EASTENDERS IS GREAT AGAIN*


Whoops! Sorry if you've been following our recent advice and avoiding EastEnders on account of its utter rubbishness – if you missed last night's, you missed the first almost-brilliant episode in aaaages.
Best bits:
» Billy Mitchell starting work in the video shop and, on ploughing through some lapsed memberships, discovering that Dirty Den owed £10,000 in fines for a copy of Porky's 2 he took out in 1988 and never returned.
» Billy confronting Den with this information and being told to get stuffed.
» Kate in her ridiculous hat after having all her hair cut off by Chrissie last week.
» No Ferreiras.
» Kat and Zoe giving two media tossers a good pasting in the club.
» Martin and Sonia settling down for a snog-up in front of a video of The Hulk, only to be interrupted by Pauline, back early from the pub and demanding a cup of tea. And Sonia's face as a hand-knitted tea cosy made her realise she was going to be trapped in the Fowler house of horrors for the rest of her life.
» Pauline, contemplating the tragedy of the Hulk's situation, and tenderly reflecting on how she herself would react to such a tragic creature if he appeared in her life. ("I fink they should just have shot that 'Ulk!")
Great stuff – keep it up, EastEnders people.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
