Regular panelists


  • Product recommendations are described in a currency called an Alex, one Alex being roughly equivalent to $700 U.S. dollars, the cost of Adobe Photoshop at the time of the currency's inception. It was so named because Alex Lindsay frequently mentions items that cost a large amount of money.
  • The entire regular cast has their own jingles, provided by Geoff Smith.
  • If going 'down the rat-hole' is ever mentioned it means that the show has gone off topic.
