21-year-old Ben folllows his TV-obsessed dad to explore how television consumption has evolved.
Where we once had appointment viewing (gathering together around a TV set at a specified time), we now have total independence. We watch what we want, when we want, where we want, and how often we want.
At one time, television had the power to bring together an entire nation. Today, it can barely bring together a household. Has the individualisation of how we watch television fragmented us as a culture?
21-year-old Ben is following his TV-obsessed dad to explore how television consumption has evolved from one generation to the next and how something that used to bring people together is now tearing us apart.
"The father and son dynamic (which could've been very corny in lesser hands) is sweet, charming, and elucidating."
