Tony Gordon It's Sunday: the world's worst mother edition

please note no spoilers were used in the preparation of this post

Well I think it was rather nice of David to do some free renovation work at Nick's swanky apartment. Yes, I know, he only did the demolition part, but still, he was fast, efficient and cheap. Wish I could find a contractor like that (Try Psycho-Contractors Ltd.  "100% satisfaction guaranteed - or we'll kill you"- ed).

Anyhoo, it looks like we're back to that David "Nutter" Platt situation, again. How long can Gail stand it? Her rent's going up, she does all the shopping and David calls her the world's worst mother (got the mug - ed). And how long will it be until the Platts figure out that all the bad things that happen (yes, even the Hindenburg disaster) can automatically be traced back to Son of Satan.

Ah well, how about a few memorable lines from the week that was:

Beth has a lot of jokes about Roy's ghostly cafe:
Q: Why did the ghost cross the road?
A: To get to the other side

(she's got a million of 'em)

David ponders the mystery of nutbar-ism to Kylie:
"What makes someone want to kill their own family?" 
(genetic dissatisfaction?  Gail? too much free time?)

Gail to Max:
"I'm frightened of water"
(that could explain her 'one bath a month' rule)

Steve to Ryan about handling babies:
"You have to approach a dirty nappy like an unexploded bomb"
(yes, get a remote control robot to diffuse it)

Mary offers to make Emily some tasty edibles which she calls:
"Greedy girls' girdle buster"
(registered trademark, I believe)

Anna to Tina:
"You are one conniving little cow"
(no disrespect)

Mary tells Emily about Norris' flawed approach to RISK:
"Norris has never understood that the key to success is controlling Asia"
(For God sake, I pray that she's talking about the board game)

Well, faithful co-Corrie watchers, that's it for another week. Looks like David is ramping up for a binge of evil. Ho Hum. Once you've seen one car driven into the canal, you've seen them all. 

Anyhoo, I was thinking of changing the name of this weekly feature. After all it's been a while since ol' Tony Gordon was around and Luke Skivewalker (our IT intern) says we can get better SEO if we call this feature something with the words "Coronation Street" in it - you know, so people can like find it. I dunno, sounds radical to me. And what's SEO anyway? 

Have a great week and let's hope David returns to Nick's apartment to finish the renovation work. Cheers!


  1. My suggestion is "Return to the Rovers - My Friday Corrie Review. The XXX Edition.

  2. Thanks very much for the comment and the suggestion. I'll check with Luke (Skivewalker) and see what he says. I like 'Return to the Rovers'. All the best.
