The TALK Is Right / Re: Your TPiR Confessions

Pay the Rent is my favorite game on the show, because there’s another game within the game. In addition to knowing the prices, you also have to know how to arrange them, and as we all know, it’s not as intuitive as it looks.

The TALK Is Right / Re: Your TPiR Confessions

Also, I think people are willing to overlook some of Roger Dobkowitz's flaws as a Price is Right producer (in my opinion, an inability to change and adapt, and his own problems with hard set-ups) purely out of nostalgia.

To a point, I agree. But by the same token, I remain amazed at how much people were willing to overlook, from day one, the sub-par post-Barker years and continue to act as if Drew Carey is the greatest emcee of all time. It's almost as if some people are afraid they'll have to give up their LFaT card if they criticize anything at all. For some of us, that is just as annoying.

Pay The Rent may be a top 10 pricing game for me.

(cheers and applause)

(fade to closeup of Magic # prop, then slowly zoom out)

In a minute, you're going to play Magic # two great prizes, and George, what are they?





GEORGE: They are His & Hers golf clubs, and a perfect place to take them, a trip to Augusta! (Rachel and James model them) (1994 Trip Cue) (cheers and applause) First, these Cobra Men's & Women's golf clubs each have a complete set of irons, woods and wedges, plus a driver and putter, each coming with its own bag and a set of PGA-approved golf balls. And second, you and a guest will fly round-trip coach from Los Angeles to Augusta, Georgia, for a six-night stay at the Courtyard by Marriott Augusta. Enjoy Southern hospitality at its very best in this charming town, and marvel at Augusta National Golf Course, where legends like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods perfected their game. Daily breakfast, day passes at Augusta National and golf lessons for two are included!



Let me give you one hint before we get started: The trip to Augusta is more expensive than the golf clubs. Therefore, you must set a magic number that is more than the price of the golf clubs, but less than the price of the trip. If you do it successfully, you win them both. And here's how you set the magic number: You just take this lever and push it up, like this. (does so, and random sounds play) If you believe that you may have gone too high, you can push it back down. So let me set it back to zero, to make it fair. (pushes lever back down until 0 is shown on display) Now get over there and set that magic number!

(random Magic # sounds play)

The part of the promo for "Evil" with TPIR was very weird, IMHO.

"Very weird" doesn't even begin to cover it. It was so out of place. And counter to the TPIR vibe. And while it got my attention, it certainly won't lead me to watch the show.

Out In Left Field / Re: OBIT: Kobe Bryant

I hate to be nitpicky, particularly on a solemn topic like this, but... (snip)

I stand corrected--it's easy to overlook things like that when browsing on a mobile device.

...but I would never tell my friend to “get over himself”. Kobe filled a role in a lot of people’s lives in a way that not many people will ever get the chance to do.

You're absolutely right about the bold part, and I don't disagree. That said, your friend also probably doesn't have the history of making rather dubious (and at times even ludicrous) statements that people around here do.

Let them have this.

I have a close friend who grew up in SoCal whose dad died very young. Sports was something he used to cope. Kobe filled that gap for an a present male role model. Kobe’s career got him into seriously following the NBA, and sparked interest in a career in statistics. He didn’t “know” Kobe, personally, but Kobe shaped his childhood is a massive way. Kobe was somebody who my friend invited into his home weekly, during the hard times as well as the good times. When my friend heard the news yesterday, he told me he felt that part of his childhood died. He knows life will go on, but for now he’s still legit heartbroken, nothing performative about it.

The NBA doesn’t have that same huge emotional pull on me, but I would never tell my friend to “get over himself”. Kobe filled a role in a lot of people’s lives in a way that not many people will ever get the chance to do.
