The only things I hate about the summer are hay-fever and Big Brother.
This thread will not go well
I haven't started this thread to be controversial, but I do get the sense that a few fellow qbn'ers consider things like Big Brother as a bit beneath them. We like to think our tastes are somehow more refined than those who watch it?
Well, I hold my hands up, as someone who is interested in human relationships and into popular culture and media, I find the whole BB thing fascinating.
- I do consider Big Brother beneath me it is made for moronic retards - I sir am not oneKidswift
- It could of been good if they remotely explored the psychological element of human behaviourKidswift
- Instead they just chased the cheap laughs and easy moneyKidswift
I found it interesting for the first two series, but after that you've seen it all I think. Having said that, a wildy vomiting pregnant wife and a two year old in bed makes going out and living a thing of the past... so we watched it last night.
What a bunch of self-adoring misfits. I feel hugely sorry for that (clearly emotionally damaged) Russian ghoul who lurches like a disease in the background. And the feisty lesbian brummy is going to have a mental breakdown by Tuesday too. The only ones who seemed like actual real and genuine people was that kid from America and the bloke from India.
I am convinced that Freddy and Wolverine are both actors, possibly Beinazir too.
I agree with what you say about the self-adoring misfits. I would like to see a far more diverse range of people in there. A wider age range would be a start.
fuck anyone who supports this garbage
I thought they'd decided not to continue?
I couldn't care less - I don't live with TV-swamped morons any more, so I won't even notice this shit this year. Bliss.
The decline of western civilisation gathers momentum.
^ In the hands of a bunch of academically minded research documentary makers something like the Big Brother format could be really amazing I think. A serious grown up version where intelligent people are brought together specifically because of individual perspectives on an intelligent issue... that could be great television.
- Thats what the first british series was like.jgilmore

- kelpie the first series was good, nothing much like it before, it was clearly interestinggjd
I hate the first 8 weeks of it, then ritually cackle my head off at the unfortunates who are then left to be abused and humiliated by the TV company.
My flatmate absolutely loves it, and has broken my once proud anti-BB stance over the last 2 years. I still hate it, but enjoy the hate more these days. The celebrity version is far funnier though.
Yes Orbit, I like your thinking. I think there is huge temptation on the producers to go for the youth angle thinking they are going to be outrageous. But, unfortunately a lot of them don't seem to have much to say.
Cheap entertainment or social experiment? I think at the moment its the wrong side of the mark.
That Noreen is a king size dick tease. I hate her. But still would!
Sophie to win!
You heard it here first!
Place your bets...
"a bit beneath them"
life's too short too short for this garbage
*heads to "Pic of the day" thread
sikma - I detect a hint of snobbery?
Yes. You probably detect a hint of snobbery.
You may as well have turned up at this thread with fucking drop shadow on your logo.
You could have won yourselves a few quid...
Time to loose the cool?
