Our Annual Salute to Breast Cancer Survivors, Fighters, and Supporters

October is, of course, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and once again Price is getting its pink on with an episode dedicated to fighters and survivors of the disease; from our contestants to many of the prizes offered. It's only fitting that we should adopt an appropriate color scheme for the day.

Apropos of nothing, but when is Dice Game getting a new look? I keep thinking this or Magic # are next in line for plasma-screen upgrades, the latter now reportedly being so dilapidated that it can no longer be played during the first half of any given episode (as it takes that long just for the computer controlling it to fully boot up), and Dicey itself having become a breakdown magnet as time marches on. As much as I love the old props, the simple fact is they were never meant to last this long, and entropy is really starting to make its presence known.

End of pointless ramble. Let's win Elisa—a statistics professor of all things—a car! (Surely, she knows the odds of rolling the car price outright are 2,375-1 against, but with ones and sixes in play those odds could come down dramatically...)

Only the tens digit is cause for genuine concern, though I worry the last digit could be 6. Fingers crossed, and...

Drew: "You get a necklace, you get a necklace, and you get a necklace! ...In your face, Oprah!"

I love Kimberly's T-shirt: "Hell yes, they're fake! The real ones tried to kill me!" Gotta keep your sense of humor about it...

PERHAPS, INDEED!

...no, still not saying anything...

...even though that was the second car game of the day...

...and Plinko is out of the running...

Under the circumstances I can't very well banish Raylene to Leftover Island in good conscience, even if she doesn't make it out of the Row this time. So she'll be spared the indignity of being whisked away to the Ohio River no matter what. I'll still have to count her as a leftover, though, and I don't want to have to do that, so hopefully Raylene can realize she's got the advantage on this last bid.

Bring on the dancing Reimus!


And what the heck, a Cyberman too!

We went years between perfectos, and now all of a sudden, we've had three in less than 365 days, starting with New Year's Eve and including the Fourth of July special. Could the tide finally be starting to turn away from outright evilness?

...Yeah, probably not. But hey! I'm certainly not gonna complain about it. Especially not on this particular episode!
