Hi everyone

A further reminder, for those that need it, that this series starts tonight, enjoy!

I thought this show was very disappointing. The contestants aren’t contributing much at all.

Is bee keeping even meant to be a “competition”? Not in my mind.

Should have done better Aunty.

I don’t think this show’s key audience is beekeepers. The competition aspect and the bit of a “hah! stick it to those country folk” underdog story I got will however keep a lot of laymen interested. And that’s what the shows about, entertaining laymen. If it gets some people genuinely interested in beekeeping then I think it’s a good thing that could be built upon.

Honestly my biggest problem with the show is that the download was in 144p.
