Oh isnt it just great? Its been running for about a month or so now and even my husband watches it religiously. He evens know all the characters now. His faves are Mercedes "Mercy" McQueen and her sister Carmel. I wonder why???! I love curling up on the sofa at 10.30 with a Cadburys Caramel (a real one from World Market!) for a half hour of bliss. BBC America is getting some more good stuff too I believe so hopefully soon it will be all I watch. I just can't understand why they can't show Eastenders.

I just can't understand why they can't show Eastenders.

Annoying isn't it? They used to show Eastenders on BBCA, but they stopped because it was "too expensive" and "nobody was watching it" (mainly because they showed it in Omnibus form on Saturday mornings).

There was a demonstration outside of the BBCA headquarters when they cancelled it.

Maybe with BBCA's new improved format (i.e. not just 24hrs/day Cash in the Attic) they could bring it back. Sadly I think they won't because they have it on Pay-per-view now I believe on Dish Network.

I have to admit to watching Cash in the Attic and Bargain Hunt. It reminds me of London when I would call work on a Monday morning with a hangover and make up some story about having to work from home. I would curl up on the sofa in my PJ's with a bacon sarnie, and watch all the way through from Trisha to Car Booty !!! I am going to try the website mentioned on here to get Eastenders though. That would make life perfect !

I didnt realise they were moving Hollyoaks to a 3am slot tonight !!!!! I am so furious with BBC America. Do you think we should oppose their decision as a group? there is no way I can stay awake until 3am. Im sure you cant either.

On my cable box, it's on twice, once in a east coast and then a west coast equivalent of the time slot. I can't for the life of me figure out why they'd start a soap opera for a month and tout the hell out of it, then just move it like that! I was originally happy that they'd be showing Coupling daily, but then I realized I was going to miss out on the fix I'd just grown attached to! Barsts!

I see they haven't changed their ways in the last few years then! This is why I've boycotted BBCA since they dumped Eastenders.

oh the life sized doll one was hilarious. Ok so you send off for one of these dolls, and pay your 6,000 pound. Why the hell would you then agree to a film crew filming your life with it!!!! Can you imagine if you watched that and realised you worked with one of those guys?? Every time you were alone together in the kitchen you would run away screaming!! So funny though - especially at the end when it was announced that the girlfriend of one of the doll owners had decided to leave him as he spent more time in bed with his doll than her. BUT IT TOOK HER ABOUT A YEAR TO LEAVE !!!!!!
