Eastenders = Triggering - October 8th 2009, 06:59 PM

Does anyone find the storyline with Stacey and her illness triggering?

Makes me want to section myself.

I mean, the pair of them (Stacey and Jean) could not be played by better people.....but its just so...triggering.

Yeah, I find the storyline quite triggering too and I can imagine tomorrows will be particularly triggering. I remember when Jean got sectioned it got pretty intense and that really affected me for a few days actually, which may sound strange. I can't help but watch it though, I think that it's great that such a popular programme is dealing with the issues of mental illness and I think that Lacey Turner (Stacey) and Gillian Wright (Jean) are doing an absolutely fantastic job with their acting roles.

It's definately triggering.
I was watching it and it made me think of my own experiences and almost being sectional and stuff. It's a great storyline though, they're definately getting it pretty realistic.

It doesn't trigger me but it makes me feel something. Lacey Turner's acting is brilliant as is the actress who plays Jean.

i think hollyoaks is more triggering personally.. but yeah, eastenders do like to go for the shock-factor with their story lines. i couldn't even watch the whitney story line.. :/

I didn't watch hollyoaks for the fact that I knew what was going to happen...
Don't know why I still decided to watch eastenders though.

I think it is triggering. But at the same time I think it's good to bring the issue into the public and actually in people's faces, rather than hidden away. It makes others aware that it can happen to anyone, so not to judge ... Or that's what I thought ...

Urgh and Hollyoaks!? The Ravi thing! And now Sarah! Horrid (but gripping) to watch

That Sarah thing on Hollyoaks later really freaked me out. The part where she hit the ground was stuck in my mind all night and a few days after and I can still see it now.

I've never really found TV shows/movies triggering. Then again I've never had bi-polar, so I can't really relate. I felt bad for Stacey last night at least Jean is doing the right thing. I know it sounds nasty (well, not really as it's fictional) but I prefer Stacey with bi-polar, she used to annoy me before. At least now I have sympathy for her.

I don't think that this episode was as 'bad' as when Jean got sectioned, but oh my gosh, it was very intense indeed. I feel so sorry for Jean, too.
In regards to Hollyoaks, I found tonights episode quite triggering with the whole suicide storyline, but not as intense as Eastenders.

Omg ._______. poor Stacey and Jean I haven't cried from watching Eastenders since nana Moon died Lacey Turner's acting is amazing for this storyline.

Kind of off topic: Can Danniella Westbrook (Sam) go away already? >____< She's annoying me so much. Her acting is laughable, she looks like she's laughing whenever she "cries" -______-

Oh my, i cried a lot. Lacey Turner is just fab! I think this storyline deserves an award or two! Very triggering to people with bi-polar or similar illnesses though, but well portrayed me thinks.

Tonight's episode.... Gah it was so triggering.
Really well thought-out and acted though, must have been to have had that big an effect on me.

And Hollyoaks too. I can't watch anything nowadays.

Triggering programmes. - October 10th 2009, 10:44 PM

I'm not sure if anyone saw hollyoaks later, or hollyoaks this week (with newt) or east enders last night. But personally i thought they were rather triggering. It triggered me, and i think they should have put some kind of warning before the programme started. How'ever, i think its good that people are becoming more aware about these kind off issues because they are being shown more on tv.
What do you guyyys think?

I've merged these two threads as I feel they're on a very similar subject (hollyoaks and eastenders and the triggering content of both) If any mods disagree please feel free to alter this.

I don't watch eastenders but I do watch Hollyoaks and I didn't watch the end as I found the content too sketchy.
My younger sister did watch it however and I know it really upset her, I think that they should have trigger warnings before these programmes (if they don't already)

I think in ways it's a good thing. It raises awareness for people with mental health problems I think it'll help open people's minds up a bit as well. Am I the only one who thinks Bradley will come back for her? I hope so they were cute together.

I havent seen eastenders in a couple of weeks, but Lacey Turner is such a good actress!
Don't watch hollyoaks. used to; but now i just find it too predictable (like most soaps i guess) i stopped watching after the whole Niall blowing up the church with the McQueens thing...
