All Nerds Sighed tonight and It was heard around the world….except the offices of G4
This is MY review of the finale of these 2 great Shows and In my opinions only bits and pieces were great but were lacking. Back in November G4 announced they were cancelling these 2 shows to rebrand the network into more of a man’s show and call it The Esquire Channel (Wasn’t that a women’s magazine?)
First off X-play Finale was Pretty Good, Morgan Webb (Very Beautiful and talented) and Blair Herter (I Met Him! Before he Married Jessica Chobot- Lucky Man!) Now all shows were recorded in advance and as far as I can tell they stopped recording Shows just before thanksgiving and were airing alot of repeats except for specials like top 100 video games of all time where they briefly commented on the fact they were cancelled and couldn’t comment more due to legalities. Last Episode was pretty good But I should have been unscripted and Live, They are all respected adults. Was sad to see them go!
Now there is NOTHING on TV for Nerds or any videogame enthusiast to watch.
AOTS FINALE – Very sad and I found myself a little Teary I Admit when Candace started to Cry. It would’ve been nice if her, Sara, and Matt had it also unscripted and live rather than record it month’s earlier. But unlike X-play AOTS Rarely commented on the end or even when the finale was but aired Repeats. I was Disappointed when I tuned in after thanksgiving to catch Chris Hardwick of Nerdist (Great Guy met Him three Times!) Doing best moments of the show and NOT Candace and Sara which I felt was a Jip.
TV has officially sunk to new levels but with repeats of Knight Rider, Cops and ReRuns of Campus PD and now loosing these 2 shows I feel they are loosing Millions of viewers by these stupid moves. In my opinions They Say hey this show should get X amount of viewers and if that show gets just 1% less they want to axe the show. But I did Like how X-Play and AOTS Got the entire staff involved in filming and the final good-byes.
You Will be Missed Morgan Webb, Sara Underwood, Candace Bailey, Jessica Chobot, Matt Mira, Blair Herter!!
May you all Find a future working somewhere great together because your a GREAT TEAM!!
