It's only 10 minutes in, but already I'm hooked.
urgh im not going to watch it... not just because i hate reality tv but because i know id get hooked as well
what the programme-makers say - they are all stupid
as the most expensively cruel thing you could ever do to someone
but isn't it just mean to lock them all up and have them compete for a dream they'll never be able to get?
it's just cruel.
i want a tv show where some guy in asuit sways he's from abc or nbc or whatever and tells johnny vaughn that his network wants a new british anchor and he could be the one.
they'll pay him $1m a day and all he has to do is go through some humiliating screen tests. yeah, it's a great joke, johnny.
but the programme-makers have made a big deal of stating that they're not stupid, just suggestible. they are laughing at them though. think they'll get panned, at the end of the day. and yes, i bet johnny vaughan would fall for it too if he thought there was cash and exposure in it for him. they're all tits.
would have fallen for it
I don't like Johnny Vaughn.
He strikes me as a mean-spirite sort of person.
It's not his show is it? He just presents it. It's not like he came up with the idea and funded it himself
I'd safely bet 99% of TV presenters would have taken that job. So to criticise Johnny Vaughn for presenting it is a bit silly
But yeah, it is all a bit mean. Meh!
who want to be famous for 15 mins going on reality tv shows, lacking any talent whatsoever, they signed up for this cos they thought they'd get famous and thats what will happen, if they look stupid then its their fault, i think its better to laugh at them rather than make them out to be celebrities like big brotherites etc etc
how you would be jealous of your peer group.
but that's exactly why people will watch it.
I did catch the back half of it last night and I must confess to finding the idea horribly fascinating. That's exactly the problem - every rational part of me is telling me to look away and yet I watch on, no matter how repulsed I am by the idea...
In all seriousness, I probably won't bother with the rest of it. Will be interesting to see whether Channel 4 have complete humiliation on their hands though.
as the public are getting nastier all the time.
people used to watch big brother to see how everyone would get along, now it's just to sneer at them for trying to be famous.
this is worse.
britaaaaaiiiin iiiiiiisssss shiiiiiiiiiiit
Lots of talk that theyre ALL actors, the hoax is actually on the viewers themselves....
Its definately possible.
would be the biggest hoax ever to view millions of viewers rather than 20 gullable fuckers...
still, thought it was fucking boring and johnny vaughan is worse than jimmy carr....
would be if they were actually sending them into space and then laugh in all our faces from space
blasted them all into the sun in a rocket.
like that episode of transformers that I've suddenly become obsessed with.
the first people on mars! and just leave them there.
have something to do with Cosmo?
I really want that to be true
is where that scrap metal yard full of military equipment is. Its supposed to be in gold old Chelmo
Johnny Vaughan on t4 trying defend the programme saying that the people wouldn't be humiliated, which is ridiculous.
and tell them its a hoax and ruin it, they better not, i hate people that do that.
then tell them there's no way of getting down, leave them to cycle earth for all eternity, then film the inevitable and painful social disintegration. That I'd watch.
you're such a BASTARD. i LOVE it!
ch4 has other shows ready to go if it ends early cos someone figures out its a hoax.
they get 5000 for every day they spend in "space" so 25000 basically if they fall for it, but i dont think they will be able to pull off a space launch and actually recreating being in space.
they don't NEED to recreate being in space as they've picked people who would have NO idea what being in space would be like!
They've even discounted people who like Star Trek and Star Wars. Who are these people? They want to go into space but don't even watch things sort of kind of to do with it?
did you actually watch it?
The people who are appearing on the programe answered an advert in a newspaper calling for 'thrill seekers', they only found out it was a space thing once they'd been selected.
But I didn't watch all of it. I came in halfway through, got bored and watched Lost instead.
alright then, I went and did the washing up. Happy now?
actually going to pretend they're in space?
I thought they were just going to tell them they were GOING to be in space bu reveal it before they go.
what sort of idiot believes that you can be trained to be an astronaut in two weeks?
doesn't it take like 10 years or something?
the person who shoots aliens with laser guns.
Two quotes made regardimg space by 2 separate contestants:
1)"Space is like...the bollocks!"
2) "It's going to be like Chessington World Of Adventures times by 10,000"
I was beginning to fell sory for them, but after those comments, my minds swaying.
watching it today has made me want them to suffer as much as possible. I think its the fake Russians. They have made me angry.
not only does the incident described by Caviar... show they have shit sense of timing, but what the fuck were they doing opening the window on a plane in the first place?
I was finding the thought of the contestants being sucked out of a plane window quite comforting. Good point on the helmet thingy though, maybe he'll have to shave his head.
did look amazing, where else could you find old space suits for sale in the centre of a town square?
when he said nineteen days of training, do we have to watch NINETEEN episodes of this before they go into fake space?
My attention span cant take that, I want to see them humiliated now, not in 3 weeks.
e.g. The commander who at the beginning whilst pointing out their location on the map, and the surrounding countries seemed to lose all will to live half way through, and just started whacking the map.
The fat bloke who couldn't complete any of the group building activities, surely the fact he got on must have raised a few eyebrows with his fellow contestants.
The other bloke actor who decided to ask the commander (and fellow actor) about a 'Planet X', nearly jeopardising the whole show, and my cheap laughs for the next 2 weeks.
attach them to wires whilst they sleep then hoist them up.
YOU ARE NOW IN SPACE
I was thinking that? surely they canâ€™t believe it will take off through the roof?
Then again they are very suggestible.
That was funny.
is being discontinued as a planet." (or something)
That would be an ecumenical matter
can't be arsed with shit tv whose only real aim is to put a bunch of possibly shit people [dunno, haven't watched it so dunno who they've got] in a room, point and laugh, and go "LOOK! THEY'RE STUPID! LOOK! HAHAHA! LOOOOOK!"
life is too short.
if they have a programme with the word space in it, and a spaceship, I WANT TO SEE SOME GODDAMN SPACE. f'realz, like.
it's right up there. *points at sky*
