Gordon: Lets talk about something that's also chump
change considered to a million...A billion. Did anyone
see Pepsi's Play for a Billion? What did you think?
Alex: No, I didn't see that.
Alex: So I'll just listen.
Chico: I saw it.
Jason: Didn't see it, either. I HAVE a life, hello? :-p
Alex: I went to see a movie.
Jason: When the heck was that, anyway?
Chico: Sept. 12.
Gordon: Way to be reading our GSNN boards, Jason.
Jason: Sorry, but that was the weekend I missed out on,
with it being my 21st and all.
Chico: Oh! Happy belated, J :)
Gordon: So you can now play Super Pan 9 legally
Jason: .....yes...that's right! So far, I have lost $5
total to the PiR slots. I think I played that thing for
a couple hours. THAT is your video crack, right there
Gordon: Just as a personal note - the California casinos
policy in terms of making sure you are over 21 is..
shall we say...nonexistent.
Jason: ...I think that was pretty evident when you were
Gordon: Well, Chico, that leaves you and me. what did
Chico: I have a life.. and a DVR. Anyway, you have to
admire ABC for teaming a rookie with a veteran. Kinda
like the buddy cops of game showdom.
Gordon: I thought that it was fun, but not nearly as
good as last year, and ABC clearly cut costs on this.
Chico: They had to pay off Destiny's Child is what it
Gordon: Nonsense. They had more stars when it was on the
Alex: ABC might be the most idiotic network ever.
Jason: As an aside.... Recently, Disney's California
Adventure had their "ABC Preview Weekend" and it was....
terrible! WAY too much "extreme
Gordon: Well, this is ABC's way, isn't it - take a hit
show, ruin it into the ground and not worry about
creating new shows to foster it.
Alex: I am actually going to watch a show on the WB
this year... which is scary.
Jason: Which show would that be?
Alex: I am really looking forward to Green Screen In
Jason: Personally, I watch "7th Heaven" just coz I like
watching Bev Mitchell. :-p
Alex: I am a huge fan of Whose Line. So any show like
that, I'll be watching.
Jason: Same here.
Gordon: Green Screen is on when? Thursday at 9?
Jason: There's TV on Thursdays???
Gordon: Airing against Apprentice, CSI, Extreme
Makeover, Tru Calling and the WWE?
Gordon: Enjoy your two episodes of Green Screen before
is gets yanked after getting pummeled by everything else
on at the same time.
Chico: In any event, while we're on the subject of lame
decisions, we had TWO this week. 1) The Apprentice. Two
bad decisions there.
Gordon: Do tell.
Chico: First one was on the part of Bradford, who was a
lock for round 3... but chose to waive his immunity.
This is when his team lost, mind you. And he
was not supposed to be fired if that happened again.
Gordon: Agreed - that was an incredible stupid move on
Chico: He waives immunity and is taken to the board.
Gordon: and bad decision #2?
Chico: Never mind the fact that he now has guns for
days due to the fact that he was carrying his team on
his back for the past two weeks.
Gordon: Was he? I disagree with that.
Chico: Well, he did better than the other two that were
carried into the board room.
Gordon: I think he was going to carry them to doom in
the first episode until the team overruled him on the
toy. The car was a much better idea than the
football gig. I think his ego got in his way in both this
and the second episode.
Chico: #2 - Stacie and Ivana completely screwed the
pooch, but Bradford's cojones overrode any good he did,
as the Donald put him out of his misery.
Gordon: Do you think the Donald made the right choice?
Chico: Not by a freaking longshot. He just wanted the
Gordon: So you think the Donald made a bad decision.
Chico: By not going for the weakest link, yes.
Gordon: I completely disagree. I think the Donald made
the right choice. You have someone who is blowing off
both the group and the boss's authority, completely not
listening to his group - and then waiving off the rules.
You don't want someone like that running a business. I
think Trump did that for 2 reasons - 1. He knew he
wasn't going to hire him, so he figured to get rid of
him, and 2 - He sent a message to the team that that
sort of behavior will not be tolerated.
Chico: Sometimes going against the grain works.
Gordon: Going against the grain is good. Doing it by
setting the silo on fire is bad.
Chico: Well the way he was going about it, you'd think
otherwise. We'll see when the extra footage comes in.
Meanwhile, we go to second lame mistake of
the week. The Play-Op is revealed... as Boston Rob.
Gordon: Rob is the player operator - at least we know
where their budget went to now.
Chico: Dawn's dresses! But believe it or not, there
could've been other choices.
Gordon: I'm sensing a Big Board coming on...
Chico: You sense correctly.
Gordon: Light it up!
Chico: Today's topic: End of the Line. I'll explain
this for JD and Alex: on the game, there was a player
operator that basically acted as ...the Inquizitor... A
Charlie, if you will. This Big Board will explore what
would be different if there were other people on the
line. Feel free to jump in with suggestions.
Chico: Gordon, please begin..
Gordon: For example, if Ken Jennings was the Player
Operator - then you'd either have Computer Geeks or
Mormons as the contestants.
Chico: Personally, I've never heard a geek outside
myself say "spit mad game" before.
Gordon: It could be fun to see that - even worse than
Chico: WORSE?! How could it get any worse?
Gordon: My next PO could make it worse =)
Chico: Okay, I got one. Mark Thompson. The voice of Fox
could resound in a booming voice and have the players do
something incredibly stupid (and more than likely ripped
off from another show) for money.
Gordon: What about Phyllis Diller? Then we can have
dating for 80 year olds. The Bachelor - Octogenarian
Alex: I think I would literally scoop out of my
Chico: I stand corrected. That was worse.
Gordon: Would you like to dance - or would you rather
Josh: Depends whose face I'm sucking.
Gordon: Anyone have any other suggestions?
Chico: Ben Stein. He's got the cred, you know.
Gordon: A show with Smart Republicans...do we have
enough people to fill that show?
Alex: Get Kennedy then. Give me a reason to watch.
Chico: Of course!
Gordon: Who would she fill the show up with?
Chico: I'm sure she has female.. Republican...
Alex: I would hope so. Then lets put it on Pay Per
Gordon: The Player - Republican Lingerie Edition
featuring Kennedy! Brilliant!
Josh: I'd suck Kennedy's face.
Alex: Who wouldn't?
Chico: Or here's a switch-up. How about Gordon as the
Gordon: I am sick of the dopey Bachelor shows. Since no
one is looking for love anymore, let's throw a nasty
twist into the genre. I would make STEVE from
MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS FIANCE the player and then the game
would be to try to get eliminated from the show so that
you DON'T get married to him.
Chico: Seppuku is allowed, right?
Gordon: no - no Seppuku allowed.
Gordon: The person who is eliminated the last wins
$50,000 - and the person who he picks has to live with
Steve - forever!
Jason: .....maybe he's a good cook. :p
Chico: Go to commercial! GO TO COMMERCIAL!
(This commercial has been brought to you by MY BIG FAT
OBNOXIOUS BACHELOR - You DON'T want him to pick you!)
