Out In Left Field / Re: Wheel and Jeopardy Return
« Last post by wheelfan1991 on Today at 10:51:23 AM »
I've often thought that. Makes sense considering how they've done a lot to cut corners over the last few years. I mean they don't even take the show on the road any more, except for once in Season 35. I remember not too many years ago, there were leaked emails from Sony that showed they were considering taking the show international and going around the world visiting countries that have their own versions of Wheel and taping shows there. Now, the most we get is Pat and Vanna doing B-rolls from different cities in the US that and dressing the set in Culver City to look like said city for a week. I mean, it's okay, but also comes off kinda cheap and cheesy. Of course, Miss Rona has halted doing any of that right now, anyway. But, in the future, I'd love to see Mike pick that back up again. All in all, Wheel has stayed true to the core of the game ever since its inception. For that they can be praised. But there's still a lot they could do to spruce it up. A fresh coat of paint never hurt anyone. Again, I want to give Mike time to get acclimated in to the role. But it makes me wonder, even though he is Executive Producer, if Sony is preventing him from having the creative control you'd expect an EP to have? He appeared to have pretty much free reign with Price. Maybe Sony treated Harry the same way in his final years. Maybe for budgetary reasons? Who knows...It still looks like J! gets all the perks and Wheel gets the crumbs.

Just because I've already edited one post-

The football team in our nation's capital is currently called the "Washington Football Team". Their former nickname is offensive to Native Americans and has rightfully and mercifully been retired. As such, I'd ask that nobody use said nickname in this thread as well. It's in the past. Leave it there. The current name might be silly, but it's their name; let's use it until they come up with something better.

Yes!! My Cardinals are 2-0 after coming away with a 30-15 win over the Washington Football Team as Kyler Murray threw a touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins and ran for 2 himself. :) Go Cardinals.

The Cowboys only had a 2% win probability halfway through the 4th 1/4. Amazing win for the Cowboys as the ghost of 28-3 came back to haunt the Falcons again.

Josh Allen threw for 417 yards and 4 touchdowns as the Bills went to 2-0 with a 31-28 win over the Dolphins.

I'm REALLY surprised that the Bears are 2-0. When Scott Hanson ran through a list of 2-0 teams and the Bears were on it, I gasped. This is a genuine intuitive surprise to me.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs are 2-0 as Patrick Mahomes did his thing in the 4th 1/4 and is 9-0 in September. Harrison Butker made a game tying 30 yard field goal on the last play of regulation and an incredible game winning 58 yard field goal in overtime! Wow!

The team in Washington has finally got rid of that offensive nickname; I'd ask you to not use it as well. Sure the current name is silly, but it exists for a very good reason.

Aw, come on, I wanted to see Jenny McCarthy's episode again!

/s if there ever was one.

Overall, an improvement over just choosing random specials. I kind of wanted hope to see the multicam experience again (although it was the year prior and the only way it would happen is a week of past Socially Awesome episodes), but Jack Black and Snoop Dogg were both a treat. Honestly, I don't remember the other three episodes, so it'll be nice watching them pretty much fresh.

The only thing HIMYM related I can recall from Neil Patrick Harris' episode was that there was a walk-on role for one of the contestants in the showcases. And I also agree with you using celebrity guest episodes than some random collection of special shows that was originally intended for this week.

I wonder if they got the idea from Jeopardy doing that in their rerun period. I could see that.

Seeing Snoop Dogg's episode again is great. Surprised they're going with rerunning Jane Lynch's episode since she's about to start hosting the new Weakest Link on NBC. I don't recall how much How I Met Your Mother was mentioned on NPH's episode, but I wonder if they'll edit out anything referencing it since it's no longer in production.

Also, I think they will edit out references to the name tags being auctioned off as they raffled off some autographed "Snoop" TPiR nametags to the contestants, and had one that could be won on the website according to the recap for the Snoop Dogg episode.

I didn't follow the Giants game that much (I'm actually tuning into the US Open during the period of all the sports at the same time).  I did hear about it and saw an image of him being carried off, and I was not happy.  Wasn't sure of the injury, but before the fears set in, I didn't for once think it was a minor thing where New York was being cautious for their star RB.

That sucks for the Giants, but I though Barkley was in danger last Monday against Pittsburgh.  Speaking of which, New York is coming off of a short week playing a Sunday afternoon game following a Monday night game. This in a season where injuries are slated to occur more often than the norm

While Dallas celebrated there come from behind win against Atlanta. Sources are telling ESPN that the New York Giants are fearing that running back Saquon Barkley tore the ACL in his right knee after trainers carried him off the field after a run early in the first quarter against the Chicago Bears and appeared to be in serious pain.

Atlanta blew leads of 29-10 and 39-24 and lost to Dallas, 40-39. What doomed them was the failure to properly recover Dallas'  onside kick. Instead of falling on the ball, the Falcons just let it roll ten yards and allowed Dallas to recover it. The Cowboys kicked the winning field goal with :00 left.
