I'm not a reality TV fan but stumbled across this and it made me laugh so much - I'm sure it's very set up but the characters are so OTT - the pissed couple were on 4 in a Bed apparently - probably good value on there so this was offered to them as well.
Do other people find the swearing constantly a bit unnatural? Know I wouldn't swear in front of my DS when he was younger - not being judgey, just for the family groups seems a bit odd or is it just me?
Anyway, shame that was the last one.

It seems a few of them don't live together. I gather they are told this week you must watch x, y and z so they get together to watch them. I don't know if they watch them live though. Possibly they just watch all the programmes in one go? I haven't noticed if people clothes change when the programmes do.

the woman with the teens pisses me off. how many times does she say "what the FUUUCK"? and her pink lipstick is awful.

i love the jamaican women and the hairdressers, also love the family of grown men all squished up together in their suits on the sofa. grin it looks so unnatural!

does anyone know anything about 'the rules'? do the jamaican women live together? it said they were friends at the start but does one just come round to watch tv with the other or do they have to agree to watch certain shows in order to take part in the show? i can understand why they would want a second person there as watching one person watching tv would be shit but i find it so unnatural. also, no-one ever sits in a different seat. they all stay in the same one!

I love the posh piss heads especially when they broke the sofa. I like the teenage lad too who just gets so annoyed with his mum. I do worry about myself a bit though, watching people watch tv does sound a bit sad.

I love the posh pissheads! They make me laugh so much! I look forward to it every week, this is the kind of laugh-at-yourself reality telly I like.

The mum with the teens is annoying though, she is definitely playing up to the camera.

I'm looking forward tot his tonight. The posh pissheads make me laugh, especially the other week when he said "shit in a bucket". Jamaican DH hates the Jamaican women, I find them all quite intriguing.

I just like being nosey really.

I love it. A good cross section of society.
Love the gay couple, and the Jamaican women and the stroppy teenagers shouting at their annoying Mum!
The posh pissheads just get on my nerves though.

Hilarious looking at the tutankamun paper weight saying she'll have pork chops tomorrow grin grin grin grin

Loving the posh pissed couple
DH already named the 'the Fulfords'

I know, bit late to the party....

What is the actual point of the programme? You get Caroline aherne telling us that 17 people watched xyz on a Sunday night, then you see them, just, er, watching it confused

I just don't understand its aim.

Quite a funny watch but can't help thinking folk are playing up to the camera a huge bit. No way they can be that natural knowing they are there.

And the screams at the obem birth moment. Hilarious. In fact, I found that a lot of the comments made were just the kind of thing me and Dh make at the tv whilst watching. The Jamaican lady was hilarious - ' that's lord grassam' Hahaaaa

I'm definitely adopting the phrase minge-deep. Very descriptive.

And the elderly couple quite liking Top Gear but not JC. grin

SashaSashays Thu 07-Mar-13 23:01:52

Devils Avocado!

I loved it. My favourite was the posh couple getting slowly sozzled. grin
