Out In Left Field / Re: Going to see The Price is Right LIVE!

Your mother is still alive because when I'm typing this, it is Thursday February 21st, 2019. So how can your mother be dead in April 2019 when that month has not even arrived yet.

I wonder if it was a typo and they meant to say April 2018.

I am getting more excited for Friday to be here!!!   :P :P :P  I cannot wait!  I even went ahead and am having T shirts made with the shows logo on the front with the words "PICK ME!" on it, for me and my cousin who is attending the show with me.  This is going to be somewhat bittersweet too, as I had wanted to attend with my mother for the past few years, but her health hadn't been the greatest, and sadly, she passed away almost a year ago, she passed in April 2019  :-( .  So, my being able to attend the show, I feel she will be with me in my heart.

1.Pick a Number: I've said it before and said it again.  Watching a test pattern is more entertaining than this game and its poor win-loss ratio is another reason this game belongs in the dumpsters behind Television City. 
2.On the Spot:  A forgotten pricing game nightmare from 2002-2003ish.  Was more confusing than Double Digits or Balance Game '84 and more difficult than Bullseye '72.  I never saw it won once.
3.Finish Line:  Was pretty much a horse-racing themed copy of Give or Keep.
4.Professor Price:  Are we playing a pricing game or a round of It's Academic here? Winning the car depended on a contestant's ability to answer general knowledge questions such as "How many eggs there are in a gross?"
5.Bullseye '72:  The first pricing game retired and for good reason.  Even a contestant who owned a car dealership that specialized in Chevrolet Vegas would've lost this game.

So, if you've ever wanted to know what I look like or my real first name, just watch for the big guy sitting next to Nicholas! He was full of energy and it was no surprise to me he got picked. I knew the medicine was $6.25 and was not too far off on the rest. I had a true Ted Slauson moment when they revealed the price of the medicine and everyone around me was impressed with my "pricing skills"... or obsession with the show.

I sat next to Ieecha while waiting in line for this episode. She and her family were super nice and I was so excited to see her win Flip Flop!

Robert, who won Do the Math and the showcase was at the same tapings of Wheel of Fortune that I went to the next day. Looks like I wasn't the only one who went on a game show vacation!

I'm surprised they showed a lot of Brandy playing Make Your Move. She took forever. I figured out the solution pretty quickly and everyone near me were trying our best to get her to pick the right combo. She finally had it, we cheered, then she changed her mind. Ugh.

After this episode I got to meet Mike Richards. They had some folks from Fremantle on the stage as we were leaving and they were spinning the Big Wheel and taking some pictures. Mike was standing around talking with George. I got his attention and he came running over to where I was standing, as we were all exiting the studio. He shook my hand and thanked me for coming. I told him how much I love the show... and that I love his version of Pyramid. He actually seems like a really nice guy!

Also, during one of the breaks I told George that I used to watch him on Weakest Link back in the day. He laughed and said he had a lot of fun doing that show.

Well, I've got three more episodes coming up in May- Dream Car Week. Pretty sure I'll get a bit more air time then.  ;-)

Shower Game was played in the most recent French version of TPIR, although the rules were more akin to a 5-option Shell Game (which was its own game on the show):

Me watching this:

"Wow, Shower Game lives on, that's realy surpri..... is that a pinball Plinko?!?!"

I think Telephone Game seemed like a big flop. Same with Double Bullseye. But, as gamesurf said, at least they weren't afraid of trying new things back in the day.

Contestants on the live show are chosen randomly unlike the TV show, but I'm sure they'll appreciate the effort with the shirts :D

Very sorry to hear about your mother, she'll be there with you in spirit.

2nd time , In season 43, he made 5 putts in a row.
Wow, totally forgot about that.

It was labeled as "bisque", which should have been the easy tip off to anyone that it was no where near the cheapest thing there. I had it l pegged at $3.49, before it was revealed.
As you can tell I don't shop for fancy soups too often.
