Tacky, all family used to watch not watched it since new format IT'S BAAAAAD!!!!
Genuinely rubbish. Channel 5, what have you done???
Enjoyed watching TGS for years. The format has undergone changes (some subtle) for years. That's only to be expected. However, not only is this format change a dramatic one, but the decision makers have not understood that we 'relate to' the presenters, as a team. Too much, too soon. Bring back Suzi, Otis, & John; then amend - not change the old format. Until then, it's not worth watching. BORING! Will checkout Gadget Geek!

I love it! It is amazing! Keep up the top gadget work!!
Jason and Pollyanna you are both doing a great job.
Terrible, terrible, terrible. Old format needed tinkering with not bludgeoning with an axe. Jason acting like a 16 year old is annoying, Pollyanna is too superficial. Where are gadgets we can relate too? Why is the budget stretching to extended hols for production team? I've switched off, seems I'm not on my own. Sooner 5 rethink this sorry excuse for a programme the better or TGS will disappear forever
It's very annoying how Pollyanna and Jason look like they're being interviewed in a toothpaste advert. You're presenters...please look into the camera. Also miss the other presenters.
I LOVE the outer body experience machines, i hope i will get to experience one in my future
the gadget geeks on sky is far better than this crap
Marty Friedman Fan
I don't see whats wrong with this,
it is nice to see how got back after the Tsunami.
just got boring. Switched over, put it back channel 5 its going down the drain!! People dont like it. put it back otherwise you'll lose you precious money!!!!! PEOPLE ARE SWITCHING OVER!! We miss suzi,ortis and jon. C'mon
Average at best, don't like the new format and the fact that they had axed the rest of the presenters.
On the plus side I get an extra hour a week to do stuff now that I'm not watching...
So sad. used to look forward to the.show. its nowhere near as good. boo
V disappointed with new show. Gave it a chance 3 episodes but no longer. Come on C5 u need to rethink or you'll end up with no viewers.
HATSUNE MIKU :) its just amazing and they have lots more characters other that hatsune miku, its amazing :)
Boring, Boring and Boring
Didn't know they were going to change the format. Not sure I like it either but will give it a chance. Wonder if it's a cost cutting move or they're trying to do something different to compete with Gadget Geeks on Sky (maybe the other member will move there :)... )
Polly, kawaii? not! She looked sooo butch next to those Japanese girls lol.
Watched the gadget show since the beginning , agree with almost everyone's points here.. Seems 95% or more hate the new format.. I hate it too especially the contrived pieces to camera ... Like those annoying programmes about 80's music where the music is interrupted constantly by idiots taking about the music , instead of letting us hear it. It's weird .. Weird .. Like Jason and Polly .. But hate this format and losing the othe presenters and banter .. I'm not averse to change though .. But good change .. Can't watch anymore ...
utter utter garbage, Channel 5 what have you done! this program now has absolutely no conection with the viewer and real life consumer. You have turned it in to nothing more than a super jolly for two presenters that think of themselves as something way above their station.
By removing the old team you have taken away the viewers connection with the program. It made the things that were tested interesting and most of all relavent.
Instead you have created an absolute turd of a program and like they say, no matter how hard you try you can't polish a turd.
I have watched the gadget show for years but now it has been deleted from my sky+ and you have lost a loyal viewer and also another possible entry into your competition.
Bring back John Otis and suzi and make a program that consumers can relate to by testing and reviewing things that they can actually buy in a manner that makes sense and by that i mean by not testing 3D TV's on the back of a boat in glaring sunlight wearing sunglasses! pathetic.
And you might get this viewer back.
Utter crap without Suzi, Otis and John. BIG mistake.
Banzai its Hatsune Miku
They should bring back Jon Bentley and make it the format of Tomorrow's World - more reviews, less childish challenges. Love the picture quality - full HD at last and not frame-reduced upscaled SD! But, please, ditch the eye candy and make it a more serious Gadgets review show.
