    Well Coronation Street is better than Brookside was.

    I would have said Eastenders but the title rules it out

    He didn't ask for your favourite film.  In fact, he specifically hinted that you refrain from doing so!  
    Still, you do like to be awkward, don't you?  :roll: 



    In my opinion, Alas Smith and Jones is, was, and never will be, remotely close to being a good western tv show, or even a 5hit one, for that matter..... "unless you can back that up with some facts"!!!


    The worlds worst ever example of a western TV show.... good or bad....






    An excellent example of a great western TV show.....



    I do so hope I haven't offended you in any way, Boris, it's just that I just say things how I see them. If someone posts something I disagree with I will challenge them, think that is a positive thing..just my opinion of course.
