I was turning the channels this morning and came upon g4tv and it was Leo Leporte! G4tv did a smart thing to bring back loved Leo and Call For Help. I then did some research on g4tv site afterwords and found out today was the preimere of the Call For Help show, which is all new. It comes on 11am EST on G4TV if you people wanna watch this great tech show again!

Actually, Call for Help has been on our TechTV here in Canada since G4 took over. I guess they realized that people didn't just want to watch shows with game trailers and car tricks. :rolleyes:

The only two shows that are worth watching are X-play and Call for help now. I wanna see patrick norton back, too. Actually, I want my TechTV back ;_;

I love X-play. Morgan Webb is hot!!! Thats not the only reason,though, but it sure is a good one.

They have a few shows I'll stop on if I'm flipping channels, but they where better as techtv.

Somebody that called in on call for help acked about megan, and said she had twins that both weighed in 7 pounds a peice. And yea I would love to see ole pat back. G4 has really made the channel crap, especially The Screen Savers aka Attack of the Show.

Screw Kevin. That guy is a major tool and a pretty face. It was best with Leo and Patrick and Yoshi.

That just may be the dumbest thing I've heard all day. Maybe you never watched TechTV or something, but TechTV, in my opinion, was mostly quality programming. Shows like ScreenSavers was actually something I'd look forward to watching.

I loved it.

Anyways, I'm glad Leo is back. Like said earlier in this thread, we definitely need Patrick back. He was awesome.

Only way he'll come back is if they move back to San Francisco. He didn't move to LA with the new set because he wanted to stay with his wife and kids.

...Why?

A few shows never to watch again:

Cheat- Worst jokes and/or comments ever made...ever, and its a show about CHEAT CODES FOR GAMES. Time filler show. FAIL

Players- Popular people playing video games. Buy these games now! I look pretty! FAIL

Cinematech - Buy this game! FAIL

Filter - Not amusing/good in any way. Time filler show pretty much. FAIL

The list goes on.

G4 = FAIL

Yep G4 is pretty bad. The only good shows on it is X-Play and Call For Help. Also they have some good anime on at nigh too.

Watched a lot of TV while in the states some time ago; goddamn G4 is riddled with time fillers. Was about 6mins "show" and then same commercials again

At least Arena is still on. That show makes me laugh so hard I almost pee myself.

The problem with G4 is that it's not aimed at real gamers, it's aimed at the MTV 'Halo beats all' gamers.

For those who wanting to listen to the great people of Leo, Pat, Yoshi and other old Screen saver ppl. Leo has a pod cast every week called TWIT: This Week In Tech. You can download and listen at Leo's Radio site: http://leo.am/radio/pmwiki.php

I wish it would go back to be more like Tech TV and less like G4....

Slowly but surely it is making its way back onto Australian PayTV. A local company here used to have TechTV, was one of the channels I used to watch quite a lot of
