Does anyone have any thoughts about Carla's return and the reveal about her condition?

my initial reaction is ugh...another illness plot.

I am not a huge Carla fan and this revelation about her health does not have me thinking, "oh this is going to be good".

I think we are going to get a transplant story ahead.

Thoughts?

blitzen Wednesday, 10 January 2018 16:17
Well...I'm glad it's not another pregnancy storyline, at least. (Although there is one on the near horizon. *sigh*)

I'm not looking forward to more hospital scenes, but I *am* looking forward to lots of Roy & Carla interactions like last night. The actors are both brilliant and have excellent chemistry (no, not in that way). I find their relationship very sweet and believable. Who would have picked these two out as friends a few years back?

Beachy Carol Wednesday, 10 January 2018 16:33
Not a fan of the Carla return. Seeing her little interactions with Tracy makes me think they will bond over the kidney/transplant thing and become friends. I am wondering, if there is to be a transplant, who the donor will be. My wild guess? Peter ! I’m thinking none of the family will be a match. It is not too far fetched; after all, Samir was not family and was a donor to Tracy.

Hey Jude Wednesday, 10 January 2018 16:42
Hi Lynn! I like Carla but God, I wish she'd do something with her hair, and the wearing of black all the time. She just ends up reminding me of Cruella Da Ville! I can also see a kidney transplant storyline coming up, but I can't even guess who the donor would be. Maybe it'll be Johnny?!LOL Am also glad she's not pregnant!LOL She was never Mother material!LOL lol

Lise Wednesday, 10 January 2018 17:07
I think the first one to offer Carla a kidney will be Roy.
After losing Haily he said he did not want to go through another death of someone he loves. (or words to that effect).
If it's a match it would be a moving story.

haili Wednesday, 10 January 2018 17:19
I'm tired of illness story lines and was never a big Carla fan. I thought she'd had her day and was hoping the new Connors would be more interesting but Johnny was the best of the bunch and is moving to Spain - unless he changes his mind so I suppose Carla will make a fast recovery and take over the factory again. Maybe the next accident victim will be the kidney donor.

Lynn Wednesday, 10 January 2018 19:29
Lise

I thought Roy could be the donor too, then I wondered if it would be Johnny. I suspect that Johnny would not be eligible due to his health issues, but in soap world these things are often overlooked.

Will Johnny sacrifice his future and life for Carla and ignore his doctors to be Carla's donor? cue family drama.

Pearl Wednesday, 10 January 2018 23:45
Having experienced a kidney transplant within the family a random person on the street is not likely to be a match but in the soap world anything is possible. Also transplanted kidney have a shelf life of around 15 years. Tracy has had hers (Samir's) since 1995 so well past due for replacement. Maybe she and Carla could be inline for the same kidney - that would be a twist not played before.

On the plus side:

I like the Adam story as it is unfolding lately. I like the actor, and I am liking him with Eva. The backstory of Billy being involved with his mother's death seemed a bit of a stretch, but it might work.

Every scene with Billy, I am wishing him dead and gone though.

I may be one of the few who does not find Daniel creepy. He is "deep and mysterious" smile...I think.

Nice to see little of Phelan and Anna. I am so tired of them both.

Beachy Carol Wednesday, 10 January 2018 13:36
I agree with you completely, Lynn. I fully enjoy both Adam and Daniel and I both actors are doing a really good job.
I was never big on Billy but just can’t stand seeing him on the screen now.

haili Wednesday, 10 January 2018 20:00
I really enjoy all the Barlows, Steve, Leanne, Toyah, Eva and used to enjoy Eileen. The break from Phelan has been great.

I can't wait until the factory is up and running again. I've missed the factory girls' banter so much. It's been a part of Corrie forever.

Why wasn't Maria Connor invited to sit at the Connor family celebration table? And, Aiden asked Audrey to dance, but not Maria. She looked like a barfly! Samia Longchambon was just a high-paid extra. roll eyes (sarcastic)

Why was Adam playing nice and bearing pressies on his hospital visit to Billy? Has the Godfather had a word with him? confused

Jennie Bradley is a two-fisted drinker. lol

I could have done with more Bistro scenes, more Roy/Carla scenes and fewer Brian/Cathy scenes tonight. Here is the link to Tuesday's missing scenes from Bradley's YouTube channel smile [youtu.be]

haili Wednesday, 10 January 2018 11:29
I wondered about Adam bringing a gift too; Billy should beware.

If I was Maria, I'd rather sit with Audrey than those Connors.

