Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – April 25, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

The Bear and the Crow

I knew she didn’t do what I think others think she did. I won’t lie. That cracked me up when Jimmy relieved Nicola was a Crow. It makes perfect sense. She is smart, never forgets and will peck your eyes out if you mess with her. Jimmy being a bear…hmmm….so many jokes so little time.

I know some don’t like Misty, but she is growing on me in a weird comedy way.  I don’t want to see her around all the time, but if she wants to show up to make a joke, I won’t object.

Graham and Megan

I SHIP IT. I SHIP IT HARD. Graham just gets heart eyes around her. It’s adorable. His voice and eyes get all types of soft around her. Frank is looking at the money and his own job prospects to notice. I can see the build-up to whatever comes next. At least, Graham is already there. Megan gets there in a weirder way.

EITHER WAY. I’m a fan. I SHIP IT. I SHIP IT HARD.

Tracy and David

I wonder if they will have them fall back together just for Leyla to pop up with a baby bump. Make it hurt even more? I’m ok with David and Leyla (DUCKS FROM THE ANGRY FANS) but I LOVE Tracy, and I think David isn’t for her right now. Time for them to move on…for now.

Tracy making the decision to be a spokesperson is great. I think she will do great in this role.  I know it will bring danger with Dales, but I think it will work out. Charity and Vanessa has her back at the end of the day.

The Factory Crew

Frank working the line while Lisa is out? Interesting. They are finally giving him something to do. Good for the show. That could be funny.

Rishi has a type. That sales rep looked like his ex-wife.

Ross vs Dawn

Was Dawn a representation of what Ross could be if he kept up his addiction? Also, I saw shades of Holly in that girl. Maybe a cautionary tale for Ross while moving his plot along? I’m glad Ross didn’t manhandle her too much. He started to and then backed off. Again, I have a problem with Ross and how he treats women. That’s just part of his character though so I’ll try and let it go on here.

I think the Ross is taking pills drama might be done now. In a months (maybe a few weeks time) time he got addicted to pills and decided to drop it. He joins the Aaron crew of … ‘What? Plot device drug abuse? What drug abuse?’ Moment. Got to let it go and move on.

The Butt Munch Saga Continues

Didn’t expect to see Joe, Debbie, Simon, and Graham showing up today. That scene seemed suited for yesterday not today.  Even weirder, they filmed it oddly.  The room was dark and having the lights streaming behind the actors as they talked. Makes me wonder if its to broadcast to the audience that everyone (put Graham) is a rat in a dark place and we are shining a light on the rats as they scurry along.

Graham was great. He hates everything going on with Simon and it showed. Slowly. SLOWLY Graham is moving away from Joe. Move away from Joe, Graham. You are better than this now. You got this. You are in Emmerdale. Spread your wings and fly Graham. *repeat until it happens*

‘It’s Just Speculation!’ 

Graham telling Joe to forget them all. Emmerdale.

Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – April 24, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

The Bartons

I really liked that last shot of the episode.  The one where Ross went right back to that courtroom with Simon. Almost like he made the decision to take justice into his own hands at that “Not Guilty” verdict.  It was a great moment. I won’t be shocked if that gets him a lot of votes (If Michael Parr makes the short list. I personally still want Ryan on there).

I’m glad Pete and Ross made up.  The Bartons are a small bunch now, and they got to stick together.  Ross screwed up, but I think that part is done now. He is going to screw up again, but at least he has Pete by his side. Family to the end.

I figured something wrong would happen during the trial since we have had so many justified verdicts it was time for some injustice. It’s a lot more interesting to see Ross handle it his own way. I’m sure Debbie and Cain aren’t far behind either.

I was confused by Faith being so ‘Pro Ross’ when I don’t think they hung out or talked much but I might have forgotten a few plot points. Either way, I enjoy seeing Faith on screen too.

Jimmy and Nicola

I don’t know what to think about this.  I mean, I know what my friend thinks happened, but I don’t want to think of Jimmy like that. I mean, good for him getting his mojo back and all but yeah. I don’t want to think about Jimmy and sex ever again.  Misty isn’t a bad character, but I think she is a ‘sex therapist’ like Bernice is a ‘certified couples counselor’.

I won’t lie, because I am dead tired, the remote moment between Jimmy and Misty made me laugh like a teenage boy trapped in a 30-year-old woman.   The train metaphor is a bit much, but I appreciate the show trying.

Megan/Graham/Frank

I’m a Megan and Graham shipper. Just saying that right now. I think the two of them had a good vibe between them. Also, Graham looked a bit smitten with her.  Frank seems clueless, but that is ok.  I never hated Megan and Frank. After the Megan and Charity scheme, I never understood why Frank and Megan came back together. It was like they had another story planned and had to leave it behind for some reason.

I think Graham might connect to Megan but also her kid. Graham still has feelings about the kid he never had. Now he might have found a woman he likes but the kid is sick. What is he to do? I’m interested in that story. Graham away from Joe. Dealing with his past and his present and his future. I just like Graham people. I really like Graham. Joe can go die.

Tracy/Harriet/Eric

I do enjoy how supportive Eric is of Tracy.  Same with Frank. Tracy has a ton of support after her ordeal, and I love the show for giving her that. Even better? The show is going to have Tracy rise up and talk about her experiences openly and have it not be in whispers or in shame. Tracy is going to face trouble (Dales is just around the corner) but she has a crew, and I love that she can do anything. Tracy is one of my absolute favorites.

I’m glad to see Harriet back in the mix. Let’s hope we see more of her soon.

On a Personal Note

I’m going to miss Iain MacLeod. He was good for the show. He was. He understood Robert and let him grow. Accept himself for once and figure out how to be alone.  He didn’t need to lean on anyone to be ok. Once he was feeling strong as an individual, he could be with someone who loves him.  He made Robron stronger. He brought Coira back together. He gave us Lydia, Faith, and Graham. He gave us wonderful super soap weeks and helped the show grow past whatever Kate Oates did to it. Now he will clean up her mess on Corrie. I look forward to the new showrunner and what she will bring to the table. My gut tells me it will all be ok. As I always say, time to crack on!

