Big Brother To Be Axed

Recommended Posts

Channel 4 axes Big Brother after 10 years

in the comments, David Harrisson says it for me..

Fantastic news.

Utter drivel, fronted by a woman who gets paid a fortune for marching towards the camera while yelling, featuring self-absorbed / inarticulate people that you'd run a mile from if they started talking near you in the pub.

10 seconds of this piffle is almost enough to make me break the TV set.

That's without mentioning a) the announcer with the exaggerated Geordie accent or B) the hours of live footage of people sleeping (although at least then they're not talking).

Any chance that Channel 4 can recall what it used to be good at, then put some quality programming on instead?

one comment perhaps inadvertantly coins the word 'drivial'

After 10 years, even the brain dead viewers have had enough.

So there is hope.

if they're trumpeting so loudly about this being cancelled, it worries me what heinous piece of cr@p they've got lined up to replace it.

Stephen Fry noted that Peter Bazalgette's great great grandfather Joseph Bazalgette created the sewer system in central London to pump sh1t away from people's homes. Peter, through Endemol, created Big Brother to pump sh1t back into people's homes.

Gotta love Stephen.

Words can barely express how happy I am to have this rubbish removed from the TV.

The brothers of late pop star Michael Jackson are to appear in a reality TV series, US network A&E has announced.

It's gonna be called 'Dead Brother'

Where do the Gibb brothers go on holiday?

Cornwall...it's the last place they can watch Maurice dancing.

It seems the plutocrats want to give the sheeple their brains back for a while to send them back to work and fix their economy. <_<

Mr Bellamy said the loss of Big Brother would leave a "huge hole" in the station's schedules

No, Mr Bellamy, Big Brother is a huge hole in the schedules, a huge black hole that sucks in the nation's intelligence and spews out shit.

Credit Crunch is Big Brother's illegitmate child.

Are you furious it has been on for so long?

Fury is the wrong word. It's just sad and demeaning to the individuals. It's sad that Endemol keep the exploitation and just as sad that people let themselves be subjected to it.

perhaps the most irksome thing is the celebrity spin off that comes from it. Someone appears in BB, which launches them to a year or two of low class soft porn shots for the Daily Sport.

If anyone remembers the C4 program 'The Word' - there was a segment each week called 'I'd do anything to be on TV' - little did they know that this was the forerunner fo Channel 4's output for the next 10 years.

Ironically, not an hour ago, I checked to see if anyone had registered TVBollocks.com or MediaBollocks.com domains.

Not yet they haven't. ;)

He seems to know an awful lot about the programme. Bet he gets through a lot of TV sets.

There's a classic letter in the latest Viz. It goes something along the lines of "has anyone seen LaToya Jackson recently? I've got a £50 bet that needs settling"

+1

Like an earlier poster said, the first time round was actually quite entertaining but from the second onwards was just complete and utter you know what...

The Word brings back memories - was that the licking of the fat woman's armpits whilst on a bike incident? :blink:

What I dont get is why you freaks are so happy a programe is going off that you dont watch anyway?

mongs

:lol:

Personally I never watched it after the 1st one, avoided all contact with it as much as possible, though with newspaper space dedicated to it and adverts and spin offs all over the place this took effort.

I am a mong though because I am glad it's finally been culled. At least I won't have to go out of my way now to avoid it.

:lol:

I'm very sorry to see it go. It's been fabulous entertainment and it seems such a shame as this series has been one of the best IMO.

Of course I'm sure there were also people who were sorry to see Bedlam close it's doors to the paying public and I have to admit the entertainment has consisited of watching fragile, deluded people slowly disintegrate over the course of 13 weeks.

It has an atavistic appeal to darker, baser instincts. The studio audience of the spinoff shows BBLB and BBM formed a Greek Chorus while the baying crowd that assembles outside the set every eviction night, are the direct decendents of those who gathered to jeer in the shadow of the Tyburn tree.

Part soap opera, pantomime, freak show, morality play - it's been a great ride and far more entertaining then any of the other carp served up by the other channels.

For me, it's demise means I get to watch less TV as it's about all that I am prepared to watch at the moment.

Bring it back I say!
