TPiR Retro Quickcap: 2/3/1983

Since Wheel was a bad one tonight, here is tonight’s dishonorable mention.

First Four (Most of the contestants’ last names were not picked up on): Andrea, Willie, Vali and Fran
GOLDEN ROAD: Vali (by default; $670) walked into a TOTAL TRAINWRECK (Prizes gone to waste: Antiacid, color TV, sailboat, Ford LTD)

Next conestant: Audrey McCann
Blank Check (now Check Game): Willie ($682) cashed in for the Lowrey ‘Mardi Gras’ Organ (GT: $3,777)

Coming next: Bradford
Hi Lo: Andrea ($974) went out of order and out of tune to miss out on the jukebox

SCSD #1 Winner: Vali


Next: Sara
Unbelievable. We had TWO ALL-OVERBIDS on the rug.
Double Prices: Audrey ($450 + $100 PB) scored double for the Carousel Horse Hall Tree (GT: $2,800)

Next up: Barbara
Cliff Hangers: Barbara ($418) survived for the new kitchen (GT: $2,884)

Last call: Regina
Money Game (Friday came a day early…): Bradford ($1,030) brought in the green, the Ford Futura Fairmont coupe and perfect second half (GT: $8,676)

Off to the FFBC: Fran

SCSD #2 Winner: Barbara (via Spin-Off)


Showcase Winner: Vali ($6,921)


My Rating: 5 (D-)

Skipps’ Rating: 4 (F+) (Golden Road wipeout + double all-overbid for one item + low showcase win equals a not-great episode despite the perfect second half)


Golden Road sent us on a really rocky road.


Golden Road trainwreck, double all-overbid and low showcase win really did this show in.
