Corrie doesn't seem to keep my attention like it used to. IMO there are too many mysteries going on at once: Phelan, Ken's pusher, Sally's stalker; Nathan and what he's up to with Bethany - and where is Norris while all this is going on?. He should be in his glory these days! I never miss the show if I can help it but rarely ever watch it twice as I did a few years ago. I just keep watching to see if they will finally solve some of these puzzles but really miss the comedy of Steve, Lloyd, Eileen, and Eileen's house when she had the boys there. The acting is good, especially Ken portraying a man feeling the after effects of a stroke and now the fall but something is missing and I think it's the laughs and people being kind to each other.

Haili, you expressed the exact way I am feeling about Corrie at the moment. I have watched for 40+ years but I don't enjoy it as much as I used to. I just wish the writers could let someone find some happiness. Everyone is so sad and miserable.

Jackie 27 minutes ago
I am worried that Kate O is changing it to a bad soap, and getting rid of our favorite characters. Rita, Norris, Sean, Audrey, Liz all seem in jeopardy.

OFF TOPIC: I am so overwhelmed by the incredible Season 3 of Broadchurch, and find myself near tears most of the time. Julie Hesmondhalgh and David Tennant are outstanding actors, and the supporting characters are absolutely brilliant in their roles for every episode, and to see 'Chef' in a serious role. The scenery is amazing. I will enjoy the final episode tonight.

I wonder if it would be worthwhile to start a petition for the show's producers to create (demand ??) a fourth season.

I would love to see a tender and romantic relationship develop between Ellie Miller and her boss Alex. smile

Cat Today at 01:31
Hi Dianne W,
I am all in for a fourth season as well . The dynamics between Alex and Ellie are rife with potential.I feel sad it is finished...complete,kaput!

I think most of us agree that Sally and Tim are a great couple and the actors are fantastic. I don't care that the plot had holes in it. It was good watching them alone or together.

CRIMEnation Street is the shows new title...for such a small place like Weatherfield there sure is a lot of crime...its not as bad as Chicago just yet but who in there right mind would want to go or live there...i would pack my bags and leave town asap!!!...maybe The Donald could help with the building of a wall around Weatherfield and keep all those baddies out??? wink

Lynn Yesterday at 19:11
I think the very same thing, Jim. That little area must have the highest crime rate in the world...and not just petty stuff like shoplifting or parking tickets!

These people are killers, arsonists, stalkers. They are not bumbling criminals trying to get by in a nasty, life is against them kind of way, like many small time crooks.

Sure affairs get tiresome too, but this crime spree is just a bit much for me.

Jim Yesterday at 19:39
Lynn...i don't mind a little bit of crime...it happened on the show in the past but it is currently overloaded with too much crime and darkness...i don't believe this is what Tony Warren had in mind when he created this iconic show...it was suppose to be simple stories about the working middle class families and their ever day problems...now its CSI: Weatherfield!

Lise Yesterday at 19:44
Almost as bad a place to live as Midsomer Murders.

But the difference is that MS is about murders.

I'd rather have some gentle humour.

Jim Yesterday at 22:13
Lise...me too...i am enjoying early Corrie from the 60s to early 80s...The Ogdens, Eddie Yeats, Elsie Tanner, Ena Sharples,Annie Walker and so many others are so much fun to watch...Old Corrie is like an entirely different show compared to current Corrie!!1

Agree with all the posters re: Sally's stalker. I think it's too bad that the story has gone the way it has. Bullying and threats on social media are a real concern and I think the writers have done well portraying how frightening it can be. But as everyone has mentioned, why on earth wouldn't Sally go to the police?! And after that stupid megaphone story, I can't believe she wouldn't have gone to the papers or tv with her experience, vowing to carry on in spite of everything. I thought the cowering in the factory was just dumb; all she had to do was open the front door and almost every person she knows would be a few steps away!!

And speaking of dumb writing, what is it with DI McKinnon and her sidekick? When Peter said Chloe was lying about the date he went to her house, McKinnon told him Chloe had "checked and double checked the date and she's quite sure." There's no evidence!!! Of course Peter's phone message to Simon is incriminating and it's very convenient that he has an alibi for the night Ken was attacked, but it's all circumstantial. He has admitted that he went to her house, and even though he says it was self defense he admits there was a physical altercation. Unless Chloe can come up with solid proof that he was there the night before Ken's attack, it's her word against his. (By the way, where was Peter the night before??) When this finally wraps up I hope they send a different cop for the next Corrie crime, lol!

