Hi all, it's been a while!

I know most of you are in the U.S but I'm sure a lot of you would have heard of Eastenders, a long running soap on the BBC..well, last night one of the main characters, who dislikes dogs, was given a Basset pup to "convert" him..it looks about 3 months old....surely they would have picked a dog that will actually do as it's told, rather than what it wants!!...still, I suppose Columbo, and Smokey and the Bandit managed OK!!!

Yeah spotted that last night!!! Was out with my two today and passed a group of teenagers who said "Look it's that dog off Eastenders!" Made me smile :)

We don't get Eastenders here until they are WAY old. We won't see this one for years, probably :(

What is the Eastenders about. We get quite a bit of British comedy here, but I don't think we get this show. :(

OH NO!!!!! How could it not have been Coronation Street that got one :( . I never watch Eastenders (unless I've got some anti-depressants handy)and now I'll be sitting glued to it, in the hope of catching a glimpse of the basset :(

Eastenders certainly isn't a comedy!!!..it's a soap set in the Eastend of London, where they still eat jellied eels and talk in rhyming slang!
For your information the character with the Basset is called Ian Beale, he runs the Cafe and the Chip Shop, hence the pup is called "Chips" :p

The only british comedy that I know is : Mr. Beans and perhaps, Monty Phyton. :D
In fact, my hubby bought me a complete series of Mr. Beans for my Christmas gift!
