*Beware this post is one massive rant*
I don't want to moan too much, but I've watched EastEnders for years and at the moment, it has to be in the worst state I've seen it in. What on earth is going on? The storylines are unoriginal... everyone seems to be having an affair or just sleeping with someone... this is not entertaining to watch! What happened to the storyline with the Golds? ... It was revealed Jodie wasn't Harry's daughter, should we have cared? Because I didn't really. The 'duff duffs' have been awful recently. Jack and Max going off together to 'sort out' Harry ala the Mitchell brothers didn't leave me wanting to see more! Now Harry seems to have disappeared. Is he coming back? Because I thought he was meant to be this scary new villain!
The characters are all over the place... Jane seems to have had a personality transplant and is not the character she's been like in the past!
The pacing is all over the place - some characters we don't see for weeks, then they pop up again with a story, like the Beales for example! There is no consistency. If we don't see characters for a number of weeks, then they return on screen with their story.. how are we meant to care what happens to them?
The stories are all terrible at the moment. Unoriginal. Uninspiring. Jay becoming a 'Mitchell' with him flooring Connor lol!? Oh please! I did have to laugh at that... so cringey. Then we have this ongoing Ryan/Stacey/Janine stuff ... Janine's character is being ruined by this story!
The continuity is terrible. Nobody seemed to have been affected by the Queen Vic fire. Stacey was trapped in the fire with her baby, but a few months later she's back working behind the bar as if it never happened! Phil seems to be over his drug addiction.
The comedy is hit and miss. Sometimes it's cringeworthy and has obviously been shoehorned into the script!
EastEnders is turning into a joke.
Please add your own thoughts. Feel free to disagree etc.
I think Tuesday's episode is going to be my last one. Please someone let me know when it's got better.
