Personal Quote:

I object to the exploitation of the underclass in shows like Big Brother (2000). It is the modern version of Bedlam, where you pay to see the poor benighted people making asses of themselves. Why do people find The Apprentice UK (2005) appealing? When Sir Alan (Alan Sugar) says 'You're fired,' that is not a nice thing to happen. The basic premise is not worthwhile, or enthralling.
