Soap Drama

Soaps are like your sterotypical gay man an over the top drama, where everything revolves around sex wanting it, having it, then watching everything self destruct usually in a murder and a lot of tears. I have noticed the difference between British and American soaps, ours tend to be bleak depressing affairs with a slight grip of realiy whereas the Americans are lavish and colourful with no ugly people in sight and constant sex there are more people in bed then out of it.

I don't watch soaps I like to consider myself above such lame melodrama my sister on the other hand religiously watches her 3 favorite regurgitated rubbish of Emmerdale, Eastenders and Coronation street, possessively hoarding the remote control until they finish trying to subdue her riotous young brood to silence during that period unsuccessfully I might add, so she just hangs at the edge of her seat drowning out the chaos around her .

But I find myself amazed and preturbed at how easily ingrossed in this rubbish I have gotten, catching glimpses slyly from the corner of my eye as though it was porn and I was too afraid to enjoy it.
