It's true. I'm too embarrassed to watch.

This pales next to Adam's thunder (wait, can sound pale?) but I was on GamePro TV back in the day. Just a photo and voice recording of me saying how I beat the high score on some Genesis game. About ten years after the fact a co-worker called saying they had just seen me on TV.

Re: One of our very own administrators is famous!

Back when I lived in Florida, my best friend and I were obsessed with GamePro (the magazine and the comics they'd collect every once in a while). I stayed over at his house the night before GamePro TV was scheduled to debut. A promo in the magazine told us which station in Jacksonville was airing it, but it didn't list a time, so we got up at something like 6:00 AM and waited for it to come on. And waited. And waited. And waited. We called it around 2 or 3 PM, crushed and deflated. No GamePro TV.

Whatever UHF affiliate down there carried it waited a couple of weeks before airing the show, and golly, did it not turn out to be worth the wait. However, I do still say "goin' to SWAT World!" to my buddy Alan every once in a while as the dumbest inside joke ever, and "Brennan" remains my nickname for grating California surfer types. (The show was less awful once it was just J.D. Roth hosting, but man, Brennan was just the worst.)

We're kind of GamePro brothers, though! My name was printed in the cheat codes section at least once. (I know I was in there for Wayne's World for the SNES, but I can't remember if that was it.) I would just copy Game Genie codes off Prodigy and snail-mail them to the magazine. How 1993 a sentence is that?

That host gave hope to all of the other children that dreamed to be on tv one day. He was the main reason why I wanted to stop watching the show.

Ok I watched the start of it. Adam had the most personality of the 3 kids on that show. Way to go.

I love how Danielle's name tag has her name shortened to Dan'lle.

Without even seeing this thread, she agreed with a bunch of you guys!

Couldn't stomach the host. Thought he was surprisingly rude.
Thought I was the only contestant with any personality.
Thought I was adorable (obviously!) and loved my enthusiasm whenever I'd answer a question, even when I was wrong (Donald Kissinger!).
Didn't think I did nearly as badly at the fire drills as I remembered.
Thought I would've won if not for the fire drills.

Okay, I don't know what the hell is going on, but every video I click on that site loads and plays just fine, EXCEPT for the video everyone is talking about here. What the ever-loving fuck....

Are you trying to watch the video at work? Sometimes hardcore porn videos are blocked. Although Adam has the best member...I mean "personality" of the group (MMF, btw).

No, I'm at home with an excellent internet connection and no problem watching anything else on any site. That video will simply not load.

dailymotion is blocked at my office. I can't explain why it would be blocked on your home internet connection, though.

Cookies, or something.

It's not blocked. The site comes up fine. I can click on and play any other video the site contains, including other Make The Grade videos. This particular video will not load nor play.
