View Full Version : What did you think of TPIR's 30th anniversary?

I thought it was ooook.....but, it couldve been SOOOOO MUCH BETTER! I was expecting like some of the OLD games that they took away, like the Phone-a-friend (somethin like that) in the 80s. But, it was basically just the Normal Price is Right, with the same games, but slightly better prizes. but, I think it couldve been much better

My overal grade....B+ I love Price is Right and it was certanly a lot of fun celebrating the 30 years. Great win in Triple Play to start it off! I wanted her to win the showcase because she could have accumulated close to $100,000! (The 3 cars in Triple Play and the Corvette in the Showcase) Her showcase was over $78,0000! (I played along and bid $70,000!) I was over in the guy's showcase (The moterhome and the other stuff was like $48,000) I would have said $55,000 I thought he bid low for an anniversery special show but he won so that was cool!
Guy was stupid in One Away when he had to change the 3 numbers when he had 2 right. He had the last number a 0 and he changed it to a 2! (Stupid, Stupid, Stupid!) In most cases, car prices are going to end in 5, 0, or sometimes 9. and when changed it I yelled "NO!" (Although sometimes in Money Game or Cover Up a car price will end in a bizzare number so maybe his strategy wasn't that bad!)
My reason for the B+ grade instead of A is, what the hell are rinky dinky Squeeze Play and One Right Price doing on an anniversery special??? DUH! Those are the cheesiest games. I was expecting Golden Road or Punch Board, or even 3 Strikes with like a $40,000+ car. And damn! No Pass The Buck or Let 'Em Roll!? All the games should have big prizes for a big anniversery show like that)
It was very very good but they could have had 2 more BIG prize/payoff games!
I also find it somewhat annoying that the first showcases are almost always cheesy compared to the second showcase...75% of the time, if you are the top winner, you should pass the first showcase. (Unless it's a car or something) but the second showcase is almost always better. The showcase values where $48,000 for the boat and other stuff and the other one was like $78,000 for the corvette. That's a $30,000 difference and for an anniversery show, the showcase values should be more equal especially for something that people have waited so long to see!

I also thought it could have been better. Every player should have had an opportunity to win a car. That in itself would have made the show more memorable and exciting to watch. I know the trend is to select young college age contestants, but did anyone notice that no "old" contestants (save for the older blonde woman) were chosen? I suppose they didn't want to run out of time waiting for them to come on down. LOL

I thought there wasn't too terribly much difference between
the anniversary and the regular shows except the chorus girls
at Bob's entrance during the opener and here and there they
had a few clips from the past.

I couldn't tell you: I missed it & have been wanting to see that in the worst way! I used to live in Las Vegas......now I'm homesick that I left.

I think they probably played games that would be easy to take to Vegas. Some of them would be hard to transport, such as 3 strikes. I don't know how big the board really is, but it looks big and heavy on TV!

The special from Las Vegas was amazing. I love the games & the host. I hope the show lives forever.:happyface

The 25th anniversary special was much better. It had more clips of past episodes, including the infamous "tube top" incident. They showed a clip of a large black woman chasing Bob around the stage after she won $10,000, various clips of contestants picking him up like a child, people running up onstage after being called to come on down, ridiculously high bids, and some clips of Janice Pennington way back when as well as the late Johnny Olsen.
