The Price is Right CBS HD

I didn't search the forum to see if there was already a thread....

Time to pay homage to the Greatest Gameshow of All Time!

I recognize that not everyone "gets it".

A big part of it for some of us is simple nostalgia- watching TPIR since the 70's during summer vacations or school sick days/holidays.

Something about seeing a show unchanged (recent set style/color updates and Barker retiring notwithstanding) since your childhood- TPIR is careful about preserving their "Carnival" game pieces unchanged, like Holy Relics- Cliffhanger, Hole In One, BullsEye, Plinko, Lucky 7, etc.

I have often proclaimed that TPIR encapsulates everything about American/capitalist culture (good or bad) in one show. If a foreigner needs to get up to speed about American culture quickly, tell them to watch a week of TPIR

It remains one of the only regular gameshows that takes unprepared people off the street to play, unprepped & undressed beforehand like the Jeopardy's, Wof"s, and FF's of the world.

Pony up your props and memories of TPIR...

You do know most countries have their own versions of TPIR, don't you? Sure, many games are different, but the concept is the same.

I meant "not formally dressed". Street clothes, since contestants are picked from the audience that day

A technical side note to TPIR: The cameras are wireless - no camera cables. Also RIP Ed Greene.
