3rd episode now available on YouTube:

https://youtu.be/_M8DBox9Ca4

Have seen all 3, and think it's a decent watch. Some good highlights and interviews with current and ex-players.
Particularly enjoyed the one with Dru Yearwood tonight.

And if that's not enough, Natalie Sawyer gets involved too..... :thumbsup:

Haven't seen yet but have gotten the impression people think it's a good show. I certainly think it's a good idea of a programme to do, although they may need to change the name going into next season!

Will give it a watch over the next day or so.

Excellent this week with Sodje and Turner. Worth the admission money alone.

The Run In is very good and hopefully the precursor for Brentford TV. Stu Hughes Brentford videos with Mark B, Mick C and Marcus plus occasional guest is entertaining as well. Some excellent points on both for these end of season games.

It’s not really been advertised has it. Listened last night for the first time. I found it highly entertaining.

Yeah. Odd!
Not really. I'm sure the club wants to keep things super in house ahead of its biggest on field game for half a century. Don't want to bother players with extra interviews etc beyond their official responsibilities.
As an aside, I'm sure Jersey Road are super vigilant for any spies from Motspur Park and vice versa.

They did one the weekend before the Stoke/Barnsley games though, which were equally as important......
Would’ve thought they would at least have done some sort of Farewell GP tribute......

Liverpool at present
I get the bubbly, youthful pitch. Marcus is good . Watchable. These things can get stale pretty quickly. They might have a whole season to do next, then what? Lineker had to learn irony. I quite liked the verbals on RTE but even that sparring can also get stale. The presence is right.

I think if it continues to be behind closed doors I'd like them to continue for next season. Gives some interaction with the club. I've enjoyed watching them.

I see that this programme is returning. I am surprised they have kept the name, however, as 46 games makes for a very long run-in!
They say that they want a new name, and have asked for suggestions...

Having just watched last night's episode, bit of a bland return I thought.........
No discussion on Ollie's transfer, or the COVID B team positive test implications on the squad for the Huddersfield game. No player interviews. Just discussions on the BrumScum and Southampton games really.
Hopefully they're just finding their feet again, as I thought the content at the end of last season was pretty decent......

I found it very dull. I like Marcus a lot, but there needs to be more than one guest per show.
The exposure issues on the camera didn’t help, either.

In terms of the new name ‘On the Run’ or as a nod to You Tube ‘You Bees’ and last one based on the lack of prizes ‘Keep the shirt’.

Can't disagree. Rather poor. Watch highlights I've already watched etc.

I won't bother with it as a warm up for today's match, then!

Fluff. Needs to be hard hitting and more then just a cheerleading show.

As it's a club endorsed show, I don't expect to see anything hard-hitting. However, I do expect to see exclusive footage, interviews, and insights that are not available anywhere else.
I think it would be a nice idea to interview a fan a week to get their input on games, how the season is panning out, and so on. Especially to get alternative views from fans who aren't necessarily going to be fluffy.
Also, learning more about our players. One of the best things about Brentford that I fear might dissipate a little, is the connection between the fans and players. We generally know very little about the players, so anything to help that will be great. Knowing what they do in the community would also be a huge asset. Little features on what they do with the Community Trust would be superb. In fact, features on the Community Trust anyway would be great. Knowing more about the upcoming talent Inn the B team would also be good for the fans.

Well I for one thought it ok. It is clearly early days as they set it up. Would be good if people will give things a chance to develop. They will improve and will work out what works, what does not. I am sure they are willing to listen to suggestions. As for the Covid issue nothing I believe has been said about who it is.

I did say something similar in my latest post on this.
However, the most disappointing thing for me was it seems to have gone backwards compared to last season's offerings, and they should have had enough time to put something better together.......

I enjoy it very much. This week's was a bit thrown together but the idea is good and it helps build up excitement before the game. The one thing that does annoy me is the audio quality. They surely must have some decent kit in the new stadium?!

Now showing as The Warm Up.
Much better this week I thought.
Karleigh "no U in" Osborne came across really well.
Plus nice little pieces with Saman and members of the Brentford Women's team.
Liked the new location too.
Despite what others have said, I like Stu Wakeford too.
Mods, feel free to change the thread name.

Is it just me or does Marcus Gayle always look/sound really awkward?

Karleigh was great on this week’s episode and Stu is fine - anyone is who loves the Bees as much as he does is a good egg in my book.

As mentioned above by someone else, would be great to get more behind the scenes of players and exclusive content. Otherwise not a bad watch.

With the current situation as it is. It is a excellent idea and show, gives us fans something to watch for an hour. Obviously not for us as some won't enjoy or bother reading it. But definitely good to give interaction from the club to the fans. Both Marcus and Stu are perfect for the role.

Maybe a way for fans to put in questions to be asked to players? To answer on the following episode might be a good idea?? Banana work your magic maybe here?

yeah I was thinking about that too after watching today’s episode - think the post was on Facebook. All makes sense now the person who posted didn’t recognise Stu....

My In-Laws live in Wakefield.......quite a nice place actually.....

Thought this week’s edition was OK, good to see Karleigh back again.
But the “shirt delivery” feature should have been 5 mins max!!!! Seemed to go on for hours..........
