TPiRecap: 26 September 2013

I think I've got the colors and such just about right now. We'll see.

Also, a brief programming note: Make certain you watch tomorrow's episode. I won't give anything away here just in case you haven't already heard, but something that has never been done before in the 41-year history of The Price is Right on CBS will take place. Also, if you're wondering why a certain mega-popular Pricing Game has yet to be seen in this Premiere Week... well, all I can say is, you'll get your answer tomorrow.

But for now, let's deal with today, shall we?

Five Price Tags:
2013 Fiat 500 Pop (1.4L, elec stability ctrl, 15" alum wheels; DD)

Despite everything, I find this is still one of my favorite car games on the show. Something is obviously very, very wrong with me.

(RR with the tags)
$16,390
$18,625
$19,450
$20,095
$17,200

Leaning towards $16,390 or $18,625.

(You know the who, but not the when: First DD, then RR)

Interesting to note that the visible portion of the Price Wikipedia article explicitly acknowledges Bob Stewart as the show's creator -- which is, I believe, only the second time in the show's history they've publicly, if subtly in this case, admitted this fact. (The first time being last year, when they dedicated an episode to his memory shortly after his passing.)

Also, future contestants take note: See what happens when you call more Trues than Falses? Trust me, you're more likely to get a good result that way than by automatically assuming (as most players who get this game seem to) that every price you're shown is bogus.

Pick #1
$17,200
WIN!
COLOR ME IMPRESSED!

I would've lost on this one but good! I never even considered $17,200 on the grounds that car prices so rarely end in -00 around here; in fact, I can probably count the number of times that's happened in my memory, which goes back to the days of four-digit cars, on one hand.

Mind you, I'm not complaining.

2. Blackberry smartphone w/1yr calling plan (450 mins & 3GB data/mo) (JE)

Flip Flop:
Trip to the Bahamas (5n, Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort & Spa Offshore Island; RR)

Once again, I must ask the burning question of our times... "Is there such a thing as an on-shore island?"

97
84

He needs to either Flip or Flip Flop; I somehow doubt, given recent trends, the $9,784 option.

Jade Flips...

See what I mean? The trip department is still in Budget Mode, methinks, despite this being the start of a new season. Go figure?

Not content with one game on the show where the stage mark is to the left of Door #2, we now trot out the other one, Safe Crackers:

Nailed me too, on pretty much the same product. I was staying off the eye shadow and the cleaner. >_<

Not much I can add here. I actually picked the home gym at first, but then changed my mind to the computer on the grounds that it wouldn't have been that obvious. Yeah, I suck.

No sense in belaboring the point about where Brittoni's headed if she doesn't get out of the Row this time...

6. Trip to San Diego, CA (limo, 6n, Best Western Plus Hacienda Hotel, 3½hr whale watching tour) (GG at the Gray Area)
