Corrie's surrogacy storyline - splendid or stupid?

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog September 2012, reposted to this blog with permission.)
I'm hating every minute of the surrogacy storyline in Coronation Street. It's a complete farce and I can already tell it's one of those storylines I'm going to have to endure for the next few months instead of enjoy. 

First off - how on earth Gary and Izzy were ever going to raise the thousands of pounds needed for the IVF treatment in the first place were never explained. Then Owen pops up saying he'll pay, so that's all sorted. Now we've got Tina who offers to pop out a baby to pay off Tommy's debts and then Tommy tries to leaves her. 

Why on earth didn't Tina take Rita's offer of the money? She could have given the money to Tommy to pay off Tyrone and get that nasty Kirsty one off their backs once and for all while paying Rita back at leisure. She's in no rush for the money, is Rita. She's loaded.

Anyway, this fan's opinion is - despite fab acting from my two favourite Corrie actors Mikey North and Cherylee Houston as Gary and Izzy - this surrogacy storyline is the daftest, dullest thing Corrie's done in a while.

What do you reckon?

Stupid, in my opinion. It's all moving way too fast for one thing. Gary is far too focused on this - I think some thoughtful reflection is in order, from all parties. Rita's reaction was very puzzling, to say the least. Tommy's was understandable, but he really is turning into Tina's dad, and if this keeps up, I hope he ends up in the lake as well. Izzy doesn't seem 100% certain - shouldn't that be taken into account? At least we got those poor kids and their own new baby out of the picture.
Faye is going to be a wonderful Corrie meddler and gossip!
And how soon we forget the sorry beginnings of the Windass family!
