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 ‘Beat Up on Doug’ Tour
So….SOOOOOO…Aaron. He is angry. Fine. He is upset he lost a friend and Liv is upset. Fine. The whole attacking Doug every time he sees him is going to get old fast. Doug is being emotionally beaten up by a lot of people. He is feeling guilty and beating up on himself. He considered Gerry a son and now he thinks he killed him. That alone would frack me up. I think its time for someone to stand up for him. Eric did which was nice. Doug…YOU GET YOUR OWN BUBBLE WRAP JACKET! *DANCES AROUND THE ROOM FOR HIM*
It wasn’t Doug’s fault. I hate that Doug is feeling this way. DAMN YOU SHOW. YOU MADE ME CARE ABOUT DOUG. WHAT IS GOING ON?!?!
Ross and the Boring Storyline
I won’t lie. I lost the plot when it comes to Ross and his storyline. I either lost interest or I forgot plot points because the pacing has been off with this storyline. Holly-lite isn’t interesting. Her pimp/dealer isn’t interesting. I don’t find Rebecca and Ross cute (if anything…EEEK on that one). The storyline should be powerful. It should be interesting. It should change the character for some time. Maybe give us some growth? MAYBE? Instead, it’s about Debbie. Its about Joe. Its about everything but Ross. So, if the show isn’t interested in Ross…why should I be?
Belle and Lachlan. Chas and Paddy 2.0?
“If that is what you want, that’s what I want too.” – Belle Dingle
SIGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. OK. So, I’m going to repeat what I said for Chas and Paddy debating what to do next after finding out about the pregnancy. I’m a firm believer of backing women and their choice to do what they want with their bodies. I would feel a lot more comfortable if I heard Belle say, “I want this child’ not what I wrote above. That screams I’m letting the guy take over. Which I could argue, it makes sense for the character because Belle is a bit of a mess right now and still acts like a child herself. So, she would do what is easier than making some hard decisions. I guess I have to accept that but…god British Soaps…*shakes my head*
Women and their choices. That’s a great story that all British soaps seem afraid to tell. Not without some horrible circumstances that are just wrong. We have enough anti-women language happening right now. Be brave. Be bold. Do something to really challenge the status quo. You are the sister soap. The wild and crazy soap. Kick some ass.
The Little Things
- Charity saying ‘family is the most important thing’ line made me think that was required because of the sponsor. McCains. Fries for all families. Even Dingles need fries.
- I agree with Charity. Joe SUCKS. Debbie sucks. SUCKS. Ok, Charity didn’t say Debbie sucks, but I think she sucks. SUCKS.
- JOE AND DEBBIE SUCK.
- OH MY GOD YOU GUYS! Robron and Seb were going for a walk! *Dances around the room*
- Aaron being nice to Lachlan…ha…ha….hahahahahaha…that is going to be interesting to watch later on when Aaron might try to kill Lachlan or have to save Robert from Lachlan or kidnaped by Lachlan. Lachlan will implode and I’m sure Robron will be involved is what I am saying. I really want Aaron to save Robert because I need more of that in my life. Also, if it does happen during SSW 2018…I want a nice parallel to happen so my dash can be full of gifs that make me smile.
This came out a lot more negative than it should have but yeah…not the greatest episode. Its ok to say that too. I know I run around and yell that I am the positive fairy and I am. I love this show. I have met amazing people, talked a lot of soap theory, started writing again and have been having a wonderful time watching the show (yes…even during the horror year of 2017). However, its ok to not like something. An aspect. A current storyline. A character. A couple. I’m writing it here to get out the negative vibes. I will not force any opinion onto anyone nor do I think people must agree with me. I am here to write my feelings and then run off to the next episode. That’s the best part. The next episode could be amazing, and I will forget this one. Soaps. You can always be positive that something good is just around the corner.
‘It’s Just Speculation!’
(I’ve lost my way with this section. I need to figure out a new ending section…any suggestions? Maybe a ‘Thank You for Reading’ section?)
