    Thoughts.

    Didn't mind it, didn't dislike it.

    On the first show 7 from 10.

    5/10. Saved from much worse by having a genuinely likeable guest in Rob Sitch.

    So many boring/awkward questions and comments from Murphy. And so many weird cutaways to things like shots of library books or someone pouring a cup of tea etc … wtf?

    Didn't kind it. Camera angles, attempt to be arty etc was wanky, but overall not bad.
    Bob needs to stop interrupting his guests, but a solid first show

    I thought it was great. Rob Sitch is the ultimate guest, could go on for 3 hours with him.

    They should bring back Frontline and takedown breakfast TV.

    It got better as it went along, and yes the unsteady camera and the weird angles were annoying. A nice change-up, Open Mike was getting a bit stale I guess.

    I enjoyed it.

    As TBoyleSuperstar said, Bob needs to stop jumping in an interrupting his guests.

    Early days yet but thought it showed a lot of promise.

    Promising start. Could listen to Rob Sitch all day. One of the brilliant comedic minds Australia has produced.

    I really enjoyed watching and loved the casual conversational tone throughout. The sharing of anecdotes was great and I'm looking forward to the next episodes.

    Liked it. Wow, a football show where a supporter, albeit a celeb, is asked about football and his experiences, who would've thought it !!!

    First 5 minutes I was like, what is this crap, but it gets better. I like the fact that it sets up a casual conversation and gives a different perspective than the open mike snooze fest. I like the style and can't wait to see the Fyfe interview.

    I can't help but wonder how much Sitch got paid for Frontline, The Castle and A River Somewhere though.

    I'm guessing he won't have to buy Black and Gold confectionary when he does his shopping.

    Sitch would have royalty payments flowing out the ring hole. Id bet he is a millionaire many times over.
    I liked Bob.
    It will only get better.
    Fyfe one looks a ripper.
    Loved the Fyfe line that was something like " we say stuff like if we dont start well this quarter, your family is dead". Dude might actually be funny.

    I haven't felt that, although can see how the perception is perceived.

    Once upon a time, Murphy was a classy HBF. He wrote for the Age and was pretty understated. Everyone loved him cause he was skinny but skillful. Like the bulldogs people wanted him to taste success. Then he did his knee in the ultimate fairytale season, and at the time when he was called up by Beveridge people wept with joy. But something happened, he was perceived as taking the glory from his teammates. At that point the wheel turned and he started to get more criticism. Add to that an increased media presence and BOOM! More opportunity to shine and receive pot shots. Maybe its bob fatigue, people have had enough of him for the time being.
