SUPER PAY CARDS! (1981-82) [7 episodes]
Decent Concentration-Poker combo, but something seems to be missing...maybe because it ran decades before Poker became insanely popular to have on television?
NOTE: All but D-31.7 feature an Audience Game (required by CanCon laws, but edited out of US airings) using the eight-card portion of the Bonus Round.
Yellow payoff table, white superimposed credits (over the set)
* September 22, 1981: Mark vs. Ann Marie. Round 2: Four of a Kind. Very good episode! [D-31.7/OB, Channel 5]
* 1981: Darnley vs. Fran. Round 2: Two-Three-Four-Five. Audience Game Prize: flash camera. Has a local promo for The Price Is Right, bad-but-watchable video, but highly-recommended! [D-31.5/OB?, CHCH-11 {Hamilton, Ontario, Canada}]]
Yellow payoff table, regular credits
* 1981: Mitchell (total moron) vs. Helen. Round 2: Strategy. Audience Game is played with TWO people! Has a local promo for The Price Is Right, ends during credits. [D-31.6/OB?, CHCH-11]
Blue payoff table, regular credits
* 1981: David vs. Blossom. Round 2: Four of a Kind. Audience Game Prize: automatic can opener and knife sharpener. Audio/video slightly off, latter is bright at times. [D-31.3/OB]
* 1981: Lennard vs. Gail. Round 2: Strategy. Audience Game Prize: popcorn popper. Audio/video slightly off, ends during credits. [D-31.4/OB, CHCH-11]
* 1981: Martin vs. Jeannette. Round 2: Two-Three-Four-Five. Audience Game Prize: automatic can opener and knife sharpener. HORRIBLE episode where Round 3's rendered pointless! [D-31.2/OB?]
* 1981: Brian vs. Doreen. Round 2: Strategy. Audience Game Prize: fire escape ladder. [D-31.1/OB?, CHCH-11]

PEOPLE ARE FUNNY (Art Linkletter, 1954-60) [1 episode]
Variety's nice, but like America's Got Talent I want to put a question mark at the end.
* July 6, 1957: A boy tries to borrow $1 from a friend over the phone; a couple who met via UNIVAC two or three weeks ago try to win $5,000 via an anagram; a young lady must guess which person of three is a silent-film star (Taylor Holmes) for $500. Original commercials. [D-28.1/KIN]

POWER OF 10 [3 episodes]
Mix of Play the Percentages, Card Sharks, and Family Feud, with a top prize of $10,000,000. Drew Carey is pretty good here.
Season One (August-September 2007, twice-weekly)
* August 15, 2007: Kathleen at $1,000, then Eric vs. Mandy. Has a very funny FEMA-related song before Elimination Game #2! Original commercials, highly recommended! [38.5/OB, WPEC-12 {West Palm Beach, Florida}]
* August 22, 2007: Dewey at $100,000, then Will vs. Julie. Original commercials. [39.3/OB, WPEC-12]
Season Two (January 2008, weekly)
* January 2, 2008 (Season Premiere/6th-to-last): Begins with Tony vs. Grinol. Fifth question insults Drew, and the third contestant CRASHES AND BURNS! Original commercials. [54.10/OB, WPEC-12]

PRESS YOUR LUCK (1983-86) [7 episodes]
Classic game that was awesome all-around until CBS moved it to 4:00 PM. The late-1983 shows are in the current Buzzr package, but these are OB copies. :)
* September 19, 1983 (Premiere, taped 9/10/83): Lana vs. Linda vs. Phil. An exciting beginning to a fantastic series! Some original commercials, first few seconds missing, ends during credits. [D-21.3/OB, KPIX-5 {San Francisco, California}]
* September 22, 1983 (taped 9/83): Jim vs. Robert (Day 2 - $4,598) vs. Terri. Original commercials and a Contestant Plug, ends during credits. [D-21.4/OB, WCBS-2 {New York City, New York}]
* September 23, 1983 (taped 9/83): Dave vs. Shirley vs. Robert. Peter stops at a Whammy in his demo spin! Original commercials. [D-21.5/OB, WCBS-2]
* September 27, 1983 (taped 9/16/83): Debby vs. Maggie vs. Harold. Peter stops at a Whammy in his demo spin! Original commercials, ends during credits. [D-21.6/OB, WCBS-2]
* September 28, 1983 (taped 9/83): Donna vs. Rocco vs. Maggie. First day with the second set of boards! Original commercials, ends slightly after credits. [D-21.7/OB, WCBS-2]
* September 29, 1983 (taped 9/83): RANDY WEST vs. Pam vs. Maggie. NO Whammies hit in Round 1! Original commercials and a Ticket/Contestant Plug, ends late in credits. [D-21.8/OB, WCBS-2]
* September 30, 1983 (taped 9/83): RANDY WEST vs. Kathy vs. Alan. Peter stops at a Whammy in his demo spin, plus there's a CAR WIN! Original commercials, including a Press Your Luck promo! [D-21.9/OB, WCBS-2]

WHAMMY! THE ALL-NEW PRESS YOUR LUCK (2002-03) [1 episode]
Ran for 26 weeks and has its fans (plus the changes were pretty smooth compared to some other revivals), it mainly suffers from a lack of returning champs. Season 2 episodes are more easily recommended.
Season Two (2003)
* March 20, 2003 (#2012 {77th overall, 70th aired}): Aaron vs. Eric vs. Taline. $17,785 BIG BANK BROKEN! Original commercials, hissing-type sound throughout (but very watchable). [34.2/OB]
