    The shows are really good. I think the producers do really well to aim the show at a variety of viewers, young and old alike. The challenges are meant to be snapshot of what the gadgets can do and not a full spec of them! I agree with CyberGW on this point. The presenters all do a great job in showing and staging the Tech in a none geek way which is the only way to get more veiwers to watch the show. The Gadget Show, long may it and its presenters live. :0)

    This used to be a good program when it first started. Over time however, it has become sillier and less about gadgets than about false competition between presenters in increasingly irrelevant, false and pointless challenges. A while ago I stopped watching the whole program but recorded it and skimmed through to the bits where there was genuine gadget content that matters to the average person. Now I can't even be bothered to record it!!!

    The Blue Peter style of presenting now gets in the way of interest in the gadgets and science behind them. Suggest reprofile to target audience older than age 12!

    why are the moderators removing a load of comments, it's the truth that the gadget show is shockingly bad now.

    change the format of this show before its to late unless it already is.used to really like this show but it has turned into a kiddies challenge show.trendy graduate production team that is trying to clone top gear.stick to what the program is called ( THE GADGET SHOW )and as for the duration of the show, take out ads constant recapping and whats coming next the show is less than 35 minutes long, 25 minutes plus wasted. pathetic.

    Dont want to sound like a spoil sport but Falcon could have been beaten by many other pieces of tech (nitro jet would have destroyed it) (most advanced UK tech (Apache Gunship would have located and got to target in twice the time). Horse could have been beaten by almost any other fast tech. (7k for kart could have bought super bike). Cat hat was poor. Scaring Aled was biased towards the animals (told him it was tech and couldnt hurt him!!!!) Wholw show was very waek. Get some proper tech and stop mucking about trying to entertain kids. Ur turniung into another top gear!!!!!!

    Challenges boring and rather pointless, they do not show the tech in its full light in most cases, plus you can test the gadgets without being too childish, unless you are trying to get picked up for a saturday morning kids lineup? That would explain that side of it, you can have fun with gadgets whilst still be seriosu about it, you guys are the only commercial gadget show, altough i am addicted to BBC Click much more, were not all dumb children and there is just not enough REAL tech stuff in the show these days, the odd bit here and there if you are lucky, but you spend too much time recapping what you did a few minutes ago and what is coming up in the show, thats time wasted that could have done an in depth review on a new gadget, would have been much more useful, i think the show is running out of steam, a sad thing as i like the presenters, although i think now with Ortis and Polly its just too big for the sort of show it is, you do not need that many presenters in all honesty, oh and whats with a "latest tech show" not being in HD yet???? Is that not a little stupid? I think the directing/writing/production team needs to be re-vamped, get some real people in there who know what a tech show is supposed to be... Nothing against the presenters, must say that!

    Future tech in development -we need more information of this Tomorrows world used to be a great show but there is nothing like this now, .....so present day gadgets and gadgets of the future it has to be, the challenges are getting a little boring now, may e a challenge every couple of shows will be fun but not every show

    I actually like the challenges as it shows of the tech but in a more interesting way than: this does this and this does that. Come on, it's a lot funnier thsi way to!

    I also think you should get back to the gadgets and do less challenges for a while anyway.

    You guys. Since when do tarantulas SPIT venom? Get your facts straight. The FLICK urticulating HAIRS. Stick to gadgets, and leave the animals to Chris Packham.
