The Gadget Show

I am glad to see the return of the gadget show on channel 5. Possibly THE BEST technology show in the world!

You are joking, yes? When the intro highlighted items about the world's most expensive gadget, an attempt to make an amateur special effects video, and a sort of Heath Robinson sled powered by water pressure, I sighed and switched channels. I found Uni Challenge on BBC2 and watched something intelligent for a while.

Sometimes wonder what happened to some of the bizarre inventions and gadgets that were aired on BBC's Tomorrows World by the likes of Raymond Baxter and James Burke.

Joking there...

Must admit I used to enjoy this programme more a few series ago - it's now gone the same way as Top Gear and become more about the presenters and silly "challenges" whather than concentrating on the actual 'gadgets'!

The competitions are well worth entering though :)

If you like wasting money, yes.

I liked the gadget show as well - but it has lost the plot somewhat.

Too right. They may give away a huge bundle of stuff, but the sums (with rough estimates, of course) suggest that they're substantially up on the deal once a load of mugs - I mean viewers - have phoned in with the answer to their very easy question.

I quite like the gadget show. It has become rather shallow, but it must be difficult to keep coming up with new angles, when reviewing cameras, phones, printers etc.

I like watching Suzi Perry, dribble, dribble...
And that little hobbit guy (I don't know his name) makes me laugh, he's so overly enthusiastic about everything.

Was it just me, who thought that diamond encrusted phone looked really tacky.
