EastEnders Part 9: FugEnders

Will new Executive Producer Kate Oates succeed in her mission to defugify Albert Square?

by Anonymousreply 601Last Friday at 12:51 PM

She ought to send Mitch, Sharon, Bernie, Karen, Ian and Martin to “Portugal” and reintroduce them with hot new bodies.

Keep Phil and Big Mo fat though.

How about sending "My name is DENNIS" along with Louise, to Siberia.

Dennis will probably end up sharing a jail cell with Hunter.

Ben is a real nasty piece of work. Stuart is being redeemed. In some sense he was redeemed by Dot's acceptance and Christian love. Dot is the last Christian on the square. Decades ago, for those who want to attack, they had her go thru the acceptance of AIDS thing. She's retained her Christian beliefs but become accepting. As a comedic episode there was her prayer by the tomb of her best friend, (Ethel?) who she had helped commit suicide (because of her suffering), which she also had to deal with and grow from. "Our Father, What is in Heaven..." Will miss Dot.

Dennis looks as if he's going to grow up to be over 6 foot, which doesn't seem realistic, given his parents. They'll probably recast him soon. This is now the official thread as Part 8 has reached 600 posts.

There's quite a few residents who could use some time in the gym.

They should have Kush exit the street stall and have him take over what used to be "Ronnie's Boxing Club & Gym" (Basher's). I assume Jack still owns the place? I remember it was mentioned after Ronnie died. Anyway, it could be turned into "Albert Square CrossFit" or something. The extras from the gay nightclub scenes can work out there too. .. lol!

Kush isn't seriously planning to selling cheap tat for the next 35 years, is he? He could always keep the stall and have someone else work it for him.

by Anonymousreply 2404/14/2019

If it was a real East End neighbourhood it would have a gym, a juice bar, an ice cream shop, a vegetarian/vegan café, a small venue for live music, a deli and plenty of little independent gift shops, bakeries etc. EastEnders is currently doing a huge set expansion so perhaps a few of these places will appear, with time

50 year old Sharon and 19 year old Keanu should have been a month long fling at most. Dragging it out like this is ridiculous. She isn't attractive in the slightest, even for her own age group. She's already matched with King Fug Phil, fat and short and old like her. She's at her level with him.

Personally, I assumed things would go downhill fairly quickly even when he was still in the UK. He'd already started with the stinky looking tats and always seemed to have a fag in his mouth. Not a good sign. And looking at his father, I think it's primarily genetics along with some less than healthy habits.

R34, R35, surely they won't do something so tone deaf as kill off the show's only gay character? They got a massive backlash for killing Paul a few years ago. It's more likely that the traffickers will kidnap Lola and Lexi and one or both of them will die (and it will be Ben's fault).

I hope New Evil Ben wasn't just brought back to be a criminal. He needs a romantic storyline too. Spain is the centre of the gay porn industry in Europe so maybe he will bring back a porn star boyfriend. I want a big splashy relationship that's really in fat Phil's face.

I said earlier they should have a story about someone ordering prescription drugs online, and here we have Bex ordering a strip of Adderall or similar. She isn't going to develop a drug habit off ten tablets though, but EE has Kush acting like she's got hold of Fentanyl. Adderall is addictive but stop taking it and you'll simply feel tired and hungry. You won't tip into seizures or life threatening withdrawal symptoms.

No redemption for Ben. Ben's part of the conspiracy to kidnap Louise, and ruin Phil in the process. Phil's evil deeds are about to become exposed, and in the process they'll discover that Ben is as bad, if not worse than Daddy Dearest Phil. All of the Mitchell men are con artists. Too bad Keanu didn't quit while he was ahead. The Mitchell's will probably try to blame him for this.

Mmmm - Wouldn't mind if hot otter, Midge, stuck around. If NuBen is going to be psycho, then he might as well have a psycho boyfriend .. lol!

I guess when the actor playing Midge, Tom Colley, was in "The Judas Kiss," he walked around the stage totally naked for 20 minutes. ( I remember brief mention of Colley in the DL thread on Ben Hardy, since Hardy also appeared naked in the play.)

