Gus Finds Love

Hey guys, I’m back again. What a week it’s been so far in the land of soap. Did you see Monday’s episode of Corrie? Clurrrrrrrr finally discovered the truth about Ashley and Casey…while the entire nation slept through the storyline. Were you excited? Or did you want them to get on with it and move to something more interesting – like paint drying. Anway, what took Clurrrrrrrr so long to twig that Ashley the butcher was telling porkies (butcher/porkies..geddit? OK. I’ll stop now). I mean Ashley isn’t exactly a Charlie Stubbs (remember him? He’s probably roasting in hell as we speak) or a Tracy Barlow, is he? Now they’re what you’d call proper, proper liars. Even Lucifer himself would look like a complete saint stood next to those two. Poor Ashley is a Conference League liar compared to Premier League Charlie and Tracy. Anyone who’d leave a half-wit like Kirk to look after little Freddie can’t be that clever, can he? I bet even Roy Cropper would be a more convincing ‘player’ than Ashley.
But you know what really gets to me? The fact that we’ve had to endure weeks and weeks of this Clurrrrrrrr, Ashley, Casey love triangle, and yet they’re still with us! I’m ashamed to admit it, but on Monday night I found myself yelling at the TV set: "Jump! Jump and take Clurrrrrrrrrrrrrrr and Ashley with you!" Maybe Damien-David Platt will finish them off. It’s an unwritten soap rule that for every strong character, there are fillers. In Coronation Street, Clurrrrrrrrrr and Ashley are boring, insignificant characters of the highest order. When Fred ‘ah say’ Fred Elliott was alive, the father/son dynamic made Ashley more interesting to watch. However, Clurrrrrrr is no Fred ‘ah say’ Fred Elliott – she’s a poor foil for Ashley and nothing the writers have attempted to do has made them watchable: from Clurrrrrrrr’s post-natal depression to the house fire and now the most tedious, unconvincing love triangle in history. The sooner they’re written out, the better.
EastEnders wasn’t too bad though was it? At last we got to see our hero Gus in action. And what was he doing (in addition to his usual exploits of saving the world of course)? Old Gus was writing sweet poetry. Is there no end to this man’s talents? Once again EastEnders scriptwriters have got things just right haven’t they? Gus writing poetry isn’t stretching the imagination too far now is it? Cos that’s what your average road sweeper does, innit? Sit around all day writing poetry. But hey we’ve got to give them ten out of ten for originality. Not only is Gus writing poetry, but he’s also managed to find himself a new girlfriend.
There was a mix-up over the women Gus and Mickey were dating. They had a stupid argument over it and, in a plot twist that even brain-challenged Jade Goody could see coming, it turns out that both geezers are dating twin sisters. I’m sure that storyline’s been done somewhere before but for the life of me, I can’t remember where. Anyway, let’s see if it works out better than Gus’ last love interest Sonia Fowler. Anybody, man or beast, is an improvement on Sonia.
That’s all from me for now. See you all on Friday for more soap gossip. I’ll leave you with a few lines of poetry. 
Gus Watch:
There once was a Sweeper called Gus
Who made EastEnders viewing a must
His weekly appearance would call for forbearance  
Even Wellard has started to cuss!
