TPiRecap: 30 October 2014


Since tomorrow's going to be a repeat due to doctor's orders, I think I've come up with something a little unique and special for you guys. I'm not going to say what it is just now, except to hint that it's something that many of you have been wanting to see me do for a few years now.

But that's for later. We still have today to get through before all that fun stuff...

As we go to credits, Drew plugs tomorrow's Halloween Special... which isn't going to happen, I'm sorry to say, because that taping was cancelled due to Drew needing some minor work done on his neck. Those of you who wish to may tune in and watch an encore of the 2013 Halloween Spook-Tacular, which I covered last year in all its gory—er, glory.

  1. I was a bit surprised that the first Showcase on this episode used the Port O' Price music for its theme, while the 'Stang in the second Showcase used the Price is Right Train Depot's theme! Didn't see THAT coming!

  2. Found a better fit for the orange rat: Miss Peach from Clue: Master Detective.
    Buy hey, you're the one running the blog.
    Hope that surprise of yours tomorrow lives up to the hype; I need some cheering up after a persojal matter went south.
