Eastenders

Just listening to the normal screeching dialogue in the other room as my wife watches it, does anyone still like this?
 
Tired hackneyed story lines that go on for ever, bad acting, unlikeable characters, non of the humour and pathos of Coronation Street, when I have watched if for 5 mins I see nothing to redeem it.
 
Its awful.

    Dreadful, you just know the people in it are like that in real life too.  'Ian Beale' syndrome.

    I've never been a fan of any soaps but I do think Eastenders is particularly s**t these days, everyone is always angry or depressed.

    Stenders is pretty rubbish these days, my misses gets really annoyed when i 'predict' the predictable story line or even finish the actors sentences !! , it must be rubbish !! lol

    The best actor in the whole show has got to be Phil, he is probably the most convincing alcoholic i have ever seen on TV, most people just look ridiculous when trying to portray a drunk, but this bloke has got it down to an absolute T.

    Was well funny when he was sat in his car with 'Shell' and she took his keys and Phil come out with the drunken slury line -     Burrrrrrpppp eerrrr .... are you gonna give me those keys or am i gonna have to punch your in the face !!   lol , classic !

    Old peggy cracks me up -

    Get oooouuuuutttt my pub .... your barred !

    The Drinks are on the house !! (must be loaded, if someone called that out in my local i think the regulars would do about 2k worth of drinks in one hit !)

    and not forgetting the peggy 'Backhander' ..... many a faceslap victims have fallen due to a mighty mitchell bitch slap.

    The worst actors in it have to be that bird that went to prison ( patrics niece ??) Shocking !
    Also phils son is pretty pony.

    x2.
    Brookside was the last soap worth watching.

    Phil in Eastenders is as scary as a new-born mouse.

    same old crap spouted out year after year!! 

    lucky my misus isnt really into tv or soaps.  i couldnt stand having to sit thro that depressing mind numbing drivel.

    so many of my mates (and my dad) are forced to sit thro all the soaps every night on the box.  thats my idea of hell

    My wife watches Emerdale, it's just as bad.  The same old crap all the time from what I can see.  Listening to her and her mum talking about it you would think the people in it are real.

    Whenever I come in the room and the wife is watching it I make her turn it over.  Mind numbing depression inducing sh1te, including that stupid farm one as well.....  I let her off watching Corrie though, that is just about bearable.....  Didn't Brookie go all hardcore towards the end with proper swearing in and the like?

    My 3 favourite things:
    1.  Meeting new people
    2.  Power Tools
    3.  Unblocking my drains....