Dianne W. Yesterday at 23:28
My thoughts exactly Bonnie. I also found the heavy breathing/gasping by Sally a little tiresome and overacted after the first 30 seconds. roll eyes (sarcastic)

Tracy and Lynn: I hate the storylines, but the acting is absolutely superb! I love to hate Brian! He's so funny even though he's irritatingly annoying! He plays the buffoon to perfection! I wonder when Roy will come to the end of his rope and bop Brian over the head with his frying pan!LOL And Sally!: I just cringed as she sunk to the floor being so terrified, good God! Get a backbone Sally, but again, the acting was superb. smile

The two positives on the 'who-pushed-Ken' storyline: 1) increased Barlow interactions. I could watch that family squabble for the full 30 minute episode. They are all playing their parts to perfection. 2) Ken moving in with Roy (and Brian). I love Brian - he is meant to be annoying, and the actor is fantastic at it - it's his whole point of existence! There were some cut scenes the other night (when Ken first arrived to the flat), which I thought were brilliant, and it's a shame they were cut. It was great to see Brian kind of backtrack himself out of his rude comments to Ken, but only making a mess of it of course. * Now if only Norris could manage to invite himself into the flat, we would have an excellent quartet!

Sally's storyline is a writers fail, imo too. They should have had a bigger gap between Megaphone shouting and hugging into Tims arms for protection. She should have listened to Tim and shut down the social media accounts. Nice to see Tim admit he is scared. Maybe Sally should take notice of her husband. What's the point in being married if she makes all the decisions on her own? She always knows best, of course.
The positive on this story: more scenes with Tim. With Tim AND Sally. Even though she is annoying, they are great together, fun to watch.

I've been reading all the spoilers, so it's cheating to make guesses or comments on where storylines are headed, imo.

Lynn Yesterday at 13:53
I agree with your comments completely.

Yes, Bryan is a pain in the butt for the ages and it is hard not to get mad or disgusted with him. That is his "charm".

How about a weekly card or board game with the men; Norris completing the foursome.

Single women everywhere will be thinking "I made the absolute right choice" when looking at this bunch big grin

And I thought it was just me hating this Sally story line. Another helpless, brain dead women.

Wouldn't most people leave the place that is the problem if they are being watched? (I would get rid of the phone too).

Wouldn't most people go to where there are others and not sit alone weeping and waiting for the worst?

Why wouldn't a public person like a councilor call the police and get them involved.

Tim can sleep on a loveseat?! Good luck with that! I hope Sally and Tim decide to go to the police tomorrow. It's ridiculous that Sally is running around like a scared rabbit when only weeks ago she was yelling into a megaphone about women's rights. Just ridiculous

Gayle Yesterday at 13:54
Hey Jude - well said. Why on earth would she not go to the police! Ridiculous.

Why are the couches so small? Tim said he's sleeping downstairs. Where's he going to sleep on the loveseat or floor?

Alice Yesterday at 03:49
Lilypad, I've been thinking the same thing for awhile. Loveseats aren't great for sleeping. Leg cramps for sure.

Chris Yesterday at 04:28
I've read that the sets are very small, so I think it's so that they can fit them in shot.

Alice Yesterday at 11:58
Chris, that would also explain why their dining tables aren't big enough for the number of people in the house. I noticed that especially when Eileen had half the street living in her house and a dining table that would comfortably seat two, four at a pinch.

Tracy Yesterday at 12:53
To be fair, most average pre 80's homes in the UK have small rooms, and therefore larger pieces of furniture can make it feel even smaller. I remember my family using the inserts to make dining tables larger and my grandparents had a half-fold in the table to save on space when it was just the two of them.
Also, filming purposes would definitely warrant smaller pieces.

I don't understand why Sally and Tim aren't going to the police.Bethany has way too much freedom. I rather like David and Maria together even if it is a joke.I feel some sympathy for Peter, I spent some time with my families former neighbour from Edinborough .She watched Corrie religiously until a few years but found it was getting too modern for her.She was very surprised that Ken and Audry and Rita and Norris were still on the street.She wondered if Emily was too. She is in her 90's.

