I don't know whether to laugh, cry, scream or hit my head against a brick wall. :P
I find however that Channel 5 have taken this in the completely wrong direction to revive the show. We'll be seeing a summer celebrity show followed by a 'normal' show straight after from September. Then the following January it will be back for another celebrity version (assuming they decide to resume the classic format next year)... one word: OVERKILL.
This time last year I was looking forward to seeing the LAST EVER Big Brother show, now less than a year later it's back again. They should have just left it for this year and brought it back in 2012. I can see this being right run into the ground.
Saying that, Richard Desmond has paid just over £200 million for the contract for Big Brother for two years! That's double the amount he paid for Channel Five overall. They must have some hope in the show, you don't spend big money like that without expecting anything decent coming out of it.
How do I feel about this? Well I'm split on it really. When I started watching Big Brother a few years ago (BB4 or BB5 I think) I loved the show, it was funny and had a lot going for it. I'd say since the Jade Goody saga on the show it lost a hell of a lot of viewers and that's where I got bored with the show, the producers seemed to get very boring with tasks and such and it just lost the entertainment value for me.
Despite all of this like I'm a fan of Doctor Who, I will always stick by the show and tune in as a fan, regardless of how much worse it can get. Rubbish comparison I know since Doctor Who is still thriving as one of the UKs biggest TV shows, but the point remains I'll be tuning into Big Brother this summer.
Go, Just GO!
*points to the door*
WHY do they bring this excrement back! it will kill channel 5... #-o
Just when you thought it was safe to turn the TV back on, this happens. #-o
WHY. WHY WHY WHY.
Well, it's on Channel 5, so it'll die quickly. It happened to Robot Wars, although people actually miss that show.
Simple, don't watch it. It's not some force fed TV Show. :roll:
