I think Season 12 might be the record.  Several years later, the Hole in One OR 2 option played out to where someone putting from the 4th or 5th line would win with 2 chances after falling victim to bad luck in his or her first shot.

As for putting from the 1st time or where Bob/Drew putt: I can only recall one guy winning on his first try from that line after some awful pricing (or some tough luck between his first two selections).  Cannot recall it happening prior to the 1999 segment of Season 27 as it's been too long & most people end up putting closer to the hole than not

As is the custom for the marathons on the channel, they’ll be starting at 6 AM Eastern.  It’s probable that they’ll run 12 episodes twice before returning to the rotation at 4885D at 6 AM EST on 07/19/2021.  What’s different is that as of 11-Midnight ET, they’re not scheduled to air the selected episodes in chronological order.  I’m guessing that they’re attempting to mix them up so that we’re not getting all the shows that feature Hurdles wins before the shows that feature all the Super Ball wins.  Here are the following episodes slated for the Golden Games Marathon:


4651 (11/01/82)
4681 (11/22/82)
4711 (12/13/82)
4744 (01/06/83)
4864 (03/31/83)
4882 (04/12/83)
4911 (05/02/83)
4933 (05/18/83)
5013 (09/28/83)
5032 (10/11/83)
5074 (11/10/83)
5143 (01/04/84)


A couple of things:  Similar to the Casino special, these episodes features wins in the four pricing games promoted for the GG Marathon, and a couple episodes features more than one PG from the group of Race Game, Hurdles, Hole in One, and Super Ball!!


This is the first marathon to feature episodes from Season 12, BTW

I also like that we also get our first 1984 Episode in a Marathon.

Hi,
  On ep. ‘180’ today an excited guy won a car and wanted to go see it.  Bob have a long explanation that S&P wouldn’t allow that because he might accidentally see prices backstage.  Anyone else catch that? I found that fascinating, has that ever been mentioned before, is that the ‘real’ reason (sure sounded honest), and since it’s obviously the opposite now, when/why did that change? Just another neat tidbit that make these episodes Gold!

yes, I saw that episode was wondering the same thing and what changed. I wonder if they have the prizes/prices more concealed today than they did back then.

It looks like I'd wager that there will still be at least three more cycles to get through before the next batch of 100 drops. The reset back to 4581D is slated for tonight at 10 PM Eastern/7PM Pacific, with the next cycles starting at the same times on the morning of August 19 and the evening of August 31. 10 AM Eastern on September 13 would be the earliest logical time to start the next batch, with summer vacations fully over by then, as well as being four months since the third 100 was dropped, giving Pluto plenty of time to get the next 100 ready, along with accounting for summer vacations. 5345 is still up on YouTube, as is the On The Nose debut from Season 13's premiere week, along with the is the clip from the Balance Game premiere, but since the later is just a clip in not so good quality and the others in later batches of the next 100, still allows time for those to be blocked on there. The evening of Saturday, September 25 also looks like a good time to drop since that would fall right around S50 premiere week. Something I didn't mention upthread is that Tom Kennedy's plug of Body Language should be included in the next set. We've had five complete or nearly complete cycles at this point since the last 25 episodes were dropped in early in June, and a total of eight seems like a good amount before the next drop, since there were eight cycles IIRC after the last batch from February's drop were released. Also look out for the transitional Penny Ante set since the logo does change to white from the Season 13 episodes I've seen of the game before the color scheme does in 1985.
Now open for tape trading! Please PM me for an offer with a list included.

He appeared on the show? That's the first time I've ever heard of that.......that's really cool to find out, considering he'd host it himself obviously at night just a year later. I hope that episode isn't skipped when they reach it.

Is anyone else seeing Pluto getting sloppier and sloppier with the airings?

I see some segments -- sometimes even the showcases -- cut to commercial in mid-act and then return for the credits. Sometimes, the win of a pricing game is missed because of these bizarre cuts to commercials.

