Hi guys,

Fab to see the new stuff out and congrats on an enjoyable webisode! Good luck with future spots. I assume you're both taking your own siesta now after your sugary merienda :-)

Thanks Justin and Susan it's just the sort of programme I needed watch whilst trying to lose a few pounds after Christmas!!
Watching you two stuffing your faces with eclairs,vanilla slices and doughnuts, on the pretext of making an educational/informative TV programme has sent my diet haywire!!
Anyhow I don't nedd to know the Spanish name, I just go into the shop and point. After a fortnight and having worked my way through the selection I know which I like best and only then do I endeavor to learn the name.

Thanks for the webisode Guys.
Nice to watch something very informal and natural instead of some of the pretence of some material on other presentations.
After the content of this first episode I presume your next topic will be on weight loss and keeping fit!

Hi Justin, really enjoyed the first installment. Came home from work exhausted and what do I see? - two people sleeping! Watched it while waiting for dinner, I was starving thanks for eating all those cakes especially the one with chocolate inside.. Looking forward to further episodes in particular when you're out on location and if the show develops as well as the Eye on Spain site/brand I'm sure we're all in for a treat. Wish I was there to see the production shot live, would like some comps next time I'm over!

I think the idea is great and will keep us unlucky people at home in touch with things. How about testing tapas, I dont eat cakes, but interesting anyway

Well done guys. Keep it coming. Can you do a review of the local spanish language schools?


jane said:
19 January 2009 @ 16:29

great show guys! ya made me giggle and was nice to see natural tv without being edited! I have a great subject for you to look into - spanish child benifits! YES, there is such a thing, but the stories i hear about what you actually get and what your entitled to keep changing, see if you can find out the real TRUTH about government help with kids for family of 3 or more children who are residenthia! look forward to hearing what you come up with.

looking forward to tomorrows show - no more cakes tho PLEASEEEEEEE! lol.

cheerio

p.s. great to see you after all the newsletters i have read, nice to put a face to the names!

Relaxing and informative chat, especially if you are into cakes, and it has taken away some of the mystery of what you are actually going to get when buying spanish cakes - some good some not quite so good! And yes a 'lesson' on tapas would be great - so thanks guys.

Well done! My daughters and I had a good laugh watching you. We will be moving to Spain in the next few months so will be checking out each webisode with loads of interest.
I agree with Sally Ann, it would be nice to see something on the schools. Our girls are booked into an International school so it would be nice to see what we're in for.
Kind regards from sunny South Africa

Good start Justin and Susan, Must look out for the OB's when I am out in La Duquesa again.

Hey guys-pretty good first-timer! May you go from strength to huge strength!
I like your informal, light approach, and I know as time passes that you'll get it quite slick-looking too.
As you may remember--Di and myself are in the film & tv industry; would love to help when the time's right!

Anna said:

Loved the show! One request please, when you are introducing us to new Spanish words could you put them up on the screen or at least spell them out loud. Keep up the great work!!

Well done Guys, if you can make a program from a plate of cakes, I look forward to the future shows (My favorite was the cream slice thingy)

Top Marks

Absolutely wonderful. Can't wait until tomorrows show. It is so light hearted and so needed. Laughed a lot and listened intently to every word.

Despertarse (Wakey Wakey) The show goes out a Siesta time, so liven it up at bit! Most remarks are great, etc., but a big, big improvement is really needed. Obviously, it was the first show, and only 'One take' was done. However, Justin needs to be more upbeat. Justine seemed to be a bit 'lost' at times, (so did Susan). Appears the show is being done 'from the top of their head' - with not much of a script reading, prior to filming.
The plan for the week is (in your words); Tues (guest); Wed: (guest, but won't tell who); Thurs: ('somebody else', you know who he is) and, wait for it, Fri: 'A surprise'.
So, there you go then, something really to look forward to.
If newpapers and magazines - and other TV channels did their PR in the same way, then there wouldn't be many readers or viewers.
Don't take the 'constructive criticism' the wrong way.
In a nutshell: You can't have yoyr cake - and eat it. Not yet, anyway.


Morerosado said:
20 January 2009 @ 11:04

Andrew, don't mince your words, come straight out with your views ! (I'm certain your critisms/comments will be taken on board by Susan & Justin).

If, however, you find you are too bored, just go read a book. No one will mind.


John (in the UK) said:
20 January 2009 @ 11:08

I like the show's style - informal and a bit ad-lib but fun to watch and not too serious. It was just the diversion I needed from doing my tax accounts yesterday.


Justin said:
20 January 2009 @ 11:28

Thanks for all the comments everyeone. Some great tips and ideas in there.

Andrew, give us a chance mate. We're just starting off and it's going to take a little time. Rome wasn't built in a day. At least we're trying something different.

What a great idea this is! I really enjoyed the first episode and thought both of you were very relaxed and charming. I know the cake-tasting wasn't rocket science, but it's just the kind of practial info that is both interesting and useful, so well done! I am looking forward to the forthcoming interviews too.


Linda said:
20 January 2009 @ 22:25

Brilliant. I love the informality and it is friendly. You can't please everyone (not mentioning any names) anyhow they can always switch off! After the cake show would be interested to know a bit more about Tapas if poss. Loved the chat with Inez. Actually chat says it all about your show not interview too formal for you


Brian Crossin said:
21 January 2009 @ 17:17

Another foody one. No problem I love those churreos?dippy things. It is so cold in England the chocolate would be solid in two minutes.
See you tomorrow

Excellent topic today and Inez...esp. for those who are contemplating on moving to Spain like I do.
Speaking of reserves...what would you say I would need per month for a family of four excluding rent?
