Advantages: Storylines and characters!
Disadvantages: Only shown four times a week!
Eastenders is in no doubt at the heart of the entire nation! One of the longest running soaps in the UK, you can gaurentee some kind of drama in Eastenders!
This show has now been running for 25 years and has become more and more popular as time has passed. Everyone I know loves Eastenders and it is always a talking point with whoever you meet. When their is a big storyline it is the talk of the nation. Although I do know some people who seem to take it too seriously!!
With its memorable story lines and explosive characters you have to love good old Eastenders. When it first started the show was aired twice a week but due to its ever increasing fans the show is now shown four times every week! They even aired a special live version of the show to celebrate the shows anniversary. This was an amazing feat and the show was very entertaining and successful.
I love to watch Eastenders and have been doing so for many years. Although the show is by no means intellectually stimulating it is extremely entertainly with storylines like who killed Archie/ Phil (vote-which one was better??) and with its long standing chartachers like Dot Cotton and Ian Beale. The show is very life like and it is easy to relate to the charaters in the show which is why the show has been successful in appealling to the whole family young and old.
This is a soap which I am sure will be running for another 25 years!
Summary: Albert Square!
