I'm really getting hooked on this tech show on TechTV. I enjoy Leo and Patrick's banter and Martin is hilarious. Good tips and tricks too.

It is a great show.
I have been watching for years now. I did enjoy the Kate and Leo days more than I do now.
I taped it tonight because Geddy Lee and some other memebers of the rock band Rush are supposed to be on it.

I've been watching TSS for about a year, and at one point was really hooked. Ever since it went to one hour though, I just haven't been watching that much at all. I still do enjoy to watch it when I can.

The Screen Savers, Extended Play, Call for Help (Pirillo is so annoying that it compells you to watch), and Fresh Gear are all great shows.

Techno Games, Max Headroom, Thunderbirds, and their Anime shows all suck.

Average looking women but they do have a sense of humor.

I sometimes watch it, mainly for Morgan!

Martin's humor will get old very quick, at least it did with me.

Max Headroom should stay in the 80s

The Extended Play is ten times better than all Game Magazines. It actually shows what the games like and what actually is in the game!! Only problem with it is that tech TV show it whenever they like. It's so hard to catch the show. I always catch it when I go channel surfing......

Cool, I'm sure they'll be rerunning that one. I'll have to catch it.

I watch TSS in short bursts inbetween other things, and it's usually pretty cool, except for a few times recently when they've jumped on the Kevin Mitnick bandwagon.

I like the show, all though without a TIVO or VCR right now, I will be missing it each week. Because they have decided to get rid of the 7pm pacific replay of the show.

You have to get a TIVO. They plug the thing so much on the show. Their owner supposedly has a stake in TIVO.

Back in the days when it was ZDTV, it felt like the SS was on all day long. It probably was.

Microsoft has a stake in TiVo???

They have also reviewed ReplayTV, it's just that TiVo is better and has a huge community.

Ha! If Microsoft owned SS, I doubt there would be all that talk about OS X and Linux.

They do, or they are a partner. They have said it on the show before as a disclaimer. I was shocked too. I believe they are just a partner.

I did a quick search (techtv.com is down for me) and I found this which is from 6/2001

TechTV is owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allenís company, Vulcan Ventures.
