Big Brother 13 as a watchable four minute movie trailer

Big Brother 13 has been turned into a movie trailer starring its primary protagonist/antagonist, Brenchel, aka Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas.

Watching this does violate a significant rule of Big Brother, which is my required end-of-season purge of all memories, which is the only thing that permits me to waste three more months the next summer.

Anyway, the video comes via Hamsterwatch, and its creator, Jeremy Woods, says that “Big Brother 13 is my favorite season of Big Brother, because of Brenchel,” and he also calls it “the BEST season of Big Brother.” Big Brother 6 and I would disagree, but one person’s treasure is another person’s trash.

His celebration of the season becomes, for me, the only way I could possibly revisit it: in just over four minutes, with a loud soundtrack drowning out large parts of the stupidity.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
