Nice recap.  Just some questions:

- Did Johnny say "And now from Television City in Hollywood, here's the star of The New Price is Right, Bob Barker!" ?  

- Did Grocery Game have the WIN/OVER display?

Well Johnny didn't exactly say that but he said "From Television City in Hollywood, A Fortune in fabulous prizes may go to these people today if they know when the price is right."

Yes the Win/Over display was over the register by this point.

Yeah, he seemed to say one or the other on a lot of early episodes.

At least three of the Five Price Tag podiums got double duty in Most Expensive.  How often did these two games get played on the same episode in the half-hour editions?

Well, after looking at looking at the PG lineups of several dozen of DJ Ryan's episodes, I'd say never.

I hate it when a man wins the entire show. 1/2 hour or hour.

Do you have something against men?

Heidi, I change my mind: ALMOST never. :-)

Your feeling that way probably wouldn't be a big deal at all if you didn't constantly verbalize your disgust every time a man is crowned the winner. It's really getting old.

I find it interesting that in the old days, two games used identical podiums for their games.

I call the 5PT/ME podiums the giant "firecracker" ice pop podiums...that's what they look like to me, LOL! :lol:

They were my favorite 1972 prop, too.

Interesting...No, wait. What's going on here? This isn't the premiere (it was a loss) nor the 2nd playing (a female won). This is the 3rd or 4th playing, because I have the 2nd playing's episode (which had the exact same lineup as this one). Odd...

Well: 'On at least two of Most Expensive's early playings, the lineup was Five Price Tags, Grocery Game, Most Expensive. On both occasions, FPT & ME used the same podiums, separated by a Turntable game while the staff affixed the numbers to them.'

Considering it happened once, it figures it'd happen again.  Remember that they only had a handful of games to pick from, so you'd see the same lineups often.

In fact, if you think about it, the only car games they had at this point in the run were Five Price Tags and Any Number.  Imagine how weird it would be to see Five Price Tags an average of five times every two weeks!

I know, I've been thinking about the same thing.  In the first season, the games must've been played dozens of times.
