Compelling TV



She bit into a juicy apple spellbound as she watched television.

Suddenly the ringtone on her phone sounded.

For someone who treated her phone as if it was attached to her at birth, this was unusual that she didn’t even flinch at the thought of an incoming text.

The programme she was watching was too compelling.

She would check her phone for messages later.

For the time being her full attention was on her television set.

She giggled when there was something funny to laugh at.

She nodded her head in agreement when an opinion was expressed that she agreed with.

What was she watching that had her full attention?

Googlebox – An English reality series that takes the viewer into the homes of other television viewers.

She was watching a TV programme that watches people watching TV.

This is what her world had become.
