Observations from sickbed: Day-time television sucks! SSDD, as Stephen King would say. Watching local German television, as well as tv from my native Finland, USA and UK.
Same characters telling talk-show hosts their husband is cheating and that's why they need cosmetic surgery, second class celebs selling wonderful cleaning products and these new inventions which help you lose 10 kilos or pounds overnight when sleeping, soaps where it takes 6 episodes for a character standing in doorstep of his bedroom to notice his wife is in bed with his brother etc.
