Sunday Canadian Corrie Comments, November 20
Jim figures he can come up with the dosh. Oh really??? He's been out of prison how long? Does he even have a job? He's talking about a Great Aunt leaving him money but he couldn't even cover the whole bill at the Bistro. Funny how Liz suddenly got a lot more interested in a reconciliation when he said he'd buy her the pub. No wonder he's desperate to do whatever it takes. He's always wanted her back. I think Becky letting Liz know their plan was probably a very big mistake. As if Liz needs another reason to hate Becky. You'd think Liz would be anxious to get the pub all to herself wouldn't you? And she spends so much time in Spain, what difference does it make if Steve is there? Looks like Liz and Jim are back together! Yay! I always liked them together and I think the actors have great chemistry. Steve seemed pretty pleased, as well. Loved that little scene between Jim and Owen in front of the pub.
Marc saves the day for the Bistro opening and makes up with Claudia. You know, they make a good couple. They look like they could be related! Tight jaw, deep voice, the lot lol Ah but Marc has a secret and we've found out what it is. He wears really bad wigs and dresses up in women's clothing, goes out on the town and gets beaten up! It wouldn't be so bad if he had any fashion sense. But that wig!!! And why didn't he take it off in the police station? So Audrey could see him in it of course and the secret would be out. Pretty contrived if you ask me. I guess if you're caught with your pants down and your skirts on, you might as well keep the wig on too. Audrey was a bit aghast but took the shock rather gracefully even if she couldn't really get her head round the fact that Marc is sometimes Marcia. Even she knows Marc can't change who he is.
Looks like the mommy wars are in full gear. Can i just say right here and now i really find Cheryl and her gormless son very very dull? Having said that, it's also nice to have a break from the high drama and sensationalism, just having two moms scrapping over their kids, one upping each other. Far more realistic. Leanne is making Simon audition for the school play and he doesn't want to. Russ does but it's Simon that gets the part. Cheryl then puts the pressure on Leanne because she's got to make the costume.
Tracy and Becky are still at odds over Amy, too, which Tracy nearly destroying a picture Amy made for Becky. A crumpled paper can never be made like new again. The new Bistro is open, it looks very suave and sophisticated. Faye's come to staye. (yes i spelled it that way on purpose). But it looks like it's going to be a big adjustment curve. She's so overly anxious that her new family like her that she's trying too hard and stealing to try to buy their love. Poor chicken probably doesn't realize what a real loving family is like. Why would she lie to Gary about Eddie hitting Anna? Now with all the trouble she's caused, is it me? Or is Eddie starting to go off the kid?
John's home but still seems kind of fragile. Fiz is the one lying now, trying to cover for the fact that she's posed as Colin's wife, accepted the inheritance and used a bit of it for things for the baby. Sweet little scene with him holding the baby! Chesney and Katy are scraping for money already but they weren't the ones that took the money she was hiding. It was that little madam, Faye! Only she didn't know there was money in the handbag, she just nicked the bag for Anna. The whole point of it was to give John suspicions and you know, Fiz is a terrible liar!
The War of the Websters continues. Sally seems to be getting more on the score sheet, knowing exactly what to say to shut Kevin up when he starts posturing and hollering. But Kevin did get one point when Sally thought he sent her roses which she hates and he brought the remains to the pub where he knew she was with Jeff. He never would, though, because he'd know she hates them. But Jeff doesn't. However, wasn't Jeff there when Sally thanked him for the lilies and said they were her favourites? So why did he send her red roses? Oops! Kevin ups the ante and buys her a car but even that doesn't work and Sally scores even more points in front of Ty and Tommy as well.
Norris has no business giving Graeme and Xin marital advice and warning. I don't see him telling David he's getting married too soon and too young. And he doesn't like Graeme any more than he likes David. And Graeme figures he'd be up the creek with just one slip. You mean, like Norris catching you and Tina snogging? Oops! Meanwhile, Graeme's jealousy is aroused when he sees Tina come out of Number 9 with a shirtless Tommy but nobody else understands why he's upset since Tina is a free agent. And do i see cracks in their relationship already? Graeme's speech was very clearly for Tina who was stood behind Xin. And Rita sure raked them over the coals for "disrespecting" Tina who was hiding behind the sofa and when she found out they tricked everyone? Wow, there wasn't much skin left on the pair of them! Tina thought she didn't have anywhere to stay. Can't she move back into the flat she owns with Jason? Surely that's been rebuilt as well?
Audrey is signing over the salon to David. I see she's making it conditional on her staying in charge in the foreseeable. He's not ready to manage the place on his own yet. But really, slagging off Kylie when they knew David would be coming to sign the paperwork was a bit of an "Oops!" Gail is perfectly within her rights not to like Kylie but knowing what David's like, it's only going to push him to her more and she could lose him altogether if she pushes. So what does she do? Bribe the bride! Very good move. I don't think. Ivy Tilsley is alive and well.
What a wedding! Tacky vol au vents and kebabs! I suppose it suited them though.
Kylie and David's Wedding Album and that lovely place where they got married? I've been there! It's called Ryecroft Hall and there's photos of the
Wedding locations in real life comparing photos i took with screen shots.
