  • So many things about the CBS "Big Brother 2" series are genuine improvements over last year's version, from the set and cast to the producers and number of weekly episodes, that it's almost frightening this sequel still musters such a meager rating. Yet that's how horrid the original was. And even after these significant improvements, "Big Brother 2" is by no means worth watching. [7 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.

  • 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
