The highly popular tech blog Gizmodo takes a plunge into the deep blue sea of original programming with their first-ever TV special, "Gizmodo: The Gadget Testers", which premieres Monday (March 18) at 10:20 pm ET after the Top Gear season finale. In this pilot, the Gizmodo team put an assortment of doodads to the ultimate test in some slightly mad — sometimes death-defying — stunts.
Like Top Gear, Gadget Testers features a trio of adrenaline-junkies (alongside fourth host Veronica Belmont) engaged in a constant, primal state of oneupmanship. OJ Borg and Greg Foot represent Team Blighty, with Gizmodo editor-at-large Joel Johnson holding it down for the Yanks. For Anglophenia, we asked OJ, Greg and Joel to debate the merits of things that often function differently between our two nations — light switches, credit cards — but first, of course, all of our minds quickly went into the toilet, a.k.a. the lavvie, the can, the Porcelain God, that big white throne where humans spend much of their waking lives.
