Well, I’‘m glad to see you tried… But to be honest, I couldn’t last longer than a couple of minutes into your podcast. Good luck.

Stumpy you crazy wonderful guy!
I watched the full show, and no it is not my sence of humor, now I said it, but what do I know I’m probably kind of dull…
At least I know I’m vintage.
When this is said, then I think perhaps it could be some cult woodworking, that you could have some young guys that thought this was really so off that it gets this special status of cult, but that takes time and you will never know if it happens.
I love the fact that you go the full line I really respect this, and I think you are there in every detail, so RESPECT to you.
I also liked to see you fix that bandsaw blade, since I have a broken one, I do wonder what will happen to the hardening of the teeth there?
Perhaps it is just woodworking and comedy that are a concept we are not used to so it is to off the line…
I don’t know, but I do love that you did it, thank you for that.
The best of my thoughts,
Mads

And no it is not bad, just not my humor, I think acually you have done a good job, nice details and it is clear to me that you put a lot of efford in it.

I watched it AGAIN!

Tone Dr. Mullet down.

Break up the segments into smaller segments and switch them more often. This will mean more editing.

The laugh track will work but use it strategically not liberally.

Clearer video would be nice.

Maybe use Stumpy and Dr. Mullet(toned down) to work the same project or different angles(hint) of the same project.

You could do a whole show on both topics covered in the one episode ie. bandsaw blade repair would be one show and the guides would be on another show.

Be more specific on one project, not general on two or more.

Overall length could be cut down to 10-15 minutes.

Intro and wrap up the show with corny humor instead of saturating the whole show with it. It might be easier for you this way. You will be able to boost the detailed content of the project and boost the humor for the fun part.

I’m going to watch it again and I will watch if there are other things I “see” for comments.

I am proud of you for reposting this. (slap on the back) It must have been tough because I can see that you put A LOT of effort and yourself into this. Keep up the nice work and get going on the next episode. You have until Saturday to get it done!

I thought it was a good pilot. I think it was a very good DIY blade guide you made.
And you even mentioned safety “Don’t cut your face off”.
Looking forward to the next episode.

I have to agree with Bret. I was tempted to click off after a short time, but I didn’t.
My biggest problem with it, It didn’t move along fast enough, and the characters made it that much slower moving.
Now don’t get me wrong, it’s much better than I could do, but it’s just not the type of show I would watch.
I would try it without the characters and do some more editing to speed it up.
Make the project the main focus.
I did see a few things in the video that I liked, and if you do a remake I will give it a second look.
Keep trying and don’t get discouraged.

I liked it ….. First off I have a warm spot for Yoopers
being a fellow Michigander we used to Host “Great White North” Parties. I echo Bretts comments, strongly agree to tone down the humor throughout the show
but it would be great in the beginning / end and maybe in the middle. I liked the part Stumpys’s
Evening advice , the things that we wish we could all say. From a technical aspect you should
work on the lighting hard to see some of it. I do look forward to your next addition with some of
the suggestions worked in
Good Luck God’s speed and we will keep a pastie warm for you

I did watch the entire video. I agree with most of what Brett said. Those are good suggestions.

Honestly, I believe the poor lighting and audio level in/out played a part in making it hard for me to pay attention to what you wanted me to pay attention to. Just improve the lighting and the sound quality / level … then work on the content items Brett mentioned.

Not a bad start at all. Just take the suggestions and you’ll find your way. You know we are pulling FOR you.

I was aware of the lighting and sound, that’s why it’s a pilot and not a finished episode. We’ve already begun installing new equipment.

Wow. I liked it! I agree with the comments about it moving a bit slow, but I think that will improve naturally through practice.

A couple lines that had me laughing out loud:
Epoxy. Smells like my old lady’s perm.
If you cut off your finger it’s your own damn fault (as stumpy proceeds to make a cut that scares even me!)
Don’t cut your face off! (stated more as a command than a bit of helpful advice)

Also really enjoyed Stumpy’s evening advice, especially with the caveat that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

I’ve always been a fan of the red green show, and this feels similar. I like that you are using such an offbeat setting, but are actually sharing some great info.

Also, I liked Dr Mullet. Didn’t think he was overplayed at all. I know people almost exactly like that. They overplay themselves, and it’s amusing.

Keep em coming!

The laugh track still mostly bugs me though. Like a previous comment stated, use it strategically.

...sooo, we’ll see a new episode in 2 weeks?
