  1. DAYS: February 2018 Discussion Thread

    Ok so I’m only onto 11th January but does anyone else feel that the storylines with Eve and the Kiriakis’ and Vivian/Stefan O are quite similar? I.e outside people trying to take over companies/dynasties?

    I've been in Australia for a month and I'm behind 31 episodes. I won't let Days defeat me though, I will defeat Days. Bear with.

    Oh gosh, I guess I'll watch it anyway I'm gonna watch Days first though.

    I've been in Australia for a month so I haven't seen EE. Has it been any good?

    Nice treat for long time fans.

    The show is chaos at the moment.

    I thought it was nice that Silent Night was being played while Abe had his monologue, it felt emotional, I quite liked Theo waking up which has been the only part I liked. I struggled to feel empathy for JJ as Theo deserved to be shot as far as I'm concerned as he was committing a crime and it looked like he was holding a gun. I did like the JJ/Gabi scenes as well. Will and Sonny are getting on my nerves after getting off to a good start. I think Paul is the strongest gay character so his absence makes the story feel less significant. Al the business crap with Kate, Chad, Andre, Brady, Eve....well I couldn't care less, it's literally fast forward material. Though I do love Kate and anything with her in is watchable.

    There's little doubt I imagine that the Max/Stacey thing was rushed in time for Christmas Day, and it's a shame there was no build up. I agree that it makes sense Stacey would be bored, and I don't find it difficult to believe that she could be tempted by Max but the story could do with being a lot less blatant and written with more subtlety. Perhaps it would have been more interesting if it was just a kiss, initiated by Max, and Stacey hesitated for a moment. Stacey still could have said that she felt tempted and likes the idea of feeling free but wouldn't risk her marriage to Martin. We then could have done without the theatrics over the next few months between Martin and Stacey before they inevitably get back together, they could have played on the Max/Stacey connection and still have had Tanya jumping to conclusions about them. I do think Max and Stacey have undeniable chemistry but unless they're going to go the whole hog and let them have a relationship together I don't see the point narratively of them sleeping together other than for cheap thrills. I did like Max telling Tanya that Stacey was the love of his life which I could believe, but the writing decisions always seem so short-sighted. Until now I've expected Max to be written out as they've exhausted him so much and I don't see any way they can keep him on the show, do you think they honestly feel differently? It would be a mistake IMO to keep Max around now, especially as I do wish everyone involved in Max being sent to prison showed some remorse because as it stands Max is being painted as the one in the wrong and evil and while of course his actions are deplorable, Ian, Phil and everyone else involved need to be held accountable for their actions too and this needs to be shown on screen in order for those characters to feel less damaged. I get the impression this is what SOC was aiming for but JY's interpretation hasn't seemed to include this; no idea whether the way it's coming across was always intended to be this way but I always viewed SOC's vision of Max's revision as a way to reverse some of the damage done to so many characters as a result of the Lucy storyline. I do get the impression I'll be taking a break from the show soon. I did enjoy the Christmas episodes despite the flaws, but if I carry on watching once the casting changes take place it will be out of curiosity to see how crap it can get.

    I'm struggling with the JJ story.
  10. EastEnders: Discussion Thread

    I totally agree @BetterForgotten. The show is living in the past. At least SOC was keen to move things forward even if he did get it wrong many times.
  11. EastEnders: Discussion Thread

    Very unlikely. Not sure if I'm that interested going forward considering all the dud casting changes though.
  12. DAYS: December 2017 Discussion Thread

    Those Will and Sonny scenes where he's trying to convince Will to come and live with him were hot And you could tell the actors were enjoying those scenes. I felt the chemistry between them which I wasn't expecting and I was fully on the Will/Paul bus before now. I'm finding the show a bit boring other than them but I like Ciara though. I like Hope's son too, I've not seen him before. I'm convinced Rafe should be axed.
  13. DAYS: December 2017 Discussion Thread

    Rafe and Hope are boring the hell out of me.
  14. Neighbours: Discussion Thread

    The Australian government has begun to contribute funding towards Neighbours as a production to keep it running, as it was deemed too important to the Australian film industry to lose. http://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/neighbours/news/a845914/neighbours-axe-government-funding/
  15. Which soaps do you watch?

    Thanks for the info. Did you expect Days, GH etc to be the last ones standing back then?
