    End of term report:

    What I dislike:

    The glacial speed that the plots progress. OK, that may be the speed that things happen in real life, but it makes for bad drama. Take a look at Coronation Street, they concentrate on a story line and move it forward from episode to episode, which is very compelling.

    The need to have a thug. Since introducing Phil and Grant (and their mother)... based on the Krays?... there seems to be the need to have a thug threatening other characters. It's lazy, formulaic and it doesn't make for pleasant viewing... and to be honest it's got a bit ridiculous. To believe that Phil and Derek could come on like Mafia god fathers, when they're both short, middle aged, unfit and don't have a mob of heavies backing them up is frankly a bit ridiculous.

    What I look forward to:

    Lauren and Joey getting together. I'm truly moved by this story line. Just hope the writers don't turn it into some cliche sideshow.

    To sum up, instead of inventing unreal situations for the sake of impact and drama, give us some normal situations with strong moral dilemmas that we can all relate to.

    Yet another Christmas when a mother is being deprived of her child! It has all got too much. I am one of many around here who have decided to leave Eastenders.
    There is no even slight pretence of normal life as in other "soaps ".

    Good by to it...... Thank goodness that real Social workers are unlikely to hand a baby to be cared for by a Mitchell type.

    At least Prophet's blog is more interesting than the programme, so that's a bonus.

    No, Peta asked our opinion of restarting some of the really big threads to help people keep up with current discussions.
    Those who replied to the query seemed largely in favour of the idea ... Some people even suggested really popular threads could be refreshed monthly to make it easier for newer posters.

    EE has been dreadful for the last 3 years. I gave it up completely when the whole diabolical storyline with Lola and her baby aired, and social services being depicted as Gestapo.

    I can’t fathom who gets paid to write such tripe. A programme that relies on storylines like the phantom s*agger and Kat’s miserable face and infidelities, Max and Tanya’s 10000s make up/break up, the permanently retarded Kim that supposedly is meant to be humour, Sharon and her little lord Fauntelory, Phil and Max being these irresistible letharios etc, has lost all appeal and doesn’t deserve the money spent on it.

    BBC can use that money elsewhere to produce quality programmes such as drama’s where they excel.

    They could, I suppose. But those dramas probably still wouldn't get half the viewing figures EE does. Like it or not-it is very, very popular. As is Coronation Street, which I personally can't stand. A lot of people like their soaps.

    If I might be permitted to quote an exert from my blog on the December 31st episode:

    "And people say that Eastenders is too gritty and depressing... Oh, wait - they're probably talking about the soul crushing depression and existential despair that it causes and they're right - this is like looking into the abyss and it looking back into you."

    The joys of Walford, eh? Sharon managed to forget she was infertile and that allowed her to have her kinder egg kid... but yes, she spent the first week on the Square struggling to spend a second with him not on her apron strings and now she barely seems to remember he exists. CONSISTENCY!

    Equal miracle was how Phil diagnosed the facecream, coconut facecream iirc, was the cause since it was only a passing scene. Phil must have been very observant of what type of facecream Tanya was using in her salon...

    Given that Eastenders is still terrible, one can only assume that in time this thread shall become populated by a similar amount of overwhelming negativity... I'm not sure I see the necessity in starting a new thread, it's not as if anyone ever reads a thread from start to finish before contributing...

    But hey, it's a thread on the interwebs, it's not as if they burned down the place we were trash talking the show or anything.

    Ofcourse it is. There have been positive posts in the past. regarding Jay and the fact he is a good actor amoungst others, just can't think of them off the top of my head, I am sure they will come to me later. I thought the night Lola's baby was whisked away the actress who plays her was pretty good.

    Feel free to elaborate, I'm genuinely interested to know what good points Eastenders has raised.

    About as close as it has come in the past few months is the recent discovery of stolen goods by Bianca, who decided to turn them over to the police despite being impoverished and that is really more remarkable because of the fact it was an Eastenders character not immediately acting criminally and didn't even really DO anything with the potentially interesting moral issue for Bianca.

