There's been very little grumbling and tinfoil hatting in these threads this season. Very refreshing
The only tinfoil hatting I did was it seemed contrived to bring the coaches back in the game. But now that it's done, it's luckily become very entertaining.
I think everybody knows by now how the producers practically dictate and influence everything on this show so there isnt any debate anymore
Wow, this might have been the greatest episode in the series history. The machinations the season are epic!
Dan deserves to win for this move alone. I know most people think Frank will win if he makes it to final 2, but I don't think Frank deserves to win...in my mind, Frank's game was only good enough to get him evicted during what turned out to be the reset week.
The votes were set to evict Frank that week until BB decided to disregard the whole week and not have the eviction at the last minute. Frank failed to veto himself that week, and he (and Boogie) failed to talk him out of getting evicted that week. So, given the fact that he was only saved by the producers...all the comps he wins and all the good moves he makes after that week are irrellevant because he should not still be in the game.
No new thread for the 8/30 eviction, so I will add this here as a spoiler text.
Jeff interviewing the latest evicted houseguest:
Why didn't you just make a thread?
Because I don't like threads with just one or two posts in them. I always think certain shows should really be a whole-season thread and not individual episode threads. BB is one of them.
But everyone thinks differently, that is just my O.P.
I agree. Is their a rule that a whole season thread can't be made?
The flip side is you have to spoilerize things more.
Since it's on 3 times per week, I might be behind in watching. Therefore, I like threads for each episode so I can safely read it without worrying about getting spoiled. For shows only on once a week, it's not so much an issue as it'd be rare I'd be more than a week behind in watching.
I think this was probably the first episode without it's own thread, I wonder if because it was delayed by the Republican convention is the reason. I think BB gets enough interest in each thread to warrant every episode to have it's own thread.
I understand you have your opinion, but do you think your preference should inconvience others? While a whole season thread disenfranchises some users, the opposite is not true. Single episode threads have no down side.
None of the BB threads have had had just one or two posts. BB gets a lot of discussion and since it is on 3 times a week people can't always keep current, therefore they are barred from participating in a full season thread. What does a a thread for an episode hurt really? It's not hard for you to create a new when instead of posting a spoiler in the previous one.
I believe that the rule against posting a thread more than 2 hours before a show airs makes whole season threads a rule violation.
Several episodes this season have not had their own threads.
There's numerous other "whole season" threads so you're saying all are rule violations? How could I add to a whole season thread with info 2 hours before the show airs????? Unless I am watching Live feeds but that's a different story.
I'm obviously in the minority on this, I just think it makes more sense. And if you aren't "current" on the show then just don't go into the thread. or go into it but pay attention to the dates/times and just don't go past whatever episode you are on. I guess that's too much to ask.
Dan did not need to do all the above. I wouldn't doubt the producers gave him the funeral shtick for some drama to fill the episode. What got him off the block was him outing Ian to Frank at just the right moment.
Yes, technically Whole Season threads, even though there are plenty of them, do violate the rule.
I never will understand why whole season advocates just disregard the needs of people who aren't current on all episodes. They act as if they are the only ones who matter and don't care about excluding anyone else.
