New Section Added to the Site

Y’know how there’s a section called Vintage Reviews? Well, I decided to add another section called First Impressions (keep in mind that the site DOES say Music, Movies, Games and More; most of this site’s on gameshows). This section is to express any thoughts on anything that’s new (aside from new episodes of game shows) or you’re experiencing this for the first time. Here’s a couple of posts that I’ll be doing on this section for now:

My dad’s 2017 Mercedes-Benz C300.

NordicTrack C700 treadmill.

As for entertainment, I’ll do one for the season 2 premiere of Amphibia (season 1’s on Disney+ if you wanna catch up) w/ the episodes “Handy Anne” & “Fort in the Road” (7/11 at 8:20 PM ET on Disney Channel). I’ll also do one for Close Enough if I can successfully convince my dad to get HBO Max (That show’s created by Regular Show’s J.G. Quintel. Based on the trailers, this show looks like it’s right up my alley.).


Reminder on the Remaining LMAD Air Dates & The Future of TPIR

Here’s a reminder on the remaining LMAD air dates:

  • Tuesday, June 16
  • Friday, June 19
  • Wednesday, June 24
  • Friday, July 10
  • Monday, July 13
  • Dealy Awards episode on a date yet to be determined (this might go to waste)

The stats of these remaining six shows will be added together for the final season stats. We will NOT be doing any weekly stats anytime between these air dates.


As for TPIR, the current season has most likely been wrapped up. One more episode was listed to air on July 6th on the official TPIR schedule, but we weren’t sure since we were convinced that 6/2 was the finale. But after taking a closer look at it, the episode in question was the preempted 12/9 episode that aired on 3/20, & the official TPIR site mistakenly listed it to air on 7/6 & not 3/20. But then it was changed to the 3/17 episode which was never aired on some markets. My local listings show the 1/20 episode airing on 7/6, and it was mistakenly labeled as “New.” BEST/WORST Moments of S48 of TPIR coming July 6th.

One more reminder, no TPIR 4th of July special will happen this year due to COVID-19.

Contestant of the Week for September 21-25, 2020

Theo of Press Your Luck is your Contestant of the Week. Making a comeback on the revival 36 years after his appearance on the original show, he won $167,837 before even going to the Bonus Round. Unfortunately, he didn’t have too much luck in the Bonus Round, but he did manage to salvage the $6K helicopter lessons out of it for a final total of $173,837 cash & prizes. Bobbymgsk gave Antwan a shoutout…

“(I can hear ant0824 right now saying “Who needs $47,250 when you have $167,837?”)”

Honorable Mentions: Brandon is the 15th winner of America’s got Talent; CJ made a good choice signing the contract on The Wall; Dana is Player of the Week on Jeopardy! going on a 2-day run w/ $44,800 plus the $1K 3rd place consolation.

Please give a warm welcome to…

…MythMan88 as newbie & our newest member of the team!!

I know he came from nowhere, and I will not disclose his real full name, but I had an email conversation with him and he seemed like an interesting guy. And like us he’s into game shows. He will help with the editing around here when I’m not here and he will also help with keeping these trolls at bay.

Welcome, MythMan88!!
