I don't know what I am more enraged about tonight:

- Kevin and Molly, most unrealistic affair this decade
- Fiz and John, most repetitive drudge this decade
or
- Maria, the least realistic new mother this decade with her flat stomach, full make-up, ironed smart clothes, no bags under eyes, and how old is this baby again? Oh yes a WEEK.

Yep, it has all become very silly. Corrie always used to be brilliantly written, but dire at the mo. Oh please, the Maria/Tony story. Oh no, now Kevin snogging Molly - just popping out for another glass of wine.

I know

Kevin makes my skin crawl.
Fizz has just gone cerazzzy

Rosie and Sophie make me laugh though

I've just had to reassure DH that if I was going to commit adultery with one of his friends, it wouldn't be at the foot of the stairs less than a few inches from the front door.

And why did we have to have that gratuitous shot of Molly's cracked heels as her dress fell to the floor? Get a ped egg, woman!

Has the actress playing Maria's MIL changed???

BettyTurnip Fri 10-Jul-09 21:05:56

The Ped Egg is taking over Mumsnet!

Anyone remember Molly when she was Ollie in Emmerdale, a sly little cow with huge bazoomas?

Talking of which, I am agog at Rosie Webster's outfits - how she hasn't had a "wardrobe malfunction" yet, I do not know.

Maria's tummy is not flat if you look closely, she is pg in RL.

BettyTurnip Fri 10-Jul-09 21:08:30

Yes, MIL used to be Sorcha(sp) Cusack.
What strikes me as totally unrealistic is that Maria's parents are never mentioned. They are in Cyprus IIRC, not the moon, yet they have not flown over to see their new grandson and support their young widowed daughter? Bizarre.

dietstartstomorrow Fri 10-Jul-09 21:10:17

Oh thanks.

Yeah, and her parents missed her wedding, because they has booked a 'cruise' - as if - FFS!

BettyTurnip Fri 10-Jul-09 21:13:32

Exactly!

If they can change Liam's mother then they can find new people to play Maria's folks. I do love Corrie but it's sloppy plotting like this that frustrates me, as I spend half my time going "Well surely that wouldn't happen!" instead of actually watching it.

16 year old Ds was watching it ..becoz hes in lust love with rosie webster grin

BettyTurnip Fri 10-Jul-09 21:21:33

Well, I'm sure Rosie Webster and Her Incredible Bouncing Boobs will be figuring a lot in his, er, dreams tonight. That bustier was practically soft porn!

random Fri 10-Jul-09 21:30:23

OOOps Because not becoz text speak slip up grin

Dlamis Fri 10-Jul-09 21:50:25

So wtf is going on between maria and tony anyway. Last time i saw corrie she was screaming at him accusing him of murdering liam, next thing he's delivering her baby!

BettyTurnip Fri 10-Jul-09 21:56:25

He managed to convince her that she was completely wrong, now they're having a platonic love affair which will probably devlop into a full blown reationship. This is obviously leading up to her finding out he's responsible for Liam's death, resulting in yet more histrionics on Maria's part <weary sigh>.

I want Carla to come back. She was fab.

sazzlelou Fri 10-Jul-09 21:58:51

I cant believe Rosie Websters wet look leggings cost £90 shock

(i know, i know, its not real life grin)

BettyTurnip Fri 10-Jul-09 22:00:33

I saw a woman picking up her daughter from school in wet look leggings. Very odd.

Dlamis Fri 10-Jul-09 22:02:07

Ah thanks Betty. Apart from that bit it doesn't really seem like i've missed the last 7 months. Funny how easy it is to get back into it.

braveandcrazy Fri 10-Jul-09 22:05:27

I had my eyes firmly on MN during the snogging scenes eewwww. Spent most of the two episodes wondering why there was a random unknown couple at Sally's party then the penny dropped they were Ben's parents.

PrincessToadstool Sat 11-Jul-09 10:12:09

Ah they were Ben's parents! I didn't twig. I was just curious about who they were as they looked a damn sight more interesting than anyone else there.

I hope the Maria stuff doesn't go on for too long, I guess until the actress goes on maternity leave though so a while yet. I just think sometimes they are cruel to the characters, let her have a bit of happiness fgs.
