on the new feel for Season 9.
The Panel … Wasn’t a fan of this new segment, the first couple of episodes. For me, it doesn’t really work. It is a comedy segment; I get that, but too short and not really giving us any beneficial information, when the show is known for its depth and not just light-hearted humour. It feels like it’s trying too hard at times. After seeing it taped in-studio, I would personally love to see Fridays go from being “Best ofs” to The Panel episode. Eventually as funding improves again and GST, hopefully, returns to an hour long format Fridays could be music/comedy nights. What an excellent way for George and the show to bring us into the weekend!
