The Emmerdale Thread

A fly on the wall observing the fictional escapes of the soap world.

I've been trying to read all the posts on here since I joined - PHEW!
And I've seen a thread for Eastenders but not one for our esteemed rural Yorkshire soap, so I thought I'd have a go and start one to see if anyone else watches it?

It's had a bad patch lately I think but it seems to be picking up a bit now.
I am planning on sending a truck load of thermals up there for them because scenes in the village recently have made me feel cold and I'm in front of a warm fire!

A light hearted soap which, unlike some soaps set in the capital, does not take itself too seriously.

No greater friend, no worse enemy.

Yes, although some people dismiss it as 'panto' - I rather like that element of it. As long as it doesn't go TOO much in that direction of course.
I am intending to attend the next writers meeting with my Sicilian family to have a little word in their ears.
I am not happy with the standard of some of the storyilines, and when my Godfather and I have finished there we will visit the Casting Department to tell them how to do their jobs.

I go through phases with Emmerdale. Sometimes I get into it and other times I think it's a barrel of nonsense.

It has it's share of 'fit birds' though so for a bit of light hearted eye candy it's worth having on while browsing Smeggy's :)

Bet Jimmy Mr Blunders King is missing her, too.

I always hated her character in her early days in the soap - but when she returned I really loved her.

Wonder if she will come back?

She's due to come back after a break I think. Much needed too, as the cast is need of better characters IMO.

But now Viv is going, her reasons for coming back are fewer. There is just Jimmy for her now.
They were very entertaining as a couple, so we must keep hoping. :)

I wish Lexi would clear off.

I think the Terry character's one of the best in the show; certainly more believable than clowns like Bob and Marlon etc.

I hope Kelly is back soon.
And I hope Lexi shoves off even sooner.

Lousy actress IMO and pretty useless character.

She's had poor storylines, I don't think that's helped. That said, she's very unconvincing as a supposed ex 'drugs dealer'. Chosen more for looks than ability perhaps?

It's her delivery and lack of facial expression which annoys me.
As you know - like SULLA, I am an expert on other people's acting ability[ :D ] and she just says her lines with a set mouth and deadpan look. No expression, no light and shade - just monotone.
I don't like it one bit.
Even little TJ when he said "DISGUSTIN'" the other night put more expression and emphasis into it.
Ok, I know it was only one word, but you know what I mean.

I have been deeply disturbed by scenes on tonight's show.

Pearl's new beret will give me nightmares. I really think these wardrobe people should consider their purchases more carefully, I really do.

If I don't get my sleep I am REALLY irritable. It's just NOT ON!
