The Glass House: Douchebag Alex Is Safe And We Can't Really See Inside The Glass House
Commentary by RTVC Senior Staff Writer Cindy Rutolo Dietrich
June 19, 2012
Not a villain,
just a village idiot.
ABC’s, “The Glass House,” is not your Mother’s, “Big Brother,” House.
I know there are cameras. But this is hardly “Big Brother.”
Yes, the house is made of glass, but they don’t offer 24/7 live stream viewing into Glass House guests’ lives.
That “Big Brother” window may get exhausting, and boring. But it also often offers an exhilarating look at the drama inside.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
“Big Brother’s” giant slice of live-feed-life makes The Glass House,” with its measly, over managed offerings, look like a child’s game show.
For example, there already seem to be a few cracks in “The Glass House” camaraderie.
But why did Holly vote to put Erica in Limbo? She was the only one who did.
There’s also some tension between Robin and Erica. Mike seems less than thrilled with her too.
Problem is, we don’t get to see what’s happened, or what’s going on.
These people are constantly handled. During the few hours the GH is available to the public, after the weekly show, there are constant questions, and online intervention.
There’s constant interruption by the newly named GH Voice, Oracle.
Then, they’re only streaming three days a week after that. They’re on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for only one hour.
That time is also managed; filled with questions and interaction.
I do admit I thought the viewer participation was a bit fun that first night.
I liked the speed of the questions; the rapid fire speed between ask, and action.
But, I quickly tire of the constant interruption to any kind of natural flow of conversation and interaction.
During the first night of live feed streaming, they were given beer. Lots and lots of beer.
You’ll rarely, if ever see that happen on “Big Brother.” They’ll give a “Big Brother” group of 14, eight cans of beer to split. “Big Brother” always keeps the amount of alcohol given, misery and ridiculously low.
