The woman in love with Masood...wtf? How has this happened in five minutes flat..?

It is odd

chickydoo Tue 05-Feb-13 19:47:31

She is supposed to be only around 19-20 yrs old, she looks 35.
All very odd

SoleSource Tue 05-Feb-13 19:49:34

Zanaib is supposed to be leaving, I think.. Maybe she has asked to.leave with short notice to script writers.

blueraincoat Tue 05-Feb-13 19:49:46

Agreed, very odd her twisting things.

SoleSource Tue 05-Feb-13 19:51:31

What happened to Max's mush?

celebmum Tue 05-Feb-13 19:56:09

max's wife (kirsty?) 's brother and drunk/drugged up mate beat him up.

blueraincoat Tue 05-Feb-13 19:56:13

According to mother (I missed an episode) He went looking for Kirsty, found her at this house with this guy who beats her, Max went for him and guy beat Max up. Feel free to correct anyone who actually saw it.

MumOfAPickle Tue 05-Feb-13 19:56:43

She is 34! I made dh imdb it because I was so sure she was in her 30's & yet they seem to be portraying her as young. She's stunning but clearly over 30! But yes, agreed, very odd.

Ha! Watching after pausing it, married before you were born my arse! Mind you how old's Syed supposed to be?

qazxc Tue 05-Feb-13 19:58:13

I am very worried. Oscar seemed to have disappeared and nobody has noticed. bad enough that nobody brings their seemingly mute child (ie oscar, amy, masood and zainabs DS) to doctors, but now oscar has seemingly vanished and there is no mention of him. He's not at Dots, Tanya never mentioned that she was taking him with her, and max doesn't have him either. If tanya has him and has done a flit without even telling max is that not kidnapping? should he not be more concerned?

Calls child protection services about missing kidz

Bakingnovice Tue 05-Feb-13 20:11:25

Yes the girl at masoods is in her 30's. Saw her in something years ago. The Botox, lip enhances and nose job have done wonders! She used to look v different. This storyline is so silly. A young (but really much older) young virgin (who speaks in sex voice and walks around in towel to seduce old fat postman) arrives to find suitor. Also, she's meant to be a terrible cook but last week she whipped up samosas for lunch in the morning for mas. Anyone who has ever made samosas knows they take blimmin hours to make!!

SoleSource Tue 05-Feb-13 20:56:21

MumOfAPickle Tue 05-Feb-13 23:09:08

Yy to poor mute Oscar! He's the same age as my ds & I have never known such a silent 5 yr old. Did you see when it was his birthday? Poor little bugger got sent upstairs as per so they could all row

Bakingnovice Wed 06-Feb-13 08:39:42

And poor kamil. Where the hell is he? He's never at the dinner table. Zainab and Tanya swan around the square as if childless.

MrsBucketxx Wed 06-Feb-13 08:50:12

I think its odd that ray is supposed to be morgans dad and he ignores him totally.

oscar has gone with tanya cora mentioned it during a fight with max.

tanya is not seeing she is at fault with max, she told him to bugger off which he did, he met someone else (got married) then she clicks her fingers and gets him back, poor kirsty get ditched. when his wife finds him she gets rid of her, max is truthfull about his feelings and tells him to bugger off again, stupid cow.

TitHead Wed 06-Feb-13 09:53:15

So glad it's not just me that isn't getting the whole poor Tanya story line Bucket I hope max and kirsty stay together. I'm a bit bored of the Max and Tanya thing now.

Hammy02 Wed 06-Feb-13 11:00:50

I was in the same year at school as the girl that plays Ayesha. She is 38.

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Wed 06-Feb-13 11:01:37

Total random fact my DP just told me - did you know that Mo is Gary Oldman's sister shock

hattymattie Wed 06-Feb-13 11:40:43

Yup - I spend my time trying to spot the resemblance between Mo and Gary grin.

As for Max and Tanya - I think if I was Max the fact that she once tried to bury me alive would have been a deal breaker. I do actually feel sorry for Kirsty and she is the wronged party in all this - so I don't know why they are all being so mean to her - although I can't get past her lip!

HazeltheMcWitch Wed 06-Feb-13 11:55:37

OMG, the Ayesha thing is so odd. She arrives to her 'uncle'/'aunt', to find a match, so she's obviously fairly devout. Get she prowls around like the minxiest thing ever to walk the Square. And talks to Zeinab like she's a veteran of LOVE WARS. And the cooking thing, I noticed that samosa thing also. And why does Z not just threaten to call Ayesha's mother, as surely the shame would make her chill her boots a bit.
And MAsood - yes he is very very lovely, but I don't buy it. She could have anyone.

Hammy - is she really 38? Cripes!

ohthedandy Wed 06-Feb-13 12:48:39

Yes, being buried alive would be a deal breaker for me!

I am mostly confused at the moment by the character of Ava. Wasn't she a headmistress at a primary school that Tanya pretended to be interested in for Oscar? She pops up now talking to her son Dexter in a most unheadmisstressy way - has she lost her job (and her accent/demeanour/tailored suit)?!

Tommy Wed 06-Feb-13 12:53:42

I thought it was just me who was confused grin

Hammy02 Wed 06-Feb-13 13:17:54

She could be 37 at the very youngest but as I'm 38, no younger than that. She was beautiful at school & I don't think she's had any cosmetic work done.

SoleSource Wed 06-Feb-13 13:20:52

I thought she was about 42 and had had lots of plastic surgery.

LovesGSD Wed 06-Feb-13 13:41:19

Ayesha doesn't look like she's had work done, Kirsty on the other hand ....

SoleSource Wed 06-Feb-13 13:43:52

Denise looks fab.

Wonder if.Ian will make his move on her..

Bakingnovice Wed 06-Feb-13 14:23:10

Yes yes. Lots of these points were made in the Kirsty thread! Ayesha has had work, I think I saw her in a saddam series on bbc2 years ago. Looked different and was playing a 30 something daughter then. So many inconsistencies with this story.

Tanya - really can't stand this character. The acting is terrible. Stale. Not surprised as she's had the same storyline on repeat for years. Go away Tanya and dong come back trying to look glamorous. She was the one who kicked him out and then demanded the troof. She's forever swanning off leaving the kids and the business. As if.

MrsBucketxx Wed 06-Feb-13 14:24:57

id live to know how Denise works out, she has a killer body. strong and sleek.

Bakingnovice Wed 06-Feb-13 23:33:05

She's a fab actress too. Can do comedy and emotion equally well.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 07-Feb-13 07:22:23

All children are left alone to play on eastenders esp when parents are in the pub

Isn't the girl the neice who has fAllen in love with postie - plus surely her upbringing wouldn't have her trying to seduce m - who I can't beleive is still with z as she is so catty - plus He an affair with Ian's wife so he must be sex on legs lol

Kirsty needs her roots done. Look awful !!

And why has LUCY found a lump? Ee did breast cancer with TANYA

MrsBucketxx Thu 07-Feb-13 07:29:42

tanya had cervical cancer,

peggy mitchell had breast cancer twice and a mastectomy.

I missed a few episodes. Is Tanya gone now? I think zainab leaves on Friday. The preview of it looks good but sad.

MrsBucketxx Thu 07-Feb-13 07:43:33

tanya has gone for now but she is back next week,

cat and alfie share a night together next week too.

Dillydollydaydream Thu 07-Feb-13 09:44:34

I thought Ayesha looked loads older than early 20's, pretty good for a 38yr old.
Where has Tanya gone, won't he get in trouble for unauthorised absence for removing Oscar from school?

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 07-Feb-13 14:01:30

rufussmum Thu 07-Feb-13 16:09:05

I just wondered...why do all the women in EE, not spring chickens either, think that waist-length blonde hair extensions are a good look?
Also, perhaps the Kirsty character's upper lip is make-up - like she is supposed to look like a woman who has had lip fillers?
How does Phil look after Lexi? He is a moron with proven child-abusing behaviour.
Why is Kat cut off with no money when she was partners in the pub?
How come Lauren has money for booze etc but no-one expects her to work/go to school/college.
My name is rufussmum and I am an EEcoholic. Obvs.

SoleSource Thu 07-Feb-13 16:23:15

My lip fillers are very subtle.

MrsBucketxx Thu 07-Feb-13 16:31:34

yeah and Biancas always skint when she would get Income support, housing benefit, and child benefit for all those kids.

rufussmum Thu 07-Feb-13 17:41:27

...and Bianca's always got lots of new clothes.
And why has Whit put on so much weight? Is she preg?

drwitch Thu 07-Feb-13 17:47:19

Whit has not put on any weight (unless you count the fake tan), but the characters of the same age (lauren, lucy) are now super skinny. - why have they made her into a low rent katie price though?

DebbiesDoubleDees Thu 07-Feb-13 18:04:20

Maybe the lump Lucy has found is her actual boob. She is so stick thin.
Whit looks awful, trashy.
Yay Zainab is leaving. Whoopie. Miserable, sanctimonious cow!
Phil looking after Lexi is ridiculous.
Why did Abs dye her ginger hair? Blonde hair with ginger roots is not a good look.

SoleSource Thu 07-Feb-13 18:08:58

Debbie Roarrrrr

Bakingnovice Thu 07-Feb-13 18:26:58

Haha. Yes, I'm shocked no one has told the blondies how terrible they look. BlOnde extensions in 40 plus ladies is not a good look at all. Can't stand Zainab. Such contrived acting, hope she doesn't come back. Whit hasn't put weight on, she just looks bigger cos the other girls are ex models and v v thin. I don't like Lauren either. Why do ee always do this. They build up a story for months then it goes nowhere. Lauren Abd joey build up was huge and now it's just nothing.

My whys are as follows:
Why does jack want blazer backed Sharon? I mean WHY????
Why did fifty quid buy bianca and Kat a stall with stock??
Why has roxy shaved her brows and tattooed then back on?
Why has abi been doing exams for the last ten years?
Why does anyone stay at the b&b?
Why aren't social making plans for lexi to be back with Lola now there is no criminal case?
Why does Denny have the kind of face you'd love to slap?
Why does whit insist on reminding every fella she's 'just an ol tart'??

I'll stop now.

rufussmum Thu 07-Feb-13 18:55:30

Why do I fancy Michael?

BeaWheesht Thu 07-Feb-13 20:05:15

I'm glad I found this thread - I missed it for a few episodes and thought I must've forgotten some vital part of massood and ayesha's storyline.

I totally fancy massood

HeavenlyAmy Thu 07-Feb-13 20:07:10

Why don't they have a proper counselling 'fix-it' type story-line. Show people how things can be worked out.

LineRunner Thu 07-Feb-13 20:21:11

I thought that episode - the one just on - was bloody surreal. And not in a good way.

Nice in-joke, though from a scripwriter. Masood: 'I don't think we've ever had our four children in the same room together.'

SoleSource Thu 07-Feb-13 20:37:14

Poor Zanaib. Where will she go?

Tomorrow I.shall get the tissues ready and order the black cab.

rufussmum Thu 07-Feb-13 20:54:53

Zanaib will disappear to the Land Far, Far Away where all the characters flee to in times of trauma. Everyone leaves the Square in a cab with one suitcase, no money, in tears and with nowhere to go except Abroad. There must be a whole ex-pat community of exiled EE characters somewhere. They could make a separate series - like Benidorm - full of Peggies, Grants and Staceys.

