To me, one of the best Pyramid moments was the 43-42 game between Sandy Duncan and Nipsey Russell from (I think) 1978.

That is why I favor the '70s version......For those seemingly endless tie games. The 1980's version is anti-climactic in their tie games, but I realize why they made that change (to move things along faster).

I love the '70's episodes too because they had a lot of good celebs from shows that I've seen in reruns growing up. I was so glad to see them play the game, and a good number of those celebrities were pretty good back then too!

I always thought it was more exciting to see the first team set a fast time in the tiebreaker, and the second team beat that time.

Oh! Speaking of tie-breaker rounds, the one in 1983 with Michael J. Fox and Denise Miller. Michael and his partner won that round and the Winner's Circle!

Come on Chris!  How could you forget!  Michael had on this super nice looking red cardigan, and Dick commented that he "looked great today".

One show during that week WAS notable in that there were four tiebreaker rounds in one show(three in one round, one in the other)

The $25,000 Pyramid:
-('80's) Tom Poston and his civilian partner get ZERO dollars in the winner's circle. (The same thing happened with Flex Alexander in 2003 on Osmond's version.)

All I remember that week were Denise Miller's stage entrances. (Was she even wearing a bra that week?)

(sigh) Was this Michael J. Fox tiebreaker, by any chance, the one where both teams got only 6 points in 30 seconds? The second tiebreaker in which the second team got the last item right on the buzzer, and they went to a commercial? Came back from the commercial to announce that they would play a third tiebreaker? That one?

Okay, okay... I might have overexaggerated that a little, only due to the fact that when the Duncan-Russell tie breaker was brought up, it had just come to me then and I thought it was a valid moment.  Not the most memorable, but just a memorable one.

If you had explained why it was memorable, no one would have teased you. You're right. It certainly fits.

No, I'm sorry. There are moments on Pyramid that I remember. Tiebreakers aren't among them. There were a LOT of tiebreakers, many of them well-played.

Well, how many times are there three tie-breakers played to determine the winner of one game?

If that's not memorable to you, that's fine. To each his own. I, however, think that there are some people who would find that at least a little bit memorable.

Without question, the most significant Pyramid moment ever was when ABC decided to take a chance on the show that CBS dumped after only a year.  Without that, the show might not have evolved into a classic and it might be remembered today as just another clever Bob Stewart show that never got off the ground.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