Emmerdale Not So Live but Still Organized – April 23, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

The Bartons/Rhona

I still don’t think Ross and Rhona will be a thing. It’s just another strike into Ross’s dissolving self-esteem.  The fact that Rhona wants to tell Pete what went down is a good thing.  I think she is just worried about Ross and his pill addiction. Again, she has been there, and she went too far before someone put their foot down and helped her.  So, she would want to be that foot for Ross.

Ross stealing from the Vet’s place.  Aaron did the same right? Only to sell not take. Rhona did it too. This place needs better security.

Ross and his relationship to women are just…makes me uncomfortable. The way he talks to them manhandles them, threatens them without thinking.  It creeps me out and for some reason, the fandom doesn’t agree with me. Maybe I’m overthinking it but Ross and women…its not pretty and I’m waiting for someone to call him out on it.

Pete is going off on Ross. *Jerry Springer Noises*

As for Rebecca? I think that is Ross’s only friend and they needed someone on his side during that Pete fight so they stuck her there. Again, they have her in a holding pattern. May? Maybe May will shake that up quite a bit.

Laurel/Arthur

Arthur is upset, and I don’t blame him.  That has to be a blow to him.  Finding out his mother is fallible in life. He sees Ashley as a Saint because he only see’s dad and not the person.  Laurel did mess up, but this might be a good lesson for Arthur that parents are people too. Oh. BOB SUCKS. ALWAYS.

I think she was grieving but I think she, as a grown adult, wanted it too. I do like how the show is talking about how the kids are affected and what will happen to them going forward.  Doug is really great today. Its been a long time since he got to do something other than be grumpy. Good for them giving him a great scene between Laurel and Doug.

Liv/Detention Center

I still like the idea that Liv could do better in there. The warden is on her side. He wants her to succeed. A complete difference from Aarons storyline.

See! Liv is a smart kid! I never doubted her for a second. Keep going kid. You got this.

The Kings

“Lay back and think of England!” – Jimmy

This storyline is weird, but I think it’s the comedy subplot? Maybe? I don’t hate it but I don’t look forward to it either. Its Jimmy and Nicola. They are quite the pair. I will always love them. Even if Jimmy has to lay back and think of England.

Brenda/Bob

Oh Bob. Oh Brenda. That’s all I have to say about it.

Was Bob Ashley’s best friend? When? Did I miss it? Its been awhile, maybe I forgot.

*This is short because I’m dead tired and just want to curl up and nap. As my schedule gets better I’ll be writing longer reviews.*

Emmerdale Not So Live but Stil Organized – April 20, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

The Bartons/Rhona

I felt like this would happen. Ross feeling low and thinking he sees something that isn’t there. Trying for it and getting rude about it when pushed away. I think Rhona just wanted to see Ross smile. Have someone in his corner. Her boyfriend’s brother is in pain and she feels she can help.  It’s very sweet. I bet you Ross will apologize (in his own Ross way) down the line. He is at his lowest point and when he finds out about Debbie and Cain? Who knows what point he will be at next. I never expected the Rhona/Ross thing to go that far and I think I might be right.

Laurel/Arthur

I actually found this interesting. How an affair affects the children.  Usually in soaps that doesn’t come up but I’m glad they are going there.  Arthur is upset and I’d be too at that age. Any age really but that is the age where you think your parents can’t do wrong. They know more and you look up to them. Arthur doesn’t have that now. That time is shattered, and he has entered the point we all get to as teenagers. Our parents are human. They screw up and do stupid things. Laurel has done a very stupid thing. I’m convinced that Laurel is grieving and acting irrationally. She is coming back now and suffering the consequences of her actions. Not just to her reputation (we know its coming) but her relationships with her children. Interesting and different look at this situation. Makes it less common and hurts a lot more to watch.

The actor who plays Arthur is amazing. Lets all bow down to the greatness.

Love the symbolism of a broken Ashley in front of his broken family.

Liv/Prison        

I was secretly hoping that this experience Liv is going through would make her stronger in the end. When this teacher showed up and showed an interest in her and her ability to be better, I got a smile on my face. Finally, she can be focused (no alcohol or other family problems hitting her all the time) and she has a dedicated teacher to help her along. Robert and Aaron can only do so much with the time and money they have. That part of this experience might be great for Liv. A new starting point to a better version of herself.

As someone who was once a teenage girl, I can say her roommate is trouble and Liv needs to be prepared for her to strike at some point. I’m worried she might do something to her pictures but also, she might try something else that we don’t see coming. Either way, being a teenage girl sucks but it has to suck so hard when you are a teenage girl locked up with other teenage girls for a long period of time. I believe Liv will fair better than Aaron and that is what makes her prison storyline different from Aarons.

Brenda/Bob

Brenda. Some advice? Grow a pair and kick Bob out and tell Laurel off in public. Pull off the band-aid. Time to move on. Bob? You are very much in character and you suck. NEXT TOPIC!

Belle/Lachlan/The Little Voices

Those damn little voices. They are getting to Belle. I do love how easily ‘Belle’ makes herself look small when she is stressed or going through something with her mental health. She normally comes across as someone who takes up space and itself apologetic about it. Right now, she is getting smaller and smaller. Paler too.

I’m so conflicted about Lachlan as a character. He is a sexual harasser. He killed two members of his family. Gaslighted them for a month or so. Hid in an attic. Tried to shoot his grandfather.  Went to prison. Crashed his car because he was mad at his mom.  Almost slept with a hooker. Did drugs. Has a smart mouth on him.

Yet, I’m interested in him. I wonder if that is a better version of Corrie’s Phelan character. He has done so much and a lot no one actually knows about and yet we are still watching and waiting to see what happens next with him. What could go wrong and what is going right. Right now everything is going right. Kind of. His little family is falling apart, and Belle is losing it. Just a matter of time now. TICK TOCK GOES THE CRAZY CLOCK!

The Little Things

  • Are the purple coffee cups the reusable cups they are promoting on the sign in front? It’s bugging me and I want one too.