Also, I'm seeing shows beginning a few minutes past the hour like they've drifted off the clock and no one at Pluto has noticed.

And as for commercial breaks -- I'm seeing a spot for Retinol and a spot for PrEP in almost EVERY commercial break. A few weeks back, it was the Ricky Bobby Dodge spot in EVERY commercial break.

Is everyone else seeing these problems or do I need to take my Roku box out back and put it out of its misery?

I haven't noticed any declines in the airings, though that's partially due to the fact that I haven't followed the channel 24/7 in nearly 2 months.  It's hit or miss for me, but it hasn't been that great since December.

You are spot in in terms of them cutting into the middle of segments or just not airing the results at all (the showcase reveal would be edited out and the credits roll instead).  They have cut into the end of segments, usually right after the results.  The last time I watched regularly, it was a hard cut into those Slice commercials/ads.  Those didn't just air every commercial break, but sometimes twice within the break.  Retinol is overplayed as well.  At least they stopped with those Podcast ONE ads!

Three minutes past the hour is the norm.  It's not ideal, but I don't have a problem with that start time.

Anyway, it's not just you in terms of your issues.  However, some factors include one's devices and location.  I was in Florida over the past couple of weeks, and those issues weren't as bad

This isn't unique to Pluto's TPiR channel. I've watched their American Gladiators channel and it has the same issues (awkward start times, having commercial breaks in the middle of games, etc.)

I saw them repeat an entire segment of Galaxy Quest on another channel before as well, and as I recall, skip over a whole part of the movie in the process of doing so. It turned me off honestly seeing it. In looking at time, others have/had said they've done that with movies too (the repeating segments part namely), so yeah....I don't imagine this is just a TPIR channel thing at all. Just Pluto being Pluto seemingly.

During the days of tape trading, well before YouTube, I do recall seeing mention of a Kennedy Cameo.  It would make sense since every other host before and after then that worked on G-T shows on CBS made appearances on TPIR to promote their shows.  I don't know or think (or recall without looking) Chuck Henry ever did.

I too hope it isn't skipped.  I guess it would've gotten lost since much of the second half of Season 12 is absent from the Internet

This seems to happen fairly regularly for me on the Star Trek channel. They'll go to commercial and when it resumes, the previous act starts playing again. If I change the channel and come back, it updates to the proper point in the program. All part of Pluto's kooky charm.

I don't think this has been mentioned elsewhere here, but in the episode reairing now (labeled as #112), there's a pretty hilarious blooper/technical win in 10 Chances. The woman playing (a older Spanish lady named Rachella with lots of character) had nailed the first two prices in one guess, leading Bob to play up that it had never happened before up to then (could that be verified? or was that Bob playing revisionist history as he often did over the years?) where a contestant won all 3 prizes in 1 try. Well....she did...except she didn't lol. She wrote down the wrong price for the car, but the stagehands goofed up and revealed the correct price anyway, leading Bob to of course award it to her on the spot. He then mentioned there'd be an asterisk next to her name ala Roger Maris when he hit 61 home runs. Really entertaining segment/moment and worth watching if you ever catch this episode playing again down the line.

EDIT: Speaking of Pluto being Pluto as far as the previous comments had alluded to.......again, for those that have seen this episode before did Rachella win both SC's? Or just one? I was really hoping to see the ending of this, as I liked her spunk, she was great all the way through her time onstage, but Pluto screwed up the ending and only cut to it mid closing credits. She won some $22,000 total so I am thinking she did, but hard to say. Ticks me off they messed it up though.....it's crazy to me this issue still hasn't been addressed on the channel after so long being in existence (meaning the overall channel not just this one).

It appears they mighta even messed up the opening of the next show with it similar....with an abrupt commercial cut. Ridiculous if so.

Nope. No DSW.  Just an expensive showcase at that time that she won.  Her total included $1,000 cash in the SCSD.  It also helped that her opponent was "upset" no thanks to an overbid despite a bid of less than $6,000