When Colley did the same role in NY, an article on stage nudity made comment about his character (an Italian sailor who was Oscar Wilde's lover in Naples) saying:

[quote] Hare’s script has Wilde remark that the angler has “a generative organ like a rope that has been dipped in pitch.” As one critic noted: Colley well fulfills the physical demands of his role. The actor lounges seemingly without a care — and definitely without a piece of clothing — in the world for about 20 minutes. No props to cover his junk. Just a bit of pastry to nibble.

Have the episodes aired in the US ever caught up with the UK episodes? When Eastenders first started airing the US the series was show on PBS stations. Two episodes were shown five nights a week, so the US would catch up! I stopped watching years ago. I'm curious what the situation is now.

For about a year, BBC America was running the more current episodes, that ended abruptly.

The Whores of Walford Calendar

by Anonymousreply 14605/10/2019

January: Kat Slater, signature lepord-print blouse tied alluringly round her sizable midriff, pulling a pint at The Queen Vic. Her big, naked, pendulous titties are pointing due south towards the bar

February: Sharon Mitchell, beautifully spray-tanned, recreates the moment she was taken by Keanu on that delicate little kitchen table. The difference is now her perfect pins are spread high and wide, giving the paying masses full view of her freshly waxed cooter!

March: Svelte cougar Denise is in the laundrette completing her weekly service wash..in the buff! The picture captures a close up of her boney arse spreading as she bends into the dryer to retrieve her knickers

April: Stacey Fowler reclines proactively on her husband Martin's fruit and Veg stall.. Wearing nothing but a sultry pout and a pair of ug boots. The image captures the moment she entralls the male traders by firing a fresh apple right out of her muff!

Apparently she is set to become a junkie vagrant after her Ritalin addiction spirals out of control, which isn't realistic. Ritalin isn't physically addictive and she'd only be tired and a bit headachy if she stopped taking it.

The producers should have had her take internet Xanax and then had a life threatening seizure when she ran out, to raise awareness of how dangerous benzo use can be. Online Xanax has become really popular in the UK over the past two years.

I'm disappointed that the new Ben is just basically evil, one of the strengths of the character, particularly in the last version of him, is that he did objectively bad things but was basically just really messed up and was hurting himself as much as anyone else. Even though he got angry, and sometimes violent, I was usually sympathetic to him because the actor managed to show what was driving him which was the need for love (especially his dad's), for respect, and a compulsion to perform a particular version of masculinity that never sat quite right on him. I have to say, the last actor was amazing at conveying all of that - Ben's messiness and neediness and anger all at the same time.

It may make sense that that need for his dad's approval has turned into hatred of him but I don't think past Ben was evil like he is now, I feel like he has no sympathetic aspect he's just cold and heartless which, despite everything, old Ben never was. I

R187 W&W to your whole comment.

Harry Reid’s Ben and indeed the very first Ben (the kiddie one in the early 00s) made emotional sense, and seemed like a real albeit insanely traumatised person. He had feelings and desires and beliefs that all clashed inside of him to create an interesting fraught personality. Yes, he was Woobie-ish like Aaron off Emmerdale at times, but there were good character reasons for that. This new incarnation of Ben is more like a reset back to the chilly robotic second one, who nobody liked to watch or connected with because he was badly and barely drawn. It’s a total waste of years building a rich persona for the Mitchell heir.

R257 I feel as sorry for Whit as I do for Ben. She’s a walking cry for help, considering what happened with the sexual abuse from her stepdad and the string of violent user boyfriends. She just wants to be genuinely and consistently cared for, and that’s not selfish so much as simply human. She may be materialistic and needy, but that’s just how her insecurity is showing up in her life. It’s similar to how Ben gets agg and goes off unadvisedly because his somatic impulses are fused to his self-disgust.

The only unsympathetic person in this whole messed-up situation is Halfway. Frankly he’s a major downgrade for new hot Ben considering what the latter once had in Paul (and almost had in Johnny).

I can't decide whether Max/Ben is the perfect amount of camp/OTTness or if he takes the gurning too far and needs to rein it in a bit. Every scene with him is Walford Square bordering on Sunset Boulevard.

Although what I am sure of is that I wish he would tone down his vocal affectation.

I hope virginal Callum doesn't get an STI off of "hussy" Ben (to quote Ruby). He's already spread the clap to half the young population of Walford.

