These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Broken Base: In the US, many will argue that Brooks Moore is the voice of the show and cannot stand the ninth and tenth seasons because of the different announcer and tenor to the show. Many were relieved when he came back and it went back to normal in season eleven. However a few aspects of those two seasons (including the announcer) ended up in the later sort-of-Spin-OffFactory Made.
The segments themselves have simple and repetitive Background Music that will be stuck in your head for a while.
Fun for Some: Especially when it comes to long marathons on the Discovery or Science Channels. That is if you haven't been soothed into a coma by episode five by all the pretty machines.
Hilarious in Hindsight: The end of the "Video Games" segment shows people playing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time as the narrator says that programmers would send the completed version of the game to people for review before buying it "and hope it becomes a hit". The narrator is not far off, for at the time the segment aired in 2003, The Sands of Time became one of the best reviewed games for PlayStation 2, Xbox and GameCube, scoring around 92% and 92 out of 100 at GameRankings and Metacritic; it even went so far as to win the Editor's Choice Awards for GameSpot and IGN; Best Action/Adventure Game at the E3 2003 Game Critics Awards; Best Absolutely Everything (Game of the Year 2003) at Penny Arcade; and 2003 Game of the Year at Electronic Gaming Monthly.
Alternately, you could've seen it as rather funny, the chicks trying to run away while the conveyor whisks them off to be packed. "No, I don't wanna go in the box!"
Replacement Scrappy: Inverted with Mark Tewksbury, the show's first host, who did absolutely nothing to fight the common stereotype that all athletes have very dull personalities and voices. Predictably, many people skip the parts where he introduces the show, and hate the fact that they're forced to listen to him drone on during the narration.
