Big Brother +

I can,t believe an average of 4.5million watch this rubbish. Top headlines today who won BB, I like the other50million+ couldn't care less. X Factor another joke on tonight, how do you solve a problem like Maria(turn her off). I would like to watch some real comedy, a decent crimi(not the Bill). Eastenders, Coranation St(it was good in black & white). It's a load of rubbish on the tv, I cannot believe I'm the only one who thinks s, but what can we do?

So you didn't vote for Glyn then......;)

Not watch the programs, that's what - then they wouldn't be transmitted.

The sad fact is, millions and millions of people like watching mindless drivel, so the TV companies oblige.

It is probably just because the programs on telly are so bad that we are on this forum right now.

But it is Saturday night and I can`t help but feel that I should be doing something even better.

Thats why millions of people like myself pay Sky TV £40+ per month!!

I am quite looking forward to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tonight!

I think you got your words slightly twisted there.

"The sad fact is, millions and millions of people like watching mindless drivel, so the TV companies oblige".

Surely you meant:

The sad fact is, millions and millions of people are mindless and like watching drivel, so the TV companies oblige".

Now I've discoverd my son has not only been watching BB but also enjoying it, at a friends house.

oh the shame!

I am not a Big Brother fan myself but I think it is rather insulting to label people as "mindless" just because there tastes are rather different than yours.

They might think that sitting for hours on forums relating to computers is even more "mindless" or as my son calls me "sad". Or I need to "get a life" for enjoying the forums. "lifeless" perhaps!!

I beg to differ...

On the forums you get a range of people from all walks of life, engaging in smart intellectual debate with some humour along the way.

We all are learning new things on here and not how to be a fruitcake in front of the camera.
