Gogglebox best bits: Episode 1, Season 9

Every evening in Australia, more than four million of us choose to spend a night in front of the telly. Have you ever wondered what other people are watching and how they're reacting to the shows you're loving or hating?

Each week we will bring you the best bits of each episode, from thought provoking Goggleboxer insights to the hilarious reactions we all love. 

Match made in...

Whether you're watching or not, it's impossible to escape the hype of MAFS and the Goggleboxers are no exception. 

However, they are pretty sceptical of the match-making experts on the show. 

"Oh, the experts," Lee says, curling her fingers into air quotation marks. 

And Adam adds his witty two cents worth, lamenting that the girls in his year 10 class would have done a better job of playing cupid than the three on the show. 

What would the opening minutes of the new Gogglebox season be without a melody from Papa Del? As soon as Matt confirms his virginal status, Papa Del can't help but burst into a rendition of Madonna’s hit, Like a Virgin.

Gender issues

The Goggleboxers realised, while watching The Secret Life of 5 year olds, that they pretty much have the same views of the opposite sex as the children do. 

Tim agrees with one little girl that girls are more gentle and kind. While Anastasia is in agreeance that boys are smelly.

Family ties

Everyone was rooting for Benjamin Law when he came out as being homosexual on The Family Law.

The Goggleboxers were tense as Ben’s big moment arrived and then exclaimed in joy once he’d let the cat out of the bag.

Emotional rollercoaster, much?

But Holly voiced the real take away:

"Hopefully it won’t be such a big thing to come out soon."

Stream new episodes of Gogglebox weekly or watch 7.30pm Wednesdays, first on Foxtel.
