I can hear it in the background, those giggly girls are driving me frickin crazy already.Still looking on the bright side, I've just been informed their shower has glass doors. What a thoughtful wife I have.

Re: No TV for the rest of the summer!

It's mindless rubbish and shouldn't be on our screens why don't we refuse to watch and it will soon go away........may have a peek just to check those glass doors are H&S approved though....

Re: No TV for the rest of the summer!

It is truly a waist of air time and am shocked at just how quickly it has come round again! But that said it is not quiet as tasteless as watching terminally ill people competing for an organ donation!

Re: No TV for the rest of the summer!

My TV watching has been drastically reduced since I binned Sky.

I download and watch whatever US TV I want
via iTunes(US) [24, Lost, Battlestar Galactica, House]
and just tune into BBC for news/docs and ITV for a bit of
football and F1.

Direct download is the future. **** adverts and **** Sky!

Re: No TV for the rest of the summer!

I like BB.

I use the excuse that I am a Sociologist and that it is a vital experiment in communal living and human relationships.

Actually it is merely A cheap moneyspinner for C4. Who cares, it makes great telly imo.

Also, just to undermine my own arguement further, how foxy did Davina look last night?

Re: No TV for the rest of the summer!

garbage, utter garbage, and those girls aren't that good looking. If my wife was on there parading around in her underwear she'd look better than all of them

I like Davina McCall though

Re: No TV for the rest of the summer!

big brother is a big bag of sh!te, but davina mccall ROCKS she's an absolute honey, in a slightly flawed kind of way that makes her even better

i, too, have lost the tv for the next 12 weeks but it doesn't really bother me as i hardly watch it anyway. summer evenings + wifi internet + bilge on telly = park me arse in the garden with a drink for the evening (or the pub if its raining)

What kind of men are you, that you would let other halves/fruit of your loins fill your front room with useless, meaningless drivel? Shame on you!

Re: No TV for the rest of the summer!

Problem is it's only aired because it's popular. Luckily all in my family think it's pap (although my 16-year-old could change her mind at any time )

Thankfully even the missus has gone off it now.

Re: No TV for the rest of the summer!

Ian, if you have an aerial near the computer: for £11 I got a USB plug in freeview receiver with brilliant software that gets all terrestrial channels. "DVB-T dongle usb2". Recorder and time shift as well.

huge (but nice ass)

my main problem with this is that my ex lets the kids watch it and they think I'm a barstard for not letting them watch it

I argue "I don't think 11 yr olds should hear language like that all the time" - her view is they say worse themselves in the playground

i did!!! at that age

but I still don't think it's right
