It Was a Thing on TV Triple Header (Episodes #45-47): Rip Taylor in Time? Lost Games of “The Price is Right” & “Kids Guide to the Internet”

Break out your 28.8K Modems because Mike, Chico and Greg have a new trio of subjects to tackle with on It Was A Thing on TV. (Please note, the first subject was originally an April Fools Day joke.  98% of what you hear in that episode is fake.)

First, while “searching” for material on a previous episode, we “stumbled” upon information about a very brief BBC comedy from 1980 capitalizing off of the popularity of Doctor Who and The $1.98 Beauty Show.  Combine the two and you get a series in which nothing outside of blurbs of the episodes exists, Rip Taylor in Time.

Next, Pricing games on The Price is Right can be hit or miss.  You can have winners like Plinko, Rat Race, and Master Key.  You can also have misses like the dozen games we will cover in this installment.

Finally, Remember 1997, when the Internet was exciting, new, and informational?  We do, as do the Jamison family.  The Jamison kids share all the cool things you can do on the VHS cassette Kids Guide to the Internet.
