  • What's most irritating about Big Brother 2, even more annoying than its desire to titillate, is its self-importance. These people carry on as if they were locked in a momentous event rather than just a silly game show about 12 strangers struggling to live together in a secluded house for a shot at the grand prize of $500,000.

  • The difference between "Big Brother" and its more successful high-concept CBS predecessor, "Survivor," is the difference between storytelling and rambling. [14 Jul 2000] Show More

  • The producers tried to compensate for the personality gaps with lots of close-up shots of cleavage and torsos during a swimming pool break. In addition to this old-fashioned voyeurism, cameras inside record everything. It was this spying that caused such an uproar last year, until audiences learned what lobby security people have always known from their surveillance of elevators and laundry rooms: most conversation is boring; usually nothing happens.