    Who's to say the thread doesn't reflect the general tone of the viewership? We can't really say one way or the other. I personally find the stories badly flawed but if someone else like but if other people like the programme then fair play to them.

    The fact that so many here criticize elements of the plot in minute detail suggests that they follow the programme very closely. They may not state what the producers want to hear but they do at least state where they feel the quality could be improved. I'd take the posts on here more at face value than the comments left on websites like Digitalspy, which just seem to be love-ins for the most overblown and silly plot lines, no matter how ludicrous they get.

    And if you feel you want to post something in favour of the show, you do that. Don't let anyone else put you off. The message board is called "points of view" not "agree with me, or else". smiley - winkeye

    I would timidly venture to suggest that if the overwhelming negativity of the EastEnders thread actually reflected the views of the majority, it wouldn't still get the kind of viewer numbers it does. It seems to me more likely that those who want to complain just tend to be more vocal than those who are generally happy with it.

    That may be the case, but here someone with a different point of view can expect hardly anything fiercer than "you must be joking", in contrast to some other threads (Doctor Who springs to mind), where posters daring to express other opinions can be sure to be confronted with insulting, derisive and ferociously contemptuous remarks.
    Besides,"balance" is not a given, a programme may very well evoke more positive than negative remarks - or vice versa.

    I miss the old thread, I can't even see a link to it. I really can't see the need for a new one, as long as the last post link functions correctly. Now I have to change my bookmarks as well.

    A lot of sighing going on this evening (Sharon, Joey). How very dramatic. If someone had a stethoscope, it would present a perfect opportunity for some interesting chest auscultations.

    To reflect my opinions: wackywalford.blogspo...

It seems to me more likely that those who want to complain just tend to be more vocal than those who are generally happy with it. 
    Demonstrably false, if you've ever heard of Howard Stern (a DJ who was one of those for who the term "shock jock" was coined), surveys into his audience showed that those who DISLIKED him actually listened to him longer.

    Not to mention that Eastenders viewership has been plummeting in the last few years and it is not just consistently being beaten by long time rival Coronation Street but is now also regularly getting beaten by Emmerdale and this is despite an almost unprecedented amount of publicity and being place right in the heart of prime time on BBC1.

    That may be the case, but here someone with a different point of view can expect hardly anything fiercer than "you must be joking", in contrast to some other threads (Doctor Who springs to mind), where posters daring to express other opinions can be sure to be confronted with insulting, derisive and ferociously contemptuous remarks. 
    The Doctor Who threads can get a trifle zealous, can't they... but they are fairly evenly balanced between those that think Moffat can do no wrong and anyone who disagrees is too stupid to see his genius and those who think Moffat isn't clever, just complicated and those who think otherwise are pretentious pseudo-intellectual fanboys.

    While I am relentlessly negative about Eastenders that is only because I have cause to be. Few aspects of the show aren't riddled with fault and as I've mentioned several times, these days even issues of audio quality, editing and direction have started to crop up with increasing frequency.

    Besides,"balance" is not a given, a programme may very well evoke more positive than negative remarks - or vice versa. 
    I like to think that when an episode does something praiseworthy that I will actually acknowledge it. I'm not a remorseless unthinking hate machine after all, I'm a thinking conduit of living hate.

    But in all seriousness, if people want to offer an alternative opinion and they're willing and capable of articulating why an episode is good, I'm happy to see that...

    Well, you see, I don't agree. I think there are often good points made by the programme and good points that could be made. But you all seem to have so much almost hate of the programme I don't understand why you all watch it anyway. I was in favour of a new Eastenders thread hoping it would be more balanced, but so far it isn't.

     
    Have been trying very hard to think of something positive to say about last night's output. Failed completely apart from the fact that Baby Lexi looked quite cute tucked into the elbow of her single, middleaged, ex-con/alcoholic/drug addict carer.
    Ignorance must be bliss in her case.
    If I were Lauren and Joey I would be hard pushed to think of a reason to go on living, they must be the most miserable young singles in the UK.
    Still waiting to hear your "balancing" positives Doversoul smiley - smiley
