    I voted for Screen Savers and Call for Help, but my true favorite was Game Spot (I think thats what it was on ZD Net)/Extended Play/X-Play.

    I wanted to list all the shows in the poll, but the bb only permits upto 6 options.

    Everyone is welcome to reply with their favorites, regardless if the program is listed in the poll.

    The very first archive.org page for zdtv.com lists these programs:

    Big Thinkers | Call for Help | Computer Shopper | CyberCrime | Digital Avenue | Fresh Gear | GameSpot TV | Internet Tonight | The Money Machine | The Screen Savers | Silicon Spin | ZDTV News | ZDTV Radio

    Today I listened to one of Leo's internet projects, "this Week in Tech", a radio show that is a lot like the old Screensavers program.

    Internet Tonight was my favorite, I think I even had a season Pass for it. Since I couldn't vote for it I just voted for Call for Help.

    The Screen Savers was THE show. At least we can still listen to Leo, Patrick, Kevin and the gang on their podcast...

    X-Play.

    I like Morgan Webb. And, the geeky guy is okay, too. He grows on you.

    Internet Tonight...but since it wasn't available, I voted Fresh Gear (back in the Jim Jauderback days, even), The Screensavers (and era except the last...ugh..), and Call for Help (with Leo...NOT Chris!).

    I watched my first TSS with Kate & Leo one night and sent off a comment via the website. Next night they read the comment online. I was hooked...

    EDIT: "online" should be "on the air"... My bad.

    Pretty much any episode of TechTv is preferable to most of the garbage they now have on G4. I used to watch TechTv all the time. They at least assumed most people were intelligent. G4 seems to put out shows that get more and more juvenile all the time. And now they're putting out shows that have nothing to do with computers or games.

    Icons. It's one of the few good shows on the channel. I never saw TechTV before the G4/Comcast buyout, but I've heard everyone's gripes about how it is now.
