Ahh yes I remember coming home from secondary school in catching up with bad influence it was a great show, I really loved it, that and the mighty games master to which has never been matched for video gaming entainment , but do you all remember on a Saturday morning at about 10am the show "Cybernet"? Let me jog your memories ....

I'd love to see from our members here in Canada or U.S.A. and Europe what classic video games shows they watched back in the day.

The only one we had that I can remember is The Electric Playground . The show started as a weekly show in 1997 and eventually changed to 5 days a week right up until the end of last year, so about 18 years it ran for. You can see all the old shows on their site and they do still make content but you have to go online to see it now. Tommy Tallarico who is the guy that does that touring show Video Games Live was an early host of the show before he moved on to do his own thing. The show is pretty famous here in Canada but I'm not sure how well known it is in other parts of the world.

Here's the very first episode.

It seems to be very exclusive as I've never heard of before until now, will take a look, I love to see how these shows handled media and games and their exocution etc.

Yeah, I think it was broadcast in the US as well for the first few years but after that it was probably only available in Canada. Good chance most people haven't seen the show before.

That was the reasoning behind the thread, for use to see and experience those shows others grew up watching.. Fantastic share [member=4393]Shadowrunner[/member].
