Riddle me this, Corrie fans

Following on from the little mysteries needing an answer from the other day, here's another quandary that's been occupying my thoughts.

How on earth did Karl's friend get the biggest satelite dish in the world up that ladder to the roof of the Rovers? And was he expecting to pick up the footie from planet Neptune? Karl must have got that dish for a song because other than sekrit government installations, I doubt anyone uses that size anymore.

And how come the dish was blamed for interfering with Ken's telly and Streetcars' radio? Those things are *receivers* of signals, not senders. (But do correct me if I'm wrong, please and thank you!)

I also applaud St. Ella the Wonderwoman. In a matter of hours, Karl and Tez got that dish up the ladder and installed and they managed to horrify most of the punters and Stella who promptly chased Karl back up the ladder to take it down, and within minutes, removed said ladder and said she'd already sold it on eBay and he could stay there until the buyer came to collect it. It was gone by nightfall. So someone else had to shoulder it back down that flimsy ladder and all!

Sloppy and unbelievable.

I just thought it was very Jack and Vera - and therefore unoriginal but I guess if you watch Corrie long enough, everything's going to come round at least a second time. Eva's note this week down the back of the till when she took the money from Nick's Bistro? Annie Walker and Bet all over again.

Yes, re the note, when in this day and age, surely Eva would have texted Nick?

Yeah...it was pretty dismal.

So many attempts at "comedy" fall flatter than a pancake crushed under the wheels of a steamroller. It would have been better if the dish had started picking up something it shouldn't like russian TV or whatever. At least there is some attempt at humour though.

If you start questioning the logic or feasibility of Corrie you shouldn't be there in the first place! It's just a wonderful wonderful fantasy.

Just another pathetic attempt by Collinson to get us to like ST. Ella F A I L !!!!!!!!!!
