either way, it has been on the air for 50! years, I can't believe they haven't heard of it.

It was a morning ritual for my g-ma. Some of my fondest memories when I moved stateside were watching the show with her, back when Bob was a dark haired playboy. It was one her favorite shows in the US, and LONG before the days of reality based tv, it was about as close as it got.

Oh no! We don't get tv now but it's always been one of my favorite shows. I love shouting the answers at the tv. Most of the prizes are pretty lame but it's fun to play the games in your own home. I wonder how many smooches on the cheek he's gotten over the years...

You need to think about the happy times you had talking to your father!!!!! Look on the bright side. Of course you miss him - but what a great memory!

I remember when I was little, my sister and I would watch the show when we were stuck at home during summer vacations. I would always play along, wondering what I would bid or do if I was on the show. I always dreamed of being able to play plinko. That was my favorite. It sad to see Bob Barker go. I wonder if the show will succeed without him.

It's funny, I feel like so many people liked plinko, and yet they only played it on the show every once in awhile. When ever plinko would come up on the show, everyone would get really excited. Probably what made it so popular was that it was rarely played.
I use to imagine where on the board that I would put the chip. It's the one game I would like to play the most.

Ah...those were the days. Summer vacations spent watching Price is Right and soap operas.
