Emmerdale- are we in the least bit bovvered what happens in The Dales right now?

(526 Posts)

the last thread got to 1000 (took 2 and a half YEARS grin )

So:
Paddy and Rhona off to Germany with Marlons blessing.
Why did Rhona say "Pretend you fell off a horse" to explain his bruise. He's a Vet. He could've been kicked by any sort of animal, he's the most unlikely equestrian ever.

Eric- something going on with him. Not just a touch of dodgy tummy, I reckon he'll have something serious and bowel related (a slow burn storyline )

Holly- can't stick her, whiney irritating little twerp.

Charity, you are not the hottest thing to walk the Dales. Go Away.

Ashley sad

Chrissie/Andy/Robert .
Chrissie and Robert are talking . Is there going to be another Sudgen Brother Love Triangle? (Yawn)

RudeElf Sat 26-Mar-16 13:23:07

Yes the dales is the only soap that is holding my attention at the minute. Much helped by surprise taps aff moments from ross and andy i must say grin

Groan @ holly being back. So she's still an addict. Yawn. Couldnt they have come up with something new for her?

Do you think Eric will have cancer? I hope not! Hes not the same without Val but i'm not ready to see him go.

Yy to chrissy/rob/andy triangle. They should have finished robert when they had the chance. Hateful character. And charity. She needs to go for good. And debbie needs to come back so ross turns nice again.

Really want Robert to end up with Aaron not that it will last but don't want him back with Chrissie

RudeElf Sat 26-Mar-16 13:29:58

I dont think robert is good for anyone let alone poor aaron! Hes been through the emotional wringer once with andy and now with hsmis dad. Robert is a manipulative user. I think Aaron is tok vulnerable for that right now.

RudeElf Sat 26-Mar-16 13:30:34

Btw is anyone else loving how fantastic Chrissy looks with her new hair! She s gorgeous.

southeastdweller Sat 26-Mar-16 13:33:35

2.5 years? shock

Holly is beyond annoying with her predictable story and that voice. Does anyone know if she's on it for a short time?

I don't like the Zac and Joanie story. I know affairs happen all the time but this story just doesn't ring true.

Avid Emmerdale fan here new to the thread so it may move a bit more quickly with me finally participating grin

dontaskdonttell Sat 26-Mar-16 13:37:54

I agree with so much of what is being said on this thread. But I must admit I quite like Robert now and think he has genuine feelings for Aaron and i want to see them get together!!

Yes yes to the zac and Joanie storyline, really lost interest in that and I think it's crap and should never have happened.

RudeElf yes! Her hair is amazing and I like the storyline of her and Andy!

Abominablebride Sat 26-Mar-16 14:24:09

Yep that's what I think dontask, he genuinely loves Aaron and no longer afraid to show it. I am a bit of Robert fan wink

Agree the Joanie and Zak storyline needs wrapping up he belongs with Lisa. Didn't mind Joanie up until this point

Savagebeauty Sat 26-Mar-16 14:29:03

Paddy has to be the world's worst actor. No expression. It must have been like shagging Humpty Dumpty.

Lisa is the most depressing woman. I want to cut her hair grin

Rachel0Greep Sat 26-Mar-16 14:34:50

Yeay, shiny new thread grin

Agree re Holly, yawwwwwn. And the writers need to stop the old nonsense of care stealing and so forth. I like Charity, but they really have to give her different storylines now, please!

dontaskdonttell Sat 26-Mar-16 14:39:34

Rachel totally agree about the car stealing storylines and charity, she's become just a joke character to me and I don't like her at all. I find her boring to watch because it's so repetitive.

Savage paddy is bad but marlon is worse! I can't stand him!!

Overall i do enjoy emmerdale but it does feel like an overhaul of storylines is needed, it's all a bit samey, affairs, car stealing, someone dies, charity is on the rob, Marlon is still daft. It really needs a change! Although, the Ashley storyline is interesting and so so sad

RudeElf Sat 26-Mar-16 15:34:29

I really hope they do the ashley storyline justice. I have a feeling they will use it for a big massive shocker episode but I really hope they actually show the reality of dementia and not just use it as a way to write him out quickly.

Griphook Sat 26-Mar-16 17:16:37

The Ashley story line is very good, and he will be missed in the long run as he's a good actor and has quite grounded storylines.

Zac dingle and the hussy is really annoying and I can't really see the point.
Charity should have a Healh crisis as all get story lines are the same

ellenanora5 Sat 26-Mar-16 19:16:33

Hi all, wipes dust from old thread off and settles in grin

Thanks for new thread 70isalimit

smile

CaptainHammer Sun 27-Mar-16 17:48:28

The Ashley story is so sad.

I really wish Charity hadn't come back, such an irritating character!

I'm sure I read recently that David will be diagnosed with testicular cancer? Maybe Eric will be ok but it'll jog David in to getting checked out or something?

southeastdweller Sun 27-Mar-16 22:32:11

Charity is a tired character, much like Tracey Barlow in Corrie, and like Tracey, she's caused so much pain and misery for years yet everyone tolerates her.

hairymelonwalton Mon 28-Mar-16 17:45:35

some of the actors are passed their sell by date, paddy with is columbo acting turns to walk away and then then turns back to ask another question
charity always trying to rip someone off - boring and hollys voice, she sounds like a child , the other sister would of been better with a brand new never been used before story line

Rachel0Greep Thu 31-Mar-16 19:40:14

Holly is dreadful. Why on earth did they bring her back hmm?

"Are they stolen"?

"No, I had an Argos voucher" grin

Rachel0Greep Thu 31-Mar-16 21:31:47

^^ Love Cain grin

KenDoddsDadsDog Thu 31-Mar-16 21:35:13

Cain was mint tonight !

SlatternIsTrying Thu 31-Mar-16 22:15:13

I too sniggered at the Argos voucher line grin.

I also sniggered at Lisa looking at flats in Robblesfield - we all know that everyone in Emmerdale lives in ......... Emmerdale.

Dear writers, I understand Holly going gogo eyes over Cain, but please please do not let it be reciprocated.

Rachel0Greep Thu 31-Mar-16 22:23:00

Even though I'm tired of Ross and Charity stealing and so on, I did like the line Ross had ...'nearly drove me and my...<pause>...elderly mother off the road' grin.

RudeElf Thu 31-Mar-16 23:02:03

I love both ross and cain. I love that they hate each other grin

Does anyone else find Belle unlikeable?

ellenanora5 Thu 31-Mar-16 23:51:50

Yep, I do RudeElf, can't stand her, she's so moody and all about her, everything centres around Belle.

If they go down that road with Holly and Cain I will never watch again, he is Moiras man and no one else's!!!
