    Every now and then, I'll find myself watching the Spanish channels just for the unique ness of the shows.

    Apparently I'm not the only one hooked on the Spanish Channel shows, even though I don't understand a word of it. Local DJ's where talking about the exact same show I happened to tune in to and couldn't help but laugh. We must have been watching the Spanish version of Jerry Springer, and every now and then the curse words where bleeped out. We didn't understand a word of it, so there would be no need for the bleeps [​IMG].

    I also like to watch Aye carumba every now and then, since that's one show that dosn't need translation. Basically a clone of Americas Funniest home videos.

    With the popularity of Japanese Anime, and the respect people show for the originals being subtitled, isn't there a chance these foreign stations would subtitle their shows as well, using Closed Captions?

    I'd REALLY like to understand what goes on in some of these, and surley I can't be alone in that [​IMG].

    I watch "Sabado Gigante" every once in a while, because it's a nice change from all the american shows. It reminds me quite a bit of the Swedish Saturday-night variety shows, except the Spanish ones have much hotter women, and most of them in bikinis. [​IMG]

    I don't think they're lacking money for English subtitles (at least Telemundo should be able to afford it, they're owned by NBC), just the viewership to make it worthwhile.

    >As someone who grew up a few miles from Wyckoff -- in Paterson and Haledon -- might I suggest driving down Goffle Brook Road and making a Spanish-speaking friend or two and watching television with them?>

    I would, but that would make me seem even more dumb by asking, "What did they just say" every ten minutes [​IMG].
