Alan (Tyrone) got the hairplugs in 2016. He's like a lot of us hairy guys -- lots of body hair, but tend to balding. He's a cute-ish bear, but he now shaves his body. Shame!
|by Ena Sharples||reply 5||09/08/2018|
So Tyrone's dead mum wasn't really his mum, and Liz's dead daughter wasn't really her daughter? And they both discover this within the same week? It's almost as though the writers have run out of ideas...
I'm not keen on the direction the new producer's taking the show in. The Kate Oates storylines were dark, but some of them were very well-written.
|by Ena Sharples||reply 6||09/10/2018|
The Imran/Leanne/Toyah potential love triangle seems very predictable and kind of lazy storytelling.

WTF? I only started watching in the 2000s, but I don't remember Jim ever being pure evil. Why would he do that to Liz?
|by Ena Sharples||reply 13||09/12/2018|
He wants to 'get back' at Liz and Steve for not visiting him in prison or supporting him at all. He thought that Steve and Liz still owned the Rovers and he and Hannah-Katie were planning to have Steve and Liz sell and then Jim and Hannah-Katie would somehow steal the money and go off to America. I think it'll be our Tracy who digs and digs and finds out about the plan.
Not linking many of the storylines. The Tyrone and bitch nana, Jim and Hannah-Katie, Slut sisters (Toyah and Leanne) and Dudebros (Imran and Adam), are all frustrating and boring.
|by Ena Sharples||reply 14||09/15/2018|
The Tyrone nan thing is odd. Obviously she's supposed to be a funny character like the late, great Blanche but...she's just not funny. Ty looks great these days, so glamorous!

Hannah-Kate's rather plain, but it's pretty far-fetched that this young woman is hot for an old, fat, and sick ex-con.

You’re in the US, R20? Try streaming services Britbox (same day episodes of Coronation Street) and Hulu (Hollyoaks on a two week delay). Both are well worth the subscription.

BritBox is $6.99/mo. .. I'd go that (legal) route, but the service doesn't carry any of the shows I watch from Channel 4. .. Gotta have my Hollyoaks, Ackley Bridge, and Formula 1 race coverage. .. Plus, there's my two Welsh soaps and other BBC specials that don't make it to BritBox. (Things like 'A Very English Murder,' 'Man in An Orange Shirt,' McMafia, 'London Spy'.) .. (And my dedicated UK VPN is $3/mo cheaper.

R71 As an ending, it came off feeling more like a whimper than a bang.
I guess my main issue with being too critical about it, is that I don't really have an idea of how it should have ended (if indeed it is over for good). .. Haven't given it much thought. .. Do we think the new EP (MacLeod) is going to extend it at some point? .. Perhaps Billy could encounter Josh at the homeless camp in three or four months???

The Hannah storyline is probably the worst I've ever seen on Corrie. You get the impression that even the actors who play Liz and Jim are embarrassed by it.
Daniel doesn't seem like the type of bloke who'd want to be tied down with a wife and kid at such a young age. He and Sinead haven't even been together for that long. It's a shame, because he has the potential to be such an interesting character.
|by Ena Sharples||reply 76||10/05/2018|
R76 I doubt they will remain married for long, this time. To me they seem to be setting them up as the new Ken and Deidre. If so, they will get together and break up numerous times.

I hope Beverly Callard makes the most of her chances next week. She has been given the meatiest storyline that, shamefully, she has been given in years. She's very talented. So is the actor playing Jim. Both old-school professionals.

Ali does look good these days on the show. The actor who played Ryan last time was gorgeous though (pic below)
I thought Beverly Callard did really well with what she was given but let down by her conversation with Eileen (whom I wish would fall under a tram). Mooning over Johnny when she'd just "lost her daughter all over again". Come on!
Kym Marsh overacting again. The Robert character is beyond dull. As is Nick, why bring him back? Yawn.
Loved Kate Ford, she's very good at drama but deadly funny as well. That crack about her kidney being homesick for Morocco was delivered beautifully! Her friendship with Mary makes both characters more likable.
Agreed it was dumb to have your impromptu wedding in the same day as your sister. Some bad writing stopped this being a classic week but all in all it was pretty good.
Oh and speaking of dull, why couldn't it have been Toyah who got ran over? She adds nothing to any of her scenes and is as interesting as Ken Barlow's twitter feed.
Finally, so glad Hannah is gone, wish we'd got to see Liz slap her down though. Horrid person and actress. Bye!

