I miss the Kelly's, I wish Tom and Rose's relationship had worked.
It is getting rather silly now but I will keep watching for now, not sure I will when Angus Deayton comes into it, depends on the caracter they give him.

Why has Kevin started to be so nasty to Chalky?

Michael and Chrissie are now closer after that kiss.
I think the chemistry between the two actors is pretty good - only problem is they seem to have given Michael a character transplant - I actually like *this* character but it's not Michael as has already been established (if that makes sense).

Goodness me, it's not that bad.

I mean you're all tuning in every week, so it must be doing something right.

i'm not tuning in anymore, i only need to read the spoilers in 'whats on tv' to hear all about boob jobs and afro brothers winning the lottery and all this shit to know i'm better off not tuning in. i gave up for good halfway thru the last lot of 10 episodes but i had stopped watching a few times before that before foolishly giving it another chance. no more chances now though, i'm thru with it!

I wish they hadn't brought the Barrys into it. I can't understand much of what they say, so have to use the subtitles

And because they have cast the brilliant Zoe lucker, it means thar she will feature in most episodes, which is really good for the actress and im really happy to see her but it doesnt fit in with Waterloo Road. We only would see the parents at home once in a while, the only way they can saviour her is to have her work at the school,but i cant see that happening

She got rich through setting up call centres. There was an episode a year or so ago where some of the pupils had a day at one of her centres as work experience.

And it was done in series 4 with Janeecethe writers clearly have the imagination of a dead woodlouse.
That storyline was necessitated when Chelsee Healey had a boob job.

I don't know about that - ineffectual **** who accomplishes nothing but shagging an endless series of teachers; sounds pretty much like Michael as he's always been.

well whatever. the point is how many times do they need to repeat the boob job storyline? its crap once, let alone 3 or 4 times. this show just repeats itself over and over and to make it worse the stuff its repeating wasn't even good the first time! this suggests to me a poor writing team with no imagination whatsoever

people still discuss the show as though its actually worth being taken seriously - its been a joke since the second half of series 4! continuity and consistency is non-existent and the whole thing is a disjointed mess and crappy storylines repeated time and again. the first 3 and a half series were good, after that a joke!

I only tune in because it is filmed local to me and I like to spot where they have been and whose house they are filming in etc. If it weren't for that I wouldn't watch at all.

For the first time I think I disagree with nearly everyone on this thread. I found the first ten episodes of series eight to be a lot less enticing than normal, I wasn't as hooked- though there were some strong storylines. However- these first three episodes I have LOVED. I'm getting used to the new characters, and really enjoying the storylines that are playing out.

I love the addition of the Barry's every single one of them. I have finally started liking Lorraine and Sonya- and I love Michael and Chrstine's developing relationship.

The only thing I am not enjoying is the change in Nicki's character. I used to really enjoy her but her bullying of Scout is horrid to watch.

Every episode seems to start at this residential home with scout arguing with that red headed girl.
