A Couple of Odds And Ends

There have been a lot of questions coming our way these past few weeks, so I thought I'd throw a quick post up here. How the hell have you all been this winter, by the way? Personally, I have a new side gig that is taking up a lot of time, which is why...

No, I'm not watching Big Brother Canada. Ok, I take that back. I'm watching the actual broadcasts on YouTube. I'm not, however, watching the feeds. There are many factors why, including the new second job as a music writer for the local newspaper (Argus Leader). This is also a much busier TV time than summer, so I am constantly struggling to empty my DVR.

The main reason I'm not watching, though, is pure lack of interest. Yes, it is an all-noob cast, so one of my Big Brother US dreams is being fulfilled up north. Outside of that, I don't have much positive to say. They have completely copied the U.S. formula - HOH, POV, Have-nots, slop, etc. They've even recycled all of the speeches before the various ceremonies, including the much derided "who wants to see my HOH room?" There are a couple of elements borrowed from other countries, though. There's a telephone AND a talking moose that give the players tasks to win dinners and booze.

I'm also not taking a liking to the cast. I don't really hate anybody, though, except for possibly the recently evicted glitter king, Gary. I just haven't developed any positive OR negative feelings about the rest of the cast. I have nobody to root for or against. They're all just dead weight.

One of this site's other contributors, Ash, is a big, big fan, though, so if you do want updates then you should click her twitter link on the left side of this page.

Ok, now on to the other big news. Last week, it was announced that CBS was taking over this year's live feeds. They will not be handled by Superpass. Obviously, this raises a million questions, and we really don't have any answers. As more details emerge, I'm sure Mike will be quick to update the site, and we may even do an early Big Brother Gossip Show episode to explain everything. 

Don't forget, though, that this season will be starting a couple of weeks early. The season premiere is currently scheduled for June 26. What does that mean for this season? Who knows, but it does indicate that there will probably be even more contestants than last year.

What would you like to see happen this year? Do you disagree with my critique of the Canadian version? Have at me, my friends. It's been awhile since I've had hate mail. :)

Preseason Press Day House Tour and Interviews on Super Pass

As of about 3am this morning the Press Day tour videos of the "new" Big Brother 14 house were posted (Scroll down for one video).  I won't lie, it was much tougher for me to get through this year than it usually is.  Most of it was more about Rachel than it was about the house, and, of course she brought "BRENNON" with her.  I don't suppose she could leave her wart at home just to do press day.  The video of the "mini game" and tour is mostly just scripted DRs of Rachel saying things like "Nobody messes with MY man" etc..  To my knowledge this is the first time former house guests have been allowed in on press day to play the game with the other people.  Rachel does get evicted, so there is THAT.  Not soon enough though in my humble opinion.

The interview with Grodner in the producers video is foretelling of this season I think.  No one has said that Rachel is definitely going to be there, but I think we can all safely say there are most likely going to be former rehashed house guests, and Grodner was definitely pushing the Rachel idea saying that last season was one of her favorites "because Rachel got to go from being hated to loved". I feel like we might be doomed, but then again I have been very wrong before, so maybe I will be pleasantly surprised.  I can only hope.

The house on the other hand is kind of cute this year.  Some photos of it were leaked earlier in the week and can be seen a few blogs back. There is also a video of Reality Nation's Spicy Pants giving a tour of parts of the house.  I have seen the theme called "Tokyo pop" and also just "Space".  Either way I kind of like it. It's not completely redone or revamped or anything spectacular. They did get a new fridge..but that's about it. The rest of it is just painted over as usual. It's cuter this year though.

Despite my feelings of horror that we might be gearing up for another season of Rachel and God forbid Brendon, I am actually starting to get excited to see the new cast! I kind of like this mentors theme rumor because I think it might mean that the rehashed former House Guests don't necessarily LIVE in the BB house and get to play.  Maybe the actual House Guests will all be all new faces and OH wouldn't that be as refreshing as a cool misty breeze in my face during this 100 degree weather we are having down here.

If you would like to watch the videos and experience the horror (or joy if you are a fan..I know there are some Rachel rooters out there) yourself you can check them out here: http://superpass.real.com/big-brother-14/preseason/house-tour .  If you don't have your live feeds  you better get on it before the Early Bird Special is off and the price goes up!!

Are you guys excited?!

Big Brother Superpass News and Information!

I can now tell you almost everything there is to know about this upcoming season with Real and watching the live feeds.

Where to start?  First off - the early bird special.  The links will be available on June 17th.  The price will be $29.99 and that will allow you to watch the entire 'season' of Big Brother on the "Live Feeds."  The links will be available very soon and will work up until and through July 7th.  If you plan on watching much of the feeds it is the best option - I mean it works out to less than 50 cents a day for 24x7 coverage on 7 cams PLUS so much more.

Janelle from Big Brother 6 and 7 will be involved with Superpass as well as Chelsia - more "Live" web shows hopefully for Superpass subscribers.  There may be MORE to tell about this but for now mum's the word.

The feeds will be viewable in BOTH the original real player but also directly in your web browser - you will not need Real Player to view the feeds.  However - you will of course need Superpass to log into the site (there seemed to be some confusion in the rumor mills).

A new feature this season in chat will be what is being called "interactables" - it looks like you will be able to throw virtual object at the live feeds as you watch them and others in the same chat room will get to join you in the pelting.  I personally have never really used the chat feature much but it does look like those that enjoy it will like the new abilities (you can also turn them off of course).

Flashback will be available again.  One of the best features ever - the ability to go back to points earlier in the season will work both in Real Player and the web page.  BB 10 and 11 will still be available as well - but only with the 'Real Player.'

Of course an added bonus that has been there in the past and will still be there is the $10 a month of FREE music downloads.  I've been told it will also be easier to get that music and I'll post a tutorial soon!

Finally (for now) Real is bringing us new interactive content to give us all a bigger bang for the buck. 

Chad Ochocinco - of NFL fame wil have a show on VH1 this summer called "The Ultimate Catch" and Real will offer exclusive online content through Superpass.  There are also other shows slated for exclusive content but this is the first.

WHEW - is that enough info for now?
