I'm interested to hear that this season is badly rated - I must admit I don't look at ratings but it's just as ubiquitous in papers and magazines over here as it always is, so it doesn't seem that way to me!
I think they probably made a mistake doing the all-girl thing to start with as some people probably tuned out rightaway, but I've stuck with it and my wife and I both agree that this is one of the best series in years!
I particularly like the fact that "Big Brother" seems to have a wicked sense of humour this year, making some hilariously sarcastic comments to housemates in the diary room, and doing some really funny things like the 7 deadly sins task, I was wetting myself during that one last night!
Anyway, I'm still watching and hope you guys don't give up! It has to be said though that Charley is possibly the most annoying housemate ever to exist in BBUK history and how she has managed to escape eviction until now is a mystery to me! She is just the worst type of person, actually she reminds me of Jade a lot in her stupidity, her over-inflated sense of her self-importance, her inability to talk to anyone normally without blowing it up into a huge fight, her complete unwillingness to listen to a word anybody else says... plus let's add into the mix her inability to stop preening herself in mirrors and her horrific jealousy if anyone gets more attention than her...!!
Anyway, I'm off home in a moment to hopefully download and watch last night's BBUSA premiere (there's a good overlap this year so we can all share the woes of having to download our favourite TV shows together!!)
Mind you, I don't think the UK puts out much world-class programming that you guys all clamour to get hold of, at the last count I was downloading about 13 series from the States that I can't watch over here (or I'm too impatient to wait for the newest episodes!)
