Apparantly tonight on The Hour with Geo Snuffleupagus is going to be on the set of Corrie tonight.
He only uses these Corrie bits as a teaser to get people to sit through the whole show. This stuff only lasts maybe 5 minutes and Geo just doesn’t get why people watch. Ken patiently explained about kitchen sink drama in the 60s and more realistic stories – more like drama than soaps. The Hour was actually interesting last night anyway.
Just before Strombo was on The Street, he did a (surprisingly) good interview with Ben Elton. One of the first shows Ben Elton wrote (before Blackadder) was Young Ones. If you have not seen this, it is about young college students sharing a house. It is pretty funny, and it really helps to have an altered sense of reality, preferably smoke-induced, if you try to watch it. In one episode the guys are trying to make up rent money, so they enter a pub quiz. The name they pick for their team? (Drum Roll, please) DEIRDRE BARLOW!
