  4. Parents - Teenagers or Toddlers?

    A question to all the Mums & Dads out there who have teenage kids. I was thinking the other day how much I love being a Dad to my kids (6, 4, & 2), and then started wondering if it all goes pear shaped once they hit puberty? There seem so many more things to worry about - drugs, fights, and the...

    TV Shows that have been made into successful films

    I was talking to my mate about this the other night and just how many of them sucked ***. We started initially talking about comedy shows, but then veered off onto others. Can you think of many that have worked successfully? Or more importantly, the reason why they rarely ever do? We couldn't...

    Battle of the Sitcoms - THE FINAL !!!!!!

    Ok ok, i know the second semi hasn't quite finished, but it'd take a cunning plan of Baldrick proportions for that result to change so i'm using poetic licence to kick this off now so i can get some work done :( Well, i think its been fun and extremely well fought, and after 30 matches and 2285...

    Would you support a readers wives section on Szone?

    Last night after I would say 6-7 pints at the SZBC, Josh C came up with the brilliant idea of a readers wives style section on the zone. This would of course be a 16+ area so as not to enrage the many younger readers parents. The basic principle is that we would have a adults only section where...

    "The Streets New Album

    I like it, I like the honesty and he's not singing about what he was doing ten years ago. "The fine art of hotel expressionism.....the mini bar can be part of the art." Great. Never went to church is a great song, definate single ? and means a lot to those of us who have lost their dads. All...
