I really enjoy enjoy the foreign series on SBS. Wisting is well worth watching.

And why not if you enjoy them. No one else pays your bills so no one else gets a say

I should have elaborated. Misery that involves low life creatures creating dramas out of thin air. That type of influence will not go on in my house. They get enough of it when they visit the in laws in the UK.

I watch Casualty . I was so glad when they started showing it every week on Brit Box. Before that it was hit or miss on YouTube.

( This weeks episode had me in absolute pieces I cried)

I have to admit that I was the same, and I could so relate to Charlie walking round in a daze, not knowing what to do or say.

No, don't worry about that, it's just that things like that do still have a effect on me, I knew it wasn't going to be a good episode, but I had to watch it.

Why are they hiding? Pretty sure I see them listed on Foxtel when I'm scrolling through looking for something that's not shit. And failing most of the time.

Because they are shy and don't want to be seen in public as they may be taken away and not be seen again.

Corrie is not ****, it is an important part of British culture, https://scholar.google.com/scholar?s...=en&as_sdt=0,5. I found this one, https://bjgp.org/content/68/667/81, particularly relevant to our era. I do sometimes get confused between what's serious and what isn't - I wish they'd make their mind-up as to whether they are drama or dramedy. Let's hear it from Corrie's fans. Corrie, Corrie, Corrie, Oy, Oy Oy.