LineRunner Thu 07-Feb-13 21:08:13

Kathy snuffed it Abroad, though. It can be a dangerous place where actors get Ideas Above Their Acting Abilities and attempt entry into another series.

HazeltheMcWitch Thu 07-Feb-13 21:13:41

Kathy's off to Hollyoaks. With Daniella Westbrook.

rufussmum Thu 07-Feb-13 21:19:00

Who nose?

NoelHeadbands Thu 07-Feb-13 21:58:47

I've absolutely hated this Masoods storyline, hated it. Ayesha was just woeful.

My EE musings ....

I think Kirsty is very pretty, I like her slatternly look (on her that is- my style is very different)
AJ is also quite pretty
Sharon's hair is 'stiffening' into a weird Thatcher/ extensions combo. I think it will shortly be making a bid for its own spin off series.
Please can Kat & Alfie go again now? Please? Just BORE OFF
Denise is FAB, I think she plays such a good part
Max can fuck orf now as well
I really like Roxy's jeans


Bakingnovice Thu 07-Feb-13 22:27:12

Rufussmum v funny. You are right, there should be a show for expat eastenders abroad. So far we have the following abroad: Michelle , grant, Peggy, stacy and her kid.

Noel - Sharon's hair is very stiff. She seriously needs a makeover man. Get rid of the wig, the blazers, the stilettos and Denny. I might like her more then. I've never known anyone to have such a big back.

Oh and what is it about Michael. I have gone from intense hatred to quite liking him. Would love to see him and alice together.

chickydoo Thu 07-Feb-13 22:45:00

What I want to know is who in EE has grey hair???
Alfie obviously ... But tonight it was orange.
Kat's is so black it looks daft, mind you I guess she can share hair dye with Whit ( although I guess Whit's not grey..yet)
All the Blondies must share a stylist.
Sharon, Tan, Abby, Cora's crows nest, Roxy & Max's wife ( forget her name) it's all too much!!!
Even the delightful Dot well in to her 80's is still sporting auburn locks.
In RL, at least one or two would dare to go grey.
Just musing.

NoelHeadbands Thu 07-Feb-13 23:15:34

Yay to the grey hair- last seen on....Ethel perhaps? ...confused

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 08-Feb-13 06:02:46

Lexis christening - aren't god parents actually meant to be there?

Or grant

Everyone goes to Manchester smile or abroad - never to be seen again ...,,,

All the girls seem to have false nails - where do they get the money from? All apart from Whitney are too skinny - not good role models tbh sad

Masood was funny saying that about his 4 kid - so true though. Even when we saw their youngest having a milkshake with big bruv he barely said a word

Kirsty's hair is just rank. As are Sharon's extensions

Is there a happy marriage / relationship ANYWHERE in ee where they haven't been unfaithful?

MrsBucketxx Fri 08-Feb-13 07:24:02

theres a new family ariving soon.

they better make sure they leave their car and washing machine behind.

rufussmum Fri 08-Feb-13 08:11:35

Blondeshav... you missing the point. All this unfathfulness/interbreeding is necessary cos EE is in fact a huge State-controlled experiment in genetics, taking place right under our noses and disguised as populist TV.
In time everyone on EE will be related to everyone else, live in the same house/launderette/cafe/pub combo and employ each other. They will evolve into one giant blonde, broad-backed organism, neither male nor female, which is capable of argueing/shagging with itself.
You mark my words. Big Brother is out there.

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 08-Feb-13 08:17:17

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 08-Feb-13 09:47:33

The new family should be an ordinary one. They shouldn't have links to three other families in the square, they shouldn't know anyone already, they should shop in a real supermarket and eat breakfast at home rather than the caff, and they should have jobs that would mean they really could afford a big house so close to central London.

They should be astonished that all their neighbours seem to know each other / be related / work within a quarter mile radius.

SoleSource Fri 08-Feb-13 12:18:44

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 08-Feb-13 18:31:28

In Dawson's Creek, Michelle Williams had no neck.
She seems to have grown one now, so maybe there is some hope for Sharon?

NoelHeadbands Fri 08-Feb-13 18:55:26

Perhaps it's just the weight of the Thatcher extensions, drilling her poor bonce down into her body. Her chin may disappear into her collarbone soon

SoleSource Fri 08-Feb-13 21:28:10

good question Nancy

NoelHeadbands Fri 08-Feb-13 21:30:10

I've heard it before, I think it's quite common to use gee (sp?) on the end of Aunty/uncle etc as a sign of respect.

I had a little something in my eye. I actually think Massood is quite fanciable too...

Auntiji, Uncleji..it's an endearment I think, took me a while to work out.

Also he is Masood but her second name is Masood. So what is his second name? Or does he have a first one I missed?

This is important, I missed lots as I stopped watching EE after the whole cot death thing, couldn't watch as had just had DD.

Tis totally ridiculous though, I miss one episode and I have no idea what is happening.

Isn't it Masood Ahmed?

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 08-Feb-13 22:29:05

Ji is a Hindu word, that shows respect to people. So you'd often use it after Auntie/Uncle (which are often used for neighbours, parents' friends etc).

But Auntyji can also be used in a pejorative, mocking way, to subtley suggest that someone is older that you, and a bit out of date.

I have the ep on Sky+, so I will be sure to watch it when no one can laugh at my blubbing.

Bakingnovice Fri 08-Feb-13 23:31:07

Oh bore off Zainab.

I agree with Noel. Sharon has great legs. Bit like a chicken. Skinny legs and massive body. And surprisingly big face too. Well spotted re the no neck thing. I'd whip off her wig and give her a sleek bob back in her natural brown shade. Ethel was not the last grey one, didn't she dye (good pun right?) with a fresh blue rinse??

Alfie looks ridic with his hair. Is it dye or a wig. Roxy is bile. Oops typo but it works. She is bile and vile. She snares men who don't really want her.

Why the hell is headmistress Ava always stomping around the flipping square? Bizarre.

Two v disturbing comments I will address:
No, no , no. No one can possible miss Derek. We hate him right?
Masood Masood - please ladies. Please please please. Stop fawning he is not fanciable. The newly dyed hair and new burton chunky knit cardies might have ensnared young old Ayesha but not us. He is an old boring fat postman, with bulbous eyes.

I've got tears in my eyes laughing. Noel you are hilarious. Did anyone notice that when Ayesha left it was in the slowest moving taxi ever? It felt like Masood stood staring at her for a good 5 mins grin

Well thank the lord Z finally gone - terrible acting recently & totally unbelievable story line with the Ayesha girl. Boring boring boring.

Let's see more of Michael, Jean, Lola, Denise & Kim. Oh and lovely FatBoy & Poppy, and the fabulous Kirsty.

Let's see some properly interesting story lines that actually go sonewhere (somebody mentioned this, upthread) and not just couples splitting up/reuniting/splitting up/reuniting a la Max & Tanya, Alfie & Kat, Masood & Zainab.

A new family would be very welcome - which house are they moving into?

PaintedBottom Sat 09-Feb-13 11:14:15

I've gone right off Eastenders recently but keep watching it hmm but I did have something rather large in my eye at last night's episode....HATE Zainab's character, but it was still sad, probably because of little Kamil. What was the point in Ayesha please?

I agree with you NotQuitePerfect, I love "Fatty Boy" (the single, funniest thing Zainab has ever said) and really think he needs a proper story line. We've seen hints that he's had family problems in the past and he has potential to play a more serious role. Would be interesting to see.

PaintedBottom Sat 09-Feb-13 11:20:39

Oh I just wanted to add some useless information......did you know that in real life, Roxy's uncle is Alan Sugar? True story.

LineRunner Sat 09-Feb-13 13:26:05

MooMooSkit Sat 09-Feb-13 14:47:01

I can't stand Michael Moon. I'd like to see Kirsty used more as she was so great in the Take.

Again, they could of got rid of rotten roxy when Ronnie went. She is an awful character that just spends her time moping after men that don't want her.

masood names is masood ahmed isn't it ? I did cry last night I thought the break up was heartbreaking they both just knew <sob> was very emotional

mrsjay Sat 09-Feb-13 20:48:53

presume Zainab has gone to stay with the mysterious absent daughter.

I think she went to pakistan to see her mother I think her Daughter is working there or 'something'

NoelHeadbands Sat 09-Feb-13 20:52:01

Joey is a terrible actor. But he's so pretty. And Jack is awful (and I still giggle when I remember him fluffing his lines in the live episode)

Tyler has suddenly seemed to develop a bit of a speech impediment. Got a Peter Beale 'awight tweacle' thing going on that I'm sure he hasn't always had?

mrsjay Sat 09-Feb-13 21:02:06

Joey looks like all the other misunderstood badboys on enders, I thought it was dennis rickman the return when I first saw him

mrsjay Sat 09-Feb-13 21:03:05

Tyler has suddenly seemed to develop a bit of a speech impediment. Got a Peter Beale 'awight tweacle' thing going on that I'm sure he hasn't always had?

Randim fact number 2 Big Mo is Gary Oldmans sister (i think).

Felt sorry for Tamwar and Kamil being separated, he was his main carer. I am not seeing the Masood thing, I know I should, but I just cant.

Roxy needs to leave, she should be larging it in Ibeefa by now. Sharon needs to ditch Jack and jump on budget Dennis lookalike Joey, i'm suprised she hasnt allready gone all misty eyed and done the "you remind me of someone special, someone I lost, so long ago...." line. Forget Joey and Lauren, Lauren has pretty much slept with every teenage male on the square, she has to come out as a lesbian this year. Plus Steven Wicks will return and set up home at the Vic with Ben Mitchell before a teenage George returns to wreak revenge on his mothers murderer. I've got it all planned.

MrsBucketxx Mon 11-Feb-13 07:33:28

I'm not ashamed to admit it I did cry a bit at fridays episode, although it was odd asshe fidnt say goodbye to denise who was right across the street and they are meant to be best friends.

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Mon 11-Feb-13 07:43:19

I haven't watched for a while but saw it this week.

Can any of you clever people tell me where Tamwar's wife is?!

MrsBucketxx Mon 11-Feb-13 07:48:59

she left to go travelling after her dad died, wanted to see the world and go on adventures and tamwar didn't.

Loving your future plot lines sinister!

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Mon 11-Feb-13 09:16:18

Thank you MrsBucketxx

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 11-Feb-13 09:35:40

am i the only one who didnt find the goodbye scenes sad?

glad to get rid of the moaning old bag tbh

but dont see the attraction with masood

Bakingnovice Mon 11-Feb-13 09:47:14

Sinister love the plots.

Lauren is dire. As is Lucy. Really hope there isn't another cancer storyline. Tanya's was bad enough, and it's the same plot with Lucy keeping it hidden from her fam like Tanya did. Hated the Tanya cancer storyline. Her acting, the hidden element and then the super super fast resolution. Really liking Kirsty being back.

mrsjay Mon 11-Feb-13 09:53:03

I hate Lauren and her moany face she does my head in and Lucy beale is far to posh to be Ians daughter

YouOldSlag Mon 11-Feb-13 10:03:13

I think the Zainab exit would have had more impact if she hadn't done the same thing last October.

