Advantages: Great soap which tackles some delicate subjects
Disadvantages: can be a bit boring and repetative.
I have just sat and watched Eastenders for the first time in about 3 weeks. The storylines were starting to get boring and really didn't interest me at all, however the story with Ethel and Dot at the moment is very touching.
I could hardly watch tonight for the tears, I thought that both June and Gretchen played their parts brilliantly. Its a good storyline to keep bringing up as so many people want Euthanasia to become legal. I think that the friendship that they show is very true and Ethel reminds me a lot of my nan, and boy did she suffer !! I was only a teenager when she was ill but I know that she didn't know who any of us were for about 2 years, so I can understand why Ethel wants to go, before she turns into a 'Lump'
I applaude the writers of Eastenders for tackling a very delicate subject that needs to be addressed, and i'm still wiping the tears from my face ! Brilliant.
