It appears that Pluto is starting to skip certain episodes slated for the Golden Games Marathon, which is schedule for one week from this Sunday.  Looks like they're 3 hours ahead of what I had mapped out on my spreadsheet, and 4933D is getting skipped within the next few hours (original CBS airdate 05/18/1983)

Just out of curiosity, do you know at this point what episodes are being skipped and reserved for the upcoming Golden Games marathon?  I'd like to find out so I can adjust my schedule on my spreadsheet accordingly.

Currently they are airing 4914D, which is 3 hours in advance of what was slated to air.  The next skip for marathon purposes (presumably) occurs on Wednesday, July 7th at 4 AM Eastern

What would be the expected skipped episode tomorrow morning at 4 a.m. ET?

Also, how many episodes are expected to be shown in the marathon?

4933D is expected to be skipped. Plus, based off of all the past marathons, with the exception of the Christmas Marathon (since it occurred within the first month of the channel), there should be 12 shows for the Golden Games special

The next episode I was hoping to record is the Season 12 premiere, which was originally expected to be shown on Pluto at 11:00 a.m. ET, but since we know that three episodes - maybe more as of this post - will have been skipped and possibly being reserved for the July 18 marathon, I wonder what episodes are being skipped before the next Pluto airing of the Season 12 premiere?  As of early this morning, that season premiere replay was pushed back to 8:00 a.m. ET tomorrow, if my math is correct.

I'm guessing episodes that features or featured (big) wins from Race Game, Hole In One, and Super Ball

If this is the case, they're choosing the cream of the crop in terms of wins on Hurdles, Hole in One, Superball and Race Game.

The episode which was skipped early this morning had Hole in One being won, and the car was expensive. Makes a whole lot of sense as to why they are skipping it and reserving it for the marathon.

Yeah.  It's pretty much what they did with Hit Me & Poker Game for the Casino Marathon.


Super Ball may be difficult to add, but from September 1982 - February 1984, it was won (with the Super Ball going into the WIN circle) at least 3 times

I am also thinking that, regarding Race Game, it may likely be based on how fast it took to win all four prizes.

I believe one of the promos includes that (a record at that time).  I don't think it was won that much within the Pluto content, so any win might do

As of the 11 PM Eastern hour, there are no skips.  I believe that's the case through the morning of July 8th EST.  At that point we'll be into Season 12.  FWIW, much of the biggest or special wins in all the games (except Hurdles) occur in this season (unlike in Season 11).  That includes a 6th line putt in five consecutive occasions where Hole in One is won.


From the four featured pricing games, the show will have a ton to choose from in terms of wins in Hole in One and Race Game.  Super Ball had a couple wins max (in Season 12).  Then there's Hurdles which wasn't featured as much in Season 11 but enough to include it in the marathon.

One thing to consider: some (or just one) episodes might include a Race Game win but a Hole In One loss, so I would figure that they wouldn't want to add that to the special.  There is one episode that features a win in more than one of the "Golden Games" specifically 4744D

Am I to understand that to mean, that Hole in One was won 5 times in a row from the 6th line? That's pretty amazing if so.

No. I'm sorry (for not being as clear as possible).  Each win in Hole In One from October 1983 to January 1984 featured someone putting for the sixth line.  There were some losses within that timeframe, but every time a winner was crowned, he or she played the game perfectly.  Nobody putting from the 4th or 5th line (no bonus with those).

It's still amazing regardless

Oh.....I totally misunderstood the quote....I was reading it in reverse (ie: Each win saw the contestant putting from the very last/back line). It being the first line makes more sense, still pretty amazing though. I'd be curious with this what the record for a single season would be of this occurring. Would anyone be able to know? I can't imagine it'd be much higher than this.