I think the point of Ayesha was to make Masood feel appreciated and illuminate the contrast between that and how Zainab completely takes him for granted. if she hadn't come along, he would have "settled" for his henpecked existence with Z, never realising he could actually be happy.

I must say whenever Kirsty is in a scene I can't take my eyes off her. She is such a well written and well acted character- hard on the outside, vulnerable on the inside. She has kind of made me swap loyalties now. Bugger off Tanya!

YouOldSlag Mon 11-Feb-13 14:33:52

Oh and it's so obvious that brought back Sharon and then have no idea what to do with her. That pill addict storyline fizzled out and was unbelievable anyway and since then she has been Tanya's mate.

I'd like to see Sharon come into money and be a bit of a businesswoman, buy back the Vic, fight Janine about everything and generally become a viewer's favourite.

She could be a legend but she's just like an extra with dialogue right now.

Without Zainab, the square needs another strong dominant woman.

LineRunner Mon 11-Feb-13 17:02:02

And I am very, very bored of Whitney and her tedious engagement.

Jellykat Mon 11-Feb-13 17:59:54

Whitney seems to have discovered the can of spray tan lately, soo not a good look!
Shes leaving soon anyway, to pursue a singing career apparently hmm

rufussmum Mon 11-Feb-13 20:56:19

Whit's Cuprinol tan is nowhere as weird as Lolo who looks as though she's been dip-dyed in henna. How come these people live in a flithy inner-London hell-hole where the sun don't shine yet they think deep tan is a good look. Salon tans cost money and they're all skint so why the colour?
Also, I hate Tanwar - he is such a negative, miserable little sod. No wonder his wife cleared off.
All the strong women get put in their place sooner or later by useless men.

rufussmum Mon 11-Feb-13 20:56:40


Bakingnovice Mon 11-Feb-13 21:18:04

I find the Sharon jack storyline silly. As if jack would go for Sharon.

Tamwar is a miserable get, but I do quite like his character. Can't stand AJ though. I mean he must be nearly 40 and he walks around with one earphone in. EE start storylines which then amount to nothing. Sharon and the pills, coras daughter Ava, Kat and Alfie, Lauren and joey. They start off massive and then peter out to nothingness.

WipsGlitter Mon 11-Feb-13 21:22:35

AJ is a total non character. Me and DP are always saying there's no way Sharon would get a man like Jack. And engaged already. Sheesh.

Jellykat Mon 11-Feb-13 21:47:20

I hate to say it, but Sharon looks like an unattractive drag queen.

MrsBucketxx Tue 12-Feb-13 07:25:52

some weight loss would work wonders for sharon less back to look at.

the hair dye thing made me laugh too, if it was bleech the colour may have looked pink but would have been ok anyway.

MrsBucketxx Tue 12-Feb-13 08:41:49

Me and DP are always saying there's no way Sharon would get a man like Jack. And engaged already. Sheesh.

they just look daft together and her simpering over denny stopped suddenly when lola was on the scene before that she wouldn't stop ruffiling his hair,

YouOldSlag Tue 12-Feb-13 09:24:34

Are they going to use the most obvious plot with Sharon? That she finds out Phil was responsible for Dennis' death?

I'll never forget that Nigel Harman had one of best lines ever in EE.

Sharon:"I've just bitten Pauline's head off"
Dennis "Don't worry, she'll grow a new one"

Arf grin thanks YouOldSlag

SoleSource Tue 12-Feb-13 19:44:45

mrsbucket you're right about carol and masood!

I'd like to know why tamwar is still in EE, he is such an incredibly miserable character. He really winds me up for some reason, hope it's not that I'm actually secretly in love with him shock!

YouOldSlag Tue 12-Feb-13 21:12:38

I love Tamwar, he has some killer one liners- his wit is dry as a bone! I want to see him in love and happy, instead of all sad.

mrsjay Wed 13-Feb-13 08:42:05

I think Alfie has taken over as tommys dad would you want michael moon to be you sons dad <shudder> I think kat and alfie need to divorce she is toxic, I hate him with roxy though she is a PITA.

I reckon Carol will make a bit of a prat of herself over Masood, but will end up with the Probation Officer bloke. The "shower" exchange was definitely to set things up.

EllieArroway Wed 13-Feb-13 08:54:55

Yeah, me too, Mrsjay. And if Masood didn't want me (highly unlikely wink) I'd happily settle for AJ.

mrsjay Wed 13-Feb-13 09:00:17

Yeah, me too, Mrsjay. And if Masood didn't want me (highly unlikely ) I'd happily settle for AJ.

oh i quite like AJ too i have seen him in something else but cant think what and he is a naughty muslim we could have a pint or 2 grin

mrsjay Wed 13-Feb-13 09:01:16

the actor who plays mas was on the one show last year Alex jones nearly slid off her seat she was simpering and batting her eyes at him was amusing to watch

Bakingnovice Wed 13-Feb-13 09:40:49

What is the MN obsession with Masood? I never ever thought anyone would find him attractive but there's always mnetters who like him. Can anyone explain the attraction.

The Lola/lexi/ Phil storyline is one of the vilest most repugnant storylines ever.

mrsjay Wed 13-Feb-13 09:42:15

What is the MN obsession with Masood? I never ever thought anyone would find him attractive but there's always mnetters who like him. Can anyone explain the attraction.

I know non mumsnetters who like him he is just really lovely with twinkley eyes sigh

mrsjay Wed 13-Feb-13 09:43:26

saying all that I dont 'get' the max branning thing he is vile and sleazy some MNetter really go for that grin

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Wed 13-Feb-13 10:02:38

mrsjay Wed 13-Feb-13 10:05:56

mrsjay you are right he is vile and sleazy but i so would

see point proved I dont see it he has cheated on his wife many many times has had a secret wife but yet women would just drag him to bed confused

YouOldSlag Wed 13-Feb-13 12:15:16

Totally love Masood. He is a complex character, very lovely, eyes like huge pools, very human and apparently lovely in RL too.

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Wed 13-Feb-13 13:38:02

I know, i know mrsjay the character is a complete and utter wanker, but still i would!

I have to say i didn't realise he was a popular choice, all of my friends are shock when i tell them, they don't understand it either!

Liam is rather handsome these days.

Oh fgs Bianca go to the jobcentre and sign on.

Bakingnovice Wed 13-Feb-13 18:49:09

Yes massif is a great character. Full Of warmth and kindness. His acting when Zainab left was brilliant. Zainab ruined it with her whimpering and down turned mouth. I am really glad she's gone. Her acting is terrible. Tamwar and Masood far put acted Zainab. I was waiting for the lump in throat moment but there was none.

And why do soap characters never have family accompany them to the airport? ?

NoelHeadbands Wed 13-Feb-13 19:16:00

Ha I laughed at the turned down mouth grin

It's like she thought 'what shall I do to make me look sad...sad face...sad face...hmmm....I KNOW!'

Bakingnovice Wed 13-Feb-13 22:42:47

She left in a bit of a hurry. Maybe that's why here exit was appallingly bad. The two episodes were bizarre. Her and mas going over the past, cleaning the house, ending it. One minute happy in each others arms then sad. I'd rather there was a big argument. Also, the fact she's left and they've ended it at least ten times before lessened the impact of her going. They should've killed her off. Tanya's story is the same. Forever going off until one day none of viewers care any more.

LineRunner Wed 13-Feb-13 22:55:48

I completely agree, Baking. No-one cares any more.

And in the actual plot and cast, the people who should care - their children, eg - don't seem to have any money worries as a result, which is mad, as these mothers had jobs ffs.

Mothers are written very badly in EE.

RedPencils Wed 13-Feb-13 23:08:40

Zainab leaving was ridiculous, as was Tanya. Felt like they used the same script for both but with the names changed.
And why isn't max living in his own house? Wtf has it got to do with Cora? And while I'm here can I just say 'Kirsty, get you bloody roots done love' and Sharon, give it a rest with the off the shoulder tops. You can almost see your nipples.

MrsBucketxx Thu 14-Feb-13 07:28:57

tanya is comming back though, so she hasn't left really just had a break.

kirstys hair is like a birds nest its like she can't see how bad it is.

RedPencils Thu 14-Feb-13 08:25:59

Tanya's coming back? They need to dust off the 'will she/won't she/course she will' get back together with max script then.

mrsjay Thu 14-Feb-13 08:26:18

Sharon, give it a rest with the off the shoulder tops. You can almost see your nipples.

I hate those tops I want to shout sharon the 80s want their clothes back

Bakingnovice Thu 14-Feb-13 09:14:03

Every time Kirsty is on screen I am mesmerised by her hair and lips. I can't stop gawping. But even with these ridic flaws shf is much more attractive than Tanya. If people want to spend more time with their kids ee should just let them leave. Especially Tanya cos all she does is fight with max, go away, come back, sleep with max, fight with max.... It's so tedious.

Wish they'd do a storyline with fatboy. He's brilliant. Love that he's a funny character but often shows his sensitive and caring side.

januaryjojo Thu 14-Feb-13 09:36:56


It isn't Maxs' house though.

It was sold because he got into debt, Jack bought it and rents it to Tanya.

Supposedly. hmm

hattymattie Thu 14-Feb-13 09:43:14

The Tamwar story is completely ridiculous - he was Oxbridge level so he could have gone to one of his other 4 choices of university instead of moping round the house like a dead duck for 2 years. I know it's EE but I dearly would like some people to succeed from time to time and the Tamwar/Libby university thing was good. Tamwar should go off to business school or something and come back as great business man.

mrsjay Thu 14-Feb-13 09:46:47

I think he failed his exams at school ( is that not right)

mrsjay Thu 14-Feb-13 09:48:18

Wish they'd do a storyline with fatboy. He's brilliant. Love that he's a funny character but often shows his sensitive and caring side.

I love fatty boy he is so sweet, I like how he is just there I don't think he needs a big story atm there was his drunk dad last year but I like how he is just a nice running character

RedPencils Thu 14-Feb-13 09:48:22

Oh right - I'd forgotten about that! Even more reason for Max to move in -its his brother's house!

drwitch Thu 14-Feb-13 10:02:03

Tam could probably get a grant for his living costs and it is clearly is all their interests for him to take out the student loan. The fact that he is not will further emphasise the feeling that uni is for the rich. makes me very cross

MrsBucketxx Thu 14-Feb-13 10:06:59

but he doesn't want the debt rpund his neck which is very sensible to me.

student debt is still debt, its doesn't just vanish.

drwitch Thu 14-Feb-13 10:11:32

you only start paying it back once your salary reaches £21,000 and any amount that you have left over after 20 years gets written off. so its not like a mortgate or credit card debt, honestly the best way to think about it is that after uni you will have to pay a higher rate of tax

bleedingheart Thu 14-Feb-13 10:14:20

I hate that Libby and Chelsea never visit. They could write it so it has happened ''off camera." Denise has been through do much and was a tigress for her children, they wouldn't just abandon her.
Best actors in the show are Max and Denise.

