Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden: Globalization and Soaps

At appears as though the soap opera death throws have already begun-- at least in America. If, like me, you enjoy trashy televsion from continental Europe, might I introduce you to the longest running soap on Dutch television Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden (that would be Good Times, Bad Times). It's trashy, it's foreign, and it's amazing. Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden in all of its campy contiental glory is freely available on YouTube for your viewing pleasure-- an episode from last week is linked below. I know, I know: you're welcome.
