6 is best so far for me, then probably 7 or 8 or 2.

2 would be the best if it wasn't for the slow pace due to lack of POV.

That's my major problem with BB2. That third episode was just plain awful every time. I'd probably rank it higher up if it wasnt for that. The final two was absolutely fantastic.

My favorite episodes of this season were at the final-4. I'll never forget the amazing HOH and the drama afterwards! Best moments of BB history ever!

The lack of PoV in BB2 doesn't bother me that much, obviously, I ranked it as my number one season. I think those House Meetings were good and often caused lots of drama, the Shannon/Hardy argument and the Kent/Hardy argument spring to mind.

I also like it because the lack of PoV means you have to work the strategic game that much harder to stay in the game, which

I don't really get the love for BB10.

It lacked the traditional good/evil split that any good story needs, and while the middle of the series was good because power kept shifting between several alliances so it avoided the problem BB9 had where the "bad" alliance just picked off everyone else but the final outcome was the same - a choice of two pretty devious characters who I'd rather hadn't even got the 50,000 let alone the half a million.

The good/evil split can get very boring, much better when things keep shifting, like in BB2 and BB3.

Plus I consider Dan one of, if not the best player to ever play the game, so its fun watching him in action.

It was good right up until Kessha was evicted, then Dan had it in the bag, and frankly I really couldn't stick Memphis and it really grated on me that he got $50,000.

It was like the end of BB9 in many ways - the only really nice person (Sharon) being denied $50,000 at the last minute by a backstabbing from an idiot and a knob.

How was Dan not nice? He was probably one of the nicest people who has ever been on that show, one of the reasons he got every single jury vote, remember Jerry (who hated Dan) voted for him because even after everything they went through, Dan was the only one that wished him goodnight before bed every night.

Dan was a great player that kept everything strategic, he never took the game to a personal level or attacked people.

Keesha was likable yeah, but in terms of niceness, she was much bitchier and catty than Dan or Memphis.

yeah Keesha was pretty catty and bitchy at times, especially within the first few weeks. I think she was lucky though that April was so toxic towards her thus helping the public warm to her easier.

Why does no one like BB9 out of interest? This is the only one i ever saw as it was aired on E4 and i quite liked it.

Horrible personalities. Complete lack of strategic gameplay. Stupid couples twist. Nobody to root for. Half the cast are now in jail.

Started watching BB6 last week and I haven't been able to stop!

I think its the best one I've seen yet (only seen 4, 5 and last summers one)

The bitching and backstabbing is brilliant! I haven't seen a boring episode yet!

Love Janelle & Kaysar's click and I love how they can't be arsed to be fake to the Friendship!

Can't stand Ivette, Beau and James!

Oh I don't know, half way through, there was a very obvious good/evil divide. I think the fan favourites pretty much all ended up in one alliance, and the rest on the other side.

I think it also helped that the 'villains' of the series were more akin to cartoon characters than actual villains with malicious intent (See BB8's Dick, BB9's Joshuah and BB11's Natalie)