I think the reason tPTB had Brian and now Ken move in with Roy was to give him a storyline outside the cafe. Once Cathy & Alex moved out Roy was living along again. Characters who live alone eg Betty for years & years, also Audrey get fewer s/l about their personal lives than their working lives. In Betty's case and maybe now with Audrey a lighter work load is what they want. Personally Roy's interaction with the public in the cafe is enough of him for my tastes but must admit David Nelson is an excellent actor who's talent the bosses don't want to waste. Too bad the same can't be said about Erica, living with Dev is a character killer imo. I do like Anna & Kevin together and hope they remain that way for a good while yet.

I forgot to mention Sally's stalker when referring to the bad characters and this new baddy is just too much. They are spreading the drama too thick these days IMO to the point where people lose interest or just give up on some story lines. Normally a story involving Sally would keep me interested but it's hard to care much when there are so many other unfinished story lines.

I suppose some day the Phelan stuff will eventually conclude and I'm guessing the actor had a contract and they're trying to make it last until it runs out.

As for the bad hair dos, I like it that they try to make the characters look like ordinary people we see in out neighbourhoods, who don't go to hair stylists, but the local hairdresser or to the cheapest one in town.

Jackie Yesterday at 15:53
Good points. I was complaining, but I was also trying to recall the old soaps.

I do have brain fog when I try to remember things sometimes. Jim is such a good reference for all things soaps.

I do think that the hairstyles reflect the regular people and now I have the reason Audrey isn't on the high fashion trends. She is the low cost salon that the people on the Street can afford. Makes sense. Thanks

Lynn,******SPOILER NON UK I really hope David and Shona don't get paired up.
I also know Shona's secret and I could imagine how the children would feel especially Max [as Lily may be too young to understand ]finding out that David is dating the mother of their mother's murderer?!*****end spoiler

Jim,I love the idea of Liz and Erica being partners in the Rovers.
The few times Erica has worked there she was a natural behind the bar.

I really hope the writers do not go the affair route with Erica and Kevin it would ruin Erica as a character and as for Kevin it would be the second time[third if you count Sally kissing him] he would betray a friend,Dev by having an affair with his missus.

Bonnie Wednesday 22:21
Marie, SPOILER NON UK I know Shona's secret as well, and I can't possible see how she and David could be together. I'm hoping she will end up saving Bethany from Nathan and then feel as though she has tried to make up for her son's actions (which aren't her fault) and then with any luck she'll go away. END SPOILER

Jim Wednesday 22:22
I said that in previous post...Erica would be perfect behind the bar with her best friend Liz...i could also see her as a hostess/greeter at the bistro too...

Alice Wednesday 23:28
SPOILER It would be just plain sick if David hooked up with Shona.

Jim, do you find it is true that most other soaps have the cast in the most attractive and latest hair cuts, while Corrie has bad hair days for everyone?

We are usually speaking about Gail, Audrey and now Toyah. The first two because of Audrey's occupation as a hairstylist. But there are more. Remembering the other soaps I used to watch, they were always so well dressed and beautiful. Hair was often the latest style.

I do think that Sally is beautiful with her signature style, and Rita should keep her red wig hat hair. I love Rita and her style.

Jim Wednesday 22:18
Yes, most soaps do have their cast in attractive, modern hairstyles but it makes these soaps too perfect...some Corrie characters could go for a new look especially Gail who hasnt changed much but i dont think the entire cast need do overs-maybe just a few...i find many of there appearances more realistic...Y&R had a cast that looks too modelish and too perfect...i like that Corrie characters look more like everyday people i see all the time...but i still wouldnt mind some of the cast getting make overs especially Toyah-i liked her better with her shorter blondish hair!!!

Jackie Yesterday at 02:40
I agree the way Corrie does it is better. I have to say, i love Liz^s hair and Bethany.

I used to watch Y&R and couldn't relate. You are right, too fancy.

Pat Yesterday at 13:41
Haven't watched "the soaps" since my girls were babys and I was a stay at home mom but even then they always had beautiful hair and the nicest clothes. What I like about Corrie is they look like people you would see in your neighborhood. Except the people hopefully aren't like our neighbors. My neighborhood doesn't have enough space to fit all those people

Sorry, don't mean to sound like a know-it-all on this romance addiction stuff - to be honest, it's been a decade or more since I studied it, but I pegged Peter and Carla as romance addicts immediately because I had done quite a bit of studying of primary and secondary addictions and the writers were getting textbook right at the time. No doubt there have been developments in the field that I am not aware of.

