Nearly everyday this happens to me. It would make funny viewing if this happened in soaps. - Britgirl

This would be funny - Curti2594

2 No one farts

Nope. Not a single tight spueak! - Britgirl

3 No one uses sexually explicit words

I know a fair number of soap operas that use these.

I've NEVER seen this. Yet. - Britgirl

6 Almost everyone is good looking

Not if the films portray some poor people.

Hollyoaks Calendars anyone?

I've wondered if they did, would they vote on my lists? - Britgirl

All they do is either use Facebook or YouTube lol

Too bad. They're missing out, - CityGuru

9 You never see anyone on the toilet
10 Hardly anyone owns a bike
