Although I\'m with the resident Sale guru here...

 


I am a devoted fan, yes. I am not a guru by any means. I never worked on the show or have been a part of it. I wish.

Would \"afficionado\" work? Or is it still laying it on a little thick?

Still does. He\'s a true master at it now.


 


Side Thought: Am I the only one who liked the remixed theme Sale used late in the run? The old one is good, but I like the \"smooth\" vibe the later one had.

Personally, I like the first theme the best.  Compared to the first theme, the last season theme just.... lost something.  That\'s about the best way I can put it.

The remix sounded more like mall muzak. The only thing I liked was the new \"go to bonus\" cue, which was pretty sweet.

I always enjoyed the cue they played when sending the two losing contestants off....

I didn\'t care so much about the music package for the instant bargains, but the theme, send off, and bonus music was tops. I remembered the first time I saw \"Sale\" in 91 with that music, and I prefer that over the first theme (although I liked that theme too).

Same here. It made for a nice transition from the bombastic win cue. I do wish more cues from the show existed, including the full theme with piano breakdown.

Now if the second theme existed in the clear (I THINK it started when the WBMG debuted?), that\'d be sweet

Definitely agreed. Not that there was anything shrill about the original mix, but I think the \"smoothness\" of the later version was an improvement. Jim Perry\'s hair looked a little smoother around that time, too.


 


On another note, I\'m wondering how much does the fact that GSN is picking up a sliver of the final season lend credibility to the notion that the bulk of the network run is \"lost.\" It does seem unusual for them to start near the end and at a point that is not the show\'s prime.

Have they done that in the past when they acquired new-to-GSN classics? Started at a point that wasn\'t such-and-such show\'s prime?

Off the top of my head Love Connection. It was from the final or penultimate season. I\'m sure it happened a lot.

So apparently GSN IS going to air the final 13 weeks....better than nothing, yeah, but I gotta figure the casual viewer seeing these eps for the first time might be disappointed to see an advertised $50,000 top prize and a car that no regular contestant will win in those 65 eps.


 


Doubt it\'ll make a difference in the long run, but just making a point.

U-Verse\'s listing for SotC lists the hosts as \"Jack Kelly, Jim Perry, Rossi Morreale.\"  What, no love for Joe Garagiola (excuse me...Joe Garagiola, Sr)?
