Well, I guess this was coming eventually, but nevertheless it is a letdown given the non-car/cash were all very winnable. Why in particular are we mishearing higher/lower at critical points lately?

OA was extremely annoying because on Feb. 20, the $17,326 Fiat was used... that contesant went $17,328... and also changed the 3rd number on 4 right.

Secret X... what's left that they're willing to try? It might make for a lineup twist but the underlying intent is just no fun. That said, the SPs were very reasonable and of course it has to be on the bottom there, so at least nothing extra cruel.

And finally... waaaaaaaaaaay too much crap flying around. Someone tell Drew bring your son to work day does not include the on-air portions, never mind two damn OB people.

Post by: PriceBusterXL on June 12, 2012, 03:54:06 PM
Nothing more than a one-hour disappointment:

THE BAD NEWS:

No wins on any pricing games for the contestants (Except a half loss on Clock Game), and they would've gotten away with it if it wasn't for that meddling kid (Sorry, Connor).


THE GOOD NEWS:

No DOB.

I really do like kids, but Drew should've known that his son was gonna be a jinx (Sorry, but I call it like I see it) when he "helped out" with the pricing games.............And Mike should've never agree to this. Plus, why put a car on Secret X?! Probably one of the worst shows this season.

And the utter disaster of a show that we all knew was coming. This may not have technically been a skunk, but it was one of the worst shows of the season. I can understand how having Connor come out at the intro works, and I've liked the way they've used him in showcases, but having him randomly stand around adds nothing except lots and lots of annoyance to the show. And trust me, this show didn't need any annoyance added to it. Between another awful Clock Game playing, Secret X for a car blatantly inserted to get a loss (although I guess it was semi-cool to see that for the first time since 1998), $6 cinnamon sticks (yikes - happy end of season there) and two more OB guests, the annoyance factor was quite high enough already. I guess it's best just to dump all the bad on one show, so we were able to enjoy the shows of the past two weeks. But please, someone needs to get Drew and Connor in line. I hope we have some good shows left in this last week.

Timings:
One Away (5) - 5:35
One Wrong Price (3.5) - 3:19
Grand Game (5) - 4:33
Push Over (4) - 3:28
Secret X (4.5) - 4:32
Clock Game (4.5) - 4:51
Total (26.5): 26:08

Not true. Secret X was played for a car on Christmas week in 2004.

The last time Secret "X" was played for a car was May 10, 2007.  Prior to that, it was the time 3StrikesFan talked about (December 24, 2004).  Prior to that, it was April 8, 1999.  The 1998 playing Kev347 was referring to was the time prior to the 1999 playing I just said.

Did Drew call Connor his "son"? I thought he was his ex-girlfriend's child. Drew is neither his biological nor his adoptive father.

And I'm pretty sure Connor blocked the Push Over contestant from seeing the reveal. If they're going to use him on the show, they should teach him where to stand and what to do, not just let him wander around aimlessly.

What a horrible show today.  Thank goodness there was not a double overbid in the showcase.

IMO, they should've given the iPad & the bonus to Mary on Clock Game because the clock did not stop right away when she said $810 for the luggage.

But then again, I could tell that Drew cared less about what Connor did throughout the show.......And even though I don't have anything against Drew or Connor, but if he can't keep his kid in check, then maybe he shouldn't bring him back again. For all our sakes anyway.

Been a while since we've seen Connor.  I'd rather see him on this show than Daniel Goddard, that's for damn sure.

Grand Game was tricky, but winnable.  I know that whole cinnamon sticks are expensive, so it was a winning setup for me.

But what I really wanna know is how they kept that bag of ice from melting all over the Grand Game set when it's sitting under those hot studio lights.

Ashley furniture in Pushover... anybody else besides me tempted to say 0549? :-D

Secret X for a car... pick the bottom!  It's always the bottom when it's for a car!

How many times did Margaret #2 say $850 in Clock Game?  She was almost as bad as Donna, who was obsessed with $550 two months ago.  But unlike most terrible Clock Game contestants, Margaret #2 realized halfway through her bidding that she screwed up when she went higher than $900 after being told "lower".

My showcase bids:
:frbs --$27,107
Car--$27,107

Won 1WP, PushOver and Secret X.  Will never know on Clock Game, although if I hosted, I would have stopped the clock and told her the range she has, not restarting until after her next bid (something Dennis James used to do during his tenure as TPIR-nighttime host)

Post by: little star on June 12, 2012, 08:49:25 PM
Brutal heart-break loss to start the day.  One-Away is a BAD game to bat lead-off on the show.

One Wrong Price would have been won 99 times out of 100 with that so easy setup.  But of course, our contestant today was in that 1%.

EVIL Grand Game setup strikes again.

We have yet another 1% loser here.  Pushover only had 1 possible choice that made sense.

The blender grinds up another victim in Secret X.

All I can say about Clock Game i-yi-yi.

Another boat win in the Showcase.

Post by: stardf29 on June 12, 2012, 09:45:59 PM
Well, uh, aside from the distractions from Connor and various completely random OB guests, it was... still pretty bad.

One Away: well, if she was playing for the Fiat 500, she would have aced it. Any of the last 3 could have reasonably needed changing, though I figured it'd be the last digit.

One Wrong Price: This, though, shouldn't have been lost. That motorcycle is on the cheaper side, but no way was it that cheap.

Grand Game: I knew the cinnamon sticks were a trap. Spices can be quite expensive, after all.

Push Over: Ashley furniture = cheap. Those steaks sure weren't going to change that.

Secret "X": Well, there's our "X on the bottom" setup, predictably with the car at stake. GPs were okay; both were fair toss-ups.

