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.

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 :o

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.

I never got into that one. When it came out in the summer I think it was on almost every night! I still like my Survivor , Amazing Race and America's Next Top MOdel.

Yeah series 4 was dreadful. They thought that if they put a bunch of normal people in the house that it would be good tele instead it was just a bunch of normal people who were really boring i dnt know why they picked such a rubbish line up but m still kind in2 BB tho

I'm kind of on the fence on this one, the ones I've watched I've enjoyed, and the ones I didn't just pissed me off.

The last time I watched it was when the Asian girl beat out the bitchy, back-stabbing blonde. And rightfully so. The Asian girl cooked for everyone and by default controlled the house. She deserved to win having to put up with those people.

I just hate all reality shows (cheap, dumb, boring etc.). They should replace these shows with live tennis matches instead.

I used to like it, but I kinda lost interest.

I'd be far happier if they chucked all the shallow ego maniacs into a house and blew them up live.

But then, who would post on this site? Not many :lol:

Oh boy ur missing out! I've seen many a nakkie clip from Big Brothers all around the world. Aus, Germany, and Sweden are my favs. :drool:

Cause America is a sexually repressed country. It's ok to see someone get decapitated but if u show a nipple that's crossing the line. :rolleyes:

How do u know u don't like something unless u try it out first? :shrug:

Why anyone would want to spend hours of their free time watching self obsessed and largely uninteresting no hopers trying to get their 15 minutes of fame is completely beyond me.

But, hey, whatever turns some of you on .................. ;)

Nope, you're not the only one. Why is it that they always choose the same type of people. I can't wait for the show to FINISH and their 2 mins of fame to be OVER!!!
