I’d have liked to have seen him and Dodger be friends as I think Laurie and Danny got on really well off set. I don’t know what he’d have had a reason to interact with Browning for tbh but i’m sure I would have enjoyed seeing that.
I really dislike the Lomaxs tbh. I think they’re an awful addition to Hollyoaks, the youngest one and the sister with the baby are ok but I can’t stand the rest (the fact that I can’t remember their names speaks volumnes as to how crap I find them). Plus, I don’t like the fact that they have the overweight sister as a kind of comedy character, why can’t they ever just have a normal looking girl on Hollyoaks who gets to do drama without being the court jester as well?
Ste is really hit and miss for me and has been for a long time. I don’t really buy the whole ‘happy famillies’ thing with the Lomaxs, it doesn’t sit well with me knowing where his character has come from. It also annoys me how quickly he has forgotten about Doug. I hate how Hollyoaks write grief, we’ve seen a little from Dennis at least but nothing from any one else. Look at Holly, she’s quite happy to be with that bore Jason now.
Vincent is not a good character, I don’t see why both George and Pheobe love him tbh. He’s a nice person but he’s friggin dull. His storyline has been awful, it’s a waste of George and involves far too much of Pheobe and her usual brand of idiocy (sorry, can’t stand her). When he made that speech about George in front of everyone I thought it was absurd. I’m sure it was meant to be cute and aspirational but it was just so unrealistic, as if that would happen. Its like George making that crack about that dude’s clothes and that shutting him up. As if that guy would have been bothered about that. It’s been bad writting from start to finish. Plus, how come all of a sudden Vincent has had sex with a man? I was under the impression that he had been repressing his sexuality until he met George.
I really don’t have a problem with Dodger, I like him but i’m also pretty indifferent towards him. I don’t like the idea of him and Maxine though tbh, that doesn’t work for me at all, but mind you, it’s better than him and Theresa. I thought the Will reveal and exit were awesome, I loved those episodes and Danny Mac really pulled it out the bag. I like Danny Mac a lot, he’s such a nice guy.
In general, I am enjoying the Sienna and Tom storyline, the Patrick and Maxine one and the Cindy/Mercedes/Lindsey one and i’ve also liked seeing more of Tony and Dirk. However, I can’t really be bothered with most of the other storylines. I think Ziggy is awful, truly awful, I can’t stand that storyline. I hate Robbie, Finn and Jason. I hate the rest of the Roscoes although I can tolerate Joe and Freddie - but if i’m honest, I don’t think either of the actors is as strong as the material they get and that kind of ruins it for me. I hate Frasier and his new horrible daughter (although I think she could grow on me) and as for Trevor - as soon as I start to come around to him he does something horrible again but to be fair he is a good character. Darren has been ruined for me and so has Frankie. Tilly, Esther and Ruby remain likeable yet dull as ever. I quite like the addition of Chloe though. I’m not looking forward to JP’s big storyline because I know it will involve Danny and I find the fact that he’s supposedly in love with him implausible. I can’t stand Danny enough as it is. I like Carmel, Jim and Dennis but it’s the same situation as with Dodger, I’m fairly indifferent towards them. I hate the way they write Theresa now, she didn’t used to be so shallow and thoughtless. I don’t know why they’ve started to write her like that, it annoys me. It’s such a waste of Jorgie’s talent. Also I cannot stand Sinead at all, she does my head in.
No, not really because that would have deprived us of Laurie’s excellent performance in Later. I doubt we’d have gotten much more than we actually got anyway.
Long-term, as i’ve said before, i’d really liked him to have got some kind of addiction and to have fallen off the rails. I think that would have been really good considering Martha’s situation. I think it would have been great to include him in an unrequited love story either as the object or subject of it. It would have been nice to ultimately see him in a happy relationship (or a Hollyoaks version of that, at least) and maybe become a Dad. I’d also really have liked him to get a partner in crime, by which I mean a good friend who he could get up to hijinks with who was naughtier than George but not as naughty as Robbie. Speaking of George, i’d really have liked some focus on their bond again.
Me too. I liked the scenes from New Year when Callum was filling in for Ash at Chez Chez and having to deal with Mitzeee and Maxine - and clearly finding them both a bit exhausting. It would have been funny to see how he reacted to them.
Yeah I think so but he’d annihilate him easily if they became enemies (which they probably would). Brendan is much more clever than Trevor, whose a bit of a div really.
1. Callum :(
They are but the ratings are up apparently so I guess people like shit stories…
I’m not enjoying any of it. The only storylines i’m watching for it Tom/Sienna and Lindsey/Cindy/Mercedes’ plot. I really don’t like any of the new characters. I don’t feel like i’m watching Hollyoaks anymore. I used to be unmissable for me. Now I miss it reguarly.
Yeah, he was a lot more selfish and insensitive than usual but by the time he died he’d come to his senses and gone back to his usual self. I wish he hadn’t, if he hadn’t remembered who he was and who he wasn’t he’d still be alive :(
I’m not sure although I do think he might be working on something but i’ve no idea what or whether its something we’ll see.
Breaking Bad is no longer in production…
