Hey you British Crybabies - George is now better than Robert!

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

It is about time someone said it - George is a better host than Robert. Robert was good, but George is funnier. His commentary on the sideways-mounted-motorcycle-engine / dune-buggy was awesome! You British people can go watch "A fish called Wanda" again or "Billy Elliot" if you want more unfunny homemade stuff!

I'm an American, and George stinks. Bring back Robert.

They have switched focus from the actual engineering and construction, to George and his idiotic noises and comments.

I'm going to start recording the show, so I can skip over any scenes with him in them.

I think they actually put George on this show to weed out the true scrap building junkies from the weenie whinning babies who care more about the host. Whahhhhhhh whah blah blah. Heard it all before.

Well said!!

Stop the whining and get back to the show. You people make it sound like there's 45 minutes of George every episode.... this is not the case.

For all you Brits out there, don't think that all Americans are this whiny. Really, we aren't this bad....

Hey McNeil, do you watch the same show.. or are you on crack? George is everything thats wrong with American TV... Thanks For Wasting My Time....

Wallace, or are you on crack? George haters are everything thats wrong with American TV... Thanks For Wasting our Time.... you should go watch battle bots...after 20 minutes with thier hosts, you'll be right back!

And Rosanne Arnold is sexier than Pamela Anderson.

McNeil, pass whatever you're smoking over here. Considering that the US series has yet to be shown in the UK, I would guess that most of the posts you are seeing re: George sucks are in fact being written by a North American audience.

almost everyone has said george sucks!.....who cares what he does in his spare time!?

bring back robert the show is not about sound efects it is about bulding things out of SCRAP.

-- oliver shoesmith (olivershoesmith@aol.com), January 19, 2001.

Hey wait a minute Oliver... speaking of sound effects and silly noises, does anyone but me remember that Robert did the same thing ALL THE TIME?! Good Grief, how soon we forget! In fact, I seem to remember a thread on this board way before George was on, where everyone RAVED about Robert's funny noises!
