Simon’s clearly upset and when he launches himself at Peter, begging him not to leave, will Peter be persuaded to change his mind?

That's fast becoming Simon's signature move isn't it, launching himself?

Frosty the Snowman said...

More throwing arms around waist. Simon is now becoming ridiculous. In Frosty's opinon the actor although cute when younger, no longer fits the part. He should have gone with his father, the man that fought so hard for him not to have a good life with millionaire Grandad George.

At least we now know why Cilla was brought back - to give Fizz a refuge during her real life pregnancy. And we'd figured that the place Owen and family to go to was the bookie's flat. Katie's write-out plot is bit lame, and it's obvious that Ann Kirkbride's disappearance caught the script writers completely unaware...and has caught Ken's limited acting abilities like a rabbit in spotlights! What William Roache's acting sons make of him I cannot imagine.

David - its been obvious since day one why Cilla was brought back with this rather unbelievable brittle bones story. I totally disagree about Ken, he is an 80 something man and does pretty well considering. If you see any of the old episodes of the Street when he was an angry young man, he had real fire in his belly. As for Dierdre, if she was not there for scenes that she was really required to bem may as well write out the character permanently as she is now superfluous to requirements.

Agreed. Simon is not so integral to the plot that he couldn't go with his father (although I suppose I wouldn't want my pre-teen child to live with Peter Barlow on his own...). Unless he's the father of Faye's baby...his storyline isn't that important.

Humpty Dumpty said...

Poor Alex Bain, he will never live down the awful character he has become in Corrie. Tptb have ruined both him and Peter, but Chris G will get back on track in another role pretty soon. Simon hasn't been allowed to grow up. If he'd only done the arm flinging once in a blue moon, it would have had much more impact. It would be good for Simon to now have a male role model who would make him more believable: Uncle Jason, perhaps, as others have said, or Zeedan (via a faint link with Leanne and Kal) who could teach him cricket.

Zagg said...

I do not understand why Leanne is upset over Gary & Alya. They are both single. Neither are related to her. She's a blond dating Kal, so why can't red-headed Gary date Alya? Really...what business is it of hers? I seriously do not get it.
And Simon....yeesh.... he's getting creepy to watch. Poor kid has had horrible scripts to deal with. Maybe he needs to leave for awhile and come back...reinvented. On second thought, maybe not. Every time they do that, the character comes back like
Satan with an bad accent.

The writers have to either let Simon act his age or send him off to live with his father (I prefer the later). He is what 12 years old and is written like a 5 year old. I liked the character when he was little but now I find him annoying. The kid has absolutely no friends or interests like most kids his age. Peter is behaving like a jerk. All his life he blamed all of his problems because his Dad sent him and his sister to live with their grandparents. Now here he is doing the same thing except the woman he is living his child with isn't even a blood relative and his Grandfather is in his 80's. Disgusting!

Just a repeat of the airport scene with Peter jetting off with Carla, leaving Simon alone with Leanne etc...ffwd and he's doing it again. WFT..let the kid go and live with his rich granddad and have done with it already. Talk about rehashing-OTT IMO.

DdI agree, the Simon story line is getting really old. He is no longer a five year old and his crying jags and temper tantrums are very annoying. Let him grow up and live with his grandpa already.