 

  • Jessie and Lydia had a sweet and meaningful conversation. I APPROVE AND I WANT LYDIA AND JESSIE TO BE BEST FRIENDS. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

 

  • I want all of Jessie’s clothes yesterday.

 

  • Also, Jessie was married twice. One husband died, and one was just…trash? Maybe? That is the impression I got.

 

  • No Joe but THAT IS A GOOD THING. Bring on Graham though. I like me some Graham. Should I make the Graham Cracker joke now? NAH…I’ll save that for a special occasion.

 

  • This episode was a bit slow but there was a lot of building of story and character building as well. We need these moments to take a breath and remember there are other characters and they need time too.

 

  • Jimmy. Little Jimmy. *SNORT*

Emmerdale Not Live but Still Organized – April 19, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Hello! I watched the episodes last night but couldn’t write up my thoughts since I couldn’t keep my eyes open.  I’m awake now and I am waiting for my lotion to set into my face so here are so targeted thoughts about Thursdays episodes.

Let’s crack on!

Robron/Liv/Chas

I’m starting with my favorite little family.  I loved that little moment between Chas and Robert.  For awhile now I’ve been wondering about Chas and where she stood with Robert. Yeah, she as fine with it the day after the funeral but she was in her own head at that point. Now that things have been decided and set she now has time to think about things. I like how she likes Robert being there. Roberts reaction to Chas is what made me smile. He looked relieved in a way. He is trying to be the voice of reason and the steady rock this time around and its working. A total difference from another storyline. Everyone is in a better place now.

I still think that Liv should start her own group in prison and demand dominance over the other girls. Just saying, THE CULT OF LIV. THE LIV CULT.

“You’re sick you know that?” “Oh, you love it.” *SMIRK* *There they are. That smirk and flirt. Makes me giggle like I was a girl again.*

Bob/Laurel/Brenda

This remains messy but in a different way than expected. Usually in triangles like this the wife/girlfriend usually is still in the dark. Even when the offending couple break up. Brenda knowing changes things a bit. I will just say that Bob sucks. I think Brenda and Laurel should join forces to take him down. At his wedding. Like it’s a WWE show. Lets do this ladies!

I do like they use their histories against and for them.  Laurel almost drinking. Bob thinking Brenda could have cancer and is shoplifting again. Bob has a history of getting bored and finding the next person to sleep with.  All of this is being brought up again because no one is in a good place and its being compared to the last time they were all in a bad place.  In my eyes, Bob is the only one who isn’t learning, somewhat, not to repeat history.

Arthur is scarred for life. God help him.

Ross/Moses/Rhona

Rhona is trying to get Ross help and I think Ross will confuse that with flirting. Kindness isn’t flirting and I think he will learn that.  The whole, Rhona and Ross rumors? My gut tells me that Ross will make a move and Rhona will push him off. It won’t be a ‘Debbie vs The Bartons’ situation. I think it will just show how far Ross has fallen with his mojo with women. He can’t read them anymore.

I’m glad Moses didn’t get hurt by eating the pills. It took his son to realize he needs help which is sweet. I have to laugh though. The magazines promoted this small moment as ‘MOSES HORROR!” and “ROSS ALMOST KILLS SON!” and it wasn’t anything like that. More proof that those writers will say anything to get those clicks. Some are worse than other. *COUGH*

Wishing Well Drama

TICK TOCK. TICK TOCK TIME FOR LACHLAN TO GO NUTS! Lachlan wants to keep his new family together and not have it fall to what his family was that he will do anything to keep them together. Doubt it will help because at the end of the day, Lachlan isn’t a Dingle and he will get pushed out.

Belle hearing those voices made me sad. Sam and Belle having that argument. I think everyone needs to leave Lisa an Zak to figure out their next steps. Not the kids. How dare they put their kids in the middle of it all. Its cruel and no one deserves that. Bad parenting all around.

The Little Things

  • Just because the show doesn’t tweet back at you doesn’t mean they are ignoring you. They might just not want to answer that question yet or maybe they can’t answer certain questions. Their silence doesn’t mean a yes or a no. (that was directed more at Twitter than Tumblr readers)

 

  • They are setting up Jessie’s backstory. She is scared to get close to a guy. I don’t know what happened with her ex or who he is but I think he did a number on her and that means any man who comes along next will pay for his mistakes.

 

  • I like Liv being in prison because that gives her something different to do. The whole drinking/bad event/Liv gets out of it and repeat was getting boring. Now she is something new to do and a new environment to do it in.  Maybe for once, people will face the fact that Liv has a drinking problem. She has to come down at some point in there and there is a lot to work with story wise.

 

  • Robert is such a dad with the photo album and the ‘exam’ comment. I love it.

Emmerdale Live and Organized – April 18, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

So, this is going to be my last ‘Live and Organized’ review.  I will be out of town on Thursday and Friday (I’m getting my hair done so my mom and I decided to make a fun trip out of it), and then Monday starts my full-time job. So, I will be renaming the posts ‘Emmerdale Not Live but Still Organized’ from this point on.

I know a lot of you are happy for my new job (My parents might be creating a shine to the place that hired me) but sad that my reviews wouldn’t be popping up after the episodes air. I will still be writing up reviews and even some speculation posts a lot of you have grown to love. It will just be later. It used to be an after-show mint, but now it will be a night time snack for you Emmerdale fans out there.  I will have more time to write out how I feel now as opposed to live reacting so if anything, things will be getting even deeper around here.

I am sincerely happy, so many of you read my reviews and care enough to send me sweet messages. I do read them, and they make me think I’m not doing this for the hell of it and bugging people. So, thank you!

Since this is still waiting to be posted (Stupid WordPress. I need recs for a new blogging site) I will get deep here before my live review.  I don’t think Aaron is lying or up to something. I think he took Roberts advice to heart (finally) and realized there is more going on in his life.  To get angry or keep it in won’t help. He is smiling at Robert and Seb who he adores. I’ve said this before, and I got crap for it, but I think Aaron will propose. Like the reunion, everything is in Aarons court this time around. Robert won’t suggest it. Also, I think its to fight Sandra in a custody battle. A strong legally married Robron is better than a single mother who has a history of drinking and leaving her daughter to fend for herself.

