    Got to say that this series is by far one of the best series in years... I wish more people were watching...

    Hello Mister! Is there any way I can watch it here in Oz? I have had a YouTube search and can't find anything.

    Other video sites are available.

    Not sold on the cast yet but do like how they've taken what is actually a fairly simple twist and then incorporated it into virtually every element of the game. Obviously this is CBS and by week 3 they'll have probably forgotten about it but so far so good - though I would say the premiere felt a bit pointless. It was essentially a separate one off game and the show itself really didn't begin till episode 2.

    I actually like this cast... They seem fairly normal, less obnoxious, and more mature than in previous years... I agree with you on the twist... That said the only way I see BB ditching it early is if it starts to become redundant and getting in the way of the progression of the show... I think they've really found a winner in this twist so I'd be surprised if they suddenly dropped it... As for the premier I actually didn't mind it although it was a bit fast paced... IMO if they needed a first week eviction they handled it better than BBCAN cramming an entire weeks worth of content into two episodes...

    YouTube is the shits for trying to watch anything these days... Like Brekkie said I'd try finding an alternative "tube" site or torrent it...

    Thank you naughty boy, I will try and torrent it. I am a full techno tard, my son had to write me step by step instructions on how to illegally download. The fact I still refer to it as "illegally downloading" further demonstrates my point...

    Paul and the producer's interference is ruining it. He would have been evicted straight away without their help.

    This weeks Veto Comp is one of the best they've done in years - the show is so much better when it has a bit of originality rather than reusing the same comps year after year, and as with most things in TV the simplest concepts are the best. It was essentially an observation quiz, but get a question wrong and you have to complete a challenge before moving on.

    Just because a twist in the game "helped" Paul doesn't mean production had "interfered" whatsoever... Production clearly stated what the twist would entail going in to this series AND production clearly explained what impact the power would have before the public voted to award the power...

    So? It was obvious he was going in, there's no way that every HG would turn down 25,000, on top of that they had anonymity anyway.

    Then he was able to give out 'friendship' bracelets to try and get some on his side.

    Several people they chose to go in the house were already big fans of his apparently.

    The edit has largely been about him so far.

    Plus he was always going to win that vote for such a ridiculously big advantage and the producers knew it, he took part in the season before and so will obviously have a bigger fanbase that all the others who are new to the BB audience. It was the most predictable result ever. A fairer way would have been to at least have people able to submit negative votes as well as positive, then those who didn't want him to get all the power could have negated it.

    It was good but negated by the fact that it was completely under Paul's control and so not really competed for. The problem of the random draw result for veto deciding an eviction early happens again.

    Once again production were upfront about the twist before it happened... Just because the twist helped someone along in the game doesn't mean they were interfering... You're only upset because the outcome of the twist didn't go the way you wanted it to... Now change your panties and get over it...

    So no surprise Battle Back is back - it worked quite successfully for them last year and we all know with BBUSA is fans seem to like something it'll return every year for the rest of eternity.

    What they haven't clarified is what happens if this weeks temptation, the Halting Hex, is used, which would mean no eviction this week. Presumably the Battle Back becomes just for the first three evictees, although possible they make an evictee returning a consequence of a temptation. Of course though they'll take it (we all know the temptations are set up on the presumption they'll take them), and an evictee will return.

    Julie said something at the end of the last episode to the effect of having the HG's doing something to stop the battle back from happening...