Yet another illness and Carla may be the next occupant of that hospital bed that never gets a chance to cool down. They sure get their money's worth out of that hospital set!

Thanks for the missing scenes.

Beachy Carol Wednesday, 10 January 2018 13:40
We are supposed to just accept whatever holes or unlikelihoods there are these days, so for me parachuting Maria into the Bistro and leaving her alone at the bar was worse than just leaving her out of the episode entirely. I agree it did not make sense she would not be at the dinner table, especially as we had seen her earlier, twice, sitting and catching up with Carla and Michelle. Or were we supposed to think she was at the bar in order to chat with Michelle who had to work?

Maggie Thursday, 11 January 2018 19:44
Given Maria's affair with Aidan, I think it would have been pretty awkward for her to be invited to join the family get together.

Nancy,I think the reason that Adam is more affected is that he was in the car with his mother when she died in the accident and almost died himself.
Along with survivor's guilt,it must have been a shock to Adam who got Billy of from the assault charge on Peter is partly responoble for his mother's death.

Hey Jude Tuesday, 9 January 2018 21:34
That's right Marie. I thought about that the other day as well. Adam was only 12 when he was with his Mother that day.

Tracy Tuesday, 9 January 2018 21:49
Peter has been a complete idiot (again) and now the rest of the family won't be able to seek any justice for Susan, because they have to protect Peter. It's not fair for Adam - I feel his life's path has been altered the most - he was robbed of a mother at age 12.

Although Billy wasn't driving the car, he would be able to lead the police to the actual person who truly is responsible for Susan's death.

Perhaps Billy will confess to the accident and leave Peters cliffside actions out of it. (We can never tell how a character will behave anymore, so my guess might not be that far fetched!)

Maggie Tuesday, 9 January 2018 21:49
Plus, Adam's life was really turned upside down by his mother's death. Not just the obvious grief that others also felt, but he had to deal with the fighting between Mike and Ken, then had to live with a father he didn't know, then was shipped off to boarding school, etc... I think he has a right to be more bitter than most.

T Tuesday, 9 January 2018 21:51
And then Billy can be convicted, sent to jail, and we will be relieved of him for some time to come, if not forever ;)

Nancy Wednesday, 10 January 2018 15:27
My point is that I find Adam's vocal insistence on his experience being worse than anyone else's (a highly subjective measurement that cannot possibly take all the factors into account) is really pretty crass and odd. It's something other people say )(viz. Adam had it worst) NOT something the person in question says.

I didn't watch Corrie last night, so I have watched the first episode this afternoon. Weirdly, the scenes with Michelle and Carla in the bistro reminded me so much of an American soap. I don't know if it's because I'm watching it in daylight/mid-day, or if it was the background noise in the bistro, but I really felt like Michelle would fit right into the likes of Young & Restless or Bold & Beautful. (I used to watch them in my teen years). Strange......

Someone mentioned Carla's hairstyle... I agree, it would be nice to see a bit of a change in her. Although, I'm one to talk, as I'm not too adventurous with my own hairstyle either! I always loved Carla's personal look, albeit a bit dark; they were dressing her in a bit more colour before she left, I hope they continue with it.

Lynn, I completely agree with your comments! I also find it harder and harder to find characters that I like. Take Billy for example, when he first arrived on the show I was quite fond of him, now I find him completely insufferable.
I will continue to watch the show as I have for a very long time, it still continues to entertain me and there are characters that I am rooting for.

Alice Tuesday, 9 January 2018 16:54
Gayle, true about Billy. I can't stand him any more. Brian and Cathy were fun at first but now razz (stick out tongue) . I have no idea why Kate is on the show. She's such a blah character. She and Rana are blah too.

Nancy Tuesday, 9 January 2018 17:06
I quite like Rana and Zeedan apart from all the bisexual longings. I wish we were watching a story about them setting up their food truck locally occasionally. Way more interesting than Kate and Rana. Man, do these people say "I love you" quickly.

Maggie Tuesday, 9 January 2018 21:44
I agree, Nancy. A focus on Rana and Zeedan's food truck business could have been a long-term plot that could have included some good 'ups and downs' for them personally and also involving others on the street. Another missed opportunity.

Pearl Tuesday, 9 January 2018 23:51
Agree that Billy started out as a character with great potential but the PTB didn't let him grow in a natural way. They piled crises after crises on him which destroyed any admiration for him.

