If they’re on, I’ll watch them – particularly if there’s nothing else on I fancy watching. I know some people get totally hooked on them, but I can take them or leave them. I quite like the gritty realism in some soaps but the majority are too far- fetched and I think they can all be blamed to some extent for reinforcing negative stereotypes in our society. They can set up expectations of people that live and work in the settings depicted in the soaps that are way off the mark. 2 Woman If you say you don’t like soaps, people look at you as if there’s something wrong with you. But, well, let’s face it, soaps are so corny – so sentimental. The acting’s usually atrocious and the story-lines are either hackneyed or downright unbelievable. How so many awful things can happen in one place, is simply absurd. They’re a right load of rubbish if you ask me. I’ve certainly got better things to do with my time than watch soaps. If only people put as much time and passion into their real-life communities as they do into their involvement with these fictional characters. 3 Man Look, don’t get me wrong, I’m the first to admit that they’re a complete waste of time but I watch them anyway if I’m around and they’re on.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
