in the last season of Big Brother Germany was a transgender person called Maxine. He / She has had ugly silicone breasts and his / her behaviour was not womanlike. I'm a feminist by heart and this was not women friendly at all.

Seriously Juliet, i'm not doing this to flame or attack you, but for your own good, don't watch Big Brother!

Yea, i know people can choose what they want on TV, but this sort of trash is below the line of "acceptable"

I am sorry but I seemed to be addicted to this show and it has been interesting so far with that snotty lesbian cow Kitten and she had the most votes to not have her suitcase in the house. she have to share clothes with the others.

Now I am getting my parents to watch it and they were shocked about cardiac Nadia being a transsexual.

Come on admit it. you guys watch it.

Exactly. If they have to, why couldn't they just choose names out of a hat instead of "person most likely to wear a leopard skin thong"?

So the only real reason Big Brother appeals to you is because it's got a load of weird people you can peer at like animals in a zoo. Which Big Brother basically is:

  • Animals in zoos lick each other's genitals. Contestants in Big Brother lick each other's genitals.
  • Animals in zoos get laughed at / ridiculed by the general public. So do Big Brother contestants.
  • If the Zoo isn't that popular / upkeep is too expensive the animals will get kicked out. Basically the same with Big Brother.
  • Despite the general consensus Zoos are bad, loads of people still are engrossed by them. Same with Big Brother.
  • Everyone really goes to the zoo in the hope they'll see some animals having sex, despite what they might say about the zoo being "educational and scientific". Everyone watches Big Brother for sex, but pretend it's got some bizarre scientific value.

I saw 2 seconds after turning off my DVD Player and the TV being previously set to 4. Luckilly it was just a contestant in the Diary Room, so i didn't see anything majorly bad.

Not seen any of Hell's Kitchen either, and if i wanted to see someone swearing at Z list celebrities i would kill myself for being so pathetic...

Big Brother should have a health warning, like cigarettes, "Big Brother could seriously damage your intelligence brain reputation"

I have to skip about 6 pages of the dialy star as it the 'official big brother' paper.

What a crock of shit, they're all muppets anyway, and they seem to have bloke with a sex change in there as well - what can you say to that? 
A confused man and a bunch of faggots add some promiscuous women and you get all these producers crossing their fingers hoping they all fuck each other on live tv and if and when that happens they'll edit it out.
They always pick a bunch of wannabes to go in there.
Shit, and I'm starting to sound like I watch the bloody show, evil bastards!

I've actually asked my dad if we can change newspapers, because I don't want to read about this shitty show for the next 10 weeks. And plus I'm sick of looking at loads of tits (as you can guess, we get The Sun).

Last night I thought I was watching Big Brother, but it turned out to be Hell's Kitchen, which I also hate.

It's at times like this I'm glad that I have a DVD collection. As for newspapers, I refuse to buy any which have 'Big Brother' on the front, because I couldn't give a toss.

I can say with a hundred percent honesty that I don't watch any reality TV shows. A friend of mine once conned me into watching one ep of those late night big brother shows (whatever they are called).
[bender]Needless to say, I was mortified.[/bender]

I truly believe it is a cancerous growth in TV land that must be cut out, before it destroys all chance of anything decent making it to air.

And if the price off writing of the entire genre is sounding like an elitest psuedo-intellectual, then this is the one time I'm willing to pay that price. I REALLY find the whole phenomenon vile.

I was trapped in a hotel room in the lake district on Saturday night and hd to watch Big Brother, as there was only one channel on tv and I was going to commit suicide by drinking shower gel if I didn't have any (sub)human contact.

I am never watching it again unless it somehow incorperates Spaced and Black Books.

No but my dad does, I just take it into work the next morning to pass that first hour with, so I'm usually a day behind when it comes to the news.
If the Star prints any news that is.

So what paper do you read/buy?