If you watch game shows, you have seen a game called Plinko. In this game a ball is dropped down a vertical board studded with evenly spaced nails. At the Bottom of the board are slots for various amounts of money to win. The objective is to figure out where to start the ball to end up with the most money. The ball goes in the right direction and gets unexpectedly knocked off course by a nail then another sends it somewhere else.
The soaps are like that. A character starts off in what should be a straight line to the obvious end. But then an unexpected event or person sends them off like a plinko ball or pinball careening off course. That makes the story fun for us to watch.
Let's play a game...track Sinead's path to the alter. Go back and think about how Daniel hearing an argument and buying her a plant sent her in his direction, Ken interfering sent her another way. Katie dying and a brick in a ginnel.., watch the next few weeks and see where Sinead goes. Lol

T Tuesday, 9 January 2018 19:05
Plinko from Price is Right!? Best game show ever, back in the day. (That, and Family Feud). cool

Jackie Tuesday, 9 January 2018 20:56
I just see Sinead going this way and that as one guy does this, than the other guy does that, and someone else says something to someone and that pings her off in another direction.

The same is true of any of the characters. You can't predict what they are going to do, things change so quickly. A series of unfortunate events usually.

Corriewrinkle: Your comments regarding the Street now, compared to years ago, is “spot on!” I have stated that a number of times here. I’m sure if some of the newer viewers saw episodes of years gone by, they too would be very disappointed in what we have to put up with in storylines today. The writing/storylines/acting was excellent in years gone by. As if there isn’t enough doom and gloom in the world today, Corrie used to provide a good laugh, and we would be clamouring for more. I often click on you tube just to see some of those classic characters. Bob

Gail Tuesday, 9 January 2018 12:06
Great post Bob. Although I don't share the opinion that Corrie was better in the old days (and I did watch it then!) I enjoy the modern Corrie much better but that's just my opinion, and I know that there are probably more people, particularly those who watched back then, who don't agree with it. That's OK, we are all entitled to express our opinion here.

Lynn Tuesday, 9 January 2018 14:57
Corriewinkle

I agree with you too.

I have been having a hard time watching because I cannot find any characters that I like and that I am really rooting for. Most of the street's residents are so unlikable these days that I spend time wishing them dead or written out of the show.

Of course, there has to be bad guys and conflict and drama...that is the stuff of soaps, but what has happened to our street? Full of criminals and wanna be criminals.

I accept that time moves on, and people change, but goodness doesn't anyone become a better person or improve with a bit of age and wisdom? Where are the decent people we want to care about?


end rant

Jackie Tuesday, 9 January 2018 20:59
Agree with you Lynn, it is hard to be on anyone's side. No one to like anymore.

Gail Tuesday, 9 January 2018 22:49
I find a lot of characters to like for a variety of reasons and no trouble finding them. Of course, there are lots to dislike too.

Corriewinkle. I don't know if u lurk, but if you don't, please know that everyone has an opinion here and we all quite often have differences of opinions and disagree about the goings on, on Corrie. Even the ones who get fed up are allowed to express themselves and it can be a bit heated, but we all respect each other and it would be great if u joined in the conversation. Don't be mad because some of us are still avid fans!

Also, what is with this competition for who was more affected by Susan's death? Adam is just plain weird about the subject.

haili Tuesday, 9 January 2018 01:46
Maybe the Barlows are upset that Billy had the nerve to move to the Street where they live after being responsible for Susan's death. Finding out about Billy's part in it stirred up all the old feelings of grief and anger it seems.

Nancy Tuesday, 9 January 2018 01:51
Yes, but why is Adam constantly pointing out that he was more affected by Susan's death than Ken or for that matter Peter? All three have a case to be made that they were the most strongly affected, despite our societal inclination to expect the child to be most affected, but only Adam is stomping around having temper tantrums about it.

Lise Tuesday, 9 January 2018 13:00
Haili -Billy did not know it was Susan involved in the accident. He just found out who the woman was when Todd googled the accident. Had he known he probably wouldn't have moved on the street.

It looks pretty obvious to me that Billy will get addicted to drugs and probably turn to heroin but I hope I'm wrong. I don't want to see much more of his miserable face.

Where does Carla get all her money?

Dianne W. Tuesday, 9 January 2018 01:38
Thanks, Chris. Ken played the role well, straight-faced, deadly serious, even though it was a little comical when thinking about Vito C.