The Roxy/Alfie/Kat storyline is ridiculous. Hate the way Kirsty walked into a bar job when they were struggling to turn a profit!

hattymattie Thu 14-Feb-13 10:18:31

mrsjay thought T had just not got his grades for Oxford - can't imagine he would flunk them entirely but I can't remember and it is EE.

Agree a Fatboy story without him being superficial would be great. I seem to remember he confessed to being quite posh and his accent was put on. So lots of background stuff to explore there.

mrsjay Thu 14-Feb-13 10:19:47

I can't remember either hattie why didnt he go for another uni always baffled me hmm

bleedingheart Thu 14-Feb-13 10:20:07

Zainab exit was very poor too. Poor Kamil taken away from Tamwar, his primary carer!

Sharon and Jack are also out at all hours with no Denny. Ian is sometimes mentioned as babysitting but not every time.

I also don't buy Liam turning on Bianca like that, he knows her struggles and is more likely to earn money to help her not belittle her.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 14-Feb-13 13:04:01

i still dont get why bianca struggles so much - she has 4 kids, morgans father is about, ricky went to earn money abroad- what happened to him?

why doesnt she get benifits like every other parent of 4 kids

RedPencils Thu 14-Feb-13 13:28:16

Ricky went to dubai when she was in jail but predictably lost all of the money he made there. He left in the back of a taxi without much of an explanation (crap exit) and hasn't been spoken of since.

TwllBach Thu 14-Feb-13 21:27:07

I say this on every EE thread - but jay is adorable. I love that he has just turned up with a bin bag full f valentines day stuff (I'm watching on sky plus) even though he's homeless??? He has a million and one more problems than abbey and yet he takes it all.

And if i was Kirsty and max told me he saw a knock off dress on the market and thought of me, I would not be impressed at all grin

TwllBach Thu 14-Feb-13 21:28:17


Why am I not surprised that Abbey has a James Blunt CD?

mrsjay Thu 14-Feb-13 21:30:02

and why isn't abby at school she hasn't been at school since she came back from her eco trip she is always in the caff looking harassed over homework

LemonBreeland Thu 14-Feb-13 21:35:27

EE is really bugging me atm. Roxy/Alfie/Kat, can't be bothered with the whole Kat trying to get him back thing, and Roxy acting like they've been married for years and telling Alfie what to do.

Agree that Zainab leaving was just such an anti-climax.

Tanya buggering off to god knows where any time she gets upset is ridiculous.

Sharon and her 80's tops, eugh, I find her as a character so annoying. Again her and JAck have been togethr for 5 minutes and she is like a nagging wife of ten years. It is so ridiculous.

mrsjay Thu 14-Feb-13 21:40:29

Roxy really bugs me her face annoys me angry

Bakingnovice Thu 14-Feb-13 22:55:24

And how terrible does roxy look now Kirsty is here. Roxys extensions are terrible, as are her drawn brows, and she's become a nag overnight. Bleurghh. I like jay too and I do kinda like Abby although all she does is sit in the caff moaning. In fact everyone is either in the pub, in the caff or having treatments done in the salon. No recession there then.

MrsBucketxx Fri 15-Feb-13 07:55:13

roxy was fun at one time now she is just a moaning old cow.

come on ee, make her likeable again.

TwllBach Fri 15-Feb-13 08:58:37

Maybe roxy is missing Christian? He is literally the only one that didn't use her or choose her as second best.

mrsjay Fri 15-Feb-13 09:00:37

oh maybe but she is a moaning faced moo who jumped on aflie before Kat had shut the door, she is insecure though and forgets she is a 30 something yr old woman and still thinks shes that party girl

YouOldSlag Fri 15-Feb-13 10:44:56

I used to really like Roxy but she is a bitter nasty old cow now, who seems to enjoy humiliating people.

Twll- agree- Jay is adorable and has become one of my favourite characters.

TwllBach Fri 15-Feb-13 11:42:41

What do you think the chances are of the writers letting him and abbey be a success story? She trains to be a vet, he carries on as a mechanic, when they're about 30 they get married and have a baby. That's it.

mrsjay Fri 15-Feb-13 12:51:02

of course they cant be happy Twll dont be daft I am waiting on the lovely poppy and fatty boys romance to go pearshaped just when it is getting nice and cosy grin

TwllBach Fri 15-Feb-13 12:58:16


I'm guessing that abbey will get pregnant. Jay will be delighted and desperate for her to keep it. Abbey will tell Lauren and together they will get an abortion because abbey is not ready. Lauren will persuade abbey not to tell jay because lies are always better and jay has in no way been supportive of abbeys decisions eventually, obviously.

Abbey will say she miscarried, Tanya will come back. Abbey will buckle under the guilt at Christmas and jay will be devastated. Tanya will sleep with max, take Oscar and leave. Again.

LemonBreeland Fri 15-Feb-13 13:08:46

twil it is so sad that that is so likely. Why do I continue to watch.

RedPencils Fri 15-Feb-13 13:14:21

Twll - I'm tempted to print that out and see how right you are at Christmas.

mrsjay Fri 15-Feb-13 13:31:42

you are probably right twll she will get pregnant she will have a termination she will be a disappointment to her family for getting pregnant ( she is the good child) jay will be devastated he wil be desperate to play happy families and he will end up with Lola after realising Abby wont stay forever in albert square . god we can earn loads for script writing

YouOldSlag Fri 15-Feb-13 16:08:28

What soap writers don't realise is that we DO want to see happy marriages, we DO want to see people achieve their dreams and we DO want to see scenes of happiness.

mrsjay Fri 15-Feb-13 16:11:49

yes we do want people to be happy why can't abby marry jay eventually and have cute little babies and she can be a vet and he can take over the arches and just be happy , spose people would moan it was boring

YouOldSlag Fri 15-Feb-13 16:13:02

Like Twll says, i would love for Jay and Abby to be a happy couple. Jay really deserves it too.

TwllBach Fri 15-Feb-13 16:31:20

Jay does deserve it. Abbey does not. She is whingey and holier than thou, but I have a horrible feeling I was quite like her when I was sixteen too, so maybe she does deserve it after all <ties self in knots>

YouOldSlag Fri 15-Feb-13 18:03:27

Yes Twll but I'd be whingeing as well if I had Max for a Dad, Tanya for a Mum, Lauren for a sister and a little brother that neither of my parents ever looked after!

Incidentally, There are never ever any child care problems on EE are they? Sharon is never with Denny, I think Bobby moved out into his flat when he was 4, Oscar is God Knows where, but never with his folks, and when was the last time Roxy was with Amy? people have kids and then carry on their lives as if nothing happened.

RedPencils Fri 15-Feb-13 20:21:34

I loved Bradley and Stacey, I watched the live episode twice hoping he remembered his passport second time round. Why couldn't they just let them leave and be happy ever after.
Jay will probably have a fling with Lola at some point.

MrsBucketxx Sun 17-Feb-13 11:01:15

or lola will have a dna on lexi and find put it was jay all along.

YouOldSlag Sun 17-Feb-13 17:32:51

MrsBucket- it baffles me how they just gave Lexi to ex con Phil with no proof at all that they were even related.

RedPencils Sun 17-Feb-13 21:54:47

I still don't understand what happened with Lola/lexi/phil

Lexi was taken into care because she had nappy rash and they hadnt done the dishes? Good job SS round don't take away dirty kids with lazy arse mothers who leave the breakfast dishes till dinner time blush

And then they give the baby to Phil? Hasn't he been inside for murder?

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 17-Feb-13 22:34:44

I wondered who is having the kids - esp at the valentines ball / hen night conference thingy

Alfie and Roxie were there as was Kat

So who had their boy and Amy

Sharon and jack were there

So again who had amy and Denny

As all parents were getting pissed

Prob dot

YouOldSlag Sun 17-Feb-13 23:13:38

Blonde, it was Emily Bishop from Weatherfield. She has everyone's kids!

MrsBucketxx Mon 18-Feb-13 07:39:54

or its ian whos got them all.

YouOldSlag Mon 18-Feb-13 08:30:54

Yeah, they dump all the kids at Ian's and then they never invite him out.

mrsjay Mon 18-Feb-13 08:31:45

Lexi was taken into care because she had nappy rash and they hadnt done the dishes? Good job SS round don't take away dirty kids with lazy arse mothers who leave the breakfast dishes till dinner time

I dont get that either it made no sense confused and it was poor writing imo

mrsjay Mon 18-Feb-13 08:32:18

I think Jean is the new babysitter she has taken Dots job grin

YouOldSlag Mon 18-Feb-13 08:38:31

Yes it was very poor writing. A few dishes! nappy rash! They didn't even try and be realistic.

Don't get me started on giving a baby to Phil, not a proven relative, an ex con, works almost full time and has a police record as long as your arm. but yeah, that would be better than a loving mother who was so busy looking after her baby that she left the dirty dishes.

mrsjay Mon 18-Feb-13 08:43:31

oh yes lets give a baby to a known criminal with a dodgy past lets do that least it is better than a young mum trying her best angry

SoleSource Mon 18-Feb-13 20:30:32

So glad Alfie got rid of Kat

bleedingheart Mon 18-Feb-13 20:37:37

Kat and Alfie storyline has run its course, they need to end it properly.

They don't know what to do with Phil now do they?

Kirsty is mad at Max so debases herself to prove she's 'not like other women.' Empowering!

RedPencils Mon 18-Feb-13 21:24:55

I can't take Kirsty seriously with that hair.

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 18-Feb-13 23:48:27

Her hair is awful - reminds me of a skunk !!!

Hope Lola gets back her baby soon. Then again who looks after lexi when phil is at the garage and Sharon at the club??

Prob the mystery childcarers

mrsjay Tue 19-Feb-13 08:46:25

I hate Kirsty and max well i hate max he is the sleasiest man ever and her trying to prove she was different to tanya she could keep her man URGH

Glad Alfie is divorcing Kat she doesn't deserve any chances and I am not buying that kat and alfie thing anymore all this ITS US nonsense , Kat shagged derek branning <SHUDDER> WHAT DID SHE EXPECT

Saski Tue 19-Feb-13 09:33:24

Alfie and Roxy have such an amazing future together, their relationship being built on such stable ground and all.

mrsjay Tue 19-Feb-13 09:36:08

their relationship being built on such stable ground and all.

oh aye I agree wink Im sure kat hit roxy on the way out as roxy was moving in she was like a rat up a drain pipe

Saski Tue 19-Feb-13 09:41:00

They've made an obvious attempt to dress Roxy up into Kat's classy alternative. I would like the old Roxy back, please.

bleedingheart Tue 19-Feb-13 10:15:18

I would just like Roxy to have some self-respect

Baby with Jack (knowing he was in love with Ronnie at the time)
Trying to 'turn' Christian
And now moving on to Alfie the day he chucked Kat out

Get some pride woman!

Agree Kirsty's hair is distracting as are the two large spiders she has stuck to her eyelids.

mrsjay Tue 19-Feb-13 10:16:57

yip Roxy needs some pride it is sad really,

I couldnt actually see Kirsty's face for the hair and eyelashes I dont know what she looks like hmm

Saski Tue 19-Feb-13 10:20:08

Kirsty is a hot mess. My husband was all "she's not so bad" as she draped herself across Max's desk last night and I gave him a shove.

