    ...they go and pull this "Cops 2.0" garbage in which a ridiculous overlay takes up the bottom third of the screen and provides us with law enforcement facts, trivia, a chance to play eyewitness, and an inside look at the G4 chat rooms (which seem to be populated by individuals fresh from their stint in the film Idiocracy).

    Just let us watch the damn show in peace! :thumbsdown: :thumbsdown:

    Of all the reasons to bash G4, defiling "COPS" is the one you pick? :D

    And worse, there doesn't seem to be a "***** at us" link on the G4 main page. :thumbsdown:

    Olivia Munn over Morgan Webb any and every day of the week.

    I can't believe no one has put their on air "personalities" thru any sort of TV school. They all talk over each other. It's pathetic.

    I had Attack of the Show on (in the background, not watching seriously) last night and those graphics at the bottom are HUGE and annoying. They have a bunch of tabs, like folder tabs... Why would you do that? You can't click them. Morons.

    According to my buddies who work in TV, those graphics are called "lower thirds", because they take up the lower third of the screen. They used to just be "bumpers" (more jargon), meaning right before or after a commercial, but now some stations, like G4, use them all the time. And add sound, which is especially annoying. Also, the lower thirds overlay the show itself's graphics. Xplay definitely has this problem now. The lower thirds block the info on the bottom of the screen.

    Let's face it, G4 sucks. Pretty much, I just leave it on to look at Olivia Munn's boobs. :)

    Wait, G4 is still in business? I figured after the thousandth stupid move they had finally driven away all the viewers and advertisers. Guess not.

    My cable network (CableOne) removed them from the lineup... the removal just happened to coincide with their "in-depth" coverage of the porn convention in las vegas (the one that goes on the same week as some computer geek convention).

    Sometimes I really miss being able to watch G4... <grin>

    Attack of the Show with Olivia and Layla Kayleigh are the only reason to watch G4.

    Both girls really seem to be proud of their cleavage ;)

    Layla scares me a little bit... She's just too taut, too bronzed, and... Oh, yeah, her huge fake balloon-like boobs are kinda gross. But she's not exactly ugly because of 'em!

    Anyone seen Code Monkeys on G4 yet? My DVR recorded an episode but since G4 has terrible guide data, my DVR actually recorded some anime show instead. Code Monkeys seems like it might be good, but hey, it's G4, so it probably won't.
