Seriously, $19,696? That price doesn't strike anyone as a little bit odd?

Admittedly, $19,660 doesn't look bad as a car price (certainly better than the -96 price did), but I still think it's 28. Last chance for Peter...

That... is not how you want to kick off a fresh week. >_< A loss is one thing, but a loss due to forgetting one of the fundamental ground rules of a game is definite eye-rolling material.

Good news for Patricia: She's got the last-bid advantage right when she needs it the most. And with the fall colors now being past their peak in the Ohio River Valley, you don't want to end up there for any reason now... so let's see if she can escape...

  1. Misery and Heartbreak, thy name is Stack The Deck. I hate this game to my heart.

  2. Nice to know I had the exact same reaction on Stack the Deck's result.

  3. When I saw that "AAA...", I quickly remembered Charlie Brown with his chin pointed high, screaming in agony.

    I've been reading your recaps for quite some time (going back to the GSN days before the buzz was phrased out). You've had a lot of running gags and pet peeves (such as the anime ones). Which running gag and pet peeve do you like the most when doing these Price Is Right recaps?
