Gogglebox best bits: Episode 7, 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.

Home run

The Goggleboxers are watching Married at First Sight when the topic of reaching 'third base' comes up, but some aren't entirely sure of its meaning. "What's third base?" Tim asks. But they needn't worry, as Emmie Silbery has all the answers. 

"Once you do the right thing at first base, it should only be number one and then go for it", she says casually while swirling a glass of wine. "Oh, ok. So number one and then straight into it," Isabelle queries. Emmie nods and confirms. "Yep, everything." Case closed. 

Eric Boner

The biographical series, Dirty John shows a steamy sex scene between its two main characters, portrayed by Connie Britton and Eric Bana. While the two are writhing around, Di interrupts the moment. "I think I'll have a glass of wine. This is getting very testy," she says with her eyes glued to the TV and glass outreached to Mick.

The Goggleboxers continue to watch the intimate scenes, with Symon adding some timely commentary: "Eric Boner." 

Julia vs Julius

The Goggleboxers are being taught a history lesson on Julius Caesar, and while the name is familiar, they can't quite place him. Matt Dalton has a go: "Caesarstone! Is that from Julius Caesar?" Nope. Anyone else? "How about Caesar salad?" Isabelle asks. Still no. 

When asked about the time of his influence, Holly offers "1800" but Mick hits the jackpot when he confirms the time as 44BC. While the Goggleboxers history knowledge is slowly increasing, Isabelle brings it back when she makes a new discovery. "Oh, Julius Caesar. I thought it was Julia Caesar," she says. Emmie is concerned, but not as much as Kerry. "I have failed you so badly," she says. 

Moose mate

The Goggleboxers watch a documentary about a family who live off the grid and hunt for their main meal: moose. Their father lures in the large male by making the sound of a female, cupping his hands around his mouth and letting out a nasal bellow. The noise may seem obvious, but Keith needs clarification and checks with his wife. "Is that the love call of the moose?" he asks. But Lee has limited information and cuts in replying, "I don't know, Keith. I'm not a moose." There you go.
