That's one cheap pool table, by Price standards. All I knew for sure was, it wasn't the computer.

Why is it "old school?" Because they forgot to add the title prop to the set! Whoops.

...does not seem to work very well.

Only two playings into Punchy's new slip distribution, and it's still much too soon to tell if it's having any positive effect. We need at least six or so under our belts before we can begin entertaining the notion of jumping to any conclusions here.

By the way... No, I will not start keeping track of "saved shows." Some of you want me to start doing that to help prove a conspiracy theory that the show is being intentionally tanked (spelled R-I-G-G-E-D) to save the budget. Well, I don't cater to the tinfoil-hat crowd here, so that's not happening... besides, the tpirsummaries site already keeps this stat (look under Other Stats -> Overall -> 1/6 Pricing Games won), so you can look there if you insist on looking for the proverbial black helicopters.

(CC2: Ambulance chasers... only slightly more tolerable than armchair Oliver Stones)

Ronald, Nikki, and Gustavo receive VocoPro karaoke microphones and Capresso coffeemakers.

Whoever decided to push in that close on Jacqueline's first spin... yeah, you kinda need to never do that again. "Disorienting" is a good word for the effect.
