    I realise the same thing too, which is unfortunate, I was hoping he would have also at least build a new set/ modify an existing one for this new show. Will keep watching a couple more episode and see.

    On a different note, I realize Twit have been canceling a lot of shows, plus they seem to have a high staff turnover, which is not a good sign at all.

    So what do you nerds think about Episode 1?

    To me Twit provides the best content vs all the rest (Cnet, verge, etc, etc) but as you said their staff always jumping ship and head to other bigger networks..

    They cancel a show once the viewership is low... people won't advertise on low viewership shows..

    Rich people seem to never have enough money they have to dig up old brands to draw a crowd. This is a strong nostalgia move. Its like nintendo bringing back the nes.

    There has been a lot of, for want of a better word, drama the last year and a bit. It started around the time they changed host and format for their Tech News Today podcast. That is also about the time they started taking ads from mattress and razor blade makers. The core shows are still doing fine but as you said, they've killed a bunch of others and lost a LOT of talent.

    If I were a cynical man, I'd say The New Screensavers is a nostalgia play to rope in a new audience. I don't know what their engagement numbers are like but they must have lost the good will from some long-time viewers who were all too aware of some of the behind-the-scenes goings on. Still, I wish them luck. If they can recapture just a bit of the magic of the old show, good on 'em.
