TPiRecap: 8 May 2013



Episode # 6343K
Airdate 8 May 2013
VTR 27 March 2013
First Four George, Hannah, Kevin, Stephanie
Today's Models Manuela Abreález, Amber Lancaster, Rob Wilson

Note that, due to WBNS breaking into the intro for an update on a major car crash (two semis, three cars) on the far west side of the city, the intro segment was clipped out. Thus, I missed the order the First Four were called down in, as well as who did the handoff. Minor details all, so I didn't bother to fill in those blanks...

Onward, while my headache allows it.

On the bright side, if the game was That's Too Much!... But yeah, now you know why we don't see this game all that often. Of all the Big Ticket games, this one's usually the biggest downer.

A rare instance where I knew someone had gotten the exacta the moment he bid. ^^;

Now....or Then:
Afire barbecue bistro set w/accessories & SunBriteTV all-weather HDTV w/3 Strikes win ($7,361; MA)

The "Then" date is June of 1986. That's a difference of twenty-seven years, which might be the longest ever.

  • Kibbles 'n Bits dog food
  • Ragú pizza sauce
  • Quaker State quick oats (Drew: "Nothing makes your car run better!")
  • Gold Bond Ultimate Diabetic lotion ***ANACHRONISM ALERT***
  • Betty Crocker Bac-Os bacon bits
  • Libman Freedom concentrated floor cleaner ***ANACHRONISM ALERT***

...Come on, folks, the lotion even has the word "New!" printed on it! If anyone says ANYTHING other than "Now" for that one, I will probably set a new world distance record for the Flatscreen Punt.

Then: June 1986

3. Sauce

EASY PEASY ONE-TWO-THREESY!

With two anachronisms on the table and such a huge time gap, this almost has the feel of a forced win. And yes, this time it can be said.

There's a spot reserved on Leftover Island for Kevin, unless he bids his way out now...

6. The Pioneer Car Audio System of Sledgehammer-Like Subtlety (RW)

Jeez, if I keep sending people to that island, it's probably gonna sink into the Ohio River by the end of the week.

Okay, let's take stock. We've had our GP game (Now... or Then), so it won't be Stack the Deck. We've had our SP game (Punchy), so it probably won't be Pathfinder. All it has to be is anything other than That's Too Evil and we're probably safe...

DAMN YOU, RICHAAAAAAARDS!!!:
