  1. I watched and it was 30 minutes. A lot of footage I already seen.😞

  2. I was able to get the full hour in NJ. Love the show and the family. Always excited for the new season to begin.

  3. That was a disappointment. We get reruns on UP to watch. They need to come up with new content when running a “new” season. That doesn’t mean showing scenes from various old shows, here and there tacking on a small piece of never before seen footage.

  4. I watched it and it was an hour long, though, it said it was a different episode? Probably just an UPTV fluke. Loved it anyway!!

  5. Where’s the recap? I can’t watch the show so always depend on the recap..,..

    1. It was just a whole episode on the Bates camping and stuff. I'm sure you could watch it on the UPTV app.

    2. No need for a recap and it wouldn’t be fun to do. It was not a new show. It was a montage of Bates’ vacation clips put together. If you have seen some of the Bates’ trips, that’s your recap.

  6. Love the show and family. BUT UP tv is notorious for “Never Before Seen” amounting to less than 1% of the show. Always disappointed with those episodes. Producers need to remember why we live this family and get back to the basics.

  7. Ellie and Lily,

    Just a suggestion, sometimes when I can't watch the episode I like to read the recap. Could you please post a recap for the never before seen footage episode?


  8. That would be quite a bit of work for Ellie to watch the show and try to figure out which clips had never been seen. I understand that you appreciate recaps; so do I. However, in this case, it’s just a bunch of vacation scenes strung together. I suggest you wait for the rerun or just go back and watch old Bates vacation shows. A recap on this one really wouldn’t be worth the trouble.
