    While I got into the show at such a late date (ie. who's Scot?), I did enjoy it for as long as it was on. And while there have been some really funny episodes with Tina, Laura and Geoff, it's this one I'll remember the most. You see while the first part of the show was a review of the "Year That Was" in video gaming, it's the final few minutes that I enjoyed the most.



    The cast joins together one last time for a clip segment of highlights of the past four seasons of the show set to a song sent in by a viewer. The song ends with a shot of the entire cast and crew (watch for cameos by the people who bring you "Drunk Link" and "I Need Drink Girl") singing along to the song. While it's sad to see them go, I felt I was losing a few friends that I had just got to know well.



    It's fitting that the show went out the way it did. With so many shows ending horribly, it's good that G4tv.com went out appropriately. It wasn't silly, it wasn't serious...it ended by reminding us about the good memories we had while watching the show.



    Goodbye Tina. Goodbye Laura. Goodbye Geoff. We'll miss you three together.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof
      Tina intros the show by saying that the show aired 169 episodes. The show actually aired 173 (a fact later confirmed through pop-up trivia during a rerun airing for G4's G4rewind in 2008). It is unknown how Tina or the writers lost 4 episodes, for even if you take out the first/pilot episode there are still 3 episodes missing.

  • NOTES (3)

    • "Goodbye G4tv.com" was written by Jonathan Mann. He was a Freelance Composer for G4 and wrote songs for Attack of the Show and X-Play including the X-Play Musical episode.

    • The episode was taped on Friday, December 16, 2005.

    • The final five minutes of the show was a music video created of clips from the previous four years set to music created by a show viewer. At end of the song the cast and all the crew sang along. The lyrics can be found in the episode recap.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Laura: The Spike Awards liked it.

      At the time, the Spike network was geared towards the same young male demographic as the G4 network. While some consider them to be competing networks, Laura may have brought it up as a dig to G4 cancelling G4tv.com. It is also important to note that Geoff Keighley also hosted a show on Spike called Game Head.
