe going deep in advance.  Barring a game-winning pick, they either take the lead or the ball is batted down, but with Dallas having a second shot at a "Hail Mary" attempt.  I agree there, but at the end of the day, throw to the endzone and go from there.  That, and/or don't commit defensive holding penalties with precious TOs if/when you get the ball back for one more shot.

Man, we probably are not talking about this if Nick Bosa doesn't go down.  Hope he's okay going forward

Exciting win in Lucky $even! Just made it. :-)

I would have lost Time Is Money. The fish food was over six dollars? “Starve fish!”

Gridlock! is just an “okay" game for me, but nice win regardless.

Notes galore on a fairly easy set of SCs, although some of you way overed the boat we've seen a bajillion times... (and the dirt quads aren't new either)

Loved Vanessa's story about her shirt. They were pretty generous with the last two numbers in Lucky $even being just 1 and 2 away from 5. I fully expected the last number to be 9.

Not the easiest Shopping Spree, the refrigerator to me was the only definite item to pick.

Just a brutal Time is Money, and Switch? was a total toss-up.

Wow the second Showcase was cheap.
