Paulo - not sure if you are poking fun or not, but if I accept you at face value, then you do make a good point.

The "Big Brother" tv game show really has almost nothing to do with the well-known and understood literary concept of "Big Brother". I think the only real basis for calling it Big Brother is the surveillance cameras being everywhere. A game show that truly embraced the full psychological aspects of Big Brother as a nemesis would be some great viewing. But you're right, they could just as accurately have called this show "Camera house".
