I think it was sloppy regardles. Partly because of the inaccuracies in the game (unless it was a special show, in which case they would have said it was, there are not $100,000.00 games), and mostly because they were building it up so much and then it was just like three minutes of the episode. I realize they couldn't, like, do an entire episode of Price is Right (though how fun would it have been for the team to be running around behind the scenes of the episode trying to solve something?) but it felt like they were obligated to do it for some reason and got it over with in as little time as possible. And they could have thrown in some math and science - like showing Sly spinning the wheel and knowing just how much force to apply to the wheel based on the weight and circumference to spin the dollar, and stuff like that, but they didn't. Just boom, it's over.

Exactly. And really, since it was a fake episode anyway - they could have spent a lot more time on the episode - and as you said, have a case come up in the middle of it - either right there or someplace on the lot. Maybe even have cameos from a couple of other people on CBS shows. It would have been great fun.

I can so picture Sly beside the big wheel staring off into space while he's calculating, until Drew prompts him to spin the wheel already and Sly shushes him "I'm calculating the forces necessary...."

And he would tell Carey, "I was so quick on the other parts, you can give me an extra ten seconds now!"

When I first read that, I was wondering why Drew would be there. It took me way too long to realize you meant Drew Carey.

Yes - after his most recent failed attempt at a baseball career, Paige's ex - Drew - fills in as host on The Price is Right. Convenient and cost effective since they didn't need to get him a new name tag!

So that's why they had Sly go on The a Price Is Right! It wasn't a plug - they were just setting up next season's storyline!

OR someone launches an investigation into Sly's effortless success on the show (thinking maybe it was fixed or he cheated) and that carries on into the next season.

Oh gosh. I can just see an opening scene where Sly rushes into the garage waving a piece of paper and tells everyone it's from the Price is Right lawyers!

I love how in Ari's story he was like "wait is it doing the dog thing? I wanna be dogs! Are we dogs? I wanna do the dog thing!"

I can usually count on getting a smile or a giggle when I go through Ari's Instagram. Like this one:


But today I came across these two and just got all teary-eyed:

We never got an update on Sly's efforts to raise money to name that hospital wing after Megan. Did he just give up after his attempt at a lawsuit failed? Was the whole point of that just to work in a Price Is Right plug and introduce Heywood Jahelpme Morris? I'm really hoping there's some mention of this in the finale.
