A few thoughts on Friday 20th November's episodes

A few thoughts before we start on this week's Corrie - I am always late. I'll be late to my own funeral, me. I have some scrawled notes so in no particular order:

- I liked Michelle crying saying that she'd have to look after the family, because it's true. I really felt for her. She's lost both brothers as well as a husband, and no one seems to care about the poor woman.
- Sean does not look good in orange. It shows up his tan too much.
- I am sick to death of Samia Smith's baby bump issues so I'm really glad she's just told Ma and Pa Connor that she'll go to Ireland with them.
- I felt really sorry for Ryan Connor. He's a good actor, that kid.
- I loveloveloved Becky's peace sign earrings. So her.
- I am sick to death of the loan shark issues and am wondering what the point of Joe is. I'll be glad when that nasty little Neelan fecks off, too. I think he looks like Tony Kebbell who was in Control, though, and I can't quite decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
- I wish Gail wouldn't do that quietspeak thing she does in an 'intimate' setting. That's been bugging me for literally years and I'm sure you all know exactly what I mean.
- The line of the night has to go to David, who, speaking about Joe, said "and for you he's the scrapings of a pretty ropey barrel". Tell it like it is, David!

You make a good point about Michelle, but sometimes she seems completely unfazed by it all. Like after Liam died she seemed to move on quickly, although I guess everyone reacts in different ways...I think Corrie are covering Samia's baby bump pretty well actually. We have only seen it a couple of times, and besides her cushion's are pretty!

Agree totally about the loan shark issues, being dragged out and getting very boring and I dont really care about Joe the Jonah. Cant agree about Ryan being a good actor, what that a joke? He is as expressionless as Carla, at least she has Botox for an excuse!!!

The boy who plays Ryan is a TERRIBLE actor.

Michelle: "Tony killed Liam"
Ryan: "noooooooo. ooo..."

*CRINGE*

I'm with the get-rid-of Ryan Connor camp...although sometimes I think writers (being adults) don't get quite into the mind of kids so can't write well for kid/teen characters... that's been that way in TV and movies.
