Episode 2: Iceland

Sorry, this episode is no longer available to watch on Demand 5.

Find out why

This week’s action-packed hour of consumer gadget-testing takes place in beautiful Iceland. Jason and Pollyanna begin their journey on the ocean to test out the latest binoculars as they search for Moby Dick on a whale-watching tour.

Back on dry land they utilise the country’s natural beauty to test two pieces of geothermal technology. They also head to the Thingvellir National Park to get to grips with two unmanned aerial vehicles with built-in cameras as they attempt to capture some breath taking scenery.

In Reykjavik city centre, their gadget-testing is all about ‘bang for your buck’. Jason and Pollyanna take a look at three of the best budget laptops around and put them through their paces, before spending a day at the impressive Verne Global Data Storage Centre to compare the fast-growing cloud storage solutions.

Despite the tranquil landscape, Iceland gets its high-adrenaline fix in the form of off-road driving, which involves drivers climbing hills at an almost vertical angle! Pollyanna and Jason laugh in the face of danger and in true ‘Gadget Show’ style mod-up their very own radio-controlled off-roader and travel to a volcanic mountainside to race against the full-size mean machine known as ‘Turfer’.

    While i have no objection to big offroady type vehicles i must say that the example shown here is not what i'd call tech. it's gota V8, 4 wheel drive and a crash cage all 20th century and not exactly subtle or new. Was there something innovative in it's design? IF not why bother.? And an RC car race uphill with such a beast was filler . Made me think that you didnt have anything more worhtwhile to show and made it up on the spot. As for the rocket pack for the rc car,,,you would have been better with an Estes solid fuel pack, at least it would have burned longer.

    Nice to see that the sound engineers were sober for this one..They must have been smashed for the first episode that was rendered unwatchable. I like the new format but feel that there is a lack of viewpoint with just two presenters. I miss John Ortis and Katy. Dont miss the team challenges tho. I found only one in five or so of those to be of interest.

    I have just watched my recording of channel 4s Gadget Man with Stephen Fry and it leaves me with one comment, Long live the Gadget Show. If that is Channel 4s attempt then they may as well throw their footage in the bin. It was a cross between Top Gear and the Antiques Road Show. It did not seem like new technology to me , it seemed like i had seen some of it before somewhere ?. Sorry if you don't agree but channel 5 + Jason and Polly beat channel 4 attempt any day

    Please have other presenters i loved to old format the new one has got enough --- i dont know. DOESN'T FEEL like gadget show. And that is the sad truth. Please we all want old gadget show back!

    I have been a devoted gadget show watcher ever since it started and have also been to gadget show live. This series is the worst ever! It pains me to say this as i love the program so much!! Channel 5 listen to the voice of the people read mine and all the other posts here - BRING BACK THE OLD PRESENTERS AND FORMAT!!! Jason is a legend as was Suzy and John Bently in his own way. Pollyanna was only every brought in as a bit of eye candy, which i didn't mind when we still had the other presenters who actually cared about their technology. I'm sorry but i get the impression that Pollyanna just wanted to be famous and the Gadget show is the only thing she could get on (after her failed attempt on The X Factor/Pop idle). Sort it out!! Channel 5 bosses - Show you listen and post a comment!!!!!!

    I've stuck with GS since day one but all the running about and screaming without the studio analysis is a bit like having a pudding for every meal without the main meal...fun but unfulfilling.

    Rubbish show as always since the axing of the other presenters. Israel's episode seems perfectly timed to show in tandem the appalling human rights record of that country, hope Emperor the bald, Jay and Death and Destruction, Polly had a great time over there sipping on their cocktails. Anyhow, it seems my preys have been answered, I am over to Channel 4, watching Stephen Fry's Gadget Man, and BBC 1 to watch Click, Toodaloo.

    slightly odd without the other presenter ........... love the gadget show and am not saying that the new episode are bad but they just dont have what the old shows used to have ......entertainment............ still realy love the show though

    In television some shows are entertaining and some are factual, very few achieve both. The Gadget show has failed dismally at achieving either, it,s more about shouting and screaming and "wow" and "amazing" than actual or factual content. if you are trying to be informative about gadgets then test and research the items or contents properly before subjecting the audience to pathetic "look at me " tests! This show would be more suitable for milkshake - kids programming on a Saturday morning keeping them bemused whilst I have a lie in!

    I,ve just Googled Biolite and their web site came up. I would prefer mixed testing from the studio only going outside if required. Jason, Pollyana are ok leave them alone, Yes it would be nice to see the others back but there is a recession. It's a pity the Government does not take a leaf out of Channel 5's book and cut 60% of the Mps after all we are all in it together. If some of the Mps lost their jobs then the Government may take unemployment more seriously.

    Oh No The Gadget Show

    I'm totally in agreement with everyone that hates this format. Now presented by Mr Potato Head and Ragdoll Pollyanna. Channel 5 listen - You got this wrong big time when you got rid of the proper presenting skills of Suzy, Jon & Oaty Biscuits. BBC is launching a gadget type show with Stephen Fry, looks more fun and entertaining!!

    The show is now very very very boring.... Who are you doing this for yourselves or viewers... Come on Channel 5 the only show you had worth watching and you had to go and spoil it WHY. Please bring back the old format. Please. I cant watch this no more.

    Just watched the repeat, my family don't consider GS first choice viewing, so watched Hammond Monday. 34K for a hex copter? What planet are they on? I can get you better for 5K which would have done the same job, but returned to home when Jason lost the signal. 14K buys 25% better (8 props), programmable to fly multiple set way points, video set GPS locations and not crash. Who researches this stuff?

    Until the All New Gadget Show no-one wants to watch is the Good Old Gadget show everyone loved, I won't be watching again. I almost miss waiting days for it to be made available to watch online...... ok, maybe not..... If the old format is gone for good, best axe the show entirely instead of what there is now.

    Maria Just finished watching tonights show, it's so boring now with Jason and Pollyanna it needs the others back to bring different opions about the gadgets they are testing, all this two do is agree with one another.Bring back Suzy Otis and John I would not be watching the show from now on .

    Please, Please bring back Suzy. I was a loyal and longtime watcher but without Suzy the program presenting has taken a massive dive, Jason is ok in small doses but he does forget that he is displaying the tech and not his prowess and sorry, but Pollyanna is not a touch on Suzy.

    I have to agree with the last comments the producers have got the all new gadget show format totaly wrong with the current presenters I used to love the show I wouold watch it twice a week but not now........why send theses two all around the world interviewing each other I soon got bored with them, the show needs the others back...

    Why does the programme producer choose to promote a 'gadget', the biolite, when it is not available. And it appears the company's website is not available ??

    Gerry... Always love watching the Gadget show...But the show is spoiled now by going to just Jason and Pollyanna..found myself getting fed up watch these two mucking around then they interview each other about the products....so boring...it's all about them look at me I'm so good..NOT...
