    hi,
    my inlaws did the same.i just let them see whatever they want.i used to follow just one serial & the pace at which the serials move the story was still almost at same point after 3 mths.by that time i had lost interest in that serial & did not watch it further.
    if ur inlaws are visiting for long time its better to tell them that u want to watch ur serial at whatever time u used to watch.if they are for short time watch ur fav serial online & let them watch what they like..........

    Hi
    Aged people abroad have no other choice other than tv for their entertainment.
    When my in laws stayed with us for a couple of months,i never touched the remote.I watched my favourite programs online .Don t brood on this trivial matter too much dear.
    Enjoy your serials online

    In-laws are grown up more than the DIL I guess, why not share time, and let everyone watch few serials. In-laws can also watch DIL's fav serials for some time.

    Dont u know, people shd be taken care as kid again when they become older...

    I think its our duty to adjust with Inlaws in this matter...and as others said OP can watch her serials online...not a big deal!!!

    what is the necessity to think that they are more grown up and we r younger than them??It cant be told directly and shd not be told also...so we should find our own way..

    Its just my thought...

    Back in the days when we did not get Indian channels here parents visited too.
    My mil used to enjoy all the good old comedy sitcoms. Her English wasn't that great but she could follow and had a gala time. Her favorite was golden girls. She used to say she learnt a lot by watching that show about how age does not matter for enjoying life, looking good, being independent, and taking care of oneself.
    Sorry for going on about the old days. Currently I feel these Indian family drama tv serials are really causing lot of problems in family dynamics.
