Big Brother

BigBrotherLogoCBS’ summer isn’t really complete unless they’re airing the newest 3-month installment of Big Brother, one of the older reality shows still around which also still gets great ratings.  I wasn’t a regular viewer until the end of Season 5, thanks to Sgt Jenny.  Since that time, I’ve been hooked (even watching the terrible, TERRIBLE Winter Season during the Writer’s Strike).  Hooked, I tell ya!  I’ve written about it in random ways through the years, with some of those writings preserved on this here site while sometimes I wrote about it on my own website’s forum, which tragically kept failing and I gave up on.  Anyway, I’m gathering my writings on this page so it’s somewhat easier to find in the future!

459nwVKThis season ended up being a much more pleasant one after the shitshow of Season 15.  Only a few strategic players though which left the gameplay pretty lackluster – YET!  The winner played masterfully and it was a textbook example of brilliant plotting and effective social gaming.

big-brother-15-premiereEpisodes I recapped are listed below.  Since I’m doing this summary page a year later, I have no idea which week these pertain to, but I’ve put in Episode # info for some relative reference.  What a shit show this season ended up being!  So many terrible people and a winner you felt pretty sketchy about in the end.

 Season 14 – Summer 2012

Season_14_house_guestsA season with a mix of veterans-as-coaches-for-awhile and newbies, it played out fairly dramatically with some non-voting evictions, epic game moves, and pretty great personalities. You’d never expect who actually wins the season to be the victor!
