12 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw the advert for this programme, and from the title I knew it was something to do with television, and then I read a review for it saying that it was like a real-life version of The Royle Family, and when I tried it I was so glad I watched it. Narrated by Caroline Aherne (from The Royle Family), television at some time or another is part of everybody's life in Great Britain, and this documentaries takes a number of people from all walks of life, all couples, families or friends with various characteristics and ways of life, whether they be white, black, Asian, young, middle-aged, old, straight, gay, and we watch them watch television. They basically watch the most recent television, i.e. from the week, and we see their reactions, physical and comments, to the memorable and most talked about moments from significant programmes, i.e. news, dramas, soap operas, documentaries, comedy, charity events, reality television, natural history, medical programmes, cooking and food programmes, and much more. As each episode goes on we get to know, and many cases enjoy, watching the people as they watch what we watched and see their quips and discussions of what was going on, and in many cases you can associate and agree with what they are saying, or you can just laugh at it. This programme is very reminiscent of many other experimental "look at ourselves" documentaries, it is fascinating viewing because of the various opinions and expressions people have to programmes you may or may not know, it is a good way to catch up with what has been going on, and it is funny to watch the bickering and funny things said and done while the telly is on, especially with the distinctive characters, e.g. the gay couple, manly blokes and the posh drunks, a fantastic documentary. Very good!