Max has so much charisma, though. He played that scene with Jamie/Jay at the party perfectly--just the right admixture of fraternal affection with a frisson of sexual tension.

Who do we think will be the first to find out about their affair? I'm hoping it's Louise.

by Anonymousreply 38906/08/2019

I hope it’s not Stuart. If Louise finds out first she’ll be enraged at not being the Mitchell centre of attention.

I’m finding Max Bowden’s levels of camp pretty much perfect.

Ben generally leans pretty butch. But when he’s walking through the market and trying to annoy someone going the other direction - Callum, Rainie, Jay, whomever - he will swing his hips a bit and billow his jacket when he flounces past.

I am admittedly enjoying his already habitual sex faces and heavy breathing when violence of any sort is suggested in his personal space.

Yes there were grabby hands and grunts (racy for teatime), but their lips were more or less closed and didn’t meet dead-on. There wasn’t much closeness. It’s early days in their storyline so some tentativeness of course figures in the way it’s played, and I wouldn’t necessarily change it much. I just don’t think it was “hot” and “charged” like everyone is saying. I watched it and went, “aw, ok, nice”.

by Anonymousreply 40206/09/2019

The way that scene was filmed was quite interesting. Definitely memorable and, like everything involving Ben, dancing on the edge of OTT (especially the very last shot with the haloesque lighting). I think it would have been better and more striking if it had been an extended shot of their faces/lips with the jingling of the belt buckle a hint of what was happening. The frenetic switching between faces and clothing kind of dampened the perfect moment of the kiss for me.

Many people (men especially) have no issue with bisexual women or lesbians. It's a different story when it comes to gay men. Also, Stuart might be ok with gays in general, but it's different if it's his own brother.

R422 I can't stand it when fraus and delusional fangirls jump on any relationship between a gay man and his bff. Can't they just be good friends, why be something more? Gay men can have straight male friends without there being anything more to it. I actually love Been and Jay's platonic relationship. To me they're more like brothers than lovers anyway.

Even the way it was filmed was to show Callum’s envy and to show that Ben arrived at the flat drunk because was nervous about being there.

R428: Of course nothing's going to happen between Ben and Jay, but it's not like it's totally out of the blue that some of the shipper cohort would pick up on them, since Ben has canonically been attracted to Jay at least in the past (the drinking game scene at their flat when Harry was still around).

It's also not only delusional frauen. Jamie Fowler on WW, a bisexual man whom I consider the foremost Jay aficionado, just posted about it the other day.

All that being said, I think it's for the best that Ben's attraction to Jay is left in the past or to subtle, joking references.

When did Halfway attend the funeral? Because I just saw the hat/sewing machine episode today and have been keeping up with the show via YouTube.

Leaving Halfway’s peck-peck-peck kissing technique aside, his awkward politeness, hetero virginity and out-of-synch sex life with Whitney speaks volumes when compared and contrasted with his direct interactions with Ben. He texted him to meet him in a park for sex! His relative sexual ease with him way be natural or acquired through experience but it doesn’t matter.

Based on his scenes with Ben or Callum over the past weeks it looks like Jay might be the first to put two and two together.

EE missed a trick not having, and in fact being beaten to the punch on, an alt-right radicalisation storyline. It’s a very “now” issue and Walford is the right demographic. It could explored through someone obviously damaged like Stuart or even more effectively through an otherwise “good” character - as a lot rightwingers claim to not be opposed to actual skin colour but “non-British” values. It could be like when Peggy turned anti-HIV and homophobe as was later redeemed.

But as someone said upthread the current EE resurgence is because Kate Oates is focusing on drama and romance so perhaps it’s for the best.

I can kind of understand why she wouldn’t - women of that age who get pregnant have their hormones screaming out for a baby - but I’m more annoyed that Louise is keeping her baby. So tired of unemployed, uneducated, listless princesses not getting abortions.

Steven's death was so pointless. Kind of like Abi's. At least Ronnie and Roxy's deaths, mistakes though they were, gave us a few good episodes. The entire era of SOC/JY was a travesty.

Sharon is hoping that her baby is Keanu's. She'd dump Phil in a heartbeat, and trample Louise and her kid running back to Keanu like a bitch in heat if whistled and called her name.

Maybe Sharon and Denise should have a little chit chat.

