big brother

Anyone watching it? Im ashamed of the human race after watching their behavior.

to watch such appalling rubbish. How anyone in their right mind could possibly find it entertaining is beyond me.

No one with half an ounce of intelligence or self respect would watch it!

The FE has been remarkably understated in his assessment of the "sentience vacuum" that is Big Brother. When the trailers for it come around yet again every single year, I wish that this will be the year that the producers do something really different. Lock the doors, turn the cameras off and leave them to it...

I feel robbed............

of decent 'just before bed' tv viewing, pathetic to say the least. Give me Shawshank Redemption anyday.

are you guys are getting "Holier than thou" here?

Total rubbish that I don't watch.

Mental chewing gum at it's most saccharine.

Paint drying is marginally more entertaining - at least it has a positive result!

I certainly empathise with De Marcus - BB just means Channel 4 and E4 has continuous drivel on: I'd even rather watch repeats of Friends!! I just keep hoping for the day the execs just give up on this BB idea...

I 'dip' into it from time to time.

Certainly, I am very much in my 'right mind' - as are the majority of viewers!

Of course, it is not the most intelligent, informative of programmes - but the majority of viewers realise that and see it for what it is -'tabloid 'as opposed to 'broadsheet' and there is nothing wrong in that, for those it suits (it should not be compulsory!)and so long as that fact is recognised.

(My friend it the most well balanced, grounded person I know and she watches it more than I do!)

The worst aspect of this dreadful display of the weird is not the programme itself but the viewers who vote in the eviction process.

Anyone who spends 50 pence or £1 in telephone costs to have one or other egoistic idiot voted to stay in (or be removed from, whichever it is) this TV studio is in serious need of financial and perhaps psychological advice.

This programme generates millions and millions of pounds from viewers vote telephone charges - which all goes to making someone extremely wealthy. What does the person placing the vote/making the call get? Absolutely nothing at all.

It is said that TV phone-in quizzes are a rip off but, at least in them there is a chance, however remote, of winning something.

Reality TV? Nothing real in it at all.

...they've just found a different way of doing it.
But I agree with most here. BB is the most puerile thing on at the mo' and I refuse to be attacked by its insanity.
If it's on I'm off!
