Am I a good man?


Season 19 starts June 28th on CBS.

This is the Spoiler thread, so anything in the episodes or on the live feeds will be fair game!

It's the summer TV season again, which means it's time for Big Brother. So what is Big Brother?

Big Brother (BB) is the original and superior source of 24/7 voyeurism on American televisions. The weekly CBS show features footage taken from live feeds of the Big Brother House. What's the big deal about the house? It's a reality game show which forces 14+ people to live together in a house during the summer, all while competing for power to kick other people out of the house and thus out of the game. All with the goal of being the final House Guest selected as the best player and worthy of the $500,000.

The 80+ cameras in the BB house capture all manner of insanity and "reality" when it comes to the House Guests. Meaning what you see on TV is barely half the story. Massive amounts of plotting and scheming are never aired, allowing the TV editors to craft whatever story they want for the viewing audience. Only the feed watchers or readers get the best take on what's really happening in the house.

Interested in seeing the true story of Big Brother 19?

Various sites provide recaps and running updates submitted by viewers of what's going on:

Big Brother Network
HamsterWatch
Jokers Updates
Online Big Brother

CBS also will provide live streaming HD coverage through CBS All Access.

http://www.cbs.com/shows/big_brother/live_feed/

If your cable provider offers Pop (the station formerly known as TVGN) you'll be able to watch "Big Brother After Dark" for two hours every night from 12:00-2:00 AM ET/PT seven days a week. This is another source for live feed viewing, sometimes offering different angles or a better viewing experience for that time window.

http://poptv.com/big_brother_after_dark

The official website also provides live feed clips of content not seen on TV.

FAQ:

Q - I bought CBS All Access and all I see on the Live Feeds is fish/trivia?
A - Though it is billed as 24/7, the live feeds will not run during several specific instances: Any time a competition is ongoing, any time nominations are held, legal requirements and/or for control booth interaction. Legal requirements can include when the houseguests start to sing, the HGs talk about a family member by name who didn't sign a release or some other legally grey area. Generally the booth will cut in to warn the HGs or provide some guidance for some ongoing issue.

Q - Is it even worth it to spend $$$ on the feeds?
A - With Big Brother now added to CBS All Access, in addition to the feeds you'll now also have access to every episode of the U.S. edition of Big Brother, all for $5.99 per month. If you're wanting access to that library, it might help your decision. Otherwise also note that it appears the purchase is a recurring charge, so you'll need to cancel when the season is over.

Q - Can the feeds really make that big a difference in how you see an HG?
A - Ask anyone who watched previous seasons. Often times controversial statements regarding gender/race/sexuality never see the light of day on the broadcast show. Instead they are relegated to the live feeds only, and serve as the only way to really see what type of people the house guests are.

Obligatory:

Fedelm in season 17 thread posted:

I can't wait to watch people put a target on their back by throwing others under the bus and backdooring floaters on the chopping block when they should've voted with the house even though it's nothing personal, but they didn't come here to make friends so sometimes they have to get blood on their hands in order to do what's best for their game so no matter where your head is at, at the end of the day it is what it is.

check the feeds.


I'm sitting here thinking and legit the only thing I can remember from last season is that it annoyed me so much I kinda rage quit before it was done and then ignored the internet season that followed.

Oh wait, it's coming back to me. The cute romance between James and... Natalie? Cody's brother being horrible? Da'vonne driving Vanessa's sister into a mental break? Frank being unable to decide if he was a good guy or a bad guy?

Who won? Why was I so mad? Nicole? Why did I hate her when I used to like her? So much of last season seems like a blank to me.

Of course that was pre-Trump when all time started moving at a much different pace. So that could explain it.

I'm doing my usual hemming and hawing about whether I want to get sucked into this again like I do every summer, but on the pro side I basically just keep coming back to that gif.

edit: I have a problem because I've spent the last few hours just on and off re-reading last season's thread while watching baseball.

I just made this super weird discovery that in August 2016 a full two months before "Pussy Gate" Paulie excused his terribly sexist treatment of Natalie as "locker room talk."

So who can help me learn how to make gifs from the streams super easy for this season?

And what's the best free hosting site for images? I notice all mine from last year are gone, which makes me sad. Imgur?

edit: Oh, I use a Mac. That matters.

A while back I used a program called Gif Cam or something like that. It basically threw a transparent window up that let you capture and then edit anything inside it. Not sure if there are better options today. It was a bit clunky. As for hosting, imgur is probably the easiest off the top of my head, but there are others I have seen people use for high quality gifs and clips. I just don't know their names. Starts with a G?

Are you thinking of Gfycat?

Also, if you have any sort of way to just record a straight video clip from your screen, Imgur has a tool that will automatically convert it to gifv for you. The size kinda sucks by comparison, but would probably be fine for just posting stuff in the thread.

I'm clueless about this stuff. I've never recorded anything or gifed anything, at least not in this decade. I was making gifs 20 years ago with a cable wire plugged into my computer and Quicktime but I'm guessing that's not an option anymore.

I'll look and there's probably some kind of solution. At worst I'll go to one of the TVIV threads where there are gifs and ask someone. But I want to see if I can figure this out next week and make it easy just to have some more fun this season.

Truthiness!

I appreciate this. Big Brother gifs are much better than the episodes.

STAC, please don't give up. Your labors are better than forcing myself to watch this.

That said, I actually have CBS All Access for some reason. Probably Star Trek. Baseball is on, but, erm, timestamps could be fun and cool!

Christmas Abbott, ugh.

She's from my hometown and is somewhat of a fitness "icon" who calls herself a crossfitter and runs a CF gym here. Let's just say....I'm not excited to see her on television based on the way I've seen her act towards some people in the local CF community here.

She will be a villain.

Yeah, I suppose I can't argue there. I suppose it's just different separating the "character" on tv from the person when the person is in the same community as you. Hell, as a quasi-feedster, I hope she entertains.
