Are Secretly A Soap Fan?

Definite no these days.

Over time I have watched / listened to in descending order of frequency:

The Archers


Neighbours (early days)

Eastenders (early days)

If I have watched any in the last 5 years it's through politeness because I'm with somebody who watches soaps.

The good wife watches Coronation Street and has recently started to watch Eastenders again. She uses Sky+ and watches them when I am not about. They depress me.

I also do not like my kids watching soaps.

I watched Eastenders and Brookside in the early days,when they had some interesting storylines(Brookside had the body under the patio,Barry Grant's gangster connections,the scally Jimmy Corkhill blagging his way into a teaching job,and a young Jennifer Ellison in her schoolgirl outfit) Eastenders had Nick Cotton,the Mitchell brothers gangland fights,and a good sub-plot when Mike Butcher's(?)daughter lived on the streets.Nowadays just watch Coronation Street,and have done since 1976! Lots of the scenes remind me of Alan Bennett's writing.I miss Blanche's one-liners,and some of the conversations are positively surreal(Graeme's in particular.)