If Peter is a romance addict, then it follows that his girlfriends are likely either to be romance addicts or co-dependents. One of the very common features of romance addiction is the conviction that you are a saviour and the compulsion to save people.

Lisa: Too right about Toyahs comment and her being the only one that can help Peter. roll eyes (sarcastic) Give me a break! I just about gagged when I heard that. Now I am beginning to wonder why they brought her back. Well, I do know, but she is not the same Toyah I remember, and makes me feel like I need to shower everytime she is on the screen! She is just grubby, as Jim has rightly said!

Toyah and Kevin would make the perfect grubby couple...Peter is no catch but he and Erica would look good together...Erica needs to buy Steve's share of the Rovers and her and Liz become business partners.....Peter doesn't seem like the fatherly type could be because of his upbringing...Ken wasn't a great father figure to him and Susan...sending them off...rarely being there for them...would like to see Peter becoming more fatherly with Simon...take him out to some game or something...Liz and Erica need a girls night out...

Bonnie Wednesday 22:18
I agree Jim, I think Erica and Peter would be a better match than the people they are with now. And I keep hoping Erica will buy Steve's share, she and Liz would be brilliant behind the bar together!

I think the producer brought Erica in and now they don't know what to do with her. She Liz's friend but we never see them together and now she's supposed to be with Dev so why would she be interested in Kevin? I know these characters have a short attention span when it comes to partners but this is getting silly.

There are also too many bad characters: Phelan, Jenny, Nathan and the bunny boiler and I think it's about time they cleared out at least a couple of them.

Gayle Wednesday 17:54

I was thinking that if Erica must be paired off, who would I choose?
There is no one. There a scarcity of interesting, successful men on the Street.
It's high time they introduce someone that would fit the bill.

Lynn Wednesday 19:07
So true, there is no one suitable at this point.

With all the crime on the street, I think a nice police officer (that is not a keystone cop) taking an interest in Erica could be really good.

A nice plain clothes detective who is sniffing around because of all the mayhem on that street! Murders, stalking, fires, explosions...those people need a full time, resident cop in the area. Keep his identity secret to everyone but her.

Seriously, a nice looking, age appropriate successful policeman and Erica. I would like that for her...no kids and baggage either. She has done her time with Dev's kids, and for what...gee, when is the last time he even took her out for dinner?

What really made me cringe about the awful pairing of Peter and Toyah was when Toyah said, "Peter needs help and I am the only one who can help him." Now, SHE needs help.

Lynn Wednesday 19:16
oh, yeah...that was cringe worthy. Toyah is nuts if she thinks she can "fix" Peter.

Like an old car; at a certain point you stop putting the money into it and look for a newer more reliable model. Toyah needs to look at this wreck she has and think twice about investing more into it.

Erica is too smart and urbane for any of the men on that street -- the only person I can think of who might have been fun enough for her to bother with is Lloyd (we know he likes older women). I really wish they'd stop wasting her on useless men. I think Johnny wouldn't be a good choice because he needs to think he's superior to his woman, and as Erica's clearly smarter and more widely experienced than him... Dev is a very poor match.

So far as I'm concerned, Peter's going along with Toyah's plans because he's a romance addict. His romance addiction is at least as damaging as his alcholism and I think it's his primary addiction. A romance addict would find the gesture of giving Toyah what she wants is ultimately romantic. Toyah, otoh, is pathological. The IVF process generally feeds into this desperation because the stakes are so high. Having only rarely experienced any desire for a child, I find this very difficult to sympathize with.

What I don't understand is why Sally was doing overtime at the factory when she knew the people from the magazine with the silly name would be waiting for her at the house? Surely she could make up her time some other day. And calling for Tim to come and get her? Why didn't she just leave? Call the police to report a possible intruder ("I can see you")?

I know Shona's secret, and it doesn't mesh well with what else we know about her. Why was she homeless? How was she involved with Nathan? Is she the reason Nathan picked Bethany to groom, or was that just random?

