I encourage you guys to download the February 11, 2010 episode of Emmerdale. This is the one where Maisie has her complete breakdown. Good stuff.

I jumped out of my seat when she smashed her head in the Woolpack bathroom mirror. Wasn't expecting that at all. Awesome

I'm watching June, but I will try and find those episodes with Maise's breakdown. Sounds AMAZING!

Wow, I can't believing I am discussing a soap opera. It's been a LOOOOONG time since I watched one for more than 1 episode. LOL

Well, this one is definitely worth watching! I used to follow all four Brit soaps! EMMERDALE and CORONATION STREET are/were my favorites and I loved EASTENDERS! HOLLYOAKS is a bit different but STILL was better than any American soap! I WAS going to start my catching up with CORRIE but Amello started posting a lot about EMMERDALE and since I knew most of the characters he was writing of, I decided to start there! I'm SO glad I did!

I am pretty surprised that Holly actually did steal that ketamine bottle.

Okay, I need help with two new storylines I've been introduced to. David and Leyla... what is up with them? And what is up with his business with that woman Tania?

And then we have the wedding of Nicola and Jimmy... is there anything going on? She's been pretty rude and annoying... lol

New characters? LoL

David and Leyla are the BEST couple on this show next to CAIN and CHARITY. Just keep watching with Tania as her motives will all be explained to you shortly. If I went into it, I would just spoil it for you. Anyway, David and Leyla are engaged.

Right now you're in the child abuse plot, yeah? Here's what happened ...

Laurel was babysitting some of the kids in the village. Angelica (Jimmy/Nicola's daughter) and Cathy (Bob/Viv's daughter) were both there. Nicola and Laurel are best friends so Nicola went to visit her (for a reason I don't remember) When Laurel left Nicola to take care of the children as she quickly ran an errand, she saw Cathy bite Angelica. In the heat of the moment, Nicola bit Cathy. Viv got word of this and called the cops. Now Nicola is scared she'll go to prison instead of marrying Jimmy, as the court date is the same day.

A few years ago Nicola was a HUGE BITCH on the show. The current producer has mellowed her out a bit and made her more real of a person.

Well they are NEW to me! :lol:


OMG! Nicola BIT a child???

:lol:

Okay, wow..

I have no idea who Cain and Charity are... lol

I like David. I don't have an opinion on Leyla so far. She hasn't been on that much. Tania just showed up in a robe, while David was waiting for her in her living room. I thought she was gonna take it of revealing a naked body underneath it. LOL It didn't happen though..

They have SO MANY characters.. it's so hard to keep track who is with who and stuff.. LOL But I like most of the stuff, so I'll continue.. Hopefully I'll figure out who everyone is.

I have two old men on my screen now and I have no idea who they are.. LOL

Manny, ALL the UK soaps have A LOT of characters. Another reason why they are BETTER.

Yeah, Cain and Charity won't be seen a lot for a bit (Emma Atkins was in contract talks to sign more than just her iniital six month return, plus story was put on hold when DEBBIE (their daughter) went on maternity leave in real life.)

The Tania/David thing will all make sense in the next few episodes. Blackmail and all that ...

Two old men ... Rodney and Charlie is my guess. Though it could be ...

Doug, Sandy, Shadrach, Alan and Eric as well.

I don't know if you'd consider Terry old. (And yes, I am aware you have no clue what the fuck I'm talking about)

Debbie and Andy were NEVER married. The rest is correct. Debbie was a lesbo for a while though, just like her mother! :)

The last episode I watched was July 5th, so I'm about a week behind the current episodes.
