You find yourself watching Eastenders...AND you're enjoying it. :p

*click*

Anyone else suddenly realize that they only have the tv on for the sake of having the tv on, just watching crap and wasting time because it's the easiest thing to do?

I have been subjected to this experience. Usually when I'm too sick to move, and can't find the remote.

Eastenders though? Good god... you have my sympathies!

I thought it was another Wile E. Coyote incident :scared: What have you done to me?

between you and me, I used to watch it years ago...it was oddly addictive in a self-torturing sort of way. Maybe I was mesmerized by how incredibly whiny and aggitated Brits 'really' are. ;)

I'm halfway tempted to take a picture of my husband's chest and stomach...he got a sunburn yesterday while sitting outside, but because he was sitting and his skin creased, he has these white 'tiger' stripes across his red gut, and this big white circle around his bellybutton. It's hilarious! (Well, hilarious to me. :p )

My mother and my ex used to watch it a ton too, so I got subjected to it quite often.

I actually preferred getting punched in the face to watching those bloody soaps :lol:

I can't stand soaps, or nighttime dramas, but for some reason I never saw Eastenders as either...to me it was more like bad dark comedy. :)

That's why I buy things on DVD or watch 'em on hulu/Netflix. I figure life it too short to sit around surfing to watch crap. Might as well make sure I'm watching something decent.

True. Some of the shit they came out with in that show was utterly fucking hilarious.

Personally, the only thing I liked about it were the funny moments Doctor Who got because of it :)

For a while there, the show had me convinced that everyone in Britain was a picklepuss.

It had me convinced that everyone was secretly adopted, pregnant by and related to everyone they ever met.

Yeah, when I find myself enjoying a television show, I too think to myself "this enjoyment is a sign that I should turn off the t.v."

No, according to tv we're all drunks, and members of the I.R.A. :p

I've been watching Coronation Street for months.

And who would Two Tone fight...and what would his powers be?

I've never seen it - I don't think it has ever aired here in the States.

Two Tone would fight SPFMan with his weapon of choice, the Baby Oil Super Soaker.

Too bad we couldn't get a sketch of that.

Damn, wish I could sketch for reasons like this.

Hubby...I mean, Two Tone, looks a lot like Shawn from Psych. So, just picture 'Shawn' with a white-striped red belly and white belly button, in underpants, wielding a super soaker and chasing down someone that looks like...oh, I dunno...some ginger guy (because SPFMan has to be a ginger).

Not familiar with Shawn or Psych.

But we need some artist who can sketch such strange ideas in ten minutes.
