The Yanks are going to screw up a perfectly good show : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Keep the original format! The first set of hosts were better. The Americanization / Holliwoodification of everything is annoying.

Come on, James, that's what we do: Screw up the world one TV show at a time. (At least, that's what we do since we got pitched out of Southeast Asia.) Here's a challenge, my Ameri-phobic friend: If you think we're a pain to live with (and hey, we are!), try to get by without us. Good luck.

Whaaaaa.... Don't watch it. I think you're just jealous. The rest of the world hates american success.

Whoa, Dan- you scared me there for a minute. I thought Rita was back. Whew. Close one. BTW, did anyone bother to mention who invented television? Just a thought.

-- Chip Haynes (, April 11, 2001.

I thought both guys did a good job hosting, as long as the show dosn't end up like Robotica!

Right on, Chipster!

A quick word of explanation (but it's certainly no excuse): Frank Zappa was one of the big investors and/or owners of Viacom, the company that, in utnr, owns MTV. That's how Ahmet, Dweezil, and the ever, um, lunar Moon Unit got jobs in The biz, as they say. With Daddy gone, but cetainly not forgotten, your guess is as good as my as to why Ahmet isn't the night manager at the Downtown Burbank Mickey D's. go to your Happy place: Ponder Robotica with Robert Llewellyn as the host. Isn't that better? And as for us mad-cap Americans- We might show up late for every war, but you can't deny we give it a snappy finish!

although horrified and shocked by the events in september in the USA, i find it inevitable that all right thinking peoples must mass to destroy the cancer that is the USA.
