It was cute - they really had a lot of fun with it, on down to the presentation of prizes. There was a watch displayed on one of those wriggling dismembered hands, for example, and lots of spiders dropping in from above.
On front page for today. Full Episode. I’m guessing it won’t be there tommorow.
Yeah, the little touches were good. Same for the costumes. But it kinda got obvious after the second game tie in. Good use of Music cues to play stuff you know you know, but spruced up with the Organ.
Re Showcase : Yeah, I got the sense that the second contest tried to go for a 1 dollar or a XX1 bid, as the first bid was so bad. He knew what he did wrong a few seconds before Drew got to it. in a word, Hubris.
So, the second time, it had to be the person without the costume. But she sorta looks like Molly Shannon (and acts like her Catholic schoolgirl persona), so I give her a pass.
Now I’m through the first half. Is nobody going to win? People are even losing on the either-ors.
And the prices always go up on those games. Never pick a lower cost, even if you know you would actually pay less for those at the store.
Okay, so a guy actually won some money in Plinko. You know, the game that is totally random. At least he got one either-or right.
They went with the same amount. So it’ll just be whoever’s is worth the lowest amount. Definitely the trip. Come on, Derek. it was at least in the 5 digit range. I really wanted you to win since you actually get excited, but not if you’re going to be stupid. Unless he just didn’t want to win or something, since he’d already won Plinko. Surely no one on the show is that altruistic…
So, that’s my impression of the show. Better than the April Fools one (which is also on the front page). The gimmick actually worked this time.