Tracy goes on honeymoon as she feels she deserves a holiday and always wanted to visit Morocco. This sets up the funniest line of the week "it must be the kidney getting homesick!" lol. (Ask if you don't get it).

|by Ena Sharples||reply 110||10/14/2018|
R109 exactly. People loved Carla as the tragic heroine because she's much more compelling and a better actress plays her. Michelle is tolerable in her place but not as the centre of big storylines. The one exception to that was her baby dying in which Kym Marsh was superb.
Couldn't agree more about how entertaining Tracy has become, she's very watchable.

Yeah, the ending was a damp squib, R251. But for the most part the storyline was well done. It felt different from anything Corrie has done before. I liked the fact that they didn't shy away from showing David's discomfort around gay men after the rape - cringing when listening to Sean talking about a one-night stand, making homophobic comments to Billy during his community service. They also showed him telling Max off for wearing make-up because it made him look girly. It was uncomfortable to watch but felt realistic as well. I also liked the way David and Billy's friendship developed after he talked to him about what had happened.

I liked that, too, R249, but Josh was written off so badly. I don’t think he was totally blind. He probably will regain his eyesight and rape again. He never came close to admitting what he’d done. It really should have ended with him being tossed into jail at the mercy of thug cons and guards.

They already showed Nathan and his friends go down for abusing Bethany just last year. I don't think David would have much chance of a conviction, because by the time he told anyone there would be no trace of the drug left in his veins. Josh admitted they had sex but claimed it was consensual, and it would be his word against David's.

These comments from Iain MacLeod about Amy's underage pregnancy explains a lot about why the show has gone so far downhill in the last few months:
[quote] "It’s really good – it gives a leading role to Elle Mulvaney, who deserves the chance to step up and do something a bit more grown up. I’m very much looking forward to that.
[quote] "It’s also really funny. Steve and Tracy dealing with a teenage pregnancy is not like a normal couple dealing with a teen pregnancy! There are scenes reminiscent of Peter Griffin in Family Guy – Steve goes fully postal at certain times.
[quote] "It's very funny, classic Steve with that Corrie heart. It's heartbreaking but ridiculous at the same time."
MacLeod seems to think he's good at "heartbreaking but ridiculous" storylines, but from what I've seen so far he's only good at the "ridiculous" part. I'm guessing he thought Kate's baby-mania would be both funny and touching at the same time, but it just made her look insane and made me wonder why Rana was letting her walk all over her. And Brian's storyline was more panto than the school panto itself. Turning the characters into caricatures (Peter Griffin? FFS) isn't funny, it just makes it hard to take the show seriously.

Coronation Street is a tad boring. I watch both it and EE but skip Corrie episodes. The insane dysfunctions of the EE families probably reminds me of my own working class background ( writ large.) I love Mo Slater and the general skirting of the law by others on the show. I had relatives like that. Corrie doesn't feel so working class. I've watch the old black and white ones on Youtube, from the 60s, and that's a world I vaguely remember having been born in the 50s.

When David said to Shona, "I was inside with him when we were on remand," I did a double take. I honestly thought for a second that he'd said, "I was inside OF him when we were on remand."

The actor who plays David has always had a heavy regional accent which is quite jarring when compared with the relatively clear speaking voices of his "family". A bit like when they cast 2 totally different looking people as siblings.
Last night's episode was poorly written, really dumbing down Maria "I don't know what an extradition treaty is" and Emma "What's a play on words?".

Yea, Sean is worse than Billy. I just find Billy to be one of those people more in love with the idea of being a Vicar than actually doing any work. Hate when he talks about "my flock". You're one of the worst Vicars in the country!
I found it inconceivable that Audrey has no savings, she's owned her own business for 20 years, had Alf's life insurance and inheritance, Alma left her money too. Sloppy writing again just to make the situation more precarious. A 78 yo who needs to keep working?

