Depeche221 Posted July 25, 2007 Share Posted July 25, 2007 While watching BB After Dark just now, I saw Zach comment to Kail how he wished he had a pen and paper..... Back when BB first started here in the US, the whole reason that HG's were not allowed to have pen and paper was that they were NOT allowed to discuss things like who they wanted to evict and who they were in alliances with. Back in season one (and in the original versions around the globe that our version came from), Discussion about your intentions and gameplay was only allowed in the DR. The HG's were required to make decisions on their own and not follow the "Herd Mentality". This made for very interesting conversations and much more paranoia that was real and not the "Mob Paranoia" that we see now. Thinking about it now, why doesn't BB just throw in magazines, newspapers, a few select CBS shows on the flat screen. There is really nothing left of the original concept, which was to put complete strangers in a house, of all walks of life (i.e. normal everyday people who don't have agents or, estranged relatives, or "enemies" etc") and see what would happen when they had no one else to rely on. They only had their own judgements and opinions, even if that ended up costing them in the long run. It was truly a social experiment of who would be able to adapt and evolve and maybe even learn something along the way. Now, they can discuss everything (but god forbid they sing), they can discuss their famous connections, they are told WHEN they will be on cable, they are allowed to go into the toilet to change clothes and avoid exposing themselves (oh, except when it is to the camera mans liking and it is a female....Sorry Amber, you got screwed, if they ever focused on a male HG as he was getting out of the shower this season....) (Zach knew what he was doing and that it was on air). Basically everything has changed. Except, you can't sing because CBS is too cheap to maybe have to pay royalties IF a record company or artist complained (funny, other countries don't have this problem). And HG's are WAY to aware of what is going to happen in the house during their stay. Whoever decided that the HG's should be told about the ShoToo feeds should be fired now. No, I mean NOW! You single handedly took the best new idea to flame the fires for this show and killed it. No argument. The show has lost what it was intended to be. And the new chick that took over Arnolds spot this year should be fired as well. Hell, fire Allison and let some of us fans in to run the show. They got rid of Marcellas when his ego took over, maybe it;s time to clean house and let the people who really know what would make it interesting have a shot. Sorry folks, just annoyed tonight (and all from a comment by Zach....go figure) Dep Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
