More BUZZR Lost & Found coming 9/28 and 9/29
« on: September 03, 2018, 03:20:45 PM »
In addition to the exciting news about Classic Concentration, I got an email from their newsletter that also says:

I wonder if there will be anything particularly noteworthy or significant about the TTTT, IGAS, WML or Password they've decided to make a part of this.  I doubt He Said She Said or The Better Sex will be anything we haven't already seen, but certainly they're "lost" shows by Buzzr standards.  The other four, though, are extremely famous titles, and I'm not sure they qualify as 'lost' just because this particular version of them is making its way to Buzzr for the first time.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

If they want "lost", we should sell them our print of It's Your Move!

Is the full run of The Better Sex intact?  Seems that GSN had only shown a handful of episodes, and there are a couple of pilots out there, AFAIK.  I don't think I ever heard that most of the eps were gone.

If they wanted to really go "lost", anything "Reg Grundy not $ale of the Century" could fit.

We know the complicated case of Scrabble, and I would not be shocked if Scattergories is in a similar limbo given Hasbro's ownership of that board game. But Fremantle must still have the tapes of Time Machine, Hot Streak, and Small Talk somewhere, yes?

Those would all be great additions to the lineup. :) The only issue I can see with Time Machine is their extensive use of music clips.

Regarding Classic Concentration, maybe it's their "test" show?

I think it may just be the fact that they haven’t been seen anywhere on a regular basis in 18 years, and Concentration being last seen nearly 25 years ago. Most of the shows used during L&F are very familiar to us as huge fans, so it’s my best guess that their time off the air in those versions defines them as “lost”.

That's what I'm thinking too. It's one of the few G-T properties that hasn't seen a revival, and part of me wonders if it requires too much (wait for it) concentration from the audience at home, compared to 30 years ago.
Now celebrating his 16th season here on the GSF!

I know the last Lost & Found had some repeat pilots, etc. Were there any new pilots in the last event?

I'm curious to see what episodes they pull out for most of these. The Better Sex is definitely a surprise, in any case. :)

Right off the top of my head, Missing Links and Wordplay were definitely new.

[EDIT: Looking at my notes, those were the only ones, though It's News To Me kinda skirts the line.]

I'm having a feeling that these will be the Orville Reddenbacher and Richard Buggy episodes just based off if the infamy involved.

6PM: He Said, She Said #0141 (1970)
6:30: He Said, She Said #0177 (1970)

Might these be the episodes that Buzzr aired a couple of years ago?
