A Mesmerizing Update


Look into my eyes, look into my eyes, don't look at the wall, look into my eyes. You will not be watching Corrie, you will be watching Little Britain.

Charlie and Crazy, Crazy, Crazy Shel

This was one of those good Charlie/bad Charlie episodes.

We find him at Roys Rolls eating by himself and complaining to Ciaren that he misses having breakfast there with Shel. (This after he assures Ciaren that he's taken the hand cuffs off Shel so that she can actually leave the bedroom.) He complains that she won't leave the room and that all she does now is talk about what she watches on telly.

At that point, Glacia puts down the note pad and pen she was using to make Coronation Street notes and looks around the room with embarrassment.

Charlie goes back to the bedroom and tells Shel that she needs to go downstairs for herself and to save his reputation. Good Charlie makes an appearance and tries to boost her confidence by telling her that he misses his strong sexy girlfriend. Then he does this cute 'Little Britain' routine where he hypnotizes her into going downstairs.

Meanwhile, back at the Rovers, Liz and Bev decide to go in to show Charlie that Bev's not afraid of him. When Charlie sees them there, Bad Charlie comes back to make menacing comments and evil looks. The situation explodes to the point where Charlie tells them that they're barred from the Rovers.

Rightfully so, Liz reminds him that he is not the manager and has no right to bar them. Furious, he goes upstairs to get Shel to come downstairs and bar them. She won't of course...she won't go downstairs. She tries to call her mom on the mobile to bar her, but Charlie takes the phone and insists she go downstairs.

This was an unbelievably frustrating scene. Charlie is in Bad Charlie mode as he screams at Shel, but she's being such a dip that I want to scream at her.

In fact I was screaming at the telly. Downstairs Shel, go the hell downstairs and let us get on to another story line.

Look into my eyes, look into my eyes, don't look at the wall, look into my eyes. You will not be watching Little Britain you will be watching Red Dwarf.



Did Someone Call for a Cab

Dev and Sunita walk into the Rovers where we find a new character (Hey! Wait! Isn't that Lister from Red Dwarf?) enjoying a pint and a smoke at the end of the bar.

Dev snarkily demands that he put out the cigarette because of Preggo Sunita. Sunita apologizes for Dev's behaviour and Lister puts out the cigarette for Sunita's benefit, not for the rude way Dev asked.

Unfortunately, he's on the street to apply for the new taxi position (along with Claire). When he sees Dev he assumes he's done for, but Dev gives him a chance. In the end it is decided that they need two drivers so both Claire and Lister get the position.

Look into my eyes, look into my eyes, don't look at the wall, look into my eyes. You will not be watching Red Dwarf, you will be watching Classic Corrie.



Old School Steve
Steve has managed to get Tracey to agree to change Amy's birth certificate at the same time kind of agreeing to marry her in a year. (Which he has no intention of doing.)

Man, Steve, are you regressing? Your being our old 1996 Jerkface self right now.

My question is, doesn't Liz feel any need to let Deidre know? Are they supposed to be good buds?

Look into my eyes, look into my eyes, don't look at the wall, look into my eyes. When I count to three you will be back watching regular Corrie. One, Two and Three.

What the Hell is Roy Doing?
Glacia shakes her head a bit and comes back to the real world.

Where have I been?

What have I been watching?

What the hell is Roy up to?

Seriously, does anyone have a clue what his little invention is about?

Free Polish Hip Replacements
Audrey and Gayle talk to Blanche about going abroad to get her new hip at a cheaper price.

The thought of going to Warsaw makes Blanche give a responding, 'Nein, danke!'

'Was? Was sagst sie?'

It's been a few years since I lived on the Lakeshore, but it would seem that Polish has changed a bit.

Right then. Charlie was speaking directly to us. I too dropped my pen; the one I use to record Blanchisms.

Three two one, you’re back in the room.

Kenny Craig rules...now what they should do is have a LB/Corrie cross over and have Kenny come to the street for a show and make Blanche think she got a new hip, make Ken think he's an idiot, make Roy hate trains aznd make them all cluck like chickens
