I cant believe how selfish and thoughtless Kenton has become, attempting to push Fallon/Reece out of The Bull,just because his bored with Jax and wants to have a cushy life funded by Jolene ! angry

I'd actually be pretty happy if they got rid of Reece (Rhys?) from the Bull as he is incredibly dull. And Fallon is obviously going to end up with him and she could do so much better.

Though I also have a horrible feeling they may be moving towards Ed and Fallon having a fling - or at least Ed trying it on - possibly when Emma is off at her posh wedding in London...

Kenton's always been like that though. We just haven't seen it for a while.
I don't think Ed and Fallon will have a fling, they've flung before!

I think Fallon could have a blast at Jax's. She can do her comedy and stuff and not have the old folks grumbling into their nearly pint glasses ( waiting for someone to walk into the pub and ask if they want another).

When exactly was Kenton anything other than selfish and thoughtless? I haven't gone off him, because I never liked him in the first place.

He's the black sheep he's got to keep up with his sheepish credentialsgrin Also wasn't Fallon getting bored at the Bull after being the boss and needs some new stimulation?

Rhys is just the most boring man in creation. I nearly started a new thread just to say that, but now I don't have to.

Fallon will come into her own when she goes to jacks. I hope we aren't building up to an Ed/Fallon affair, I can't stand Emma and we'll have more of her in it whining away.

I think Kenton is tiresome. I don't know what Jolene is doing with him. She needs a real man not that irritating wimp.

Emmur is far more tiresome than Kenton' why TF can't she just ask Will to buy George's trainers etc. He's his DAD FFS!!

I'm sick of Emmas moany, droney, voice at the moment too, why didn't she just fill in the form from the school and pay for the judo in instalments ?

MrsCampbellBlack Sun 21-Oct-12 08:46:10

I utterly loathe Emmur - god you silly cow now wonder your ex isn't terribly keen on you - you shagged his brother and plotted to flee with his son.

Kenton is so annoying with his job-swap stuff too - honestly I wish Kirsty would step up and stop being the assistant to everyone.

PseudoBadger Sun 21-Oct-12 09:02:36

You have to remember firstly that she gave up a lot to leave Will and be with Ed so she has a pretence to keep up in front of Will (where is Nic btw??)

And secondly who Emma's mother is (Radio Carter) and so she's fearful of being judged by the village (never bothered her before....)

"Radio Carter" grin

<lurks for later>

YY why is Nic not going to lose out on Bull shifts?!?

PseudoBadger Sun 21-Oct-12 16:21:35

Well quite, and why wasn't she mentioned during Jolene's absence?

PseudoBadger Sun 21-Oct-12 16:22:02

Will's probably got her tied up at home like an ovulating machine...

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 21-Oct-12 16:35:43

Lol Pseudo
You are right
And why hasn't Will bought Jake and Mia a sodding guineapig??

I think it is about time some Archers characters became MNers. Emma would get a right "pull yourself together" kicking, and Nic might get some reality checks as well - and God only knows Ruth could use some advice on teenagers and managing sibling rivalries.

not to mention someone could teach Emma about meal planning on a budget and stop Ed whingeing about fish paste sandwiches (is fish paste even cheap? really?)

I thought they were heading towards a "Ed depressed suicide" thing, although I must admit my listening has been a little laxer of late....

PseudoBadger Sun 21-Oct-12 23:12:41

We did have Helen in AIBU a couple of years ago grin

I'm bored by the Archers, which I find incredibly depressing. It used to be bonkers- but, with a good stretch of the imagination, credible. Now they are just taking the piss. Do you think the script writers think it's only old people who listen to it, and obviously old people don't matter?

Apart from anything else, it's all the abandoned story lines that get me. What happened about Amy finding out about her mother being in prison, or whatever it was? And Alasdair and Natalie? To name but two?
