When in doubt, just watch TV

Posted on

Rather than stew & deliberate over the things I really want to say (because nobody wants to hear the inner wanderings of my head) I will mostly instead be spending the day watching the #EElive Twitter feed to see how many times there’s a picture of poor Jo Joyner’s face from last night’s Eastenders.

#HowsAdam now trending.

      I don’t watch Eastenders usually (far too much shouting), but I do like a bandwagon to hurl myself upon so I’m all over these semi-live shows this week. I don’t actually care who killed the character I don’t really care about, but you gotta love a live soap. If only for the potential for a cock up. 
I was telling the Childerbeast last night (as we watched Tamwar playing on his mobile on set, then reading his live tweets) I remember watching the 1st ever episode 30 years ago when I was 13. They asked me if it was in black & white or hand-drawn! I said yeah, black & white with subtitles and a frantic piano soundtrack as Lou Beale was tied to the tracks of Walford Underground station by the bad guy. Cheeky sods!

I also need to make a birthday cake today for Al. That might not go well. Could be a Dame Edna moment. Though hopefully I won’t need boltcutters to get the cake out of the tin. I’ll keep you updated. Xxx

Not loathed by totally everyone so that's good right?

  1. So Eastenders is still going then? Thought it had gone the way of Brookside. I remember seeing the first episode of that on the new-fangled Channel 4 in 1983 and thinking how un-Liverpool it was (I was living in Aigburth L17 at the time). Live Eastenders sounds like it could be Acorn Antiques without the fancy editing.
