It's officially dead
9 September 2004 | by crash21See all my reviews

Sadly, the screen savers episode I saw yesterday has officially dashed my hopes of anything good ever coming from G4TechTV. They've officially killed the Tech in G4TechTV by ruining the last decent show from Tech TV. The show got terribly lame when Leo Laporte left. It was no longer comical or entertaining. It was basically lame tech news.

The news used to be the best part of the show because they'd mock a lot of the stories. Now the news is just "the news" and nothing more.

Now Patrick has left too, probably since he realized that the show was dying. And now Patrick has been replaced with someone who is not funny, and terribly annoying. This is just like what happened when Leo left the show, only the annoyance factor has more than doubled with the new guy. I'd rather watch re-runs of the old shows, than what G4TechTV is showing now.

A good analogy for what has happened with the merger of G4 and Tech TV is like saying Nickelodeon buys out ESPN. They tell both the kids and the sports fans they're going to keep the programming of both stations intact. Then they start replacing more and more sports shows with cartoons and kid game shows. Then they take what's left of ESPN's shows and put Nickelodeon characters and interactive junk for kids all over them. And before you know it, there are no sports left, and the channel's name has been changed back to Nickelodeon. With the closest thing to a sports event is some stupid show with kids competing for a plastic trophy.

I will miss Tech TV's superior programming very much, especially The Screen Savers. Maybe once people stop watching it, they'll re-join on a new channel.

Now that the network's name has been changed back to G4 and now this is called "Attack of the Show" you can easily see what their motive was from the beginning. Although, I think their new name for "The Screen Savers", "Attack of the Show" is rather symbolic for all of this, but they should call it "Attack of the Idiots".
