Advantages: You realise how annoying whining is, and you stop.
Disadvantages: Just read the above.
Every generation has a hero, every religion a God, and so, every television show its golden boy or girl. On Big Brother, it was Mel ; she was beautiful, she was flirty, she was the one who did the kissing, and showed her bottom. Producers need someone like this in a show for the nation to get excited about, be it for love or hate, for the ratings it's essential, and it's where Castaway fails ; Sure, there's Toby & co. ll desperate for sex, and doing their best to get it, and there's Ben ; attractive, nice, very middle class, a bit wet, but very sweet ; Tanya is pretty, but moany, all have the potential, but there's just something missing ; It's boring. Nothing happens. They whinge, they fight, they accuse each other of normally unimportant misdemeanors, and it's just not fun to watch. Within ten minutes I was gazing at the TV glazed of eye as the nineteenth fight over puppies broke out, and they threatened to leave in their droves. I'm sure it seemed like an excellent idea in the planning, and it remains a fascinating sociological and psychological experiment. That doesn't make it good TV. Now, if they'd only get naked, cover themsleves in mud to make body prints, and start manipulating each other via secret notes I'd tune in........
