    Charter Update - January 14th, 2013

    It's not funny or clever, and will earn you a one week ban from this forum from this point forward.

    Charter Update - October 31st, 2013

    It is against the charter to drag the Fair City thread off topic conversation/Stephen Jokes.

    Yea didn't even ask to see if it was available or if they could get the keys back. If I was Erica I wouldn't live there either. Pete judging every little thing.

    He has, although I'm not sure why but I remember really not liking him a while back. It might have been around the time him and Damo were fighting, around the time they had the diy shop together.
    Sure it gives us something to comment on

    I never liked him Liz. Contankerous oul yoke. Awful oul chip on his shoulder.

    Very few 'manly' men in FC. Bob is like an oul granny. Alpha Male, Paul, is a bollocks. Hughie is alright, Dean fairly sound too. Leo is ok now but back in the 90s, when he was in his 40s having the fling with Niamh, about 18 and paying for her abortion, he was sleazy, like Bella. Cristiano is ok. Enough said about Will! Doug is getting there, more of a chap than a man. Darragh after a good start, has turned loopy. Lee is a worm.

    Damien, I think it was the poster Fin made a good point. He treats sounder women worse. Wayne, has had a colourful career, suppose not the worst. Cass, all he's missing is a jester's hat. The Ram.. would you trust him with your daughters, sisters, mother or grandmother.

    Sundays synopsis.

    The Doug/Erica + Pete scenes are actually fairly decent.

    The whole Juliet/Ruth combo was always gonna result in a Tik-Tok & Insta storyline; at least it's given both actresses a storyline & Ruth was quite good in her pushback v Paul.

    But if FC do PSB'ing right they'll spin this as "How the Internet can be bad" storyline involving Ruth being exploited in some way, possibly by Juliette deliberately or accidentally/carelessly maybe?

    Loving how Doug & Erica can just go back to the flat above the Pig alright; I prefer the decor if we're being honest with ourselves here.

    Dearbhla & Cian; the actor'd wanna watch out; his storylines look to be petering out if Dearbhlas wandering eyes're leading anywhere with Damien; there's another few weeks til Easter to spin this storyline yet but inevitably Wedding Eve sees a break-up perhaps and Maireads OCD going into over-drive & have a breakdown?

    Meanwhile in steps Will & down the line he avoids a custodial cause he has to care for her?

    Do want to see FC put some effort into the Juliette/Ruth combo; they've never played many scenes before that I've noticed; you'd barely know they were cousins.

    Paul's being a fuddy-duddy I guess but she is what, 11 at best in character terms so he's bang on to pull rank.

    Think Erica, Doug & Ruth had the best scenes & lines in tonights episode; like the scene with Mondo & Juliette at the end where he said she's all grown up too; probably the warmest they've been since filming resumed.

    The whole show is a bit meh at the moment..someone needs to kidnap Paul and lock him in the Bistro freezer....:P

    Has Dean left after Allie? I thought if Brows would cheat it be with him not Damo

    Real edge of your seat episode, Mairead cleaning the kitchen counter and Doug putting batteries in a remote.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,901 ✭✭✭✭ fin12


    Brilliant choice of film from Erica, I absolutely love Titanic. I know all the lines in it I’ve watched it that much.

    My favoutite part of Fair city is when Paul starts ranting and raving around the place.

    I have to say, Brows looked amazing tonight.
    And Juliet finally seems to have gotten acting lessons.

    Was gonna go with both opinions myself; Juliet has certainly toned down the over-enunciating every word possible.

    Love the flat above the Pig; savage decor; what now for Petes Place? Can't imagine Sean moving back in; get the feeling that character is done with Fair City?

    Again the actress playing Ruth is shining apart from some of the others; t'was like during the Summer FC decided finally to give her some decent lines & scenes & she's flying.

    Juliets little dig @ Mondo after Paul confronted her (was gonna say them but Mondo just stood back & didn't intervene....) "I've always been this grown up; you just weren't paying attention" was well delivered; no reaction from Mondo; FC SWs could've done something with that; he also said something similar to her in the beer garden of Sundays episode.

    She seems to have a bit of an American accent I think?

    The scene with Paul was good mind; think if it was a match he might've just ewualised with the last goal of the game with his last line; she seemed crestfallen when he didn't apologise.

    The scene with her & Ruth at the laundrette was good too; maybe that's what it'll take to continue improving her as an actress; FC has started to pick up the pace a bit lately but some dull enough scenes at times with other characters.

    Dearbhla defo copped Mairead chucking the magazine was down to Mairead spraying it beforehand but not wanting her to notice right?

    Wonder will Dearbhla make a play for Damien before the Easter Nuptials; Cian was a bit too accepting when he came into the shop; I'd've dumped her to the kerb.

    Cian looks slick in the suit in fairness but his character isn't gonna last much longer; he's only barely in it as it is.

    The Pete-Doug-Erica thing; in fairness to them all they're playing the scenes very well.

    Til Thursday then......

    Where did Sean move to after Pete bought the house?

    Don’t know, haven’t seen him for a while now. He could have moved in with Orla, especially after she’d been burgled. He doesn’t seem to mix with his remaining family though at all.

    Yeah...its seems to be the voice a lot of kids are going for ....is she acting..?? who knows..
    She'll probably start saying "Mom" and "like" too much soon...i hope the writers will resist this awful trend...
    be proud of your Dublin accent....

    So Doug and Erica are back in the flat. Who paid for all the renovations that Doug did before Erica moved in ? I'm sure Pete didn't pay for all the furnishings

    I noticed Juliet said she has spent weeks with Ruth - they literally interacted for the first time this week.

    Don't worry, I've a feeling Damien and Darbhla are going to make up.
