We’ve been getting into these 24/7 1980’s Barker-Era “The Price is Right” (TPIR) on PlutoTV.

There’s a lot to like:

— Danger! Contestants sometimes fall into the wheel.

— Sexism. “Women aren’t very good at Blank Check.”

— More sexism. Women have to reach into Barker’s coat pocket to get a $100 bill. Men, he just hands it to them.

— Porn. Barker’s Beauties.

— Backstory. The lawsuits.

— Weird racial comments. “You look like an Asian extraction.”

— Tension. Barker sometimes belittles or gets into it with contestants.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of family fun. There is something for everyone.
