Not Much to Do with Ballum (EastEnders)

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?

What is Aaron Monroe Hiding? (EastEnders)

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…

T.Lanette

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.)

My BingeBuzz: One Lane Bridge


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.


BingeBuzz: Say I Do (Netflix)

I needed a show like this today. In fact, I have needed it since March when our COVID-19 Lockdown started. It has been a struggle for me to maintain my mood while teaching from home. Since I live with depression, the change in my routine has been a challenge for me. That’s why I was ready to embrace the spirit and joy from Say I Do (Netflix).

This bridal show is about couples who have gone through adversity in their lives and have reached the point where they are ready to get married. Three fabulous and creative gentlemen help them reach their matrimonial goals:

  • Thai Nguyen: Custom Bridal/Suit Designer;
  • Jeremiah Brent: Decor/Interior Designer;
  • Gabriele Bertaccini: Chef/Caterer.

What makes this show unique from other bridal shows is that all three gentlemen share their life experiences and lessons to help these couples embrace and enjoy their special day. I also loved the diversity of the couples that were highlighted.
