    I like the reboot attempt, only hope this move isn't like 10 years too late, watched it and Call For Help back in the days, there was not much competition back then, big difference now!
    The additional challenge, all of the original TSS crew have all grown up and moved on with their lives, although I gather a number of them have agreed to do an episode or two I seriously wonder if he can pull this off properly.

    Now if only some TV network would reboot the Star Trek series, that would make my year

    Thanks for the reminder. We are 2 hours ahead of them. So if it's says 5pm on their site, it's 7pm for us.

    Ok, so they record it live at 5pm our time, then air it at 7 or 8pm our time. Confusing much.
    Better they said they rebroadcast it at 7.

    They do it live at 5PM our time (EST), 3PM Pacific Daylight Time. After the show finishes, they edit out the unnecessary stuff, bloopers, etc. and package it for the podcast including any additional promotional material.

    By the way, they are having legal issues with NBC Universal who owns all the TECHTV trademarks. NBC Universal has issued them a cease and desist order to not use the Screen Savers name, but Leo decided to go ahead with it anyway. He even had his own lawyer in the audience to stop him from going too far.
