Am I the only one here who despises Big Brother?

I really really hate Big Brother. Am I the only one?

I'll be fair though, there are some good aspects of the show. I mean, the concept of putting those from the shallow end of our gene pool in a house and separating them from the rest of society is a noble concept, but to then dedicate hours upon hours of TV time to them is ridiculous. The house should be bulldozed after the contestants go in. That's at least the next logical step if anyone believes in Darwinism.

Some of the most stupid, trashy people get on that show, and I think the warning of "adult themes" prior to each episode is very misleading. It's not like we're hearing about the stock market or anything remotely "adult" My 6 year old brother has provided more intelligent and relevant insights than the collective group of every previous contestant on that show.

I was watching Rove and heard someone mention that this lot would be the most intelligent group yet on the show, which is a bit of a pointless statement. Does that mean this years contestants are a group of inanimate objects? I think the chair will win this year... everyone loves the chair.

Anyway, I'd rather spend my 7:30 time watching Rolf Harris paint the Queen on ABC. Is anyone else with me?

I watched one cycle of American "Big Brother" and that was enough for me. I find the people and the show terribly boring. To make things worse theres no nudity in the American version so no thnx.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

I enjoyed the first season of it here, but then I just couldn't get into the next one, because you had people in series 2 trying to be like those in series 1, and it was annoying. If they didn't do it every year, it would be OK. It's like Idol, do it evry two years or so, but not every year

I like the concept but its all about the contestants...

In the UK series 3, 5 & 6 were very entertaining. Series 4 was catastrophic.

i completely agree with everything u say but i still watch it

its just a comfort thing, its been there since i was in grade 7 when i was completely obsessed with reality tv. since then i have completely cut down my intake, with big bro being my only weakness. the beginning of big brother each year signals that the first depressing part of the school year (february-april) is over. it makes me cringe like nothing else but it gets me through the winter.

You're definitely not the only one. Can't stand it either.