I have no real opinion on Zak and Lisa. Still, think it’s an IM reset of a KO problem. Thank god. He is fixing all the problems she left behind and it’s making it be a stronger show. Belle is in trouble. Being in an impossible situation. Lachlan’s perfect family is cracking which means Lachlan could crack (DO IT LACHLAN!). Um…anything else? Um…I think Lydia and Sam are the best and lets all bow down to them and their awesomeness. Weird? NO. NEVER! LYDIA FOREVER! Ahem…right…I should stop fixing this as I wait.

With that said, let’s crack on!

Wishing Well

LYDIA AND SAM!!!! MY LOVES. MY HEARTS. I AM SO HAPPY. HI GUYS!

Belle isn’t going to handle this well. How will Lachlan react?

Yup. Zak. She took herself out of the Dingle equation. Deal with that.

Zak is blaming Belle now. Hmmmm. An ‘alpha-male’ blaming the women in his life. What a surprise. *eye roll*

Did Zak steal Belle’s phone? Wow. WOW.

Getting drunk isn’t the answer, but it helps while one decides. That’s a horrible message ignore me.

Belle is in such a bad position. SUCH A BAD POSITION. I feel for her. She has to deal with her mom and dad at opposite corners. Belle won’t respond well to that kind of pressure.

I think this is fixing quite a bit right now. KO just had Zak cheat and then got back with Lisa with no real fallout. Time for them to be reset and deal with their issues. Build a strong foundation. This is another IM resetting and making better the mistakes made by KO.

The Thomas Family

Dottie is getting so big! *Oh as the years go by…*

That can’t be easy. You want your kid to be part of the crowd, but you can’t afford it. It really can’t feel good. I guess it can be used as a lesson. It’s not a bad lesson just got to hurt. Makes me appreciate my parents even more. They always had the money to send me places.

The Café Crew

I want all of Jessie’s clothes. Right now. She looks amazing at all times.

Is Brenda full-blown wedding planning? Even though she knows. Sigh. Brenda. OH BRENDA. Please be planning a big ‘f-you’ towards them.

Marlon is going to go off on Jessie for ‘lying.’ Those two are really cute. Marlon and Jessie.

Lydia and Sam. My heart! I LOVE THIS CONVERSATION! MY LOVES.

LILY SIGHTING.

We had a cute scene of Aaron agreeing to listen to Robert! I love it. LOVE IT. THAT IS WHAT I WANT. I am a happy fan. SO HAPPY! <3

I love how Robert was flirting with Aaron. Tough love. My mind went all types of dirty. ALL TYPES OF DIRTY. *wink*

Bob? Do you really think she has cancer again? She has cancer, and it’s you BOB! *head whip*

The Pub Crew

Sandra called? Blamed Aaron and Chas? I KNEW IT. Might Sandra try to get Liv back? Maybe?

Robert is being the VOICE OF REASON. LISTEN TO HIM FOR ONCE AARON.

Oh, blame Robert again for your mistake and putting Syd in a stupid cage instead of listening to Robert? I will kick off on Aaron. That was fracked up. Blaming doesn’t do anything. Don’t slide back into 2016 again. I beg of you, Aaron. Stop it. I’ll excuse it because you are stressed but…stop. Please. As a fan of yours.

Robert being the voice of reason makes me all warm inside. It’s a present to me. *heart eyes*

Paddy pushing Marlon cracked me up. Like god…I think Marlon and Paddy should be up as best partnership. JUST BECAUSE.

Some background on Jessie! I love it. Finally. She will fit into the village beautifully.

David’s Grocery

I want a Robron mug and David’s bag, but the merchandise people don’t ship to America. BOOOO! We are fans too out here! (#USAWANTSMERCH)

I love Jessie taking it in stride. That’s my girl!

Oh. We hit a nerve finally with Jessie. Interesting. VERY INTERESTING. Who is her ex?

The Factory

Oh hey. Rishi isn’t horrible! Don’t be a butthead Jai. Don’t be like Joe! He is a buttmunch. That is the highest level of butt. Don’t rise the butt ranks Jai! DON’T RISE THE BUTT RANKS.

Rishi is adorable. That is all.

Emmerdale Live and Organized – April 17, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Let’s crack on!

The Wishing Well

Oh. Lachlan is on today. I didn’t know that. Interesting. I was just talking about him too!

Lachlan has such a low opinion of his family. That doesn’t ring alarm bells in Belles head?

Here is the thing. Lisa had the right to be angry and scared. Also, you protect family. So, it’s an impossible situation to be in.

Oh god. Lisa. Honey. Zak couldn’t tell something was wrong by how she was grabbing her arm earlier?!?! COME ON BUDDY!

Lisa is taking herself out of the equation. That’s for her health and I agree.

“Sometimes doing the right thing is hard.” – Lisa *Moral of the story people!*

David’s Grocery

Yeah. I’m sure people are beside themselves for Liv over there. Bernice seemed to not care making those comments after the sentencing.

Bob. You are persona grata.

The Mill

Awww! They get him to sleep so they don’t have crazy baby. Adorable. I love how excited Robert was about the Seb plan too. He was like dancing.

Ok. Aaron. I understand the anger. BELIEVE ME. I get it. Everyone needs to chill. For a second.

The Detention

Liv. Don’t ask for drinks in the detention hall.

Ok. SO, we know the leader.

Step one: Gain a following

Step two:  Create a Liv cult

Step Three: Take down the old leader.

We got this Liv! *HIGH FIVE* That wasn’t weird to write….right? I’m just trying to find ways to keep her safe. Creating a Liv cult might help! *Ignore me. I’m not funny today*

Liv. Hold it together. You got this. You are better than her.

The Café Crew

Joe. Walk away. Aaron will kill you. Robert will help him bury the body.

THINK IT THROUGH AARON. He has close friends at the law firm! COME ON BUDDY.

Good. Now. Time to plan. Plan Take ButtMunch Down.

The School

OH! A new set! Exciting!

I think I would have loved Jessie if she was my teacher growing up. Principal? What does Jessie do? She is a teacher, right?

