Movie Time Update

Before I start anything, I will tell you that last night I dreamt that Sally and I went shopping for fedoras for Mr. Glacia and Kevin. We had to shop at the police station and I gave her sound child raising advice by quoting The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran:

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

Then we had lunch with Madonna and Dick Cheney.

Just thought you ought to know.

Now on with it, troops!

The Name of the Rosie
At the beginning of the show we see Audrey complaining to Keef that Sally has snubbed her and that it feels bad because no one has ever snubbed her because she’s a people person. (No one ever in the history of Corrie Street has ever, ever snubbed her or had a conflict with our Audrey. Hmmm. Of for God’s sake, EMILY has been snubbed on more than one occasion.)

Anyway, she feels that Keef should be a bit more heavy handed with Craig and that he might actually need a slap upside the head. Keef takes the Gabrin school of thought and says that they have to just trust them.

Meanwhile, Sally’s freaking out because Rosie’s grades are going down. Kev says that the more they agro Rosie and Craig, the more things are going to be worse and that they just have trust them. Sally tells him he’s out of his mind.

Back at home, Sally decides to go rummaging through Rosie’s purse and when she’s caught, she tells Rosie that she was just looking for a pen. Rosie is understandably upset and tells her that what she’s looking for can be found in the pencil case.

Yep, birth control pills.

The entire Webster household loses it’s mind and Kev goes marching across the street to confront Craig. He has him down at one point on the ground and Craig tells him to hit him. (I’m really confused if Craig really wants to be hit or not. He’s kind of making references to what his dad would do and tells Kev that maybe what he needs is a thump. I don’t know, it was a bit confusing.)

Careful what you ask for Craig…Kev can really give er – as Deb has pointed out.

Kev backs off, but back at the house he decides that because what Craig and Rosie are doing is illeagal, he will call the police. I was wondering why they didn’t think of this earlier.

Three Factory Workers and a Baby (s)
Kelly, Fizz and Sean are over at the shop fussying over the twins. Dev has taken the babies off of Sunita’s hands so that she can get some sleep. Dev is really a big mushpot with the babies and is bragging about how well he can take care of them.

Amber comes waltzing into the store, like, telling everyone and sundry about her agro with the bus driver, right when she sees the babies, man. She’s all happy to see them, her lil’ brover an sistah, like and man wants to know if Dev and Sunita are getting back together. She then sees Danny and asks Dev if that’s his boyfriend and has he caught gay.

Danny maintains that they’re just good friends.

At this point, Dev turns into a big fat jerk and pushes her out the door for disturbing the babes.

Amber’s mom comes back a bit later and tells Dev that he’s broken Amber’s heart with the way he treats her and then she breaks down into tears about how she’s loosing Amber to Dev and he doesn’t even care about Amber.

Dev looks nonplus.

Hey, Amber kind of reminds me of young Bet from that clip we saw of her first appearance on Corrie. In 40 + years, will we see Amber as manageress of the Rovers, big beehive do and big ass birdcage earrings?

Romy and Roy’s High School Reunion
Roy gets an invite to his school reunion and doesn’t want to go because everyone he went to school with were jerks to him. Haley really wants him to go and pushes him on the point.

In the end he decides to go because Clifford (of newsletter fame and who was lower on the social ladder than Roy) is organizing it and he wants to support him. Also, he wants to go because he’s proud of Haley, the cafĂ© and their life together.


Jason Maquire – You had me at ‘I’m sorry’.
Sarah is ranting and raving about Jason to Audrey and Gayle and wishes the Grimshaws emigrated to Australia or some place farther.

Later in the pub, Galye and Eileen have a truce like chat about the kids and are pleased that Sarah has run the gamut of Grimshaw boys and that they might not have to deal with their kids dating one another ever again.

But that was just tempting the gods, ladies.

Soon enough, Sarah and Jason both go to the bar to order drinks at the same time. There’s a show down of looks and he apologizes, she kisses him and both mom’s develop an ulcer.

Violet walks into the pub just in time to see this and says that at least he’s helping her stop loving him.

Short Film Category
Jamie comes to the factory looking for Mike. When Danny tells him that he’s in Spain, Jamie’s pissed that he’s been left out on his own in a foreign country. Danny then wants Jamie to have lunch with him, Jamie tells him to piss off.

Jesse got a job interview.

It's funny. I was thinking the same thing about Amber. She working class and mouthy, just like Bette. There's a potential classic Corrie character in the making there.

I like Keith's line: "Kids aren't projects. They're people." Amen!

Kevin has finally given into the dark side of the force...

I am of the opinion that the police are going to laugh at Mr & Mrs. Webster when they file their complaint.

If I were Keith and witnessed Kevin punching my 15 year old grandson I would be the one calling the police hoping bully-boy Kevin and his shrew of a wife would be charged with assault.

I think Craig is crying out for some leadership and discipline from a male adult role model type.

I don't think two 15 year olds sweating up the sheets is breaking the law. A legal adult and a 15 year old doing the horizaontal limbo would be breaking the law.

Amber rocks. Dev sucks.

This whole story line about Dev and Sunita makes me sick. I wish they hadn't introduced the notion of him having other kids. The girl playing Amber is doing a terrific job, but somehow I liked Sunita finally happy. I think she should be able to get her head around the Dev issue and move on. Make an attempt to correct his past.
As for our pal, Craig....can you just see the social worker sitting down with that head case. "So...your sister killed your Dad, your Mom covered it up...your sister offed herself and now Mom's in prison...and you want to boink the neighbours 15 year old daugther and they have an issue with that?????" Seems like the kid needs a hobby.....

Amen to that! ^

Dev is making it very difficult for me to wish him a happy ending. His behaviour this episode was absolutely atrocious! Getting the factory girls (and Shaun) to do his dirty work while going on about what a great father he is, treating Amber like nothing more than an intrusion, showing no compassion whatsoever to her mum. I was hoping Sunita might forgive him, but now I'm not so sure he deserves it. He hasn't changed at all.

John said...

I think it's pretty clear that Dev has issues with women in that he clearly does not see them, any of them, as equals. That's why he was so excited to have a son, after fathering 83 daughters.

Yeah Dev is a chavinist...they should get rid of his character really. But if not, since the actress who played Sunita is not coming back, they should have Sunita die from head pain problems and have the baby twins come to live with Dev. That would make an interesting story line...

I love the camera and editing work lately. Lots of one door closes/ aother opens scene changes. But when Jason kissed Sarah and the focus shifted to show Violet framed between the two lustbirds . . . it was cinematic!
