    • Ha ha, maybe! I also watch a lot of trash but I know that they are not “good” shows and wouldn’t say they were my favourites (like CSI, True Blood etc)

    • That’s a shame, its really great. Here in Britain we have a good channel called BBC4 which shows a lot of Euro dramas like that. I never actually watched The West Wing when it was on TV but a friend lent me the DVDs and I got hooked! Thanks for reading and commenting! x
