Eastenders

This show must have had cast of thousands by now.

I don't watch Eastenders very much these days though I used to watch it regularly.

It is well written - if Charles Dickens was alive now he would have probably been one of their leading script-writers! - and well acted and was a departure from many British Soaps such as Coronation Street which again though well written and acted are located in a bubble without much base in reality. Eastenders is in a bit of a bubble too -no-one reallys live in a place like that do they where no-one owns a washing-machine and spend all their spare hours and cash in one pub! - but was more gritty dealing with life has most of us experience it. Another soap out at the time it started, Brookside, dealt with similar topics but was even more doom-and-gloom and over-the-top tragedy than found in Albert Square.

But now I feel it has become formulaic spinning out the same old stories and tragedies - especially tragedies! - and I have lost interest in the show and its characters.

I like the quote that most of now live in a world where our friends are Friends and our neighbours are Neighbours! And well I no longer wish the inhabitants of Walford to be my friends or neighbours.
