  1. The Doctors

    Amy, a huge belated thank you for letting me know about this! I scanned through June 1974 and was deeply disappointed to see that Dr. Ann was in the operating room for the delivery but had no actual scenes with Toni directly before or after. However after patiently scanning further episodes I finally came upon the July 31st episode when Dr. Ann went into Toni’s hospital room to tell her that Michael Paul’s condition had improved. AT LAST! It's not a particularly lengthy scene but it's so obvious how close Geri and Anna Banana were off camera. THANKS! Now I have the episode on "forever," barring removal. Ah, the beauty of the internet! Sorry if it has been mentioned here before but Lin Bolen, the NBC Daytime chief, was the inspiration for the character of Diana Christensen played by Faye Dunaway in Network. I can't help but wonder if Bolen "finished up sex" while yammering on about ratings!

    I like your ideas, Carl. I know this won’t be the first time I’ve posted this but I really hope Emily Head (Rebecca) scoots over to EE to play the baby sister of another Chrissie. Hey, they can call her Rebecca, too, since there’s nobody on the show with that name at present. I’ve always thought Head resembled Tracy-Ann Oberman physically and especially vocally. I can see Rebecca going to work for either Mel at E20 or Kat (at The Albert?) to pave the way for her her big sister showing up and taking over either business.

    Laila Morse is as atrocious now as she ever was. I’m amazed she’s back considering she apparently had terrible problems remembering her lines which slowed down production. I doubt age has improved her memory skills.

    He’s also of Romanian heritage! I had a friend who was a friend of his family’s and twenty years ago I went up to their lovely farm upstate and had my first plate of Romanian pastrami. And about ten years ago Assante flew to Bucharest to be one of the judges for the Miss Romania pageant. I bet he had quite a time there-and got into a lot of trouble, if you catch my drift.

    Lauren White is now one of the producers of Homeland, too!

    Something tells me that Moira will end up being murdered by Phelan. In the past few weeks Liz has been inserted into Eileen/Pat’s orbit and Moira is in Liz’ orbit so...

    The heist storyline is leading into a drugs storyline and that one’s even worse.

    Friday’s episodes were unbearable between Billy’s withdrawal and Craig’s OCD. The kid who plays Craig is sweet but enough is enough, he has to go. They should send his character off for further police training somewhere.

    Cain’s treatment of Simon is exactly the reason why it’s so utterly ludicrous for Moira to go back to him. He’s a relentlessly thuggish piece of shite.

    In some ways it’s even worse than it was under SOC. It’s completely rudderless now.

    I’m not too sure about that, Carl.I’m thinking Charley Webb might want to spend more time with her hot hubby and toddlers so maybe this could be her exit storyline. I think it will take several months to play out, though, maybe she could end up finishing filming in April or May.

    I admit I found Freddie Jones’ hamminess was hard to take at times but he was affecting in last night’s episode. I’m assuming Sandy and the character played by Wendy Craig will go off into the sunset together so that would be nice. I’d hate it if they killed him off onscreen.

    Was trying to remember how much Steph knows about Phelan. She obviously knows about the garage fire but does she know about the circumstances around Michael’s death and how Phelan laughed at him as he lay dying? Does she know about the flat scam? I guess one way to insure Todd staying away from Weatherfield will be the full flat scan reveal which won’t make him look so hot. I suspect it will be what makes Billy turn away from him for good.

    I guess it was Charley Webb’s instinct for Debbie to punch Simon in the chest in that scene in the truck on last night’s episode but it was ludicrous that he didn’t respond by slamming her head against the window. God knows she deserved it.

    She did still say it, though. And I think we were meant to believe it. I would buy it if she wasn’t so resolute about Cain over the past few months. Everything she was telling Faith and others was the truth-they could never work long term as a couple. She will always have a firm grip on what’s right and acceptable behavior and he won’t.

    Moira gave Charity total credit on Friday night’s episode! That’s what the show wanted us to think-that Charity sealed the deal for Moira and Cain. I’m just finding this latest twist so incomprehensible and out of character for Moira that I almost believe that one of the big storylines for Emmerdale in 2018 is a Faux Moira storyline. At moments I wondered if this is not actually Moira but an imposter.
  17. Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

    No, Carl, I’m not done with the show quite yet but come on, you KNOW Moira and Cain will break up AGAIN at some point in the future. Because Moira has been right for months-she’s insisted that unless Cain has truly evolved their relationship can’t ever work. Maybe because his issues with Faith has been somewhat resolved he will evolve but I doubt it. The show is way too fond of his bad boy antics.
  18. Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

    Moira and Cain again? Really? I was certain the last scene tonight was his fantasy but she really did show up in that gleaming white coat, face all angelic, telling him they’d be spending the rest of their lives together. All because of a visit from Charity of all people? What a load of shite.

    Denise McCormack has a long term contract on the show? I think Ciara is only a short term role.

    Enough of Lachlan already, it’s way past time to send him off to prison or to a mental facility. He and Belle have always had zero chemistry and his facial grimaces drive me nuts.
  21. Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

    To do what? If anyone’s a lifer on that show it’s her. I doubt I’ll ever see her in the West End stage in my lifetime.

    And she was once sister-in-law to Laila Morse via Morse’s brother Gary Oldman. Their son Alfie had both parents nominated for an Oscar today!

    I thought it was good, the montage at the end with Anna finally looking directly at “us” before the slat being shut was excellent. Bye, Debbie. I’m guessing she’ll end up getting stabbed to death in prison after opening her big gob too many times? I wonder how it would time out with Phelan’s “comeuppance.”

    I noticed there was a scene in the Vic this past week with Fake Les and Patrick playing chess. I guess by the summer we’ll know if it’s Keegan or Bernadette who turns out to be something of a prodigy via the chess book Fake Pam gave them at Christmas. It would be interesting to watch Keegan struggle with the knowledge he’s really good at something he considers “uncool.”

    RIP Abi Branning. She really would have loved The Greatest Showman.