The scene where Craig and Faye came over to talk to Amy was weird. I know that Craig was there when Faye went into labour, but he's what - twenty? It's a bit inappropriate for him to be talking to a fourteen-year-old about her pregnancy. It would have worked better if Faye had talked to her alone.

I've re-watched some clips from Sarah Lou's first pregnancy on YouTube and it's reminded me how much better Corrie was back then. I suspect it's partly because there were only four episodes a week back then, so the writers weren't so rushed. Tina O'Brien did a great job, especially considering how young she was. You could really feel the impact on the Platt family as a whole, and there were no stupid "comedy" scenes (like Steve marching round to Dev's with a shovel, or saying shit like "You can't have your cousin's baby, it'll have two heads!). It makes me feel really fucking old to think that Bethany is now an adult, though!
|by Ena Sharples||reply 404||02/05/2019|
I really think they’ve botched the reactions to Amy’s pregnancy. With Sarah-Lou’s pregnancy everyone was deep shocked about it. Amy is a CHILD. At least Rita should be shocked and instead they just have her go “tsk tsk.”
|by Ena Sharples||reply 405||02/05/2019|
You're both absolutely right. The writing back then could be brilliant. Now we only get great writing if it's one of their special episodes of the week they do each year that has heightened action.
And I remember myself when she got pregnant. I was on 14 and didn't think someone so young would have sex or get pregnant, so it was shocking. I remember Gail was going to pass the baby off as her own to spare Sarah the shame and ruined life. I guess in part we've moved on (become desensitised?) to these things, but it really is lacklustre writing as well.

The storyline is being written by the same person who did the episode in Emmerdale where we saw life through a person with dementia's eyes. This time it's through anxiety and paranoia.

Last week's horrible Gemma Comedy Hour was a great way to make Paul just as unlikable. While I'm keeping an open mind, so far I have to say, I'm not finding the Billy-Paul pairing all that appealing.

R422 The duo had scenes together this past week that go beyond that. Paul is seen helping Billy sort through a bunch of jumble for the vicar's "community market" project. Of course, Paul has an ulterior motive for doing this charity work - with the set-up very quickly descending into garbage material with Gemma, which doesn't involve Billy.

R428 The scene where Paul showed up at Billy's market, bringing him the stolen flowers and proceeding to steal the ring that belonged to Roy's mother, occurred during this last week (Monday February 4th).

|by Ena Sharples||reply 474||02/24/2019|
Sean's homeless story had a lot of interesting possibilities. None of which were explored. Why did a middle aged man like Sean become homeless, because he lost his job, he has no savings? Why not? He depended on a part time job in the pub for survival (the kind of job a student does for pocket money) How come he never bought his own place, or never went to college or trained to improve his employment opportunities? Was Sean just too interested in partying in Manchesters gay village to think beyond the moment? Fair enough but the story just didn't go there. Lots of ideas coud have been looked at. Not that I think that Antony Cotton's acting could have rose to the challenge.

No character growth came out of it as well, he went back to his normal, bitchy self. Just like Sally has gone back to being a gossipy cunt right after the trauma of prison. The writers miss so many good opportunities nowadays.
And on the topic of finance, it hasn't even shown him try to be more careful or even attempt to buy his own place, he's just dossing around again. And Sally's legal fees were meant to be o high they might have had to sell their house and last week she was offering Kevin money.

R525 I don't remember rumors a beloved character would die during the last factory fire - which was 2010 during the siege? Tony Gordon and his henchman did die then but I'd hardly think he was beloved after he killed cute Liam Connor! Are you sure you aren't confusing it with the fire at the pub, where Sunita died? You're right though, that place is a death-trap!
I liked Friday's episode - I think the writing has worked, building up to so many people having a grudge against Carla. That woman has been through so much (Husbands dying, love of her life murdered, held prisoner in the factory siege, raped, alcoholism, Peter's affair, accused of Tina's murder, losing her baby daughter, gambling addiction, kidney failure, brother's suicide, the list goes on...) It's a wonder she isn't either in intensive therapy or a psychiatric hospital!
That being said, I'm glad Alison King is getting such a strong mental health storyline, she really is the best actor on the show and will deliver.

