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.

Exactly what I had said at home put it in the bag and keep the bag on your person.

yes I guess cindy takes the blame. or maybe the girl in the pub with dexter took it? she left before him??

ooh! I didn't realise that about the girl from the pub. I was MNing at the time grin her dad did seem a bit dodgy didn't he? maybe she was a set-up to distract dexter while he ransacked the caravan and then he called her (didn't he?) to let her know the coast was clear?

yes. that was my thinking. if its not that I think the eastenders script writer's need sacking off. you and I can take their place we have a good story going here. ha

StephenFrySaidSo Wed 28-Aug-13 00:45:46

grin

I think they need sacking off anyway! it's awful atm.

Death of friend is better plot then shagging half sister

So they all complain about lack of luggage space in car yet no one thought of moving parcel shelf and would have found cindy there?

NachoAddict Wed 28-Aug-13 20:47:31

Where did you hear about the friend hastag?

Ohhh I suspected Cindy first for the money but it would make sense that abbey kept it in the bag.

I read it in a magazine nacho

NachoAddict Thu 29-Aug-13 22:01:42

Well done hashtag you were right! Glad they didn't drag it out.

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 30-Aug-13 08:01:11

Felt sorry for Peter when he told his sad tale and I wanted to hug him or get lexi to - and she said nothing and walked away with Abbie

And ffs Abbie - take a test before worrying /telling jay - also she's looking really chunky sad esp her legs - didnt used to look like that sad

Leaving £10k under the sink - obv girl stole it back

Tut tut jay for kissing her

SilveryMoon Fri 30-Aug-13 09:40:44

Abby's always been on the chunky side. I think they did the casting well there because she does remind me of Tanya (although Abby annoys the f out of me)
Didn't really watch last nights, will give it a look later.

StephenFrySaidSo Fri 30-Aug-13 09:47:03

same here silver WRT abby/Tanya. I think soaps need to have more 'chunky' young actors tbh. they all seem to be stick thin at the moment. i'm thinking of poppy/lauren/lucy. even dexter and jay are very thin. Tanya and abby although both heavier, dress really well and don't appear overweight to me.

Kaluki Fri 30-Aug-13 12:53:04

Did we see Abby with the money in her bag at the beginning of last nights or did I imagine that?
I find it hard to concentrate on EE lately - its such a lot of bollocks.
As if Phil would trust a bunch of teenagers with a deal like that.

SilveryMoon Fri 30-Aug-13 20:25:00

Yes, I love Tanya's style. I want it, but am a frump
Kaluki that was the pregnancy test, I'm sure.

Kaluki Fri 30-Aug-13 20:30:56

Yes you are right!
I should concentrate more!!! smile

SilveryMoon Fri 30-Aug-13 20:33:47

So, it was Cindy. What a surprise. That scene with Phil and Dexter was shit

Kaluki Fri 30-Aug-13 20:35:49

What a shit plan!!
Of course phil wouldn't believe it!!
Numptys!

I thought how stupid it is when Lauren is an alcoholic that as soon as she gets back her family have a party with alcohol, they have it in the house, max is constantly drinking,in front of her and she goes on a night out with her 'friends' to a club. Surely if your dd was an alcoholic you wouldn't do this.

I am bored of all the Lucy,Whitney,Joey,Lauren thing. How,many times can he be with one and chest with another. Plus Lucy is meant to be her best friend and spikes her drink, tries to steal her boyfriend. Who needs friends like,that.

StephenFrySaidSo Fri 30-Aug-13 21:00:16

did they just leave all their bags in the caravan park?

SilveryMoon Fri 30-Aug-13 21:13:09

cleo I know, right! My best friend is a recovering alcoholic. She has been sober for 11 years, she still goes to meeting 3 times a week at least, and although she now goes to pubs bars etc and has people dinking around her, it took years to get to that stage.

The Easties is utter rubbish, my brain cell almost died last night sad

Bakingnovice Sun 01-Sep-13 21:04:32

Utter crap.

Are Carl and the northern guy from Lauren's counselling brothers? Can't tell them apart. I've decided to switch off until Carl fucks off. I can't watch his Carl comedy villain routine. He makes me throw things at the tv.

Goodbye EE. And you used to be good viewing.

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 01-Sep-13 22:30:07

just catching up

so cindy stole the money - that will REALLY make the rest of the teenagers in ee like her - not!!!!

and yes the lauren/booze story is stupid - her family/friends would try the best to avoid booze if for the first 6mths around her

and if that addicted and shakes etc, she wouldnt be ok in 2 weeks and back to normal life

ChocsAwayInMyGob Mon 02-Sep-13 12:17:21

Bakingnovice, you are so right. I have watched EE on and off since it began (old gimmer) Lately we have loads of eps stacked up on SkyPlus and I'm just not interested in watching them..

I hate Carl, I hate how they have to have a nasty baddie in at all times they are always unrealistically evil with no good points. Cindy Jr was so obviously the thief she may as well have worn an "I stole it" T shirt.

Janine is just frustrating to watch. she can only do bitch these days.

I might watch again when Ronnie comes out and the cast are all over the age of 19 again. I do like NewPeter though.

Tiredemma Mon 02-Sep-13 12:23:35

I've deduced that its all utter shite.

I cannot bear Dexter and all his 'ghetto' chat shit and Abby makes me feel depressed

ChocsAwayInMyGob Mon 02-Sep-13 13:51:46

I know it's a cliche but it really is too depressing for words. Its misery heaped upon misery. There is no light relief. I just don't want to watch it right now.

It seems to be:

Carl being menacing and scaring people.
Phil being menacing and scaring people.
Cindy Jnr being panto style sly and crafty.
Janine making Michael's life a misery.
Billy getting fired and rehired all the time.

The message ends up being: nothing good ever happens and if it does it soon goes wrong. You may as will give up now. Life is all grey and misery.

Where Corrie gets it right is where they do a little comedy scene or a one liner when things get too dark.
