I like the new guy

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

I kinda liked the new guy. He was not as good as Robert Llewellyn but he kinda grew on me. He seems to know alot about the labor work involved and his jokes were just as cheesy as Robert's. He does not appear to be as intelligent as Robert, and therefore does not bring that sort of wit to the show. But all said and done, I think he is a pretty good, younger, American version of Robert. He is almost the same guy with less experience and no accent.

He was pretty bad in the first ep, somewhat better in the second. Let's hope he gets better as time goes on. After all, only 2 eps have been broadcast.

How about the UK broadcasts? Was Robert just a knee-slapping amazingly brilliant host from episode 1 season 1 or was he a bit rusty too at the beginning?

Keep in mind we have only seen UK season 3 in the states...

Not me. George blows. Please for gods sake don't make any more episodes with this no-talent lamer. Let him get a job on ESPN hosting extreme sports, talking about alley-oop fish brain rodeo grinds.

The new guy did seem genuinely excited during the drag race. And robert LLewellyn did crack just as many jokes. And the new guy seems to know what he is talking about when he interviews the teams and judges. I personally see very little difference between Gary (the new guy) and Robert (the old guy).

OOOPS the new guy's name is George. My mistake.

George is getting much better as the show continues I would have to say. Plus...he's a car guy, and I just connect there. Dont get me wrong though, Robert was good too.
