First of all, I can't believe that Carla has actually accepted to be Peter-the-bigamist's lady in waiting. What's his secret? Why does he have multiple women swooning over him despite his many shortcomings (and tattoos -ed)? Does he have a special brand of Axe Deodorant for men (now with nicotine - ed)?
Now let's get to the two 'turkeys'. I'm talking of course about two sub-par story lines that just don't make any sense. First of all, there's Owen versus the Platts. This feud started, believe it or not, over the theft of a plastic Heron which Owen installed next to his beloved fish pond. To me this story seems like a hokey rerun of the 'stolen garden gnome' incident. This occurred several years ago was when someone was stealing Derek and Mavis Wilton's beloved garden gnomes - which was amusing given Derek's supercilious personality. But with Owen, it just seems out of character with his rough, edgy builder/entrepreneur persona.
The other turkey is the contest about... turkeys. Rita and Emily have a flash fight in the Kabin about who can cook a better Christmas dinner. It comes out of nowhere and seems completely out of character for both women. Now they're hell bent on having a contest to see who can cook the best Christmas dinner. Wake me when this one is over too.
I apologize if I'm being a bit churlish about this but there's got to be more to Christmas on the Street besides a plastic heron and a couple of turkeys...
