The TALK Is Right / Re: Now and Then

Welcome back, Jnasty!  :-D

OK, how many of you clicked on this thread thinking there would be a discussion of when/why the name of the pricing game was changed to "Now...OR Then"...or that there would be a discussion of game play strategy, such as: There are always 4 NOWs and 2 THENs on the board? 

<raises hand sheepishly  :-o >

Oklahoma State beats Texas Tech 45-35 on Thursday, September 25.
Coach Mike Gundy (OSU coach) wasn't too happy about it since OSU made too many mistakes.  ;)

The TALK Is Right / Now and Then

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.

Thanks!

Pay the Rent: The strategy of this game is to work from the top.
Lucky $even: Miss a number by 3 or more before the final digit and You likely lose the game.

Jeopardy! and Hollywood Squares.................When it comes down to it, which one really made a strong impact? Squares really have a good celeb base, great hosts, the tic-tac-toe premise, and Shadoe Stevens. J! is a great brain-teaser with some pretty good contestants where you can't wait to see how far they can go, and The Trebek. So far, I'm afraid Trebek and J! take this one.

Jeopardy! 6-5

Now I can admit that Wheel and Feud have jumped the shark numerous times, whether it be gimmicks and/or hosts, but it seems that the Harvey version is been overused too many times, mostly of its more risqué nature than previous versions...........Now we can see it on BET and TV Land. Sheesh! We get enough of that on syndication and GSN. So I'm sticking the Wheel and Sajak and Vanna.

Wheel Of Fortune 7-4

Best straight quiz v best comedy game final tally? What is J! 7, HS 4
Again, FF is today equal of the 7X MG, WOG has turned into the time killer played on the bar machine that also has Mah Jongg and Draw Poker, FF 7 WOF 4. FF finds a way to correct itself, WOF is a poor man's ego fix.

I got hot and spicy :p

Yeah, this is a total team effort. I agree OL has been rough, basically playing Musical Chairs. I don't remember the last time the defense got shredded this bad. It's a shame that Brady took a paycut, yet the Pats continue to struggle developing wide receivers. They've already cut bait on Josh Boyce and as Prizes mentioned, both Thompkins and Dobson were out tonight. And unfortunately, Randy Moss isn't walking through that door anytime soon.

I've also been disappointed by Nate Solder, who looked like he was becoming one of the better left tackles in the league. But he has taken a step back this season. Big test next week against a Bengals team coming off a bye. But it's also been quite some time since New England has lost two straight.

*popcorn*

EDIT: Jay Glazer reporting Dennis Allen fired as head coach of the Raiders, and this time, I believe it because Jay Glazer.

So there are some of us who like the new Clock Game prop, and some who don't.  Not surprising.  But either way, it beats the hell out of the altogether lack of a prop for Clock Game on TnPIR'94!  (Unless you actually count the video wall, which was multiple-purpose, as a prop.)
