I decided to watch Don Matteo, which I haven't watched for years. I have a TV machine, but I don't watch it, though I kept it on on long nights during the Olympics while I was doing something else with my computer.
When I came back home, I marked those Don Matteo episodes for saving (they are saved to my cloud quota).
Yes, you can say that it is a soap opera, but there is enough suspension there, and above all humour.
And above all there are little girls, like Emma Reale and Letizia Arno, both very cute Italian girls.
What the hell, I know one professor who is a very intelligent man and watches Korean soap operas with his wife!
