We're days away from moving house now, and with a whole lot of packing still to be done, we decided to make this a somewhat shorter than normal episode of the podcast - though that's still only short by our standards, of course, so there's still nearly two hours to listen to!
In our final Street Talk segment recorded in the place that's been home to Conversation Street for the past nine years, we chat about the episodes of Corrie shown in the UK between the 6th and the 10th September (Episodes #10422 - 10425).
It's almost as if Corrie knew we didn't want to spend too long on this edition of the podcast as there were only four episodes broadcast this week rather than the usual six, and what a great set of eps they were! Continuing the momentum set up by last week's courtroom drama, this week's action saw both Kelly and Laura take the stand - though it quickly became apparent that getting her mum to testify was about as good a decision for Kelly as agreeing to go out to the wasteland with Corey that fateful evening in May.. We may not have been too surprised by the final verdict when it was delivered on Friday, but the last few scenes of the episode had a couple of developments that made our jaws drop - and actually led to a podcasting first for Michael..! Similarly to last week, we also had a couple of unnecessary appearances from a handful of other storylines on Monday: Eileen and George finally get together after fall-out number 327, Curtis gets bladdered and we're both convinced he has Munchausen's, and Hope's got the back to school blues and our Michael can empathise - perhaps throwing slime at a display board might be an idea for letting off steam for him too..?
We decided to give the feedback section a miss for this episode, but we couldn't possibly ignore the Kabin, considering how well Corrie's done in the awards this week, picking up a hat-trick from the TV Choice and the National Television Awards! We chat about our reactions to who won what, who gave the best acceptance speech and, for the first time in a jolly long while thanks to the pandemic, we give our commentary on the fashion of the night at the NTAs!
