Actually quite looking forward to this. As much as it's an admission that the 'World Tour' failed, it's good to see that they're going back to the original format, which I personally thought only needed some minor tweaks and changes to freshen it up.

Just a shame it cost them Suzi and Ortis really, but Rachel Riley could have some potential.

Shouldn't it have been rechristened 'The Tech Show'?
They seemed to drop 'gadget' or 'gadgets' from the scripts after around series 3 or 4? as in 'If you love your tech, this is for you'
Is internet slang for technology acceptable on a television programme?

Or the "Techy Gadget Show" ?

I suppose it'll be an eye candy bonanza for the gentlemen, what with Polly and Rachel. I wonder how soon in to the first episode they'll crowbar in a gratuitous bikini shot of either of them ?

Yes, perhaps the first item will be the Gadget Show ratings for Polly v Rachel.

Or a challenge "Using tech, how short can you make a skirt?"
Jon to judge with a Apple®™ micrometer®™.

PS Your thread title is much appreciated !

Had a look in 2 tv listings magazines and they both say 7pm but the epg does say 8pm. Has the time been changed recently , looks like the prog about the vietnam war has been removed?

Unless they are counting Julia Reid who has been drafted in to talk about gaming

Can someone tell Jason that the geek cheek hipster look has had its time and looks slightly ridiculous on someone who's that age. Look at those those glasses and cap!

Totally agree. He also needs to calm down a bit.

Just another thing that needs charging! I would rather have a wired headset than battery consuming Bluetooth ones that cost a fortune and only last a few hours between charges.

Those glasses. I don't think I can bear to look at them much longer.

The show is doing a lot of things right. The items have been great. Plenty information and I feel like they got justified ratings against similar competition.

However please tone jason down ffs

Am I the only person that actually quite liked the World Tour/All New Gadget Show format?
