HOUSE OF SHAME

Checking one or two of my favourite blogs, I have realised that (with the exception of a few, small furry aliens on the TV-free planet Splott) we are the only people in the universe who are NOT watching ‘Big Brother’.

Naturally, the stigma at being ‘invert voyeurs’ and the resulting sense of shame and isolation is both depressing and deeply humiliating…

I'm feeling rather proud of the fact I've managed to avoid getting sucked into Big Brother this season. It really is lowest-common-denominator TV, and yet disgustingly addictive - I suspect because seeing such desperate moronic wannabe's makes us feel good about ourselves. But it's like rubber-necking a car crash and by watching such tripe we're encouraging the makers to pander to lower and lower tastes (as seems to happen with each subsequent series). Big Brother is a mean programme, a cheap programme, and one that has no regard for its paricipants or the general public. Best avoided!

What strikes me as bizarre, Ian, is that there are armies of talented people out there expending vast amounts of energy, talent and money on writing, acting in and directing continuing drama series while 'Big Brother' is just a bunch of not particularly interesting people, living out their trivial lives in a totally phoney environment... And what does everyone watch? Er... let me think...
