How insane was that?!

How many of you watched Big Brother tonight (8pm on CBS)?  How totally crazy was that episode?!  You know, I sometimes forget how much editing they do in order to produce three one-hour episodes per week!  I didn’t realize how many times Chima has been in trouble for not following the rules!  Personally, when she disobeyed the rules that final time, I thought she got what she deserved (sorry for the vagueness, I’m trying to type this with few spoiler alerts)!  I still can’t over the reactions of the other houseguests though!  These people need to take a chill pill and remember that they’re playing a game!  I suppose, in their defense, it is a game that totally f*cks with their minds!  I don’t understand why so much anger is directed towards Jeff though.  He was given the coup d’etat power by America.  Not using it would have been a total crap move!  Any of the others would have used it too! 

So I should probably apologize for my lack of posting lately.  It’s been a busy summer, and most of the tv I’ve been watching, with the exception of True Blood, has all been repeats, or DVDs of tv shows in anticipation of new seasons starting soon!  I’ve got some thoughts on a few different shows I’ve watched recently that I’m hoping to share soon!  Stay tuned . . .

Coup d’etat

Okay, I totally knew they wouldn’t keep that clique thing happening much longer!  In a sense I’m a little disappointed – having the cliques working together really would have given the contestants an opportunity to pick off an entire clique or two (as they practically have with the Populars).  Some people are really going to be in trouble now that they don’t have their clique status protecting them.  I think this is where we’re going to see the Athletes getting into trouble . . . unless they can manage not to do or say anything to piss each other off!  Jeff could be toast pretty soon since he was never really “in” with his clique to begin with.  I would really, really like to see Natalie gone – she irritates me to no end! 

This new coup d’etat power sounds intriguing.  I hope whoever ends up with it actually uses it to totally shake up the game!  I hope it ends up in the hands of Jeff or someone from the Off-beats since I think they would potentially use it to really throw off the rest of the house.  In some ways though, I think Big Brother is really starting to rip off ideas from Survivor.  The coup d’etat power reminds me a lot of a hidden immunity idol!  I know the Big Brother producers want to keep the show fresh and interesting so people will watch, but for me, the draw has always been watching the psychological aspects of play, and how all the different characters interact with each other.  For me, this kind of voyeuristic pleasure never gets old!

Which clique would you be in?

I thought I’d posted already on the new season of Big Brother (airing on CBS Sundays at 8pm, Tuesdays at 9pm, and Thursdays at 8pm), but apparently that was just in my mind?  Or I didn’t look far back enough at my list of posts . . . LOL

Initially, I thought the idea of dividing into high school cliques was cute.  I can’t say I found the cliques overly original, but it was neat to see the house guests grouped together into teams.  The twist of your whole clique being safe if one member is the HOH is a good idea, though how much longer do you think that will last?  Now I’m sorry, but these cliques are basically just in name only!  I would have loved to see them take the idea to the extreme and make these cliques share the same bedroom and eat together.  As it is, only the “have-nots” are forced to room together.  Ah well . . .

My fist impressions of the people are pretty similar to what they always are.  It’s nice to see Jesse back, ‘cuz I think he’s cute.  That huge muscles look doesn’t really do it for me, but they work for him.  I think Jeff is HOT, but rather dumb.  I liked Lydia to begin with, but when she started moping and whining about being nominated for eviction the first week, I was rather put off.  I really like Kevin and Casey, particularly Casey, and hope they do well.  I don’t care for Ronnie at all, I think he’s a weasly creep.  I hate Russel with a passion, and hope he goes next.  I didn’t care for Laura at first, but then when I realized that she was really smart, and probably the only person clever enough to take Ronnie down, I was disappointed to see her voted off.

As for who will last the full summer and win the big prize, I guess only time will tell!
