I was thinking about the effort it takes to blend storylines in soaps as I was catching up on a week’s worth of Corrie and Emmerdale. The producers and writers only have about 30 minutes to tell characters’ stories and to keep us entertained. Coronation Street, Emmerdale, and Hollyoaks have managed to do that consistently. However, my favorite, EastEnders, is still trying to find that “30-Minute Magic”.Continue reading
I’m enjoying #StuartHighway even w/his dark behavior & emotional outbursts. I would hate to find out that he sexually assaulted/raped #TinaCarter when she was younger. Redemption won’t be an option. #EastEnders https://t.co/0dGvuZyw0F — BovaryCee ♋️??? (@BovarysComplnt) July 8, 2018 Before we get too deep into the summer, we need to …

Yasss! Dirk Gently, Holistic Detective Agency is finally back! I’ve been waiting for Season 2 on Hulu. I enjoyed the original BritVersion and this reboot is pretty good. Glad I noticed the new episodes today. It was a great break after today’s World Cup Games (still shocked about Messi). I like the quirky humor and the supernatural theme in the episodes. The show also appeals to my morbid sense of humor. Seasons 1 and 2 are now on Hulu, so enjoy. By the time you read this, I will have binge-watched half the episodes.
EastEnders Phil Mitchell (Steven McFadden) did his best to convince Kim Fox-Hubbard (Tameka Empson) not to trust DI Ainsworth. He even told Kim that “He was trying to be nice,” when warning her about Ainsworth. That made me giggle. (I actually laughed out loud and interrupted my cat’s nap.) The look on the Fox Sisters’ faces was priceless.
Nice isn’t a word I would associate with Phil. It’s rare that we see a full smile on his face. Phil Mitchell being nice? Never! But he continued with his story hoping it would charm the Fox Sisters… It didn’t work…Continue reading
Tonight the British Soap Awards were live and loud. I’ve been waiting for almost a month to see if my votes counted. I wasn’t disappointed. My favorite show, EastEnders, won three awards which were more than I anticipated. However, I need to recognize Hollyoaks for their wins tonight. On the hierarchy of British Soaps, Hollyoaks is the half-sibling no one wants to recognize. That’s a shame because the actors and the storylines are awesome.Continue reading
