Corrie Thread - you know it is bad when the best storyline is about a dog

Time to start a new thread. Hopefully by the time this one has finished there will have been a terrible disaster and half the current cast will have disappeared.

At least Jazz-hands-Andrea is on her way out. I'd be grateful if she would take a coach-load with her.

Hello. Flaky Corrie follower checking in.

I have seen an alarming spoiler but I know it's bad form to post so take a squiz at the Daily Mail if you are interested.

Ah, a lovely shiny new thread.

I've seen that alarming spoiler too sparkling

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 16-Aug-15 19:03:53

Runs to the Daily Mail....

Sparklingbrook Sun 16-Aug-15 19:07:22

I think Corrie is the new Doctors Anne taking over as No.1 WTF soap. grin

I might tune into Doctors again, it might be ok again now.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 16-Aug-15 19:07:39

....comes back to the thread feeling a bit sick.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 16-Aug-15 19:09:15

Hmmm... I think Doctors is more realistic than Corrie now, Sparkling. Did you notice the nurse treating Evil Simon the other day was Michelle?

Doctors is coming up to a big anniversary, so may be worth tuning in.

Nice one Anne grin! Shiny new thread, very true about the dog. He also is more likeable and credible than most of the newer characters.

Dying to know what the spoiler is.

JiltedJohnsJulie Sun 16-Aug-15 19:09:49

Glad you haven't told us, I hate spoilers with a passion.

Does it look really pants though? hoping most of the new arrivals suddenly get jobs in London as florists just like Tracey did.

Sparklingbrook Sun 16-Aug-15 19:11:04

I thought she was familiar Anne. That's why then.

I might take a look. I stopped watching during the Gobbyplod memory loss debacle which went on way too long.

southeastdweller Sun 16-Aug-15 19:12:11

Thanks for the new thread.

I don't think the story that's in the DM is really that bad, personally...

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 16-Aug-15 19:17:11

Her memory still hasn't returned, Sparkling, but they don't mention it any more.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 16-Aug-15 19:17:46

I agree it could be wore, southeast.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 16-Aug-15 19:17:57

worse not wore

Reignbeau Sun 16-Aug-15 19:19:10

Is it just me dreading this camping storyline? It looks crap in the trailers I've seen and Paddy McGuiness can't act.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 16-Aug-15 19:20:48

I am too, Reign. I don't like Fizz or Chesney, so can't bear the thought of the forced "hilarity" they will no doubt try to squeeze into every toe-curling situation.

afreshstartplease Sun 16-Aug-15 19:48:00

The camping looks awful

Place marking!

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sun 16-Aug-15 19:50:33

When Schmicheal (Chesney's dog) died it was a huge storyline too .
Rover is gorgeous (and even better that she is his dog IRL, I love watching Steve and Rover grin )

Corrie does drag some stories out, there was one years ago about the traffic using the street as a cut through. Cue loads of cars and the residents going all shock "Oooh err" when a car drove past )at the time the only car in the street was Veras red Nova and Ken's VW)

And the Norris/delivery saga.

YY , another tragedy is in order.

<<Starts issuing the P45s>>

Thanks for the new thread! I'm looking forward to the camping - love Beth!

The spoiler, as always, is more exciting than the actual event which will just be a non-event in the end.

southeastdweller Sun 16-Aug-15 20:13:01

I also love Beth and like Tyrone and Craig so I think the camping story should be OK. I've also read about a story for Craig that happens on the holiday which should make nice viewing.

ThinkIveBeenHacked Sun 16-Aug-15 20:21:16

Checking In.

Ahhh I never knew Rover was Steves IRL. Glad Andrea is going, not fussed either way about Lloyd. Not happy about the spoiler story.

Marias bump is hilarious! No attempt at hiding it.

I am enjoying Amys lines at the moment - only thing Im chuckling at.

AgathaChristie01 Sun 16-Aug-15 20:40:25

I've now read two spoilers, courtesy of the DM. Not sure which one is being alluded to here. smile

Jo4040 Sun 16-Aug-15 20:54:07

When Steve was pretending to make noises when the dog was barking...I actually laughed out loud grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 16-Aug-15 20:55:30

Steve and the dog are the best in the show by a country mile.

MrsUltracrepidarian Sun 16-Aug-15 21:08:42

Checking in grin
Agree about Steve and the dog. Awwwww!
