    Yea, what's up with that. HD is not a new concept. It's now the standard. Come on Big Brother I have an HD TV for a reason.

    On to the show. I can say I Hate the surfer dude and his hair. And the girl who thinks she is so pretty that all the other females will come after her.

    I do like Spencer, he's nice to look at and seems to have some game play and smarts about him.

    I'm very surprised at the pizza boy. He seems very likable and smart. I'd keep an eye on him as a major player.

    I went to vote at the website and people can vote 10 times a day? Why not just once? Make someone that wants to vote 10 times, work for it.

    Oh, and Rachel's sister is doomed unless she is nothing like Rachel....I.E. Likeable!

    I liked it other than not being in HD. That was disappointing. The twist is a pretty good one and should be interesting to watch as the season goes on, and really should mess with the balance of teams.

    And I agree about Rachel's sister. I didn't think she looked much like Rachel in the pre-show pictures but watching she really does. She'll likely be targeted quickly. But who knows, things change so easily in the house.

    Also thought it was funny that so many people didn't believe the pizza delivery guy was telling his real profession.

    I can't get past this not being in HD. I'm trying to think, is there any other prime time show other than BB on the major networks that isn't in HD? Heck, we all have HD cameras in our pocket, I can't see how it's not in HD.

    Anyway, I will reserve judgement on the houseguests yet. I generally change my mind on people at least once during the season. I like the 3 houseguest twist, and iffy on the MVP thing. I hate that it might come down to a viewer vote. The houseguests end up playing to the camera.

    Surfer dude. So, yeah.

    A whole lot of eye candy this year. I can't complain about that.

    I like McCray. So far anyway. Even though he won HOH I voted for him in the MVP thing. Since I know nothing about any of the rest, and I feel sorry for the guy since people have already walked out of the room on him I tossed him my pity vote. He might be the Ian/Eric this season.

    Lots eye candy. I like that.

    The twist is something I can tolerate. I like the dynamic 3 nominees can bring and I hope it leads to less predictable house votes.

    Whole new cast (kind of). Big plus.

    All in all I am excited about this season without having to find a reason to be excited. Looking forward to Sunday.

    Still not it HD. That made me debate turning it off right away but it fell back into familiar old Big Brother and I got over it. I don't get it though. I've thought they kept from going to HD because the show was on the verge of being cancelled. But I've thought that for the last few years now. Who knows.

    The interview pieces where they introduced the houseguest seen to give me more ****** chills that normal.

    I posted on their Facebook page my disdain about not being in HD. It almost makes me want to not watch.

    I hope Rachel's sis last a lot longer, but when they showed her without makeup, how can you NOT recognize her.

    I like the 3rd nom. Makes people even more nervous.

    Anyone else notice it's not in HD? Seriously get over it. It's been mentioned a thousand times, we get the point. Talk about beating a dead horse. Geez...


    As for the show itself, Ginamarie and Regan Jr. need to go ASAP.

    I kind of liked surfer dude. In his diary bit he showed a little more personality, beyond just "duh" surfer dude - and I thought he seemed very like-able. I also like McRae and Spencer - and one of the brunette women. I'm not sure which one, though.

    Not the one who thinks she's so much prettier than everyone else. AND - she said it out loud in the room with those guys. What?! Who does that?

    I was glad to meet a whole new group. So glad they quickly could tell Rachel's sister. Even though each person thought they were the only one to notice. That's always funny. She looks and sounds EXACTLY like her sister. Hopefully she'll be less annoying.

    If the brunette you mean is the bartender chick from Minnesota, then that is Kaitlyn. I think she is very likable.

    I'm not so upset the show isn't HD (well, yes I am) but I'll never understand why it's broadcast in 4:3 format rather than 16:9! In this day and age it's unforgivable.

    Funny thing is when I pressed the info button on my Tivo is shows it being in HD at 1080i.
    This has to be the only broadcast show not in HD.
    It takes me a while to figure who to like. Is anyone 30 or over ? I think this is the 1st season without someone in their 40's.

    Helen is in late 30's. I think she is the oldest one in the house.

    I don't think surfer dude would bother me so much if he would get rid of that ridiculous hair-do he's sportin'. That hair almost makes Donald Trump's do look good! :eek:

    One of the women (mother) is 37.


    As far as the HD thing you mention, its probably broadcast on the HD channel, but the content isn't HD. That's why you see it listed as 1080i. The local channel isn't going to drop back to SD for SD content (that might not even be possible, and of course unnecessary)

    Seriously, if Surfer Dude plays with his hair anymore, I may have to sneak into the house and shave him! He clearly is in love with his hair.

    They handled the twist well. I am fine with America voting for the MVP, and not the 3rd nom. It should really change up how the game is played this year.

    Pageant blonde lady must go. She is SO annoying.

    The "no have-no" pass was an interesting idea. I liked how they did it with the 50/50 chance in the lunch buckets.

    All the mustaches on the wall in the one bedroom was a bit creepy.

    Overall, good episode !!
