  1. It's wash, rinse and repeat with this show now. It's not that long ago that Lachlan held Rebecca captive, and now they're repeating the same tired story with Pierce and Vanessa.  :rolleyes:

    If this was the reason they brought Pierce back then why bother?


    And they finally did what I expected right from the start...put Jamie with Belle. I guess I should give them some credit, because it took them a little longer than I thought, but here we are......

    Why does every story on this show have to involve a Dingle?   <_<

    I guess it's a bit hard to avoid though since that wretched family dominates the show so completely.... :angry:


    I'm really starting to lose interest due to the Dingle dominance. It's more of a chore to watch now, and life is too short to waste watching something you don't enjoy anymore. It hurts a little since I have so many fond memories of this show, and it's been a part of my life for so long.   :(

    I think it may have just been an attempt to honor the show's past. He also made sure to talk some about Stan Richards in his Calendar interview. 



    But in a post made to celebrate his 25 years of working on Emmerdale it would have been more fitting to post a picture of himself and someone like Steve Halliwell (Zak) or Paul Loughran (Butch), since they were the ones he worked with.

    Henry had been dead for 3 years when Sam first showed up, and he never appeared in an episode together with Amos either, (Amos only appeared in 6 episodes after Sam made his debut, in June and July 1995, and Sam was absent during those episodes) so why choose to post a picture of them on this occasion?


  3. James Hooton (Sam Dingle) celebrates 25 years on the show, and does it by posting a picture of himself with a photo of Amos and Mr. Wilks.....


    Why?  :huh:

    Sam is not particularly connected to the Woolpack, and both Amos and Henry were gone from Emmerdale before he turned up.

    And it goes without saying that Sam isn't in the same league as those two Emmerdale icons.   <_<


    Furthermore, the fact that this useless character has lasted 25 years is not something to celebrate...quite the opposite in my opinion.  :angry:
