Ok, if you are like me, you sat down and watched the season premiere of Junkyard Wars, the new US version. Now, am I alone in thinking that the new version absolutely stunk up the joint? First of all, they replaced the annoying but bearable british host guy for an annoying but unbearable american guy! Hey I was just gettin to like that annoying british guy too!!! Also did you notice how some of it was scripted?!!?! That took the naturalness away from it, and added some horrible jokes. Im angry, errrr

I was thinking the same thing. The new host is one of those generic over-energetic-know-nothing TV host type people barely qualified to host a dinner party, let alone a program on national television.

Also, haven't see seen these competitions before? How many different 'design a big gun' variants are we going to have to watch?

I hope they get their act together soon.

Wow, tough audience. We seem to get cranky without our robot building fix. Maybe try building a treb during down time?

Professor Frink: Finished!

My friend, a recent FIRST convert, and i build one from a mindstorms kit... its a proof of concept so far and we haven't gotten around to motorizing the silly thing just yet, but it works! it hurled a lego brick and hit someone's knee.

But i'm still cranky about the cheezier junkyard wars...

Gee, kinda reminds me of the time I was picking
apart the new female on Battlebots :)

-Jessica B, #237, who just convinced her French teacher of all people to skip West Wing for just one week to watch it :)

I watched a couple episodes before it got "cheesified" as you call it.. And I wasn't too impressed with it then.. And I don't really see much different with the last season as compared to this season.. Maybe it's just me..
