Death by Posting!

Death by Posting! (11/12)



  1. ^ Phew! Thanks Foxy. This thread was being dragged down. I won't comment on the half truths in the above poster's comments about me, as I would much rather move on now, and get back on topic.
  2. What a horrible, condescending post. Having a different of opinion does not give anyone the right to belittle somebody elses. Carwary, you are fully entitled to see the characters how YOU see them, and BTW I agree 100% with your viewpoint.
  3. I watched it with the sound down so missed that bit. It's probably just Charlie's messed up knee-jerk reaction thinking that she has to make up to Angelo for lost time. The poor girl really needs to learn some balance, but I'm hopeful that will come. She's new to proper normal relationships so she's still finding her way I guess.
  4. But that is exactly the point. Charlie has no idea how to react to these feelings she has. She doesn't know that she's in love with him, she can't face up to it. Her going to counselling was a major step in the right direction for her. Surely if she does like you say, and freak out again, then the recent break up, followed by the counselling, will have served no purpose. This show has always been about healing and reconciliation. That is the example they are setting for people in Charlie's position - people who struggle with human relations can get help and learn to have more fulfilling relationships. It's a very positive message, one which I doubt the show would throw away by having her revert to type having come so far.
  5. I thought it was very a positive thing to show Charlie seeing a counsellor about her relationship issues after she and Angelo broke up. Charlie has been going around in circles where relationships are concerned, since she came into the show. Not just with men, but Joey too obviously and also Ruby, and her initial reaction to Morag. She has always been like a square peg in a round hole, not really fitting in properly, or knowing a consistent way to behave. Now, she has actually fallen for somebody, and it has happened over the 2 and a half years she has known Angelo. She has built up a relationship with someone from the ground up. They have both seen each other through their darkest times. She has developed feelings which are unfamilar, but she knows that they are good and she doesn't want to continue on her path of self-destruction. They way she feels with Angelo makes her happy. She went to Michael because she knew that feeling was good and she wanted to work out a way to keep it, to not continue to wreck things. I think it's been a marvellous journey for Charlie, and a marvellous exploration of human beings and human relationships, and I applaude H&A for that.
  6. I haven't been watching lately so I can't vouch for what you're all saying, but I didn't realised they were a) being hyped, b) being set up to a be a golden couple, or c) so unpopular, so your opinions all surprise me. From my reading of the episode summaries, TV week and spoilers, and the odd episode, I have found very little on them and very little focus on their relationship at all really since Charlie's counselling, until this week that is.
  7. I haven't been watchingf H&A for a couple of months but will be tuning in again now that Charlie and Angelo are back on, or at least their love story is back on the agenda. I just love them!
  8. ^ I think Marilyn's return is realistic. It ties in with all that Alf has always said about the Bay, and Sally too when she was leaving, that the Bay is always home and that it spellbinds people. Marilyn explained too that she felt drawn back to it.
  9. We need to drag this one back on topic guys. So, what do you think we will see with Mazza now that she's back? What is her secret that she alluded to over dinner with Alf? She said that a few things had happened to her and she didn't want to talk about them. Is she a runaway bride or something?
  10. I hate to stray off topic (again!) but when was the "Golden Era"?
  11. That would have been Chas, they weren't exactly the best of friends. Thanks! I must admit, it's not a a show I like but did go through a phase of watching it about 5 years ago.
  12. I'm really liking Justin, and the actor too. Something very natural and honest about the way he portrayals the character. There is no big drama or angst for a change, which is refreshing in a new character. I hope he sticks around and is not just a short-term guest.
  13. Did people see Emily's interview on Sunrise? It is up on the official site. I had to laugh at her description of Emmerdale. I don't think I ever saw Louise interact with a sheep all the time she was on it! Also her comment on it sometimes being minus 4 degrees! It seems so normal to me to be going to work in minus 4 temperatures, but it must have been hard for her, being from Australia. I love how she has slipped back into the character of Marilyn. There is no hint of Louise Appleton in it, and there was no hint of Marilyn in Louise either. I only make the point because Marilyn is such a distinctive character that I would have thought it tricky to pick her up after such a long time. What a great actress! Do you remember on Emmerdale she used to be called "Skippy"? I can't remember who by now...probably Viv. I love how UK soaps can get away with being non-pc.
  14. Haha! Just reading all the replies now, since my post on 12 March, and I am sorry I said anything I love them together PRECISELY because they are pretty and lovable, and I couldn't give a toss how few dimensions Angelo might have to his character! It's the same reason I adored Jack and Martha. I rely on Eastenders for my "soap character development" fix. H&A serves other purposes for me: 1) It's always sunny (which when you live in Ireland, seeing sunshine, albeit on TV is a huge factor in the enjoyment of the day); 2) it has such an idealistic view on love, life and redemption and; 3) It is total and utter escapism for 22 minutes a day! Bliss!