I also cringed when Erica was talking to Kevin. Please let them not be paired up! It would be an awful match--he would bore her to tears. Erica is a smart, independent woman. She needs someone who can hold up their end of a conversation and take her out for a fun night on the town now and then. I could see her and Peter being good together, although she maybe likes a drink too much for his comfort. I liked her with Nick, but we know he's leaving. Failing that, just let her be happily single, or show her going out on dates and regaling Liz with her adventures. And give her something to do besides waste her life slaving for Dev in the shop. What a waste of a potentially great character.

I totally agree with your comments.

If I tweeted I would start a #SaveErica thing. Kevin...what a nightmare...whiny, helpless, feckless, cheater, liar...yeah a real catch for an independent, bright woman. roll eyes (sarcastic)

Shona..I have no interest in her, her past, present or future...another girl with a bad past who has with a heart of gold and is a good soul. I am so sick of this tired plot device...Becky, Kiley, Gemma..come on writers ...we have seen too much of this, IMHO. I cannot warm up to the character or have any interest in what she is hiding..not an iota. This has been done to death and I just wish it would end.

My guess...she will save Bethany from Nathan and the Platts will embrace her...meet David's next wife everyone!

I think we are building to Roy blowing up at Bryan...rightly so. Bryan dealing with the fall out could be fun. Oh, yeah he is annoying and I get why so many people cannot stand him.

Lynn Wednesday 15:54
I forgot
and yes, yes re: Sally...very odd to sit there and cry...go home, get help.

Alice: Yes I believe Sally did call Tim, and then he left the house. Remember Rosie questioned why he was leaving? He didn't go to the factory that we know of, so he likely went to the pub. I think he's pretty sick of Sally and *her career as a councillor* now. What was with Rosie's ridiculous pink hoodie with the animal face as part of the hood?! She's pretty old to be wearing stuff like that IMHO!LOL

Am not liking this Sally stalking storyline either. Go to the Police Sally and show them the evidence! roll eyes (sarcastic)

Gail: Did I miss something? I haven't seen Shona in days. What is her big secret?

Gail Wednesday 14:48
Hey Jude, you're right, we haven't seen Shona lately. Alice posted in post 35386 that she had looked ahead and knew Shona's secret. I have also read about it in a google alert. We know that Shona is hiding something but it hasn't been revealed yet. So you didn't miss anything.

Rosie's silly pink thingy reminded me of Ralphie's silly pink bunny outfit in 'A Christmas Story'- lol

Hey Jude Wednesday 17:29
Jim: Exactly! I knew it reminded me of something! Good call Jim!

I hate to complain but I have not enjoyed the last two eppies. I find Brian completely insufferable and do not understand why the character was brought back. Surely the man can afford to rent his own apartment and I don't understand why Roy puts up with his nonsense.
Sorry, but I find Sally's stalking storyline far fetched why would she be all alone in the factory? When she received the package why didn't she go home and call the police. If something like that happened to me, I certainly would be afraid to be alone.
I am enjoyed Maria and David winding Gail up.
Is anyone else getting tired of Toyah and her IVF obsession, perhaps now isn't the best time considering her boyfriend is being charged with assault.
My apologies for being so negative, I'm sure things will improve soon.

Alice Wednesday 13:15
I agree with your comments. Brian has no more right to stay at Roy's than Ken does so he should shut up. There might have been a missing scene between Sally calling Tim for help and Tim going to the pub instead. Considering what Tim knows about the situation that didn't make sense, unless he just didn't get the message. I also am tired of the IVF story and wonder when 50-year-old Peter is going to tell Toyah he doesn't want a baby anyway.

Gayle Wednesday 13:50
Cheers Alice! I agree with you regarding Peter. It's obvious to everyone that Peter is only going along to shut Toyah up. The last thing he needs is another child at his age.

Gail Wednesday 14:52
I agree, why would two people who are on such shaky ground in life be so selfish as to bring a child into the world and be going to so much effort to do it? I could see if it happened by accident but this is a bit ridiculous. Peter is just humouring Toyah along. It's as if they're getting a pet or something, not another human being that they will have to be responsible for!

I saw the episode of Sally hiding alone in the factory when I was still able to watch on Fulltv. Why would she hide in a corner when if she walked out the front door the street would be full of people.
