Perhaps there should be The Best of The Night Time Price is Right with Dennis James and Tom Kennedy is a suggestion. That is why I think it should happen because I am a big Dennis James fan.

it was not as interesting as I was hoping it would be...it provided a really extensive history of the show, it had a few funny things but still good for the die hard fan

HASH(0x9f61fba0) out of 5 stars The real dirt on why some people and things are missing Oct. 19 2009
By Michael Ceciliani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Being a game show fan. I bought this set at Best Buy soon after its release. I had read about what would be on the set, so I wasn't as disappointed with some of the models and decades not being included. I also know why they weren't included, since I read and post regularly on a few web sites. For those not in the know, I'll share:

Very first show is not included - because the very first item up for bids (IUFB) was a FUR COAT. Bob Barker has since become an animal rights activist and wouldn't clear the show, even though BCI, the makers of this collection, agreed to add a disclaimer. I think I have to side with Bob on this - it would be nice to see the show for historical purposes, but it does make him look like a hypocrite.

Missing models and decades - Barker and his beauties have beefs with each other. He admitted to an affair he had with Dian Parkinson, who sued him for $8 million afterwards. Holly Holstrom sued him for unlawful termination when she was fired in 1995 for being overweight. She got money in a settlement that was reportedly in the millions. Janice and Kathleen were let go in 2000, mainly because they testified in Holly's lawsuit against Barker and sided with Holly. They supposedly were paid a severence package in agreement not to sue. The 80s and 90s shows featured all of the models mentioned. Apparently Barker doesn't want to models to get any more money. Janice is featured since she was on from the first show and Diane is on an hour-long show. No Holly or Kathleen in this set.

No Rod Roddy - Bob reportedly got mad at Rod when he (Rod) went to negotiate for himself and the models that their salary for the nighttime specials should be equal to if not more than the daytime show. Bob cut Rod's on-camera time from the show after that. The excuse given was they "no longer show announcers on camera." Rod is not featured at all in this collection.

Other than that, the collection shows how the present day TPIR evolved from a friendly, sometimes unpolished show to the slick and smooth show it is today, with Barker's last week included. The Bill Cullen shows are a great treat as well. Yes, there was a TPIR back in the 50s and 60s, and the Cullen shows prove it. Plus to hear Johnny O say "Come on down" once again. He's the one who made that phrase famous.

HASH(0x9f61faa4) out of 5 stars A Best Of? Perhaps Not, But Worth Every Penny For These 26 Gems Sept. 26 2009
By Robert Marriott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Firstly, I'd like to agree with previous reviews that this isn't really a "Best Of" compilation, but I think much of the criticism is overly harsh, with some reviewers giving this a one star rating. My guess is that the title, "Best of Price is Right," was chosen for lack of a better name. The episodes do seem to be fairly random, and while I'm not sure the reason for this, I doubt "Random Episodes of the Price is Right's Early Years" would have had a nice ring to it. I also doubt we could all agree on which episodes are the "best", so pleasing everyone would be impossible.

However, what you do get is worth every penny:

The first disc contains mostly episodes from the original 1950s series (i.e. pre-Bob Barker days), and while I didn't expect much going in, I have to admit these early episodes have a certain charm. They also provide a good comparison / contrast to the more familiar series we all know and love.

The second and third discs contain episodes from 1972 (the first season) to 1975. It would have been nice to have the very first episode included in this set, but you get a good sampling, none the less. It's interesting to see the very early episodes where many of the seats were empty and mistakes and malfunctions in the equipment are common. As time progressed, audience attendance increased and new games are added... and some games (like the unwinnable bullseye game) are dropped.

The fourth disc contains episodes from Bob Barker's final week on the show. I haven't watched this disc yet, but I'm looking forward to it since I missed these when they originally aired.

Having grown up watching TPIR (since the early 1980s anyway), I'm excited to be able to own ANY of the early episodes in a long-lasting, high-quality format. Until now, the only way I could relive some of the early material was via low-quality chopped-up scenes featured on YouTube.

I sincerly hope this won't be the last of these sets. I would LOVE to see more episodes from the 1970s and early 1980s! Sadly, I have a feeling there are no plans in the works to do this.

PS. It's great to look back at the products and prizes on the show and know in those days they were all MADE IN AMERICA!!!

HASH(0x9f64fd50) out of 5 stars Not the "BEST" of TPIR June 3 2008
By Michael G. Siepel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
As a life-long fan of the show, I am very dissapointed. Fremantle would be better to put together a disc set of bloopers, set mis-haps, behind the scenes (showing the entires soundstage) and cast/crew interviews.

I have a problem with this being promoted as the "Best of The Price Is Right". This is in fact a compilation of what seems as the first season of The Price Is Right, their move to 1 hour episodes and the last week of Bob Barker.

I have seen better episodes on the Internet. I wish I could get my money back, but I would not be able to.

HASH(0x9f6809c0) out of 5 stars Not The Best April 15 2008
By Viola D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
As a long time Price Is Right fan I was eager to see The Best of The Price is Right. Unfortunately it is not on this dvd set. I did find the Bill Cullen shows interesting, and those old dark haired Bob shows were entertaining, but a little goes a long way when you are eagerly waiting for the best to begin. I expected to see the Price Is Right that I loved with the beautiful girls Janice, Dian, Holly, and the adorable Johnny. Those shows aren't anywhere on this dvd set. I was expecting The Best of The Price Is Right but sadly it's not here.

HASH(0x9f647bac) out of 5 stars Price is right with "Price Is Right" April 30 2009
By Christopher B. Book - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Many have harped about the DVD set "The Best Of The Price Is Right" for its selection of its earliest four years of the CBS show and Bob Barker's final week as it excludes some noted show models. Others, who were born way after the CBS show began, think the Bill Cullen shows shouldn't have been included ("It's not in color!..." "it doesn't have pricing games!..." "the contestants aren't crazy!..." "we can't psychoanalyze the lettering font in a game display!"). Cry me a river, all of you. Cullen's show was TV's top game in its day and Barker's version probably wouldn't have made it on the air without it paving the way. As for the selection of Barker episodes, let it stand as a testament, a litmus test, of how it started as a "Let's Make A Deal" ripoff and became TV's longest running game. If anyone's to blame for not having a wider spread of shows, blame either CBS or Barker himself and his beef with the excluded models.
