Ok listeners, I caved… to a Big Brother special!! So interesting to watch human behaviour within the ‘goldfish bowl’ that is Big Brother. If it’s sheer voyarism or an interest in celebrity… Big Brother will fill you with ‘marmite’ style polarised views from those possessed by your nearest and dearest! For instance, I simply don’t like Jedward, for their coleslaw spillages and general strange behaviour, though I can admit that I do find them interesting to watch!… more so when they’re being mildly shocked!
Watching Big Brother this week has given me an appetite for red meat cooked in caesar dressing, a desire to try to spot more whacky and pointless plastic surgery than Darren’s ‘six pack’, and a compulsion to write to Big Brother producers and advocate the use of subtitles when Paddy is talking; though I have really warmed to the lovable Irishman.
Amy Childs is flying the Essex flag, taking vanity, fake tan and her own ‘Amyisms’ into the manufactured house! From now on I shall call all irritants and irritating people ‘bugs’- it’s genious because it’s so inoffensive but at the same time it’s very funny! I’m not sure if I’ll vow to share her love of BO as advertised on a t-shirt featured on yesterday’s show!
If I were to recommend some TV to cosy up to over the next few days it would have to be:
1) BBC1 9pm tonight- The Duchess (Kiera Knightley and Ralph Fiennes play out this Princess Diana like story of stoic love and obligation- 4****)
2) C5 Big Brother tonight 10pm/ 9pm Eviction Show on Friday- will it be Sallie, Bobby or Kerry who is given the boot?
3) 8pm Saturday ITV X-Factor- for the latest in unique singing talent catch the second audition show.
Don’t forget to check out ‘local events’ on our website, or treat yourself to the cinema. The Inbetweeners in hilarious (if you’re of the correct age); Super 8 is amazing and takes you back to childhood; and Final Destination 5 is released this week for all horror fans! Also released this week is the re-make of Conan the Barbarian and the Spanish hit The Skin I live in, as well as the much awaited One Day.
If you want to share your thoughts on any of the aforementioned, tune in next Thursday from 6pm.
Let’s all go pray for sunshine!
