    I am a regular watcher of East Enders, but have found the story line has been going down hill recently. Tonight's episode (Monday 9th July) was so stupid that I am seriously thinking of stopping watching it altogether.

    I agree, I've just been watching out of habit and on the of chance Christian and Syed might get a storyline. The Kat affair mystery has got to be one of the most stupid storyline's ever, for me the real mystery is how the writers could possibly think this storyline was a good idea !

    I have watched Eastenders for years, storylines do seem to get silly (to say the least) from time to time.

    However, last nights episode (09.07.12) really made me want to switch off and never watch this soap again. Talk about insulting the viewers intelligence.

    Please get RID of the Masood's, I cannot stand any of them, Syed is only just tolerable. AJ??? what is the point of him.

    Who's idea was it to make references to SHOLAY!!! Leave Sholay well alone, it is a Bollywood classic, please dont ruin it like this, Amithabh & Dharmendr will be insulted watching the 2 Masood brothers poor attempt at acting ot some of their scenes.

    Seriously get rid of the of the Masood's and all will be well with Albert Square, again.

    I also have been disappointed with EastEnders recently and last night was really the worst episode I've seen in a long time unfortunately. The Masoods are my favourite family, but having Masood and AJ running around like schoolkids was really silly. The angst between Syed and Christian was at least partly realistic, but now it's over, they've been sidelined, while so much time has been invested in the character of Derek, who is completely unrealistic, walking around like some kind of Kray twin. I know that people complain if it's all "doom and gloom," but on the other hand, yesterday's episode was just too silly. And what has happened with Jean and the money? I won't stop watching because I like Syed too much, but I think it's maybe time to only watch when I know he's going to be in it.

    Eastenders your losing viewers and honestly it is getting befetic the new camera structures are driving me mad I know you got a new director but there no good get the old one back now your probabally loading at lease 200 a day

    I'm sorry but i gotta say to anyone that posts negative posts on hear about eastenders are silly. You are obviously not true enders fans. I love the program and have been a fan for years. It's full of laughs as well as the serious topics that they cover. I will admit that i didn't like derek branning at first but now alot of his scenes are quiet funny. It does make me laugh how no one seems to own their own washing machine and that they complain they are skint yet they are in the cafe and pub or go the chippy everyday lol, But thats just eastenders and thats why i love it!!!!

    first of I want to reply to FLICK saying that people who write negative things on here are obviously not true fans of the show is ridiculous.I am a massive Eastenders fan and if me and others don't comment when we think the show isn't going the right way the viewers would like it or don't agree with some think and don't comment about it how are the team at Eastenders going to ever know how we feel about the show and make changes we comment negative things for one reason only that's so hopefully the team at Eastenders will listen and make changes for the better.Now I have got that out the way I have to agree with a lot of people about Mondays episode it was awful aj and masood were suppose to bring a bit of comedy to that episode I guess but it did not work at all I hope there is not more comedy scenes to come from these as it really didn't work comedy works in a soap mostly from characters who are not trying to be funny dot for example.The show is just not set like it use to be years ago in the 80s and 90s the scripts were better the characters were more likeable the sets inside and out seemed more real the whole layout of the show has changed now and not for the better and I know Its a long way yet but if we have a 3rd disappointing Christmas episode in a row I'm not going be happy last years was awful anybody have any Idea what the story mite be at Christmas I thought It was going to be that Ben gets found out but not sure now after Tuesdays episode when jay found the picture maybe Ben is going to get caught in the next month or so. I miss having carol and Bianca on the show will be better when they come back Its OK having good story lines in a soap but if you haven't got characters on the show that the viewers really connect with then the story's only work half as well I think that's where Eastenders go wrong a lot of the time they could get rid of 10 - 15 characters and bring in a couple old characters and maybe a new family think that would help the show either way Eastenders you need to do some think
