Default Soaps?

Does anyone watch any soap religiously?

This week has made me go a bit coronation street crazy (yes, I'm 17, I'm sad...).

Give us details of what you watch!

For me it's:

Emmerdale, Coronation Street and occasionally Eastenders.

Yes, this thread is very sad...

I think they're all shit. The plots are pathetic, the acting mediocre and they get rammed down your neck along with bullshit "judging" shows like X-Factor and Dancing with the Stars. (or whatever they're called).

I don't particularly like any of them. For all the reasons Jez stated. I do watch Eastenders on BBC3 though, but that is only because Family Guy is on afterwards and I get poor signal on my freeview where I live

The only thing I watch on TV is misfits I think...Otherwise I don't watch a lot of it.

My wife watches some of them, and occasionally i'll join her.

I usually get kicked out the room after 5 minutes for laughing at the plot or asking her questions about what the fuck is going on.

My ex girlfriend used to do the same, though to be fair i knew what was going on because they tell you whats going to happen in the news papers, so i used to "predict" the plot and spoil it for her, i also used to ask questions about eastenders while she was watching emmerdale and mess with her mind like "so the queen vic is run by the dingle family is it?

if you need a sedative to fall alseep then the weak plot, bad acting and awful characters are perfect to turn your brain to a soft pile of cat shit ready to shut down and allo your body to sleep.......or die depending on how exposed you are.

whereas if you watch eastenders you are likely to get suicidal and develop an allergy to wood

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
