Should be shot.
Or at least slapped around a bit until they come to their senses.
"The Big Brother Phenomenon" at least slightly interesting should be... I dunno, made to re-read 1984 and take sociology classes.
seems the worst of a pretty sad bunch.
I am afraid I watched Craig mauling his drunk mate (cant remember his name ...you know the winner) with horrid fascination, I actually shouted at him to leave him alone, it reminded me so much of when you are drunk and you crash comfortably somewhere (like the floor) to sleep it off and some twat comes along and starts pulling at you and fawning and fussing over you saying 'you cant sleep there' ....Why the F*** not! cos you will continue to pester me you b*s*t*D.
I also found the whole Makose thing quiet entertaining. I quite liked the young gay turkish guy, I thought when the Italian bloke was flirting with him was dead funny.
But it doesn't hold water as any kind of experiment. It's a bizarre amalgam of celebrity, voyeurism, confinement, psychological torture, pop culture, surveillance and witch hunting. How could that NOT be interesting?
Barrymore, George Galloway and Pete Burns are boring people?
So you, quite literally, don't know what you're talking about.
I want that geordie to come the church at my funeral and say to the massed congration "cremation or burial? YOOOUUU decide."
to find the phenomenon interesting.
it's another thing to actually sit through the sodding show.
i watched the first series and enjoyed it immensely - and got the point. now, inevitably, it seems they've resorted to ever-more novelty tactics to generate controversy and keep people glued goggle-eyed to it.
even from the point of view of it being an interesting sociological and social experiment, there's no avoiding the fact that for every interesting moment, there are long, outstretched hours of "kevin is lying on the sofa, scratching his ear...". for the most part, the contestants are a pretty dull, media-glossy lot, a fact intensified by the boredom and monotony of their situation. [after half an episode, the sheer visual sameness starts to do my head in.]
most of them are there for the same reason: the desire for attention and the hope of boosting their burgeoning "careers" and/or making some quick cash from the publicity at the end of it all; they're hardly a diverse and thoughtful lot venturing into a brave new world. and as for celebrity big brother - like we don't see enough of these people already. jesus.
shame on you ... what would galloway say ?
probably "the iraq war is bad" or "tony blair is a liar".
"This is an unjust happy slapping incident, and we, the British public, will not tolerate it Mr Blair!"
this show once had died after the first couple of years,And yes, watching self obsessed tits like Barrymore and Burns could be classed as boring.
Television for people who have very little of any substance going on in their own lives.
a dreadful sign of the times.
How dare you sweep that statement under the carpet of my life.
I've got substance coming out of ears for heavens sake.
I think since the Big Brother series started way back when I've watched about ten minutes of it. I find it's like watching fish; after a short amount of time, you've seen everything they're ever likely to do.
Because humans are just like fish.
Let me write this one in my notebook.
You can learn a lot, listening to me.
Have you seen all fish? HAVE YOU?
turns into eyes. 'tis spook-eh.
,Although they have a reputation for being boring, are quite interesting, they need the correct stimulation and opportunity to display this externally of course.
'They' have also found that the animal brain areas/capacity for singing and poetry found to be present in fish ('They' measure the types of brainwaves when some human is singing and find those same type in the fish)
the fishism no more fishist remarks please
I really like where this has gone.
I'm learning. ABOUT FISH!
is a spooky word anyway.
when i started this thread it would evolve into a fish discussion.
needs to pull himself together or get out the house, i think pete burns is vile aswell
The bloke's a bully.
That is all.
should stop being such a drama queen, he's old enough to know better than to let someone as stupid as jodie bother him
programme on channel 5 tonight about 'celebrity' moments of '05.
Someone on Big Brother was fucked with a bottle...
Did anyone else know this? I didn't...
with Kinga, some tramp they found
Fuck, I'd nearly blotted her out of my memory. I bet it didn't do her any favours hygiene-wise. Mind you, her first words upon entering the house were something like 'oooh, me minge', so it wasn't as surprising as you might have thought.
