this is not going to end well.

Helen always has to have Complications, doesn't she? It's one of the laws of Ambridge.

MrsDeVere Sun 28-Jul-13 19:54:45

It will give her something to angst about.
Its been a while.

LizzieVereker Sun 28-Jul-13 19:59:58

Yes, I think I heard her laughing earlier in the week, about Tom's shrink wrapping crisis, so they need to redress the balance of gloom.

He is just so revolting. She knows how to pick 'em, doesn't she?

MrsDeVere Sun 28-Jul-13 20:13:33

It will play nicely against the backdrop of Kenton and Joelene's nuptials.
If they time it right she might be able to spread misery at the reception.

BoreOfWhabylon Sun 28-Jul-13 20:16:58

Leave the bastard, Jess!

That's true, can't decide which one is more barftastic (K+J or H+R). Probably H+R, but it's a close call.
(Haven't a romantic bone in my body, before you ask).

MrsDeVere Sun 28-Jul-13 20:52:59

Robhell?
Quite apt I think smile

Joken?
Also fairly apt.

I am a huge fan of TA. Don't know why because it drives me bonkers. I do not like anyone in it and if I hear the words sausages or ready meals one.more.time....

And don't get me started on Clarrie morphing into Pam Ayres overnight.

God I wish I understood The Archers, just so I could join in these threads.
I've had it on as background noise on and off for years and this morning was quite entertained by someone not being allowed to play "I Fought The Law" on the bagpipes, but I still don't understand. Even when I force myself to really concentrate I don't understand.

MrsDeVere Sun 28-Jul-13 21:08:02

There is no need to understand.
I have been listening for years and I still can't quite
tell everyone apart.
The MC ones are all shrill and melodramatic
The WC ones are all thick and dishonest and either speak like a wurzel or someone from Eastenders.

Hassled Sun 28-Jul-13 21:30:55

grin

I only recognise Linda Whatsit. I like Linda.

JollyGolightly Mon 29-Jul-13 18:49:44

I bet she posts in Relationships and gets a thorough flaming.

LondonMother Mon 29-Jul-13 22:46:03

I've been listening actively for over 30 years and passively for 20 years before that and I can't claim to understand it either. TA passeth all understanding. Will Kirsty keep her mouth shut about Helen and Rob? I hope not.

StayAwayFromTheEdge Tue 30-Jul-13 22:21:21

I feel like the odd one out in that it all makes perfect sense - Been listening for more years than I like to remember though!

PareyMortas Tue 30-Jul-13 22:24:30

Me too stay away, I love it. Fwiw I think Helen and Rob are a good match, he's got baggage which is what Helen always goes for and her mother disapproves of him.

babybarrister Tue 30-Jul-13 22:26:41

WTF is Rob tHough ? Is he a new comer ?!

GrimmaTheNome Tue 30-Jul-13 22:32:46

>WTF is Rob tHough ? Is he a new comer ?!
not that new. He's the manager for Brian's megadairy. He's got a wife who won't move to Ambridge because of her job (I think).

babybarrister Tue 30-Jul-13 23:11:17

Thanks grin - what about Lizzie - will sh get off with that blokefrom the bank? Smeone needs to be found for the poor widow ,.....!!!

Tommy Tue 30-Jul-13 23:13:18

car crash radio....... can't bear Hell-in so I'm meanly hoping it will all end in tears...

LadyBigtoes Tue 30-Jul-13 23:18:02

I used to keep up with TA but I'm really behind with it all atm. However my loathing for whiny Helen remains undiminished. I turned it on the other day and what do I hear - yada, yada, yada my wife doesn't understand me - "You poor thing" - "Oh Helen!" - followed by the dreaded Archers snog which always sounds like a toilet being plunged. (We can't work out that they've fallen into each other's arms of course - there always have to be those grim sucky noises)

Gross!

I don't really understand who Rob is but by the sounds of his self-pitying moan I reckon he's a scheming liar/bigamist/wrongun and it will all go tits up for Helen again.

Also heard Jolene planning her wedding but I had no idea who to!

LizzieVereker Tue 30-Jul-13 23:19:17

Who is the man who keeps telling Cathy off?

LizzieVereker Tue 30-Jul-13 23:21:05

Jolene is planning her wedding to Kenton, Lady - Kenton! And Fallon is fine about it (or so she says...)

PareyMortas Tue 30-Jul-13 23:23:33

Joleneis marrying Kenton, so she'll become an Archer.

The horrible man telling CKathy off is on the board of Borchester Land and is for some reason looking into how the golf club is run.

I thought I'd caught every episode in years, but somehow missed what happened between Lizzie and the dishy golf/tutor chap. They were heading for romance then nothing, what did I miss?

Tommy Tue 30-Jul-13 23:26:28

Lizzy invited Ifti round for dinner, had got rid of the kids for the evening and put "Move Closer" on the CD.....the got all flustered when he made a move.
Don't think we've heard from him since hmm
