    We don't call Serials in English.

    Either they are Soap Operas, or Sitcoms, etc.

    I've heard TS (Tele? Series). And doesn't Sitcom suit only comedy series? Because it's situation comedy, isn't it?

    They also called TV series.

    Step by Step? I know this show. I know it is a pretty old serie with Susan Sommers. It used to be shown in Israel too, was pretty popular among the kids.

    Do you mean that one? or there's a different "Step by Step"?

    Yes, i have ment this one. There was one man, i think he was called COUDY - it was the best protagonist. What was his most famous replic in English? In Slovakia was this soap opera played only with czech dubbing, and the replic sounded alike: "Č

    TATY, why?

    I have heard somewhere, that it is because at first time the "serials" have been played in America, the only advertisements during broadcasting have been about soap - is it true?

    You are right, Leof, like you always are How do you does it? :P

    So you know MASH, and I guess, only guess the MASH was shown in Rosija, wasn't it?

    Leof, what does it mean "bonkers" ? Try to explain it in (i do not care, e.g.) Russian, Polish, Slovakian, Czech and maybe in English too.

    Thanks...

    Thank you Vincent!

    And (reasoning thoughtfully and modestly) bonkers (if I wrote right) are mmmmmm...are very cool and clever guys. But everyone arround thinks they are...they are bonkers!

    Ok. The doctors and others in MASH behave like they have only one aim - how to make their duty full of fun and cheer theirselves up! They act like bonkers. The tall surger is a complete one.

    Leof and I are bonkers, that's my explanation. At least, we've been called so once.

    A "serial" is a set of programs that has a continuing story. Like the 'Lone Ranger' and 'Buck Rodgers' shorts that were popular at movie houses in the 1930's 1940's. Every episode would end with a problem or "cliff-hanger" that would be resolved the following week.

    A "sitcom" is a stand alone story. A group of wakky/zany characters gets into a problem and resolves the issue in the space of 1/2 hour (minus the commercials)

    "soap - operas" are a dramatic, daily serial that had a target audience of housewives; the sponsors were largely household products companies. They have been proven to drive male lab rats insane and female lab rats incomprehensable to the male rats...

    Hehe. You're just now getting Step by Step in Slovakia? That show is old school -- like early 90s. And, just FYI, I farking hated that show. I'm sorry to threadcrap, but you did ask about it. I certainly hope it's not shown in Russia, because it it is, they'll launch their nukes in retaliation for that piece of crap.

    There are SO many other quality shows -- they even have 24 in Russia now. Who wouldn't want to watch Jack Bauer torturing someone in Russian?
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.
