Any GNs enjoying the scary drama in Emmerdale at moment? Think its beautifully shot and actors seem very authentic in their'terrifying' moments!

I'm fascinated by how athletic they all are. Prospective olympians?

I absolutely love Emmerdale and have not bothered with EastEnders for years and Coronation Street for about eight months…. I agree it is very well acted and the scenery was beautiful…

I've never seen an episode.

The Emmerdale drama trumps the Corrie one but both leave a lot to be desired.
I feel more invested with the Emmerdale characters than the Corrie ones at the moment. With the exception of Roy Cropper of course.

I thought both corrie and Emmerdale have been completely OTT this week. What on earth possessed them?

Yes I’m enjoying it. I only caught the second episode last night as I was at book club.. How did the fire start?

I watch Emmerdale and Corrie and have been glued to both this week. I’ve found Meena’s pantomime villain style acting OTT for weeks and she went into overdrive with it this week.

The rope bridge scenes were dramatic but the maize maze scenes made me laugh. Andrea could have broken her way out through the stalks of maize to escape from Meena.

I wonder if that’s the end of Andrea. I suspect she might end up in hospital with scary Meena skulking round the corridors intent on finishing her off.

I have enjoyed it. It's a well acted drama.

Very good acting, watch it ever night.

I think both Emmerdale & Coronation Street's dramatic episodes have been over the top... especially as they are all shown before the watershed time..?
( I'm still watching though. smile

Ah but this is soapland Janejudge suspend disbelief smile

JaneJudge Sat 23-Oct-21 12:18:08

even for soapland it was far fetched and how long before they re watch the water camera thing? it will be the big Christmas storyline I imagine and really David is not a good catch is he? all those children and he runs a shop...though I imagine it sells nice cheese and nice bread..I have changed my mind. He is a good catch wink

How did the fire start?

I think David's hair is awful.

I cannot see how Meena will get caught out and she will never admit to her previous crimes if she does.

JaneJudge Sat 23-Oct-21 12:25:41

The flare gun started the fire apparently

Yes, they could all have escaped the maize maze by crashing through the plants. A farm near us has one and it wouldn't be at all difficult - but apart from that small detail its more believable than those weird drains in Corrie.
But I agree with sodapop Roy is a star, and its a shame Dev's been turned into a clown.
And those sinkholes! Are they going to demolish the whole street? All we need now is a WW2 bomb.

sodapop Sat 23-Oct-21 13:01:36

Don't give them any more ideas Exdancer I won't be able to sleep worrying about it all grin

Shinamae Sat 23-Oct-21 20:42:35

I think Roy should move to Emmerdale!! 🤓
