Re: Online Petition to bring Back AJ Benza for HSP

Signed.

Gabe doesn't even seem to enjoy himself anymore. Also, his jokes aren't nearly as funny without AJ there to give him ****. I never thought I liked the guy, but it's quite obvious the chemistry between the 2 was actually a big part of the show. It's completely different now
Hopefully someone important sees this!

Re: Online Petition to bring Back AJ Benza for HSP

This was Gabe and I doing "schtick" for God's sake. There wasnt an ounce of bad blood between us. How could anyone see those takes and think we were really at odds. Jesus.....we were just screwing with each other.

I must admit that I did not understand how important AJ Benza was in making Gabe Kaplan funny. Now it is very obvious and this is the worst season so far (season 5 was the best).

Re: Online Petition to bring Back AJ Benza for HSP

I signed this earlier, but also sent a message to HSP (the link to do so is in the first post of this thread if you didn't know). Like many of you, I miss hearing the bantered color commentary between AJ and Gabe. It's kind of off-putting when I'm sitting there listening to Gabe drowning in his jokes with nobody to bounce them off of. All due respect to Kara, the inserts on this particular show are mediocre, valueless television and, further, all respect to Daniel, the weekly PokerStars-sponsored segment is unnecessary filler as well.

The chemistry between Gabe and AJ was metered just fine if you ask me. If something ain't broke, you don't fix it. I sincerely hope they will invite AJ to return to this show.

Re: Online Petition to bring Back AJ Benza for HSP

Just wondering.. has ^^ actually been confirmed AJ?

Personally, I doubt its him. I think he'd just save face and move on to his next gig.

Gabe and AJ's chemistry was perfect. Now Gabe sounds like an old uncle making lame jokes at the family dinner. Kara is beautiful, nice hair and everything but totally useless... Perhaps they really wanna be making poker after dark?....

Honestly one of the biggest uncomprehensible mistake done to a show. Ridiculous.


Sorry for my english, I'm much better in french.
