Following on from the tremendous success of Gogglebox, we’ve added the name box at the end of our usual FTA TV preview.
Talking about Gogglebox, the occasional glimpse of someone bagging the TV show showed too small a view on what real people would say about the TV they were put through. Some of it looked as scripted as a Neighbours episode, and maybe I’ve just grown up in a hostile family setting in the ghettos of South East Qld, but not since the era of Tony Danza and Kirk Cameron in prime time have I seen any family sitting so lovingly in their lounge room. Nary a mobile phone in sight.
A cynical person who think that some of them are actors, or under such instruction to be passed off as actors. Either way, I’ve done my one shift, and can’t see it going past 5 episode before being moved to a Special New Time. And then to Channel 11.
Here’s this week’s shows that would be better talked about than 60 minutes or some bloke playing with Lions.
