Seems like they should have timed the first game as well in case something like this happens.

An interesting occurrence on the 4/24 show:

During the money game, a prize was inadvertently revealed. On his next attempt, the same contestant matched it and was awarded it, at which point Jack said they would stop tape and move the prizes around a bit before resuming. After the edit, the prize was gone from the contestant's side of the board, the spaces he'd just matched had been turned back to numbers, and the prizes under some of the numbers had been shuffled. During the closing credits, Johnny mentioned the edit also. It was strange that they didn't edit out the match that was rescinded, though./spoiler]

Has anyone else noticed the picture occasionally going out of focus on these episodes? I noticed it on the 4/28 episode as well as an earlier one.

You mean how, for the entire episode, the picture alternates approximately every one second between something that resembles an interlaced image and a deinterlaced image?

Yes.

Yes.
Some of these episodes have made me feel very slightly physically ill because of this issue, but I soldier on

Same here. Yes, it kind of bugs me....probably not as much as it should, with me working in something that resembles the video business.

Maybe there were slight issues with the master tapes when they were digitizing the episodes or something...

yes:

Having watched the broadcast, the website feed, and now this, I'm curious what's causing all of the interpolation?

There must have been some sort of offstage signal for Jack indicating the puzzle had been solved, or else he was briefed on it before the show started (which seems less likely). He obviously doesn't have a card showing the answer to the main game puzzles (which would be very easy for contestants to catch a glimpse); I'm kind of surprised he does have them for the Double Play round.


There was one show this week, I believe it was Tuesday nights episode, where at one point they cut to the contestants and Jack, and you could see him putting a pice of paper into the breast pocket of his suit.  I assumed he was refreshing himself on the puzzle answer.
As a matter of fact, on the 5/6 episode, Jack specifically indicated that the had the answer in that pocket.

For a variety of reasons, I think tonight's episode is my favorite of the Buzzr batch.
