    BB/CBB UK - Rewatch discussions

    It's interesting to think how swapping the casts of BB3 and BB4 would have panned out. The BB4 cast probably needed the bigger twist like the divide to create a bit of interest whilst the BB3 cast would likely have been fine left to their own devices.

    BB/CBB UK - Rewatch discussions

    I still think BB4 should have built on the huge ratings the divide twist bought in on BB3 and developed it further - either more extreme divides as in Germany, or the two house idea as in Australia at the same time. Sadly they seemed to listen to those who moaned about it more rather than...

    BB/CBB UK - Rewatch discussions

    Yes, C5 did a good job with the outdoor sets and TBF the accompanying indoor set, especially considering how small the space was. Indeed C5 did a good job with the houses too - it was just the production that was generally lousy. Obviously we'll never know what would have happened had they...

    BBAU 2023: Promos and other news (includes spoilers)

    Sadly as they've "won the year" ratings wise according to the accountants at least it's a strategy that probably works, though they're basically the recycle bin for other channels hits.

    BBAU 2023: Promos and other news (includes spoilers)

    Seven seem to like shorter series now, though surely Big Brother and say two other reality franchses airing about 4 weeks each end up costing more than one series of Big Brother done properly.

    BB/CBB UK - Rewatch discussions

    They kind of experimented with that in a way occassionally when they had the lounge in the garden separate from the main house in a couple of series so the evictee had to walk through the house alone to exit which somewhat had the same effect, but I could see what you suggest working, especially...

    BB/CBB UK - Rewatch discussions

    You'll see for myself but being an old school fan I do think BB4 is the only time they ever came close to the eviction set up they had at Bow. I do think that added separation between the house and the crowd just makes all the difference in emphasising the "cut off from the outside world"...

    29 days - god, wonder how many weeks Seven will stretch that out for. If they stuck to their 3 evictions a week structure during recording guess that is potentially 12 evictions (or 9 evictions, 3 fake evictions!) - so probably around 16 rather than 20 housemates, unless they are playing in pairs.

    BBAU Rewatch

    And then didn't he get his own late night call and lose game show?

    The Traitors AU

    The UK version has just premiered and I'm really impressed with the format and the casting. Looks really promising. Worth noting as well the format won a prestigious Rose D'or award at the weekend for Best Reality/Factual Format.

    I do have a soft spot for CBB2 - housemate action wise it's on the quiet side but I do like how it was produced and presented, especially how the look was linked to BB3 but still completely unique thanks to a change in colour scheme.

    THE COUCH - TV Chat Thread

    ITV have launched a few of these with their new streaming service ITVX. I think they make sense for something like The Chase where you just want a random episode rather than watch the series 3 boxset, but not so much for a reality show or series that needs watching start to finish. As you...

    The Challenge Australia

    Well The Project has another role of the dice now that Sarah Harris is moving from Studio 10. Agree the latter half of the year hasn't been great but at least Ten are trying and with new formats rather than the recycle bin strategy that Seven has. Hunted obviously has done well enough to...

    The Challenge Australia

    8.30 seems a bit generous.

    BB/CBB UK - Rewatch discussions

    A behind the scenes VT from the final C4 episode. Relatively spoiler free other than footage of a couple of quitters. Interestingly Davina liked my comment on how the eviction shows were much better pre-BB5 when they regularly featured Davina going behind the scenes in the camera runs...
