UK Time Friday August 1st 2008 – Episode I
So, I guess the writers are really trying to get me to care about the whole Clarissa/Harry story line but it isn’t really working. I came to like Harry but this is just poorly done.
Anyway, the show opens with Harry and Clarissa in the car. Harry wants to apologize to Liz but Clarissa doesn’t want to. Moreover, Clarissa doesn’t want Harry going in there however he makes it known that he has no intention of heading to a bar across town (or over the road to the Weatherfield Arms) for a drink because of Clarissa.
Later, Harry manages to get Clarissa into the Rovers to apologize to Liz for her childish behaviour. It was clear that she didn’t mean it. Of course she and Liz do a good job of slagging each other off.
Harry and Clarissa decide to stay for a drink or two while Liz and Deirdre discuss the obvious atmosphere. Liz is really trying to get her own back on Clarissa. As the pair leave the pub Liz and Clarissa fire off some shots at each other before they head out the door. I don’t know how long this is going to last for.
When I look at the foursome heading to France I can’t help thinking that one of these things are doing its own think, while three of these things are kind of the same. Early in the day, Janice was at the salon getting her hair did. Audrey discovers that she and Bill will be kickin’ it in the same hotel as Janice and Roger. In all honesty, I wouldn’t want to go on vacation with Janice ether.
Later, Roger, Bill, Audrey and Janice load into the car. Audrey packed as much as she could for the two-night journey. Janice commented that due to Audrey’s luggage they would have to leave back four boxes of wine. Audrey made a quip about Janice being partial to lager. Janice responded commenting on Audrey’s taste for “Mother’s ruin.” I loved it.
Once they were all loaded into the car Janice cracks a can of Newton and Ridley. One for the road.
Now, on to the spice. After months of our pathetic Dev Watch updates we finally get something juicy for our street Casanova.
Dev is on cloud nine a bit because he met the woman of his adolescent dreams. I imagine that he’d feel the way I would should I meet Eric Shultz of Some Kind of Wonderful.
Later on, Prem shows up at the shop so that he and Dev can talk about how rich he is. In the pub they discuss the creation of an Asian Business Alliance. Dev thinks this is a good idea. Then Prem’s wife, Nina, calls. She would like to invite Dev to dinner. I bet she’d make a tasty dish for him. Dev accepts the invitation.
Dev arrives at Kanye’s Prem’s house. He steps into the gilded palace and is introduced to Lisa, Prem’s accountant. The three of them discuss how rich Prem is before dinner is served by the Bollywood Goddess Prem is marred to.
They have a great dinner discussing how rich Prem is and finally Dev and Nina end up alone clearing the table. Then Nina throws down. She basically says, “If you wanna tap this, drop a dime.” Whaaaaaaaat!
