I dont know how many older geeks/nerds/tech junkies/ otakus, we have here that know this channel. But for those that do if you haven't heard they are completely remodeling the channel for older guys in a gq-esque format. A lot of the articles I have read say its not going to be as bad as it sounds, but with the cancelling of attack of the show and x-play how is that not bad, these two shows branded the channel itself. The question is how do you feel about this change in something that has been some what a geek routine for over a 1000 episodes of comi-cons and anime conventions, video game reviews and women in scantily clad clothing, does it suck are you looking forward to it?
And if this subject has been brought up before I apologize.

Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa. Whoa. They're cancelling X-Play and AToS!? Why!? You'd think they'd stop showing crappy reruns of Cheaters and Cops instead! Show some more Ninja Warrior! Put Unbeatable Banzuke back on the channel! Hell, Judgement Day? Arena? Cheat? Filter? I mean, c'mon! They've made a crapload of stupid decisions in the last half decade or so. Now they're just going too far with that. Give me back my Code Monkeys! Put on some MXC, that'd be fantastic on that channel! GAH. Well, y'know what? I guess a channel that makes stupid decisions like that doesn't need my viewing. I love what G4 used to be back when it was G4TV, but ever since they got rid of the "TV" part, it's just died. I kinda hope they fail. Maybe they can see how awesome they used to be compared to how cruddy they are now.

Well heres the thing if you think about it like this while consumerism for comics, video games, anime, cartoons, blah blah blah, has gone up we as a whole genre of people who love this stuff are still a minority, there are more men out there that want a show on how to pick up chicks or some crap like that, but it also has been stated that there will still be technology shows on, just not sure what and how much time they will take up. But yes hopefully they do fail a little I mean I don't like wishing that on somebody but I have been watching g4 since it first came on the air and I can't help but feel betrayed. Guess a different generation wants different things.

What about Spike? That's supposed to be another men's channel, although it's more about men's interests and not men's advice.