Samu2 Tue 19-Feb-13 10:54:08

I have a feeling that Philth is going to do something to stop Lola getting Lexi back. I don't even understand why they took her off her in the first place confused

MrsBucketxx Tue 19-Feb-13 11:39:17

he pisses lola off and she will lose custardy herself.

SoleSource Tue 19-Feb-13 12:14:39

Philth PMSL

LemonBreeland Tue 19-Feb-13 12:20:39

Lola is going to run off with Lexi, not sure why yet, but obviously it is going to screw things up for her.

It really is annoying me now.

The Max and Kirsty thing last night was a joke. DH and I wondered why Max who will shag at the drop of a hat needed to be coerced by Kirstys outfit etc.

cookielove Tue 19-Feb-13 12:47:56

Wow. Love this thread grin

Sharons big back <snort>

I really can't stand Roxy, she is so pointless.

I do love joey he is beautiful smile

hattymattie Tue 19-Feb-13 19:56:52

Gah - Michael's snogging Kat - can't believe it (or maybe I can);

girliefriend Tue 19-Feb-13 20:09:53

Kat is such a slapper!! Although I thought her and Alfie had some weird agreement that she could shag about as long as he didn't know about it <may have imagined that episode!>

Think it is beyond ridiculous that Phil ended up with Lolas baby!! Even by ee standards that is insane confused

mrsjay Tue 19-Feb-13 20:35:44

I think alfie stood the one night stands or something but I think derek branning <heave> was a shag to far, I actually applauded Roxy tonight even though I dont like her that much Kat deserved that, i would never condone real violence obviously grin

mrsjay Tue 19-Feb-13 20:37:15

cheyrl cole Ayesha comes back to spoil the carol and mas romance sad

SinisterBuggyMonth Tue 19-Feb-13 20:46:26

Yes I miss the old Roxy. She needs Sean back.

Samu2 Tue 19-Feb-13 20:46:28

Masood looked gorgeous tonight!

cookielove Tue 19-Feb-13 22:27:34

Yes, yes Alfie made that agreement last time she cheated on him with a guy in a alley way <nice kat nice> hmm i think he loved her so much he didn't want to loose her so wanted to do anything to keep her, but yes only one night stands not the twat that was Derek Branning!!

When Alfie found out that Kat was cheating on her with Derek, i thought he portrayed the hurt and anguish so well, made me really tear up watching his reaction sad

MrsBucketxx Wed 20-Feb-13 07:25:10

why is kat letting alfie and roxy have tommy or does she need the baby sitting.

mrsjay Wed 20-Feb-13 08:36:27

not sure why they always have tommy I think Kat is going to play Michael is his real dad card soon to get at them

mrsjay Wed 20-Feb-13 08:37:21

When Alfie found out that Kat was cheating on her with Derek, i thought he portrayed the hurt and anguish so well, made me really tear up watching his reaction

yes he did he has forgiven so much because of kats problems but I think he was just broken and had enough

Saski Wed 20-Feb-13 10:29:58

Ugh, Kat and Michael. He's like a giant praying mantis eating her makeup off of her face. I can't stand it.

cookielove Wed 20-Feb-13 13:17:24

I did hate Michael but i do do love him now, i know its just scriptwriters, blah blah blah but i really like the statement he said about scarlett at christmas, that looking after her 'was a labour of love' ahhhh smile

Where is Janine? I must have missed an episode somewhere.

MrsBucketxx Wed 20-Feb-13 13:24:13

she buggered off to the jungle. ooopps I mean to teach Michael a lesson, and tookher money with her.

MrsBucketxx Wed 20-Feb-13 13:25:11

I like michael too, such a odd character but I like him.

cookielove Wed 20-Feb-13 13:28:34

Janine left a couple weeks after the wedding, she was struggling with everything and was sure that Michael was cheating, he wasn't. She thought Michael was only with her for the money hmm not far wrong there, and offered him a way out, giving him a suitcase full of cash (can't remember how much) she left him over night to see what he would do, any who the baby woke up and michael took her down stairs, when Janine woke up she noticed michael gone, and went to the babies room where she was gone, she ran down stairs and looked first at the table where she had left the money (it was gone) and then around the rest of the room. Where she saw Michael with the baby, he pointed out to her but her first thought to was of the money and not the baby shock

He gave her the baby and walked out <shame on him>

All she wanted was him to love her sad

Any who she packed everything up called a taxi, and when Michael came back she had it out with him, passed him the baby shock and left!! No one expected her to leave scarlett!!

Also he went out onto the street and whispered 'but i love you' but she of course couldn't hear as she was in a taxi been driven off to the jungle!!

MrsBucketxx Wed 20-Feb-13 13:31:50

it was clear she had pnd, bur ee refused to deal with this.

poor show of ee I thought.

cookielove Wed 20-Feb-13 13:55:36

Oh yes very true MrsBucket

qazxc Wed 20-Feb-13 17:44:57

i think she'll try and cut tommy out of alfie's life, after all it is michael name on the birth cert.
Why oh why is Kat irresistable to men? I would have thought that michael had more taste. he is creepy but i find his little one liners quite amusing.

cookielove Wed 20-Feb-13 17:56:40

Why won't Kat wear longer skirts, i don't get it does she not get cold?

MrsBucketxx Thu 21-Feb-13 07:35:47

but she has the hideous red fur to keep her warm, I bet wardrobe have fun shopping for her.

I can never understand why Kat or Sharon are irresistible to men either! They are so fake/ott, and both mutton. Sharon's hair is so awful.

Kirsty, on the other hand, in spite of her own fake hair & lashes, positively thrums with sex!

Oh and I think Michael is fab! wink

mrsjay Thu 21-Feb-13 08:37:44

it was clear she had pnd, bur ee refused to deal with this.

poor show of ee I thought.

jannine would never go to the Drs about PND she was far to stubborn and uptight she would think she was failing I suspect if she stayed Michael would have got a Dr in for her, <hopeful> I think janine handled it in Janines way iyswim,

hattymattie Thu 21-Feb-13 09:53:15

Is Janine coming back? She is definitely a good character. Also we need to keep Kirsty and bring back Stacy. Interesting male characters - consist of Michael - with Jack, Max and Masood vaguely interesting along with sexy black guy (father of Bianca's kid). Tamwar like I said before needs a much more meaty role. Did like Jane - when she's finished on Waterloo Road.

We need to get rid of Kat, Alfie, Roxy, Kim, Phil and Sharon and under no circumstances bring back Ayesha.

Bianca and Whitney and the Branning girls - OK for middling storylines but a bit boring now.

There EE - as I would like it.

mrsjay Thu 21-Feb-13 09:56:01

yes I think the actress took 6 months off to spend with her daughter ( or look for another job grin )

SinisterBuggyMonth Thu 21-Feb-13 14:48:03

I like Kirsty but her top lip is a character in its own right.

Pocketsocks Thu 21-Feb-13 21:27:45

Aiding to digital spy Janine has just started filming again this week

yup she tweeted it, I bet Michael will be happy to have Scarletts mother back.

SamuelWestsMistress Fri 22-Feb-13 07:36:13

What is with all the dating two days after ending a relationship? Alfie and Roxy, Masood and Carol, Max and Kirsy?

And now that bloody Beryl Cole-alike is back hmm .........

NoelHeadbands Fri 22-Feb-13 20:28:22

Thing is I've known men like Max sadly (not known in the biblical sense!)

Men who will happily bounce between two and even three women, blithely spinning them whatever tale suits at the time.

Ridersofthestorm Fri 22-Feb-13 21:56:28

What ever happened to Nick Cotton? I've watched EE on and off for years so I've no idea what happened to him. I thought he had a daughter didn't he who he brought back to help con poor old dot (yet again, think I see a familiar pattern here).
I only ask because I love it when he returns. He always, bloody always (well I've convinced myself he does) turns up like a bad penny with the best badly acted line ever "hello ma" haha. I always piss myself when he says it and then sit back to watch how he predictably wins back dots trust to only rob/betray/try to murder her. She never learns I just love it.
So what happened to him? I think he's due a come back "hello maaaa"

mrsjay Fri 22-Feb-13 21:58:30

Didnt he have cancer and die ? or is he in Prison I am sure he is dead though

SoleSource Fri 22-Feb-13 22:03:21

Spoil the moment mrsjay grin

Death too good for Nasty Nick.

mrsjay Fri 22-Feb-13 22:05:07

I am positive he came back really Ill and then was put in prison or 'something' I can remember something to do with illness and being in prison ,

SoleSource Fri 22-Feb-13 22:08:25

Hello ma lmao no.more

Drugs OD?

mrsjay Fri 22-Feb-13 22:08:46

He died in the cafe in a fire he saved somebody and his little daughter dotty remember her she looked like wednesday adams grin Dot looked after her for a while then (cant remember)

SoleSource Fri 22-Feb-13 22:10:05

Yeah she did Wednesday Adams!!!

Creepy child

mrsjay Fri 22-Feb-13 22:11:37

Nick tried to get her to kill grand MA cant remember what happened to her, TBH i think i was going through my eastenders lulls so didnt watch much

SoleSource Fri 22-Feb-13 22:16:01

Grand Ma lmao!!

I think Wednesday Adams went back to her Ma!

Ridersofthestorm Fri 22-Feb-13 22:21:31

Oh no! Nicks dead!! Ill never hear those fateful words again (except on YouTube). Was it cancer or drugs that got him in the end? Could have thought of something better than that for evil nick.
A show down with his old ma dot and she accidentally kills him whilst hurling a copy of the New Testament at his head. Dot then would get sent down, oh I would watch that. All this is getting played out in my head to the tune of Alister McGowan's impression of dot cotton/old steptoe.

Yep I need help

mrsjay Fri 22-Feb-13 22:21:51

I think you are right Im sure her MA came for her >>off to google again

hattymattie Sat 23-Feb-13 09:16:55

Ahhh - they brought back Ayesha. She is so boring. Why don't the producers listen to me.

PaintedBottom Sat 23-Feb-13 15:51:04

Call me stupid....I thought Tania was leaving for a year? Why is she back then?

MrsBucketxx Sat 23-Feb-13 16:04:39

where did you hear that painted, its news to me.

PaintedBottom Sat 23-Feb-13 17:52:21

MrsBucket I heard it a while ago. I found this on Digital Spy:

^The Daily Star quotes Joyner as saying that her recent plotlines have been "full-on", adding that she told a friend: "The rest of this year is going to be even more dramatic, because the Brannings have got some amazing stuff coming up."
The publication also claims that the actress is keen "to spend some quality time with [her] family".
Joyner is said to have already agreed a return to EastEnders and her character will not be killed off.
An EastEnders spokesperson said on Monday night (April 30) that Joyner "will be taking a break from filming in 2013 but will definitely return".^

I assumed the actress officially left a month or so ago when Max admitted he still had feelings for Kirsty......she scarpered, left her older kids and took Ocsar with her...then reappeared the other night when kirsty was having chips with the rest of the Brannings. It completely shocked me when she came back as I thought she was meant to be leaving...... confused

PaintedBottom Sat 23-Feb-13 17:53:19

That failed....the middle section was supposed to be in italics to make it easier to read. Hopefully it can still make sense....

mum47 Sat 23-Feb-13 17:57:30

Ooh I quite fancy Masood too, why oh why did they bring that dreadful drippy Cherylesque character back? She is dire.
Fave characters have to be Michael who I think is hilarious, and Tamwar, who needs a good plotline.
The whole Phil looking after Lexie thing is beyond ridiculous.