Horrible, they made a disgrace to the country. Not even learning thank you and mispronouncing words in the first part. (Moe is Mo-Eh)
Bring Back Suzi
Really not keen on the new format. Watched two weeks now and it's just doesn't gel. Not enough info on the toys and toys no one wants, with pseudo documentary chunks.
Why take one of the best format shows and ruin it?
2400 watts is nothing, Have they not been to a car show before, you can easily see 30,000+. Even the Gadget show live has stands with more wattage.
It's just as well that Gadget Geeks on Sky is dull as the Gadget Show World Tour has taken a format that I liked and ruined things. I didn't like Ortis that much but he was better than Polly. Sure Jason has still got it but the show is not the same without Jon and Susie. Saving money on presenters and splashing out on grand locations doesn't do it for me.
Death of the gadget show!
The new format sucks - why change something that isn't broken? The idiocy of programme makers sometimes leaves me completely baffled....
You do realise its not channel 5's fault for the format change, its the programme makers. Stop hating on channel 5
Why would Polyanna be embarassed with her looks, Gorgous eyes.
Ejoyed the show but missed the rest of the team.
you should of had the iphone app that translates different languages to English
It's not a new series of The Gadget Show but a new series probably a spin off.
I'm missing the rest of the gang. Hope 5 dosen't carry on with this format. :(
Total rehash of gadgets already seen, bring back original format and original presenters before everyone starts watching gadget geeks on sky.
utter utter rubbish. funny how the only people that did like it were only talking about Polly and her outfit! like The Hamster above and the rest of his teenage friends. the show was poor, very poor. I will not be watching again.
why did they keep pollyanna, she is the worst of the presenters! i miss suzi and ortis already!!!! also whats with the talking to the camera like your being interviewed. the new gadget show is not the same. i will not be watching the rest of this series. try fixing the problems by next series please
Sorry channel 5 This show was rubbish and i like the gadget show.
Seriously some of you lot need to fine some real issues in life to moan about. CH5 have got it right with Polly.... Make watching the show delightful. :o)
Love that Blue outfit Girl and its true, the Cannon sure did give a proffessional feel to the footage.....
WoW 2.57 in and Pollys flashing her pants...... Can this show get any better ?
Utter rubbish and cringable.. Silly bloody blonde bint. channel 5 i will never watch this show again.
It's crap now, I wont be watching again.
they need to get stuff right man! moyay or however you spell it doesn't mean cute, kawaii does 0.0 but love this japan episode makes me want to go even more <3
Think they got it wrong whoever thought getting rid of Suzy Otis & Jon was a good idea perhaps sack the person or persons who thought it a good idea and reinstate the old presenters really bad idea shame on you. to bring a great show down to this level is not the best idea you have had PLEASE GET THEM BACK..!!!!
What a shame, I cant even be bothered to watch the show to the end, It's not that I fear change, as gadget fan I generally embrace it. But you've taken the heart and sole out of the program.
its not the same bring back the old show !! mind you its cheaper to make less presenters to pay shame on five
Before, I supported the change. but now I think it should be changed back. The gadgets are too expensive, the presenter interview is a bad idea, and it is just not the same without a studio.
totally agree the show will never be the same. i know the show must move with the trends But is it? Will watch the next but may well be the last.
why didn't put on subtitle english in demand 5 of the gadget show ?. Because I m deaf person, I cant hear what telly say ?
Awful. Just, awful! And who thought you the "interview" type talk with the presenters... that's just terrible!
Like this Series but sad about the other presenters. I LOVE THE GADGET SHOW!
Not bad show :-)
For goodness sake tell the presenters to face the camera when they're talking to us!
bet everyone's gonna watch 10 minutes and switch over. It will never be the same... "
I managed 9m27s... Swtiched it off. What a shame. Tsumanakatta! Sayonari gadget show.
i bet you pound to a penny they bring suzi and otis back this is just a phase try out which has gone wrong
can you buy the robot parts
Brilliant first episode. Sorry there's no Suzi or Jon, but I've got to admit, it's good riddance to Ortis.
