So I was watching a random quick look, can't remember if it was a new one or an old one, and Jeff mentioned something about the clothes he had to wear while he was hosting Attack of the Show.  That caused one of those wierd connections in the dark recesses of my brain where I vaguely began remembering Mr. Jeff Gerstmann hosting a few episodes of Attack.  I can't remember how many years ago it was, but I've found myself strangely desiring to see at least a few moments of those episodes again. 
 
Does anyone know if any clips or (god forbid) whole episodes of those shows are archived anywhere?  I scoured Youtube for awhile with no luck.  Just wondering if anyone has seen them in the wild or if Jeff or G4 have ordered their destruction...never to be spoken of again. 
 
Any help would be appreciated.

@Irishranger: No, no. Old videos of the staff are very welcome here, also, be sure to ask which one is the hottest, just so you know, stay cool with the giantbomb crowd.

It was during the period of time when Kevin Rose left and they were looking for a new co-host and in the interim they had a bunch of guest hosts. Jeff was one of them.

Yeah I remember that. Even I tried out for the co-host part. It disappointed me because they only had one guest co-host from that audition and they specifically said no girls. Well, you can guess who became the new co-host.

@Metal_Gear_Sunny:
Didn't think it would be "mind-blowing"....just bored and would like to see them again.  If not for anything else...at least the nostalgia factor.

what was with the self-deprecating disclaimer?

#10 Posted by evildeadron (830 posts) -

besides, why do you need some old AOTS videos when you can have these

The old AOTS where Jeff guest co-hosted for a week while they were looking for a replacement for Sarah Lane or whoever from TSS was the first time I had become aware of the dude or the old On The Spot (which they showed live during Thursday's live show -- trippy). He was a great, hilarious host and I figuered there had to be something to this 'OTS', so I checked it out and found Carrie, Greg, Ryan, Alex, Brad, and the awesome Rich Gallup. So I watched that for some time and read a few articles and left a couple comments, then Gerstmanngate. The rest is history. 
 
When was that? 2004?
 
edit: Oh yeah. Man, Kevin Rose was awful. Jeff and Kevin P worked out pretty well I thought. But I guess Jeff's boobs weren't the type the producers were looking for.

Just my way of covering my ass from the stupidity of the internet.  Seems like any time I ask something and don't include the disclaimer the first five responses are always, "OLD TOPIC" and "lrn how 2 use a srch fnctn, dubass" 
 
LOL

yeah... that seemed completely unprovoked, too... 
 
 
EDIT: Ryan Davis without a beard is not a Ryan Davis for me.

@evildeadron: damn Ryan can sing, who would have thought.
#17 Posted by zepp (230 posts) -
@evildeadron:  Wow, Ryan looks so different! This stuff is great by the way. I'm a recent GB convert, I only found out about the site and the podcast this past summer. I've been trying to piece together the GB staffs past, ever since.

Nah dude it's alright. People like to police the internet way to much since they have nothing else better to do.

That's not the first time Jeff was in X-Play. Back then X-Play was called Gamespot TV. Check Greg Kasavin in there also. 
 
  
   
 
2:29 For Kasavin 
0:26 For Gerstman 
 
 
In Fact that X-Play interview is how I found out about Giant Bomb.

I actually really like Attack of the Show, but Direct TV recently took G4 off of their programing.
 
I mean, they only did have one worthwhile show on the whole network, but still, I'm a little pissed.
 
Sorry you view my post as wildly off-topic.

Truly these videos must be lost to the ravages of time.

I remember watching the episodes with him on it.  That was when AOTS was an alright show.  Now I could care less for it.

I think you were fine until that disclaimer. Just felt like you were exclaiming how much better a person you are than everyone else around here. But hey. You're just being you ;)

I fucking LOVE how fake Jeff is being. Only real-Jeff came through with the 'Oh that sounds legal.' comment.