Clock Game: Margaret made a critical error by not catching "lower than 900". Had she not made that mistake, she would have won this game.

I'm curious as to why you feel this way - all I really ever see Daniel do is model/flip price tags. He may not necessarily add anything to the show, but he doesn't take away from it, either.

Drew did legally adopt Connor long before his break up occured. Good to see he's still involve, regardless of the split with his ex.

Let's be honest... there really is no need for a male model on The Price is Right.
And there's been no need for a letter turner on Wheel of Fortune in 15 years.

So Connor is growing up. How nice. Still...I didn't like him on the show at all. Daniel Goddard is definitely better than Connor. Nothing is wrong with walking through the doors with Connor, but once you get the mic have Amber take him with her. What an unneeded distraction.

What a fail in Push Over. There was one clear answer, you had it, and then you jump to a ludicrous extreme. Sigh.

Secret X for a car! That was great to see. Unfortunately, you knew exactly where the X was. At least the SPs were reasonable.

Clock Game disaster on aisle 6! Wow, was that bad.

Feel the need to rewrite this lineup, so here goes:
Clock Game

Push Over
1 Wrong Price
One Away
Grand Game

Not to mention it seems like another reason to break 30+ year tradition because they can. Not to mention Drew feels the need to plug him 43257836 times every time he's on the show.

Then maybe it's time they brought back the Model Search contest again. I know it has been 3 years since that happened, but it'll be good for Mike to add more fresh and FEMALE faces and quit finding some lame-ass excuse to keep using Goddard.

No need for that attitude, just because you know it's true. Both of those reasons are not true at all, it does not come off as desperate for ratings, and it is not Mike's way of spiting the Dob and the Show's 30+ year tradition, but thanks for the Conspiracy Theory.

Also: I'd like to add that I have not seen one female argue against Daniel being on the show....

Vanna models prizes and reveals answers. Daniel models prizes and reveals answers. Real big.

Some traditions deserve to be broken, not to mention that it is the most frivolous tradition. It worked for 39 years, but that doesn't mean it was some stigma that Roger and Bob specifically set in place.

It comes off as desperate for ratings and out of place.
Yes, because being #1 in viewers is real desperate.

And as for out of place. I just don't see it. When I first saw Daniel, I was afraid he was going to be an annoying guest who talked every chance he got and appeared on a regular basis. Instead he stands there, models, and doesn't say anything. Real out of place.

Post by: EyeMobileScott on June 13, 2012, 06:19:49 PM
The Daniel Goddard card is actually one that Richards & Co. have played right during their tenure as producers. His role is minimal: he appears maybe 4 or 5 times per show--usually modeling prizes that are genuinely more "masculine" (power tools, motorcycles, etc.); doesn't speak unless he's spoken to and, perhaps most importantly, he keeps his shirt on.
Check his IMDB, this guy played "The BeastMaster" in the syndicated show of the same name about ten years back. How easy it would be for the producers to take advantage of that at every kayak or home gym up-for-bids and reduce the mostly female studio audience to a shrieking horde not seen or heard since the glory days of "The Ricki Lake Show."

Here's a pic, just in case you were wondering:

Vanna models prizes and reveals answers. Daniel models prizes and reveals answers. Real big.

We're comparing, here, at least, whether a show should have male models to a whether a show should even have a model.

So yeah, real big.

Some traditions deserve to be broken, not to mention that it is the most frivolous tradition. It worked for 39 years, but that doesn't mean it was some stigma that Roger and Bob specifically set in place.

The really sucky attempt at male modeling in Season 39 also left a bad taste in my mouth, and set in my mind that I never again wanted to see a male model.

So, guilt by association? Maybe. Do I care? No.

Yes, because being #1 in viewers is real desperate.

Remember who thought this was a good idea.

We're comparing, here, at least, whether a show should have male models to a whether a show should even have a model.

The puzzle board can be remotely operated, but if Vanna weren't there, who would do the commercial lead-ins and other things she does, Pat or Jim? Having three different voices on the show and the on-site appearances that Vanna makes give some variety even if the original "letter-turner" role is superfluous.

The really sucky attempt at male modeling in Season 39 also left a bad taste in my mouth, and set in my mind that I never again wanted to see a male model.

So, guilt by association? Maybe. Do I care? No.

I don't remember who you're referring to, but you're judging an entire gender's ability to model by the fact that you didn't like one guy or a few guys who did it? That's like saying you didn't like Holly Hallstrom, so the show should never have redheaded models.

Remember who thought this was a good idea.

As much as I dislike some of the unnecessary and silly changes on the show in the last few years, I don't agree with the argument that "this was Mike's idea, therefore it sucks by definition."

The Daniel Goddard card is actually one that Richards & Co. have played right during their tenure as producers. His role is minimal: he appears maybe 4 or 5 times per show--usually modeling prizes that are genuinely more "masculine" (power tools, motorcycles, etc.); doesn't speak unless he's spoken to and, perhaps most importantly, he keeps his shirt on.

I totally agree.  This is one of the few things Mike & Co. have managed to get right.

Well, in some way, that is true. Sometimes Goddard is actually O.K.......In small doses, anyway.

I've gotten used to seeing Daniel on the show.  I've felt for quite some time that the show needed a male model not only so the ladies have something to look at but me as well.  My only minor nitpick is they should teach him how to model better rather than just stand there and clap like Vanna White.  Other than that, I think he's a nice little addition to the Price is Right family.

Speaking of family, I find Connor adorable though I do agree that he's a bit of a distraction.  I admire Drew and company for having him on the show, but I don't think he needs to be on the stage unless they want to feature him showing off a prize that's geared towards children.  Maybe when he gets a little older he'll be able to do things that are less distracting and more useful.