Bakingnovice Sat 23-Feb-13 21:40:14

Oh dear. Young-old Ayesha is back?? Bleurghh. And Tanya too? Ffs ee why are there two similar storylines? Nothing worse than seeing a 40 something teenager talking in sex voice all the bloody time: 'can yaaa pass us thaaaa cereaal uncle ji?'.

Agree re Sharon and Kat. Why the hell are big-back sharon, tranya and fatkat treated as irresistible? Kirsty oozes sexiness. Even with the lip.

Samu2 Sun 24-Feb-13 09:20:40

Oh so Jack is leaving. Is anyone going to care? hmm

rufussmum Sun 24-Feb-13 21:37:54

I think Carol Jackson would look 20 years younger with a lower face-lift. Those jowls!
Why are all the women is EE so damn desperate while the men are all gross/boring/wet/thick? Surely no-one really fancies Masood, or (yuk) Max, or Fatboy, or Alfie????????

Bakingnovice Sun 24-Feb-13 21:49:00

Haha. Yes too many undateables being promoted as sex on legs: Sharon, Kat, max, Alfie, Masood, aj. Urghhh. Roxy is the worst for desperation. Just a totally despicable character.

rufussmum Sun 24-Feb-13 22:01:10

Mind you...........Ian Beale. Now there's a man! (I think).

But rufuss FatBoy is lovely! You would have such a fun date if you went out with him I'm sure.

The others - yes, I'm with you. Gross/boring/wet/thick. Sometimes all four (Alfie)

rufussmum Mon 25-Feb-13 07:31:14

NotQuite...Fatboy is young enough to be my son (toyboy). Anyway, would have to slap him at some stage in evening so date so wouldn't end well.
EE is rear-guard establishment brain-washing effort to put we women viewers back in Our Place, in the kitchen/bed/launderette/behind the bar. Any woman who steps out of line gets dose of proverbial ducking-stool - or shagged by Max, which is far worse.
Anyway, I know I am a member of superior gender - why else would I be on here posting about these fictional morons at this hour?

MrsBucketxx Mon 25-Feb-13 09:12:26

what about kim, tanya they both own and run their own businesses it not all bad for the ee women.

rufussmum Mon 25-Feb-13 09:38:39

Kim is mouthy - so got dumped by hunky bloke. Tanya is pathetic, emotionally incontinent victim who lets Max walk all over her. Anyway, Tanya's beauty skills are useless as far as I can see and salon is run by juniors. Kim relies on Denise to do most of the work it seems. Anyway, in RL these 'businesses' would have gone to the wall ages ago.

mrsjay Mon 25-Feb-13 12:41:48

well I suppose they never seem to go out the square do they so there isnt much choice it is getting a bit inbred now grin

Bakingnovice Mon 25-Feb-13 13:32:57

How did Kim end up with the b&b anyway. She just seemed to turn up one day and be owner the next. Neither her or Tanya are good role models. Although I do have a soft spot for nasty Janine.

MrsBucketxx Mon 25-Feb-13 14:24:01

theres a new family coming in soon, so ee will see.

SoleSource Mon 25-Feb-13 20:13:51

Wow Kirsty has an amazing figure!

I'm really hating the Masood/CherylCole storyline. It was bad enough Alfie moving his new "bird" in after like 2 weeks! But Masood? She is so irritating too!

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 25-Feb-13 23:42:06

Masood snogging in the street sad
Shame on him !!!

twitchycurtains Tue 26-Feb-13 00:06:00

Masood is behaving like a class A twat, wtf was kissing Ayesha on the street about?, is this some kind of rebellion against culture and religion 30 years too late. Zainab the woman who he was married to for 30 years only left a couple of weeks ago and now he's snogging a girl young enough to be his daughter on the front doorstep?! Why was AJ telling him to go for it? does no one spend time getting over relationships these days (yes you Alfie) I know it's not real

suekat Tue 26-Feb-13 00:08:11

i love this thread smile yes i agree kirsty is hot ! dont know what she sees in max. and mas and ayesha will such an annoying couple! i was glad to see phil get what he deserved tonight though

twitchycurtains Tue 26-Feb-13 00:08:24

Also Asian Cheryl Cole is more like 24 going on 36. That lip job is as bad as Kirstys.

MrsBucketxx Tue 26-Feb-13 07:21:39

unfortunately phil doesn't die, but jack gets blamed for it.

kirsty is not used to the boots she wears either, rather wobbly.

Bakingnovice Tue 26-Feb-13 08:44:17

Mas you toad!! Him and young-old Ayesha are a vomit inducing couple.
Soap stories move too fast these days and lose their credibility.

Can we add Ray's daughter Sasha to the list of invisible children? I thought they were building her character up a bit, but then she just vanished!

mrsjay Tue 26-Feb-13 09:56:18

I havn't been watching I cant stand her and to see mas fawning over her would make me ill

LemonBreeland Tue 26-Feb-13 10:22:47

Forgot about Sasha Headfirst. She has just disappeared.

I love Massood and think this storyline is awful. I don't believe he would do that. Also why is it now somebody young is interested in him they have started to dress him like an old man. What is with the ugly cardis?

Sharon and Jack is a joke. They've only known each other 5 minutes. Quite happy for Jack to leaveactually, as he is completely wooden as a character.

twitchycurtains Tue 26-Feb-13 13:11:17

Has anyone mentioned Sharon's hair? Can we please discuss Sharon's hair?

suekat Tue 26-Feb-13 15:14:24

sharons hair looks like a wig from a bad halloween costume

MagzFarqharson Tue 26-Feb-13 16:25:10

Sharon's hair has it's own post code.

Go on, your turn grin

rufussmum Tue 26-Feb-13 17:29:39

Twitchy...I am proud to say I raised issue of Sharon's hair several pages ago when we discussed her fat back and other body faults. Large ladies with a jaw like Mike Tyson's and on the wrong side of 45 shouldn't wear waist-length, baby-blonde ringlets. That goes for Rox and Tanya, too.

rufussmum Tue 26-Feb-13 17:30:15

..anyway, it's all extensions, not human hair at all.

Me me me - I've referenced Miss Piggy's awful barnet before too!

How can anyone be taken seriously with that comedy hair style? And she's so intent on over-acting that I think she's in danger of eating her own head sometimes grin

NoelHeadbands Tue 26-Feb-13 19:59:54

Yes I've also done Shazzas hair grin

The programme really is dire at the moment. I'm actually EMBARRASSED for the scriptwriters after tonight's show.

tallulah Tue 26-Feb-13 20:04:34

Phil has been in the pit all day and now it is dark, and presumably evening. Where is Lexie? Does she go to the Community Centre?

twitchycurtains Tue 26-Feb-13 20:06:40

Its the semi curl semi straight thing, also too blonde and polyester looking- she really should stay away froom Dot, one false move and she'd go up in a puff of smoke, she would look so much better with a shorter style, she's all heaving bosom and hair, also noticed a fair bit of lip twitching/quivering gg on tonight aswell.

I like Tarnya's hair, her pencil skirts and knee length boots are another story.

rufussmum Tue 26-Feb-13 20:22:44

I thought tonight's show was the funniest thing I've seen for ages. Just like a lot of old Hammer Horror plots rolled into one.
Phil emerging from The Pit, like a bald zombie, then staggering into the pub.
The peroxide twins Sharon and Tanya roosting in the Vic like a couple of cackling witches and mad Jack looking more like Boris Karloff as Frankenstein's monster than usual. Anyone else think his eyes are too close together for normality?
As for Lexie and the other kids - they have all been sacrificed and eaten by the locals, the whole Square is an axis of evil.

LineRunner Tue 26-Feb-13 20:35:53

So Phil is now offically a zombie, right?

rufussmum Tue 26-Feb-13 20:43:28


Bakingnovice Tue 26-Feb-13 20:49:50

I'm proud to say I nicknamed Sharon fatback.

Anyone noticed roxys new painted on eyebrows??!! Whyyyyyy??

twitchycurtains Tue 26-Feb-13 22:19:25

I haven't noticed her eyebrows mainly because I can't see past the dip dyed rats tail hair, I remember when roxy used to be the hot one on the square all blonde hair, short skirts and cowboy hats rolling in at dawn with bff Christian (I used to love Christian), being in love with Alfie has sucked the hot out of her, she makes Kat look as fresh as the morning dew. I miss Pat now there was a woman with a sense of style

grin @ Phil the zombie!

Tonights episode was laughable. The best bit was Jack yelling at Sharon and dumping her. I only wish he'd added, "and you've got shit hair too" at the end of his tirade!

MagzFarqharson Tue 26-Feb-13 23:55:53

Resident EPhil and Lee Evans Jack the Plank - priceless! grin

LineRunner Wed 27-Feb-13 00:41:36

Phil did some right proper acting come out of that pit, gurning and throat-clutching and whispering all all sorts. Priceless.

Bakingnovice Wed 27-Feb-13 07:36:09


Loving this thread at the moment - it makes watching EE worthwhile which is saying something grin!

rufussmum Wed 27-Feb-13 18:18:34

Just need Derek the Undead to make a reappearance. Perhaps he not dead after all - despite having a funeral - think of the Max-buried-alive plot.
Why is Alice moping after Derek? He was a wife-beating, abusive, neglectful father and vicious, blackmailing, violent crook. Why everyone so intent on commemorating his miserable existance? They all hated him when he was alive.
If Alice posted on MN would be in the 'But we took you to stately homes' thread. Wonder what advice we'd give.

happydaffodil Wed 27-Feb-13 20:04:40

yes who is looking after lexie while phil is lurking in the pit? i dont understand why he would get custody in the first place, apart from the fact that he is alchy, he turned his own son into a murdering pycho because he couldnt stand that he was gay and liked dancing. it seemed first that the point of the story was to show how social services can make mistakes; lola doing a great job but still having her baby taken from her because she didnt make a good impression to the social worker. lately the story has changed; lola is really "trying", everyone thinks shes "ready" to have lexie back, sharon and the social services, but superdad phil wont give her a chance. sharon is a drug-addict and phil is a thug but they get to decide whether lola is ready to a mother or not and are seen as more "respectable" than lola and billy because they own / run a business and have expensive or "classy" clothes as phil would say angry rant over grin

LineRunner Wed 27-Feb-13 20:09:21

Yes, Zombie EastEnders has arrived.

suekat Wed 27-Feb-13 20:46:47

is anybody else sick of alice

LineRunner Wed 27-Feb-13 20:52:36

Yes. And her bizarre brother.

mrsjay Wed 27-Feb-13 20:55:51

yes she is feeble an d joey IS NOT SEXY even if Enders want us to think that

mrsjay Wed 27-Feb-13 20:57:50

happy thats what some of us though whent he story started was going to be some dodgy social worker not very good at her job disliking young parents and then being sacked not so confused

Juts to make it clear i dont think RL social workers are dodgy

Bakingnovice Wed 27-Feb-13 22:14:58

Lola / lexi/ Phil/ Sharon storyline is repulsive. It's sickening to see Phil with lexi. And surely it's time for Phil to go, I mean there are so many better places for him to be: Portugal with Grunt (grant) Cornwall with Piggy (Peggy), France with sam or jail with ben(t).

