This is a new board we made because we wanted television and movies to have a bigger place where no one would be afraid of starting a thread for their favorite show or tv. The kitten is still the place for off topicness in general. Have fun!

Spoilers
About spoilers, you can use this code for now:


Spoiler:
Amazing spoilers revealed before your eyes.


[ spoiler] spoilers[ /spoiler]


If you can't use that code make sure you mark space above and below your spoilers. Thanks!

no space there on the code btw. I imagine if a thread is really popular with lots of spoilers we can have 2 threads. I don't see that as a problem but really only if it is needed. 2 threads per show is the maximum!

Giles: And you're certain she was a robot?

Buffy: Absolutely.

Tara: Well, she practically had "Genuine Molded Plastic" stamped on her ass. (The gang looks at her, surprised.) Just tryin' a little spicy talk.

Don't listen to them much, but I'm always looking for new things because I get bored so easily. Why do you ask?

 Post subject: Coronation Street - UK Soap
PostPosted: Sun Oct 05, 2003 7:04 pm 
I've not watched this show in anything resembling the recent past... CBC Windsor used to air it & I'd catch a little bit while flipping channels... but an article at the BBC site about the character, Corrie. But it's prolly old news... but I thought someone might be interested... maybe??



Here's the article about the news: but, warning: spoilers ahead!!



Here's the article:

Gay life finally hits Corrie's cobbles

by Michael Osborn

BBC News Online



After 43 years on our screens, vintage soap opera Coronation Street has featured the first gay storyline to grace its hallowed cobbles.



On Sunday evening, viewers saw Todd Grimshaw snatching a kiss from snoozing blond heart-throb Nick Tilsley, triggering a malestrom of sexual confusion.



Britain's oldest series is playing catch-up, for its main rivals have long since featured gay characters as part of the fabric of their fictional everyday life.



EastEnders first broke the soap mould back in 1986, when yuppie Colin and barrow boy Barry came into Albert Square, where they went about their business with little fanfare.



And there was a blaze of publicity in 1994 when Brookside's Beth Jordache and Margaret Clemence locked lips in a smooch which had everyone talking.



Corrie's first dabbling with homosexuality will see Todd - played by Bruno Langley - rejected by Nick (Adam Rickitt) and question his relationship with teenage mum Sarah Platt.



First time



But for a soap opera that was created by openly gay man Tony Warren, there has been an absence of homosexual characters gracing the streets of Weatherfield.



"We didn't want to bring in a gay character just for the sake of it," a Coronation Street spokeswoman told BBC News Online.



"We've waited until it came out of a character that's already central to the street. We haven't seen these feelings from Todd before - it's the first time he's acted upon them," she added.



Coronation Street writer Daran Little is gay, and says he was reluctant to create a gay storyline because he didn't want to appear as if he had jumped on a soap box.



"When asked why there wasn't a gay character in Corrie, I used to quote Tony Warren, whose answer was 'The Street is camp enough,'" he explained.



Warren had a point, with brassy, bouffanted barmaid Bet Gilroy and tragic soap siren Elsie Tanner heading the queue of characters who possessed a certain flair.



Potential



"I'm glad that the first gay character isn't a screaming queen, sipping cocktails in the Rovers dressed in pink Lycra," added Little.



Radio Times soap columnist Alison Graham thinks Coronation Street is handling the story very well - but admits she doesn't know why it has taken them so long.



"If Todd suddenly leapt out of the closet as a fully-formed gay man it would be laughable," she said.



"Corrie doesn't just parachute people in for a few weeks to then disappear again."



"They wouldn't just have the kiss and then forget about it. The potential is there for this story to run on. It doesn't just feel like they're ticking a box."



The world's longest-running soap's first gay outing is up against the ongoing fallout from Dirty Den's sensational return in Albert Square.



A same-sex kiss in Weatherfield will prove less shocking than a return from the grave, but this first may create a long-running gay storyline which has been well worth waiting for.





skittles



...In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful. Strive to be happy. -- from Desiderata, Max Erhman, 1927

I have a quick question about on-topic-ness in GMP. Would this be the correct forum to start a TiVo thread, or should that go in the kitten? I looked in both the kitten and in GMP and didn't find a TiVo thread.

We just got TiVo and I'd love to discuss with other kittens the technology, tips, and what shows we're planning to TiVo. (Last night I set up a Wish List for Alyson Hannigan, and Amber Benson wasn't listed, etc...)

Anyway, if a mod could let me know the best forum to start a thread like this I'd appreciate it. :)
