Ahh, so it is Tripa S's (sp?) birthday is it? Well, happy B-day to ya. Speaking of SSS, my favorite memory of him is the time he used Press Your Luck as his sig...now that was great. I wonder if Shane has seen the new Press Your Luck and has any reaction to the new game. But I guess I can ask that on a day that SSS isn't getting blitzed off of Smirnoff Ice and Skyy Blue :-)

Bah, the new Press Your Luck isn't anywhere near as good as the original. It's much more against the contestant. Too many friggin whammies on the board. And prizes that are worth $100 in the SECOND round? There shouldn't be anything under $1000 in the second round.
And what the hell is up with that "gem" shit? You have to land on a square in the first round, then land on another in the second round, and win the game, without landing on ANY whammies, and you win this ugly piece of crap that just barely resembles a car?
Double Whammies? Ugh. If I wanted to see people get stuff dumped on their head, I'd watch Nickelodeon(shut up, I know what my avatar is. ) And they repeat too damn often, both the regular whammy animations and the doubles.
Plus, why the hell don't they have returning champions? I mean, that just BEGS for people to make stupid strategic moves, because they know they won't have another chance to win stuff. Did you see that episode where the woman won a $500 fridge, and that's it? Yeah, I'm sure she was thrilled. I'm not saying there aren't some good episodes, like tonight's, it was a good one, but, then again, there's crap ones as well. Overall, I'd probably give it a 6/10.
On a side note, having talked with a couple of people on my dorm room floor, we have now conspired to blast this from 9:01 AM to 8:59 PM (when quiet hours aren't in effect) during an exam study day. No word on if we'll make it out alive.