OK, this was basically a stretched out version a segment in the normal show. It is a decent concept, and could work as a short side project to the regular show, but it is no replacement for the original. I like ALL the presenters, but would be gutted if Ortis, Jon and especially the delectable Suzi were no longer on our screens. Was anything announced at the recent live show? I hope that the regular show returns in the near future with the full team on board.
went tothe gadget show live this year dont suppose that will be on next year, watch the new show today, very poor bring back old format.
bring back the old gadget show,not the same as without suzi,otis and jon.not realy to interested in the show now.
Wow, that was a pointless rehash of old episodes. Uninteresting, uninspired, zero technical information and (although Jason tried) theres nowhere near enough chemistry with the the very vapid Polly and Jason. Not going to bother with this season. If it returns to the old format I might try again otherwise Tekzilla is much much better.
Rubbish show, just a great oppotunity for some eye candy, Polly in costume rates a look anytime. But absolutely hate the new format. What will they do about Gadget Show Live 2013 without Suzi, Otis and Jon ???
I'll be back in 6 weeks to see if the others are back. If not, I'll check again next series. If they're still not back, then that's me and the Gadget Show over. Done. Kaput!
Pretty poor to be honest.
Preferred the old format, this format is like some cheap documentary just awful. Such a setup the whole thing not presenting just acting. Suzi was a main presenter should of been her over polly.
Them laptops they battered that apparently were used for production that were worth £40 each so old running xp just all made up hated it for that.
Boy, oh boy, oh boy, have Channel 5 made an almighty cock-up with The Gadget Show or what ! No doubt some smartarse executive on megabucks who thinks they know best ,decided this was a good thing to do without considering the public. The ratings will plummet and the show might end altogether. Well done C5!!!
Awful - turned it into platform for ditsy blonde to walk around in skimpy outfit. Why change format? Watch viewing numbers drop. Suzy John and Otis - pitch idea to C4 and do it properly.
New GS = EPIC fail.
Better to have spent the budget on HD recordings in the UK with Suzi, Jon, Ortis & Jason and properly reviewing tech that is readily available in the UK. I don't think I'm going to need to known how to make a fighting robot any time soon. I won't be watching the rest of the series. It was about the only Channel5 programme I watched.
Weird and strange format, didn't enjoy it. Also, why are we not being brought loads of tech reviews from all the lovely tech Japan has rather than stupid challenges. From 1 hour we were given a camcorder review, a modded car and a robot fight. GET BACK TO BEING A GADGET SHOW FROM TWO YEARS AGO AND STOP TRYING TO BE TOP GEAR!
Bring back the team! It just dosn't work without suzi,otis and jon. It used to be great when they all use to bounce off each others comments.
hi ch 5 u did it u kill the show off
this is a joke compared to the old format. so boring, and whats the interviewing about?? Its not big brother!!! you have turned a good show into a noshow. shame on you channel 5
Bring back Suzi, Jon and Ortis
This was woeful, I will be voting with my remote.
No more Gadget Show, no more Gadget Show Live (I'm assuming) without the brilliant TV show to back it up what's the point?
Well done ch5, you blew it! Bring back Suzi and the team...
Pollyanna, she's a Babe
i used to love the gadget show and i till do now it is amazing still i dont see why anyone didnt like it because it is an interesting program.
I think there was a massive budget cut to the show, but to say they've done a blair witch style Gadget Show it was ok, yeah we all miss the old presenters and format but change happens. Do agree with the fact there needs to be more gadget research less challanges
The old format was better, the old show was better.. The show is moving further and further away from the viewers.
That said, I hope I win the contest!
