When your show is called Gogglebox it instantly sounds bad but I promise what you get is so good you can’t stop watching.
For those that don’t know GoggleBox features ordinary Australian reviewing key tv moments from the past week in the comfort of their own lounge room.
Casting just like any show is key and Gogglebox has a very diverse group There’s Wayne and Tom who very clearly like a glass of wine. Art dealers Mick and Di have been happily married for nearly 50 years. Chuck in a few families and best friends. You have a diverse cast from many different ages and backgrounds that you can easily find someone to relate too.
There was a diverse mix of shows as well with participants covering shows from the last 7 days like I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, My Kitchen Rules, Dinner with Lions, Shark Tank and 60 Minutes’ coverage of the Sydney siege which make the series fresh and still relevant
But what makes Gogglebox even more surprising is the fact that particpants are fair and honest no matter what show the network is on.
GoggleBox is fun light entertainment and should be treated as such. So before you make a judgement based on a press release synopsis or because the idea sounds bad take a chance,you might be surprised, I sure was.
