Where are all of these complaints coming from - Wimpy British people? The show is just fine!

Hey guys, the show was okay! I have watched the show from the time it first came on in the U.S. and it is still great - The new host is good too - The problem is that we have become so used to this show being hosted by Robert from the beginning that any change will be a shock! (Like when Coy and Vance took over for Bo and Luke) The new guy is genuinely funny, he had a great rapport going with the special "expert" for the punkin chunkin episode and they were hilarious! Much better than any of those stupid British Guest Experts. The music WAS sorely missed, and I think the editing on the new shows seemed to lack some of the "excitement" or "urgency" of the Brtish version, but I couldn't put my finger on what was lacking. Still the best show on TV!!!!!!!!!!

Ya we can see your a yank with absolutly no tatst althought i think we should give the new animator a chance it lacks team spirit for them it is a job not something they do for fun. If we could at least see that there having fun. Talk about a funny animator he's no good at all. Althought i cannot ignor the fact that he can only improve since he caan't get lower

Have a look at the response to "What a bunch of babies !" on this forum that reads .......

Sue, I think you have got your knicker's in a little bit of a MAJOR twist baby. The reason for this is that George has only so far ever been seen once in the UK when he appeared as co-presenter with Robert and Cathy for the Trans-Atlantic challenge that you have not yet seen in the States. The main proportion of all the critic's are in fact Americans. I take it from all the sudden critism that the new Junkyard series has begun on your side of the pond hence all the critics on YOUR side. If it makes you feel any better in fact we Brits don't actually mind George and felt that he was typical American and added to the show. What do the rest of you guys in the USA think ? ..... well the forum speaks for itself don't you think.
