TPiRecap: 19 December 2014

In case you missed it, I actually did end up being able to get one up yesterday, despite my posting that I couldn't. Long story, short version, I was able to clear off just enough space later in the evening to get it done. (And yes, I was kinda shamed into doing it, but sometimes a boot in the hinder is what's needed, so thanks to GameShowLover for applying one. No hard feelings, eh?) ^^;

And so to today. Considering what today is (as ever, I'm typing up this intro before I actually sit down to watch the show), I wouldn't be surprised if Craig Ferguson and/or one of the Late Late Show cast of thousands somehow showed up today before their big send-off gala tonight...

SHE CHOSE... POORLY

And now I made myself want to see that movie again. Maybe I will once I'm done here. Anyway, I gravitated more towards the $19K price myself, so I've got little grounds for complaint.

Lots of potential ringers in this mix... good luck, Daniel. I'd stay off the iced tea and the beef jerky, myself, if it were up to me.

Jacob's bid isn't actually his fault, but rather that of an overzealous staff. Unfortunately, the way the current software is designed, a bid cannot be changed once it's been entered (a rather serious drawback vice the old Sportstype displays), so although Jacob really wanted to bid $2,000 at the end, he was stuck with that opening salvo... Price has been forced by technology to adopt that old standard of the game show world, the "We Have to Take Your First Answer" rule. Drew thus admonishes everyone "You've got to be careful with your bids..."

But then again, when Sonia's bid is going up, it does change (due to apparent operator error) from "112-" to what she actually bid. Does this mean the bid isn't locked in until we hear the ding? Or what does it mean? I think we need a clarification as to exactly what's going on around here.

An unusual camera angle (roughly from the area of the old production table) follows a cartwheeling Lisa up on stage, which gives us a peek at Pick-a-Number before it's revealed from behind the Giant Price Tag:

...Actually, make that Not-So-Easy Mode. It could believably be any of the three, even the one with the trebled 5. My gut, however, says 6, and apparently so does Lisa's...

...Would you believe, that's actually our first win in this game on our sixth try, even after several of those playing have been in so-called "Easy Mode?"

On a quick housekeeping note before I wrap up, I expect to to take Friday off next week for the purposes of Christmas, but will be back in the saddle come the following Monday. With that said, I may yet decide to do a quick one next Friday if I get time. All I can suggest is checking in throughout the afternoon and evening of the 26th... either you'll see one or you won't. ^^;

Other than that, have a great weekend, stay tuned for stats, and we're back on Monday!

  1. once again, only one car PG win this week.(dice game)
    and Car push over winning streak is over(and first drew carey era, 12 car playing).
    at least pick-a-number is first win of S43.

    this week is also nothing special, IMO.
