They're all watching the Apprentice. I'm outnumbered.
I used to live in Colne. There were no ginnels or snickets near where I was though
Nowt down bottom of hill, but on the side of town behind the Town Hall, iirr.
Anyway, was last nights the worst episode for years? I hope so cos it was fucking awful. Not sure whether the worst bit was the dialogue between evil druggie, Tina and Rita, or the way the cops turned up, apparently with a time machine
It was. It was the pits.
The worst bit was Nick's folded arms when he and Stella were colluding about hot pots in a "storyline" so FUCKING CRAP I can hardly bring myself to type it. I feel sick.
Corrie is beginning to resemble Neighbours in so many ways: the shite storylines, the wooden acting and the feeble plotting are all there.
[off topic] I got the shit kicked out of me in Colne once.
Heated debate with some racists. 1995.
I do hope that Dev catches them out soon, another storyline that isn't working.
At least last night's episode should spell the end of the stupid Rick storyline.
I lived there for a short time in the early 70's. I was living on my own in a rented house and didn't know many people there. I got to know the place a bit better in the late 80's when Jim's cafe was my favorite place to eat. I still didn't know anyone in Colne and I can't remember how come we used to drive there to eat but we did.
Cos Jim's cafe was really good, and the only veggie one for twenty miles??
The best thing about Colne is that it isn't Nelson.
It's still going strong and I keep meaning to go but never get round to it.
mrs b's never been. I must take her next time we visit me dad. Then we wont have to eat his cooking either
Can someone update me, been travelling since Thursday and can't be arsed to watch. What happened with Rick, Sunita etc...
Tina stole Rick's drugs and drove to a canal. So Rick kidnapped Rita and threatened to throw Rita in the canal. Tina swapped the drugs for Rita, and as Rick was driving off millions of cops turned up in cars and nabbed him. Mad Ex-Cop Woman arrived, too, walking. A cop car gave Rita a lift to her wedding.
Sunita dressed up "as Beyonce", and locked Carl in the shop. She looked nothing like Beyonce.
Everyone guessed (without being told) that Maria, Little Liam and Marcus were the Osmonds, despite there being no resemblance. No idea how they knew. They then won the dressing up competition, announced by Stella (who did look a bit like Dusty Springfield). Jason asked the question we were all wondering "Who is judging this?" Nobody answered.
Ken pulled some faces.
Steve should have won for his Elton John costume.
eh? What you on about? Steve was obviously Ozzy Osbourne.
At least we can all agree that he was most definitely not John Lennon.
Oh, and Troubled Adopted Girl is so over Owen beating her up that she even gave up her raffle prize so that Owen and Anna could go away to a spa hotel, heralding him moving in with them as her new Dad. All because he replaced the flowers she stole.
Also Katy, Chesney and Tracy managed to get free of whatever time tunnel / black hole they had fallen into over the last few weeks.
Only the time tunnel had affected Chesney's brain so badly that the only ginger singer he could think of was Mick Hucknell, when clearly someone his age (and hair length) would say Ed Sheeran.
The writers are showing their age, with Faye being told to go as a spice girl, would she even know who they are?
As for Tommy taking drugs into Amsterdam just wtf all round.
Aha; thaaat was the name of the bogey picking kid in The Simpsons. Was wondering today. Ta.
Oh my god, she was supposed to be Beyonce??? Thought she was whore number 2 from Pretty Woman the Musical.
Separate names with a comma.
