    I don't. I think he should give a transformer to everyone he's offended:horse:  :horse: 

    Seriously though, how is G4tv? It's one of the more costly tv stations where I live and I'm not too sure if I should order it. I've seen previews, but nothing seems to jump out at me...

    I really like G4. It seems to have gotten a whole lot better lately. A few new hosts on some of their shows. The new co-host on Attack of the Show, Olivia Munn, is hot. I'd attack her show anyday :ev:

    Too bad we don't get much of the "advertised" shows up here. It is still called G4-TechTV here. They fill in the holes with lots of Canadian content though... If you are a fan of Call for Help (which I am).. it is on all the time!

    G4's pretty cool if you follow the schedules. If not, everytime you turn it on a show having nothing to do with video games is on. Always liked Cinematech, XPlay, that other review show and the occasional Attack of the show.

    Kinda annoys me though since it's the only game channel there is and theyre too damn desperate to play anything or recycle dead , washed up shows.
    It's turning in to a rerun special spankavision.
    Going for the M ratings.
    Even the strippers they hire , hoping the dorks are masterbating too, are ugly with big body bruises .
    Cmon G4, stop being so desperate. I need the games, and dont want to watch 'Beat-off central'
    Have better porn on dvd and pc :lol 

    < went back to reading EGM and GI for my gaming needs.

    If any TF fans are thinking of getting G4, the simple answer is "Oh God NO!"

    The channel is a complete pile of crap. The only shows I can slightly suggest are now Xplay and the various Star Trek shows. Everything else has gone down the crapper BIG TIME... Even Xplay sorta sucks these days. Last week I started watching Attack of the Show again, and its at least 10 times shittier than when I stopped watching. The one single improvement is the new co-host Olivia Munn, who is smoking hot!

    Other shows have taken a dive too. They're bringing back Filter with some just plain unattractive blonde, and changing the formula of the show... Seriously, how the hell could you fire the hot asian girl that was there before?! I hope somebody got hit by a car for that decision.

    And of course the whole channel is going for the "M" ratings... which might be nice if they showed something that does not suck and keep it uncensored.

    I also remember reading that G4 is one of, if not the lowest channel on cable in terms of ratings. Even shopping networks are above them. With the crap that G4 shows, I’m not surprised.

    On a positive note, I once turned to Cinematech and saw about 30 seconds of an ultra fine Japanese model doing a photo shoot... It was not related to games, but at the time I didn’t care.

    So if you wanna see Beast Wars, go buy the DVDs! ;)

    Yeah the only things I watch is Star Trek and occasional attack of the show. It's the MTV of Video Game channels it has almost nothing to do with what it's supposed to.

    Very little is worthwhile on G4. I watch X-Play regularly, mainly for the incredibly-hot and funny Morgan Webb. Adam makes me laugh too, and the show is entertaining overall for me. Besides, there just isn't another show like it for gamers, and they spare me the trouble of having to read game reviews. I just like a capsule review--does the game suck or not?--and be done with it. And X-Play delivers.

    Granted, I'd like the show a lot more if it was shot with Morgan in the shower, but eh--you can't have everything.

    "Filter" is a waste of time (I hate "list" shows), and so is "Cheat!" (just get your cheat codes online, for crying out).

    "Arena" is one of the dumbest ideas ever made into a TV show. I mean, who the @#$% wants to watch other people play video games?

    I watch "Action Blast" on occasion for the TF bits (fell asleep watching the premiere BW ep this morning), but the Kaiju Battel stuff is annoying and so are the hosts.

    "Attack of the Show" is poorly-produced and I can't stand Kevin--he seems like he'd be an uber-jerk in real life. Besides, you can get all their "news" much quicker online. I did like Sarah when she was on the show, but I don't care for this new Olivia chick. She may be good-looking, but she's boring to watch--her face has about as much expression as a video game character in the 90's.

    And "Electric Playground" is only moderately better than AOTS.

    I do like watching "Cinematech" if I'm bored and there's nothing else on. And "Icons" has always been entertaining and informative for me, if you like video game history.

    Most of G4's other programming is syndicated reruns. But I've seen classic Trek and TNG so many times already. And the Man Show's much better on DVD, without freaking commercials. They also have "Fastlane" -- one of the most ridiculous cop dramas I've ever seen. I get sucked into watching it, though, just hoping that Tiffani Thiessen (hottie formerly of "Saved By The Bell") will grace the screen in a bikini or other state of undress, but it never happens.

    If you can live without a show like "X-Play", you're not missing anything not having G4.

    The only thing on G4 I'd qualify as "awesome" is Icons. A documentary show about video games just appeals to me, especially when they interview all the variosu franchise creators.

    Icons has fallen into rerun-itis, lately, which kinda sucks.

    I occassionally watch Cinematech when nothing else is on. I kinda wish they'd do music videos or something to clips from the games. Put a little more effort into the show.

    X-Play wouldn't be bad if it wasn't for that douchebag Adam Sesslor. I can't stand freakin' nerd. He's like the worst kind of hyper active "look at me look at me look at me!" otaku dork, only on national television.

    I like their reviews of the actual games, it's just that shit in-between that annoys me. So I usually just change the channel and flip back after a few minutes.


    That's honestly all I watch on their network these days. I used to watch Filter when it was hosted by that Fook Me chick, but then they ran out of ideas. Judgement Day I thought had a better ratings system than X-Play (which gives 90% of their games a 3 out of 5), but I haven't watched that in forever.

    I used to watch their reruns of Starcade like crazy, but then they got rid of em.

    G4 is pretty must a lost cause, unless they can make some new episodes of Icons or something.
