Home Farm: Emmerdale

The ongoing story of the most dramatic small village in history.

by Anonymousreply 585Last Wednesday at 8:06 PM

This show became rather maddening under MacLeod, but for me, its just unwatchable now. I gave it up last July. I still read the episode recaps, but nothing is luring me back. .. They should have put 15 useless characters on the ferry to Belfast and had it sink.

And from the last thread ... Yeah, Miller looks like he could lose a stone, at least.

And Aaron aching for a baby ... blech.

I can't wait for Maya to be found out. Plus, I HATE her hair!

I cringed when Maya became a regular. The actress had a lengthy arc on Holby City that I endured, and she was just as irritating .. same hair.

Sort of sad that those actors can't find work as actors. I thought both were quite good. I stumbled on to the show via the robron story on youtube. There is some really great work done within the usually horrible soap world. But as mentioned, it is unwatchable now. I guess people like Danny Miller stay on knowing other acting gigs are hard to get. I think he is quite talented and still handsome.

Damn, Lisa's death had me crying. I'm so happy, though, that she got a great last day. We can all hope to go out with such a wonderful day. Also, while she has never been a real beauty, she lived up to the idea that all women are beautiful on their wedding day, when she walked down the stairs, I was so surprised by how nice she looked.

I do think it was inappropriate though for Achy Breaky Heart to be playing at the reception, due to her condition.

R37 I know the characters like C&W. The resurrected Woolpackers was fun and perfect for their wedding reception.

I almost hope they write them off together, or have Robert murdered or killed off somehow.

If not, the Robron fanatics would more than likely be continually calling for his return (ad nauseam) just like the Stendan stans from Hollyoaks do with Brendan - with no new love interest for Aaron standing much of a chance.

R149 Yep, for me, the show took a real nose dive during the latter half of MacLeod's run, so that pretty much corresponds to that "year and a half" timeframe of yours. There was just way too much lame humor injected (most of it to fill up minutes in order to come up with six episodes) and a very large population of totally useless characters. I still read the recaps from time to time, but nothing has lured me back. They'd need a major cast cull. And now they get seven episodes a week?!? RME. ..

It will be a long while before they have Aaron with another guy. Not that it would matter. They would just act like two bros anyways. Tonight's episode had them tell each other "I love you" and then they did a half hug. Good lord.

I really don't understand how they can send him to prison when he is leaving the show. Would they just imply that Aaron is visiting him there but we don't see it? Also doesn't really prolong Aaron not meeting someone new? I'm sure Danny Miller is fine with that since it would mean he doesn't have to kiss any more blokes.

Does anyone remember/miss Viv Windsor?

She was a great character played by a talented actress. Didn't initially start out as a nosy Betty-Eagleton in training but gradually got used more for comedy. Of course, they ruined her character with shite storylines towards the end but it always seemed wasteful to just kill her off for no particular reason.

R182 Emmerdale has really gone downhill in the last 2-3 years (imho). While I generally find Hollyoaks pretty entertaining, I was finding Emmerdale increasingly unwatchable and finally gave it up about a year ago. In the U.S., current episodes of Emmerdale are part of the BritBox streaming service, which goes for $6.99/month or $69.99 per year. They offer a 7-day free trial if you want to check it out .. or it's not that hard to find pirate episodes on the net.

In any event, I guess the audience won't have to wait to find out. The reveal to us is supposed to come this Friday, but the villagers won't find out for awhile.

by Anonymousreply 36101/24/2020

R360 Yes, Pierce killed Graham. .. And even though Graham was on top of Pierce, they showed Pierce's arm (wearing the green jacket) reach out for and grab the huge metal flashlight laying nearby. That's the object that Pierce hit Graham with. And the strike was to Graham's left forehead, so it came from Pierce's position underneath Graham - as opposed to anyone else hitting Graham from behind. When Pierce got Graham's body off of him and stood up, the flashlight was next to Graham's body, and Pierce picked the murder weapon up.

He was fine as Joe’s moderately mysterious sidekick and that was it. It was a big mistake to put him front and center and putting him with Rhona was an utter joke. Absolutely awful. Glad he’s finally gone.

by Anonymousreply 36701/28/2020

R366 It has been consistently more entertaining than Corrie or Eastenders was last year.

R367 Fleabag is good, but I understand why the public might not vote for it as best comedy. As a tragicomedy or a comedy-drama, it leans more on the tragic or drama side than the comedy side. Whereas, Mrs. Brown's Boys is lowbrow farce and unquestionably comedy. Sometimes, people just like to actually laugh, rather than deal with something that is awkward or makes you think.

by Anonymousreply 36801/28/2020

Good point about Fleabag vs. Mrs. Brown’s Boys, R368, except that MBB isn’t remotely funny in the least, in my opinion. It’s bottom of the barrel comedy.

If I were running either show, I would ask some of the older cast members to record short videos at home, in character, so they could say the characters were in quarantine, and showing people that they should be using skype to keep in touch with elderly people.Similar, to Emily's recent appearance on Coronation Street.

Far too many Dingles on this show. Could dump several of them and bring in another family.

They should have left this Mandy creature in the dumpster and rolled it away.

Jamie's far too hawt, and neither Andrea nor Belle are in his league.

