The Lighter Side of Mel Gibson 


From the Live From New York book:


Host Mel Gibson pitched nervous "SNL" writers on a "Brideshead Revisited" spoof called "Bird's Head Regurgitated." They passed.


From the Ontario Empoblog (Latest OVVA news here)

Comments:
Thank God.
 
This was several years before he did "Passion." So it probably would have been less messy.
 
dude. i want to SMASH big brother people (the show that is) right smack dab in the face! i hate that reality tv bullshit!

i know you know i'm nuts.
 
Mitzee, you're nuts, but that's beside the point.

When Big Brother first came on in the U.S., I was interested in the entire concept - the whole idea of lack of privacy and lack of information, and how willing participants would respond to such a situation.

In the U.S. Big Brother 1, the lab rats did not perform as expected. The houseguests had the power to vote their own out, and they consistently chose to vote out the more confrontational people (starting with Will Mega). This made for a happy house, but very unriveting television. Things got somewhat bizarre when George almost incited the entire house to leave, in some type of "nobody wins...everybody wins" convoluted thinking.

Enter Arnold Shapiro of "Scared Straight" fame, and Big Brother 2 became a lot more competitive. And a lot more TV-friendly (read: cast aspiring actors and actresses). Unfortunately, it became something that my (then) young daughter couldn't watch, and actually didn't want to watch.

I continued to watch it over the years, but looked at it less and less. By Big Brother 5, I think I only watched one show (wow! the twins are changing clothes!), and I didn't watch any part of Big Brother 6.

I may check out Big Brother 7, depending upon whom they cast.
