FROM TERMINALLY ILL TO DEADLY DULL
Can you have a Golden Age of f Tedium? The Street’s brilliant writ- ers are now managing to come up p with some of the most flaccid plots s since The Kabin ran out of bon n bons.
The eternal MLI ( Make Lloyd d Interesting) campaign has gathered d pace with a sort of unkempt weasel l taking up residence between Lloyd’s s nose and chin. On Monday, they pull l out all the stops when, after a race e and an argument with Steve, Lloyd’s s life hangs in the balance (right). Just t give me a pair of scales, I’ll tip that balance in my favour. On Wednesday he’s forced to re-evaluate his life. A life away from Weatherfield, with any luck.
Everything involving sport and the gym is coma-inducing, as is everything involving Maddie, whose big storyline this week involved her brother moving to Devon. Hold the front page!
Then, on Friday it’s the turn of Izzy to cele- brate dullness, when she confesses that she dipped into the charity money to pay a bill.
Of course, not every week can feature the intensity of a terminal illness or love triangle, but we’re not talking mere pockets of tedium here – we’re talking overcoats.
At least Friday sees the return of Peter after his stint in rehab. Let’s hope he had more fun than we’re having on the cobbles at the moment.
