Monday marks three years since the first appearance of Brendan Brady on our screens, so what better choice than his first ever episode. With a tinier tash and a trademark leather jacket, Brendan greeted half sister Cheryl warmly, telling her the sad tale of his wife cheating on him (yeah right). There was even a mention of their dad - much later revealed to be the monster in his life: Seamus Brady.
I’ve begun uploading Brendan’s first few episodes from August 2010 onto the DailyMotion page. There’s only one video up so far but I’ll be uploading more over the next few days/weeks.
Hope you enjoy!
As promised the rest of the episodes from August 2010 including one which is not on Dailymotion so might be new to some! I apologise if any of the links in this post or the last post appear to be broken or not working - I can assure you that they will work eventually - there are possibly times when the site is down or being a pain but I’ve doubled checked and they all work :). Hope you enjoy the videos!
Here is part one of the August 2010 downloads.

Thank you for your continuing support of Emmett and the site. As you know, every Brendan episode from Sep 2010 is available to watch here and certain older episodes are uploaded here. But for those interested I’m offering better quality downloads of every August 2010 episode (Brendan’s first episode, Brendan and Ste’s first meeting and more). Here are the first six episodes he’s in during August.

Cheryl is worried that Brendan has put a bad light on her special evening especially when the press (Michaela) show up to interview Ste. Brendan offers Ste a trial job and threatens to kill him if Ste even jokes about going to the police, so Ste gives an overly positive report to Michaela to hold onto the job offer.
