Eastenders Groundhog Day

Yo guys. Been away for a while. Just err… taking in the show.

But there’s something i’ve discovered recently.

I could stop watching for a few months, come back, and one of two things could be happening.

1. Dean, Shirley and Buster would STILL be putting on a ‘united front’, going into the vic or any other location where Mick and/or Linda or other members of the family happen to be, saying or doing something ridiculous then acting like someone had made their dog have an unprovoked crap on their lawn when they got chucked out.

2. Tina and/or Shirley would be trying to make a truce with Mick by organising a family dinner or some sort of event at the pub, only to act like someone had made their dog have an unprovoked crap on their lawn when Dean isn’t allowed to come too.

3. Mick would be discovering Dean in random places and threatening him, with Dean desperately trying to prove his ‘innocence’.

And some other variations of this too.

It’s like Eastenders groundhog day.

Also, consider the following:

Shirley Carter asked for the infamous ‘ten grand off Phil’ and thought this was a) enough to buy Mick and Linda out of the pub and b) something that could actually happen. Phil, for some reason unknown to man, actually gave it to her. In wads of cash tied up in special ‘money ties’ that Phil must have a drawer full of at home just in case. Then she broke into a garage that wasn’t hers or even Phils, went to the trouble of getting a grindy thingy and a welding mask, going to the vic, getting a ladder, climbing up it, undoing the screws on the sign above the door, getting the sign, climbing down the ladder, putting the mask on, going into the bar, putting the sign on the bar and grinding her name off the sign, then slapping down the wads of cash on the bar. Only to be told “no, it’s not going to happen”, and then having to take all of the equipment back. Mysteriously I haven’t seen her give Phil his ten grand back though. Oh well, he’s got plenty more ten grands for whoever needs ‘his help’.

To nicely round off this post, here are a selection of unrelated videos of Dean getting threatened etc.

LOLstenders # 1 – “The Epic Queen Vic Brawl”

Welcome to the first ever LOLstenders, those moments when EastEnders seriously attempts comedy. This one is a gem from the summer of 2012, right in the middle of… yep, you guessed it, the infamous “Who did Kat?” storyline. You must watch the video to get the full experience but in a nutshell, the men of Albert Square turn a tiny little tiff about the pub football team into a full-on comedy brawl that seemingly all the males of walford become so passionate about that they would trash their local pub in order to prevail. Michael tries to have a calm, suave drink at the bar & keeps getting knocked over, Fatboy falls head-first onto big Mo and Shirley’s table, someone throws a stool, Syed pours ice down Derek’s back, Max walks past the Vic and… you really have to see that to grasp the true brilliance of that moment, and all the while Alfie is being a mini-buffoon and Kat is shrieking “ALFAAAAAAAAY!” (whilst staring uneasily at each man involved in her storyline.)

Experience this classic LOLstenders below. Don’t worry, the fight gets stopped with a blow horn.
