Corrie Weekly awards Dec. 25 - 30

Infantile behaviour award: Nick going ballistic over a cassette tape, making assumptions and causing Leanne more stress. I think Peter won that battle reminding Nick that Leanne has already had one miscarriage.

Tear Jerk award: Lily pretending to talk to Mummy on her phone and David continuing the conversation. *gulp*

Throwback award: When the barman asked Peter what he would have, he answered "Now, there's a question". (Elsie Tanner's last words on the show in January 1984)

Post Mortem: Toyah and Toby raking their marriage over the coals.

Teenage hell award: I feel for Bethany and her emotions and her crushes. It's all very realistic. She's really just a kid trying to figure out what growing up is all about.

It's Not The Size Award: Andy sold the tablets which he must have had in that big duffel bag, three times the size of the doctor's bag where he took the tablets from and which would have held far more than just tablets. The envelope with the money wasn't large either. Why the huge bag?

Best Dressed award: Gemma and her Boxing Day glitter. and special mention to Eccles the Elf!

Continuity fail: Liz was supposed to be in Spain on Christmas Day but was behind the bar on Boxing Day. Toyah told Roy that Leanne was in hospital. Simon told Peter Leanne was visiting Janice. Which is it? If the visit thing was a lie so Simon wouldn't worry, that's just wrong. He's not 5 even if they still sometimes write him that way.

Musical ambiance: Phelan is threatening Andy out back of the pub to "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" playing inside the pub (a bit of Canadian content, by the way, Bachman Turner Overdrive)

On Christmas day's episode, a choir sang "Last Christmas", a song from Wham and George Michael. Nobody would have guessed that he would have passed away that day. Boxing Day in the pub, Michaels' version of Last Christmas was on the juke box. I wonder if that was dubbed in at the last minute? Seems odd they'd have used the same song two days in a row otherwise.

Lines of the week:
Tracy "Why do joggers look so smug?" (Nick jogging across the road). Peter "It's nothing to do with jogging. He was born smug" (yes. yes he was)
Peter "'Barlow', Viking word for 'Welcome'" (and now we know why he wasn't bothered at Toyah showing up!)
Peter "It's Christmas Day and I have got a brain!"
Michelle "I've had toothbrushes with more culture than you" Sally "Oh Carry on, it's just chip paper in the window of life" (none of this made any sense and it all felt very awkward!)
Todd "Is Jason coming home for the wedding, because you'll want some guests"
Norris "Look at us. Three wise men and a Mary"
Jude "Merry Christmas, Mum"
Leanne "Praise the Lord, the Spirit of Christmas is resumed"
Bethany "What kind of stupid idiot falls for her mum's boyfriend. Twice" (an emotional teenage girl, that's who)
Tyrone "I don't like jelly. You can't trust it. It's the way it wobbles"
Peter "I can explain. It's not what it must have looked like" (playing tonsil hockey is playing tonsil hockey no matter how you try to explain it)
Norris: Emily to Peru and now you (Mary). It's beginning to look like you're all trying to get away from me" (what was your first clue)

I have to say, the New Year's episodes felt a bit choppy. There's confusion over Leanne's whereabouts which must have been around a lie to Simon as to where she was. Cathy hasn't been seen since the wedding and shows up in the pub alongside of Roy. Little Jack was still up when Kevin got the breakdown call for Johnny and, after cutting directly to the pub, it seemed like it was 10 minutes to midnight. Quite late for a 5 year old to still manage staying awake.

Andy sold the computer tablets (iPads) he stole from the Bistro. Hence the large rucksack. Not the medication he stole from the Medical Centre, which he used to poison Phelan's drink and was (I think) in liquid form.

Tvor said...

Ah, I saw him carry the rucksack after he stole the pills and I thought that was also after he sold the tablets and gave Phelan the first lot of cash.

Maybe TPTB are just messing with our heads over pills and tablets.

Re: best dressed, she wasn't wearing anything special but Steph really has the classic beauty thing down. She looks totally gorgeous sitting next to Gemma.

I feel that the Christmas episodes were also very choppy. I didn't watch them on the day shown and was actually confused as to what day it was when I was watching it, Christmas or Boxing Day, neither being particularly Christmassy. With so many having their dinner a few days before. The Phelan/ Andy and Bethany story didn't really cut it for me.

And what's happened to the once steady vicar Billy who used to guide parishioners such as Emily to bring and buys, meetings, get togethers. He's more like a giddy,silly teenager and doesn't seem like the same character or person. He's only changed job, not personality.
