    I can't believe they selected Deirdre O’Kane and Rory Cowan for narration, their voices are the complete polar opposites of the softly spoken Caroline Aherne (RIP) and Craig Cash.

    Is Rory Cowan the fella with the extremely campy voice? If so a bit too panto for Googlebox I'd say.

    I like Deirdre o Kane as an actress. But as a presenter / voiceover shes woeful. She's currently on some radio ad involving a spider in the loo or some such ****e, and her delivery is just painful.

    Thankfully I never thought the voice overs that important in the UK Gogglebox. They don't really interpret what is happening a la Four in a Bed or Come Dine with Me so shouldn't make much odds to me if they are good or bad, will be the bits in between that will make or break it

    O'Kane in particular has a voice like an industrial grinding apparatus.

    Night time in all the houses when they're watching the six one news?
    There's something wrong there


  • Registered Users Posts: 51,343 ✭✭✭✭ That_Guy


    I dunno... The 2 Cavan fellas are the only ones that seem in any way natural.

    The voice overs don't work

    I'm sure they don't watch things live when broadcast.

    Never watched the UK version but decided to tune in tonight.

    I don't get it! This is really boring!

    I think it's ok compared to C4 for just starting out.

    Most load of s*ite I have ever seen on TV, watching other people watch their TV?!? No wonder it is so popular our society now is all about judging other people...

    This is pretty terrible.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,257 ✭✭✭ BettePorter


    Cavan lads are the only ones with potential to be funny / naturally witty so far I think.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,525 kilns


    Some of them playing to the camera a bit too much

    Yes her voice very grating already


  • Registered Users Posts: 870 ✭✭✭ barney shamrock


    Brutal so far.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,492 ✭✭✭ Sir Oxman


    Shocking.
    Disclaimer: I hate the Cowan thing


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,591 ✭✭✭✭ Lady Chatterton


    Feels awful flat.

    I do like the Cavan lads, the African family and the Limerick mother and sons though.

    It's a pity they couldn't get anyone from Dublin to go on it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 51,343 ✭✭✭✭ That_Guy


    Those two from the Liberties should be hooked. They're trying waaaaaaaaaaaaay too hard.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,525 kilns


    Cavan lads anti Dubs :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,533 ✭✭✭ KKkitty


    I'm liking it so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 51,343 ✭✭✭✭ That_Guy


    Paul x 2 = No thanks.

    Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means 'a whale's vagina'.
    :p:p


  • Registered Users Posts: 886 ✭✭✭ Tandey


    This is awful tripe.

    Can't help but feeling like a saddo watching it, honestly whats the point? It's boring.

    Cool is there Cavan people on it, I love the Cavan accent, any Cork people on it?
