TPiRecap: 5 February 2015


As I mentioned last night/early this morning on GSP, I belatedly realized that I just passed the eight-year anniversary of doing these TPiRecaps, in one form or another. I started doing this back around the begininng of February in 2007, intending really to simply cover the last few months of the Barker Regime after thirty-five years, but then it just became a habit... especially after I discovered there were people who would not only read what I had to say about the quintessential American game show, they actually enjoyed it.

I really don't want to dwell too much on this for fear of patting myself on the back too much (you can break an arm that way), but I just wanted to take a moment here to thank everyone out there who's stuck with me all this time, from the old GSN forums to this standalone blog to the various trials and tribulations I've had over the years (DVR follies, illnesses, even a near-nervous breakdown that kept me away for the better part of Season 38). I can only hope it's been as much fun for you guys as it's been for me. 8^)

And with that out of the way... [cracks whip on self] Back to work, slacker!

Rachel: "She [Amber] is gonna kill me!"
Drew: "No, no, women love when that happens... I know women, and one thing I know about women is they don't care about that kind of thing at all!"

Great. Just what this show needed... another model controversy. XD

Drew hit the first button and they both flipped over. This is gonna be one of those days, isn't it? Anyway, they just keep going as normal; might as well, since it's never gonna be the first price.

Falling pictures, "feuding" models, fritzy props, and frustrating losses... and we're not even to the first commercial break yet. Must be Thursday in the BBS.
