The activity was very dynamic and interesting

Obviously they were talking about Game of Thrones, this well knows series around the world. Everyone has spoken about it, and spoiler it so I lost my interest to watch it, although I know a lot about it from my brother. I'm not keen on fantasy series/movies, I prefer mystery or action. My favorite series that I watched lately was Bold type. There were three main characters, three women who gave us a role model, how should women fight for her rights and pass all the obstacles in order to be successful

The dragon makes me think that this chat might be about the Game of Thrones series; it is so famous and I have heard a lot about it. I haven't seen it, though. To be honest, I don't have much time to watch series and I'm not really keen on watching TV either, even the news I usually read them on the Internet. I remember the last series I saw was Breaking Bad. I liked that show very much, obviously, my favourite character was Walter White; I was impressed by his smartness and the way he transformed from education into crime.

Obviously, they talked about "Game of Thrones". It's too famous to not be recognized even for those who didn't watch a single episode. Like me, by the way. Still can't find enough time to watch this series despite I've already read the whole "Song of the Fire and Ice" story.
Talking about my favorite TV series - it's a well-known American sitcom "Friends". I think it's the best TV-show ever. I love all these main characters (Joey, Chandler, Ross, Pheaby, Monika Rachel) and even minor characters. Some episodes I've already watched many times and, telling the truth, I will watch them again ))

You are right "Friends" is one of the famous TV shows worldwide, some of my friends suggest it to me to improve my English skills.

I can't known predictable what's this series, my favorite TV show are national geographic ABU DABI programs.

Dear team.
From the lesson above.
Woman: Of course! As if I would miss that!
The question is :
What is the different from 'As if I would miss that!' and ' I would not miss that!'
is it same meaning or not??
Thank you very much for your explanation and answer

Hello fahri,

Yes, they basically mean the same thing -- that the woman would not miss that because she likes it a lot.

You can see more about 'as if' by following the link.

All the best,