Beachy Carol Tuesday, 9 January 2018 01:46
You know, Chris, I said the same thing: where does Carla get all her money? She sold the factory but Johnny just sold it too for 80,000 pounds. A lot of money but enough to fund Carla’s lifestyle and her many generous offerings? I suspect, though, the idea at this point is that Carla is spending all of her money now to help her loved ones because she herself is not sure of her future.

Daniel still gives me the creeps. There's something eerie about him. Adam's strutting and swaggering is comical, and Brian is still an oaf.

I take it you do not fancy any of them?
Me neither.

Nancy Tuesday, 9 January 2018 01:20
I agree that there's something eerie about Daniel, but I expect lots of that lies in the perception that he's literate and erudite -- don't worry, it never did Ken any good. I think Daniel is intimidating but gorgeous and funny and interesting. As I've said before, I'd take him over nearly any other guy on the street, except Roy.

T Tuesday, 9 January 2018 02:31
I'm up and down with Daniel, but he has a eeriness about him for sure.

Oprah's speech:

In the New Yorker:

"It was a galvanizing and important speech, forward-looking and inclusive: the kind we used to hear from the person running the country. No wonder everyone on Twitter immediately posted “OPRAH 2020.”

Hey Jude Monday, 8 January 2018 19:36
Hi Pam, and CTV is okay today, so not sure what happened

Gail Monday, 8 January 2018 19:52
I just watched Oprah's speech on youtube because I forgot to watch last night. It was powerful, it brought me to tears. She's probably too smart to want to take on the POTUS job though!

Nancy Tuesday, 9 January 2018 01:18
Also, what does it say about democracy that super famous entertainers are the only people who can take out another super famous entertainer (no matter how completely un-entertaining I find him)? Seems pretty weak as an institution.

Tracy Tuesday, 9 January 2018 02:29
#metoo, should be more like #iknewtoo

I usually only watch the red carpet with my daughters to see all the dresses, but it was boring this year with all the black.

George Clooney prob isn't too pleased with all the encouragement Oprah is getting from Hollywood. I reckon POTUS is on his bucket list ;)

Wasn't James Franco involved in some scandal with an underage teen on the internet 'come to my hotel room'? I guess it was a misunderstanding...

I agree Gail, we can whine, complain, phone CBC all we want, it won't change anything. All this has been discussed many times over the last 20 years or so, so why would it change now? Thank God we have Chris and his buddy to post the deleted scenes for us!

We weren't able to see the awards show last night. Something went wrong. We had cable, but CTV was all messed up on Shaw Cable. We could get every other station but that one. The picture kept jumping and the sound was all off. Must have been something in the transmission, but I wasn't really too upset, as long as I get to see the Oscars, to me, that's the one I want to see!

Has the make-up dept given Steve's hair a dye-job? Or is this the natural way of being in his 40s? I thought he was a blondish/light brown in earlier days!

He is def going grey at the sides. At least that's how it looked on my TV. I thought he looks good that way! Grey hair suits him.

I forgot to add that I just cannot believe the lengthy scenes that have been cut over the past week! Vital scenes that contain important details without which there are so many questions. That letter that Todd wrote to Billy? I can't believe they cut that! The wonderful Christmas morning scene with the Barlows was completely cut and the Platts standing outside their house on Christmas morning, Craig and the lady cop stopping by! Some of the best scenes from that episode. SO frustrating because nothing we can say or do is going to stop CBC from editing so brutally!

I'm really enjoying having Carla back! It's so good to see her again. (I would like to see her do something different with her hair though LOL I think she should visit Audrey's and have those straggly ends cut nice and blunt into a nice bob around her chin and a little shorter at the back!) Forgive me if this has been discussed, I haven't been looking in on the GB all that much lately so may have missed the discussion. She must BE pregnant since she's not drinking wine or anything else alcoholic and she was wearing a very baggy sweater! Must be the child of a yet to be introduced character who will no doubt eventually follow her to Weatherfield. Unless she had a visit from Peter or someone else on the street that we don't yet know about!!

I agree, Gail. Always liked Carla, even when she was a nut! At least she's "alive" in her acting. Shall look forward to more revelations.

Gail Monday, 8 January 2018 19:33
Me too Joanne. I think Carla brings something good to Corrie. She's a very good actress and Carla is an interesting character although I know some would disagree, and it will be interesting to see how she and Roy will move forward with their friendship/relationship!

Lise Monday, 8 January 2018 21:38
I'm very happy to see Carla back on the cobbles. She's terrific. She may not be pregnant, she's not the mothering kind .
But she may have joined Alcoholics Anonymous or maybe she has some health problem?

