Thanks for new thread Blondes.

It seems we're having more Important Topics being introduced - Tommy's learning difficulties and institutional racism in the Walford police force.

Thanks, Blondes for new thread.

The storyline of the Met Police and racism is valuable but poorly delivered. I think soaps in general dont deliver social ills well. Homelessness, addiction, debt etc.

I'm really liking the Kush and Kat union.

I do hope Sharon and Phil get back together.

I dont think M and Ell will sell.

Ian's guilt will eat from within.

Think EE are doing the domestic violence storyline better than Corrie at the moment.

It is boring at the moment.

I don't think Keegan's storyline is boring at all. It's something black teenagers/young men are having to deal with in real life.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 14-Apr-20 23:03:51

Whitney. Not tiff

Keegan doesn’t help his self but guess I’d always being victimised then maybe eventually you think fuck it

I don't think Keegan has done anything wrong insofar as if a white person had said and done the same things, the outcome would have been very different. It's a whole culmination of a thousand and one minor discriminatory things that are chipping away at him.

Thanks for the new thread.

The Keegan story is so tedious, it feels like one PSA announcement going on all the time.

I wonder when we'll run out of episodes. Has to be soon as I can't imagine they'll be allowed to film again before June.

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 15-Apr-20 09:24:01

If usually filmed 6w in advance and have 4 a week

So 24

That went down to 2 a week when lockdown so 3w ago -

So could run for maybe 12w so maybe another 8w

Blondes is hopeful 😂

I'll be honest, I'm finding it boring. I don't give a shit about Ben and his hearing. Or about most of the other storylines.

PinkDaydreams Wed 15-Apr-20 09:44:16

I’m in agreement with many of you, finding it boring at the minute! And yet I still tune in to watch blush

southeastdweller Wed 15-Apr-20 09:51:45

One other thing that's dragging the show down is the Panesar family. They've not integrated properly into the show and they don't add much. I think the producers wanted to add more south Asian characters into EE to be more representative of the real east end but nobody can be bothered to give them any decent stories and character development.

SoupDragon Wed 15-Apr-20 10:14:03

It took a while for the Taylors to bed down into the Square.

JemimaTab Wed 15-Apr-20 11:59:30

I’m struggling with the Panesars too, I find them all unlikeable. In an early scene when they first arrived, Kheerat physically squared up to his sister in a quite unpleasant way that made me shudder a bit, and IMO he’s not improved since.

The80sweregreat Wed 15-Apr-20 18:41:22

I'm bored with it all atm.
I only caught the last ten mins yesterday and I didn't really care about Tiff or Keegan.
Ash and Iqra seem to be heading for an off / on relationship and I also am bored by Ben n Callum who I used to really like a lot. I'm not sure why I'm not feeling it : could be the corona virus curse or just some boring storylines just now.
I'm sure I'll miss it when it's not on though : there will be gaps as they can't film at the moment.

Blondeshavemorefun Wed 15-Apr-20 20:45:13

Why does older brother wear a turban but other 2 don’t

I presume it's just because he is more devout/committed to his religion.

lazymum99 Wed 15-Apr-20 22:54:23

I’m finding it boring too.
I think it is written to be shown 4 times a week and it is too slow when only on twice. You have to wait ages for the next episode and then nothing much happens.
They should show it Tuesdays and Thursdays to avoid such a big gap.

BrutusMcDogface Thu 16-Apr-20 21:06:24

I’m enjoying the dullness and normality of the whole thing. It’s comforting. Nobody is talking about the bloody virus.

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 17-Apr-20 12:18:33

Watched tue last night

Tiff where will we live

Erm

Well you have a uncle with a house - a mil with a flat and another Aunty Sonja with a whole house

Did anyone else notice Mo’s reference to Tommy locking Cherry in the cupboard?
Must have been written by a MNer.

SoupDragon Fri 17-Apr-20 13:48:26

I did but it was towards the end of the last thread.

SoupDragon Fri 17-Apr-20 13:48:46

Totally Written by a MNer

InvisibleWomenMustBeRead Fri 17-Apr-20 23:36:13

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 20-Apr-20 14:51:16
