Hosts UK vs. USgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
I've not yet seen the U.S. version of the show? When does it aire in the U.S. and who are the American hosts? It'll be tough to match the writing and wit of Krieten. I love his comment about one of the teams problems with the Steam Car. "They seem to have an ongoing, er, Non-going problem". It's jewels like this that make the UK. version so enjoyable. I hope the U.S. version follows the same format of combining the humor & the educational/historical montages with the competition. Steve.

I agree and encourage TLC to use the UK hosts for the US show they've done a marvelous job, and since the US team had to deal with things UK'ish, its only fair that the host-actor-author Robert Llewellyn and TV producer Cathy Rogers discover the intricacies of an American junk yard.

Yeah- US hosts would most likely suck. The UK hosts had a good sense of humor and i think all of us americans could benefit if theyre the hosts.

I agree. I do not think I could watch the show with any other hosts, much less Americans. I think Robert Llewellyn is a very big part of why I watch the show, and I think I have a little crush on his co- host. I really don't think that an American host would have the right attitude or appeal.

Who needs an American host? How could us Americans not love that funny English accent. Besides, you'll never laugh when an American host says the word "Aluminium".

Don't even think about changing the hosts! Being from Oklahoma, it's a real kick to hear someone that talks funnier than I do. ;)

Spare the rod spoil the child... Change the host kill the show! Keep the UK host, I can't think of a single American personality that would combine the education, comedy, and presentation of the original. The host accounts for al east 25-40 percent of the show. Thanks
