Holy cow – had there been a Double Showcase rule in the nighttime version, someone could have walked off with $37,666 in Showcase prizes alone. Man – these showcases were packed, even in the final Barker years.

I was surprised at how quickly Any Number went. A good playing, just ended up being one of those games that was over after four picks. How it goes sometimes. Grocery Game, I might have picked the gum no later than my third pick. Picking one of the tart crust as the fourth pick may also have been a good idea, and then just two gums as the final choice ($6.55 plus 30 cents for $6.80 and a win).

I would have been wrong with Most Expensive, as I picked the Tahiti trip.

Anyhow, I watched the episode and I really, really enjoyed it. Thanks for the recap and here's hoping more of these nighttime shows, especially from the Barker years (1977-1980) show up in the future.
