Do you love them or hate them, what you might ask? I'm talking about tv programmes about hospitals the soapy kind. I love them and can't get enough , I would watch them all day if I could. I think I am a bit bias though as I worked in a hospital for 21years and really miss it now as I had to give it up when I had a few operations. I was at the hub of the hospital as a receptionist, telephonist, sending out ambulances, dealing with drunks,the list goes on, I was even likened to the receptionist on Shortland Street by a bunch of footballers who had brought their mate in because he damaged his toe. I really miss the goings on, as there was always some drama to attend to. So bring on the hospital soapys.

I like All Saints which is filmed in Australia but I don't know if it is aired there. I see you are in New Zealand. Have you ever heard of it?

Hi, thanks for your response. No I'm sorry I haven't heard of the show, but will keep an eye open for it though. Have a great day.

Sorry kiwikidz.....this time I have to disagree with you. I think TV soaps are the greatest time wasters and they are simply (from what I've seen) absolutely unrealistic....I would much rather play on my computer if I had that sort of time to waste....

Thanks for your comments, I know I love on my computer as well unfortunately I don't have broadband or any of the fancy fast internet connections so I have to limit my time as people are always saying, I tried to get you all day and your phone was engaged, my reply usually is, if I was out working you wouldn't get me anyway, after my tv watching at night I sneak onto the computer and catch up with my wee jobs online and then race over here to mylot (which I love) and do some replies and some discussions, but I am drawn to the hospital programmes when on.
