Eastenders catch-up needed

I’m the OP of the EastEnders on Britbox US thread.

I’ve been behind in my real-time viewing and now the episodes from October have been removed from Britbox. I’m lost.

Can my fellow EE fans please catch me up?

I left off where it was revealed that Terry is actually Tom Cotton looking to swindle Sonia. Keegan had already cheated on Tiffany with Dottie. Ruby was arrested based on Jean’s false accusation. Mick and Linda left Waldorf to stay with Linda’s mother.

Please help me, DLers. You are my only hope.

This is slightly off topic, and I'm not trying to hijack your thread, OP. I just wanted to mention an oddity from my past. I was a dedicated Corrie (Coronation Street) fan for several years. Vancouver, BC had a channel that would broadcast an episode Mon - Fri five months or so behind schedule. On Sunday they would broadcast the previous week's episodes in an omnibus edition.

The odd thing is that I was enamoured of the show. Then, after watching the episode where Lloyd chairs quiz night at The Rovers, & Norris brought his brother, of whom he was jealous, I couldn't watch any more episodes. It's like the asparagus stalk broke. That's all I had to say.

Wh. show is more popular in the UK, EE or Corrie?

EE, I’m pretty sure.

I must really be behind. I don't know who any of those people are. In the episodes I'm watching, Pauline just returned from an extended visit with her brother Kenny in Australia, only to learn that Arthur was fucking Mrs. Hewitt while she was away. Pauline lashed out at Kathy for keeping it a secret from her. Those were the highlights of recent episodes.

R2 Corrie is more popular than EE in the UK; so is Emmerdale.

In fact, more recently, there have been weeks when one or even two episodes of EE don't make it into the Top 50 shows of the week.

For the last reported week of consolidated ratings (December 6-12) -- Six episodes of Corrie averaged 5.18 million viewers. Six episodes of Emmerdale averaged 4.65 million viewers. EE's average for two episodes came in at 3.54 million viewers, but the average for the week would be lower, since two of the episodes didn't make it into the Top 50 report, which means both of those episodes were something at or below 3.26 million, since that was the cut-off number for No. 50 that week.

Consolidated ratings include the sum of: Live Broadcast + Viewing on Same Day As Live + Time-Shifted.

It's really difficult to give a catch-up on several months of a soap - it would be easier if you would ask specific questions.

Broadly, in terms of the major storylines over the past few months there has been Gray finally being rumbled as a serial killer, and being arrested. Bernie selling her baby to Stuart and Rainie but Stuart hates the baby and wants to give him back, Linda was still boozing but is now trying to get sober and win Mick back from Janine, Ben and Callum were victims of a homophobic attack so Ben went vigilante and starting beating up random straights including his own nephew Peter, and then he got flirty with Lewis the Irish barman at Kathy's gay bar and went back to his flat for sex but had second thoughts when Callum sent him a photo of him and his daughter but Lewis pinned him down and fucked him anyway - portrayed as rape basically but Callum found out and assumed Ben had just cheated on him so dumped his sorry ass.

Sam Mitchell came back into it and is doing Phil's dirty work for him while he's behind bars, she's blackmailed Denise into stumping up the money Phil gave her so they can buy the club. Jean went absolutely off the rails with her bi polar and tried to drown herself in the sea, she was sectioned but Stacey took her out of the mental hospital and was looking after her at home but Jean thought she was trying to kill her so would only let Lily look after her, who she told had bi polar too so Lily started taking Lithium and poisoned herself with it but was fine, Jean pushed Stacey and she cut herself on some broken bottles and then she passed out in the street. That's all I know so far as I'm not fully up to date myself (have a couple of weeks to catch up on) - apparently Charles and Camilla appear at some point.

Isaac went off to Trinidad to look after Sheree who'd allegedly had a heart attack and Lola found out he was dating someone else via social media.

[quote] In an email, a BBC spokeswoman wrote: “The ‘EastEnders’ episodes that have been carried by just a few public television stations in the U.S. are over 10 years behind current episodes playing out in the U.K., and it is no longer economically viable to provide episodes at this broadcast cadence. We are exploring new distribution models for the U.S. market. We are aware this is disappointing news for fans.”

Stuart was irritating from the moment he showed up. He's gone through so many character changes, bad guy, good guy, bad guy again recently (I mean he hates his baby son and might injure him) that he's unbelievable and unrelatable. Good riddance. I guess his obnoxious grandmother goes too.

