Anyone see it this week?

What a poor season opener. I don't think I laughed once.

I'm hoping that it was all about scene-setting in ep1 and that it'll pick up. It's such a good series - just the right balance of drama and comedy. I do wish they hadn't killed off Rob though.

Disappointed. It's lost its sharp wittiness that it had in the first two series. Think I'm gonna give it a miss which is sad because I've watched all the previous shows.

Wheelerdeeler Mon 18-Sep-17 18:27:40

I agree. Such a shame. Ruth Jones used to be so good

MozzchopsThirty Mon 18-Sep-17 21:17:04

Oh it was terrible, her acting is so poor
The storylines feel like they've been done before
I'm not sure I can bear it

I only watch for aunty Brenda as she sounds just like dd's nana grin

Did I miss the bit where she slept with rob?? I could only remember her being tempted but saying she couldn't cheat on Michael.

Wheelerdeeler Tue 19-Sep-17 22:56:04

We never saw her sleep with Rob.

At least I'm not going mad then grin

It's obvious she couldn't think of a decent new storyline so just pulled Rob being the baby's dad out of her arse a la Dallas back in the 80's!
It was all disjointed, with no connection between the characters - they've lost too many key people, like Emma, Paula, Dai and Karl. Nadine doesn't seem to have a purpose and all Auntie Brenda does is shout. She gets far too much airtime.
I miss the early seasons - they were fab.
Still, Michael is a good addition - he reminds me of my teaching mentor when I did my pgce god, he was fit

I liked it when her daughter (think she was called Emma) was having the affair with James Thornton who's wife was a hairdresser or something ?

What happened in this week's episode ?

Aderyn17 Thu 21-Sep-17 21:37:34

Stella told Michael about the baby being Rob's. Confirmed with dna test.

I’ve watched from the beginning but I’m starting to lose patience with the show... it’s all a bit ridiculous really.

cushioncovers Sun 24-Sep-17 10:52:13

Along with those cringeworthy Tesco ads it's all a bit disappointing compared to her Gavin and Stacey days.

I've only just watched the first 2 series of this (bought them on dvd in a charity shop). They're ok but the accents are appalling! I know they can't necessarily find valley actors but they could at least all be Welsh! It really grates.

If the later series go downhill then I won't bother buying any more.

tinytemper66 Sun 24-Sep-17 18:01:11

I haven't watched it for such a long time. I don't find it remotely funny.

ellenanora5 Sun 24-Sep-17 18:41:45

Its really bad now, don't think I'll bother with it anymore, also I thought Michael wasn't Jackson's father, maybe I missed an episode last series.

I wish big Alan and Karl were still in it, Aunty Brenda gets on my nerves.

Wheelerdeeler Tue 26-Sep-17 22:37:04

Where did Stella's nan come from? Never mentioned before.

Beyonce and keckers turning up at the meal? And no one kicking them out?

Ah so much annoying me about it

Aderyn17 Wed 27-Sep-17 07:16:03

Stella is bugging me too. Who comes home with a foster child and doesn't run it by their husband first? Social services wouldn't let it happen anyway. And just expecting her dh to get over finding out that the baby isn't his after 5 mins!

FeralBeryl Thu 28-Sep-17 14:02:59

Anyone see last nights?
I am so disappointed with this series now. I binged watched from series 1 last week and was so excited but meh.

She's not acting remotely sorry to my beautiful Michael over how she's acted sad
Characters are crap. Storylines lacking. What's happened?

Loopytiles Thu 28-Sep-17 20:23:09

The baby being rob's storyline is crappy.

Oakmaiden Thu 28-Sep-17 20:26:33

My daughter is actually in this series, and even then I'm not sure I can be bothered watching any of them...

FeralBeryl Thu 28-Sep-17 21:51:33

Ooh really Oak How exciting, will you spill who she is?

GoldenGumballs Fri 29-Sep-17 08:58:00

I only watch it for Nadine, Beyoncé and Banjo!

Vq1970 Fri 29-Sep-17 09:10:41

I've watched it from the beginning as well and was exciting for the new series but it's definitely lost something. I'll keep watching it but it's not as good and it's a little bit unbelievable. I know it's tv and isn't real but there are too many things going on that you just think, nope, that wouldn't happen.

Aunty Brenda is annoying!

Oakmaiden Fri 29-Sep-17 10:58:37

Nah, she is not a named character. She loved filming though - the director made up a complex little story for her and her friends to act out in the background while the real action was going on in front. she has been in it a couple of times over the years.

I do feel bad - I have only ever watched something she has been in on TV once. Mostly she gets parts in Pobol y Cwm and Gwaith Catref, and my Welsh is not great so I can't really even be bothered to work out when it is on. She loves being paid for her hobby though!
