Corrie Weekly Awards July 11 - 15

It's all in the presentation award: Gemma's kebab decorations!

Rage on Rage off award: After his wedding went belly up, Nick hasn't had any more problems with rage, not even when Robert was giving Leanne a hard time.

Sabotage award: Kylie played a trick to get Michael and Gail in the same room. It worked!

Illustrated Man award: Billy (ok, Daniel Brocklebank) has tattoos!! (...You're welcome)

Musical ambiance: "Wild World" when Gail was a bit confused about the broken door handle that Michael had come to fix.

Demon child award: I know every body is different, but Leanne only had sex with the unknown man on June 27 and she's had morning sickness all week. Bit early, innit? At least she didn't do the cliche faint, I guess.

Pants on Fire award: Caz is lying about a lot of things not least an impending court martial. Leanne is lying about being pregnant to Steph.

Nanny Fail: Where was Mary? Asha and Aadi are always her first priority so if they get an unexpected day off school, surely Mary would be the one to look after them, not David offering Kylie's services.

Fashion WTH? Audrey in a bike helmet means Audrey was riding on the back of a motorcycle????!!!! I did not see that coming!

Brian Tilsley Mark II: Ladies and Gentleman, I give you Brian Tislsey, 1989, stabbed outside a nightclub defending a woman. Kylie Platt, 2016, stabbed outside a kebab shop defending her old mate. Is there really any major difference? Even Gail brought it up. The real difference was the superb aftermath with Kylie reconciling her life before she died. Still, it was tragic and sad and I did shed many a tear.

History throwback: I'm very glad Gail brought up what happened when Brian died and she had to tell Nick and did it the wrong way.

Shock and Awe award: David howled. My heart broke. What an episode!!! Best performances I've seen all year.

Lines of the week:
Todd to Billy "May I tempt you inside to see my Bird of Paradise?" (snort)
Todd "I'd like the chance to give this one a glowing review. Like Trip Advisor for vicars"
David about Gail and Michael "Oh aye, made for each other. Like Judy made for Punch"
Gemma, singing, "We built this city on sausage rolls!!!"
Gail "Oh put your violin away. You were the one that dumped me for the Weatherfield bike!" (it's a good think Eileen didn't hear her say that or there would be another rolling struggle on the cobbles!)
Audrey "I've never begged a man for a date and I never will"
Luke "Your old enough to be be my grandfather" Freddie "But you're not good looking enough to be my grandson!"
Gemma "Just because I don't use a wooden fork to eat my chips doesn't mean I'm some massive thief"
Kylie "Life's what you make it. You don't like it, you change it" (*gulp*)
Gemma "I'm proud of me, too. And I don't say that very often" (awwww)
Gail "We need to talk" Kylie "I intend to. One to one. Mam to Mam"
Audrey "If that's highbrow, I'd rather be thick"
Kylie "I can finally chuck the umbrella and catch some rays"
Kylie to David "As far as doctors go, you make a great hairdresser"
Gail to David about telling a child his parent is dead "It was just about the worst conversation of my life, and it's had some competition"
Lily "Pinky swear"

Where is rveryone when you need them?Aside from Roy,I was disappointed that the Street was deserted and noone heard David's screams of anguish even though Kylie was stabbed right outside the kehabab shop.Chesney seemed more concerned about Gemma than Kylie!
I wonder if the kehabab shop will be a crime scene and closed and if Alex will keep his distance from Gemma whose silence about CLayton and Macca hassling her led to Kylie's death?

What? Have you read that back? I really don't understand. It's kebab shop too. Sorry to be pedantic

I think it was deserted as it was a closed set. Рrobably filmed much earlier than recent eрs - Kylie looked less рregnant. This was to keeр the gossiр to a minimum I susрect.

It needed to be deserted, that scene belonged to David and Kylie, I wouldn't have wanted camera shots of the other residents to interfere with the absolute trauma that was happening.

Tvor said...

Absolutely. This one was incidence of artistic license that was necessary to tell their story.

Yes, though I did expect Kylie, David, Max and Lily all to be mown down by a huge truck as they were talking on their phones in the middle of the road, without ever looking out for traffic.
