Since I didn't see a thread about it for the past week, I thought I should just post it myself. Who here watched the "Big Bucks: The Press Your Luck Scandal" documentary last weekend? If you haven't just yet, don't fear. Game Show Network will reair it tomorrow night at 9 P.M. Eastern/6 P.M. Pacific and Midnight Eastern/9 P.M. Pacific. Now my take: BIG BUCKS: THE PRESS YOUR LUCK SCANDEL **** out of **** I must say right off the bat that if you love or did love "Press Your Luck", I require you to watch this documentary to see the truth of how Michael Larson cracked the code and won $110,237 on May 19, 1984. When USA aired reruns of this show when I was four years old, I watched them every weekday and I was hooked on the show. At the time, I had no reason to ever suspect that some guy could ever win $110,237 in a single day. That was, until about a year ago. That was when "Press Your Luck" got revived by being shown on the Game Show Network. I tuned in a lot to remember what I most likely forgot. One day, whlie browsing the Internet, I came across a fan site for the show and found out about Michael Larson and how he walked away with $110,237. I read that the episodes had never been seen with the exception of their air date. It was at that point that sometime, I would need to see those episodes. I gave up for a while, that is until I heard about the documentary that aired last weekend and boy, was I surprised... The documentary not only shows the "infamous" episodes, but goes into details about how Michael Larson cracked the code, got on the show, and at the end of each act, describes how Michael Larson planned his startegy on how to win the game. But that's not all. You'll also see how Michael Larson lost all his money and a brief glimpse of his life after he won the money, how the CBS execs intially refused to pay him the money, and you will also see his two opponents play a reworked "Press Your Luck" board that looks almost exactly as I remember it from the show, using Michael Larson' strategy (To find out that strategy, you must tune in to the doc). Although this a two hour documentary with commercials, I must tell you that the documentary really only runs 83 minutes without them, but everything I mentioned plus a little more is crammed into that time. If you haven't seen this documentary and have Game Show Network, I urge you to see this documentary because it is very interesting. If you don't have Game Show Network, I urge you to find somebody who does and tape this doc because it is definately one of the best. Now, if only the E! True Hollywood Story did a documentary about the whole show, then I would be really satisfied. However, I was disappointed with just one miner thing. That is the fact that the episodes weren't shown in their entirety, but I can let that slide. Still, don't miss this documentary. I can't wait to see what Game Show Network does for an encore here.
