Advantages: You get to see what life would be without TV - ARGHH!!!
Disadvantages: Full of moaners and whiners on the programme
When I first heard about this programme, I thought it sounded quite good - a group of people who don't know each other, stranded on a desert island. However, the perceived image in my mind was completely different to the BBC's idea of a castaway!
When I hear the word "castaway" I think of people standed without any contact with the outside world. According to the BBC though, it is putting a group of 30 people on a "remote island" which happens to be only a few miles from the mainland as well as allowing them special days throughout the year to see their families. I mean, what a joke. How can you have castaways who are able to see their families every five minutes??? I understand that there are exceptions, such as when Tammy went to see her ill Mum, but that is it. If these people decide to stay away from their families for a year, then THEY SHOULD STAY AWAY FOR A YEAR!!!
When the programme first began I quite liked it, but now I only watch it if there is absolutely nothing else on TV-I may even subject myself to something thoroughly boring such as "Delia Smiths How to Cook" (no offence to all you budding chefs out there)rather than Castaway 2000. I don't think that the BBC understands how by allowing the castatways to do non-castaway stuff such as visiting the mainland and families, viewers are just not interested. Do they really think that a bunch of moaners on a island who fight with each other all the time about pathetic stuff like "whos going to peel the potatoes" is going to keep the public amused??? I think not.
