One of these games shows extravagance to the point of flaunting, so big it was impossible to price, and led to a boring playing, only exciting out of nerves than anything else. You can’t manufacture excitement by sticking in shit. Hell, even yesterday’s Rent wasn’t really that exciting.
Another game shows how GOOD CONTESTANTS MANUFACTURE PROPER EXCITEMENT FOR YOU, NO FERRARIS REQUIRED, JUST YOUR REGULAR OLD CAR.
EDIT: Rant time:
This is exactly why Golden Road has had the very high end cars and never 3 Strikes. The 1st digit just becomes that much more of a problem as you get into 80k, 90k, never mind freakin’ 280k. Whoever skipped over Golden Road, where the price of the big prize is emphasized super highly anyways, is brain-dead.
And again even then, 280k?? The previous highest was $112,845, 4 years ago. Holy crap, let’s keep it maybe to 150k max or something.
I really hope the show somehow survives enough to have another producer in charge and see if anything changes. One thing I’m aware of is that it may have been Drew who spawned all these insane amounts, based on a video chat a few months ago, and that CBS firing Roger may have been their move to finally get more control over the show that they wanted but couldn’t do before. So even with Mike Richards out, the show may (probably) be permanently past the hill.
It’s just infuriating when the good magic is on display like in this Let ’Em Roll, or even 3X a month ago, and they just don’t get it. And maybe most of the current viewers nowadays don’t get it either, and it’s just going to be a messy divorce for me and other hardcore fans. I dunno...
Here is the 2nd of the Price is Right’s 1986 nighttime specials!
Lucky $even (first-ever playing with 5-digit cars and its new set; but keep an eye out for a blooper!)
