…there is a difference between sharing an opinion and purposely going after an EP because of something you don’t like on the show. That’s when it becomes a personal attack.
Here we are again saying goodbye to an EastEnders (EE) Executive Producer (EP) and saying hello to a new EP with a new vision for the show. This time our EP, Jon Sen, stayed for three years. He came after John Yorke (2017-2018, 2nd tenure) and Sean O’Connor (2016-2017). During Sen’s tenure, EE has had high points and low points, but overall the show has improved. (Check out Duncan Lindsay’s article.) What hasn’t changed is how some fans respond to the show and the EPs.
EE fans have always been vocal on social media. Fans have an opinion about the storylines, characters, actors, and even the executive producers. Everyone has a right to share their opinions. In fact, I’m sure these opinions have helped to guide the show in some way. However, there is a difference between sharing an opinion and purposely going after an EP because of something you don’t like on the show. That’s when it becomes a personal attack.
The show has made an extra effort to keep the fandom happy and content. So… Has the fandom and the show placed Ballum into a storyline corner? Is there anything left to do with Ballum?
It’s been almost six months since Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) and Halfway (Callum) Highway (Tony Clay) had their non-social distanced wedding. They’ve been living the marital dream while sleeping on an air mattress at Stuart and Rainie’s (Ricky Champ and Tanya Franks) flat. EastEnders did their best to make sure the Ballum Fandom got the dream wedding and romantic ending they were hoping for— starting with the over-the-top cute proposal and ending with the kiss after the “I Do’s”. The show has made an extra effort to keep the fandom happy and contented. So… Has the fandom and the show placed Ballum into a storyline corner? Is there anything left to do with Ballum?
A phone with a text that will erase after 5 seconds… Leaving quickly after calls from a person named Gemma… Washing blood off his hands as he tells his dad he’s found the perfect woman…
It’s only been four EastEnders episodes, but I’m determined to find out what Aaron Monroe (Charlie Wernham) is hiding. He arrived in Albert Square in a flashy suit. The next minute, he was waving cash around and drinking champagne at the Queen Vic. His dad, Harvey Monroe (Ross Boatman), mentioned that Aaron worked in finance and had a fancy London flat. Dana said something about his job being at a lower level. But is that really the case? Aaron told Tiffany Butcher-Baker (Maisie Smith) he works in “Logistics”. 😳 So what details, people, and information is Aaron in charge of handling? (See Merriam-Webster definition for logistics.)
I found this show, One Lane Bridge, today on AcornTV. I love watching crime/mystery dramas as well as shows from New Zealand. This show takes place in Queenstown, New Zealand. It has hidden secrets, supernatural visions, and the new outsider (police officer) in town. There are only six episodes, so it will only take a day to binge watch.
