Unscrewed with Martin Sargent

Show Summary

Unscrewed With Martin Sargent reveals the pop culture side of technology: what's new, what's hip, what's hot. The ultimate showcase for the darker, funnier, sexier world of the modern technophile, Unscrewed With Martin Sargent pushes the boundaries of late night television. Hosted by the funny and forthright Martin Sargent from The Screen Savers, with his sidekick, the lovely Laura Swisher, this outrageous 30 minutes promises to go where no other show on television has gone. Sargent mingles with tantalizing guests in studio and remotely. Daring topics are covered by field pieces, product segments, hidden camera surprises, monologues and more, including Marty's now world-famous Twisted List. And let's not forget Girls Gone Wired, and Porn Tips from Judy the Porn Mom. Marty and his team are not shy and promise to uncover the most revealing stories behind technology.

This show began its life on May 26, 2003 on TechTV, the technology channel owned by Paul Allen's company Vulcan Ventures, and had studios in San Francisco. In early 2004, Paul Allen sold TechTV to Comcast, which merged the channel with its own video game channel known as G4. In May 2004, G4techTV launched, and production of all shows was moved to Los Angeles. Martin, Laura and associate producer Joey the Intern all made the move and started taping shows for the newly merged network in September.

On November 10, 2004, production of Unscrewed with Martin Sargent was officially halted. The last show was taped on this date and aired on November 29, 2004. G4techTV continued to play reruns until January 2, 2005.moreless