Marlon. Kids can smell fear. *makes eyes*

OH THANK GOD! Jessie and I made the same joke! I’m as cool as Jessie! *YAY!*

Oh Marlon. Telling children about death and gerbils.

“I buried him in a box!” – Marlon *SNORT*

The Pub Crew

Oh. Robron are in the comfy chairs. I would love those chairs.

“The last thing your family needs is a giant feud.” – Robert *I don’t think you two need a feud either. A PLAN. LETS MAKE A PLAN*

How romantic? No. *makes face at Chas and Paddy*

What was that look from Robert? As he watched Paddy and Aaron hug? What was that?

The Hospital

She needs to reduce stress. Oh boy. Either she is leaving Wishing Well or she is kicking Zak out.

Which will it be?

The Portacabin

This episode is oddly spaced. Now Aaron is at the portacabin? Ok then. Like Aaron likes to work! *HA HA HA*

Butt Munch. GO AWAY.

Aaron walk away. WALK AWAY.

“Do I have to watch you every second!” – Robert *Yes. Yes you do*

Aaron. The Mill isn’t up for grabs. NEVER. I’d also like to point out that Joe wouldn’t think the Mill is up for grabs if you didn’t lock someone in a freaking cage and then got yourself kidnapped. *Moral of the Lesson? LISTEN TO YOUR HUSBAND NEXT TIME*

Emmerdale Title Card

The State of Emmerdale and Fandom

I am writing this as a fan. Someone who loves a great story. Great actors. Great flow. I can recognize when something isn’t working. I can call out my favorite shows. Even with some faults (all shows have faults), I believe Emmerdale has been great this year.  Now, everyone is allowed to have an opinion. Everyone can feel how they feel and that’s that.

Here is how I feel. Take it or leave it.

Now I’m breaking this down into sections. What I see the most on social media when it comes to the show, Robron, and Iain MacLeod. Get some coffee and a snack. This is a long look at Emmerdale and fandom (from my point of view).

The Show as A Whole

Emmerdale is finally being written as, “A Day in the Life in a Village.”  Everyone is interacting. No one is really in their story corners anymore.  People are mingling. They are reacting. People are interconnected. That makes it a lot more fun.  The girls going out to the club.  Rhona and Pete are getting closer.  Charity is helping Tracy while facing her own past.  These characters would have never interacted three years ago. If you look back and watch the episodes back, then (three or four years ago) everyone was in their corners. Not really interacting. Now, we have a real village feel.

The cinematography has been great. I’m getting so much ‘unsaid’ moments this year and it makes me understand character motivations a lot better. Less telling and more showing. I know some might disagree or say that I’m reading into things, but let’s look at what happened today.

The two-shot of Liv and Gabby. Rewatch it if you must. The slow push in as the judge spoke. The fact they dressed Liv in all black. Her side had a slight shadow on her. Painting her in a darker light.  Gabby, meanwhile, had more light and her clothes were brighter. That subconsciously told me how this would end. They both were in the same position, their hands folded on the table, but they were in very different places emotionally. Especially in the judge’s eyes.

The scene with Charity after she tells all to Vanessa about her past.  They shoot her sitting on her bed in her bedroom. They shot her from way above. That tells me she feels small. The random dingy stuffed animals might hint at innocence lost. It was telling and gave me more information that dialogue wouldn’t.

I’ve been slightly in awe of how great the crew has been on this show and makes me appreciate all the effort they put in.

One of the biggest complaints I hear about is how Iain keeps using the same plots repeatedly. Yes, the tropes are the same. As in every soap. It’s the characters that change the game.  Just because the plot is the same doesn’t mean things will run the same way.  The characters actions change things. I’d wait to judge a storyline before it airs. You might be pleasantly surprised. Going into a storyline with an open might can do wonders for one’s enjoyment of the show.  I’m someone that would prejudge a story before it aired and I found it ruined the show for me. Keeping an open mind can change a lot. That’s just how I feel right now, and you don’t have to agree. That’s just my opinion.

The show finally gave us a villain that they so desperately needed. I don’t consider Lachlan, a villain. Not the kind I want in a soap. Sometimes all soaps need a villain that is one-dimensional. Someone to shake things up. Screw with some settled characters. Yes, I know Robert and Aaron have just gotten settled, but I’ll speak more about that below in another section. Joe and his arrival with Graham has given us a villain to hate. Someone we can’t possibly feel conflicted about. Sometimes we all need a good villain to root against. Someone for the audience to bond over. Their hatred of this character. I’m glad Joe showed up. Let’s see what they do with him once he is done upsetting the status quo.

The show isn’t perfect, but I am really enjoying it right now.  I have let go of all my anger (I let go, but I don’t forget the anger), and I am enjoying the plot and where it takes me.  Sometimes we all just need to breathe, reboot and wait to see where a story takes us. It is a soap opera. A lot can change on a soap opera.

Robron (and Family)

Since Robron’s reunion, they have been doing what I expected.  They have settled in. They are communicating. They are trying to create their family on a much better foundation.  This time around Robert and Aaron are much different.  They are there for each other.  They listen. They care. They are a family now. A family that would do anything for each other. We weren’t getting that in 2016. That version of Robron wasn’t ready for the house, the family and facing difficulties together. Their foundation was cracked. Looking back in 2017, it hurt. It hurt a lot. However, there were reasons for the hurt. It built Robert up to be better. He went through hell and back and learned something from it. Same with Aaron. Aaron worked on his mental health with a therapist. He went on a vacation. He tried to move on with another type of guy.  Aaron and Robert got to burn to the ground and build back up stronger individuals so when they were ready to join forces, they were even stronger than before. The tools are there, and they are using them.

Sure, there will be setbacks. Aaron will do something stupid. Robert will make the wrong decision, but it’s on for their own self-interest. It’s for their family, and they are protecting each other. That’s what I am here for. These two stronger individuals working together. They are a family now, and I hate to break this to some people, but they are one of the healthier couples on the show. I know. Amazing considering their past. They needed that break to realign. It hurt, and some are still hurting, but it was for the best. Story and character wise. I see it as Iain MacLeod fixing Kate Oates mistakes with them.

