Monday May 18th – The He’s Still Got It Update

UK Time Friday August 1st 2008 – Episode I

Dont YOU want a piece of this?

Don't YOU want a piece of this?

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!

In Other News

Becky tries to convince Michelle to go back to Steve. Michelle later sees Steve talking to his daughter in his living room, in his house, which is in his pub. Michelle tells Steve to go up to read Amy a story for bed then leave his house which is in his pub that he owns where Michelle has lived for about 15 minutes.

Kevin is kind of broke right now. I wonder how that happened.

    Thanks Debbie for the update and translations. Due to the stupid background music they play so much lately, I miss the finer points and am lucky to get the gist of these conversations.

  2. beanie says:

    Deb you are right on as usual! Mr Bean thinks Prem and Bollywood are setting Dev up for something.I hope not because that’s been done with Fred and Orchid.It’s getting painful to watch Dev make a complete A$$ of himself

    Please let Michelle go away….far far away! There is nothing they could write that could spark an interest in her unless it’s her demise.

  3. missusmac says:

    Did I miss the part where Liz thought it was ok for Steve to leave the pub? I would have thought she’d at least have Steve seeing sense.

    Not sure what’s going on with Harry either, and am sensing there will be a Ken breakdown soon. Ken can be such a pretentious jerk, while Harry is just being jerked around by two women.

  4. Gayle says:

    I’m not liking the Prem character, I find him a pompus ass. I think Dev is so hard up for friends he’ll tolerate anything.

    As for Michelle…ugh, she has got some nerve ordering Steve to leave after he puts his daughter to bed in his home above the pub he owns! When will we see the back of Michelle, I cannot stand her. I don’t understand why Liz hasn’t said anything.

  5. haili says:

    Liz seems to be so pre-occupied with Harry she doesn’t pay much attention to Michelle and Steve, but somebody must be minding Amy while he sleeps elsewhere.

    Liz and Steve need to assert themselves soon.

    I don’t trust Prem and the gang.

  6. Gayle says:

    Haili: I was thinking the exact same thing about Prem and the gang. To use a word from the 70’s are they swingers? Something just not quite right. Prem is too swarmy for words, he gives me the creeps!

    • beanie says:

      Prem referred to another couple on the golf coarse as ‘swingers’ and I think he meant it in the 70s way.

      • Bea says:

        I think poor Dev has gotten himself into more than he bargained for. I can hardly wait to see what heppens.

  7. Jody says:

    That Michelle is so bossy to Steve but he is an ass to put up with it! Becky’s makeup looks like a drag queen.
