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.
Disclaimer: This topic probably sucks. It has most likely been asked about many times already. I suck. I am using up some of the precious finite space on the internet to bring up this topic. I should get off the internet. The internet is not to be used to share information or geek out with fellow nerds. The internet only exists to allow know-it-alls to ridicule others. Again, I suck.
" 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.
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.

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 Just me bein me. "Nah dude it's alright. People like to police the internet way to much since they have nothing else better to do.
"I dont recall Jeff on AOTS, I do remember him on XPlay though. "
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.
Couldn't find it on youtube, but this was another great moment

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 ;)
