I have watched many TV shows, but my favorite TV shows are friends. It was a famous television show. This is not just a good movie but it also helps people learn English. Its content is very good with many good actors and it is also funny because it makes me laugh whenever I watch it. At first I just watched it to improve my listening skills but then I became interested in it and I thought it was a lucky thing when I could watch a great TV show like it.

Hello Mayra

It's great that you want to communicate with other people to practise your English, but I'm afraid our House rules don't allow you to share the kind of personal information you would need to do this. This is for legal reasons. I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

All the best

Perhaps..... detective series.
They are guessing how the story ends.

Why do they say series instead of season?

Hello SpideyTeacher,

The use of 'season' for TV shows is quite a recent thing, at least in the UK. We always used to say 'series' and have only begun saying 'season' in the last decade or so. Before that, 'season' was used for sports leagues and so on, not for TV shows.

Hi, can you help me? The woman says: Of course! As if I would miss that! I don't understand it. What does it mean? Can you explain it? Thanks in advance.

Hello Hung,

We say 'as if...' when we want to show that something is so unlikely as to be absurd. The woman's response means something like 'I would never miss that!' or 'How could you think I might miss that?'

It's quite a common phrase in informal conversation between friends.

I suppose they talk about the game of thrones. I tried to watch the first episode and it seemed for me boring.