I think that is why the show has attached Joe to them. Some can’t see why Joe would go after Robert. I personally do see a connection. Joe is a watered-down wannabe Robert.  He isn’t fully formed yet.  He has money and a bodyguard (that feels owes him) and a company but no heart. No real family. No real love. Since he doesn’t have that he must be better than guys who do have that. Robert is one of those guys. He has it all. He has the husband, the family, the business, and love. So, let’s go after him and destroy that. Bring him down to his level, and then he can rise above. Joe is a villain that thinks he can take on a former villain. Good luck Joe. You are dealing with Robert, Aaron, and The Dingles. He will win battles but never the war.

I know people seem to think because Robron doesn’t kiss as much as Vanity or Laurel/Bob, they aren’t looking at the context. Robron are not in their honeymoon stage. They aren’t in affair mode. They are settled. They are old marrieds who need a nap or two. I personally don’t need them all over each other to know they love each other. Actions speak louder than words. All the times they protect each other and are there for each other say a lot more to me than stolen kisses on a couch in the back of the pub. Would I like to see a kiss or two? Yeah but I know its coming. They have big things on the horizon, and if we all can have some patience and faith, we will be seeing it.

I say, when some of you get caught in the negative feedback loop that is social media, sit back. Read some good fanfiction. Think up how the wedding will go down. Think of how Liv will get out of her sticky situation. Come up with fun Gerry related events. Instead of staying angry over things you can’t change, think of all the good that is coming for the couple in the future.

Rebecca White

Ah. The thorniest of the thorns in fandoms side.  I’ll clarify here and now. I don’t like her. I never will. She can save the whole village, and I will roll my eyes at her.  I think what frustrates me now is what they are doing with her.  I have made my peace with last year. It happened. Nothing can change that. I still hate it, but I refuse to stay in that negative frame of mind anymore. In my eyes, she lost big time.  She wanted her family to burn, she wanted Robert, and she wanted the family money. What did she get? Her family (who she decided she suddenly cared about) died at another family members hand, Robert never loved her and never will, and the family has some money but not the millions she expected.  She lost it all, and that’s a good start to me. Now she has a permanent brain injury. Something the show went out of their way to tell us won’t have an easy way out. She has this for life. She is changed.

That is where I get frustrated. I expected the show to do something with her. Reset her character. Rebuild differently. Something. Right now, she is being used as plot devices for Ross, Lachlan, and Debbie. We are just waiting for the Lachlan storyline to explode at this point. In the meantime, she is playing a comedy routine in the pub.  Which is frustrating because its just…she is dead weight in my eyes.

By the way, Robron have no ties to her. Just Seb and that is thin at best.  For once she is being shown far away from them. Which signals that plot device is over. Some need to remember that and remember it’s not 2017 anymore. That story has passed and as the Twitter account said, “That is not the story we are telling.”

Either have her kill off Lachlan, Lachlan kills her off or something. Something needs to change. Right now she is just there. Staring off into the abyss is dead weight. I can’t wait to see this plot device move on.

Iain Macleod VS Kate Oates

I lied. He might be the thorniest of the thorns in certain parts of fandom.  I don’t hate Iain or Kate. I think both have their positives and negatives. I just like Iain’s Emmerdale more than Kate’s. I wrote this out (after I had a few mind you) but someone asked me on Tumblr to compare the two. So, here it is. There is more I would like to add, but this is getting too long already.

Kate Oates

What Works

Kate Oates is good at dark, dramatic story.  The ones that, if one thing is done wrong, the whole storyline is over. For instance, Bethany’s Grooming storyline was done beautifully. As is the start of David’s rape story.  She knows how to hit the right beats and promote social issues in significant ways, so it grabs the attention of not only the fanbase but the general audience as well.  That is great. On Emmerdale, she did this with Edna and her inability to pay for heat or food. Elderly not being able to afford the cost of living is a real problem in the United States (where I live) but the UK as well. I could argue her Woolpack Siege is part of the dark, dramatic story but didn’t have a social issue involved.  It didn’t have a great buildup, but once Cameron came out with the gun, there was this slow build up to Debbie/Cameron/Chas. She compared that human build up to the building filling with water about to explode. If I remember correctly the building exploded right when the triangle exploded.  It was great television and had a lot of great writing, direction and camera work. This covers the big helicopter crash that had a big build up with multiple characters involved.  Same with the ‘Who Shot Robert?’ storyline that borrowed from a famous Hitchcock movie but it still surprised people.

What Doesn’t Work  

Even though I said she is good at the big dramatic story, she tends to make everything dark. She has trouble with comedy plots. She tries, but it just doesn’t happen. For instance, on Coronation Street, Liz and Eileen hiding out in the toilets to avoid an annoying person were meant to be funny.  Also, Gemma (the resident comedy plot who I adore) was recently attacked by Fitz for sleeping with Tyrone.  Instead of it being dramatic they tried to make it funny, and it just left me hating everyone but Gemma because Fitz has no right to throw stuff and grab Gemma for something she let her boyfriend get away with.  Her idea of light and funny doesn’t exist. During her reign on Emmerdale that happened too. There was an imbalance of comedy to dark.  She had Alicia sexually abused, Adam cheated on Victoria and Ross shot Robert because Andy paid him to do it.  So much fun.

Also, I’m writing this here. She had a ton of cheating during her reign of Emmerdale and currently Corrie. So, the whole argument of Iain only does cheating storylines falls apart instantly since all showrunners use cheating. Even Kate Oates has used a cheating trope the wrong way. Tyrone/Gemma ring a bell? Aiden and Maria? Come on now. She planned to kill off Robert and just make him a one-dimensional character though he was a legacy and Ryan deserved better back then. Thank god fans grew to love him, and he got to stick around long enough to see a different showrunner direct the character.

