Re: Report: G4 As We Know It Is As Good As Gone.

I just saw the G4 commercial on CNBC during a Shark Tank rerun. I'm surprised they're running TV ads this far in advance.

Can someone remind me what the 4 G's were? Games, Gear(?), ?, and ?

Apparently it originally stood for the four generations of video games (not consoles): text, sprites, polygons, and textures.

But of course that is ultra nerdy so they changed it to Games, Gear, Gadgets and... Gigabytes, because they needed another G.

Olivia Munn is apparently returning. She’s signing a multi year deal.

I never liked Munn. She was such a phony. Towards the end of her G4 run, they did an AOTS show at a convention. And the contempt she showed for all the attendees was obnoxious.

Re: Report: G4 As We Know It Is As Good As Gone.



Adam Sessler, Kevin Pereira, Olivia Munn, Morgan Webb, Kristin Adams, and Blair Herter reminisce on some of the finest moments of G4, Attack of the Show, and X-Play! The original cast of G4 is BACK under one basement (thanks Ron Funches!) for a Very Special G4 Holiday Reunion Special! Remember the Wonder Twins? Kevin's Hype Machine? Colonel Duckbucket? Well, you're going to LOVE this totally safe, nothing nefarious happening here reunion! So pull up your gamer chairs, ready your Buster Sword and enjoy some of our best (and worst) moments, Crazy Adam's Black Friday Deals, a surprise reboot of Around the Net, guest appearances from Chris Hardwick, Alison Haislip, Candace Bailey, and Jessica Chobot, AND a super-villain plot so diabolical, there is only one Superstar in the WORLD who can save the day.

This reunion special kind of puts a damper on the documentary that Chris Gore is working on. I wonder if it will still be finished? It was crowd sourced so I hope it will still come out.

I am SOOOOOOOOOO happy or him. The moment that it was announced that G4 was coming back, he launched a campaign to join G4.

His popular UpUpDownDown Youtube channel and podcast and his involvement with Wizards of the Coast, Penny Arcade, PAX, and Acquisitions Incorporated has cemented him in current video game and geek culture. He is an intelligent, witty, and funny man. Should be a good watch.

Yeah, Austin Creed/Xavier Woods is such a great fit. I won't lie, that Thanksgiving special was amazing, only trumped by the followup with Creed and voiceover by Peter Cullen.

My only concern is Vince somehow being involved with this (or is Creed given the blessing to do this separately?)

What does it mean that he's part of G4TV now? What is G4 now? Did they give any more details?

Anyone else bothered by Kevin's hair now?

Where were Sarah Lane and Layla Kaylee?

At least they didn't bring Alex Albrecht back.

I honestly didn't realize that was him, until I read you post.
I'm not bothered by it, I wish I still had that much hair.

Morgan & Olivia are both still gorgeous.

It might be a combination of that and his facial hair. He just looks off to me for some reason.

Layla Kayleigh got married again and is now Layla Warren. Still as beautiful s ever. She used to be more active on social media but she'll post a photo of her with her husband and kid every now and then.

Yeah, I follow a lot of the AOTS peeps on Instagram.

I didn't know Layla Kayleigh got married again. I listen to her ex-husband's radio show, so I do hear about her often though mostly with a negative connotation.

I'd just like to know how they filmed the reunion dinner with Covid protocols.

That was fun, though Funches' schtick gets old for me real quick. But it was cool seeing Adam and Morgan and Olivia and Kevin together again. I wish Alison Haislip had more airtime in the special--she was a favorite of mine.

He was completely absent from the special, wasn't he? I didn't even notice him in any of the clips/montages they played.

True, as are Holt, Haislip, Chobot, and Bailey.

I'm not sure what would work best for them in today's media landscape. I would be happy to watch the revived G4 if it bears some resemblance to the old show, but I really don't want to have to subscribe to yet another streaming service to see it, unless it's very cheap. If it's on YouTubeTV, for example, I'm out.

It was funny seeing how some of the old G4 has aged better than others. Has Morgan aged a day? They didn't mention Sara Jean Underwood unless I missed something.

If they did this a few years ago, Sara probably would've done the show but her and boyfriend enjoy getting away from the rat race in the Pacific Northwest building unique tiny houses. She's still very active on social media and I got her 2020 signed calendar.

They definitely didn't shy away from showing her in the clips, so it's not like she's shunned or anything.

Sara Jean Underwood was easy on the eyes, but she couldn't read off prompter to save her life. She had so many flubs on her reads.

That was part of her charm.
