  • Throw some strangers into a house and give them no contact with the outside world. Well, it started out mildly amusing but with no plot to lose it desperately needs to find one now.

    What started out as a half interesting social experiment hosted by a pop cultural feminist writer has ended up a boring annual rehash fronted by a producers' puppet. What made reality show Big Brother interesting to begin with was the thought that these strangers off the street could literally go off the rails and give us some long needed surprises as their unscripted antics and personality clashes were brought to the boil. With a dozen or so people locked away from the rest of the world, with every move scrutinised, there was a promise of something, especially as they were verbally poked and jabbed by anti-TV personality host Gretel Killeen. But somewhere along the way the spaontaneity has eroded away. Soon the highlight became watching to see when Killeen would next spit the dummy because one of the housemates again went against the producers' wishes: an unexpected political protest was chastised by Killeen, a gay kiss was cut away from, discussion of a sexual incident was quashed and Killeen continually spoke over any householder who dared speak up against producers' manipulation of housemates. Hey, this is the stuff that's interesting! Instead, housemates were auditioned as if for a catwalk cattlecall, housemates attempted to use their time in the house to launch embarrassing attempts at showbiz careers (singers, actors, quiz show host wannabes crawling out of every corner of the BB house and live feeds became heavily censored. Yaaaaaaaaaaawn.