Alice is annoying and what is the actual point of joey?? His accent is as real as phils gurning.

SoleSource Wed 27-Feb-13 22:20:17

I really was ;( at the Lola/Lexi storyline. Bonkers!!! She is a woderful Mum. Her hearybreak when Lexi was stolen from her for no good reason at all was convincing and sad

Bakingnovice Wed 27-Feb-13 22:26:30

Oh yes it was. I nearly cried when lexi was taken. It was difficult to watch. Could they make Phil any more vile!

rufussmum Thu 28-Feb-13 07:27:26

I spy potential Alice-Michael moment. She sweet and innocent, he wolfish Svengali-type..those teeth! They could even each other out. Could be new storyline in Zombie Square - Dracula and the Virgin Bride.

MrsBucketxx Thu 28-Feb-13 07:53:41

lola shoukd be with lexi, phil need to go he really does.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-Feb-13 09:41:50

Said ages ago the lexi storyline was silly

No way ss would give care of a baby due to drug selling murdering been in prison and totally dodgy pscho phil

Why couldn't billy have her?

I did notice roxys eyebrows. Stupid

Yes Derek was a bully an no one likes him but guess he was still Alice's father so she misses him

Why does ALICE look after Michael's baby - does he go to work? If so doing what as he isn't being paid

Assume janine must come back soon as wanted 6mths off to spend time with Kiki earn thousands for the jungle work - though glad she won it smile

Sharon's hair is stupid. She looked lovely with short hair ages ago

Phil was funny lurching at jack and collapsing

SoleSource Thu 28-Feb-13 19:54:18

Why are people so terrified of Phill?

He is overweight, unfit and older than Jack for example. The most unikely soap gangster award goes to..

Bakingnovice Thu 28-Feb-13 23:02:30

It's coz eez a Mitchell awight??! Them is a tough fairmily innit ....

twitchycurtains Thu 28-Feb-13 23:55:43

Ayesha has bunny boiler tendancies if I was Masood I'd be v concerned, that whole innocent routine doesn't fool Tam though, that boy is wasted on the market. I don't like this Dot storyline, I love Dot and lets face it almost being murdered by your own son and having that strange dottie as a granddaughter is more than enough suffering forany woman.

Sharon looked much better with her hair pulled back, still couldn't help herself and had have some cheeky wave action going on around the back -I think there is hope yet for Sharon. Phil looked like a newborn all pink scrunchy faced lying in that hospital bed.

mrsjay Fri 01-Mar-13 08:57:22

I have missed it this week so is mas shagging cheryl now last night I watched and she wants him to go away with her I only watched it last friday and he was going on a date with carol

twitchycurtains Fri 01-Mar-13 09:03:45

Mrs jay: he isn't shagging her, but he kissed her on the doorstop and people saw him, she's taking him to a musical (ayesha the shittest temptress there ever was).

mrsjay Fri 01-Mar-13 09:05:06


drwitch Fri 01-Mar-13 09:41:14

is mas going to turn gay then, it was the first sign with Ben wasn't it? No i've got it cheryl is actually a bloke and realises that if he is to seduce mas he needs to be persuaded to bat for the other side

SoleSource Fri 01-Mar-13 20:12:07

Lol drwitch

I still cannot get over the Cheryl and Mas love stoty, noy three days after his wife of thirty years left.

bleedingheart Fri 01-Mar-13 20:17:34

Wish Cheryl would do one. Poor Tam.

Poor Bobby has had a face transplant!

WRT Janine, Michael was being secretive and was out a lot, in order for the viewer to see him as a possible for Kat's affair storyline initially, but it was never explained as to what he had been doing, he was driving her mad and made her doubt herself as a mother.

SoleSource Fri 01-Mar-13 20:21:03

Lol bleeding.

So I gather.you don't think Cheryl is 'worth it' then grin

SoleSource Fri 01-Mar-13 20:26:01

Bakingnovice Fri 01-Mar-13 20:38:06

LineRunner Fri 01-Mar-13 22:05:13

I know, Sole.

But Ayesha and Masood for a Viz comic strip, I vote.

twitchycurtains Sat 02-Mar-13 00:06:30

Yay she buggered off tonight, she also called him "sweetheart" like hello you were calling him "uncle-ji" a few short weeks ago - she is another one that acts with her lips (haven't forgotton you either Sharon!). Kinda like AJ, he says things that you think but never say out loud.

I think Denise and Ian make a nice pairing, she is clearly out of his league but then Beale always goes for women out of his league with the exception of drip Laura and the rather masculine Jane. I hope they get together, Denise is a great character but they only ever use her to show off her shit taste in men.

Poor Dot, I really don't like this storyline at all.

MrsBucketxx Sat 02-Mar-13 09:04:33

what happened with dot I missed last nights.

twitchycurtains Sat 02-Mar-13 16:46:36

there was a scene with her sat in her living room, in the dark with no heating or tv with a duvet around her, she is broke and being done for benefit fraud.

MrsBucketxx Sun 03-Mar-13 08:34:37

oh no poor dot sad

SoleSource Sun 03-Mar-13 13:11:40

Watching the omnibus now. Amazed athow much EE I have missed this week. Losing interest I think.

NoelHeadbands Sun 03-Mar-13 13:17:55

Same here, I missed Fridays.

I can't watch Ayesha, seriously.

NoelHeadbands Sun 03-Mar-13 13:27:53

Oh good she's gone.

SoleSource Sun 03-Mar-13 13:30:23

Patrick justpushed Denise!! sad is it just me or do soap operas create strong female chatacters and gradualy make them daft.

I really ike Denise, she Is my fave

SilveryMoon Sun 03-Mar-13 13:34:26

An EE thread! grin
Yes, poor Dot. I missed the bit with her in a dark room though........saw the interview with the fraud team though.
I love AJ. And Tamwar, I could watch them for hours, hilarious.
Glad the writters saw sense and didn't send Masood off with whatsherface. Him and Carol would be better, although I miss Zainab.
Can't stand Kirsty but don't really understand Tanya or the point of her character.
The whole Sharon/Jack/Phil thing makes me want to put my head through a wall. Can't stand these characters at the moment.

LineRunner Sun 03-Mar-13 13:42:28

Oh thank god Ayesha's buggered off.

Don't care about Sharon and Jack and Phil either. Don't care about Abbey and Jay and Lucy and Ian and Max and Tanya and Kirtsy and Alice and Michael and Tyler and Joey and Whit and Bianca and Carol and Cora and Alfie and Roxy.

I quite care about Dot.

SoleSource Sun 03-Mar-13 13:44:46

Oh poor Dot!.sad ijust want to look after her.

SilveryMoon Sun 03-Mar-13 14:43:03

The houses on Albert Square must be huge! At one point she had her, Cora, Rose, Patrick and Fatboy living there din't she? So 5 bedrooms?!
The same with Pat's house. Her, Bianca, Carol, and all those kids.

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 03-Mar-13 16:11:52

ive always thought that about the houses, meant to be a typical 3 bed, 2 double and single room

the slaters when all lived there turned downstairs dining room into bedroom for charlie but then had 4 girls up there, plus little mo husband, and other sister played by elaine someone with mechanic husband who worked with ricky

lauren has her own bedroom, as does her sister, so where does their brother, the child no one sees sleep - not in tanys bedrookm

cookielove Sun 03-Mar-13 18:51:42


Catching up on enders and OMG Masood and the Ayesha kissed WTAF!!!!!!!!

Bakingnovice Sun 03-Mar-13 19:39:29

Tanya's got a bloody cheek. Buggered off for three weeks god knows where then swans back in and expects them all to be pining for her. She's done it enough times do NO ONE gives a shit anymore. And lose the suede knee high wedges ffs.

So max loves Kirsty but wants Tanya. So Alfie loves roxy but wants Kat. Why are ee doing the same boring story twice? Bore off.

LineRunner Sun 03-Mar-13 19:53:11

Tanya has to wear suede wedges since we all started taking the piss out of her clippy-cloppy stiletto heels.

The producers have their people reading these threads, I reckon.

Hence Ayesha's departure back to Wor Hoose.

SilveryMoon Sun 03-Mar-13 20:04:39

I didn't really understand what Tanya's problem was with the Kirsty thing.
Her and Max split up. In fact, she left him didn't she? She shacked up with another bloke (Gregg) and was going to marry him, so what's the problem with Max finding someone else. Ok, he should have told her, it was wrong that he kept it from her, but they both moved on.
Then they get back together, he tells Kirsty to do one, and tries to have an honest talk with Tanya about his feelings were he admitted that he can't just turn them off but he wanted Tanya, she cops are strop and leaves. Again. WTAF?
And Kirsty, coming back the minute she hears Tanya's left to take back Max after he had humiliated her in front of other people telling her he doesn't want her. Wouldn't you feel like second best? Get some self respect you loser. Or am I missing something?

LineRunner Sun 03-Mar-13 20:13:42

Don't forget the bit about Tanya burying Max alive in the woods.

SilveryMoon Sun 03-Mar-13 20:17:59

Yes, we were having a break from EE but got back in around that time. Not sure what led to that, but it's definitely one fucked up relationship. Makes the relationship board here look positively normal! wink

MooMooSkit Sun 03-Mar-13 20:43:06

Sharon has no neck. It really annoys me! Hate that storyline with her and Jack it's really poor.

Is it me as well but no one seems to "mourn" relationships? In real life if people have been together years it takes time to move on but Masood just jumps in the sack with anyone 2 seconds after Z left and Alfie is shacked up with Miss Bleach Burnt Hair 2 seconds after splitting with kat?! And Roxy's character is pathetic. How sad is she literally jumping on a man who's just split from his wife of over 10 years? What a bizarre woman.

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 04-Mar-13 23:43:20

Poor Lola tonight sad

I did think the sw had changed her tune. It's all her fault Lola lost her baby and now she is saying doing a good job

Can't believe phil did all that sad and even worse Sharon no neck just listened and said nothing sad

PaintedBottom Wed 06-Mar-13 00:08:29

Oh how cute is Lexi grin

www.tumblr.com/tagged/doll%20on%20a%20music%20box <-- I've finally realised who Sharon looks like......that scene tonight where she's looking at Lola outside the courtroom! I hope that link works. If not just copy and paste it, 'cause it's late here and I can't be arsed!

Anyone else disturbed by the scene last night where Sharon slapped Jack then they immediately fell into a passionate (eeuuww) embrace/bed? What message does this give younger viewers? That violence can be sexy?

Imagine if the situation had been reversed (ie. Jack assaults Sharon which leads to sex). Not acceptable, on a family soap opera, or IRL.

