The Twist Ending to “AOTS”
by Perry Michael Simon on January 24, 2013
If you missed the final Attack of the Show on G4, you missed an ending for the ages. In a Newhart-style closing, after the everybody-on-stage ending with Matt Mira and Chris Hardwick, of course, right up front waving goodbye, the show hit the rewind button to a coffee shop somewhere in San Francisco, where Leo Laporte snaps to and tells Patrick Norton about his strange dream….
It was a seriously classy way for AOTS to go out. Leo’s been open about the bad feelings lingering from the demise of The Screen Savers and Tech TV, and this scene brings some closure to the whole thing.
