I watched it, it was good, I think the most interesting part was that they went to a Miku concert, showed some of it and explained what Miku is

They've re-tooled the Gadget Show as the Gadget Show: World Tour. You can watch it here - http://www.channel5.com/shows/the-ga.../episode-1-429 but it's also usually repeated quite often through the week on the various 5 channels.

As a fan of the Gadget Show as was I'm a little torn. I liked the original format, but it had become a bit samey. The new format is both completely different but also weirdly the same - they still review stuff, for example, but now they do it in a foreign country.

As an anime and manga fan I'm also torn. it made me cringe a little. I don't like to be one of those sorts of people, but the mispronunciations really grated (check out Jase's pronunciation of moe - ouch). Considering they would most likely have had translators this seems daft. The bit where they shot the promo video was just horrible. But the robot fighting was cool, the miku hatsune concert was interesting and the car was awesome.

Overall worth watching if you're an anime fan to see what you think and worth checking out if you're a gadget show fan to see what you make of it.

I ain't watched the gadget show in a while... It's changes a bit! But I did enjoy watching it... Even though it was secretly for Miku....

Haven't watched the Gadget show for ages, I used to watch it all the time in it's original form. It got worse and worse though, I found it regularly insulting my intelligence like they'd shifted the target audience to 5yr olds. It got worse again when they added Ortis (?) et al. to the roster, soooo annoying.

I'll probably check this out later though.

Watching it now. One of the best ones I've seen for a long time but still annoying the hell out of me. The reviews are as pointless and arbitrary as ever I see.

I though the program overall was very entertaining and enlightening. I do agree about the reviews being out of place and quite odd, but as I'm in the market for a new camera that review interested me
