Have started a new thread as the old one won't accept my message. So I'll repost it here:

Fuzz has form for being beyond thick. Remember the whole stape thing? Her character is just incredibly stupid. You'd think she would learn her lesson. Running away 'on a fishing boat' with £200 is like a story from a 16th century novel.

Re the abduction I think they were wrong. Lots of mums keeps kids from fathers for all manner of selfish reasons and abduction is not the answer. However I do think ty was desperate. But why won't he just let the court decide ffs. He's got loads of evidence. I'm getting to the point in this story where I'm actually ready to punch him myself! In fact have felt a tiny bit sorry for k when they stole ruby. Surely the writers can't have intended for this to happen? God knows. Im away next week so hopefully I'll miss the stupid court stuff and be back for some proper corrie storylines.

Baking Novice I thought I was the only one who noticed that hideous Blouson style fashion crime of a jacket that Paul wears but even Steve Mc commented on it.

Bakingnovice Thu 09-May-13 22:09:47

Steves obviously a mumsnetter.

The whole fire story is stupid. Stupid that Karl gets away with it. Stupid that Owen starts work before insurance approve extent of work covered. Stupid that st Ella and glo are now better dressed than before and that st Ella is wearing the same shoes she always wore.

It's also odd that Gail has completely forgiven/forgotten that kylie slept with nick. She's acting way too excited about the baby.

WhatKungFu - lol at Glo and her copious supply of waterfall cardies!!

I have to stop myself screaming at the tv whenever Gary is being nicey nicey with Tina. He gives me the boak. Gary v Tommy.....no contest really. Tina's hormones must be all over the shop if she even remotely fancies Gary back, but she looks like she's wavering.....

Mind you, Izzy'd drive me a bit potty, so no wonder Gary is sniffing about Tina.

ClartyCarol Thu 09-May-13 23:33:54

Tommy is lovely, you're right, Tina is off her rocker if she passes him over for bloody Gary, Feel so sorry for Izzy though, she does a good line in looking wan well, as much as she can with a frozen forehead.

Very well spotted whatkungfuthat re the clothes - I definitely remember Gloria wearing her tunics layered with long sleeved tops combos, and that long necklace, and that brown zebra printed coat with no collar before the fire, but I hadn't even given a thought as to how they were miraculously protected from the flames. Makes you wonder how the scriptwriters would explain it if challenged.

Gary is creeping me out.

That Sally Webster is unbelievable. Nasty cow.

ajandjjmum Sat 11-May-13 08:51:01

Wasn't she just! Some friend.

thenightsky Sat 11-May-13 08:53:07

I missed the Sally Webster bit... what happened?

ajandjjmum Sat 11-May-13 09:20:53

Nick pulled her up because she was bitching that David should not be allowed to care for children, as he'd just had an epileptic fit. She really snidely said something along the lines of don't think you're perfect, I know all about you and Kylie - and then emphasised again exactly what she was referring to. Some friend to Gail!

alemci Sat 11-May-13 12:38:27

also was this the first time David had this issue or have i missed something. Has he always been epileptic?

Yes Sally is such a judgemental cow. Perhaps something should be written into the plot to see her get a taste of her own medicine.

thenightsky Sat 11-May-13 12:54:35

David was diagnosed with epilepsy a few years ago after a car accident. I think he'd been accused of reckless driving or something, but proved in court, with medical evidence, that he'd actually blacked out during a fit.

alemci Sat 11-May-13 17:31:18

yes, it has come back to me.

MurielTheActor Sun 12-May-13 17:58:03

alemci like when she fell for Frank the rapist...? hmm

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 12-May-13 19:08:09

Has anyone noticed that Izzy sounds like a sheep when she is upset ?

FannyMcNally Sun 12-May-13 19:25:04

The good thing about the pub burning down is that we don't have to suffer Lloyd's mother girlfriend at the moment. Although I expect her to turn up and get a job at the Bistro any time. Not much of Jenna either which is an added bonus.

We were discussing here (or on the other thread) about how Owen and Gary had changed from nasty to nice. Good to see that the scriptwriters had noted what we said grin and have them showing their true colours again.

Agree, more Steve. He's the only one worth watching.

alemci Sun 12-May-13 19:58:16

yes Ken but then why hasn't the character learn from that. she still is harsh on others. anyway it isn't real.

Sleepyfergus Sun 12-May-13 20:09:30

There's another Corrie thread? <narrows eyes>

Who knew???!

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 12-May-13 20:21:24

Another thread ? I can't multi task Corrie!

FannyMcNally Sun 12-May-13 20:27:16

Ha ha! Sorry I meant the old thread not theother thread!

Bakingnovice Sun 12-May-13 21:06:37

Isn't it ridic that Stella and glo look like they've bought a new wardrobe from selfridges? Tres expensive.

And it's silly silly silly that qualified physio Jenna works in the shop!! As if.

Ellenora5 Sun 12-May-13 21:15:32

Ah it's all getting a bit crap really, and it usually gets worse during the summer, I suppose Kylies baby will need some form of life saving treatment and that is how it will all come out about her and Nick....and leanne will leave again!!! and then come back again!!!

I reckon Karl will be found out soon enough and the insurance will pay out then and Owen will be back building the pub...they must be sick looking at the bistro....Id say it won't be too long before Faye is back with Anna

Sleepyfergus Sun 12-May-13 23:14:42

Phew Fanny, you had me worried. Well, soon this will the the 'old thread' as our Corrie musings near the 1000 post mark. Shines new thread very soon. A refurbished one a la Rovers Return perhaps? or not until Jarl confesses and the insurance pays up

Sleepyfergus Sun 12-May-13 23:15:21

Jarl???!! Oh FFS, I'm off to bed.

Monty27 Mon 13-May-13 00:19:27

There might be another train coming off the bridge soon if the producers/writers are reading this grin

Crapnation St

Do da da do do do etc

Best about Corrie right now is the Meerkats lol

Lighthousekeeping Mon 13-May-13 06:47:27
