I don't mind it so far. I find people who have been on the show for two days making alliances that are supposed to reach into the final two to be completely ridiculous, and things like Rachel's paranoia to be the result of someone who has watched too much Survivor in her lifetime. But the "Executive Produced by the Riddler" type plot twists (anyone else feel like Adam West should have been deciphering those clues?) are at least making it more interesting than your generic Survivor-clone reality show, which is what the last couple of Big Brothers have seemed like. I mean, I admit, I'm curious as to what's in the safes.
I was always under the impression that the reason the British version was so successful was because of all the nudity (and given what I've heard about this season of the show over there, I was right). Obviously they can't do that here (though it is an "incentive" offered by CBS for those willing to pay for the streaming internet version), so what you're left with is Survivor: Some House. I kind of got hooked last year when they'd paired the show off with Amazing Race, which I was watching anyway, but I haven't really had the urge to check out this years.
That said, maybe I'll check it out once or twice to see if anybody interesting is on.

I was surprised at the turnout at the FEC. I had trouble finding parking at the metro so I didn't get down there until 10:30ish and there were about 100-150 people down there. The crowd was so big around the podium that we shut down the sidewalk.