We buy the Daily Mail, but I try to stay away from reading the paper because they print such depressing rubbish. The only good thing about it is that it's right wing so I can at least agree with some of what they say. I'd much rather use the television as a source of information though.

ok people, my thread titled 'Big Brother 2004' was meant to provoke people into giving their strong views on this subject.  It was not meant to be an i love BB thread.

sorry for any offence as BB is clearly utter tripe and i was only trying to get people to tell me what they really think of it baisically insulting it.

The Daily Mail is a load of bollocks. I only read it because it's the only paper my Gran buys, and I need a good dose of pure disgust to wake me up in the morning. What's laughable is that for a newspaper that deplores the degrading quality in British TV they continue to pay Jaci Stephen to review all the reality shows every week, AND produce an article on the latest goings-on in soaps. I guess their target audience is too cultured to buy 'Hello' magazine  roll eyes

Sorry. Rant over.

Big Brother just seems to be overdoing it a little too much this year. A smaller house so the housemates are closer together (I wonder why?), live auditions to hand pick the contestants? Well im not watching it at all this series.

Big Brother has gone crazy last night. There has been a big fight and it wasnít pretty.

It started when Emma and Micelle went back to the house from their bed-sit to give the others a surprise shock. Victor and Michelle were not happy to see them again because they didnít like them.

In the end they all had a big fight. I didnít see it live but I have downloaded a video clip of the Internet and it was a really good fight.









I must watch/ tape this tonight on channel 4. I canít wait for this to come out on DVD.

BUMP

How the Big Brother fight started.

I just been watching the highlights on Channel 4 and that was some nasty fight. I think Emma has started it in the first place. After a surprising coming back to the house she brought Marco and Nadia to the bedroom and she spill the beans on what her and Michelle been up to and told them not to trust Victor and Jason because they been saying nasty things behind their back.

Victor and Jason were pissed off about Michelle and Emmaís return. They went to the pamper house and swear their heads off. Then Emma, Nadia, and Marco started a food fight. Jason got so very annoyed and started shouting at three of them to clean up to mess they made. Marco was saying ďoh I will do it when I feel like itĒ but Jason was ordering him to do it right away.

Then the fight started with Jason VS Marco and Emma VS Victor. Then rest of the housemates were trying to break the fights. Daniel brought Emma to the bedroom to try and calm down. Nadia and Jason joined them.

In the end the Big Brother security guards came in the house and separate some of the housemates together and put Emma in the bed sit again.

If Emma would keep herself cool, ignore what nasty things Jason and Victor been saying about her, and not tell Nadia and Marco about everything then this whole messy fight wouldnít have happened.

The tension in the house has seen ratings soar, with Wednesday night's main Channel 4 show attracting 6.3 million, not far off the 6.7 million who tuned in to see the launch night of the fifth series two weeks ago.

Of course you're going to get fighting when the producers have put the most biased and stereotypical people in a show, for example a strong homophobic and a gay guy who only likes straight men!

That's what I thought when I read that. It just shows that they really did want to cause tension between the contestants for better ratings. Now it should be stopped for being crap and boring as well as for being even more like an animal experiment than once thought.

Anyone been watchin British Big Bro, its been pretty good-ish, some funny bits. I enjoy Dermet with BBLB more than the actual show but i found it ironicaly funny that they call Nadia (a tranvestite (sp?)) Nads considering she got hers snipped  tongue  laff

Hope Jason and Disgustibgly Anoying Shell *shudders* get kicked out next then Nadia and Victor and than Michelle any thoughts?

There are a few reality shows that I like. Survivor and Fear Factor are the only two that I can think of right now.

But I agree, most of it is crap and there is way to much of it.

Whatever happened to "I Love Lucy"?  smile

Most people here(including myself) don't watch Big Brother because we're simply not that stupid.

I Love Lucy isn't any better.

I would rather see "Who Wants to Be A Millionaire?" being crammed down our throats again. That wasn't a bad show. But this reality TV stuff doesn't provoke any intellectual stimulation. Fuck it.