Why R555? That factory is a health and safety nightmare! How does Izzy get up those front steps by the way?
|by Ena Sharples||reply 556||Last Tuesday at 3:29 PM|
That’s not my point, R556, although I get what you’re saying. They won’t kill her. I can’t stand her, either, but nope, they won’t do that.

Gary told Carla that Pat Phelan did a sub-par job fixing the roof. The roof cave-in was not sabotage by any of the current characters, as far as I can see. Ultimately, the fault lies with Carla for not heeding Gary’s warning that the roof needed to be replaced.
|by Ena Sharples||reply 558||Last Tuesday at 4:24 PM|
R558 get with the game. We learned in December that the roof would collapse due to deliberate sabotage by an unidentified NEW villain. Its part of a bigger storyline.
I was annoyed that a smart businesswoman like Carla wouldn't have got a second opinion on the roof instead of taking the opinion of ginger Gary as gospel. He has no formal training!
|by Ena Sharples||reply 559||Last Tuesday at 4:30 PM|
Well, R558, we saw the saboteur go up on the roof and to do something to it, thereby further compromising it and actually forcing it to fail.

I do think this storyline is also Pat wreaking havoc from beyond the grave. Maybe the Polish worker knew Pat and is actually teying to worm his way into Eileen’s life for some reason because of Pat? And he sabotaged the roof on behalf of Pat?

Sally and Gina survive. Hopefully it's Sean who dies.
|by Ena Sharples||reply 562||Last Tuesday at 4:56 PM|
Would've great for the show if they got rid of Sean. Horrid character very poorly acted.
I doubt it's anything to do with the Polish builder. Last December when the 2019 spoilers were released we were told we had already met the new villain, before this character was introduced..

R563 I was thinking maybe Gary is the villain, and he conspired with one of the foreign workers to do the actual dirty work, which of course, would lead to continued employment.
|by Ena Sharples||reply 564||Last Tuesday at 6:59 PM|
Was ginger paid by someone to do the deed? He was waving all that money around last week.
|by Ena Sharples||reply 565||Last Tuesday at 10:53 PM|
Remember Gary was a thug when he first appeared on the show. His parents Eddie and Anna were well know grifters and thugs who refused to pay Joe and David for the work done on their kitchen. David went back to remove the cabinets and later Graham warned him that Gary was dangerous. I guess he's gong back to his old ways.

Gary and his dad stole Gail's ugly white kitchen and Joe gave her the much nicer one she has today!
They must have recast the guy who plays Wayne, Roy's former foster son. I remember that kid was as ugly as sin..
|by Ena Sharples||reply 567||Yesterday at 10:45 AM|
As ugly as Shona’s kid?
|by Ena Sharples||reply 568||Yesterday at 12:11 PM|
Yes. I am glad they brought him back though to help Roy.
Incidentally, who else thinks Roy has been a real shit to Carla? Cutting her cold and asking her to move out for something she did to protect him and has apologised for.

Bye bye Rana. You were a pretty crier.
|by Ena Sharples||reply 570||Yesterday at 1:04 PM|
Poor Rana. I still can't understand why she didn't call 999 after her connection to Kate cut off. Prayer ain't gonna help you, love!
|by Ena Sharples||reply 571||a day ago|
How's Carla? Is there any hope of another collapse on top on Sean?
|by Ena Sharples||reply 572||a day ago|
R572 Carla's breakdown appears to have started. Peter found her sitting on the floor, alone, and crying - blaming herself for the roof collapse. Then he got the call that Rana had died, so that made it even worse.
As for Sean, can we hope that some of these other characters inhaled some asbestos or something?
|by Ena Sharples||reply 573||a day ago|
Nope, R573, nobody else will die. Sorry to gloat but no way was Izzy ever in danger of being killed. They would never have risked the brickbats among the public and in the press if they’d killed off a wheelchair-bound person that way.

No same-sex couple has ever married on Corrie. Sian jilted Sophie at the altar and now Rana has died on her wedding day. The first gay couple, Todd & Karl, got together in 2004. According to the Corrie Wiki, 31(!) straight couples have married on the show since then. You'd think they'd give the gays a break once in a while!

R574 Yeah, this isn't the 1950's , when on American tv the writer and creator of The Guiding Light killed off one of the show's most popular characters by having some kids accidentally push the woman's wheelchair into oncoming traffic.