Those family therapy scenes were so great. I loved Letitia's OTT performance.

But the kid playing Dennis sucks. He delivers his lines in a flat monotone. I think this new kid playing Bobby is going to blow him off the screen (no pun intended).

The kid playing Dennis looks like a shithead who beats other kids up at school. He reminds me of that Australian kid who was tormenting a fat kid, and after weeks of harrassment the fat kid bodyslammed him. There's no depth there.

I didn't see EE during much of 2017/2018 due to a death in the family, so am I correct in assuming that Kathy's hawked necklace was acquired from that heist when Mick got shot? Would not have Ben and Halfway met then?

The DL Welp Troll believes in all the conspiracies: Megan Markle's Surrogacy, Charmie, Larry, Kaylor, Gay Simon Cowell. She is aggressive and will tell people they are PR shills/ Russian bots if they disagree with her outlandish conspiracy theories.

R579, Halfgay and Ben definitely knew each other prior to this.

by Anonymousreply 581Last Friday at 6:49 AM

So why did they introduce themselves to each other at the Vic?

by Anonymousreply 582Last Friday at 6:55 AM

Oh dear... threatening Ben was the last thing Callum should have done. Ben will just see this as a challenge and probably try to seduce him or something. That smile at the end of their scene said it all.

I hated how they de-gayed Steven

R584 Well, it doesn't look likes there's any reason to worry now. Kate Oates loves gay storylines.

Well for the love of God stop mentioning them your bête noir trolls every 10 posts or we’ll be hounded, especially by that stroppy cow who is all “What do you look like them?” to posters who complain about Phil’s face.

by Anonymousreply 586Last Friday at 7:14 AM

R586, the What Do You Look Like Then? troll is so irritating. ALL the posters on DS and WW are like that. Phil is the ultimate fug and so is Sharon. She won't even need a moon bump as she already looks nine months pregnant.

Ben's romance with Paul started off with lots of quite rough sex. Ben was always shoving him up against an open casket. This seems like the same. He is a genuinely angry, self loathing type.

I agree with this, the level of camp is perfect.

R589 Thanks for creating a new thread but I wanted a kissing gif too.

by Anonymousreply 591Last Friday at 8:08 AM

R579, yes, I think the necklace is from the heist in January 2018. I think it belonged to Ciara, whose brother was killed by Hunter late last year.

by Anonymousreply 592Last Friday at 8:14 AM

R591, gifs are tricky to download on this lumbering, glitchy site but I'm sure someone will oblige. Is there a Tumblr blog for Ballum yet?

by Anonymousreply 593Last Friday at 8:21 AM

R593 probably , the Eastenders tag went from Ben Hardy and dead to Halfgay

by Anonymousreply 594Last Friday at 8:32 AM

Wait, who has Hunter killed other than Ray?

by Anonymousreply 595Last Friday at 8:37 AM

Nobody else, R595. He only killed Ciara’s brother Ray, who was married to Mel.

by Anonymousreply 596Last Friday at 9:10 AM

Ah, ok.

Which episode was this? I don't recall NuBen in glasses.

by Anonymousreply 597Last Friday at 10:52 AM

Bajour!

by Anonymousreply 598Last Friday at 11:25 AM

R597 Is it even from EastEnders? Maybe it's from another show.

by Anonymousreply 599Last Friday at 11:27 AM

I wish he would keep the glasses on . Ben without glasses doesn't work for me .

From what I recall, there were no scenes where Ben and Callum could have met during their very brief time on the show together in January 2018.

Halfway showed up at the very end of the January 1st episode when The Big Heist started to go bad and Mick recognized him when the doors of the van were flung open. Even we didn't know who he was.

As for Ben, he was already out of Walford by the January 12th episode on his way to France.

In between those two weeks, there were only a couple of episodes wherein they both appeared, and I don't think their characters were ever in the same scene.

Halfwit was laying low at the pub with The Carters.

Meanwhile, Ben was already planning his great escape. His scenes during this time were primarily amounted to him commiserating with Jay over Abi's "death." .. Having a veiled goodbye-farewell with Phil. .. Gifting Karhy with the piece of jewelry and selling the rest. .. And things like seeing him prep to leave with the cash, then Mel showing up at the garage already sniffing around. .. Then, he was off.
