They should have recast Ken's son and grandson that were cast with Bill Roache's son and grandson for the 50th anniversary stunt. Have the grandson, who was a gay schemer, cause drama for Billy and Todd. 

 

I've totally forgot about those 2. I would've been all for James coming back and causing drama for Billy/Todd. 

 

I was all for them making Adam dastardly and whorish like Mike was, but making him some drug dealer is just too much. Why isn't he over in that factory, wreaking havoc and trying to reclaim it? I'd be all for that instead of the drivel he's getting now. 

 

I don't care for Daniel either, but I am glad that he busted up Sinead/Chesney.

People always said Chesney dragged her down, but she's just as annoying without him and he's a lot better with Gemma. I think she needs to be killed off. 

 

I found a few short episodes of some cheesy UK "soap" from 1996 you might laugh at. I'm going to start a new thread for it. 

 

I don't really watch Corrie much these days. Are you enjoying it?

I can't wait to see these clips you're gonna post. 

 

I am not enjoying Corrie much lately. I'm not enjoying EastEnders or Emmerdale much lately either. I think once Ashley's time to meet his demise nears, I will come back.

So did you see David showing his ass (and nearly his pubes) on Emmerdale a few days ago? I never know how they get away with it...

 

All the soaps are a mixed bag these days, some because they just keep killing time, most because they just don't know how to pace stories. 6 episodes a week will always be too much (hell, 4 is too much for EE...).

Now you know I saw the scene with David...:P Someone was talking about it on Twitter and I had to go peek and see for myself.

 

All these soaps need to revert back to 3 days a weeks. Possibly 4. They shouldn't be doing more than that. They are gonna wound up and become played out like our soaps are if they keep it up.

I'm not understanding the drug story for Adam either. It seems character-destroying to me. Ken screams at him so he responds by peddling death?

Oh, thank God, it seems Adam isn't intending to become Britain's Next Top Drug Dealer. But with Ken burning the money, he's going to have to repay that debt some way, isn't he?

 

I am not really interested in Sinead and Daniel's baby drama. I hope they do something better with it.

 

Liz with the cowboy hat, talking about Betty, and the glamorous loo was great.

OK, so what is Nathan's ultimate goal with Bethany. Is he a sex trafficker? They made a big deal that she was a virgin and he deflowered her himself? I thought he'd sell off her virginity to the highest bidder in Dubai or wherever.

 

I know it's not cool to be mean to child actors but the one who plays Liam is the worst.

 

"Trexit"? Nice one, Tracey.

Excellent news, YRBB! Thanks! I think that must be because the contract with Hulu ran out.

You're welcome. I was very excited when I saw the email advertising it. I'm glad they did it -- you can't beat the quick upload and quality, although it seems like each episode expires after 5 days or so...
