Sure, a board full of game show geeks (I use the term inclusively & affectionately) like this is going to discuss and/or poke fun at nearly every aspect of the show, the extracurriculars included.

...which is all he needs. Mr. Abell was disinvited from the proceedings long ago for jackbaggery of this nature and has carried a grudge ever since.

Really not sure how he drew that conclusion.

He's a goof.  It's what he does.

Caught the holiday-week episode over the weekend where after the 1st game (Most Expensive), Bob talked to his Beauties and asked each of them what they wanted for Christmas.  When Bob asked Diane, she blushed and said she couldn't say what she wanted on air.

In hindsight, you wonder.....

Pluto's made a slight update, in that you no longer have to wonder or search airdate calendars to figure out what episode is airing. The episode numbers are now included in Pluto's guide listings.

According to their Instagram page, a week from tomorrow:
---
On Tuesday 2/2 at 10am (EST), we will add 30 new episodes from 1983 in chronological order based on their original airdates. We will continue to expand the schedule throughout the month, until we have 200 episodes in rotation.

Take your pick on this one...

During the Showcase Showdown, Bob asks what the three contestants would do with $11K. First woman says she would buy a house. Bob being Bob, he deflates that dream by telling her that wonít buy much of a house. Second woman says sheíd have a baby, to which Bob tells her thatís not that works. Anyway, she got 50 cents, to which Bob says she can get a dog*.

Fast forward to the Showcases. Newlywed woman debates whether to keep hers and looks to the husband in the audience. She passes and Bob basically said if she keeps listening to her husband, her marriage will be very successful. When a few women boo, he notes that he didnít see a man next to them.

The woman makes her bid, and Bob asks if she came up with that on her own. Again, take your pick.

Got a pair of Roku TVs for Christmas (one for the family room, one for my bedroom), so I've caught some of the TPiR channel from time to time. Fun throwback to childhood sick days and summers.

-- Pre-Plinko, I would have to say Super Ball was my favorite game as a child. I understand why the game was eased out, but it was simply cool, as an eight-year-old, to see a childhood arcade staple being played on a game show (also liked the camera work on this game, particularly the closeup of the contestant preparing to roll with the audience behind them).

-- TPiR had a great deal of iconic music composed by Edd Kalehoff/Score Productions during this period, so I was surprised to hear the show use Herb Alpert's "Route 101" as the "Better Showcase" music a few times. Curious how long TPiR had that song in the rotation, and if they ever used other Alpert-composed music.

Another interesting non-Kalehoff recurring music cue is the one that's played in the Mime showcases where Holly plays the mime.  It is a variant of an "Odd Couple" underscore.  Anyone know what that tune is?

"Route 101" was used on the show as late as 1990, since it was used when plugging that year's Home Viewer Showcase.

So, how are these shows being aired now? Is it 6 per day in order, a constant loop with 24 episodes per day, or are they all shuffled with no respect to chronological order? I flipped it on last night and got an '82 episode promoting the Home Viewer Showcase.
