Added DiffLines:

** Firstly, the wall was actually constructed across the entirety of the stage. Large brick-sized windows allowed the audience to see the band within, until the set got to "Another Brick in the Wall, pt. 3", when these would be closed off, and the open center portion began to be filled in. Waters would sing "Goodbye Cruel World" from the final brickhole, which would be closed by a stagehand at the moment the song finished. Additional notches in the wall would be revealed for the second half, including the trashed hotel room that Pink was staying in. Gilmour's solo in "Comfortably Numb" was performed on top of the wall, while the wall itself was tumbled from top to bottom by stagehands at the end of "The Trial".
** Large puppets of the Schoolmaster, the Mother and the Wife appeared throughout the first half. Pink himself appeared as a tiny puppet atop the wall for "Stop".
** A circular screen above and behind the band showed the animations provided by Scarfe; other projections would appear on the bricks of the wall, most notably during "Waiting for the Worms" and "The Trial", which played the same sequence from the film. For the 1990 performance on the "no man's land" section of the UsefulNotes/BerlinWall outside Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, the call to "TEAR DOWN THE WALL" at the end of "The Trial" switched the animated footage to [[TearJerker superimpose the actual graffiti from sections of the real Berlin Wall]] onto the fake one, before it was toppled over.
** "In the Flesh?", as well as the Fascist Pink concert near the end of the album, were actually performed by a fake Pink Floyd band in front of the wall, complete with their own bombastic light show.
** For the 1990 performance, all of the guest performers appeared in front of the wall in their own eccentric costumes, with Thomas Dolby as the Schoolmaster taking the cake: he was strapped to the wall in an enormous version of the costume, with the limbs containing large bungee straps for him to bounce around on.
** For ''The Wall Live'', Waters' 2010-13 tour, the puppets were updated, new animations were produced, and a drone-controlled inflatable pig were added.

** On one episode, a father in isolation was prone to monologuing about personal experiences related to the question, such as that one time they went hot air ballooning and he hated that there was no navigation system. Later on, a question comes up about car brands, and his daughter realizes he is ''sure'' to bore them all with a long-winded story about his Dodge Caravam, and gets Chris and her family to bet on it. And wouldn't you know it, he ''does'', [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments completely stalling out the game.]]

* {{Padding}}: Of course, it would not be an NBC game show without it being excessively stretched out. The final round is the worst offender. There's also the fact that it almost seems scripted for the couples/families to play it up for the cameras where they yammer on about how they've gotten to where they are now before announcing whether or not they've torn up the contract, and then the other person drags it out by taking their sweet time to get to the meat of the conversation through working up to the reveal of their final total instead of it just being a direct "I did/did not tear up the contract", followed by "we won/would have won this much money", which is ''all'' we need to know. In other words, most endings will probably have you screaming, ''"Get on with it!"'' There's even one episode where a question comes up about car brands and a daughter realizes her father is ''sure'' to bore them all with a long-winded story about his van, and gets Chris and her family to bet on it.

* XMeetsY: Besides the obvious lifting from ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' (It's basically Plinko at a much larger scale), the mechanic of the endgame revisits the idea of ''Series/SetForLife''. However, in contrast, where the point of the isolated contestant in ''Set for Life'' was to prematurely stop the game in secret based on how their partner is playing the game, the point of the isolated contestant here is to secretly influence the game outside, and make a decision between the bailout and risking an unspecified amount of money -- without any knowledge of how they are actually doing.
** On February 15, 2017, Hardwick himself hilariously defended ''The Wall'' when ''Price'' host Drew Carey returned to his other show ''Series/AtMidnight'', arguing that it was ''not'' Plinko, and that Pachinko had been around for centuries.

** When Roger Waters took his solo Wall tour to Europe in 2013, concertgoers misinterpreted Waters' use of the Star Of David (along with other logos and symbols such as the Christian cross, [=McDonald=]'s logo, hammer and sickle, Shell Oil logo and the Mercedes logo being dropped like bombs from airplanes) during the "Goodbye Blue Sky" visual, along with a Star Of David printed on the inflatable pig which is destroyed, and the Hammers/Nazis scenes, as being Anti-Semite and Pro-Nazi. [[https://www.facebook.com/notes/roger-waters-the-wall/an-open-letter-from-roger-waters/688037331210720 Waters denied this]], stating he was protesting it as a "symbol of the state" rather than the Jewish religion, and that his issue was with Israel conducing a state of Apartheid within its borders since 1967.
