Is there any chance of the english guy coming back?

The English guy...Robert, does scrapheap still. He never went away. There is just a new host named....George, who will be doing the American series. Two shows, two hosts+ Cathy!

I would like to say that Cathy has really created a great show. Creator, producer and host? Wow, quite an accomplishment. George is a bit of a minor annoyance, but it's still a GREAT show.

George has got to go, he is way to "in your face" and obnoxious. The English guy has a dry and sarcastic wit that is more entertaining.

Hey knock it off about George, the guy is funny and at least we can understand what he's saying. :D

Personally, I preferred Robert as well. I found him much more entertaining! George has his moments, but his style gets irritating after a while. I look forward to seeing the British episodes again.

George used the phrase "pie hole." I don't care for that kind of crude phrase. Robert says witty, amusing, intelligent things. I don't want to see JW degrade into blue collar, beer guzzling, WWF kind of style. In England there seems to be room for intellectual culture to be cherished. In America it seems everything has to be lowered down to the lowest common denominator, with the small exception of PBS and a few cable stations.

I agree with everybody about the show losing its charm due to its "americanization". But does anybody know if the powers that be are even paying attention to the obvious fan outcry to bring back the british host and flavor or are we wasting our time?
