Tony Gordon It's Friday: The Norris's News Edition

spoiler alert: this post makes reference to the November 3 episode on CBC

I got an earful from Judy at the Tim Horton's today. Not only does she hate those vanilla lattes that they have to sell the upscale punters, but she doesn't like any of the storylines on The Street.  Not Becky and Steve (too repetititve). Not Tina, Graeme and friend (too goofy) and not David and Kylie (too psycho).  Funny how such a dramatic tram crash can peter (you mean Peter? - ed) out so quickly. And, ironically, even though we're watching five hours of Corrie a week, the memorable lines are few and far between. But anyway, here goes:

Graeme consults the oracle (Ken Barlow) for advice about Xin's dilemma:
('What Would Ken Do' - probably take a long walk along the canal)

Claudia is skeptical of Audrey's friendship:
"In the world of coiffure there are no friends, Audrey"
(just colourists)

Mrs. Hargreaves is enjoying her head massage from David in the salon:
"This lad's playing my head like Liberace"
(well, he has been in juvy. They learn all sorts there)

Sean is disgusted by the sight of David snogging Kylie
"It's like watching a snake swallowing its tail"
(Actually I think snakes are more lovable)

Kylie needles Gail while the radio is playing a Lady Gaga hit:
"Pokerface: they're playing your song Gail"
(Well, in fairness to Kylie, she does have a point)

Mrs. Hargreaves is still making lewd comments to David:
"You can have a rummage in my tall boy anytime"
(I think he'll have to take a raincheck. He's engaged to a slag)

Mary unveils a new sign for the former Kabin:
"Norris's News"
(hmm I prefer Cole's Corner or Fussbudget's Finest)


Well, fellow Corrie lovers, it's been a strange week - not a stellar week for good stories. I never thought I'd say this but I'm beginning to miss Baby Jack. I certainly miss Blanche. Even Nick's painful face would be better than some of the crazy stuff that's going on. Still, things change quickly on the Street. Let's see what happens over the next few days. Till then, thanks for stopping by. It's great to have you drop by Blanche's Polish Hip. Have a great weekend.

  1. I must agree with Judy, all the storylines right now are lacking. Lately, it has been very frustrating to watch it. It seems all the 'evil scammers' have been winning lately.
