Big Brother After Dark is fun

Showtime’s Showtoo Channel is Watching Big Brother 8 After Dark

If you’re a CBS TV’s Big Brother 8 fan and already get Showtime and it’s sister premium channels such as Showtime Too (two?) you can be enjoying a behind the scenes look at the BB8 house guests and their scheming.

UNCENSORED and un-edited Big Brother Footage!

As I reported in TV Robot’s CBS TV Big Brother 8 section, the all new Big Brother After Dark runs three hours per night LIVE on Showtime Two. You’ll see the Big Brother 8 house as you’ve never seen it before as Showtime gives us 3 hours live per night 7 days a week to spy on what is really happening in the Big Brother 8 house.

3 hours per night – 21 hours of Big Brother 8 footage per week!

The live as it happens footage is broadcast unedited. The only thing close to editing is that they will jump through different cameras positioned in various parts of the house, so you do not see all the action – just what they choose to show live. What I have seen is very good and revealing. The quality is also unexpectedly high since their is no editing or sweetening of footage.

Since I have Tivo I have loaded up and have all the previous nights recorded and waiting for me. So far I have watched 4 nights of footage (12 hours) and still have 9 episodes taped (27 hours).

Tivo can only hold so much! Seven 3 hour episodes per week takes up a lot of hard disk space!

Now that may seem like a lot of LIVE Big Brother to watch, but in actuality you can fast forward through a huge amount of the stuff. In fact, if you have favorite houseguests you may only want to search for footage that includes them. Or if you really hate someone you may want to skip footage they’re in.

Me, personally I have found that I can watch a 3 hour episode in around 1 hour if I fast forward liberally. Last night for example I watched over 6 hours of Live Big Brother After Dark footage in less than 2 hours.

Now there is a downside to having all this raw unedited footage… the activities you see “off the main show” can impact the experience you have watching the real Big Brother 8 as broadcast on CBS. Read the rest of this entry

Big Brother 8 is here!

Hey! It must be Summer again! Big Brother 8 is here and it rocks!

So far – so good! I was abit worried at the new twists and turns but it seems to be working!

One noticeable change this year is Big Brother After Dark, on Showtime 2.

It airs from 9 to 12 PM PST and shows the housegouests in raw unedited (supposedly live) footage.

I turned it on after Tivo recoirded a few of those and turned it off real quick. It seemed like it was AHEAD of the episode I saw and I did not want to ruin it! I guess I can peek again after I have a few episodes under my belt!

I’m looking forward to a fun Summer with Biog Brother 8!
