Coronation Street: Can I please adopt Tyrone Dobbs?

Reposted with permission from fab TV blog: PauseLiveAction

Monday’s Corrie was a total heartbreaker. Married only a year ago, Molly and Tyrone Dobbs quickly fell into a life of cosy domesticity. This may have carried on indefinitely, had Molly not had a taste of the thrilling excitement that is Kevin Webster. By the apparently simple expedient of exchanging one dozy, hairy mechanic for another, she’s realised that she wants more from life.

“I want more from life,” she told her confused husband. He was confused because he’d already given her a karaoke machine for Christmas – what more from life could you want? You can’t be subtle with Tyrone, so she spelled it out for him. “I don’t love you any more.” Well, Tyrone’s little face. Alan Halsall doesn’t often get to do much acting that doesn’t involve tucking enthusiastically into a pie/a pint/a good karaoke session, but when he does, he can break your heart.

Sadly Tyrone’s not the brightest spanner in the toolbox, and the best argument he could come up with to get Molly to stay was “We were the new Jack and Vera.” Who, apart from Tyrone, wouldn’t find that idea phenomenally depressing?

It's like kicking a puppy isn't it!

I wish MY man got me a karaoke machine. That's really all I need in life. haha, all kidding aside. I can understand that Molly wants more from life, but going after another man (seemingly trying to make someone else improve her life) isn't the way. Why doesn't she try getting a more rewarding career to obsess over instead? Go back to school or something? I think she's just BORED, and that boredom has nothing to do with any man in her life, since as you said she's only exchanged one mopey mechanic for another.
