A reality TV show about people watching TV shows and documentaries, called Gogglebox, recently aired ‘My Octopus Teacher’ and their reactions were all of us!
United Kingdom (21 June 2021) – We all loved ‘My Octopus Teacher’ the first time we watched it, so being able to watch other people watch it for the first time is really great. A recent episode of Gogglebox gives us all the opportunity.
Gogglebox is quite a bizarre show. It is basically a show that features people watching TV. You just watch someone watch TV and get to see their reactions. YouTube is also filled with “Reaction Videos”.
The funny part is often people think the most bizarre things when watching TV; even funnier is when they align with something you have said or thought about a show. People involved in Gogglebox are encouraged to think out loud as the show they are watching goes on.
The recent episode featured all the Gogglebox participants watching our award-winning and Proudly South African ‘My Octopus Teacher’. As you can see below, the participants have some hilarious thoughts, and many are also moved to tears as the documentary progresses.
We loved seeing their reactions to the documentary.