Peter had no real story line, he is only eye candy. I wouldn't mind him having a little bicurious action with Jay before he lives. Jay is my new fascination on Eastenders. He needs to become pan and polyandrous to truly bring EE into the 2020s. Come out for Pride month Jay!

Stuart should have been written out after six months but the actor was apparently a huge favorite with the cast and crew so the writers twisted his stories into a pretzel to keep him there.

Does Linda inherit the Vick? She's partial owner, right? That's probably a mistake. Linda's a weak and not very sympathetic character and the Vick traditionally has been one of centers or core of Eastenders. It has not been that way lately. They need to restore that. Perhaps younger owners would better, a real passing on Eastenders to the next generation.

Wendy Richard was fired because she was an unbearable cunt to the production staff as well as the writing team. I do think she had a right to feel that Pauline should remain unmarried and without a man after Arthur died. Instead they saddled her with Jeff (Melanie’s dad) and wasn’t there an episode or two where the Slater dad showed an interest? And then they married her off to Joe Macer, who was quite a wimp (until he grew some balls and thumped her with a frying pan). She would probably been OK with Pauline marrying her gay friend Derek as a sort of companion. Anyway Richard treated the higher ups like shit and they finally retaliated by making Pauline a bitter and vindictive old bitch before killing her off.

Sharon is still going strong, though, and keeps me tuning in.

Pauline was so mean to Kathy in the episode I just watched on my local PBS station. She laced into Kathy for knowing about Arthur's affair with Mrs. Hewitt and not telling her. She read Kathy to filth, and Kathy just stood there like a doormat at took it. Pauline can be such a monster. I do hope she forgives Arthur, since Arthur and Pauline are my favorite couple. How long does Mark's wife Ruth last? I can't understand a word the actress, Caroline Patterson, says, and she's such a pill.

How ridiculous yet predicable they set Kat up as the new boss of Phil's empire just to give the actress something to do. The writers really don't give Sharon enough to do, no way would she be spoken to like that "Why is it everyone around you ends up dead or vanishing into thin air?" Sharon should have ripped her head off.

The Phil/Kat storyline needs to end.

[quote] For some unknown reason, the BBC, they apparently own the rights to US distribution, pulled the plug months ago.

The BBC produces the show, so of course, they own the rights for distribution ... anywhere. And only about three or four PBS affiliates still ran these old episodes. That's why they pulled the plug.

[quote] In an email, a BBC spokeswoman wrote: “The ‘EastEnders’ episodes that have been carried by just a few public television stations in the U.S. are over 10 years behind current episodes playing out in the U.K., and it is no longer economically viable to provide episodes at this broadcast cadence. We are exploring new distribution models for the U.S. market. We are aware this is disappointing news for fans.”

My feeling is they MIGHT be telling the truth and could be exploring putting the episodes from around the time they cut you off on Britbox or somewhere else for streaming. .. During the production lockdown due to the pandemic, the BBC tried to satisfy current UK viewers by putting what they called "Eastenders 2008" on their streaming service. They'd put up four episodes per week. This initial year was then followed with "Eastenders 2009," and they just began with "Eastenders 2010." So with this effort, they now have over two years of the old show already formatted and ready-to-go for streaming. Why they haven't put these years on Britbox would be the question, since it pretty much matches up with the era where they cut U.S. viewers off who were still watching on PBS.

I an watching Eastenders from the start, am now up to Jan 1988. Much better than today. This has got to be one of the low points. There are no "iconic" actors. The relationships are shallow and unbelievable. It occured to me that people had more depth and better deeper relationships in the past. So today's EE simply represents the present because that's all the writers know.

IIRC, when Eastenders was first shown on PBS, in order to catch up with the UK showings, PBS aired it either every night or a few nights a week for months. It was so long ago, I can barely remember.

by Anonymousreply 142July 2, 2022 1:25 AM

I don't think broadcasting EE was ever a national thing for PBS. As I recall, only about 25 (out of 300+) affiliates carried EE at some point, and each of them put it on when and how they wanted. It never seemed uniform. When in the L.A. area, I don't remember KCET ever airing it. Meanwhile, the KOCE affiliate tired various schedules with the show. They even cancelled it once, then brought it back, They finally ran four episodes like an omnibus on Sunday afternoon. I remember some ex-pats in the area used to go to a British pub-type restaurant and watch it there on a big screen TV in a banquet room. That PBS affiliate gave it up many years ago.

