This is the Bullseye pilot that could pay up to $1,000,000 to any lucky contestant. The designated champion is Gale as she faces Scott, a bartender. Scott would go on to be on the premiere of the show. The difference from the main show and this pilot: the bonus round. For the pilot, a champion had the chance to up their winnings to $1,000,000. A number jumbler determined the number of spins they took to the bonus round: 3, 4, or 5. But if a Bullseye appeared, they could go on and on. Every spin they took gave them a chance to double their earnings from the main game and so on. To do so, they had to stop 3 bullseyes in the windows. If lightning struck, the game ended there and winnings lost. This is the bonus round, with the rest of the show.. ENDING MISSING
Here is the premiere of Bullseye with Jim Lange. First contestants are Royanne, a musician (interesting how her name came around), and Scott, a bartender who was actually a contestant on the pilot and would later be on the staff of Barry and Enright! A full game is played, a good exciting one to start off the series, and Bonus Island is played, and then a new player introduced before time runs out
Helen plays the Bonus Island bonus round and shows us exactly how it's played
Helen plays for the car
Helen has won 4 games, and this is her chance to win the car. She plays against Kathy McKee (I don't know if she's in relation to Thom McKee). Can Helen win it?
Leon ($7,400) and Stephe are right now in a heated battle with $1,500 in the pot, and when time was called, Stephe completed the previous contract and decided to leave it in the pot and continue, so he is in control. After this game, a great Bonus Island is played, with a new match beginning prior to time being called. Be prepared for this one!
Returning champion, Marc with $5,800 and yet to play Bonus Island, and he does so. Afterwards, he meets policeman Dick, who was just promoted to supervisor. Their full game is seen, and then the Bonus Island bonus round is played again. Afterwards, we are introduced to Toni...with Jim lange giving a weird admission. This should be good
Pam vs. Bonus Island
When time was called, Pam was set to play Bonus Island to play for a prize package and also add on to her $4,200 in cash. After that, Ron is back to play again...and when I say that, he is a returning challenger because Pam in the last show blitzed the game without giving Ron a chance to answer a single question. After their match and the Bonus Island game, Soni is the new challenger...but, is there enough time to play a game? Contestant and audience plugs included in this episode of Bullseye, although it's a USA rerun
Rufus vs. Bonus Island
Rufus is back again for another go at Bonus Island with $4,000 even. After his Bonus Island game, he faces off against Tom, a former page at the White House! They have a great game between them, and after the bonus round for that winner, we meet Sandy just before time is called. How does this episode of Bullseye fare? Sorry for the quality
Champion Judy ($7,150) was about to go for her fourth spin on Bonus Island with $1,100 and two Bullseyes frozen. Afterwards, she meets Wemkea, in what turns out to be a very good match for this civilian finale of Bullseye in 1982. After that, the Bonus Island endgame is played again, and another game gets in progress...but, I am afraid we never will know how it was finished
The first episode of the new Celebrity Bullseye format that just stunk completely in everyone else's view. We see the late Lynn Redgrave and the late Harvey Korman battle out for a chance to win money for their favorite charities. Lynn is playing for World F, and Harvey is playing for the Los Angeles World Hunger Event. Even during the game, Lynn has to file a complaint for the categories! Interesting first episode of Celebrity Bullseye here.
Donna Pescow vs. Rosey Grier
Donna Pescow from Angie is back with $7,700 for her charity, the Breast Center of Los Angeles. Her opponent is football player and actor, Rosey Grier has $2,800 for his charity, Giant Step. They are now in the rubber game of their match, one game a piece. Although this format killed the show, I think these two have a very exciting game what with their enthusiasm
