Download. Bearshare or LimeWire are pretty good. You can generally get the
US shows 2 days later. Not sure about UK laws, but don't worry about filesharing here. Unless it's rude.

The missus is looking forward to Prison Break Season 3. I prefer Heroes and Dexter.

Showtime does the corri and emm/dale and you have to call up and add on BBC Prime to get Enders. Extra wonga tho...Not sure how much some mad friends of ours did it. Sky T.V is depressing enough without Enders as well!

you'll be surprised how many people have showtime and orbit, you can get them both through TECOM. I only have showtime so miss Eastenders but we can always recreate it in the Chippy!

You have a sordid mind!

Its a early evening UK soap set in the East end of London ...Eastenders ...shortened to Enders (known as enders as Eastenders is too long to say for us Brits).

It is centered around a pub (as in all good British soaps) and a market square (Albert Square). It has loads of dysfunctional people living in the pub and around the square who fight, squabble, get married, have affairs, divorce and murder each other.
Either run down by a car in the square, bashed over the head with a door stop and buried in the cella, pushed down a steep hill and left to die or shoved down some stairs. Think some people have been shot and died of nasty diseases too.
Then everyone has a jolly good sing song and a knees up in the pub!

Hope that helps!!
