Old Geezer 1:  You know these ‘soaps’ are unrealistic!

Old Geezer 2: You think?

Firstly they’re set around pubs but nobody plays ‘crib’.

Not exactly a spectator sport!

Secondly, in Eastenders nobody watches Eastenders, but in the real world 80% of the population spend 80% of their free time watching  such drivel.

So, you’d have characters on Eastenders watching Eastenders.

Who are also watching Eastenders…… ad infinitum.

A bit ‘Flann O’Brien’.

An improvement though!

True!……  Your box.