She also repeats stories. Here is a list of all the stories she is repeating:

1) Kana/Billy and Todd = Robron (Kana is…less than impressive. Billy and Todd’s demise couldn’t be helped)

2) Cameron = Phelan (SIGH)

3) Summer = Liv (Ok…that is less repeating and more trying to compete and complete her new version of Robron. Sorry. I like Summer but Team Liv)

4) Eva/Aiden/Maria = Ross/Debbie/Pete (think about it. Both had terrible people stuck in the middle. One named Debbie and one named Aiden. )

5)Rita (a beloved character) almost dying = Val (actually dying) (I think the fans saved Rita. Those campaigns to keep her around at any cost was intense.)

Those are few I can name off the top of my head.  I remember pointing out more with someone, but I lost track. Either way, she has her favorite tropes, or she tries to recreate, and it falls flat…most of the time.

Iain Macleod

What Works

Iain is good at using a shows history in a creative way.  Sometimes it easy to just barrel forward and leave your mark by creating new families or new characters and let them squeeze themselves into the canvas. Iain has been using the shows history and building on that history.  He did it with Robert and his sexuality and daddy issues.  Which did upset long-term viewers since some long-term viewers view Jack as a bit more innocent than he was actually on screen. He recently showed this strength by bringing a beloved family back, The Tates.  Using that history (that family has a strong history), he can easily bring back fan favorites while developing a future for them in the village.  Joe fits, and because he fits so well, Graham (who he brought with him) fits in as well.

He knows how to mix the village up.  For some reason 2017 had everyone in their corners but around November 2017 and beyond the village starting mixing again.  People who aren’t in the same storylines still hanging out at the pub together or having a conversation in the pub is happening again.  I think Robert being taken out to a club by other characters wouldn’t have happened in 2015 or even 2017, but in 2018 it worked. Everyone was talking and taking advice from each other by that point. The village feels alive again.

He is good at creating new characters.  Jessie, Gerry, and Graham are some original characters that have added so much to the village and still have a long future ahead of them.  I can see all three characters sticking around for a long time.

What Doesn’t

I think he has trouble working with characters that he didn’t create, or he can’t draw some history from.  That is why direction for The White family has been a bit on the crazy side. Not in a good way.  Since The Whites are limited in terms of history, he seems to struggle with what they will be or do next.  Which lead to uneven characterization and general confusion.  Killing off two seemed to cut down on the confusion but who is left is just hanging out till the next plot point. So, that was horribly done.

He is headstrong. If he wants to see something on screen, we are getting it.  He wanted to see Robert with a kid.  We have it (I say it worked out ok for now, but it was rough going getting there).  He wanted to see some couples broken up and mixed up, so we got Pete and Priya (hot summer romance…not.).  He doesn’t look at the bigger picture or long-term effects of storylines.  There is quite a bit of 2017 that is full of experiments that just failed miserably.

He loves his favorite plot devices. He loves babies (everyone got a baby last year…and Chas this year.), and he falls back on cheating even when it doesn’t make sense (Laurel/Bob and Priya/Pete) and many more that is abused quite a bit on the show. To the point when we were tired watching.

To tell you the truth, one thing they both are good at is getting viewers to watch, comment and freak out over the show. Both shows are consistently neck and neck in the ratings and have created their own little corner of the soap world that is getting both Corrie and Emmerdale noticed internationally.  Both have many faults, but they have done a lot of good as well.  They understand social issues, and how to relate those issues to their audience. One would argue both have gotten attention from a younger viewer base than former showrunners.  However, right now…I like where both are for the time being. I think Kate Oates needs to stay at Corrie and people need to recognize that 2018 has been better than 2017 for Iain MacLeod.  He is learning, slowly, from his mistakes of 2017.  So, let’s keep everyone in place for the time being. For my sanity.

In Conclusion

I think it’s easy to stay negative.  It is easy to hate everything before it can hurt you. I get it. 2017 Emmerdale was rough. It hurt. I was bitter. Angry. I have all my reviews and theories to prove that. However, now that I can see the faults and the good, I am willing to let go of the past and move forward. Doesn’t mean I won’t be unhappy with the show but I don’t think it’s the worst show in history or constantly disappointing me. I’m willing to go for the ride and try not to judge too soon.  I think Robron has a lot of good coming. A lot of hard times but they are stronger and won’t make the same mistakes again.  I think the characters being mixed about is great. I think there is a lot that will develop with Joe that will make us happy.

Its ok if you are negative or upset. I just hope you don’t stay there for long. See the humor in situations and try to see the good instead of only seeing bad. Don’t take this as me telling some to lighten up or anything. This is just my opinion and how I approach the shows most talked about topics. I hope you see the good soon and I’ll see you around Emmerdale.

Emmerdale Live and Organized Tracy

Emmerdale Live and Organized – April 16, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

I think I’ve decided on ‘Emmerdale Not So Live But Still Organized’ for my reviews as I go forward. This is the last week I will be doing reviews live. Technically this coming Thursday and Friday will be the first late reviews since I will be getting my hair done. That’s right, I’m getting blonded up and made normal again. So…lets begin! It’s a big week!

Let’s crack on!

The Queen is into trees. So am I Queen (I’ve made this joke so many times but the ads for this special are just so…weird.)

The Mill

Everyone is looking sharp for this court case. I wish Liv wore something nicer than that but its ok.

Gerry is part of the family! *HIGH FIVE*

Here is the big question. Has Joe effected Liv’s lawyer?

Bernice and Gabby

Gabby wouldn’t survive. Liv might have a better instinct in there. Gabby won’t. She is a poor little rich girl type.

Everyone has their people on their side. Lets see how this plays out.

Marlon’s Place

Marlon and Paddy will see each other. They are acting like one is leaving forever.

Ah. The gerbil. It lives. *snort*

HIDE THE GERBIL. *LAUGHS HARDER*

The Barton’s

LAMB!!! I want to feed a lamb.

Come to daddy Lampchop! *SNORT* Do you think he says that to all the girls?

That lamb is loving life. Me when I get a massage.

I know people hate the idea of Ross and Rhona but we don’t know what is coming so don’t judge before you see it.

The Courthouse

My partner? I still think the husband has disappeared because of the upcoming wedding. I noticed the press aren’t saying husband anymore either.

