I know it's been shit for ages but its just dire atm. I'm a bit behind and stopped watching when bunhead Lauren was getting drunk. Switched back on and she's back from rehab. Was her rehab in the Maldives? I'm sick to the back teeth of her and joey. What a mockery they've made of teen drinking showing her recovered. She's a terrible actress.

Lucy is weird and for an eastender she's got a v posh accent. As has bobby. And Dennis. And Sharon.

And I really don't like how every victim of sexual abuse is portrayed as promiscuous. In one episode we see Kat dragging a guy into an alley for a quickie and Whitney getting into a car with strange men. Not every child victim is like kat and bloody Whitney. Utter tosh. I need another long break from it. I only came back to it cos corrie is terrible these days.

We needed a new Eastenders thread, the old one being full!

The last time I saw Corrie (never watched it) it was a bit like a pantomime. Guessing it hasn't changed much. EE is admittedly rubbish too, though grin

You're absolutely right. It's an insult, in a way, Lauren's miraculous, speedy, and downright unrealistic, recovery from alcohol. She's a dreadful actress. And the Joey love triangle (s) are tedious, with Lauren unhealthily obsessed attached to him.

I don't get the vast difference in accents between some of the siblings. confused

I've stopped watching it. It is so boring compared to Hollyoaks. It's the same storey line, badly written and acted.

I know it's utterly tedious at the moment if I didn't love Alfie so much and wasnt habituated would have given up ages ago.

Really love Michael these days read they killing him off when he leaves hmm

Michaels leaving?! He's the only watchable person. Although I can't stand Janine any more. I used to love her but she's gone all up market and with a ridiculously posh accent. I liked her when she was poor and evil.

Where did janine get all that money? She was always skint? Eastenders is also annoying me at the moment

yellowballoons Mon 26-Aug-13 11:24:31

Corrie is annoying me the most.
In what planet are Sally and who ever he is called, an item. Though I do feel sorry for corrie, having to do hasty re scripting.

Now, Eastenders.
Agree, that is in a stoopid phase too!

Janine inherited money from her gran. Am sure it was about 1million at the time but its now about 100 million. She's bought half the square, been around the world twice, buying half of canary wharf and employs half the cast. I just think its really silly. The other day she was turning her nose up at a shop sarnie. I don't think you'd change that dramatically after being poor all your life. Oh and I just cannot bear to watch Danny and his poofy hair.

I stopped watching it ages ago i was sick of watching Lauren gulping vodka down, I think i saw the one where she was in hospital though where has tanya gone ( i know the actress left) but why did tanya leave her daughters where did she go, DD had it on the other night whats herface had failed her exams so she wasn't going to be a vet hmm

mrsjay Mon 26-Aug-13 18:55:52

ABBEY* i forgot her name

StephenFrySaidSo Mon 26-Aug-13 19:00:28

Tanya sold the salon and moved down to live near to where lauren was in rehab even though lauren only stayed for what seemed like 20 minutes (under a sunbed?) Tanya is staying wherever it is she moved with oscaaar.

StephenFrySaidSo Mon 26-Aug-13 19:02:04

all the soaps are really boring me atm. part of me is hoping that the police will charge Declan with murder just so i have something to be outraged about. i might even make a placard 'free the emmerdale one' grin

StephenFrySaidSo Mon 26-Aug-13 19:03:29

hang on-i think ive missed an ep of emmerdale- do they know it's alex now?

mrsjay Mon 26-Aug-13 19:05:20

oh i love how they recover so quickly it is like phils 5 minute crack addiction,does she not know Laurens out of rehab and poor Abs all alone

cocolepew Mon 26-Aug-13 19:06:10

Who on earth is Cindy? DD watches it and I argued with her that Cindy was dead. I didn't realise there was another one confused

mrsjay Mon 26-Aug-13 19:07:43

Oh i know i know grin cindy is cindys daughter by some dude then she died , ( i saw it on the front of the tv magazine)

StephenFrySaidSo Mon 26-Aug-13 19:10:35

yes i was trying to google who cindy was but all i got was stuff about the blonde cindy who i knew had died and wasn't 15 hmm it's all very odd.

mrsjay Mon 26-Aug-13 19:11:49

maybe her gran has died she went to live with her gran after mum cindy died and lucy and peter are her next of kin ?

mrsjay Mon 26-Aug-13 19:12:01

dont even get me started on new peter

Fairy130389 Mon 26-Aug-13 19:12:47

I'm just thankful the 'Lola gets baby removed due to lack of nappies' storyline is over!

Also, you would think that Ian would realise that all of his children are now imposters. Perhaps he's too busy recovering from his 5 minute nervous breakdown.

StephenFrySaidSo Mon 26-Aug-13 19:14:36

imposters? are they not his children?

mrsjay Mon 26-Aug-13 19:14:54

oh yes I saw that when lola got the baby back that was sweet and i did awwy cos that was just the worst child neglect storyline ever

mrsjay Mon 26-Aug-13 19:15:46

Oh isnt ronnie coming back now surely in real life a baby snatcher would have some sort of bail conditions not to come anywhere near the family of the baby she snatched hmm

mrsjay Mon 26-Aug-13 19:16:15

different actors stephen

MyBoysAreFab Mon 26-Aug-13 19:17:04

I had no idea who Cindy was either.

It is shit now and the only reason I watch it now occasionally is because I think Michael is brilliant.