Not only that, the lip-locking & bonkers eye-rolling from Sharon made me feel positively queasy.

happydaffodil Wed 06-Mar-13 18:59:41

yes i found the sharon/jack sex scene nausiating aswell and the panting afterwards. i dont remember jacks character being such a patriachal control freak either "you need a man to take care of you"? blondes i dont understand either why trish is now being nice? lola has an apprentiship so she should get the baby back seems to be the theme now, the fact that the baby was taken for no reason seems to have been written out, must be because of all the complaints from social workers to bbc

Bakingnovice Wed 06-Mar-13 22:38:14

I'm a bit behind but me and Dh were rolling on the floor laughing at the episode where Phil climbs out of the grave zombi like and falls into the pub! Terrible script, terrible acting and terribly funny!!

I don't get the jack and Sharon thing at all. I don't get why jack is considered fit. He looks like Frankenstein and can't act. Him and Sharon met three months ago but they're acting like they've been in a long term relationship. And I'm sorry but I was a 4 0 plus, broad backed, no necked, ringlet clad woman with a few dead exes, a kid and a few failed marriages I'd be trying harder to make my relationship work. Shazza don't give a shit really.

VonHerrBurton Thu 07-Mar-13 00:06:15

Where the hell is Denny all the time? Through all the arguments, door slamming, liasons in R and R, vomit-enducing sexy scenes... He's never there! Mist kids would be under your feet in a small flat. Maybe he's playing quietly with Oscar in his room. :/

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 07-Mar-13 00:15:06

Pmsl baking at description of Sharon

And Dennis is prob in that place unknown where all the kids go

Then again half the time he's about as 'ill'and doesn't need to go to school but jack looks after him - if kids feel too ill to go to school then they go to Bed

Least Sharon stuck up for Lexi - tho a tad too late sad

rufussmum Thu 07-Mar-13 07:43:10

Lexi seems to live strapped into her buggy, parked in Phil's house, in the freezing lock-up - where the hell are the social workers? Phil is a monster and Shaton (meant to type Sharon but real Freudian slip there) is facilitating his child-abusive, psychotic behaviour. She is really thick, and not just her neck.
Lola has shown that she is impulsive, irresponsible and has a violent temper, not helping her cause is she?
I think the Lola/Lexi storyline is disturbing, she is being emotionally tortured - why are so many women on EE treated so badly? Remember the Ronnie/baby stealing plot? Are all the scriptwriters sadistic/misogynistic.

Bakingnovice Thu 07-Mar-13 08:44:47

I agree rufus. Shaton is phils facilitator. Really hate the Lola storyline. It's beyond grim. EE used to have good strong matriarchs but these days it portrays virtually every woman as weak and every mother as a terrible: roxy, ronnie, Sharon, Tanya. Kim's quite strong and funny but even she was a whimpering wreck when ray dumped her.

VonHerrBurton Thu 07-Mar-13 11:54:10

This has been touched on before in other threads, but 99% of the women on EE are dolled up to death - every day, even relaxing in their own houses. Sharon, Roxy, Tarrrrnya, Cora, Kirsty, Kat.... face full of slap, high heels and hair coiffed. To go, err, nowhere? Tarrrrn never actually does any work in the salon, just breezes in, cancels 'all her appointments' leaving Poppy (wtf?) in charge. What does she do? Where does she go in her power suits, silk ruffled blouses and high heels?

SinisterBuggyMonth Thu 07-Mar-13 17:29:08

I hated the Shaton and Jack slap and snogging. If the roles were reversed it would have been picked up on. There relationship is so fake and badly acted.

Tanya is annoying me so much she seems to throw a strop and leave for a whole 2 weeks every 2 weeks like a petulant child having a strop. The rest of EE have to agree to pretend they didnt noticed she' d gone that might teach her!

Max ca have Kirsty. Her lip has its own postcode.

rufussmum Thu 07-Mar-13 18:28:20

The biggest mystery is why the hell are we all watching this crap?

SinisterBuggyMonth Thu 07-Mar-13 19:49:04

Poor Lexi sad

SinisterBuggyMonth Thu 07-Mar-13 20:34:44

And Lola. She can out act Phil any day

Bakingnovice Thu 07-Mar-13 20:41:19

Tranya is a joke. Why can't she just use her annual leave if she wants time with her kids? Too many walkouts. Then shf wonders why no one gives a shit when she waltzes back in wearing ringlet extensions, fakey lashes and a pencil skirt. She never works, never mothers anyone, oh but she does seem to do a lot of three course farmalee lunches.

Back on Shazza/Jack (sorry, I just have to get this out of my system!) - he told her he just wanted them to be a normal family ("you, me, Denny").

No mention of his own 3 children by 3 mothers (Penny, Amy, Richard)!

He had children with 2 sisters (Ronnie & Roxy) and then with their cousin (Sam). His other daughter by previous is in a wheelchair because Jack 'upset' some villains.

He also shacked up with his sis-in-law (Tanya) for a while.

Someone remind me why he is considered a catch?? confused

suekat Fri 08-Mar-13 16:40:55

omg it was so sad last night i actually cried when phil found lola. shes such a fab actress. did i imagine it or did he give her a hug ? maybe hes finally putting an end to his child-snatching ways?

MrsBucketxx Sat 09-Mar-13 08:07:50

I think its a ploy to get sharon back.

Shinyshoes1 Sun 10-Mar-13 12:07:15

Nospringchickendipper Sun 10-Mar-13 14:26:46

Richard is the son he had with Sam Mitchell.

I agree Von Herr especially Tanya and Cora yet Tanya never does any housework or work it seems. The worse was Vanessa.

Kat in her hideous coat and high heels on a field or on a freezing market stall - very realistic.

Bakingnovice Mon 11-Mar-13 21:20:55

Phil lexi Lola story. Please. Fucking. End. Horrible story. Totally Unbelievable.

rufussmum Tue 12-Mar-13 08:37:48

Where are all the old people in EE? Apart from Dot and Patrick, and he's only 65? Also, where are all the fatter people? Apart from Kim and she's a cartoon. The young girls and Dot are all skinny - Lucy, Poppy - even the older ones are slimmish.
Also what about Denise's wig? Doesn't anyone in EE have their own hair? Apart from Max who has none.
Perhaps the old and the obese are sent to the same place as the silent children. Bit like Day of the Triffids.

It's true Rufus. Although I suppose Cora is more senior than most of the characters. And let's face it, Sharon is no slim Jim. She's definitely chunked up since re-joining Easties.

Punkatheart Tue 12-Mar-13 13:11:36

They murdered Hevver. Hevver's boyfriend left. So yes, no people of larger stature...not even floating around the market.

I can honestly say that the only character I like is Tam - who seems like a decent bloke. At least Masood did the right thing - showing people moving on after a 30 year relationship as if it didn't matter, just depresses me.

I could not live in Albert Square. The screaming, the marital discord, Ian's veg....it's not paradise.

rufussmum Tue 12-Mar-13 13:54:11

True NotQuite, although Cora has balls so not technically an EE-type woman.
Punk...........'the screaming, the marital discord'...bit like here.
Hevver got murdered because she was fat....all the women in EE who don't behave or fit 'blonde bird' profile get punished somehow. Blondes have more fun on EE - they get to shag Phil/Max/Jack whereas brunettes Ian.

rufussmum Tue 12-Mar-13 13:54:45

SinisterBuggyMonth Mon 18-Mar-13 20:12:47

God I hate the way Kat talks to Alfie, she actually bullies him half the time, wheather she's in a relationship with him or not. She shagged Derek ffs.

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 18-Mar-13 23:40:21

Why is Ava now working in Walford state school when the other month she was in a private school (when Tanya found her)

And she was running the out-of-school club at the Community Centre at half term. No end to her talents! (Or workplaces)

Wrote long post yesterday wrt Phil/Tanya and everybody sh*gging their extended family members then it disappeared angry!

Anyway my point was that the gene pool is getting smaller & smaller in Walford and it is totally unrealistic that everyone shags their neighbours/in-laws all the time.

Yes I know it's not real. But think the script writing is lazy.

rufussmum Tue 19-Mar-13 17:55:11

Multi-generational inter-family shagging would explain the weird no-necks and mentally deficient inhabitants, though NQP. Anyway, they must all be related as the women all have blonde hair and addiction to hopeless blokes. Also all the blokes keep their brain cell in their privates. Defo all related.

Bakingnovice Tue 19-Mar-13 22:50:09

Hahaaa. This is why I keep coming back to this thread. Rufusmum you are hilarious. I had to take a break from watching when I heard tranya was gonna shack up with phul.

AmandinePoulain Wed 20-Mar-13 21:44:38

In reference to earlier zombie theories - I had a cheaply-made-horror-movie moment last night when Liam was locked upstairs and Bee-Ankah, Carol and Kim's ex (whose name has gone out of my head) were downstairs. "He's not the same boy", "he's changed...he's like a different person". All that was missing was some creepy music and groaning from outside and it could have been a classic zombie film. I'm telling you, Phil has infected him grin

twitchycurtains Wed 20-Mar-13 21:47:10

Haven't posted on here for a while, still watching although I am finding the Bianca storyline very difficult to watch.

Sharon's lips were acting their lipgloss off the other night. All that quivering and emoting, I swear I saw them continue to quiver even when she wasn't talking - watch closely and you'll see what I mean.

Ooooh, Taaaarnya has some new boots which like most of what she wears do absolutely nothing for her, seeing as she has shagged most of the eligible men in her circle it was only a matter or time before they tried to pair her with Phil. In what universe would a woman like Taaarnya even consider grandad Phil, in what universe would he have the likes of Sharon and Taaarnya fighting over him??? (you know it's leading to that)

They've cleaned up Kirsty a bit so she doesn't always have that "just been shagged senseless" look about her.

When did Ian start wearing that hat?

Does Carol ever wear anything but a waterfall cardie?

Obviously I watch for the hard hitting realism, obviously.

twitchycurtains Wed 20-Mar-13 21:48:56

Still hate poxy roxy and her nasty hair extensions and fake channel (yes channel!) jackets.

MooMooSkit Wed 20-Mar-13 21:55:07

I died a little last night because Bianca had the same Primark cardi as me. blush OH took great delight in telling me I had the same fashion sense as Bianca.

Sharon no neck is still doing my head in. Why was she ever cast?! I've seen better acting from a can of beans.

I thought Tanya was leaving? Why is she still there? She's even getting on my nerves and I love Jo Joyner as an actress.

RedPencils Wed 20-Mar-13 21:58:50

Moomoo - Bianca has my dressing gown (from Next).

Tanya left for a bit and then came back again. Don't think she'd going god good though. Tanya and phil - ew

Hey, more posts! Amandine - good thinking - I was hoping B would break down the door and find Liam had turned into a great slimy mass and was crawling all over the walls, like Quatermass.
Also, how did he have a pee after all those hours locked in his room? See, aliens/zombies don't have natural bodily functions.
Demon seed loose in The Square. Perhaps the kids are all silent cos they are really baby Damiens. 666 Albert Square. Look out for the house numbers.

Painted...the function of prog like EE is to remind us all that our own lives/family aren't really that bad/poor/boring/dysfunctional/crap. If EE was happy, we'd all feel even worse than we do now. Like all quick mood-fixes it's horribly addictive. Re-hab anyone?

Well we weren't shown what Oscar was up to when he locked Tanya out were we? Perhaps he's the leader, Children of the Corn anyone? Denny is freakishly compliant too - leading them to have a false sense of security perhaps? wink
