I got into it last series --and am starting to get obsessed with crap soaps.

Anyone else in for a discussion thread?

My DD 15 said the same

It wasn't a great top. I'm certain she is pregnant. smile

marquesas Fri 12-Oct-12 14:31:46

ooh scrumptious - I thought exactly the same thing grin

If she's not the top she was wearing wasn't very flattering was it?

Could Jaye Jacobs, who plays Sian, be pregnant? I thought I spied a baby bump last night.

It's so awful grin The stupid unrealistic rivalry with the next school... and Sian needs to go on the mumsnet Relationship section grin If she manages to get the head's dad to make up with him I will throw something at the TV. What have they done with the half decent writers??

Why do all the characters have either totally insane parents, or really mega-supportive, amazing, perfect ones? Nobody has a mum who is loving but loses it and shouts sometimes, or a dad who does anything normal (by, you know, TV standards) like having a secret affair or getting made redundant. In fact, nobody apart from Josh appears to have a dad at all.

Grantly and his new wife seem totally useless as housemaster/mistress, they dish up food and do the occasional telling off, but Grantly is embarrassed to help Tariq with things like getting out of the bath and his wife witnessed a pupil's mother in a sexual situation with another pupil, and then her slapping her own daughter and just sat them down for a heart to heart with a smile! Surely she'd have to report it??

And then the bit at the end of this week made me shock - so the headteacher of the other school attacks a pupil and scares her half to death and they go in there all softly softly (In the old WR Michael or Tom would have run in and grabbed him off her!) and he breaks down in tears and apologises and everything is magically alright, she's not upset at all, just happy she has a place at the other school confused

I'm still watching but still haven't really got into it this year

I watched the first episode of this series thinking "oooh, Jane Beale isn't great at a Scottish accent." Only to hear her interviewed on the radio the next day to find out that's her real accent grin

Ooh I so want to slap DDA!

Can I join in even on WR chat (even though I live nowhere near Greenock!)?

I have to laugh at the massive amounts of ridiculousness in this show somewhere - my dds get cross when I keep saying 'like that would ever happen' all the time so I have to keep schtumm!

I do have to laugh at how Tariq can be paralysed and then as you say rehabilitated enough in the 6 weeks holiday to be back at school with just Grantley as his carer! I mean how is he getting dressed etc?! Hilarious........

And yes Daniella thingy from My Family is DIRE!

Glad Chalky survived though - love him! Any chance Janice will finally see the light and fall for him though...........no thought not!

Just spotted that this thread had spawned a Greenock quiche. Never lived there, but I'm from a Greenock family. Pretty sure every one of you will know of one of us. Been catching bits of WR to see familiar sights smile

Scrappy, I agree. It was a good episode tonight!

scrappydappydoo Thu 06-Sep-12 21:47:40

Great episode tonight! Waterloo Rd meets Baywatch!!

goshandspecs Thu 06-Sep-12 18:20:56

It's not as good as it used to be. Most of the decent characters have gone. They need to axe daniela denby-ashe, she is a crap actress.

I'm pretty sure it was - but I deleted the episode, so I can't get dh to watch the trailer and tell me how right I am!grin

They were filming a football match at the Battery Park in Greenock yesterday. They definitely were going to be filming a canoeing scene, could be Castle Semple!

It looks like part of next week's episode was filmed at Castle Semple, Lochwinnoch - we've walked our dogs there.

<< gets a little overexcited >>

DD just turned it off ....

LineRunner Thu 30-Aug-12 20:13:35

Yes!

HarrietJonesPrimeMinister Thu 30-Aug-12 20:05:48

Anyone watching tonight?

lauraloo09 Sat 25-Aug-12 16:27:17

Wouldn't be surprised if we know each other or have a connection as PTA says its Greenock after all lol x

PTA Sat 25-Aug-12 10:51:17

Probably, it is Greenock after all!

I would be very surprised if we didn't know one another or have some some sort of connection of children/friends/family.

meala Sat 25-Aug-12 10:39:31

smile Wonder if any of us know each other?

Maybe we should meet?

meala Fri 24-Aug-12 20:59:28

The Greenock "quiche" is growing grin.

realism was never the strong point of Waterloo Road anyway! I love it for the escapism and the opportunity for cathartic shouting at the screen! I enjoyed it.
