The Official Foreign Reality Show Thread
« on: May 10, 2007, 10:13:43 AM »
For those of us that like to download foreign reality shows, let's keep a master thread of what's out there and what's coming up.

Canada, Australia, Great Britain... any reality show programing in English...

So here's my contribution...
The BBC is currently airing the third season of Apprentice U.K.  All episodes that have aired are currently available on bittorrent.

As for shows that are coming up...
- This Dog Won't Hunt (A BBC show where overweight kids are forced to fend for themselves in the Australian outback.)
- Second season of Amazing Race Asia.

Of course, I just didn't think foreign stuff could be found on US torrent sites.

That's how I get my Big Brother UK episodes.  I've seen the AU version on Torrent Download Sites recently.  I'm debating if I should watch it or not.  I have too much to do, so maybe not.

I haven't seen anything else, foreign reality TV-wise, but I'm sure it's out there.

I was a HUGE fan of "The Mole."  (Not the celebrity version, though.)

There are three seasons of the Australian version of the Mole available on bittorrent.  I've downloaded the first two seasons, and I'm stuck at about 98.6 percent of the third season waiting for another seeder.

It's not bad.  The music is different, which makes a definite difference for the worse.  The challenges in the first episode are basically a carbon copy of the American version.  Nonetheless, for fans of The Mole, this is well worth the download.

I'm still looking for the two seasons of Survivor UK... so far no luck.

I downloaded the first season of The Mole UK and I noticed a ton of similarities between the games in the US and the UK version.  It turned me off from the show, so I decided not to watch the rest.

I've now watched the second episode of the Mole Australia (season 1).  I'm pleased to say that the show was very different from its American counterpart.  It was a good episode. 

The first season of Survivor UK has just been posted on bittorrent.  I'm downloading it now, but it's a slow download.  Only 1 seed and about 30 leechers as of now.

Can you pm me a link for Survivor UK, been looking for ages?

FYI...

I've been watching Britain's Got Talent, and I enjoy it MUCH more than the American version.  The contestants just seem so much more real.  They don't feel like they've been coached their by their mothers to become the next Brittany Spears. 

And the best part... Simon Cowell is a judge. 

Here is the clip that got me hooked:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0dzZTPWrSM

Here's a clip that is 1 part disturbing and 1 part inspirational: 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8q5QJOwoG4
Reminds me of Billy Elliot.

I need to check this out, but then again, I have not even had time to download the BBUK either, so not sure if I'll get to it. I wish these shows would be shown on some cable channel.

Now that I've seen the first five episodes, I am totally enjoying Britain's Got Talent - and this is coming from someone who doesn't enjoy America's Got Talent.  I highly recommend this show.

Kilarney, I'll look for this to download and see how it goes. I love the American format, but hate Jerry Springer. Who are the judges and presenter for BGT? I thought I heard Niles and Simon or judges, correct?

Britain's Got Talent ended on Sunday night.  There were 10 episodes - so it's not a huge download.  I HIGHLY recommend this show - even if you don't like the American version.  It was the best show I've seen in a long time.

I also saw a British version of Temptation Island posted a couple of days ago.  The whole series was posted on bittorrent.  It's got Hebrew subtitles, but they aren't too distracting.

I absolutely love Britain's Got Talent just watched the first two episodes. I love the guy who did impressions and the 14 yea old that sang Unchained Melody was great, though I do wonder what will happen to his voice has he gets older with puberty and all. And the guy who sang opera who the heck saw that coming.

The X-Factor has started in Britain.  The first episode is available.  It's a derivative of Pop Idol.  So far so good.  Of course anything with Simon Cowell can't be too bad.

For those that like Hell's Kitchen or Top Chef, a British series called "Kitchen Criminals" has been posted to bittorrent.
Two professional judges take a bunch of awful cooks and turn them into real cooks.  I saw the preview, and it looks good. It looks like there are eliminations.  At the end, the final contestant has to put their cooking against two real chefs and fool a bunch of critics.

I can't wait until the Apprentice Africa comes out!

Until then... if you haven't seen the British version, you're missing a great show.  There have been three seasons, all of which appear to be available on bittorrent.  It isn't as commercial as the American version - which makes for a great show.

I would love to watch some foreign reality television. I was able to download three episodes of The Mole Australia from VEOH, but not hte whole series. It would be great to have a thread here to list the web site to view these series. I'm sure some of the foreight networks post episodes like CBS does with Innertube.

I've been downloading Shipwrecked, which is a UK variant of Survivor.  I believe it's the 6th season that's airing right now.  As usual, it's available via bittorrent.

If any of you are serious about watching foreign shows, you have to start using bittorrent.  It's really as simple as that.  What little you can find on Youtube and other sites, is not nearly as good quality.
