Kate was the original co-host with Leo on TSS.

Leo was the original host for CFH

So this show starts on Sunday then? Let's hope it's more in-depth like the screensavers used to be. I am not a big fan of CFH, it's so different with all the setup, the high emphasis on macs. Bring back the old banther between Kevin, patrick and leo and the girls of course

It starts on Monday at 6pm Eastern.

The old gang will never be part of the Lab as none of them want to go to Vancouver for a week a month to do a months worth of shows.

Is it just me or is the lighting terrible.

Extremely terrible. Unwatchable terrible.

Ordinarily he was insane, but he had lucid moments when he was merely stupid.

I am VERY disappointed , but I hope they do MUCH better down the road (hopefully well ahead of a cancellation decision)

The Lab is shot in HD. They have to convert the HD to SD in order for G4TechTV to air it. They had some technical problems in doing this which resulted in the darkness. During this month's shoot cycle (episdoes 16-30) they made some adjustments which apparently has corrected it.
Tip: turn up the brightness on your television set.

No. I change the channel.

I think you guys are overstating this a bit. yes, it's a little dark, but unwatchable? Hardly.

Can't say I am surprised. It was a lifeless show other than Leo. Some of the guests were good but I think it got way too 'geeky" for the casual viewer with an interest in technology. I enjoyed the phone-in section of the show where Leo really shines with his unique personality and knowledge.

The cast other than Leo were really weak. I don't expect a group of thespians but most of them were so wooden on camera you could harvest them for planking.

Hope he tries again..maybe someone in the USA will give him another shot. He's worth watching in the right environment.
