I enjoyed watching call for help.
I would record em and FF to parts that were on interest to me. With the new name are they not taking calls any more?
Ill tune in and see how the show is. Will take some time getting used to it. The other people on call for help made it what it was and with out mike and amber I wonder how good it will be.

I have a photographic memory, trouble is most times the lens cap is on.

Strangely I think that we may get the short end of the stick in canada.
It's shot in HD and it will probably not broadcast here in that format.
Leo will bring along all his usual contributers so it will be hard for it not
to be interesting. As far as I know they will still be taking calls from viewers.
It would be nice if they would be on discovery or some other HD channel as
I would like to dump G4Techtv. Aside from leo, and olivia munn I am tired of
their content. Repeatx-play is even getting old.

I miss the original show with Kevin Rose, and the 2 other guys and the girls. Kevin has since gone on to bigger things

Kevin Rose was never the host for Call For Help. Leo hosted it the most followed by Chris Pirillio. Kevin Rose hosted the other computer show called The Screensavers with many hosts but Leo still hosted that show the most if I recall correctly. The Screensavers is now Attack Of The Show.

Q: The lovely Amber MacArthur

I will give it chance to the new show. Beside it's a timer on my PVR.

Maybe they will dig deeper into a subject hence the name The Lab.

lostcomma: If it's shot in HD, maybe it will be possible to download it thru a third party site for $2.

The only 2 show that I watch or "speed watch: are:
Attack Of The Show
Call for Help soon to be The Lab with Leo Laporte

Anyway, just a few days to see how well the transition was made. It should be warmer for Leo now

so now Leo doesn't have to fly from LA to Toronto, just LA to Vancouver? Seems like a good deal for him.

Leo's awesome. He taught me how to build my own computer.

Q: The lovely Cat Schwartz

or check on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Call_For_Help to get her name

jacksparrow: I think he meant it in a generic way by choosing hardware/software and not building a computer per say. It might be on ScreenSavers or the old Call For help(US). I don't recall for the Canadian version unless I missed that one.

ninty: It might be a shorter traveling time. He could save a few days over a year. He has a family and a young teenage daughter and may want to keep a eye on the young "bucks" that are near her.

how frustrating it is that the new show is being "produced in 16:9 High Definition" and no one will be able to see it (in HD). I'm sad
