Big Brother “should be required viewing for everyone” beacuse of its “reflections of life.”

Big Brother’s “reflections of life” “should be required viewing for everyone.”
Because it’s “an accurate representation of what goes on every day in every community,” writer Mike Hendricks says that Big Brother 3 “should be required viewing for everyone.” He adds, “The characteristics that manifested themselves on Big Brother 3 were not imitations of life. They were reflections of life. That’s how far too many of us behave and it’s not something we should be especially prideful of.”
