it was the 'get everyone into the orchard' which puzzled me....i assumed that they could gate themselves in there! It really is crackers at the moment!

ReshapeWhileDamp Mon 18-Jun-12 22:16:31

The writing's really been ... odd recently, hasn't it? Ponderous and many many out-of-characterisations.

Very odd and the background crowd screaming noises weren't right somehow.

The Amy storyline needs to be wrapped up.

Ponders Mon 18-Jun-12 22:25:16

I actually had to turn off the sodding bullocks & all that screaming & "ED!" "GEORGIE!" "ED!" "GET BACK IN THE BARN!" etc etc etc

ridiculous hmm

rofl at Fenton, Reshape grin

Twas embarrassing.

yy to winding up Amy.

She is making no sense at all.

bea Tue 19-Jun-12 07:41:21

Amy = bonkers as conkers!

Please!!! resolve this storyline!!!

Amy confronts Carl... He calls her all sorts of horrible things naive/silly girl/think i'd dump my real woman and gorgeous children for you? / you need to get a life! Go away back to your little village life!.... AMy realises what a silly fool she has been and how awful/spiteful she's been... runs back to vicarage and apologises hugely to Usha and Alan... Chris celebrates getting his wife/house and bathroom back! goes on! dum dee dum dee dum dee dum....

all in 14 mins please! grin

bea - I'll bet that's exactly what's going to happen - sadly it'll be drawn out.

I listened to Sunday's episode on the bus on the way to work on Monday morning; for the first time ever someone asked me to turn the sound down as apparently all that shouting was disturbing them. I was mortified!
Waiting impatiently for the Amy/Carl resolution.

bea, did you write the script tonight? grin

Strawbezza Tue 19-Jun-12 19:15:36

Bea would you like to pick my lottery numbers please? grin

AvengingGerbil Tue 19-Jun-12 19:24:25

This is what happens when you get an Eastenders producer in Ambridge. I never thought I'd be hoping Vanessa Whitburn would come home...

bea Tue 19-Jun-12 21:13:05

Woo! Hoo! I actually sheered when he called her naive!!! Ha! Ha! grin

Nah not a scritpwriter... just standard story telling... isn't it! wink

Now I'm awaiting in anticpation for the Humble Pie eating (a whole bakery full for Amy!!!)


"Dad... Usha... I'm really sorry for being such an arse over this whole Carl thing" blush

However ... don't think those words will be as probable as my first prediction! grin

bea Tue 19-Jun-12 21:13:42

ooops... 'cheered'... not 'sheered'!!

ReshapeWhileDamp Tue 19-Jun-12 23:09:42

I was boggling a bit this evening, Bea! grin Well done, Mystic Meg.

Please tell me she's now going to hunt down the legendary Rochelle and boil her bunny and tell her all. PLEASE.

oooh yes, I would like to hear her telling Rochelle,and, however much she grovels to Alan and Usha I still think they should encourage her to move out.
I did wonder if she was going to tell Carl she was 'with child' though grin

Ponders Wed 20-Jun-12 09:41:32

I'm wondering if the lovely house in the best part of Borsetshire will get her all stalky on them & she'll actually get worse now shock maybe she'll kidnap the daughter! (that would be good EE storyline, along with the farm thugs)

bea Wed 20-Jun-12 10:35:25

Ladies! Ladies! This is Ambridge... not Albert Square! (although it might feel like that at times!).... shock

there'll be no kidnapping, no stalking but... she might tell Rochelle... as this might stir things up with Usha... you know the Lawyer connection and all! with the current climate will not be surprised... the more opportunity for more screaming and crying... grin

However ... if they remember that this is The Archers and Radio 4... AMy will realise that she's been a complete biatch! apologise and remember that she is indeed a vicar's daughter, a grown sensible young lady and go back to delivering babies... smile

I haven't completely caught up with the omnibus yet, but has anyone ever explained how a supposedly happily married man happens to have a bachelor flat in Borchester?

Songbird Wed 20-Jun-12 11:14:18

Ding dong! Finally Blamey's anger will be aimed at the person who deserves it! She's right - what a bastard! LOVED that though, everything he said was bang on! And you bea - spooooooky!

Ponders Wed 20-Jun-12 11:58:22

when she stalked the bachelor flat he wasn't there, Corgi, so maybe he just borrowed it?

TheOriginalSteamingNit Wed 20-Jun-12 12:00:52

Ben finding the savaged sheep was funny. 'Wow, Mrs Snell's beast must be very fierce.

Also enjoyed Ruth's Britain's Got Talent moment the other day: 'oooh, Ben, have ye seen me keys?' and I had the 'where me keys' song translated into Ruth-speak going round my head all day.

Ooh ben, have ye seen me keys?
Oooh Josh, have ye seen me phone?
I'm in that situation where I lost me keeys and I've lost me phone
oooooh nooooo.
