I thought this would generate a bit of discussion. What do you think of the Big Brother TV series (either original or the one in your country). Personally I think it's not as good as it used to be but I still watch it just to see the crazy things that go on.

I'm still waiting for a Reality Show where the "Contestants" don't actually know that they're on a Reality Show.

Regardless...I find Big Brother to be made or broken by its Housemates. Though I would like Big Brother to say some more offbeat things, such as:

"This...is Big Brother. I'm hungry."

And the like. Just to confuse the Housemates.

Not wanting to offend but... don't talk to me about big (stupid, fat, annoying, bad, annoying, should-never-have-been-brought-to-australia) brother. I mean seriously what's the point. Of course I've never been a fan of "reality" TV.

There is no point - but I still watch it for some reason. Maybe it's because I always want to see what's gonna happen next.

Reality TV is the worst and by far the lowest form of entertainment, ever.

There, Nido summed it up. It is just plain pointless! I mean who wants to watch someone else have a life when you could be out there having your own. In short... if you watch reality TV, get a life.

[size=0]thanks...[/size]Well, I also watch "The Royle Family" which is a comedy based on real life stuff. Basically they just sit there watching the TV and I like that for some reason.

I wouldn't say "Big Brother"....I would actually say "Bad Brother". Its hopeless, I hate it. Sorry for those who enjoy it (though there wasn't a single vote for GOOD)

I think that it is horrible, along with ALL reality TV. Not one Reality TV show has yet to appeal to me. I agree with Nido totally.

I completely DISAGREE!!

The Apprentice was one of the best reality television series ever!!
"You're Fired!!" - Donald Trump

Yes - Survivor, The Contender, Gilligan's Island (and that is a reality tv
series; i'm not talking about the television show 30 or some years ago),
Big Brother, Fear Factor, The Cut and Making The Cut aren't the greatest,
but to say that ALL reality television series are bad, well, that's just
taking it a bit too far (in my opinion, to say the least).

There was one "reality" show that I liked, and for good reason. All these stupid shows claim to be "reality," but there's nothing realistic about them at all. It's all total BS, but they still call it "real."

However, "The Mole" was different. They didn't try to pass it off as real. It was an adventure, a puzzle game, and just plain cool. Insane challenges, high-tech challenges, and, oh yeah, one of the players can't lose because they're undermining everything, including the winnings of the other players! That was awesome! And then, they went and stopped in the middle of the second season, tried to pick it up again like a year later, and then tried a "Celebrity" edition with non-celebrities. Way to go, ABC. Great job ruining the one cool "reality" show we had..

Oh, and to stay on topic, Big Brother used to be cool. Used to be, like the first season... MAYBE the second...

Joe Schmo and The Apprentice are by far the only reality shows that I will watch. The others are just stupid. Big Brother, I caught that on TV, after five minutes I was so confused I just ate food. :shock: Reaility TV is getting out of hand.