Oh boy. I don’t like this guy.

Awwww! Some extra love from Robert to Liv. *Sugden-Dingle POWER!*

Really? We are using the ‘Dead Dad’ card? SERIOUSLY.

SERIOUSLY BUDDY? WHAT ARE YOU DOING OTHER THERE?!?! STOP IT.

Claudia? CLAUDIA. SON OF A BITCH. IT’S OLIVIA.

Oh Liv. You should have said something. ANYTHING. Anything, even angry words, is better than not speaking at all. Looks like she doesn’t care when we all know she does.

Nice shot of the two girls. Liv isn’t going to get the same sentence though.

Four months of detention! WOW.

THIS LAWYER SUCKS.

Aaron is going off on everyone.  I don’t blame him, but Robert needs to pull him back before he ends up in jail too.

Bernice needs a kick in the butt for saying that in front of them. Back off.

The Pub Crew

If you are so bad that you can’t work…you need someone to figure out what is going on. Being that sick isn’t normal. She might have what Kate Middleton has.

God. These two make me sick. I don’t care about them but for people that do? I hope you are enjoying it. *seriously, I mean it.*

I HATE YOU JOE.

Oh hey. I was right. Look at me. I’m a social media doctor!

The gerbil is PREGNANT? *MAJOR SNORT*

Honest week. Something this village doesn’t understand. *WINK*

Let Aaron hit him. Not really but I want to hit him too.

WHAT AN ASSHOLE. JOE IS DEAD. DEEAAADDDD.

Aaron is blaming himself now. Robert is in a state. The Dingles are split up. THIS IS A MESS AND ITS ALL JOES FAULT.

Joe needs to die.

The Wishing Well

“Oh finally it speaks.” – Lisa

Oh boy. This is going to create a riff with them.

“What do you want me to say, woman?” – Zak *I don’t like the way he used woman there.*

I’m conflicted. So conflicted. I get what Lisa did but I get protecting family. This is interesting.  I’m torn.

“You aren’t one of us!” – Zaz

Do you want to become a Dingle after that? Geez. Its like the mob. Dingle Mob (coming this May)

Emmerdale Live and Organized – April 13, 2018

Welcome back to Emmerdale Live and Organized! In case you haven’t been here before here is what happens. I watch the episode and write down my thoughts as it comes to me in an organized fashion. It’s like a live look inside my brain while watching Emmerdale. Not as crazy as it sounds. Unless you want it to be. *wink*

Please make sure to read my announcement below in the ‘It’s Just Speculation!’ section of this review.

Let’s crack on!

The Pub Crew

Alright then. That’s an odd Charity and Jai moment. I won’t lie, back in the day Charity and Jai were really cute together.

I don’t…I don’t hate Vanity but Charity forgave too easily. I wanted Vanessa to have a chat with Robert about how she should have handled it. That is what fanfiction is for though!

Yes. Paddy. WE. Chas is in hell and he is very much off somewhere else.

I feel like Chas has been having bad morning sickness, but it might also be…mental. Something is happening up in that brain of hers that…should be discussed. Pregnancy does a number on a woman’s body.

I still think the Chas/Paddy/Baby storyline is lame. LAME. Also, I don’t think this kid is going to survive or its going to have issues. They are really pushing this hard and its now annoying. Before I rolled my eyes and moved on. Now I’m being forced to call it LAME. Not good.

Hold your horses there Paddy. Chas isn’t an amazing mom at all. She is ok. She is an ok mom. I have no problem calling her that either. I just saw an episode where Chas forgot Aaron was alive. NOT KIDDING. *See Siege 2013*

TIP AND SEB ARE THE STARS OF TODAYS EPISODE. *Its law*

LYDIA MENTION! Where is my girl?

God no. These two married? That is a shit show waiting to happen. *Wow. That is negative. I just don’t buy these two…at all. Its my thing. I’ll let it go someday. I always do.*

The Mill

The whole family is here for Liv’s meeting. Adorable.

“They won’t mention Gordon, right?” – Liv *Oh god…the will mention Gordon won’t they?*

I wish Ryan would hold onto Lily a different way. Making me nervous. Also, Lily is getting so big! Look at her! *heart eyes*

Only the best for Liv. LOVE IT. *I know what goes down but…they really did try*

*SHARPENS MY CLAWS* You got to be kidding me. Joe knows her?!?! Joe is so behind what goes down with Liv. I hate Joe Tate with a passion. PASSION.

Liv is acting like a teenager there. I’ve said stupid crap like that before. Not that I needed a lawyer. Its more…being scared so I’m mean. Its very teenage girl.

Zak in The Mill is so weird. Looks like Wishing Well came to visit the future.

The Bartons

I really do love when the Barton brothers get along. They can be a strong unit when they try.

I do love that Rhona is trying to stop someone from going down her path. Its very sweet.

“What’s a few decades between friends.” – Ross to Rhona

Did Rebecca forget that she and Ross are buddies now? Whatever. I think I like Ross and Rhona being friends more now. Rhona wouldn’t let Ross wallow. OH. Wait. He is there to steal her shit again. Gotcha show. Gotcha. Great friendship there.

Target Pills acquired. I bet we will never see these two hanging out again.

 The Doctors

OH LOOK. Chas gets a scan! *I can’t stop mocking this. It will be on my gravestone at this point*

Its bigger than I thought it would be. She isn’t showing much. Unless, because they screwed up the padding and stuff for Rebecca I don’t know what to look for on this show.

Oh. It’s the size of a lime. Ok. I’m over thinking this. I went back in time for a second there.

So, things are going to change soon.  I won’t be able to write these reviews live anymore.  I have finally landed myself a job and won’t be around full time. However, I won’t be leaving all five of you that read these reviews religiously. I still got your back.  I will still give my thoughts it will just be later on in the day.  It’s less live and more…Britbox Live.  I might not always give line by line reactions anymore but I will be here, doing my best to give opinions and be the silly American I know all five of you love me to be.  I might have to change the name of this review series though. Any suggestions?

Let’s all be kind to one another. Respect each other’s opinions. Enjoy the ride Emmerdale has us on.
