Big Brother is back on Channel 4! it starts on Friday 9pm and if you have E4 it's on live sometime midnight.

I wonder if it's going to be good. oh and have you guys seen how not to get into Big Brother?

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU POST:

To the 'haters'. Yes, yes, we already know how much you loathe 'Big Brother'. It is horrible, it is terrible, it is the bane of your existence. You wish you could launch it into the sun. OK, now that we've established how much you hate it, could you please be courteous enough to Juliet not to fill her thread with the regurgitated detractive drivel that we've heard countless times before. It isn't my favorite piece of television either, but if you don't have anything intelligent to say, don't say it.

Lets keep it to constructive BB talk, OK?

I find Big Brother disturbingly addictive. I can sit there slavishly watching it, thinking to myself 'I am watching people live, I could be out getting a life of my own' yet be completely unable to turn off. I was a total detractor of the show until I caught the last ten minutes of an episode, then BAM! I was a sad addict.
Big Brother is like crack, you know it is bad, but once you start you can't stop and it is enjoyable while you are doing it.
I will try not to watch it but I know in the back of my mind that I don't have the will power to stay away.
I wonder if the homosexual will be male or female this year (or one of each)?

My sister is a addict to it, which was bloody annoying since if I wanted to watch the TV it would be Big Brother and I got tired of that very quickly. But it did have the annoying trait of being fairly interesting once I was forced to watch it.

The worst bit was that after the highlights show finished, my sister went on to watch the live version on E4 - now that was boring.  puke

It's like that film that Andy Warhol made called "Sleep". Basically it's like watching a person sleep, or any other everyday activity, it just gets repetitive and boring after a while.

Aww.  I just prepared a 3 page angry reply filled with childish insults in Word, and now I can't post it here.

You 've prolly guessed.  I 'm not a fan.  Some of my favourite shows were cancelled because of Big Brother specials such as the last ep of every season.

Thou shalt NOT cancel my favourite tv shows.

I like Big Brother! But my mate thinks that now they are choosing people cos they have something about them which would be good in the house eg. a ex-stripper or something.

They're having 12 contestants this year instead of 10..which means it will run for longer *groan*  hmpf I find it wierd and slightly uncomfortable if I do end up watching it coz its like I'm invading their privacy, which i dont like doing. But my friend reminded me that it was their own fault   wink I think that more people have applied this year because they know that they get an easy road to fame for a short while. And I bet that most of the housemates will have birthdays in May and June. It makes it more interesting if someone in the house has a birthday on TV..(or so the producers think)  smile

I won't be watching it. I have no problem with the show itself, just the hype that surrounded it when it first came on.

I failed to watch it when all the hype was surrounding it, but watched a repeat a few months later. 5 people were left in the house and Nasty Nick had gone. What boring repetitive drivel that was. Looking back I can see why people got into it, but personally I cant stand the damn thing. Too much hysteria. The only good bit is the highlights program at the end of the series where all of the weeks gets compacted into an hour or two. Now that actually is entertaining viewing.

BB, it was ok first, and second, but a third, i don't think it would be an good a third time, frankly i think they're squeezing all they can out of it, it was more of a novelty i think, i may watch it, but i won't be engrossed.

I must guess that, although I don't have a strong like for the program, the BB from Europe is better than the one from the States cuz I hear so much on how often they cut footage in the one here in America. All I remember from the first one is that although unscripted, the producers were hoping for some dramatic action by 'forcing' them into situations. Overall it was an OK thing to watch for a while.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOO!!!!! NOT AGAIN,

Still this time one of the inmates may go crazy and kill everyone live on TV, and for the weeks that follow we get to watch their lifeless bodies slowley decompose.

Yeah, that would be cool.

I heard something bout the American version of BB, where some guy put a knife to a girls' throat.  Is it true?

I'm always laughing when the viewers get to vote on who they want out of the BB house. What a bunch of losers! That is, TVNorway just shows columns showing the percentage of votes given to each of those nominated, but they don't show which column belongs to which nominee, just question marks... Thus, you can safely assume the whole voting is rigged, so as the tv company may earn money on the voting.
This is further assured by the fact that the votes are always like this:
Mystery Column 1: 18%
Mystery Column 2: 23%
Mystery Column 3: 21%
Mystery Column 4: 20%
Mystery Column 5: 18%
And enter the stupid teenagers who really believe this is the situation, and that their vote (among the 300.000 others) will be important.
I told my theory to my BB-addicted girlfriend, but she dismissed it as crap, because I don't like the show...

And yesterday, there was another one to be voted out. The columns showing each of the four nominees vote count were as follows, (and I'm not kidding): 23%, 24%, 26% and 27%. And 150.000 votes came in during the next 45 minutes...

I love the show.

Yes, the rumour about the US version of the show is true (I follow US and Australian Big Brother too for some strange reason) - I do believe the offender was evicted although I don't recall it all that well.

RE Big Brother in the UK, many people thought BB2 would fall flat on its backside -but did it? I don't believe it's a novelty - just a bloody good idea, which will see it through for at least another few series. I personally enjoyed BB2 more than the original. I suspect BB3 will be better again! And only seven hours, twelve minutes until the fun begins! Woohoo!

Ben, you get pissed by lots of stuff eh? I'm not taunting, or particularily trying to be an ass, but you seem to get angry at things a lot. Just an observation.

Big Brother (1) was sort of funny with regular people voting them off. 2, I disliked more (Alliances are in my opinion something that can ruin shows. For example, the mole is good because you can't make alliances... people can screw you that way. You can;t trust people) but I liked the guy who won, the sarcastic bastard. He was funny... especially when he made that doll of the girl with the ass creeping out. That was hilarious.

Everyone hates Jade it seems.#

I never saw any of the Mole, however the idea seemed great.

But I am sorry, before work yesterday I switched onto E4 to see Big Brother LIVE, and all that was there were a bunch of people sleeping.

Update: Big Brother is crap. The people are the most boring, the rich/poor divide stops social contact, 2 have left and 3 more want to go! Do you really think it is interesting, i think it is sh*t. The other 2 were ok, but this?

Big Brother is a demon sent by goat-killing-monkey-navigated-rocket-propelled-evil-..........eh.........doers!

It is cocaine for the eyeballs and not the good kind.
Like Futurama!

Interesting things that happened in the entire history of Big Brother:
Jack Dee,
some guy climbed out cos he went insane.

That's it.

TheVoices: I know you're mad right now, but TV doesn't suck!

Well I guess it dependswhat country you're in at the moment to relate to whatever opinion you're making on BB. There's like 20 countries or something obscene like that which make the show.

There's only two or so weeks left in our second series here. Kinda good to watch now cuz it's the business end of the deal.
