Sorry to that man, but this show has always excelled when the women are at the forefront. Sam's return, Sam, Kat and Sharon's scenes together, Sam vs Denise, Stacey and Jean, Dottie and Bernie's blossoming friendship, Rainie! There's just so much good stuff going on with them at the moment.
The Jean episode in South End was truly devastating! The scene when she was talking to herself in the mirror could easily have become unintentionally funny - but it was so well written, directed and acted. Every moment of that episode was just brilliant! And that howl at the end! Bravo to all involved.
I do need Janine away from Mick as soon as possible, because he is really dragging her down. It was exciting to have her back, but they need to be doing something else with her. I really hope things work out differently for Sam's return because it's already been so good.
