But Jesus That Was a Boring Episode – Update

bored2

Okay, okay, okay….I’ve been lax with my Thursday updates I know. Here goes, you quickie.

Where in the World Is Frankie Domingo?
Nathan comes around to tell Roy that Frankie is in Spain and it’s up to Roy to later tell Danny that Frankie is in Spain.

Danny is worried about her and Leanne is worried about Danny being worried about Frankie. Danny assures Leanne that even though he can’t turn his feelings off about Frankie, that Leanne is, like flying cars, the way of the future.

Later, in the Rovers, Danny approaches Jamie about Frankie and Jamie once again reads the riot act. “It’s got nuffin’ ta do wit you. She ain’t you wife anymore, hear?’

Not one to turn his tail or look foolish, Danny retorts that everyone can think what they want, but at least he’s stuck by Leanne.

File comment that under, ‘WTF?’.

He actually expects Jamie to congratulate him on being faithful to the girl he schtumped behind his son’s and wife’s backs. No congratulations were given.

Danny continues on that he has proven everyone wrong when they said Leanne was just a fling….and to prove it even further, he announces that he and Leanne are getting married.

Leanne, in her excitement, promptly gives birth to kittens.

This was the most exciting part of the show, and even that didn’t wow me.

Did You Hear the One About the Shopkeepers Daughter?
Dev is brining in furniture to accommodate Amber in the flat and all the while Kevin warns Dev that he’ll have to keep an eye on the bonnie lass.

Dev, poo-poo’s the warning – so much so that he doesn’t worry about leaving Amber alone while he goes out and parties over the weekend.

Kev tells Dev that he’ll keep an eye on her for him.

(Kev and Dev – hee hee, that’s funny.)

Number 6 Update
Charlie evil. Tracey loyal. Barlow suspicious. Keef still pissed and wants to move to Sheffield. Craig doesn’t want to go to Sheffield and asks Kev to talk Charlie out of the eviction notice. Keef asks Ken and Deidre to talk Charlie out of the eviction notice.

Roy also gives Keef advice on how to handle a bully like Charlie. Hmmm, in Charlie’s defense, didn’t he get rid of the guy who was bullying Roy at the café? Perhaps the best way to deal with a bully is to get a bigger bully.

(Glacia thinks of Charlie and goes off into a twisted harlequin romance daydream.)

OAP Cold Case File
Moley is walking around buying cream puffs for everyone and generally acting like she hasn’t a care in the world.

Until she sees that Les and Kev have noticed the damage to the streetcar she was driving.

Then she looks kind of green around the gills for the rest of the episode.

Are You My Father?
Sean keeps trying to get a hold of his father who won’t return his phone calls. He explains to Eileen that his father tends to run hot and cold so he’s not sure what to expect.

There’s some discussion at the bar that I missed, but I think he decides to go visit his dad and Jamie offers to come with him for moral support.


TEENY-TINY SPOILER ANNOUNCEMENT. NOT REALLY A BIG DEAL, BUT DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU ABSOLUTELY DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT’S COMING UP.





Denise and baby Daniel (now about 11) are coming back to the street. They’ll be on the show April 2007 in the UK which means we’ll see them sometime around 2013.

Denise is a woman that Ken was lovers with back in 1996, they had a child and live together for awhile until Denise had an affair with her brother-in-law.

She broke it off with both men, but in the end, ran away in the middle of the night to Scotland* with Daniel and we’ve all wondered when the spawn of Ken would return.

Personally, I couldn’t stand Denise and her hair so I’m not happy to see her return, but the fact that we get to see Daniel makes me throw confetti in the air.

Scotland is a country that became a popular refugee camp for Corrie characters in the 1980s. It took over from Canada as the run away hotspot, but has now given way to Spain.

Note to self: next time I run over an old geezer, if I buy cream cakes for my co-workers, all is hunky-dory.

My PVR presented me with last nights episode sans sound. Were there technical difficulties last night? Half sound? No sound? Sporadic sound? Or is my PVR haunted (again)?

Dev is an idiot. Amber is going to have a 'Girls Gone Wild' weekend while daddy dearest is in Ireland.

I loved Dev's newfound parenting skills:

Arrange flight to Dublin for weekend piss-up.

Ask Kevin to look in on the kid.

Purchase 13" TV for daughter to keep her occupied while he's away. Give her the keys to your liquor-stocked dépanneur.

What could possibly go wrong?

Jacqueline, Thank you, thank you for
your great update. I live in Peterborough and my CBC channel showed an episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond" instead of Corrie! To say I was angry was an understatement. It had better not happen again tonight!
Thanks again.

Sadly, you forgot to mention the riveting sight of Nathan and Jamie painting Frankie's walls egg yolk yellow, while Violet watched.

Yaaaaaawwwwwwnnnnnn!

Oh, and Eileen dropped by to ask Violet to check up on Sean's quest for his daddy.


Mmmmmmfffffff -- stifled yawwwwwwwnnnnn...

Yep, pretty freakin' slow, except when one laughs at the thought of Keef and Craig wandering the street looking for people to help them with Charlie.

Denise had the worst hair known to man, and was such a selfish character. I knew Daniel would come back. Well, you'd have to be a right Muppet not to know Ken's other son whould come back.

There seems to be a lot of kids coming to the street. Interesting.
