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.

I couldn't guess what this story was because I don't watch TV doramas or movies very much. My favorite TV series was "24" though it was a little old one.

This conversation is very helpful for me. I have learn some of new words for this. thank admind very much

I know what they are chatting about. Got is talked by this person. The people like very much got because of their unpredictable scenes. For example you expect any character will be a key person who struggle with others. But suddenly you are surprised due to of his or her death. Despite of the fact that this series have many unexpected and unpredictable scenes, it is getting boring. Why? I don't know. I suppose that writers act commercial concerns rather than art. I don't have now any favorite tv shows or series. I belive series should contain reality. It can offer real life sections. For this reason I enjoy Realtime shows and like events taht quoted real life.

Is it just me or the audio ISN'T working?

Hello Marcos V,

There is a technical problem with our audio. I'm sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for telling us. We are working on a solution and hopefully the audio will be working soon.

Best wishes,

I don't know about films very well, so I can't imagine this film that is chatted by them.
My favorite TV show is an program of animals because I like animals very much, and I think it has a healing effect. So I always watch not only Japanese program of animals, but also video of animals on my phone.

game of thrones is by far my favorite show of all the times! I started to watching it when i was on high school a friend told me he was watching a new medieval serie where dragons can burn people ahahah
so i decided to watch it and i really fell in love! i literally watched 3 seasons in like 2 weeks!
but the ending wasn't the best, i expected more! i thought last season was poor but not poor in budget or cast but poor in history! I agree with the audio because without the help of the books the serie becomes very predictable!
