bklyntvyahoocom 22 Jun 2006 If, like me, you're finding there's even less to watch than usual this summer, give Footballer's Wives on BBC America a try. It's a pretty funny and interesting show. Sort of a cross between Absolutely Fabulous and a traditional Brit or Aussie soap. It's not for everyone but if you ever laughed at the camp soap opera hysterics on Dynasty or Melrose Place you'll probably enjoy it. It even has it's own JR/Alexis: Tanya, who's a pretty awesome love-to-hate-her charactor. As an American I find it entertaining for the "foreign" language and the clothes as well. And being British they touch on subjects that are often too taboo for delicate US audiences. One straight guy--a main charactor--sleeps with a gay guy, an infant is killed just an episode after being born--and by the family dog yet!
