Phew.  You nearly gave me a heart attack.  Think that they'll have another Celeb BB this winter, even after the race row?

Yes, of course they will. It's just that Jade will NOT be invited back.
Or maybe she will be in a twist. LOL

Maybe they'll put in Shahbaz, just to make it up to the public.

So, how's the season going so far? I have not been able to download any of the episodes. My internet has been so slow, it's taking two days to download a 40 minute episode. Really frustrating considering I'm trying to download the new episodes of Doctor Who as well.

It's not as good as it was last year.  I miss Pete and Glyn.

So far, one of the most hated Big Brother contestants hasn't been nominated yet.  Think Ivette + JBlow, and then double that.  Once she's nominated, I think it will be a 100% vote to evict.

Some of the new male housemates are great.  Jonathan is really fun to watch, and the Twin's personalities are starting to shine.  The tasks are ehh, they could do better.

Oh yeah, and I found a blog online that has BBuk episodes on host sites.  No more Torrents!  Is it alright if I post it here on the forum?

I don't think it would be a big problem, but feel free to send me the link in a PM.
Rumour mill has it, this is a poorly rated Big Brother and lots of people are loosing interest this year.

I'll PM you the link and see if I can post it here.  I think I can, but I'm not too sure.

Bad News:  The blog was taken down today for an unknown reason.  Guess it's back to torrents for me.

Hi Guys!

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!)

Hey James!  Glad to see you again.

I agree with what you said about Charley.  Although I haven't given up, this season is so bad because of Charley.  It's like Aisleyne and Nikki combined into one.  And that result of two goods made a bad. 

As for the all-girl twist at the start, I must say it turned me off too.  When I first heard about it, I liked it.  Then I saw the first daily show.  It was non-stop bitching and complaining about the lack of boys.  Ugh.

BBusa last night was an absolute hoot!  It was one of the best launches in years.  Not since season three have I enjoyed a premiere episode of BBusa than this one.  I hope you like it too.

Are you still watching??

Charley is making this unwatchable for a big section of the UK public I think!

And the whole fake eviction thing was a big letdown - if they'd given her a normal eviction and normal interview where she'd been herself and said what she really thought, it might have been worth it to see her go back in and get ripped to shreds, but she knew something was up so she was very restrained.

I'll be back when Charley leaves I think!

I have not been checking this out this year. The contestants and the twists didn't grab me. I thought the fake eviction was a great idea when I heard about it. Sorry to hear its a let-down. How was she able to see through it?

Honestly, I'm still stuck on the week during Seany's eviction.  I've been so far behind, that I might never catch up in time for the finale.  I'll still watch it, but I might not finish until months after the finale airs. 

I've still following it online, and I might just forget about the episodes I have now and continue once Charley leaves.  You hit the nail on the head, James!  Charley is the main reason I haven't been watching.

Good news everyone!  Charley has been evicted!  And, we have new housemates!  I'm going to start watching last night's episode (and continue watching now) and watch the last few weeks after the season ends.

Woo-hoo!!!

There's been some good stuff over the last few weeks but honestly, the lasting impression is just of argument after argument...

Hopefully some of the new people will cheer things up a bit!

And Chanelle, when will you learn not to go back to Ziggy every time?!