Watched the gadget show for years! Cant believe it has come to this- i am just not interested anymore. There are way too many challenges and hardly any tech info. Also what happened to the rest of the team! All the good presenters have now been gone, except Jason of course. I cant believe i am saying this, but it was absolutely rubbish and there is no way unless some things get amended-(although it would probably be too late for that) that i would watch another episode of this series again!!!!!!!!! What a sad end for what previously was a great show.
where's the rest of the gang? Booooooooooooooooring.
Polly dressed as Syaka from Madoka Magica lol
Jason's pronounciation was really bad,
Polly - plastic
Jason - irritating
Ortis - pronounced Ortis, not Otis
Suzi - where is she?
John - where is he?
Awful format, been watching the show for years. Thoroughly disappointed that you've chosen the weakest presenters.
Bring back Suzi and John, the glue that somehow made the five of them watchable.
RIP Gadget Show!! This is just embarrassing to watch, utter crap!. Pollyanna is an awful presenter and Jason has become so annoying he's unwatchable! he's like a kid who's been let loose in a haribo factory. Where are the proper product reviews and gadgets?. Why the over the top and completely irrelevant challenges?. The whole format of this show is just wrong and whoever came up with it should be sacked!!.
Not sure Channel 5 will like this but I decided to set up a facebook page to try and bring back the old gadget show, feel free to 'like' and share!
Why is it taking to long to load missing the old gang
struggleing to watch this, too much show & not enough gadets, where is everyone else, Polly looks mighty fine but its not the same with out Suzie & the boys.Get back to gadgets instead of story telling
Bad, bad. bad...
Compared to the old version, this is crap!
I cant watch this anymore. Probably wont. This show is crap now. I dont understand why C5 did this to it? Where did Ortis, John & Suzi go? They were what made it real. Without them there is no point!
Been watching it online, I've got to the second section of the show and cannot take anymore.
The single pieces to camera looked forced and are weird.
I miss the interaction that you got on the old show, having interaction between five presenters was great and full of energy, between two it is flat and boring.
I've had enough now and am stopping watching it. Never thought I'd get to this point on the Gadget show, I was an avid viewer who would not miss a single episode. I CANT WATCH THIS RUBBISH. I will not be tuning in again.
OMG this new format is absolutely terrible. I'm really upset tonight. I have watched every single episode of The Gadget Show since it started. It was my favourite programme on TV. I feel very depressed now. I don't have much happiness in my life at the moment and The Gadget Show was something I looked forward to every week. Channel 5 have ruined it. I really missed Suzi, Jon and Otis and really missed the studio banter, the challenges. EPIC FAIL CHANNEL 5 EPIC FAIL. I predict the viewing figures will drop like a stone and you will probably then axe the show altogether. I am so upset tonight.
the only show that i will watch on channel 5 now is robson green cus they have ruined the gaget show
jason gr8t but needs ortiz back other wise ther won't be a nuther series ....t
anyone know what tune is that plays in the background at 27:20????????????????
WHAT THE TUNE CALLED IN THE BACKGROUND AT 27:20
They're so lucky to go to that Vocaloid concert... Here in the UK, we only got a showing of a replay of that concert. ;_; Oh well, at least they had fun.
Disappointed that the girl was somewhat disrespectful to the concept of cosplay. It's one of my favourite hobbies.
Never the less, I still cringed a lot during this...
Iv watched the gadget show for years and this is absolute Garbage !
I 100% think polly was the worst presenter i mean cmon this episode reviwed all of 4 items.
This show was BoRiNg !!! bring back Suzi's gadget.
The Gadget Show: World Tour, hope this format is only for the world tour , bring back Suzi, Jon & Ortis
What a mistake dropping Jon, Suzi and Ortis. Won't make a special effort to watch this new format. Not impressed!!!
I love Polly and Jason, but really miss Suzi, Otis, and Jon. Suzi was the face of Gadget Show, as far as I was concerned. Please bring them back, I miss the whole team. BTW, Polly looks great in this episode.
Loved the episode but that's because I'm obsessed with Japan, everything Japanese and gadgets. Let's face it Japan is where it's at! Can anyone tell me where I can buy the lovery car. Seriously I need it!
