Back when Billy Meehan was in it, Terence killing Lana, Barry killing Sarah and more recently the Paddy Bishop storyline.

For the past few years its been in decline even though the viewing numbers have remained high.

But unless they start to improve things a bit even the most loyal followers will switch over.

I just caught up with Eastenders for the week (OMG!), and then straight afterwards watch the two midweek episodes of Fair City... well going from one to the other was like watching Gladiator followed by Showgirls.

The two main themes in Fair City was marmalade and Hawaiian shirts. What even is that all about anyway?! The fact that it’s so bad is nearly what keeps me watching it - and this thread of course! If it nearly wasn’t so bad, I probably wouldn’t watch it. I feel the writers misjudged the mood of the nation when writing it. They thought we could all look back fondly at lockdown and think of it as a time when we all came together. But it’s just too soon for that - we just want to forget about it now and move on. Also, I know they’re mandatory in shops, but will we really be looking at them all in the Spar for the next 6 months? (or however long until a vaccine). Surely they can use a bit of artistic license so that not everyone is wearing them? I would be nice to sit down and watch something current made by RTE that’s not ramming Covid down our throats!

I caught this Gift Grub on the Today FM podcasts. “Daniel O’Donnell” dissing Fair City. It’s over a week old now , but his criticism of the programme is still relevant and it’s not moved on since the first episode back. It’s a good laugh!

They should recast him.
He should return as Davina for Bella's and Cass's wedding.

I wondered the same Liz. Probably someone we never knew, the way a family will sponsor a bench for a loved one?

Spoiler: I just read an article about that and was very confused because I thought Louis Gleeson was in it more recently than that. Jack's dad. Turns out that's Louie Gleeson. Two different people. My mind is blown hahaha
