  1. Gogglebox….I like it and all the contibutors, however it feels like they are all self aware and a little too careful to avoid saying anything too controversial or too anti ch10. I know ch10 partially fund the show, but it sometimes lacks a bit of authenticity. Either that or the editing….

    1. They have trashed TEN shows before, and to their credit it has aired. I presume it depends show by show. I do agree they are increasingly self-aware. There’s a lot of self-substituting or even acting out (ie. pottery re-enactment). Still enjoyable though.
