Is there a general Emmerdale thread?

I've found a couple of threads about particular characters but was wondering if there was one just for general observations <geek> and if we could have a hands up to see if anyone else cried at Brenda's hair thing. I thought all those tears and smiles looked real <sniff>

Do I need to get a life? blush

"Tanning with Tina" maybe the worlds worst spin off series?

SlatternismyMiddlename Sat 20-Jul-13 12:31:16

Love "tanning with Tina".

What about a documentary "neatness by Nikhil" or by the sound of some previous post "naughtiness with Nikhil"..........

Begginyouformercy Sat 20-Jul-13 14:57:01

Ooo, yes please - to both.

Not fussed for the tanning though grin (AIBU to mention Michelle in Corrie being a bit over done last week? wink)

I do hope wee Gennie's not going to try having a singing career and her song at the wedding was a hint to Simon Cowell or someone of that ilk. I don't want her to leave, she's one of the nice ones sad.

Victoria's too whiney - they need to lighten her up a bit or put her in the car with Gennie

I'm in. I love Emmerdale.
Totally agree the Rhona/drugs/Vanessa thing is now tedious beyond belief. Am I the only one who can't stand Paddy? I don't know why I don't like the character but I just don't.
I love Nikhil and Gennie. Never noticed the CDs in colour order. Brilliant little touch! smile
Just can't understand why Chas puts up with bloody Cameron. He is NEVER there when she needs him and is a total flake. Have just read through this week's blurb in the tv supplement of the paper and Gennie is in a car accident!!!! Oh no! I BET it will be something to do with Cameron. I agree that whatever happens to her will be Cameron related as she is on to him big time.
I think my total worst character is Robbie! Bad character badly acted.

yamsareyammy Sat 20-Jul-13 22:19:03

ooh no. Paddy is nice. And funny.

But no no no I dont read spoilers.
Will have to hide this thread!

Ellenora5 Sat 20-Jul-13 22:29:21

Please don't post spoilers sad

lovelychops Sun 21-Jul-13 17:02:07

"Neatness with Nikhil" sounds genius!!

Yes to who noticed Robbie's rubbishness, he's a bit redundant now isn't he?

cafenoir Sun 21-Jul-13 21:29:37

Sorry. Won't post any spoilers from now on.
Robbie has been pretty pointless all along. Now utterly pointless. I think they could lose Megan too.

lovelychops Sun 21-Jul-13 21:42:38

Megan had a personality change. I don't mind her now.

If anyone could go, for me it would be Shaun. He's gormless to say the least. What was the point of the teen pregnancy storyline? Though I quite liked it when he got electrocuted wink

Ellenora5 Sun 21-Jul-13 23:27:53

Thanks cafenoir, ye Robbie has been a non story all along, there was no point to him at all, just as there was no point to Megan, I don't think Declan will be around much longer either, no one ever lasts long in the big house.

lovelychops, couldn't agree more about Shaun, I couldn't stand him from the day he was first seen and when he has that hideous baseball cap on he looks like a girl, it took me ages to figure out that he was male, and where is the little sister lately, at the 24 hour child minders I suppose, along with Samson, Daniel, Gabby and Leo, and are we ever going to get a look at Bernice other daughter, and why does she never want to see her!!

ChippingInHopHopHop Sun 21-Jul-13 23:44:40

I love Emmerdale - but if you tell anyone outside this thread, I will have to kill you wink

I love Moira.

I hope Eric & Val don't go.

It's a shame Gennie is going.

I wish Amy's Mam would go and take Preya with her.

Fed up with the Cameron/Chaz/Debbie shite.

Shaun's alright - he's a good actor.

Love Marlon, Paddy & Laurel - used to like Rhona. Dislike Vanessa.

JustGiveMeFiveMinutes Sun 21-Jul-13 23:52:34

Gennie is leaving? Noooooo! Why? I'm sure the actress will be ok. I think she's a great actress. Hope Val and Eric don't go. Love Amy too.

SlatternismyMiddlename Sun 21-Jul-13 23:54:16

Ooooh, Cain and Moira, there is a storyline that I like.

I'm not fond of Katie's pout but I have enjoyed her and Declan getting all snippy with each other.

Sleepyfergus Mon 22-Jul-13 03:47:52

Yes, am liking Cain and Moira. She is a good influence on him and they do act well together. You can sort of understand that they have 'fallen' for each other, and have real passion.

Do David and Priya get married then? Is Alesha with Dom(?). I liked David and Alesha together.

Yy to pointless Robbie. Never liked him, and can't stand Shaun either. He has a sneery face. And that bloody baseball cap! Is it a rite of passage or what? Liam in Eastenders used to wear his 24/7 too until recently!

cafenoir Mon 22-Jul-13 10:12:14

I don't actually mind Shaun. I loathed the whole family when they first arrived but now I like them. I would love to be the Emmerdale childminder. They must be raking the cash in what with so many kids there 24/7. Who is DANIEL? shock I've been watching just over 2 years but can't bring a Daniel to mind.

And YY Moira is such a good influence on Cain. He's developing quite a conscience bless him.

Ellenora5 Mon 22-Jul-13 12:26:12

He's Laurel and Ashleys little boy cafenoir, isn't he, or maybe I'm getting confused confused

lovelychops Mon 22-Jul-13 12:27:44

Another vote for Cain and Moira! I like them.

I don't care for Moira's son though, he does nothing.

Did you know Debbie and David are together in real life?

My MIL said the man who plays Alan Turner had died recently. Is this true?

Ellenora5 Mon 22-Jul-13 12:33:50

Oh no, scrap my last post, the child is called Arthur, don't know where I got Daniel from.

Yes he passed away a couple of weeks ago lovelychops

Ye I saw them on Mr and Mrs, she had absolutely no personality at all, there child is Buster as far as I remember

Ellenora5 Mon 22-Jul-13 12:35:55

God almighty what is wrong with me today, that should say, their child is called Buster, mind you the way I'm thinking today I could be wrong on that aswell. I think Rhona and Cain have two kids in real life.

Whats Shauns Dad called again, I like his character, he could have some comedy storylines, it would suit him.

yy to Moria and Cain, they make a good couple, but wish her miserable son would do one.

wheres Edna? have I missed something?

Ellenora5 Mon 22-Jul-13 12:55:01

He's called Dan, I like him too, he can be very funny, don't know where Edna is lately, I'm another who wish Adam would do one, his brother is a much better actor.

mrsdinklage Mon 22-Jul-13 12:59:44

Dan is funny - I don't know why they don't make more use of him. I don't understand why Moira lets Adam live with her.

Footface Mon 22-Jul-13 14:24:40

Daniel was laurel and ashley baby he died of SIDS a few years ago now

Sleepyfergus Mon 22-Jul-13 14:45:22

Yeah, Dan is growing on me, and so is Amy's mum in a weird way. I'd like to see her an Dan properly fall in lurve and for her to amend her ways a bit (but not too much).

When does Charity find out about Archie??

Begginyouformercy Mon 22-Jul-13 15:36:17

Aw, I didn't know RL Alan Turner had died sad.

Did anyone see that programme they did about the making of their 40th (or whatever it was) live episode? OMG I loved that blush. The RL Shaun was on and I almost didn't recognise him - he looked like quite a nice chap shock. I think that shows how good an actor he is to get us all hating him so much grin.

I wish Priya would bugger off and let David marry Alicia.
