Finally, sanity has occurred and the "social experiment", Big Brother is ending!!!!

Always believed it should have been done once or twice then died way back in the 90's (was in Holland when it first came out and it made no sense then over what it wanted to achieve) but apparently the viewing publics disagreed with me. Dreadful program full stop.

I would love to see that series @Cleoriff as I have the trilogy it's based on on my Kindle. May just have to buy the boxset when it comes out laughing

I thought it was excellent @Glory1

Vampires and witches in modern times. This is why I loved Being Human.

My other half turned his nose up at it 'asking what was this trash'?....I just gave him the death stare joy

He doesn't like Vanity Fair either.... so tends to be busy when I am watching that....lol

PS, I love the way this topic of Big Brother has turned into what we like to watch on TV...

Oh well it's an off topic topic and as long as @sheepdog doesn't mind we should be ok Bow

Good to know you're enjoying it and the subject is what attracted me to the books.

 

And you're also watching Vanity Fair yahoo Read the book twice, and have seen every TV adaptation. Loving the latest version, which I'm watching at the moment as it happens smile

Oh well, you and I have a habit of taking Off Topic 'off topic', so @sheepdog should be used to it LOL

This is true (about meandering off topic in off topic) Smiley Very Happy

Also, the reason I like the TV adaptation of Vanity Fair is the modern twist they have put on it. Brings the characters to life I think....

Not applicable

I watched it till I found out it was scripted (or part scripted) 

Not really ‘reality tv’
