Utter rubbish, not worth 30 minutes on a weekday night
28 February 2004 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Although I may be offending the whole of the UK by saying this, I have to say that 'EastEnders' is the most pointless, space wasting load of s**it broadcast the BBC. Overseas people must think that Brits are off their heads when they watch this stuff. All it involves is misery, pain and depression and how some of these actors get jobs in that profession is a mystery for example Steve McFadden as Phil Mitchell with his single facial expression and Little Mo sitting trying to look dramatically upset when her psycho husband bellows at her in his loud Scottish voice are just laughable. Also when you have the BBC suggesting that this the best programme on TV you know there is something wrong with the nation. So readers avoid rubbish like this if you can help it.