I think EE was also on BBC America for awhile, but was cancelled due to low viewership. DISH satellite TV also tried to air EE in the U.S. as a special PPV selection. Again, it was given up due to low subscriber interest.

Of course she would call his brother! Then Kat takes Phil back even though she rejected him when he said the same things maybe 12 hours previously. I guess they may go for a quad with Alfie/Sharon working together to break up P/K and then catching feelings but honestly the characters are easily 20 years too old for a wacky scheme like that.

Washes up among the litter

They haven't confirmed R256 but it would make sense to leave it open. I haven't watched it in years but he was once very popular with viewers and a return storyline in the future might be a ratings grabber when their ratings fall in the shitter yet again.

A few years ago they drowned Ronnie and Roxy and this was widely seen as a big mistake, as they too were very popular and the deaths felt gratuitous.

I believe Mick will be mistaken for a Syrian refugee whose mastery of Estuary English and lack of Arabic will be explained away by the emergency lung transplant he required after downing. He will be repatriated to the Dordogne where he will take a job in an auberge and marry the owner, a leathery yet vital widow called Aurélie. They will live happily together until Christmas 2037 when Keanu, on a cycling holiday with Albie, recognises him and informs him that his daughter Annie has been kidnapped by white slavers.

R265 they only have 2 options, either he's dead or presumed dead. He isn't going to reappear so the music marked the actor's exit. If he isn't dead and the character comes back, viewers will have forgotten by then.

There was a pub guv'nor named Mick

Who had a big ol' hairy dick

He stuck it up his "L"

Making dirty prozzie Janine well jel'

And drowned him in the sea

Now Mick was a Carter

And with God he did barter

"If I'm saved and make it ashore

I'll do the dirty on that whore"

But when he floated to French sand

He found himself on remand

Cause his cockney blether no one could understand

So Mick found himself detained

From his darling "L" he was restrained

For being an "illegal" from Albania!

Wiki says Freddie is 18. If that's the case, I don't think there'd be any coming back from an 18-year old having sex with a 12-year old.

Regardless of the circumstances, given her age, whomever had sex with her committed statutory rape. If the boy is also underage, then they probably wouldn't prosecute, since Lily would be guilty of same. As I recall, that's how they handled the recent Charlie (14) and Ella (13) underage sex-pregnancy story on Hollyoaks.

by Anonymousreply 275January 3, 2023 9:23 AM

Watching clips from older episodes, from the late 90s to mid 00s, it's shocking the difference in quality of writing, acting and directing between then and now. The show used to be a weekly drama with watercooler moments, even the advertising used to be based on this reputation "everyone's talking about it", now it's just a soap with ghosts of its past glory floating about like zombified versions of their old characters. It's a shame to see as the BBC used to be very proud of the show but it feels like they're embarrassed by it these days. Cut back on the episodes, up the budget and put some effort into the advertising and I'm sure the ratings would reflect this.

by Anonymousreply 276January 3, 2023 3:25 PM

I agree with all, R276.

R273, I think the twist might be that Freddie isn’t necessarily all “good.” I’d like him to actually have known about his biological father. The show absolutely needs to bring in Kacey Ainsworth as Mo for at least a week to do the reveal, though. I gather the actor playing Freddie is going on a break soon, don’t know for how long.

Speculation is that Linda Henry (Shirley) is now off contract and might not return until the end of the year at the earliest.

Who had a drunken, clapped,-out old farter

At Christmas she lost her beloved son Mick

Drowned, like her bad son Deano Wick

Poor Shirl' reached the end of her wick

Screwed her face then trashed the Vic

She decided she was done in the square

For life was as wrecked as her hair

She dried her racoon eyes

Zipped her boots right up to her thighs

Then wandered off all on her todd

With a dog, her G-strings and some vod

Nish rots in prison for bit before breaking out next February, during the 39th anniversary, where he tries to get his revenge before getting killed off himself in some accident in full view of everyone so that they know it wasn't under any suspicious circumstances. None of the characters ever have to worry again and they can all move onto the next whodunit.

Max Bowden has issues. His grandad and his agent died in quick succession of Covid then his best friend died of an aneurysm or sudden brain cancer a few months before his wedding. Then in his grief he knocked up then left an older woman.

He seems very needy.

And Cindy is finally back on the square. Fur flies next week.

I'm shocked she's only just back, they've been running a promo with her in it for weeks.

I love Cindy - hope they don’t screw this up.

