Although I did like Robert Llewellyn, I think George Gray did a great job. It did take a lot of camp out of it, but in turn it helped maistream the series, which will keep it on the air longer. Besides, you can't say that George Gray did not make you crack a smile at least once?

I think the American host is good, just not for this show. Everyone makes him out to be a complete idiot, loser, etc... He just belongs on MTV or something.

I must say I don't like the American teams as much... it was way too competitive. I miss the Brothers in Arms, etc..

Way too competitive? But you like the Brother's In Arms? They only won because they are super-competitive. Lets face it, Americans like to "win" and they are more serious about "wining." I too like watching the brits with their funny accents and strange (to us) manerisms. Maybe it's because they remind me of Monty Python, but I was impressed with the American teams too. They had some good jokes and funny manerisms as well. For all we know, the brits may find watching the American teams more entertaining than we do? Lets don't be predjudiced against Americans yet, at least all their machines worked well. There will still be more british only shows next season for all you Yank haters.
