@vorb

 

Had a flick through the EPG myself earlier and it's all round same .... different year so am afraid it's not going to get any better, there's probably a Morecambe and Wise repeat later too, woo hoo!

 

Thank goodness for NowTV/Netflix, found myself watching Trading Places earlier (I've not seen it before) and watching Sleepless in Seattle last night (not seen that before either)

@vorb

 

While I've not seen EastEnders (or DeadEnders as I prefer to call it) for years I guess the episode will probably involve:

 

1. A punch up in the Vic

2.Someone sat bawling their eyes out with a bottle of Whisky and a bottle of Paracetamol.

 

New Years Eve repeat but exchange the faint sound of a good ol' Cockney Christmas sing song/radio playing Last Christmas by Wham with the faint sounds of Auld Lang Syne and fireworks.

Ya, escape to another room and use one of the subscription services.

I indulged in a graphic Polish movie called "Hatred" about a really unpleasant time in Polish/Ukrainian relations which had the second world war as it's backdrop. It was brutal. Perfect for Christmas.

That was sandwiched between binges of Lea Salonga.

So much better than television, lol

Still sounds less depressing than EastEnders!
