    So, Big Brother is upon us again now for EVEN longer.....

    Whats your thoughts on the complete and utter not boxes?

    Would you ever want to be on it and would you take ur instrument? I'm sure a good chorus of reveille would go down GREAT at 6 am ever morning!!!

    From what I've seen tonight they are either porn stars, really obtuse gay stereotypes (trust me I know) or complete fruit at nut cases, it is a prerequisite for being on it though isn't it......

    You could do with a poll in there. ;)

    I am so totally not bovvered! But working in an office fully of tv watching gossipy women, I suppose it's all I'll hear about all day at work tomorrow. :( Ah well.

    I watched their grand entrances and sorta thought to myself ... :oops:

    - only highlight was the growing look of despair on the first girl's face as the circus rolled into town! Anyone fancy a game of charades?

    No. Sorry I just CBA. I watched the first series, and it was basically people sleeping, talking about nothing in particular or shouting at each other. If nothing else it showed that my life is pretty typical, and no matter how "wacky" we are or think we are, your average Joe doesn't make interesting telly.

    As for taking your instrument on there...well I guess the movement could do with every ounce of publicity it can muster so maybe a couple of bars of Resurgam (not the silent ones obviously :rolleyes: ) or Year of the Dragon etc might help.

    Seriously now, if there was someone on there who was passionate yet serious and informed about banding it might help, but only if that person was young, "fit" and generally TV friendly.

    I agree with you Ian, it would be good for the movement, but like you say the would have to be "fit" and tv friendly, someone people could relate to....I drink loads and shout loudly seems to be the consensus

    Definitely no. Already feel that I have heard enough about it from pupils to last the whole series.

    Can't stand the programme and I am thinking of emigrating for the next 13+ weeks!

    I have no intention of watching it but I will always know what it going on as the girls in the office have been soooo exited about it returning to TV that I will know the ins and outs and can't avoid their conversations.

    Definitely "Not Bovvered" here.

    I watched the first 10 minutes last night and saw the first two talentless freaks being sent into the house. I just feel embarrassed for them - it is painful. How can they not know that - rather than being fun, wacky, wild, sexy, interesting (or however else they describe themselves) - they are actually insane, boring, unattractive and a complete waste of TV airtime?

    I hate television that makes me cringe. The first series was quite interesting because it was a fresh new idea with (relatively) normal people and as experimental TV it worked. But when the first series ended the experiment was over, and they should have stopped it then.

    No time for it whatsoever. Tis summer (or will be soon) throw the TV in the bin and get out and enjoy yourselves.

    Lol, Can't believe some of the people they have put in the house this year. I used to enjoy it in the early years but its just been going on too long, can channel 4 not think of something else to put on??? Imagination is really lacking...........having said that, I'll properly still be turning it on!!

    I just think your life must be dull if you're more interested in a group of people sat in a house. Anything decent is usually covered over with sounds of traffic and birds twitering anyway.
    There's much better television to be watched

    Did she apply again to get on it?

    I really could not give a monkeys about big brother. It was mildly interesting in the first series when it was a brand new idea but it is just a tired old format now that does nothing to stimuate my interest.
    Why would I waste any of my life watching a load of idiots sleep? It is verging on voyeurism in my mind.
    I have far more interesting things to do in my life, like... anything!
    In my view, the people who get obsessed about it have something missing from their own existence.

    I tuned into BB7 last night to see the fruit-loops enter the house. I must admit I too say every year that I'm not gona watch it, but usually get hooked in the last few weeks.
    It bugs me in the early weeks when everyone's just trying to be heard over everyone else, trying to be the most outspoken, outragous freak.
    But, I don't know why it is that I always end up getting hooked? Probably because its one of the main topics of conversations in the office and if you want to talk to someone during the day, you've just gotta know whats going on!

    I've no intention of watching it, and I'd rather gnaw off my own leg than appear on it. It really is the most mindless, cheapskate television. It was a mildly diverting concept the first time round, but has degenerated into an exercise in taking the most pathetic TV wannabes and utterly humiliating them in the interest of entertainment.

    So that'll be "no" then. ;)

    Noooooo!!! Why do we, the great British public want to watch a bunch of randomers trying to be "cool" and "wacky" sat around in a little house all day, in the desperate hope that something vaguelly interesting might happen?!?!
    I really don't understand the whole concept of the thing - please help me!!!!!!
