    Emmerdale Forgotten moments of deja vu

    Because it was the storyline that perhaps saved the show from cancellation perhaps, and although other soaps did depict plane crashes before, this was the first time it was done on such a major scale and was aired 5 years and one week after the Lockerbie And it did change the soap genre...

    Coronation Street Who needs canning, what needs sorting out?

    I definitely agree with you in that Corrie seems to be stuck in the 2000s, to be honest this has always been Corrie’a problem, there was a news article regarding Corrie in 1967, the era of Carnaby Street and hippies and the summer of love, yet according to the article the main criticism was that...

    How long til they're gone?

    I agree that Hollyoaks could be the first to go, it’s never been in the same league as the big three, even in the 1990s it was the poor relation to Brookside, had Brookside not been axed in the early 2000s then Hollyoaks probably would have been binned off years ago, it only seem to become...

    Emmerdale 3 new characters join

    I was only joking.....making a joke on how most new characters seem to be Dingles

    Which series do you wanna re-watch?

    I’m currently rewatching Only Fools and Horses, probably for the 2000th time I might add :cool: and each time I see it it gets funnier and funnier. It wasn’t just comedy either it was also a drama, with some heartbreaking and heartwarming moments, The way Del is willing to put himself in harms...

    Emmerdale Should Emmerdale go back to being Emmerdale Farm?

    Yeah Andy can stay away but his brother Daz could come back and reunite with Victoria Yes the only Sugden’s left now are Victoria, Harry, Sarah and Jack. Seb is living with Rebecca in Liverpool Im fairly certain Sandie herself has grandchildren now that could come into the show, I would love...

    Emmerdale Should Emmerdale go back to being Emmerdale Farm?

    My favourite photo of the clan, The Sugden, Merrick, Skilbeck, Hughes and Bates altogether in one photo taken at Kate & Joe’s wedding in 1989 I really hope that Sandie, The Skilbeck clan and Kathy come back for Annie’s funeral and I hope that the Sugden clan can be restored to its former...

    Emmerdale Forgotten moments of deja vu

    Because ITV consider Emmerdale to be the inferior sibling to Corrie. And they aren’t interested in anything about the show from before 1995, even the infamous Plane Crash of 1993/94 was barely given a mention in the Emmerdale @40 and that not only was the storyline that saved the soap from...

    Emmerdale Major news about next week (Possible spoilers)

    Most of the villagers today weren’t even in the village much less the show when Annie was around, Victoria is her granddaughter so she and Harry should be centre stage along with Sarah Jnr, Jack Jnr , Andy and Robert if possible, this is why it does need to centre around the Sugden’s and have...

    Emmerdale Major news about next week (Possible spoilers)

    Agreed, the Dingles worked better in the 90s/00s when they shared the spotlight with the Tate and Windsor families, and weren’t adding to the family tree for the sake of it. Annie Sugden was the original matriarch who stayed with the show for nearly a quarter of a century, and was head of one...

    EastEnders Ian Beale - *contains spoilers*

    For some reason I want Dennis’s death to remain a secret for many years to come, EastEnders was good at keep secrets for several years. Michelle never told Sharon that Den was the father of Vicki until 1989, Michelle kept another baby daddy secret for even longer from the Mitchell’s

    Emmerdale Major news about next week (Possible spoilers)

    I wonder who will come back for Annie’s funeral? Hopefully Robert and Andy can somehow make an appearance, Sandie Merrick and the Skilbeck clan returning would be awesome! With Annie gone it really will be an end of an era as the ties to Emmerdale Farm are finally snipped I really do think...

    Emmerdale 2 years away from the Big 50!

    I don’t recall them doing anything for the 20th anniversary, they did however celebrate its 21st anniversary in 1993 and while they celebrated the current characters they also celebrated the past too

    Emmerdale 2 years away from the Big 50!

    As long as they do celebrate the past as in before 1994. The issue with the 40th anniversary documentaries is that it focused too much on the recent times It’s just nice to have throwbacks to the 70a and 80s and not just from 2007 onwards

    An alternate exit for Pam...?

    I would have Bobby bonding with Jenna and their child as a catalyst for Pam leaving, she would see that Bobby is starting to drift away from her. This would effect Christopher too as he feels neglected by Bobby, added to this would be JR deliberately stirring the pot and dropping hints that...

    Emmerdale Should Emmerdale go back to being Emmerdale Farm?

    One could argue the change was gradual, from the time the word FARM was dropped to the time the plane was dropped onto Beckindale it was still largely a familiar show, 1995 was the real change, by then Annie & Amos had left the village barring the couple of cameos in 1995 & 1996, Joe was dead...

    Emmerdale The Sugden family

    Been watching a few 80s episodes but not all of them are on YouTube, we’re Jack and Sandie close? I read on Wikipedia that Jack gave advice to Joe regarding being a stepfather when Joe married Kate and he was having trouble with Mark in particular. It was said that Jack was very close to Sandie...

    Emmerdale Actress Paula Tilbrook passes away

    Betty in many ways somewhat replaced Annie as the beloved village stalwart, it did feel that she had always been there. such a shame, we need more Betty’s and less Kerry’s in Emmerdale right now

    DALLAS: what made it stand out above the other soaps?

    In its later seasons, I had a feeling that it saw itself above being a soap opera, the early seasons never gave off this vibe, but that’s just me I may have to rewatch it again