Gail Tuesday, 9 January 2018 02:03
Haven't seen tonight's episodes yet but yes, it definitely is more likely a health problem. Maybe she has MS too. AFter all she could have inherited the gene from dad Johnny.

Lise Tuesday, 9 January 2018 13:03
Good thinking Gail. MS - I had not thought of that.

An extraordinary speech by Oprah Winfrey last night.

She moved me to tears.

I'm forgetting who Luke is now.

Hey Jude Monday, 8 January 2018 17:31
Really?? Surely you jest! I'm sorry! LMAO! lol

You've forgotten Luke, the guy Phelan kept in the basement of the empty house for months on end, then killed him??

Joanne Monday, 8 January 2018 18:44
Wasn't that Andy?

Hey Jude Monday, 8 January 2018 19:35
Joanne: OMG YES! It WAS Andy! How on earth did I get those 2 confused!?LOL I like/liked them both, even though we didn't see much of either of them.

Joanne Monday, 8 January 2018 19:50
Me, too, Hey Jude. Both rather dishy and "fancy-able". (I'm old, not dead). Oh, and Luke is a decent actor, too.

Hey Jude Monday, 8 January 2018 20:38
Joanne: Yes, they are both good looking young men. Poor Andy, it was really hard seeing his face in the dark basement. I wish they would give Luke a great storyline too - yes he is rather dishy!LOL They both are!LOL

Tracy Tuesday, 9 January 2018 02:35
Luke was so under-used, no much wonder he wanted to leave. He was so cute as Audrey's crush when he first came on the show. Then he went on to be the toy boy for Maria and Tracy, and then they stuck him with the boring Alya :(.
I will miss him. Another wasted character like Erica. I hope he does well in his future.

Hey Jude Tuesday, 9 January 2018 14:22
The guy who plays Luke is leaving too? I don't think I read that confused

Am going to have to read up on him

RIP Ray Thomas :( So sad to hear of his passing. Loved Nights in White Satin and Tuesday Afternoon. Another legend from the 60s gone

OFF TOPIC: So terribly sad to earn that Ray Thomas, a founding member of Moody Blues, has died at the age of 76. Who could ever forget the haunting flute solo in Nights in White Satin."

An astounding musician and gentleman...

Chris Monday, 8 January 2018 03:00
That's so sad. The Moody Blues are one of my favourite groups. I often listen to their music.

I remember in a Heartbeat episode, Night's in White Satin was the background music playing while a pyre of diseased cows was burnt and then the farmer committed suicide; such a powerful song.

Thank you, Chris. I posted a tribute on FB. I have been to several concerts in Toronto and Hamilton, and have SO many fond memories. My favourite band along with The Beatles.

Jim Monday, 8 January 2018 04:20

I have watched Corrie since 1985. I used to love it! Bet Lynch, Jack and Vera, Curly Watts, Hilda Ogden, and dear Phyllis chasing Percy. I used to laugh and laugh. Now I have to endure Pat Phelen killing off half of the street. Chesney is beyond crazy, really, a brick in his own face! The scenes with Rita and Norris are pure gold. Anna is off her trolley and these characters can't seem to find any one off street for their romantic liaisons. These one dimensional characters are driving me crazy. Thanks for listening 😁

Tracy Monday, 8 January 2018 02:20
I hear you!

Bonnie Monday, 8 January 2018 03:04
You're not alone!

Gail Monday, 8 January 2018 03:47
To each their own I guess. I have watched Corrie longer than that and I still LOVE it and always will!

Hey Jude Monday, 8 January 2018 06:22
Gail: Same here!

haili Monday, 8 January 2018 11:06
There are still strong characters left: Steve, Liz, Leanne, Peter, Ken, Adam, Daniel, Audrey, Gail, David, Roy, Tracy, Mary, Norris, Rita are all good actors and fun to watch.

Just checked on Corriepedia, Susan Barlow was played by 4 different actresses from birth in 1965 to death in 2001. Wendy Jane Walker (blond) was the second actress, she did two stints; 4 years in the 70's and 2 years from '85 to '87. Peter has out done her on the different head count as he has had 7 faces over the years.

Is this the case?

All the clipped scenes from individual episodes during the week ARE included in the Sunday omni on CBC, aren't they?
Once they take out the intro and outro, they have time for those scenes.

I don't often check the clipped scenes, but today as I am watching I have been checking the clipped scenes during commercials as the episodes play, and so far they are all there.
