Gogglebox best bits: Man buns, mullets and machines

This week, the Goggleboxers returned to their favourite TV musical-mystery, The Secret Daughter, Territory Cops and Love It Or List It Australia.

The results are in! Not only has Australia overwhelmingly shown its support for marriage equality, but the Goggleboxers have unanimously agreed on one thing: David Attenborough documentaries are life.

No matter what they watch on the box, it's hard to find the families in total agreement on anything. For example, Wayne & Tom are the only family who are "obsessed" with The Secret Daughter, while Angie & Yvie would rather just... not. But for old mate David, they stand united in their unrelenting fandom. 

Other hits this week included ABC documentary, The Mosque Next Door, Territory Cops, Love It Or List It Australia and Braveheart.

Northern Territory tourism: the hair edition

Australia's Northern Territory is a vast expanse of unique landscapes, fascinating history and... questionable hairdos? 

This week Territory Cops brought us the tale of a guy who could pull off a man bun but couldn't manage to register his car, while Instant Hotel gave us one of the top mullets on TV as the contestants visited a BnB in Humpty Doo. 

Interestingly, Instant Hotel also introduced Australia to our new favourite mother-daughter duo: Babe & Bondi. Oh my.

Is Siri sexy?

Gruen brought us the new ad for 'Alexa' - Apple's home assistant that will plan your day, control your home and, er, spice up your sex life? Incredibly, there's already 25 per cent of Alexa uses who say they've had fantasies about their electronic device. 

Naturally, the Goggleboxers wondered how Siri (now the poor-man's Alexa?) would respond to their pick-up lines. 

Sorry guys, Siri is too good for you.

How many kids is too many kids?

This week's episode of Love It Or List It divided some households. Not only in terms of whether the homeowners should "love it" or "list it", but because the family had NINE kids. Nine... kids.

The Dalton's practically pondered the number of bathrooms you'd need, while Sarah-Marie confessed she'd love nine kids, to the concern of fiance Matty.
