I have not posted to this site in years. When Bob retired and Drew took over, I became really disinterested in the show. I did not like seeing Drew Carey in Bob's position. All of the magic from season 35 and before was instantly gone in season 36. Drew was hosting Bob's show at that point, at least in my eyes. I stopped taping shows, quit coming to this site, and basically just forgot about Price for a few years. In 2009, my son was born. After a few years, I got to thinking about when I was his age, and how it came to be that I began watching the show back in the 80's, and it was because of my Mom. We would eat lunch and watch Price every day, and today, when I pop in a old Barker tape or DVD, I can't help but to think about what got me into the show to begin with. So, a few years ago, when my son was about 3, I started putting in old Barker DVD's for him to watch, as I was still kind of meh on the current show. I know the show had come into its own with Drew over the years, so I decided to give it another chance, and truthfully, I really enjoy turning on the show again and watching current episodes. Season 43 has been awesome so far. I love the set, the interaction Drew has with George and the models, and I think he really does a fine job (my only beef is the wheel, he doesn't refer to it as showcase showdown, and never says "cents" after the dollar amount).
I guess entire point of my long winded post, is that when my boy is an adult, hopefully still watching Price, I want him to be able to look back, as I do, and remember what sparked his love for the show all those years ago.
It's a blast to watch it with him also, and awesome that he enjoys watching Price from the 70's through today, and he's only 5.
