  1. Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

    Emmerdale is awful right now. Absolutely awful! I can't buy into Laurel and Bob, because I don't believe for a moment that they love each other. I hate what theyr're doing to Doug and Diane, just to get Doug and Brenda to hook up! And don't even get me started on how the writers have thrown subtlety completely out the window and are sweating bullets in their relentless efforts to rehabilitate and redeem Debbie.... I don't know if it works on others but all it does for me is making me resent that vicious little cow more than ever. I hate that bitch with the fire of a thousand suns!

    Thanks for the tip. But since I'm one of those strange () people who doesn't have a facebook account I can't see much of it.
  3. Christopher Cazenove as Ben Carrington

    Wasn't Ben supposed to be the younger, more irresponsible brother? Personally I felt that Christopher Cazenove worked well in that role, but that's just my opinion.
  4. Roy Thinnes as Gary Ewing on Knots Landing

    Wasn't it an important part of the Gary/Valene story that they both were very young when they had Lucy?
  5. The Politics Thread

    We're having some political turmoil here as well. We have a general election this year and in several polls the Swedish Democrats, a party with their roots in neo-nazism, has been the second largest party with 20%. It's frightening. Just recently one of their top representatives, who is also the vice speaker in our parliament, said that the Sami people (our equivalent to the aborigines and native Americans) and the Jews are not Swedish. Statements like this is frighteningly similar to what the nazis said during the 30s. He has tried to back-track, but it clearly shows that despite their efforts to make themselves more mainstream, their true colours are barely hidden beneath the surface.

    I can hardly believe this is happening in a supposedly civilised country in 2018. Where the hell is this world heading?!
  7. World Cup 2018

    Quite a few surprises already: Argentina vs Iceland 1-1 Germany vs Mexico 0-1 Brazil vs Switzerland 1-1

    There's no doubt in my mind that a lot of things would be completely different if HRC had been elected instead of the moron who currently sits in the White House.
  9. Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

    Back then the show wasn't on six times a week though, only twice! And I think that's part of the problem with the show now. There's too many episodes to fill, and too many characters to write for. They should cut back on both episodes and cast and then maybe we could get a tighter and better show. Unfortunately that would probably mean that we would be left with a show consisting only of Dingles.....

    Not me, that's for sure. I would almost be surprised if he could point out North Korea on a map......
  11. The Tennis Thread

    I quite liked seeing Steffi steamroll everyone. She was never a bore like Nadal is, and she wasn't quite as dominant as Federer/Nadal have been over the past decade. She had competition from Sanchez Vicario, Seles, Pierce, Sabatini etc And for some reason women's tennis has always been more interesting than men's. Probably because the women don't hit as hard or serve as hard as the men so there's more play in women's matches.
