    I used to love the gadget show, but I am just watching an episode from the new series and I have to say it is boring me, and I love gadgets.The "challenges" were always my least favorite part of the show, but now, there is too much emphasis on these challenges for my liking. Also, the "reviews" that they do, aren't really reviews, just a lot of messing about with no information of real use to me. The show could be brilliant - Just look at how many gadgets there are, new and upcoming devices and technology, there are so many gadgets out there, I don't see why the program has to be "padded out" so much. It's a shame, but the program is of a really poor quality now and I probably won't watch it anymore. The BBC's technology program "click" is far better and a lot more informative. I think the gadget show should go back to focusing more on what's in the title of it's own show. GADGETS.

    I dare say, if the show was the success everyone makes out it was up to the point Jon, Suzi and Orits left, then they wouldn't have gone. I seem to remember that the last few series before they left were starting to feel tired. Unfortunately, I don't think it was the presenters that were at fault, more likely the increasingly repetitive and tiresome 'challenges'...

    I've been watching this show in Canada for many seasons now(don't ask me how,,but if you know anything about the internet,,you KNOW how),and I have to say,,as you Brits say,,,this show is RUBBISH!!! Bring back the old crew and make the show what is was,,,,FANTASTIC and INFORMATIVE!!! Just because Pollyanna is hot is not going to make this show watchable,,,,come on Five,,,be smart!!!!

    This new version of the show is just pants. I've been watching this show ever since it was just Jason and Suzi on their own. Now with Pollyanna as just eye candy and with no real idea what she's talking about, the whole premise about this show has gone AWOL. The word "gadget" meant something bak in the old show. Now it seems that all they want to do is just show video footage of thier fly drive holidays and talk about nothing of interest.....Boring! Bring back the old format and the old presenters, and get rid of Pollyanna, she's just not up to it. No offence, but all just does is just drive Jason to the next location and then laugh insanely at anything he does or says. That's just not entertainment in my book. Besides Suzi, John, Ortis and the gadgets themselves deserve more respect then this. They made the show what it was. A success. And don't forget that Channel 5. If this format tripe is on again, I won't be watching. Besides I turned off on the second episode onwards.

    I really liked Otis, John and Suzie although I have no problem with Polly, for me it was the previouse presenters that made the show!

    I have watched the gadget show since the 2nd series, its been my fave show for many years. However i cannot be botherd with this new version, Suzi and john were brickwork for me, you cannot just dump them and then expect the masses to be pleased. the new format is poor. we want a UK based show. look at all the negative reviews Channel 5, dont lose your best show!!

    I want the normal gadget show back. I don't like this one because when they are in the UK they show you much better tech than they do on the gadget show world tour.

    im sure polly is a really nice girl, and we all have to learn our trade somewhere, but i find her presenting so fake and forced its untrue, and it doesnt take a genius to work out she has no passion or idea about gadgets, i dont know about other viewers but i find myself cringing watching it, like watching a friend who thinks they can sing well, but really is bad. the old crew were much better and had a genuine passion for gadgets, and you believed what they were telling you unlike the new format, such a shame a good program has changed into a hour of cringe worthy t.v.

    This is the first series I've seen and I thought the presenters were excellent. I reckon the one with hair is jaw-dropping-beautiful. The competition seemed a bit dodgey though @ £2.00 a text message. Yikes!

    It's such a pity that the once exceptional Gadget Show has turned into a self gratification circus for Pollyanna and Jason. The loss of Suzie, John and Ortis and their consummate professionalism have soured my once love of this exceptional show. Why have you changed the format of something that has worked for years, and would continued to have provided superb information to the gadget lovers at large! Channel five, you have sadly lost an avid fan.

    will you still be back in autumn when currys/pc world decide enough is enough and pull the sponsorship of this obviously bad idea (with viewers, maybe everyone involved in TGS:WT think it's still great that you are haemorrhaging viewers like it's going out of fashion). Way to kill off your audience!!! Whoever thought this was a good idea needs to rethink and stop being so proud and admit it's wrong..

    I hope Susie and John and not forgetting Otis, how come nothing has been seen or said, at the end of the last series, in fact I think they talked about the Gadget show having a epic Gadget show with all the gadgets they all worked well together, how come Pollyanne has kept her job if susie has been finished, it seems as if it was all hush hush and I dont like that, why was it kept quiet. I have not enjoyed the world tour gadget show, we are not seeing the gadgets that we have seen in earlier shows, I am one gutted viewer, please put it back

    Polyanna is lovely to look at BUT Jason Bradbury is such a ........ ( looking for words not to be moderated) IDIOT! Please just get rid of him if you can't have the old format- I love Tech but he puts me off!!

    I do prefer the old format. John provided some really good information, and it seemed that the show seemed more complete.
