    Big Brother is coming soon, Wed June 28! Here's the new thread for pregame talk and live feed discussion. We usually have enough interested to do individual show threads after each episode but this is the season-long anything-goes spoiler thread.

    Houseguests have been announced and it looks like all newbies unless they announce more later, or a twist adds more. And so has the theme: Summer of Temptation. They'll be offering up temptations for money, power, and safety however taking the temptations will have consequences. And pics of the updated house decor.

    I'm looking forward to another fun summer of shows! :)

    As always looking forward to this. In some ways it's harder to play than Survivor, as it's much longer in duration and I would imagine that boredom must set in pretty quickly. The drama alone is worth the watch. I've watched every season but the first and the second Rachel season (I just could NOT stand another whole season of her).

    without the benefit of watching any feeds, game play, or house interactions, my initial thoughts of this house full of newbies is a little disappointment with the ladies - while christmas shows great signs of promise, that's just about it (so far). while i expect both dominique & raven to be fun on the feeds, i'm not convinced of their abilities to navigate the game...we'll see. i'll be keeping an eye on elena during any small group late-night conversations, she may end up being this season's arryn.

    on the other hand, the pool of guys appear at first to be a bit deeper - matthew, cameron, cody, possibly kevin, all looking to play with their heads in the game. josh could be trouble, i'm thinking he may very well be the willie hantz of bb19. ramses is the token nerd, token racial minority guy, and token gay, all rolled into one, which could end up being lots of fun. jason the rodeo clown? no...just no. and mark? both conjure images of jessie.

    overall it appears to be a good mix of personalities and ages, even while a bit lacking in diversity (which isn't that surprising given bb's history with robin cass).

    i've already made my player cheat sheet for the first eps, and can't wait for this season to begin!

    Player cheat sheet? You take this way too seriously!! :D

    It's a fun show, but three hours a week is plenty. I don't watch any live feeds, and only occasionally watch the After Dark stuff.

    it's easier than trying to remember 12-16 names in the early weeks. ;)

    eta: my list even has color pics of the new houseguests, along with short bios. when there's conversation about other hg's on after dark, it's the only way i can keep up with who they're gossiping about! at least until the herd is thinned a little... :p

    pop

    p.s. you'll need to create a new 1p for both the cbs airings and after dark on pop, neither are working (yet?), and i have little faith in their reliability going forward, based on the on again, off again, back on again history with existing 1p.

    Are we doing an "all-in" season thread this year? The title seems to suggest this...

    In previous seasons, we've had a network season thread to discuss only things that happened on CBS (free of any spoilers from live feeds or BBAD), and a separate thread for the more up-to-date happenings in the live feeds and BBAD...

    Edit: Oops... See my next post below...

    Oops... My bad... I just did a search, and we were doing episode specific threads (not a season thread), and a live/BBAD thread... This must be the live/BBAD thread, and we'll create the episode threads on-demand...

    Yep, like I said in the OP this will be the full season thread that can have untagged spoilers from the live feeds and individual threads can still be created and should have tagged spoilers (in spoiler tags) for things that didn't air in the show.

    It will be interesting to see if any of the Big Brother Over the Top stuff comes through to season 19. Like the live competitions, nominations, and diary room sessions. I liked that stuff a lot. But I'm betting they'll be back to blocking those out due to the TV schedule. I'll likely just stick to the TV stuff instead of subscribing to the live feeds.

    I cut the cord a few weeks ago... So I no longer get access to BBAD... :(

    I'll likely just stay with whatever the CBS editors feed us... :)

    I agree about the women. With the exception of Christmas and maybe Jessica, they don't seem to be a strong group. The past few seasons, the women mostly mentioned wanting to form an all-girl alliance. Of course, it generally fails, but this year's women all seem to want to work with guys straight off the bat. Perhaps casting didn't put as much effort into finding competitive women after having 2 female winners in a row.

    And now there are rumors about a 17th houseguest. Spoilers just this one time.

    Paul from BB18 may be back.

    I like the guy just fine, but since we're voting on who goes to the Den of Temptation each week, it doesn't seem fair to throw in one known entity with 16 new house guests. Of course, it's never particularly fair so it's not going to make me stop watching.

    Nope, not me

    I'd rather keep it just newbies, but I am sure CBS does this so that there is the familiarity factor that will get people to watch.
