    EE hit a new low for me yesterday though... I really don’t need scenes discussing Amy’s period.
    Aw, I thought they were good. They’d have been better if the girl who plays Amy could actually act though.

    • I liked that it highlighted a need for Amy to have a mother figure, and a need for Mel to have someone to look after. Maybe there’s hope for her and Jack after all.

      Corrie has been pretty dire lately but Emmerdale has largely been consistent. Emmerdale wasn’t even nominated though!

        I agree. It was nice to see Mel soften a bit.

        Emmerdale I agree has been most consistent
        Love you like a love song!

        • So is that Kathy selling her necklace to buy a gay bar?

          • Icon Kathy.

            Though I’m enjoying the actor, I’m not enjoying the character of Ben this time round (yet).

              Me either. Harry Reid’s Ben was the perfect combination of a Mitchell with a conscience.

              Where did Ben get that necklace for Kathy? Can’t remember.

              • Cringing hard at ďTaylorballĒ. Is there any scene that takes place in that part that isnít embarrassing?

                Not Jack and Denise? It amazes me how EE throws people together whoíve lived next to each other for ten years and only then suddenly realise theyíre attracted to each other.

                • Ben is very Del-Boy-trying-to-be-gangster. He canít even pull off the Del Boy part, never mind gangster

                  I like the intention of trying to make him Ďmore Mitchellí - but he doesnít have the brains to be Phil or the brawn to be Grant. Heís a bit of a one trick pony at the moment so letís see what happens... itís early days.

                  I like Kat and Kush as characters and their scenes have been fun... but I donít think it works. I know he likes an older woman but there no future in it is there.

                  I think itís a shame theyíve killed of Dinah so soon - thereís not much of an impact when itís a character we donít really know. I think it would have been interesting to have had her in it for a year and leading towards the same end. But in terms of story I think they missed a trick here.

                  So Max is plotting to get Mel. Is this revenge on Jack for sleeping with Rainie?

                  • I’m here for anything that gives Denise screen time, Diane and Scott played off each other great in The Bill. But Jack and Chelsea were dating for a while back in the day so I’m sure it’s a bit weird. Haven’t watched the episode yet though.

                    • Anyone idea when Denise threw a jug of water on Jack then? Rings no bells

                        It was the other way around, about 8 years ago.

                        • Oh god

                          Poor Jack hasnít really aged well at all has he.

                          • Compared to Denise, no one has aged well.

                            I think Jack still looks good personally.

                              what do you mean? I know thatís how I end up relationship. hmm I havenít been with the guy from flat 5 yet... *knock knock*

                                I have no recollection of Chelsea and Jack!

                                  It was round the same time Jack got shot in the head in the club.

                                    • It's weird to think how long some of the characters have been on the show. These are all the characters that have been onscreen for 10 years or longer (without taking any extensive breaks):

                                      Ian Beale (1985-)
                                      Billy Mitchell (1998- )
                                      Patrick Trueman (2001-)
                                      Denise Fox (2006-)
                                      Max Branning (2006-)
                                      Shirley Carter (2006-)
                                      Jay Brown (2006-)
                                      Whitney Dean (2008- )
                                      Kim Fox (2009-)

                                      • Well Jean did take a long break. A couple actually. Some being quite long but yeah it's crazy that so many have been in so long

                                          Amended, you're right - she only appeared in 15 episodes between 2014 and 2017, before becoming a regular again in early 2018.

                                            And most of these are underused and sidelined! Kim is one dimensional, Whitney is a bit-part, Jay is one of the most likeable characters in the show yet they don’t let him take front and centre.

                                            Technically Ian’s on an extensive break now...?

                                            • My version of extensive break is a year or more. Kim and Denise have both had time off for maternity leave, and Shona was suspended for a few months.

                                              Out of all those characters, Max is the most tiresome IMO. Jake Wood just looks bored all the time.

                                              • Max should’ve been killed off in the roof fall instead of Abi.

                                                Abi had SO much potential to be the next Janine. I’d have loved to have her around now as single mother, especially as Ben’s back - could totally imagine her being involved in his dodgy dealings.

                                                • I'd take Abi over Lexi, plus Abi's darkside was hilarious. I'm still pissed they killed her off.
