TPiRecap: 27 October 2014

Just to remind everyone real quick before we start, this week's only gonna have four first-run episodes due to the cancellation of this year's Halloween special. Friday's episode will instead be a repeat of last year's Spook-tacular.

$9,955 seems weird to me, but weird prices have been the way to go before in this game, so that's what I'm going with.

    If they were, it would be a Chevy Suburban or Mercedes G-Class, IMHO. Not a Prius!

  2. Devin,why don't you just shut up about Grocery Game? It's getting really annoying.

    1. Not nearly as annoying as seeing people play it thinking they have to do it in one shot.

      Seriously, Shaun, and all kidding aside... since it seems like everything I do here annoys you on some level, why do you keep coming here? Do you just get your kicks out of being professionally unpleasant, or something?

  3. FYI, CBS.com is listing Friday's episode as a new one, not a rerun. Dunno if it's accurate or not.

    1. And priceisright.com is listing it as a repeat. When the CBS and show websites conflict on airdates, experience has taught me the show's website generally has the right of it more times than not.
