Game of the Week Winner
23rd July, 2010 at 19:35:05 -

Soaps in America though - from what I've seen, and I'll admit I haven't seen a lot - do tend to have lower standards; they are basically showcases for pretty faces, pop psychology and predictable love triangles. Although I do think soaps in the UK are on the whole bland, they do at least attempt to emulate multiple aspects of real life - there are ugly people, old people, fat people, disabled people, boring people etc etc. When a British person looks at a soap they imagine it to be a mirror to their own lifestyles, albeit exaggerated. American soaps, and American drama in general, tends to be more aspirational. Plus, there's the fact that a lot of the soaps have been running for so damn long that some of the characters in them have been on screen three times a week for over thirty years, meaning they are almost "real" people to the viewers.

Oh god, now I'm talking about soaps too. God help me.

On another note, has anyone seen the new Scrapheap challenge? Its bloody awful, its less about the engineering and calamaties of the build and more about the compeition. Then after the contestants have worn out their contraptions competing against each other, Dick competes against the winner.

The biggest moot point is that it has lost lost Lisa Rogers for that moustachiod fiend.

I haven't seen it since Kryton left - and now there's no Lisa Rogers there really is no point for it to ever be on t.v. again. Lisa is hot
