After I watched Wednesday, the first thought that came to mind...has BB "jumped the shark" a la Happy Days? I'll watch, of course. But the special effects, super imposing 3rd eyes, having houseguests disappear..and the robot is a bit much. What I've always found entertaining about BB is the interaction, the scheming, and game play.

I am hoping those things were all due to trying to be creative since it was not a live episode...please let them return to normal.

My kids tell me I am showing my age when I say something has "jumped the shark"! I hope it's not true of BB....

I think the cheesy visual and sound effects have been a part of BB for quite some time but this year it's just distracting.

I'm getting tired of all the gimmicks. Having a contestant be a robot. Like Gibby said it's suppose to be about interaction, the scheming, and game play.

I’m glad I’m not alone in what I thought of the first show. I think they went soo far overboard with all the gimmicks and also thought it down right stupid. Come on....a robot??

I'm convinced that someone on the BB staff is a Westworld fan (As am I!).

Interestingly, NASA just launched a very similar robot into space today.

AI is the future, people! These robots will rule us someday!

My issue with the show is all the twists actually ruin it (but it has never been a secret that I hate the way Alyson produces this show and the way Robyn casts this show).

I feel the same about the game killing manipulation.

Fake "reality", totally UN special effects.

Viewed voting made more difficult, but as usual, often the questions are ridiculous.

This trending thing seems to actually favor the obnoxious ones.

And how stupid to include ham in a house with a Muslim. Shows such disrespect, then he is punished with vegan glop.

So I thought I just heard Bayleigh say Kaitlyn volunteered to be a have not so its back to volunteering for that again and that stuff is never even talked about on TV anymore so why do it.

Sea- I sort of agree with you; I think some of the effects have been really cheesy so far, but they should be more practical now since they won't have as much time to do them with the turnaround between episodes.


I understand where you're coming from on the ham thing- if they wanted to keep the pun, it should have been Yamazon, which is at least OK for everyone religion-wise (the other pun would have been Clamazon, but it would have been the same problem with Fayzal; if one of the HG's were Jewish, we would be having the same discussion).

And if they don't make it perfectly clear it is vegan when they do the reveal on Sunday's show, there could be an issue with some people saying it's disrespectful.

Well it seems they Bayleigh is vegan. Sam and Steve were discussing potential meals and mentioned that.

I just hope they could be more mature than certain HG were when they purposely left Kaysar's halal meat out to spoil.. Talking about Boogie and Will.
