It's on for fucking aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages!
I was living in Spain when it first started over there and loved it as I learnt loads of really good conversational Spanish and slang from it. Came back to UK just as it was starting here and raved about first series...then it all went a bit weird and now I just can't bear it!

I wish, I wish, I wish...
"THIS year's Big Brother house is to include quirky new features including a toilet in the middle of the livingroom floor and a room full of tigers."
"Bengal tigers overpower their prey before applying a 'suffocation bite' to the neck. The compound, at Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire, has been described as "topsy turvy" with beds nailed to the wall, a fridge at the bottom of the garden and a beanbag instead of an oven."
"But the producers admit the the most controversial aspect will be the six ravenous, 30 stone, man-eating Bengal tigers, housed in a room marked 'chocolate storage area'."

I wish it was consigned to a bad phase of tv history where it belongs
I hat the way it has to take over everything everywhere and it is awful...can't think of anything to say about it and it has such a strong influence on everyone who watches and news??? tv and life in general
I've been dreading it too

My cousin works for the TV company that produces it, and had to assist during the selection process for contestants. She said it was absolutely awful - they have just gone for every kind of freak. Yes, you can turn off the TV when it's on, but what about the papers, the news, the conversations of others.... I dread it, too. It's like it takes over the country every summer and it's so BOOOOOOOOOOORING

I can't believe that people have got the balls to talk about it IN PUBLIC ... to openly admit they watch it and then compound it be inviting another person to discuss it with them
'Did you watch Big Brother last night?' has got to be one of the greatest show-stoppers in the history of social conversation.
