The old thread is nearly full. Nice new shiny thread here.

Fantastic! Great title.

OK, not a big fan of TangoTina (as in the orange drink) but loved the way she put Gary in his place..."you're so not my type, too skinny with a scratty little beard"...or something like that (not to mention a vacant evil stare half the time luv).

Why does Gail take on a whole new annoying persona at times and a squeaky voice, talk about chalk down a blackboard. If I was Stella she would have got the mop somewhere where the sun don't shine (she put on a really horrible voice when she was getting gooey with Lewis Archer too) uggh!

Marking my place and hanging my head in shame after reading the spoilers on Digital Spy. Don't worry, I will keep it zipped grin

Marking place too, I missed it for a couple of weeks and have had a massive catch up over the last two nights. It's all going to implode any time now I feel.

I wonder how Tina will go? I hope it's not with Gary.

Marking place so I don't lose you all.

Ooh I hate the way Gary rolls his eyes at the ceiling. ( "I'm here, here . Not up there you plank" )

Almost as much as David Platts open mouthed gormless look or his Looking-Up-Through_His_Eyebrows trying to be menacing look.
Doesn't Work.

I'm joining this thread!

Kept meaning to join the other one and it got too big!

Gail drives me mad, I agree she puts on a silly childish voice grr.

I really wish Carl will be outed now, getting boring watching him squirm all the time.

Hate Nick and his stupid goofy faces he pulls.
It's obv going to be his baby, this will prob come out in about ooooh..5 years hmm

Arghhh at Izzys pronounciation. She needs elocution lessons - and it isnt even her accent.

ivykaty44 Tue 14-May-13 20:50:23

Nick and Gary should get together and run away - that would be good grin

Lovely shiny new thread!! Will be back when I've caught up as I'm struggling to watch these days. Instead I just read this thread to find out what's going on.

What is the point of Chesney?

MrsSalvoMontalbano Wed 15-May-13 08:48:43

fab title!

I'm joining this thread too!
Agree with DesperateHousewife about Karl, I cannot wait till he is found out..... I'm getting bored of the St Karl storyline now!

Please make Gary leave! It can't have been much of a stretch for Michelle what's her name, who plays Tina to say the "how could I fancy you?" line...
Not sure how the surrogacy story line will go, but hopefully it will mean Gary and the atrocious Izzie leaving.

Joining! Corrie is right getting on my nerves atm but I can't stop watching. All of the major storylines (Carl and Stella/the Surrogacy/the Nick/David/Kylie baby) are irritating me and I'm losing the will to live over the Faye/Anna/Fayes waster dad storyline and the Chesney/Thingy storyline.

It needs a shake up. And how many more excuses can they come up with for Kevin's absence? And will Ken be "going out to Germany" to join him?

BastardDog Wed 15-May-13 12:22:42

How many daft story lines can Corrie have running in one go? I still watch, I'll always watch because I've been doing so for 35 years, but please........

My 12yo is loving it, but I didn't really think she was supposed to be Corries target audience.

And now we've got Roy trying to trace his long lost father. How many long lost relative stories are we up to now?

Me and my DH are taking bets on what hilarious actor will appear playing Roys dad. Unless he's already dead which is the other obvious option.

LineRunner Wed 15-May-13 13:16:13

I think Charles Dance should have a go at Roy's dad.

SlatternismyMiddlename Wed 15-May-13 13:33:47

Ooh, Charles Dance as Roy's dad, that would be worth watching.

I too am struggling to watch as there are just too many dodgy store lines on the go - but let's face it, I will keep watching them on the sky plus. It's a habit smile

LineRunner Wed 15-May-13 13:59:24

I tend to 'batch watch' on ITV Player when I've had a few wine

sensesworkingovertime Wed 15-May-13 16:23:05

Isn't life great when you have a shiny new Corrie thread.

70 you are so right about THE STARE. Can you imagine Gary and David going in for an 'evil stare' contest? Plus, if David and Gary could do jiggy jigs and produce off-spring I should think the baby would look like the spawn of satan.

Linerunner that's hilarious, perhaps he is like wasps, apparently no point to them either.

ProfYaffle Wed 15-May-13 16:28:32

Bastarddog have it admit it's captivated my 9yo too. On the one hand I despair at the quality of the writing at the moment but on the other at least dd and I get to bond over it!

thenightsky Wed 15-May-13 17:50:09

It's on at 6.45pm tonight due to the football.

Clawdy Wed 15-May-13 17:52:15

Charles Dance is only three years older than Roy! grin
