My personal excuse for watching Coronation Street and EastEnders?

Carla and Maria.
Roxie and Janine.

Also, I teach Drama for six hours a week. I can kick off a good lesson by referring to the action, drama, fights, crap in last night's EastEnders.

That works where Troilus and Cressida won't.

At last a thread I can really get my teeth into:

I never watch any soaps, they're very depressing and for me have no entertainment value at all.
I watch mainly football and the History and Nature channels.
I also like comedies, particularly the old ones, Dads Army/Carry On films/On the Buses/Steptoe/Hancock.

I'm hooked on Eastenders because it is a cartoon of parodied emotions, and that amuses me. I sit with my imaginary Cohiba and grin. I don't shout out, though.

Trouble is teens of a certain type think that EastEnders is what life is actually like. If there's not a climax every two minutes, they're bored.

Young people, eh!? What's to be done?...

I did think that Scarface was like Dynasty when Pacino is in Bolivia. The big tacky home and gardens scenes. I looked at the helicopter with a guy dangling from a rope overhead and craved padded shoulders and Krystal in a cut-away shot looking to the sky and holding Blake's sleeve.

Now Dynasty was the best of laughs! One of the best, in fact!
