SNIP
But then, last Friday they announced that The Screen Savers was no more.SNIP I guess it was inedible, and it was painful to watch my beloved show slowly die, but now it's gone forever. SNIP
I've heard of TV you could sink your teeth in to, but actually eat?

Yeah, I was a casual watcher of Tech tv, Screensavers with Leo and Patrick was great, but the new hosts and everyone leaving for different shows just kinda bottomed out and got boring.

X-play is one of my favorites, it really is getting too quirky and not to the point.  I was really excited to see their coverage of the GDC, I watched it up to the end and they were doing this fish gag for half the show, I kept telling myself, 'any minute now, they'll mention spore' but nope, nada, nothing.

*sigh*

I really liked the channels being seperate, if I wanted to learn and watch about hardware, computers and the lot, I'd put it on Tech Tv. If I wanted to watch something about games, I'd watch g4...  Is it just me or did that huge game awards thing felt weird, not like when you watch the other award shows... I dunno...
XYZZY!

X-play is begining to annoy me..... It will have a 5 min review of a game and not tell me anything about the game. It will just score it and show me clips that make no sense

well I'm to yuong to have seen TSS from the begining ( I being 14 almost 15) I only saw it after G4 bought it and I found it really annoying. X-play is also somthing I don't think I watched (but I could of). I useto watch G4 everyday but then Arena began to sink when they got rig of the old hosts (I know there names but I just can't remeber right now). and I would keep going but its dinner.

The selling of TechTV was the work of the devil.  I don't bother turning on my tv anymore because it's all turned to crap, and my only joy will be comming back july, so I can turn it on again.

I remember that show from about a year ago. However the shows that I caught were filled with Leo plugging his book every other sentance. I mean I understand one plugging one's book on one's own show...but Leo over-did it a bit. Good show otherwise.

I was glad when they got rid of Leo, he seemed obnoxious. Whenever Kevin was about to say something interesting, Leo would just interrupt and steal what he was going to say. Not only that, he wasn't as cool as Kevin. They should have just made Sarah the co-host.

The only good show left on tech TV is the one they can't ruin: Cinematech.  How they going to destroy it? Give it a new host?  A stupid punk-rocker-ripoff set?

I agree with ypu steve the screensavers was the best!
I miss iit too.
At least we have Leo on CFH at 9AM.
I hav heard that he wants to make CFH similar to the Screensavers of old, and that he wants Patrick to be there too.
Let see what happens.

Things to do when I win the lottery #120712

-Hire Joe and Patrick to help create shows a new TechTV-style network.

#120712b
-Buy out Adam and Morgan's contracts and give them a new show on same network, lauch mightily as the X-Play interns try to take over the show and fail miserably.

I dont think even the best rollover prize is enough money to buy a TV network.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
