Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I was just thinking about:

Let's Make A Deal, with Monty Hall. I really liked that show back in the day. Apparantly when the show first started, the audience didn't dress in costumes. I was told that one guy showed up in a costume one day, so he'd get noticed and be picked as a contestant. It worked for the guy, and after that everyone started dressing up, and it became standard. It was cutting-edge for its time. I wonder if Monty's still with us..

I believe Monte is still around. There is a new Lets Make a Deal on morning TV, I think, with Wayne Brady as host.

My favorite line: "Or, do you want the box where Carol Merrill is standing..."

I snorted out loud at Blast's comment. I had a thing for Carol when I was young...

I just had a flashback of being in college and watching reruns of LMAD on the Game Show Network.

Hopefully, I can find some clips online to watch.

Wings: I saw pics of the new one with Wayne when I did the image search. They're trying, but you can't bring it back. It'll never be the same.

Blast and Dad: I'm afraid I don't remember the chicks in front of the curtains. I, however, will always remember the "Price Is Right" chicks. Not their names, but, well, you know...

Miss Hairball: If I wasn't on dial-up, I might check them out too.

I agree - the remakes are never the same. I think it's because it's not "the good old days"...

Yes. Times change and we've evolved as a society. Unfortunately those days are long behind us.
