    Gadget Show is so staged...

    Just like crappy Top Gear, all the challenges/features are so staged, do they think were idiots, why cant all the reviews/challenges be properly done, i dont think people want a false result each time.

    I missed this weeks. What happened???

    Thats one of the reasons I don't watch them too often. It's like they are on there just to have a laugh. I woulden't mind if it was done in private as a balanced performance test and then play it out on the tv.

    yes they do
    It's not a news programme
    stop watching

    This show went downhill from around the time Otis came in

    Top gear is hilarious!
    Most programmes are staged, its entertainment!

    Lighten up

    Do not even get me started on staged shows. English programmes i find are bearable and generally good fun. but American shows that are staged are just ridiculous! Jerry springer prime example!! just makes the nation look like a bunch of wild apes

    lol isnt all programmes staged

    Dont get me wrong, i dont mind if its staged on real facts/outcomes, but like tonight when they were racing, so ovious they slow down for one another, what are we fools.

    Its entertainment....

    Its called the gadget show ...lets see the 2 girlies with their gadgets buzzing..not the other 3 goons

    I always want to enter those competitions the free way obv which is post but by the time i find a pen and a notepad i miss a few details, this always happens so gave up

    i've stopped watching really, it used to be good product reviews and tests but now it just seems they're pushing products they've been 'asked' too.

    I gave up when they said mp3s sounded better than CDs.

    Yeh they get alot of stuff wrong on the show.

    I gave up watching when the DSG started to sponsor it, and they started having adverts every 8 minutes.

    And Otis started to get on my ****...

    It is all dumbed down junk TV.

    don't really know what your saying, but a lot off ppl go out and buy a particular brand on the outcome of the results. I can give it 'some' entertainment value

    I watch it to stare at Suzy Perry. Who's with me!?

    i,ll go along with that

    I can just about watch the show now but still end up fast forwarding through most of it, especially the bits with Neanderthal Bentley bumbling through... LOL

    Agree, the show has gone downhill, but what hasn't really? Product placement is all the rage and they need to pay the bills so vote with your remote.

    What and you wanted it to be a proper race? So you could buy the 'fastest' one? All of those things were pointless

    I think your missing the point, read it again but this time slowly, where did i say i wanted to buy it, that was a example anyway, i just want what we watch to be real results and not made up, and some people might have been wanting to buy on the outcome of the staged race, as there results are always on there outcomes of the tests, so if something comes out on top they give it the highest score, even if test was staged, do you get that now ?

    Ok Mr condescending, why do you need the results to be real?

    How will it ever be fair? They are two different people, different sex, different age, different fitness levels, different skill sets, using very different products. It's pointless but meant to be entertaining.

    Spoilers - a lot of tv is made up

    your missing my point completely, i aint going to explain what i mean again, maybe someone else can.

    Oh and gadget show is factual i thought.

    Impossible for the gadget show to be factual. Sponsorship means those products will always have a bias review.

    Also, Top Gear is crap.

    crap show which I watch in about 10 minutes once you skip the ads, the 10 minute competition plug and the boring unfunny chit-chat

    bit like top gear really.

    BBC CLICK is much better for proper gadget news / reviews.

    I can try in laymans terms (not trying to be rude, just simplicity is always better) but not sure if it's gonna get through to our friend.

    What I and maybe daytrader is saying is that it can be done on a more level playing field , we all know that it will take too much time and effort to get a perfect comparison.
    My initial point was that they should do it off stage with this 'leveling' in mind and then put on the presenters to flaff about.

    Sanch1983- "Spoilers - a lot of tv is made up" condescending comes to mind

    But you haven't explained why. You saw pretty much everything you needed to see about the items (cost, retailer, what they do etc.) The 'race' is just a bit of crap to make it 'entertaining'

    But hey if you don't like it that's fine, I was just offering an alternative opinion

    There just trying to be like top gear, loads of setups, when gadget show 1st came on tv it was actually good, but now its just false setups and results, i think most that have replied to this thread agree also.

    lol at tonights show, point proven, surround sound test on a racing track, lol, let me think how many people i know with a surround setup on a racing track, for instance bose uses your room wall for bass and depth, how can you demostrate that on tarmac, there tests are getting worse and to gimmiky, crappy show! rant over

    Mine cancelled itself after 26mins, perhaps telling me somthing........

    Love Top Gear and they have never tried to hide the fact they are scripted.

    Gadget Show does get on my nerves when they do a technical challenge and seem to intentionally make Suzi Perry win when she seems to know very little about the subject.