It is sad that suzi and Otis are gone, however let's give it a chance. I bet everyone who is not going to watch anymore etc still entered the competition?
What have you done channel 5?
You have ruined a really great TV show! The format of the show was far better the way it was; have you heard the saying "if it 'ain't broke don't fix it!" How about spending money on presenters instead of flights. I suppose that's why the competition is now £2 plus normal text fee! Bring back Suzi, Jon & Ortis. It is a sad day :(
Wanna marry Polly!
Keeping Polly = Win putting her in a short skirt to start the new series = Win keeping Jason = Win everything else especially the format = EPIC EPIC FAIL sorry you've mucked up big time channel 5
Oh my gosh! Ty so much for featuring miku!! I've been a huge vocaloid fan since before the append series came out! I hope now that it's been featured on UK TV, the concerts will be brought over here to the UK for the 1000's of vocaloid fans here.
(Just to say though,be careful with your research next time...you got the definition of Moe wrong ..lol)
OMG MIKU HATSUNE!!!! Been a fan for years love her so much :)
Well I'm pretty dissappointed that Suzi and Ortis are gone but what the heck Polly is a good presenter, so is Jason.
althogh others may not agree i think that this new format but would be better with suzi otis and jon.
i love the show but tonight i was disapointed where is ortis and suzi. will not be watching anymore you are very sad CHANNEL 5
I'm going to take it as a bad thing that I recognised the costume from the camera test. Although from the looks of it I wasn't the only one.
I was really looking forward to the new gadget show but i am thoroughly disappointed with the new format. First of all the theme tune is changed to something rubbish at the end of the last series, now its all rubbish... i imagine gadget show live wont happen next year then. it seems odd to me that the gadget show gets so big and then gets changed, such a shame! this is the biggest mistake since fox played firefly in the wrong order and dropped the series... EPIC FAIL
So, do channel 5 listen to their audience? This was badly produced... from viewers perspective
Have enjoyed the Gadget Show since 2004/2005 and have been looking forward to tonight's show for weeks...I just watched tonight's and I did not enjoy it. Miss the banter, sexual innuendo, G ratings, Jon's public school uncool but cool presenting, Ortis's reactions and of course affordable gadgets.
I tried to like it but I don't, I truly gutted.....
I commend them on trying something new, but why try to fix something that wasn't broke? The old format was more fun and exciting. I can only imagine they were loosing viewers and this is a desperate rescue package!
Watched it , was ok.. thought there was too many presenters end of last season..now too few!!...bring back Suzi (mind you Polly is a beauty :)
i really like the gadget show but i'm gutted that ortis, suzi and jon are gone
what happened yo john, suzi and ortis? killed by the samurai??
i thoght it was grate i love japan and mangas!!!
bring back suzi and ortis new format is crap
bring back suzi and ortis dont think i will watch every show like i did before
why did they keep pollyanna, she is the worst of the presenters! i miss suzi and ortis already!
i'm glad im not the only one who doesn't like the new format!
Where has Suzi Jon and Ortis gone??... axed??
Jas your great but the new layout is very boring without the rest of the crew. Always watch it but won't be if it stays the same as this week. I am Knocking on 50 but still like the fun in the old style show and especially Suzi.
Not impressed at all. What's with the speaking to someone off camera like they're being interviewed? Thats just weird!! I miss the other guys already too? Bring back the old format.
bet everyone's gonna watch 10 minutes and switch over. It will never be the same...
Sayaka made a contract for mind controlled cat ears!
I hope it does not go down the route of top gear, all challenges and no info. Also gutted by the loss of Suzi, Jon and Ortis
Just hope the Gadget show does not go the same way as top gear. All challanges and no gadget info. Also gutted by the loss of Suzi, Jon and Ortis.
cant wait for new series but gutted suzi, ortis and jon have gone. wont be the same anymore :-/
