The Dullness of Big Brother

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Big Brother- giving a whole new dimension to the phrase ?watching paint dry? Ok, I?ll admit it, at first I loved Big Brother. It was an interesting concept to begin with, named after the character in George Orwells 1984, staying true to the ?Big Brother is watching you? Theme. The idea was intriguing.