So Aaron basically shows up for baptisms and weddings now? .. At the very least, they should have Aaron reconnect with the cute doctor, Alex Mason, that he dated a couple years ago. .. It would just be casual sex, nothing too serious. .. We'd see a few near misses between Alex and Luke at the pub. In one case, Luke would look like he's trying to avoid Alex, but eventually, they'd run smack dab into each other, and it would be obvious that they know something about one another, beyond the fact that they both worked at the hospital. .. Aaron would pick up on this, and when questioned, Alex would spill the beans that Luke was known as the hospital's Grindr slut, revealing that they hooked up in the linen closet a couple of times, then adding, "Cute pink hole with a dusting of strawberry blond fuzz."

by Anonymousreply 51111/07/2020

This would only be interesting if the SHOCK! secret turned out to be that Luke is bi- and has recently hooked-up with Ben via Grindr for some downlow action.

Also, how soon before the new (black) family arrives? The show is pretty dull.

Did anyone watch Emmerdale today? I don't know if there was something wrong with the Britbox upload, but I noticed there was a lot of extreme closeups today. Is it to try and hide the social distancing? There were times I thought the camera was going to hit the actors in the face.

It's now been another whole month since we've seen Ben.

He must be having fun hooking up with guys on Grindr, 'cuz he's certainly not interested in going for that drink with Aaron.

So is Mackenzie going to be bisexual? I got that feeling when he was trying to talk Aaron into joining his illegal activities.

by Anonymousreply 51912/28/2020

Well, if they go forward with Ben and Aaron, then Mackenzie could potentially be a bad (criminal) influence in Aaron's life to provide the conflict that gives Aaron and Ben something to argue about.

So I guess they’re redeeming Jamie?

by Anonymousreply 52101/03/2021

The last few episodes gave me an idea for a story they should pursue. Kim should show more interest in Noah, basically stealing him from Charity and making him into a true Tate. It would not only hurt Charity but all the Dingles. It could also be used to bring Joe back as he would not want Kim getting her hooks into his brother.

by Anonymousreply 52201/03/2021

R322 Didn't Joe Tate already try to do that with Noah? .. As I recall, Charity and The Dingles reacted pretty much as you just described. (I got sick of Debbie, as I generally do, and stopped watching during that period.)

Typo on the Reply No, above ^^^ and meant to be R522.

by Anonymousreply 52401/03/2021

R523 Yes and no, Joe's interest in Noah was treated much more him being genuinely interested in knowing his brother and forming a relationship. With Kim it would be entirely her selfish desire to cause problems.

I'm sorry but how exactly was it racial profiling for them to arrest the guy who actually had the drugs in his coat, who was also the guy that grabbed and put on his coat while the coppers were talking to the group? From the stand point of the cops that would be suspicious behavior by anyone. I'm sure the show could've actually done a story about racial profiling, but this wasn't it.

R538 I totally agree. What's the appeal?

I'm only watching the edited clips of the gay men in the village that (thankfully) that guy puts up on youtube. Even that's been something of a chore. .. Aaron's always angry. Don't understand the point of Ben. .. Luke's a closet case, still in denial into his late 20s (an old chestnut that usually has the same outcome). .. I do like this new Ethan character, though. He and his father have a nice rapport.

by Anonymousreply 53901/28/2021

The way they’re social distancing is really killing the show. It’s just unwatchable now.

Luke's still lying. He told both Victoria and his mom that his thing with a man was a one-off, but in his conversation with Ethan, his relationship with "Steven" was described as something that went on for months.

OK, which one of you bitches scoffed at my idea of a Luke/Aaron pairing last year? Because it’s inevitable now. Luke will probably save Aaron from that crazy homo and that will justify Aaron plowing Luke’s pink love hole.

I still can't get how they have had Jamie Tate, do a complete 180 in his personality, without ANY explanation. He should've had a head injury or brain tumor or something. He went from a fairly spoiled yet friendly and loving person, to someone so despicable that he makes his mother look like a fucking saint.

So Ethan is now moving into the other flat at Mill Cottage, yet they never showed any kind of scene of him going to meet Aaron to lease the place (as Ethan's father told him to do many weeks ago). Also, he looked better without that scraggly beard. It used to be more of trimmed goatee.

R571 The growth of Onlyfans, and the like, has been a major mainstream story in the world for a year or more, I'm surprised a soap hasn't dramatized it.

by Anonymousreply 57205/04/2021

R572 Yeah, the closest thing I've seen is on Welsh soap "Pobol y Cym" where they recently had an arc where a 19-year old girl joined the local prostitute's sex chat, web-cam business. It also came out that a couple of the men in the village had actually subscribed to the service during lockdown. .. The girl got into trouble and was fired after she broke confidence and tried to talk to client (a local Councillor) off-line whenr she recognized him in the local cafe one day. Because she was good at her job, the girl was later rehired, but all hell broke loose, when she disobeyed the rules again and decided she'd meet one of the clients for "a date." Her boss found out, and said she'd take care of it and meet the guy instead. Of course, the guy turned out to be a head case and ended up beating her up. This led to the landlord kicking the older woman out, so the story ended with her moving away to London, and the younger girl is now unemployed and looking for a job that pays as well.

A couple of years ago, Hollyoaks did have gay twink Harry working as a rent boy. Was that a first for gay male prostitution? .. so I could see them doing something along the lines of Only Fans at some point. .. Mack would seem to be a believable character on Emmerdale. Previously, I thought Peter Beale on EastEnders could believably go that route. He was struggling financially with child support payments and was having a hard time making a go of his new "personal training" business, so something like a (G4P) OnlyFans would seem to be a natural tie-in to that kind of endeavor .. lol!

I hope they build a Kim and Lydia friendship, it has shades of Kim and Seth. I wasn't watching in the 1990s, but I recently found those episodes on the Vudu streaming service, and the Kim and Seth friendship was out of the blue but very touching because they fully accepted each other for what they were.
