BRING BACK ROBERT LLEWLLYN!!!!greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
I think that this american host is really bad. He tries to act like Robert Llewllyn but he isnt funny. Also i was on the british site for Scrapheap challenge and they had a story about an American version team called the Long Brothers defeating the British Megalomaniacs in some sort of Final Final after the Megs beat the brothers in arms. Yeah this american dude sucks, was the reason you got this american dude because Robert Llewllyn had scheduling conflicts because of Red Dwarf??????

I emailed someone at rdfmedia the scrapheap challenge site about Robert Llewellyn. And the guy there said:
"I think they were keen to have someone that it would be easier for Americans and Canadians to relate to"

Judging from the responses to George on this website alone, people "got" Robert just fine.

I think that the american host sould never have replaced good old Robert Llewllyn. I hope you are a producer reading this, so you can give your head a shake and realize what a stupid thing you have done.

I know that Robert Llewllyn affects an American accent (badly!) on Red Dwarf, but he's actually British, and also lives just 6 miles from my hometown!! My Fiance and I stopped for petrol on our way home from work (we commute) and there was Robert, filling up his Land Rover!
Turns out he's a regular at that petrol station, and also has a car with the reg KRY 10!!! He's a really nice guy who wants to live privatly.
I never spoke to him, but my Fiance did. Sadly, my Fiance didn't remember Robert's name when he spoke to him, so asked him if he was Kryten!!!!!!!! Robert took it in good grace, but get the feeling he'd like to be known by his actual name, instead of being referred to as the Android Cleaner!!
Since we live fairly local to Mr Llewellyn, it's only a matter of time before we see him again. Only next time, I'll speak to him and call him Robert Llewellyn, instead of Kryten!!! My Fiance kicked himself for not remembering Robert's real name!!!
