Tech TV ruled while it lasted, then G4 came and I figured if this is what the next gen wants then so be it, at least we still have a legitimate cable TV presence. Then my cable provider stopped offering it and I just reverted back to the community and the net. Then I discovered the webshows, but by then it was just meh, so no big loss. Like someone else said, a tech show on tv will never reach the target audience, real techies get their news from the interwebz.

For anyone that liked TechTV, just head over to http://twit.tv/. That's were Leo has been hiding for the last several years.

Some good stuff comes up there. Mary Jo Foley (Windows lady), Patrick Norton sometimes, and Paul Thurrott. There seems to be more higher lever discussion instead of talking about the latest Apple product or what keyboard to buy...

Fucking techno-hipsters, they manage to take anything and everything cool and make it stupid.
They're like the 21st century version of 1960's hippies, 1970's grunges, 1980's punks, or 1990's granolas... but far more GAY than all of them combined!!!

I think Southpark said it right about metrosexuals as well.
Shouldn't they have died off, circa 2009? Why didn't these stupid fads die with the last decade?!

There's more metrosexuals than geeks that would subscribe to a channel or watch its ads about the new Vidal Sasson for your pubic hair commercial.

As far as the poor chap that got alarmed by my view of Mila Kunis. Its sarcasm good sir. I really wouldn't do that. A chick that hot, in front of me. I'd spray semen like a firehose, unable to control it, the room would look like a Van Gogh painting and she wouldn't even get the top 3 buttons undone on her shirt before I'd be passed out. :p There, are you better now you delicate flower? :D

Oh and fact she has been photoshopped out the ASS and looks nothing like that it is obvious to any body in the photoshopping biz or anybody who is good with photoshop and or anything like it.\ most of her body and skin is fake.

TechTV is dead. Long live TechTV... er, wait... there is no new one to replace it. Shit.

I still search for old Screen Saver episodes.

Besides the fact I'd eat the corn from her shit.

It doesn't change the fact that a once fun station is now dead.

Metrosexual men can have their murses, and their gay triple layered
pop up collar lives.

Good geek TV is on Roku and Podcasts.

Don't put the pussy on a pedastal

I think this will be an improvement.

Seriously, I hated that channel. All those pretentious people pretending like they knew and liked games. All the geek sheek(sp) and what have you. Basically it aimed to be the spike of the tech world. Since they moved up the Power Block on spike to end when normally it would start I'm done with that channel too.

So they turned the tech channel I used to love into G4 and now are turning G4 into something I'd never watch again. So now that channel really truly is dead.

I feel exactly the same way, i used to watch Tech TV all the time, they had some pretty cool shows on there about up and coming tech and they taught people a few tricks about using windows or whatever else they had on the slate for the day......now its just gone from bad to worse.....

On TWIT yesterday, it was said that it had been approved for Patrick and Leo to come back for the AOTS finale. It may have been partially serious.

Same thing has been happening to all the other channels; TLC, DSC, NATGEO, Science, History, H2, Food.............etc.
The only channel that hasn't been reduced to "reality" or "competition wars" shows is Cartoon network, and sadly that is going down the drain too.

This. Those first five channels exchange the same shows 75% of the time, and have 2-3 channel specific shows that take up the other 25% (usually repeated, multiple times a day/week).

Cable is trash. 100, 200 channels of the same 10 channels worth of stuff.

National Geographic should have Nature documentaries; TLC educational series, Discovery Unique/New/Exciting World Issues; Science should be look/feel like I'm watching an issue of Popular Science / American Scientist; History, History.

I have no problem with "reality" shows (TLC has more leeway than the others for this), but when the majority of the "content" is some host's mug + unending chatter or a group of out-of-work actors pretending to be X, Y, or Z; something is wrong.

I can't even have a Science Fiction channel anymore! That is NOT a small demographic, and certainly not one that needs "filler" like WWE wrestling.

And I won't even get into commercials....

Thanks to the internet we can keep up with Leo and the other hosts from TechTV. As soon as it was switched to G4 it has been crap. I will miss COPS (the only show I watched on that channel.

I've been watching TWiT on youtube for the last couple days. John C. Dvorak is the man.

I went to TWiT #25 while visiting my sister in San Francisco (still have the pocket protector).

Amazing how you can flip through 100 channels, and there is nothing worth watching on. Wish I could just pick (and pay for) the few channels I occasionally watch.

Years ago I used to watch the SiFi channnel all the time, but now I can't even remember the last time I watched it. If I could pick which channels I'd pay for, I doubt I'd include the SyFy channel.

This makes sense for my Comcast channel lineup.

Ch#162 - G4
Ch#163 - Logo (gay channel)
Ch#164 - IFC (Indie movies)
Ch#165 - Sundance (Indie movies)

so 162 becomes the metro channel, then you move to 163 the full gay channel, then to 164 and 165 which are the a-sexual/eunuch/'life is feel' channels.

And that completes your sexual evolution.

Mo-homo = population control strategy. It was either that or contaminate the ground-water of high birthrate african countries with oral contraceptives.

100% this. I could *stand* G4 back in its early days but absolutely not after they started branching out to more general shit, and lol, shit like Japanese game shows and COP reruns = ugh.

I agree with you 100% except for Cartoon Network. Recent years have graced me with Adventure Time, Regular Show which have rekindled my love for the classic cartoons like Ren and Stimpy before them. The future could be different and while I think the Toonami revival has sucked so far (mostly because I hate 90% of newer anime) overall I think CN is okay.

As opposed to the straight sports channels, where you watch a bunch of really muscular dudes in close physical contact wearing spandex trouserpants.

:p

I may get a lot of flack for this, but I'm a metrosexual. It beats being a fat fuck piece of shit, or a nerd stereotype. And I get more attention from higher quality woman. ;)

And even I could care less about this channel. This idea just seems terrible...

Don't forget, they are breathing heavy, sweating like crazy, while playing with balls.

How could you be Metrosexual staring at this?

esquire_november_cover_a_p.jpg

A MetroSexual is not thinking "UBER HOT CHICK". They are thinking "OMG!, What brand jeans are those??"

For anyone that is wondering what this Metrosexual thing is about here it is:
Effeminate men. Ones that are not concerned with what usually concerns men.
They are primarily concerned their appearance. So they go to spas, get manicures, got o hair salons instead of a barber.

This is how far our society has descended into the abyss. :(

So we are losing Morgan Web so that they can broadcast metros cooking souffle and talking about ties and cuflinks?
MADNESS!!!

I'm sure Morgan Webb will *easily* find a home on Twit or Revision3- where all the tech programming went since TechTV went down the tubes. (I'll bet on Rev3 since Adam Sussler is already over there)

Hey, I'm not metro, but I go to a salon. That's only cause the barber shops don't have one of those hair washing stations. If they had them, I'd still be going. I just want the hair washed out, so I can go do other shit. Instead of being all itchy and having to run home to shower it up.
