Big Brother

I have a confession I am watching the damned show.

I was hip I didn't watch Richard Hatch win Survivor. I made the mistake of watching a single show in the next season. Just to see what the buzz was about. It was TV Crack I got hooked. Shame on me. I was content to watch Survivor through the the next fw years a guilty pleasure for one who hates commercials.

Then this year because of where I am and who I am sharing space with I got exposed to Big Brother a watered down version of Survivor. I am lower than low I am actually enjoying this piece of low cost reality TV that is putting writers and TV stars out of work. I am so ashamed.

I don't watch fires or car wrecks (train wrecks are an exception), but it is like a mystery where the culprit is not discernable until the last few pages, there is an unpredictability factor.

I know this admission excludes me from the ranks of real serious bloggers but I have to own up. I want Jun to go up against Allison. Robert is a wimp... And the thing is I can be all wrong. Maybe that is the hook. How many movies or television shows actually surprise you? Most of us figure it out way before it is over who done it or what cliche the show is acting out.

Woe is me. I will kick this habit. I promise, not to blog about what is going on.

Yes, everybody does seem to enjoy watching a good train wreck, don't they? Fairly addictive in and of itself.

Good luck breaking the "Big Brother" habit. I myself fell victim to "For Love or Money," but I figure it's excusable. Valuable sociological research there. Implications vast. Highly important to my future studies and interaction with human race. I recommend you regard your reality t.v. viewing in the same light. You'll sleep better.
