Update, Now With 95% More Kryptonite



Jamie Can You Hear Me?
The show opens with Danny flopped out on Uncle Mike’s sofa with what looks like Spaghettio stains on his white shirt. Adam comes in to give him a hard time and Danny tells him to shove off.

Leanne meanwhile is having some difficulty telling Jamie that they are through and matters are made worse when Jamie begs her to come around to the house to cheer Frankie up.

Leanne reluctantly goes and there’s a classic scene where Frankie is looking like she’s going to turn into the Incredible Hulk and Leanne is the scared little bunny. Jamie is all, ‘I know, let’s ‘ave some cake! That’ll cheer us up!’

He goes out to get milk and Frankie lays into Leanne who tries to make a break for it, but is stopped by angry mom. Jamie comes back and is all, ‘’Ere, now ain’t dis all better, yeah?’ - as Leanne wipes tears from her eyes and Frankie glares.

That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball.

Later, outside in front of the Rovers, Jamie FINALLY notices that something is wrong and asks Leanne about it. She tells him that when she brought up the idea of the wedding to Frankie, she went all ballistic on her. She suggests to Jamie that they just run away to elope and that way they can avoid all the family agro – which Jamie agrees to.

Leanne tells Frankie that they have called off the wedding, to which Frankie says, ‘I didn’t tell you to call of the wedding, I told you to break up with him.’

Hail Shelly, Full of Grace
Charlie and Jason come in for a pint and Shel….God bless her….goes up and just says, ‘What can I get you lads?’

Cheers to Shel for coming out of the trainwreck called Charlie with all her dignity in tact.

Fear and Loathing in Weatherfield
(Kudos to John for the separated at birth reference)

Bride-cilla is having some problems fitting into Shel’s dress because ‘That girl is as flat as a pancake.’ The other problem being the fact that the dress isn’t spectacular enough and she needs Yana’s help to ‘tart it up’. (I say bring back the wings and add some disco glitter.)

Bride-cilla then sends Les on a mission to find a church for their special day. He tries every house of worship in Weatherfield, but has a problem because the Jews aren’t open on a Sunday, the Catholics won’t marry non-Catholics and the Protestants have issues with marrying atheists.

Bev suggests that he go to the Weatherfield Arms and talk to ‘Father Abraham’ who is a man of the cloth ….I guess kind of in the same way Rasputin was. Les arranges to bring Bride-cilla to his house of worship.

The tin shed disguised as a church is a little less fabulous than perhaps she was expecting, even with the stigmata laden GI Joe.

Beatings ensue.

(BTW…where are all these Jews that live in Weatherfield? They have a Rabbi, they have a synagogue, but we never see them. I want to start seeing a Jewish character! Time for some Hotpot with a side of Matzo.)

Earth Girls are Easy
Martin takes the new mascot lady to the Rovers where they’re having a good time until he makes some joke about her being easy. She looks pissed but then laughs it off.

Then she asks him to put his hands on the table at which point she balances two pints on his hands and says, ‘I didn’t come her to be called easy….you’re not cute enough to talk like that and oh, don’t call me.’

Veronika, Veronika, Her Name is Veronika
First, it never dawned on me that Vera’s name is actually Veronika. What the hell’s wrong with Veronika? That’s a nice name.

Anyway, the other V in the show spent the night with Steve and he has decided to keep her on. This makes Liz happy and Lister not so much.

I don’t know, she’s kind of cute, but I liked the Irish girl more.

Danny Baldwin will be the next Jack Duckworth if he continues with the stained shirts.

Thanks for filling me in on what mascot girl said to Martin as I fell asleep during that riveting scene.

Bring back the Oirish girl!

Oirish Girl was lovely but far too sane for our Steve. Steve only dates borderline lunatics. Moley's nutter husband is out telling cab offices not to hire his wife - you know this will all end in tears.

MOLEY!!!!

Glacia snorts tea out of her nose.

Yes, I know it makes her look like an old school glamourpuss but all I can think of is Austin Powers staring at Fred Savage: "MOOOLLEE!"

I feel sorry for Frankie, for Jamie, even for Leanne. I don't feel sorry for Danny.
