    I as much as I like some of the stuff AFN has (ie live sports) I cant really stand the rest of it.....News on practically every channel at the same time....The same olympic event on 3 different channels? what the hell is up with that?

    Dude, AFN blows.

    Get your butt off the couch and go downtown. Songtan has places you can go to watch the Olympics. And for bonus points if the ROKs win a medal the ladies will be really nice to you.

    Glad I don't have to worry about AFN for a while. Had enough of it in the Chow Halls at Bagram. The commercials are the worst!!! You know it is time to redeploy when you know what state it is on the state quiz after the first 3 words, lol.

    Consider yourself lucky to have access to AFN.

    Well hell they are allowing social networking now. Thats one thing I actually got from AFN. I get my month break to watch some real TV this coming Friday. Midtour!!!! Of course I wont see my house till about 5-6 hours after I get off the plane cause theres a hockey game going on that night and I'll be there!

    "We know you're really dumb, so here's some reminders.

    Don't shake your baby.

    Don't drink and drive on the autobahn.

    Don't take drugs of unknown origin from a girl you just met.

    Wear your seatbelts.

    If you're on a motorcycle, wear your helmet, gloves, jacket, chaps, and road vest.

    Spend some time with your kids. What a concept, huh?

    And finally, keep your common areas neat."

    You must be talking about the motorcylist that wastes a perfectly good apple to demonstrate road rash?

    What about the chick that has breast cancer and gets sexually harrassed....rough life for her I guess.


    The people who think these commercials up must be "Capt. Obvious"...yes pun intended

    Think about the days when it was not there or only on for a couple of hours a day.

    Oh, AFN. Right. No.

    Thought you said AVN. Was gonna say yes, if by "stuck" you mean locked myself in a room, barred the door, and made popcorn.

    Carry on.

    True, I do know that they have improved alot since the last time I was stuck watchin it in the UK back in '02. What made it better there was that the local channels were in english.....in korea not so much
