EastEnders on Britbox US
I'm aware that since the new episodes ended due to COVID that the BBC has been showing behind-the-scenes episodes with some of the show's actors.
Britbox US does not have the license to show them. For those of you in the UK, how are the current episodes ?
Can't wait for "Season Two" to start up in the fall. What are your predictions?

Just watch them on dailymotion.com. Google "dailymotion Eastenders 22nd June 2020" and you will see last week's episode.

Ian is now a cartoon villain. He and Sharon go back to the first years. The writing is terrible. At one point they are talking and Ian says "My nan used to say..." and Sharon says nothing. How much effort and smarts would it take for the writers to insert a normal human response from Sharon, "I remember your nan." THAT would humanize them both which might make it a more difficult storyline to write.
|by Anonymous||reply 8||10/02/2020|
R8 I agree. Why do actors not object to something that doesn't sit with the history of their character?
And Sharon did nothing to lead him on so I don't even understand how the writers can create such a stupid situation where Sharon has to go to war with him. And has been said, it would make much more sense for Ian to buy The Vic to salve his guilt rather than try to get into Sharon's bloomers.

EastEnders is one of my all-time favorite shows. I started watching here in the U.S. on the local PBS station in the mid 80s. It used to come on weeknights. Years later they switched it from weeknights to just two episodes per week. Unfortunately, because of that we are now about 11 years behind what’s being shown in the U.K. I do have BritBox and I’m loving it because I’m watching the old episodes on PBS and the new episodes on BritBox.
The Chantell story is very powerful and there’s more to come I’m sure. I love my original characters Ian, Sharon, and Ian‘s mom Kathy. I don’t like the story line between Ian and Sharon. I’ve always loved their friendship and I don’t appreciate her writers doing that to them. Plus, I’m bracing myself for when Sharon finds out what Ian did to her son. Phil and Max are still trash. Love my beloved Denise. My favorite new characters, for me, are Linda, Karen, and that hot ass Kheerat. His mother Suki is a real bitch and she needs a good EastEnders ass whipping.
Is it just me or is every East Indian matriarch that has appeared on this show is portrayed as a controlling bitch?

R21, I have been rewatching the original episodes on Dailymotion since lockdown and am precisely at the point of Authur's breakdown.
|by Anonymous||reply 23||10/02/2020|
r22 They write "types" as much then as they do now, but few characters seem real as they did before. There are many women like Karen - supremely trashy, happy-go-lucky, family-oriented but not really caring that she's a shit mother - but no one acts and talks like her. When she described her dream date with Billy as a rom-com at the multiplex and fried chicken and a drink at the Prince Albert, I sat there thinking they're indicating who she is through the dialogue but in a way that no one speaks.
That Danny Dyer is a very good actor, much better than his filmography suggests, helps Mick a lot.
It made sense that Callum is gay but they've stopped developing him. And King Fug Stuart? Have they dropped the whole Committing A Hate Crime On The Night Of Pride when he gay bashed Ben? There is a mix of occasional excellent writing and a lot of stuff that almost works but doesn't.

I don't know why but I love that some Americans are fascinated with EastEnders. It's such a British thing to me - there must be loads of references you guys don't understand at all.
The new 'season' has been ok so far, there have been a few cringey moments where they have shown couples 'kissing' but because they are doing social distancing they are not actually kissing. They are handling it fairly well I think.

There's a post in the other EE thread which is paywalled that Ian will be killed off. I can't imagine that. He's one of the legacy characters left, not only from the first episode but from the first years. That would be a big deal.

Such a cull. Chantelle - aww. Max - finally! Jags - good luck with the music career. Kush - if he doesn’t go shirtless again, I riot.
There have been so many casting fuckups in the Oates/Sen era. Peter Beale is very bland. Dottie looks and acts like a smelly pig. The 3 Sikh guys can’t really act.
At least Habiba and Iqra and Bobby Beale all improved quickly.

Years ago - early 90s I guess, I was very into Eastenders for a while. I even motored out to the studios occasionally, where other fans would gather on the streets around the studio.
One day one of the residents of the street took me up to his flat and lo and behold he had a full view of Albert Square from his living room.
This was the era of Sanje & Mina and Adam Woodyatt and that Collins gurl were married. I'm too bad with names to remember who else. The actress who played his mother was having a lot of problems in real life. I even read her book. I don't recognise the person I was then.

Eastenders have become a burden to watch. Even the early 2000s or late 1990s were better. The characters are so small and cartoon like. No one really cares about them. I force myself to watch it hoping it will turn around. Here's an opinion: Eastenders is roughly an accurate depiction of characters in the real world. And people are just shitty cartoon-like humanoids now!

Too bad they don't want to do something different and provocative, cuz I can think of one way for Peter to make some cash pretty quickly to send to homeless Lauren and Louie.
Hollyoaks did it with gay Harry, but this would be a G4P rentboy story with Peter. Has any soap done that yet? And it would fit right in with him being a fledgling personal trainer.

R151 Right! That would be another idea. .. And if broke Peter didn't even have the resources to set up his own cam equipment, then he could go to something like a flirt4free studio operator and do chats and performances in one of their "hotels" til he made enough to venture out on his own. .. He's so tall, that it would be believable to learn that Peter's proportionate peter has become very popular very quickly. .. I could also see a future story where some wealthy guy becomes slightly obsessed with him and wants him to be exclusive.

When Pete was a kid, he was a sweet kid. Now he’s an ass. I hate how he treats Bobby. Lucy wasn’t a big lost. She was such a bratty annoying bitch.
|by Anonymous||reply 155||12/02/2020|
You’d think he’d have worked through his anger at Bobby during the years he was in New Zealand. But this show, time and time again, “freezes” its characters so when they return to Walford after extended time away we not only don’t learn of what they were up to during that time we see no character development whatsoever. I’m looking especially at you, Kathy.
|by Anonymous||reply 156||12/02/2020|
Lol yea Kathy is pretty much the same person she always was in spite of all those years on the run.
At least when Sharon came back in 2001 she was written as more confident, sure of herself and stronger.
When she came back in 2012 she was a darker character with a drug problem, less cheerful because of all she'd gone through and mature because she had a kid.
Peter is still a good guy, they just need to twist him into someone more brooding to fit the story lines.
|by Anonymous||reply 157||12/02/2020|
R157, there was a tiny hint of a darker, even ruthless Kathy when she first reappeared but that vanished soon enough and she was back to being that reassuring shoulder to cry on buttering sandwiches in the cafe. The woman was most likely a serious grifter all those years she was on the run with Gavin. I’d like to see one of their victims turn up in Walford.

Sharon will no doubt be reduced to a catatonic blob when her scheme is finally exposed. Of course this will happen on or around the anniversary of Denny’s death next month. Playing catatonic is the only thing Leticia Dean is good at. Remember how Sharon responded to Dennis’ murder? Although apparently Dean was reeling from the collapse of her marriage, was in an extreme depression and the script supposedly had to he rewritten to give her as little dialogue as possible because poor Tish had to be spoon fed her lines.
|by Anonymous||reply 200||01/08/2021|
R200 she either goes catatonic or flies off somewhere. Saying that, I'm glad they've been putting her front and centre for the last 2 years. Before then she barely got an interesting storyline.
I think Letitia is an excellent actress and has kept Sharon very distinct. Saying that, I wish she'd watch her only fitness DVD and lose some weight. She's got a very pretty face but I'm sick of seeing her in baggy black tops.

Her acting has always been either stiff or over the top. There’s a reason she’s never been nominated for any awards.
