I usually groan when I see Pathfinder, because I know it's going to be a loss. Then we get a contestant like the one today, and I remember why this game is so good. It may be difficult, but when it's won, it's so satisfying. Congratulations to Miguel on his win!

Card Game was such a forced loss (though some of that is at the foot of the contestants who should be thinking of the price at the start, not the number of draws). As soon as the contestant said “one more” on the second draw I knew we were in trouble because she was thinking of the number of draws, not the price. Drew was wise to say “you could take 10 more if you want.” That struck me as $28k SUV and and, wouldn’t you know, $28k.

I don’t think the crew wanted Grand Game won either.   I NEVER would have guessed the Motrin to be under $7.50.   I thought that one was above the target price.

I was watching every day in the fall while I was on paternity leave, but admittedly I haven't seen much since then. I watched this episode and a couple others in the last week, and I have to say it feels like this show is in a new golden age.

Drew has reached a new level as a host. The main cast has longevity we haven't seen in decades. They have good rapport (I've enjoyed Drew's banter with James as of late). Contestant casting has improved drastically. Prizes have gotten less outlandish. There's more space for interacting with contestants.

This might not be the exact same show that it was when I was growing up. It's certainly not perfect. But it's the fun, positive, exciting, funny, happy show that I remember. It brings me joy in a way that it hasn't in a long time.

At the conclusion of S52 I'd planned to write a post in the main forum echoing exactly this. I've been enthusiastic about S52 all over this forum and I can't add anything to this. I've been tuning in more frequently (and even made my first trek to the show) because there's a magic in the air there hasn't been in a very long time. And I assure you that magic is there just as much in person as it is at home. I lay a lot of the credit at Evelyn Warfel and her production of the show. She navigated COVID and a required move while also shifting the show to seek more grounded contestants that are a cross-section of America (rather than the viral wanna-bes Stan/Mike seemed to want to find at the end of their tenures). I also have to give a lot of credit to Drew as having an audience back seemed to do something to kick him into a high gear he didn't know he had. Not only is he more relaxed and having more fun but he also seemed more positive and upbeat in general.

And when the show I attended airs (a week from Monday), I'll also be ruminating on George as announcer and how he was really star of the show when we were there in person. He's also got an infectious warm positivity that seems to remind me of what people said about Johnny in person back in the day. I wrote something along the lines of he treated that audience like they were guests in his personal living room...and he sure made that whole day feel like it. That translates on camera I think.

Just tune into the Pluto Drew eps to make a comparison. I know its a bit apples to oranges given Drew was only with the show 3 years when those were taped and aired (I admit it wouldn't be fair to compare Barker in S3 and S17). But something was still vey different. Drew and Rich were more disconnected from the goings on. The contestants were so much more over the top. Gameplay seemed to be secondary to the commotion on screen. It really is night and day.