She's back on the square! Went directly to Kathy and the fur flew!

It’s fun to have Cindy back but Michelle Colllins just doesn’t seem to have her heart in it. Like she’s almost embarrassed to be playing those scenes.

The Kathy brawl was good, but the George scenes fell flat.

by Anonymousreply 384August 30, 2023 12:24 AM

REALLY flat. Zero chemistry between Collins and Salmon. It was a lot of fun to see Fatboy in the flashback, though.

And I’ll say this again (I think)-it’s absolutely ludicrous that Cindy first hid out from the Ford gangster family in SPAIN. Hadn’t Mary and the other handlers ever heard of Costa Del Crime? Give me a fucking break. Such lazy writing. Cindy would much more likely have been sent somewhere like Guam. Or, in Europe, somewhere like Romania.

It’s so weird, because I think it wad the writing Michelle Collins was given, especially in that bit before they transitioned to the flashback sequence.

That look on Sharon’s face, though…

Tonight was better, but still kabuki. Best thing about it all is Kathy's been pulled out of the torpor she's been in lately and is back to her old feisty self.

by Anonymousreply 387August 30, 2023 8:47 PM

I agree about Kathy but this Rose/Cindy shit doesn’t work at all. She doesn’t have any chemistry with the two girls, either. It just doesn’t work and Collins makes it painfully clear what she thinks of having to act this shit. All her line readings and facial expressions look and sound like they’re forced out of her with a crowbar. And she’s a good actress.

The bones were good with the crowd at The Vic and it was a cute move to use Jade Goody’s son as the expository vessel for the Beale’s backstory, like it’s national lore.

Agree that Cindy’s scene with the girls is bad, but better with Anna than Gina (sp), who seems a bit weaksauce.

Speaking of weaksauce, WTF with Sharon and Ian just picking it right up again? Shezza did have a point, but I’d still l want to keep my distance.

by Anonymousreply 389August 31, 2023 6:52 AM

Hah, R389, I laughed when Sharon was equivocating what she did with what Cindy did. Definitely not the same thing. I hope Cindy is the one who tells Kathy that Sharon tried to poison her son with a Christmas pudding.

Rocky is being written out. Good. He was a poor man’s Alfie, no reason for him to be there at the same time. Brian Conley and Shane Richie are the exact same types, only in different age groups. I hope as a result of Rocky’s departure Kathy finally becomes a bitch for a while and her first target is Sharon.

LOVING Suki these days. I think she's playing a long game.

Cindy going after Bobby in Thursday’s episode came from absolutely nowhere. When she was first reintroduced over the past few months Peter or somebody mentioned that she knew that Bobby murdered Lucy by accident and was OK with it. Was the scene when Cindy found out that Bobby had attacked Jane with a hockey stick cut? Very bad writing.

Since PBS took EastEnders off the air couple of years ago, I lost interest, but just scrolling through this thread, I’m wondering how is Cindy back? I thought she was dead.

by Anonymousreply 394September 25, 2023 5:55 PM

R394, they went the Witness Protection route. Cindy became an informant and grassed on her jail cell roommate Jackie who was a member of an evil crime family. I guess the cops had Ian identify a dummy or something, haha. Anyway Cindy was relocated to Spain and ran a bar in Marbella (where absolutely no dodgy crime folk from the UK are, haha). That’s where she lived as Rose Knight, married with two daughters.

Dean Wicks appears again next week, apparently. But where the fuck is Shirley? I want her and Cindy to share some scenes.

by Anonymousreply 398October 27, 2023 6:42 PM

No one had to identify Cindy as she 'died' in prison and wouldn't need formal identification. Just makes no sense Cindy wasn't able to take her baby (Cindy Jnr) with her.

I think Dean rapes Cindy, she murders him and he’s the dead body at Christmas. But each of The Six think someone else did it. Denise thinks Amy did it, for example.

by Anonymousreply 413December 5, 2023 9:36 PM

I think Jack is the dead guy downstairs and Dean is the dead guy upstairs and The Six use all the commotion about Jack’s dead body as a way to let them somehow dispose of Dean’s body.

Dead guy upstairs? I’m just familiar with the dead guy downstairs on Xmas Day.

Poor Spain.

Haha, R418, yeah, it’s totally ridiculous. I don’t think Karen or Mitch know any Spanish. Would Immigration let them in? If they had gone somewhere like Wales it would have made more sense. Sendimg them to Spain is justvfuvking lazy writing.
