I was just wondering why everyone disses weveryone on the show, they make complaints that wont even do anything!I think it is pointless. Maybe if there was some good subjects to talk about.

There WERE good things to talk about. That's why everyone has gotten so worked up over the recent changes. This show (the "Original")was the highlight of the TV viewing week. They hooked us on it with the British version (aka Scrap Heap). Once hooked, we were all shocked and disappointed when "our" American version was aired, given that it departed so greatly from the original. Not only was the entire tone of the show changed, but the challenges were essentially repeats of challenges we had already seen! You can't feed someone filet for months, only to tell them later that it was only a temporary meaure until your hamburger got delivered.

Hey Caroline, Let's hear your idea's for some new show concepts. You'd be amazed at how many idea's have already been done and how many idea's that people come up with that sound good at first,but then after thinking of all the ramifications....just don't work. It's not easy....

We weren't complaining about anything until they made the new "american" episodes with George and built the same machines over again.
